From GoodReads:

To Do:
Swim naked in the moonlight
Play in a high stakes card game
Ride an elephant
Be painted sans clothing.
Take a lover…

Lucy Merryweather has inherited a fortune—and her great-aunt’s list of unfulfilled wishes. What better way to honor her memory than by accomplishing as many of them as possible? And with Lucy’s family an ocean away in New York, nothing stands in her way—if one ignores the private investigator hired to spy on her.

Yet Cameron Effington is infuriatingly difficult to ignore…

As a reporter, Cameron is always looking for a good story. An American heiress running rampant between Millworth Manor and Mayfair is the perfect subject. Not to mention captivating. And extremely kissable. And if Lucy believes he’s a detective? Well, the truth should never get in the way of a good story—or hinder delicious, impetuous passion…


Why I am waiting…

Victoria Alexander is perhaps one of the quirkiest writers I have ever head the pleasure of reading.  Her novels bring to mind the screwball comedies of the 1930’s.  The plots can be a bit silly, and the situations just get more complicated as the novels progress.  I have to remind myself not to read them in public–I make people nervous when I crack up over a book.

Really, they are simply mahvelous dahling!  This one seems rather intriguing.  Especially the list! Some of those actually sound rather run–mostly riding an elephant.
