Desires of a Perfect Lady by Victoria Alexander

Goodreads Description:

A secret list of the desires of Lady Olivia Rathbourne: 
Disregard convention
Follow my heart
Bed the Earl of Wyldewood 
A decade ago, Olivia had expected to marry the Earl of Wyldewood, only to have happiness stolen from her before his ring could be placed upon her finger. Now he stands before her, as proud and arrogant and handsome as ever, vowing to rescue her. Well, he's got some nerve turning up after all these years. Where was he when she needed him?
As for the earl, scandal has never touched him nor has impropriety ever besmirched his name. But his penchant for doing the expected does have his family calling him, well, dull. Isn't it time to flaunt society's conventions and do what he's always wanted? And first on his list: Olivia in his bed—with or without a wedding.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

My Review:

I enjoyed this book.  I haven't read the first in the series and it stood alone and I wasn't lost at all.  The romance is entertaining and satisfying.  I felt sorry for all Olivia had to endure with her husband and for what he does to her after he dies.  I loved the treasure hunt, even if it seems highly improbable.  Great read
