Set sail for love in this sparkling new adventure in #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander's Lady Travelers Society series. Harry Armstrong has spent years in Egypt, recovering relics and disregarding rules. Now he's back in England with a new title and a new purpose: penning his exploits. But his efforts are overshadowed by London's favorite writer about Egypt-a woman they call The Queen of the Desert, of all things. Worse, her stories-serialized in newspapers and reprinted in books-are complete rubbish. Miss Sidney Honeywell didn't set out to deceive anyone. It's not her fault readers assumed her Tales of a Lady Adventurer in Egypt were real! Admitting her inadvertent deception now would destroy her reputation and her livelihood. But when the Earl of Brenton challenges her to travel to Egypt to prove her expertise, accompanied by his dashing, arrogant nephew, what choice does she have but to pack her bags? With the matchmaking founders of the Lady Travelers Society in tow, Harry is determined to expose Sidney's secret. But the truth might not be as great a revelation as discovering that love can strike even the most stubborn of hearts.

"Marian Hussey masterfully narrates this grand romantic adventure. Sidney Honeywell writes travel adventures as "Mrs. Gordon," though she has never actually been outside of England. Harry, the Earl of Brenton, who is writing a book about his years in Egypt, seeks to expose her as a fake. The two end up in Egypt as part of a wager, accompanied by the three elderly founders of the Lady Traveler's Society, who are also travel novices, ironically. Hussey's crisp delivery is the perfect complement to the author's witty dialogue. Sidney's excitement over seeing Egypt for the first time is unmistakable, and Harry's cynicism is the perfect counterpoint. Hussey's narration juxtaposes these two characters beautifully, and listeners will laugh out loud at their elderly companions' antics. L.C.L. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
