Sir Alexander Thornton is sorry the minute he makes a wager with his best friend as to who will kiss a maiden first. Alex’s chosen target is the lovely Lady Blythe, but her stern older sister Emmeline stands in his way. How can he get past this spinster chaperone, especially when she’s the one who captures his heart?

Picked this up for 2.26 on Amazon Kindle (temporary sale price) takes place in the late 1500's, time of Queen Elizabeth, though it felt more like a Regency in tone. Entertaining and moved at a fast clip, and Alex Thornton is a hot hero with many intriguing layers. Hey, I even liked the heroine for once! A very good read.

Love this series!! Emmeline is quite taken with Alex from the first time she sees him and vice versa. He is there to steal a kiss from her younger sister, but Emmeline feels like forever to the rogue. Winning her isn't easy, but in the end they both win. Great read!!

It was a great read.

An enjoyable light read; starts off prosaic and lacking spark but *quickly* improves!

[1588, England:] This book is the second in Gayle Callen's "His" series; Book 1 is His Betrothed, which features Viscount Spencer Thornton (the brother of this book's hero, Sir Alexander Thornton) and Book 3 is His Bride, whose hero is Sir Edmund Blackwell, Alex's best friend. I have not read the first book but was easily able to follow the plot, so it's not a problem if you read the series out of order.

Re-Review: Sir Alexander Thornton where can I find a guy like you in our world today??? I mean, you've been a really really bad, bad boy! LOL.. Well this second book of Gayle Callen's His series is very, very cool!

The story goes...Alex Thornton is your average rake. Due to a wager he must get a kiss from a maiden. Not so hard but it IS difficult for her chaperone and sister is no other than the uptight miss, Lady Emmeline. Alex must win the wager, he must get the kiss and he must escape Emmeline

I enjoy Callen's books. And normally I'm.amazingly forgiving when it comes to historicals. But I had to wonder. The book theoretically takes place in 1588, but it reads exactly like Callen's regencies. If I pretend it was 1829 instead of 1587 then this book gets a 4, just cuz I liked the story itself. But in context? WTH? Definity no 16th century setting or characters.
