The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress (Millworth Manor #5) by Victoria Alexander

The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress (Millworth Manor, #5)Historical Romance
From Goodreads:

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.

This is another fun romance from Alexander.  I loved the characters.  Lucy has always done what expected but for now she is free to do the unexpected.  That leads to some really great laugh out loud moments. 

Cameron Effington is just trying to prove himself to his father.  It was fun to watch him dig himself into a very deep hole.  His action added to those laugh out loud moments.

Lucy’s adventures and Cameron’s actions fuel the plot.  The tension in the story revolves around the actions of both Lucy and Cameron.  Wondering what both would do next kept me reading and laughing.

The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress is a fun addition to the Millworth Manor series.  If you are a Historical Romance fan and like humor in your stories check this one out. 

The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress is part of a series but works well as a stand-alone.

Kensington published The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress in 2015.
I received an ARC of The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress from Netgalley in return for n honest review.
