Very fun Victorian-era romance set in an Italian castle (because why not?) featuring three English ladies and three English gentlemen who end up forced to share the castle thanks to a mix-up with their holiday leases. This is the first in a trilogy -- and events of the three books take place partially simultaneously, meaning you finish this one and immediately want to read the two sequels to find out how the other characters' romances develop. The protagonists in this one are Alexandra, a spirited widow, and Finn, a genius scientist/inventor. It's hard to describe the tone -- it's not quite laugh-out-loud funny, but instead strikes this odd note of being rather sly and silly in a way that is really enjoyable to read. I picked up this book because Juliana Gray is the pseudonym of historical fiction/chicklit writer Beatriz Williams, but will be reading the rest of these romances on their own merits alone, because this was a very fun, fast read. Highly recommended for romance readers looking for a new author to try.

Alexandra, Lady Morley, an alluring widow, is on holiday to escape her creditors and devise a plan to reverse her fortunes. Distracted by the arrival of Phineas “Finn” Burke, a brilliant inventor with a shocking past, she despairs of ever getting what she needs…until they kiss.

Finn, naïve to the female species and intent only on perfecting his “horseless carriage” engine for an exhibition in Rome, never dreamed he’d meet a woman like Alexandra, who is as maddening as she is comely. Finn longs to make Alexandra his wife, but his own vows stand in the way…unless Alexandra can sacrifice everything she knows to realize her deepest desires.
