From Booklist

At 25, Emily Sinclair considers herself a spinster, hence free to pursue her own adventures. But her father and bombastic stepmother have other ideas: she is to be married in one month's time to her stepmother's nephew. Aghast, she agrees to marry with the stipulation that if she finds someone else in the meantime, she can marry him instead. Emily is determined to cram as much adventure as she can into her one month of freedom, and as she sets off in the rain to her good friend's house, she literally runs into a tall, dark, and handsome stranger. Brandon Davenport, viscount Ashwood and confirmed bachelor, can't get over the unconventional sprite who nearly runs him over. Pretty and rude, she sparks his imagination. Neither knows the other's true identity as Emily gets Brandon involved in her escapades, and it takes them longer than the reader to figure out the obvious solution to Emily's problem. Emily's joie de vivre is contagious, and Goodnight's romance is irresistible. Maria Hatton

Kurzbeschreibung

She needs to find a husband but in truth would rather not.

Miss Emily Sinclair has just answered the summons that will change her life. On the eve of spinsterhood, she is offered a month to find a willing gentleman or suffer a marriage to her stepmother's odious cousin. Neither choice seems palatable.

He wants to remain a bachelor and is weary of marriage-minded misses.

Lord Brandon Davenport has had more than enough of marriage--the infidelity, the gossip, the inconvenience. It has all reaffirmed his conviction to never involve himself in such a predicament.

Of course, need and want are very different matters...or are they?

When the two find themselves grudgingly paired in the ambush of highwaymen, temper is matched equally with desire, leading Emily to realize that Brand is the perfect prey for her husband hunt. But is Brand too cagey to be caught in her trap?

5.0 von 5 Sternen an enchanting writer with a charming tale 25. Juli 2005
Format:Taschenbuch
One of the things I enjoy as a reviewer is discovering new writers. Too often readers - myself included - go with what we know. The author that delivers the same thing time-after-time: Nora Roberts, Jayne Ann Krentz, Linda Howard. Only after reading these writers for decades, they are "comfort" reads. Like that old fuzzy sweater you curl up with on cold winter days. It's faded, nothing special, but you know it will keep you warm. Readers opting for that often will grow bored with Romance writing in general. Then it's time to branch out, find new voices. Reviewing gives me to chance to check out new talent and I am often surprised how refreshing it is to come across a new voice that has a fresh view on the basic formulae. Sure, they might not be as polished as Roberta, Krentz or Howard, but they bring something even more enchanting - passion! - a burning enthusiasm for writing that the big names often don't have anymore. Alyssa Goodnight is one of these delightful finds.
The plot is nothing really new. It's what Goodnight does with it. At twenty-five, Emily Sinclair is a spinster, firmly on the shelf, so has the advantages younger marriageable age misses are not permitted. However, she is burden with an overbearing father and shrew of a stepmother who are determined she marry within a month - to the worm of a nephew of the stepmother. Worn down, Emily agrees - with the provision if she finds another marriage proposal before the month is up, she marry this man instead. In a huff, and determined to grab life by both hands before she is caged up and married against her will, she crashes into Brandon Davenport, Viscount Ashwood.
Brandon Davenport is weary of the marriage mart and being a target for mothers with lasses needing titled husbands.

5.0 von 5 Sternen First-Rate Historical Romance 26. Mai 2005
Von J. Nusz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Emily Sinclair is now firmly "on the shelf." At age twenty-five, just having had the momentous birthday, she's now considered a spinster. And, quite frankly, she is very relieved. Since reaching such an advanced age having successfully avoided the trap of marriage to someone she doesn't love, Emily can now get down to the business of living her life. She longs to have a "grand adventure" and is sure that she will, now that she's safe from the matchmaking machinations of her stepmother. After all, even her stepmother has to admit that no one would want to marry a spinster - heiress or not.

Emily is quite surprised to find out that her father has a totally different plan in mind for her - one that does not involve the slightest bit of adventure. Instead, his plan will see her married in one month's time. Even worse that than is the fact that her groom has already been hand-picked by her interfering stepmother. Unless Emily can find a suitable replacement in 30 days, she will be wed to an evil, spendthrift, snake of a man.

Brandon Davenport, Viscount Ashwood, has so far successfully avoided the marriage-minded mammas who have been so intent on throwing their available daughters his way. However, the social scene is beginning to wear a little thin. Brand is sick of the pale, polite, ever-so-proper moneygrubbers. As a self-made man, despite the fact that he had no need for his own money being in line to inherit an earldom as he was, Brand finds the pretentious behaviors of proper society to be very off-putting. Much to his own father's dismay, Brand has decided to retain his bachelor status - without producing the requisite heir. That is, until he meets a red-haired termagant riding in the woods.

Thrown together in a secret partnership to rid their peaceful countryside of thieving marauders, Emily and Brand find that love is not the myth that they thought it to be.

Author Alyssa Goodnight has crafted a superbly imaginative tale in UNLADYLIKE PURSUITS. Not only is the story extremely well written, but it holds the reader's attention in the way that only a truly good story can. Once picking up UNLADYLIKE PURSUITS, I couldn't seem to put it down. Ms. Goodnight's novel has all the qualities of a first-rate historical romance: realistic and engaging characters; sweet and sexy romantic encounters; a fast-moving plot; an engaging historical setting and a feel-good ending. Rife with humor, tenderness and romantic subtleties, UNLADYLIKE PURSUITS gifts readers with that most coveted of reading experiences: escape from the daily grind into the welcome fantasy of a fairytale filled with love and adventure.

I highly recommend that historical romance lovers grab a copy of UNLADYLIKE PURSUITS. I know I'll be looking forward to reading the next book by this talented author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for Romance Novel enthusiasts 20. Dezember 2004
Von Marcia R. Graves - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It was difficult finding time during the holiday season to read, but once started, I found I couldn't put the book down. The book was fun, exciting, full of intrigue, and had me totally captivated. The development of the characters was very well done, and the unexpected twists nearing the end of the book were suprisingly suspenseful! A must read! I look forward to more novels by this author.

2.0 von 5 Sternen S-L-O-W... 8. September 2007
Von GK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If a book has an overwhelming amount of 5-stars, I usually dismiss the one or two negative reviews when buying it, but this time I should have paid more attention to them.

I will not rehash the plot, and will only say about the characters that the heroine acted more like a compulsive thirteen-year-old with total lack of judgment than a woman of twenty-five. This was a poorly connected story; the detailed explanations of what people were thinking and feeling-in case the reader was incapable to make her own conclusions-and the slow and convoluted way this tale developed were all lengthy and repetitious. I decided to skip pages to move things along on my own, only to find out that, no matter where I stopped to read, I seemed to be in the same place I'd left off.

I agree with one of the reviewers that some parts were witty and well-written, and I especially agree that Ms. Goodnight needs, without a doubt, a better editor.

I hope Ms. Goodnight does not do what I did and pay attention only to the 5-star reviews; this is just the beginning of her career and we welcome new writers and fresh ideas. I'll be looking for new titles under her name, as many will, too. Simplify, don't underestimate the readers' intelligence, learn to string events in a cohesive manner, live your characters and give them depth and consistency.

In the meantime, I'm rereading my Lisa Kleypas' and my Julia Quinn's.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exciting, breezy, sexy romance 30. März 2005
Von Lynne D. Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I really enjoyed this first time novelist's writing. She has a great grasp of character and a real sense of fun. It was very involving and a fast-paced read. Lots of admiration for her strong-willed heroine who defies her upbringing and tosses all sense of decorum out the window to lead her adventurous lifesyle. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a delightful and involving story.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Longwinded 20. Oktober 2012
Von mary.t. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As I seem to begin most of my reviews these days, all the ingredients were there in this book. A spinster, opinionated beautiful heroine and a rakish hero. The first part of the book dragged interminably. There was a meeting between the H and h and then she went to tea and OMG I thought I was in another book! The author waffled on about her best friend and her romance and highwaymen and secret assignments.. I got a bit lost. Then finally the hero returned and there were some interesting bits. There was one love scene and it was written well. I think the author has potential and if she could tell the main story without all the meanderings off, it would have been a better book.
