Lady Amelia’s Secret Lover is a historical romance novel with a decidedly modern bent: Lady Amelia Hathaway’s marriage has gotten stale over the past six years, so she decides to take a lover. She makes no secret of her intent – but what her husband doesn’t know is that Amelia’s real scheme is to win him back. Will the plan work well enough to earn Amelia the passion she deserves from her husband? Or will it backfire drastically, sending him into the arms of a flesh-and-blood lover of his own?

As you read this e-book, author Victoria Alexander will pop up onscreen at various points in the novel to talk candidly about the plot’s turning points and her vivid characters. This multimedia experience will draw you into the novel with words and insights directly from the famed romance author!

Lady Amelia’s Secret Lover also includes a preview excerpt of Victoria Alexander‘s forthcoming novel, Secrets of a Proper Lady.

Have you guys seen the new video ebook by Victoria Alexander that Harper Collins Publishers have released? It’s an eBook with extra video snippets of the author herself, guiding you through the story. Izzy, Holly and myself were fortunate enough to get a sneak peak at this exclusive feature that HCP (Avon) is coming out with and personally, I think the video snippets are a great addition to the story. They don’t really take away from the story but in my opinion enhance the reading experience.

In the beginning of the story, there’s a snippet of Victoria Alexander introducing herself and then giving you the synopsis of the story you’re about to read and then she starts the story off and you continue to read. Then in between chapters and big moments in the book, you’ll see VA pop up again to share her thoughts with you and it may sound corny and a bit much, but to me, I quite enjoyed it.

I’ll have my review up of the book Lady Amelia’s Secret Lover soon but I’ve got to say that so far, I’m really enjoying it. I haven’t yet read a book about what happens AFTER their happily ever after and this book has an interesting twist which I’m greatly enjoying. It’s a good story and the characters are charming, witty and very entertaining, I can’t wait to finish the book.

Right now they’re offering a free preview of this new technology. You can read the first chapter of Lady Amelia’s Secret Lover and see the first video clip of VA.

Go check it out!
