Review from The Romance Reader:
When the Earl of Trent is invited to a private meeting with Pandora, he decides he will have her as his wife. Pandora is reluctant and comes up with a game to play - Max must prove he is her hero. What better way to prove heroism than to perform the Twelve Labors of Hercules!
Pandora is certain there's no way the Earl can complete the tasks. After all, how can he defeat the nine-headed Hydra? Or defeat the wild boar of Erymanthus? Or capture the wild bull of Crete?
As Max conquers each task, Pandora grows more in love with him, yet she is not sure he loves her. No declaration of love is made by either Pandora or Max, and Pandora vows not to marry without love. Will Max be victorious and Pandora trapped in a loveless marriage?
THE WEDDING BARGAIN is a satirical, yet sensual, but definitely enjoyable Regency romance that pokes fun at the marriage mart. The story line never lets up as Max toils through the "Herculean" tasks to win the hand of his Dora. The lead couple is a delight due to their constant battling and the support cast, especially their mutual best friends, adds depth to the plot. Victoria Alexander has written a triumphant romp that will elate fans of historical romance regardless of era preference.
