viscountsvow-1-1024x372The Viscount’s Vow –  Synopsis

 

The Viscount's Vow CoverAmidst murder and betrayal, destiny and hearts collide when scandal forces a viscount and a  gypsy noblewoman to marry in this Regency romance, sprinkled with suspense, humor, and inspiration.

Half Romani, half English noblewoman, Evangeline Caruthers is the last woman in England Ian Hamilton, the Viscount Warrick, could ever love—an immoral wanton responsible for his brother’s and father’s deaths. She thinks he’s a foul-tempered blackguard, who after setting out to cause her downfall, finds himself forced to marry her—snared in the trap of his own making.

 

When Vangie learns the marriage ceremony itself may have been a ruse, she flees to her gypsy relatives, declaring herself divorced from Ian under Romani law. He pursues her to the gypsy encampment, and when the handsome gypsy king offers to take Ian’s place in Vangie’s bed, jealousy stirs hot and dangerous.

 

At last, under a balmy starlit sky, Ian and Vangie breech the chasm separating them. Peril lurks though. Ian’s the last in his line, and his stepmother intends to dispose of the newlyweds so her daughter can inherit his estate. Only by trusting each other can they overcome scandal and murderous betrayal.

 

“A brilliant tale combining Regency romance with exotic Romani culture.”

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a lush, amazing historical romance crafted by an author who knows how to write living, breathing characters and place them in a story with a bit of mystery, a lot of romance, and even a bit of comedy. I was so immersed in the story that I often forgot where I was. Be prepared–the book is longer than a normal romance, but it is well worth it.

I will be honest–the bedroom scenes are pretty intense. They don’t leave a lot to the imagination, but I honestly never felt dirty as I read them. They were told with a sweetness and even an innocence at times that left me quite breathless and tingly. The profanity was there but fairly minimal. There were Christian principles throughout–even Biblical quotes and prayers.

I think what I appreciated more than anything else is that this was not filled with fluff like so many historical romances. There was historical merit to the book, but it never lost its focus–romance. I was able to learn about the Romani people, and I was impressed to find a woman who kept herself pure until marriage (so often, I find myself reading about women who didn’t). I can recommend this book to any of those out there who would like to curl up with a well-written romance that can cause you to escape this crass and cruel world.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    Historical Romance is one of my favorite genre. I also love dogs and to have 5 at one time shows a passion that can’t be beat!! I am so glad that writing is one also because you have a God given talent that should always be shared with the world. Thanks for the great giveaway and Merry Christmas!
