The Taming of The Viscountess by Karen Sommers
This is a unique and intriguing story. Marie was in love with her neighbor and was devastated when during her debut she found that he was with someone else. Heartbroken and humiliated, she refused to attend any more events, and turned away all suitors, until they stopped coming. Her father takes things into his own hands and betroths her to Viscount Berkeley. She was excited about marrying, thinking it was her only chance to marry and have a family. They don't meet until they get to the alter. He's shocked to see that she's young and beautiful, she's shocked that he's much older than she thought. When they arrive at his home, she's flabbergasted, it's so small and so unimpressive. And there aren't any servants. Each believes the marriage is doomed, but they do have their moments of interest. It's an enjoyable, intriguing, romantic and suspenseful story that I loved.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
