MY REVIEW of

To Tempt a Viscount

33026624

Entangled Nobility, Book 1

by Naomi Boom

Publisher’s Description:

Lady Laura Rosing knows two things: first, she will marry for love, and second, she detests rakes. When she meets Lord Gavin Farris, she understands immediately that he fails both her criteria, and worse yet, he is an absolute cad who refuses to leave her be.

Lord Farris has always appreciated women and cannot understand why Lady Laura is so resistant to his charms. While pretty, she is not his usual type, but something about her intrigues him. Much to his chagrin, he finds himself desperately in love with her, but he may be too late. His adamant refusal to marry just might have planted her firmly in the arms of another.

My Thoughts:

I had never read anything by this author before and found myself intrigued by the storyline. While a sensual factor is implied there is nothing more than a shared kiss with no real sexual interaction in this sweet, clean regency romance.

When Laura meets the infamous rake, Lord Farris at a house party she is immediately drawn to him., although he meets none of her criteria for a suitor. She has two firm rules, she will marry for love and no rakes.

Lord Farris never intends to marry but he finds himself drawn to this young lady who is most definitely not his usual type.

Will these two be able to get past these obstacles and find love together?

This is a well written traditional Regency Romance with just enough twists to keep it interesting.

Upon further research I found this to be the Author’s Debut Novel. Congratulations on a very good first book.

I gave it 3.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 1 of 5 flames. This sweet, clean Regency has no sexual content.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have voluntarily reviewed.

About The Author:

NaomiNaomi Boom is an author who never expected to love writing. Her inspiration struck when she was searching for the perfect historical romance novel to read. Nothing sounded appealing, so she decided to write her own. That one novel has morphed into a series, and hopefully many, many more.

She resides in her home state of South Dakota with her husband and toddler. Her dream is to someday find an acreage where she can raise chickens, and continue her writing.

A Pledge of Passion

Only a madman makes a promise in the heat of passion… 

2d21219d-0b6e-4454-9e42-b156d74a0ae4During a midnight tryst in a moonlit garden, Nicolas Needham fell in love–only to walk away. As a younger son with few connections, his pride demanded that he better his circumstances before paying his suit to Lady Mariah. When Nicolas is finally given the opportunity he needs to advance–by negotiating a contract of matrimony on the British Envoy’s behalf–he is shocked to learn that the intended bride is the same woman to whom he once pledged himself.

And only a fool believes him…. 

Lady Mariah Morehaven has lived a quiet, almost reclusive life in the country. While she accepts that marriage is her unavoidable destiny, as a baroness in her own right, and heir to one of the oldest and land-rich estates in England, she fears becoming the target of fortune hunters. Entrusting her cousin’s well-connected godmother to help her find a suitable match, Mariah is devastated to discover that the man sent to negotiate for her hand is the very same who broke her heart.

A Breach of Promise

When charm and persuasion fail… Only seduction remains…ed97535d-1b48-4a96-a31a-87b9903c9f0f

On the night of her betrothal, Lydia Trent receives just a taste of what awaits her in marriage with her fiancé…and then he leaves her wanting. Now, after waiting six years for her exceedingly reluctant bridegroom to honor his troth, Lydia is resolved to break it off.
When Marcus, Lord Russell, receives Lydia’s letter demanding a release from their marriage contract, he is at first stunned, but certain that he’ll have her eating out of his hand with his usual wit and charm. Although confident that he’ll repair the damage, he has no clue how determined the headstrong Lydia is to thwart his every effort to win her back.
Yet, Marcus discovers, in spite of her conviction to end the engagement, Lydia is more responsive to his touch than he ever imagined. He just needs to get her alone to unleash the promised passion he sees within his virgin fiancée. Armed with this knowledge, he will use any tool in his arsenal to exploit her weakness.
In short, he’ll just have to ruin her!

Digital Edition Currently $0.99 at Amazon

Publisher’s Description:
51Yq4TJOAxLEdward Banks, Lord Watson has known most of his life that one day Regina Harris was to be his bride–but somebody forgot to inform her…

An avid academic and aspiring scientist, Edward is pleased to find that he won’t have to bother with the nonsense involved in courting a young lady.

Young and naive, it doesn’t take much for her social-climbing father to convince Regina the gentleman she’s to marry has requested her hand out of love, but devastates her when she learns the truth.

Now, it’s up to a gentleman who’s more comfortable in a conservatory than a drawing room to prove to Regina that she’s more than just the proverbial sacrificial lamb that helped gain her family their foot in Society’s door and that he–if no other gentleman–is trustworthy. But he just might be the one doing the learning as he’ll be forced to acknowledge that sometimes the most combustible elements aren’t the ones you control, but sometimes the ones you don’t.

Publisher’s Description:

Will he secure his future by ruining hers, or will she ruin his plans by securing 51zXDllWvELhim?

A new twist on the old fortune hunter plot puts an impoverished earl in a position to gain his fortune only by ruining an innocent’s reputation without offering marriage. The innocent he’s selected, however, has no plans to settle for anything less than marriage and will go to almost any length to secure him.

With no other means for an income, the impoverished Andrew Black, Earl of Townson, makes an agreement that will put a definite end to his eight year poverty streak. But, in order to gain his fortune he must do only one simple thing: ruin an innocent young lady’s reputation enough to make her flee to America.

Brooke Banks isn’t interested in marriage, or so she thinks. She came to London to have a good time, and that’s exactly what she’s doing. Widely known for her tendency to flout the rules, she suspects nothing when a handsome stranger appears on her doorstep.

Thirteen days, a handful of kisses and one scandalous situation later, Andrew and Brooke will have to choose to stick to their original plans, or decide if a life together is worth the risk.

***This is a full-length novel, approx. 100,000 words.***
