MY REVIEW of
To Tempt a Viscount
Entangled Nobility, Book 1
by Naomi Boom
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.
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:
Naomi 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.

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.

Will he secure his future by ruining hers, or will she ruin his plans by securing him?
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.***
