Pursued by the Viscount by Carole Mortimer
Series: Regency Unlaced #4
Published by Self Published Genres: Historical
Lady Rachel Shaw’s awful marriage was finally over upon the death of her husband. Believing that she may have finally found her life to be beginning, Rachel reveals things to an intimate via the written word…letters. However, Rachel soon discovers that your deepest most intimate secrets and desires should never be put to paper. She now has to scramble to jump fences that her cruel blackmailer has placed before her, or risk her and her child’s future in the ton.
Amateur sleuth, Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon, doesn’t take on foolish endeavors, but he can see that Rachel is a woman that has suffered more than anyone could dare imagine. Seeing beyond the face she presents to the ton, Lucien agrees to help her regain her letters, but he never thought he’d loose his heart to the young widow in the bargain.
Pursued by the Viscount is a short, steamy hot read with a dash of curiosity thrown in to break up the scenes between Lucien and Rachel. Pursued by the Viscount was a quick read, but it offered a little more depth in character development and fears as both Lucien and Rachel worked to find their joint path.
