The second book in Charis Michaels’ Bachelor Lords of London Series has a more somber tone than the first. And in this one, nobody is who they seem.
Bryson Courtland is quite happy when his father expires in a freak accident allowing him to become Viscount Rainsleigh.. He has been toiling for years to restore the family reputation. Now all he needs is a wife equally above reproach.
Lady Elisabeth looks the part and has the right family background. Only one tiny problem. Her life’s work has been running a charity that raises eyebrows. Oh, and she’s met Bryson before under horrible and horribly embarrassing circumstances.
Michaels has provided several surprising plot twists and wraps it all up in a heartwarming finale. She also lets us renew acquaintances with several characters from her earlier book.
I’m hoping the companion/chaperone gets her own book.
About THE VIRGIN AND THE VISCOUNT
In the next sparkling romance in debut author Charis Michael’s Bachelor Lords of London series, a proper viscount meets his match in a beguiling virgin who can’t help but break all the rules.
Lady Elisabeth Hamilton-Baythes has a painful secret. At the innocent age of fifteen, she was abducted by highwaymen and sold to a brothel. After two days, a young lord discovers her and enacts a brave rescue to get her out. Now she’s a grown woman, working to save other girls from the horror she saw that night and never forgetting the young man who rescued her.
Bryson Courtland, Viscount Rainsleigh has overcome an abusive boyhood, neglectful parents, and a bankrupt title to be one of the wealthiest noblemen in Britain. He works tirelessly to be upright and forthright and proper to a fault. Now he requires only one thing: A proper, forthright, proper wife.
When a charity event puts Lord Bryson and Lady Elisabeth face-to-face, Bryson has no memory of the wounded girl of long ago. All he can see is a perfect candidate to be his future wife. Elisabeth has never forgotten him, but she worries that the brave boy who saved her so long ago has become a rich man with an unfulfilled life.
As a whirlwind courtship reveals the truth, Bryson must accept that Elisabeth is actually a shadow from his dark past, while Elisabeth must show that love is the noblest virtue of all.
