Review

"...highly entertaining tale of unconventional lovers, eccentric families, daring escapades and sizzling sensuality, not to mention a virginal hero." - RTBookReviews

Sizzling, addictive, and deeply romantic: Miranda Neville’s novels are a joy to read. (Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author)

From the Back Cover

She is determined to find a husband. . . now!

Lady Diana Fanshawe’s impeccable bloodline doesn’t stop society from laughing at the antics of her eccentric family. She knows a proper marriage is her one chance to make her way in the world—which is precisely why she will marry Lord Blakeney, though she’s certain she’ll never love him. But then she’s kissed by the brilliant and unconventional Sebastian, Viscount Iverley . . . and her well-laid plans tumble into disarray.

Sebastian wants absolutely nothing to do with love or marriage. But when he arrives at his hated cousin Blakeney’s house party, Sebastian is smitten by the tantalizing Diana. But Diana is “the marrying kind,” and Sebastian has no wish to risk his freedom—though the passion betweenthem is hard to resist. Should the lady follow her heart in an attempt to win Iverley’s, though it seems hardened against her—or should she sacrifice her love for respectability?

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Miranda Neville writes fun, sexy historical romance. In her latest book, the heroine is a widow. Diana Fanshawe married for money and position once, and now she has the match of her dreams in sight: Lord Blakeney, whom she has admired and hoped to marry since girlhood. While angling for Blakeney, however, she meets Sebastian Iverley, his bookish, socially awkward cousin. Her attraction to Sebastian doesn't fit with her marriage plans; when she bets Blakeney that she can entrap Sebastian into a kiss, she gets much more than she intended.

Sebastian is a wonderful hero; he is unaware and inexperienced in a number of ways, not just sexually. He had a strange upbringing, without much affection, which means that he isn't well equipped to handle the emotions that he feels because of Diana. Following the story of these two characters as they learn what real love is a wonderful ride -- their relationship IS the story, no spies or plotting villains necessary.

Secondary characters are always treats in Neville's books. She creates really interesting and unique people for her canvas -- Diana's family, in particular is a wonderful collection of lovable eccentrics. And they are smart people, as are Diana and Sebastian. I can never get enough of intelligent characters in my fiction, and this book is full of them. Very highly recommended.

The heroine in Miranda Neville's latest novel, The Dangerous Viscount, is not that likeable at first but fortunately she grows on you because she grows up and puts away some childish behavior and childish fantasies. The hero in this novel is divine, exceptional and really memorable and he is the reason this story works.

Diana Fanshawe is ecstatic to be invited to Lord Blakeney's home, she's been infatuated with him for years and since she is now a widow she has set her sights upon him. Also in attendance is Blakeney's cousin, Sebastian Iverly. Oh, Sebastian, he is painfully awkward around women, controlled, uncertain and scholarly. He finds women a nuisance, he's barely been around them throughout his entire twenty-six years, but he is enchanted by Diana.

Diana is not exactly welcoming to Sebastian, she's cordial but she does something so mean spirited that I almost hated her; she uses this poor man's infatuation against him in a teasing bet with Lord Blakely. She is not very kind in this portion of the book.

After the house party, Sebastian turns over a new leaf, hoping to gain Diana's notice. Sebastian really does metamorphis into a somewhat debonair chap, he gets a new wardrobe, learns the art of social niceties and small talk and Diana cannot help but mark the changes. Sebastian is a planner and he plans his conquest with skill, and a little help from friends, he plans his campaign like it is the Norman invasion. Sebstian though still keeps part of his scholarly personality, it doesn't all disappear, he still loves old books and he still is at odds with his cousin Lord Blakeney.

For the first half of this novel Diana is shallow and a tad vain and still stuck in the past.

**Background and Some Slight Spoilers****
Diana Fanshawe is a beautiful young, wealthy, widow who has a hankering for the Marquis of Blakeney, long time neighbor and rake of the first order. She is at a house party at Blakeney's when she first meets Sebastian Iverley, cousin to Blakeney and as different from Blakeney as day is to night. Sebastian and Blakeney have a past that goes back to their young years when Sebastian would visit Blakeney and his sisters and they would make fun of the skinny, bespectacled Sebastian - in fact their nickname for Sebastian was Owlverley and Blakeney still calls him by that name behind his back.

Blakeney is a very handsome titled young man and women want him - a lot of women. Sebastian is dowdy, wears very ill fitted clothing and cares nothing for society - not even the company of women. His primary interest is in obtaining very rare books whereas Blakeney's main interests appear to be all that is frivolous and irresponsible.

Blakeney does want the lovely and wealthy Diana, however, so that he won't have to rely on his father for money. Sebastian has never been around females very much and hasn't had any real interest in women to this point. He is that most rare of men in his class - yes, he is a virgin. But, he finds himself very unexpectedly susceptible to the lovely Diana and her charms. In fact he is so taken with her, he hardly knows what to do with himself.

Diana, in good fun, makes the mistake of participating in a wager that she will be able to get Sebastian to kiss her - this wager being between herself, Blakeney and a couple of other guests. Uh oh! Diana wins the wager but Sebastian and the kiss soon have Diana thinking long and hard about Sebastian in ways she would not have considered.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are individuals rather than romance novel stereotypes. Sebastian is socially awkward but practical in a childlike way, taking a while to grow into an adult relationship. Diana is a confident, independent woman, yet with a touching vulnerability at times. I love the way that she gradually realises her feelings for Sebastian.

Neville's writing is wonderfully fluent and entertaining. Historical details are neatly inserted into the story without the author feeling the need to labour the point; she trusts her readers' intelligence.

What prevents this being a five star read is the fact that I wanted a bit more emotion from Diana and Sebastian in the end. They marry on bad terms, having each betrayed the other, and the path to happy ever after doesn't run smoothly but I was anticipating declarations of love and expressions of tenderness that never eventuated.

This is still a beautifully crafted romance that kept me well entertained.
