VANQUISHING THE VISCOUNT was a delight to read. It’s so much fun watching Emma and Tidworth banter and test each other’s boundaries as they get to know one another. They both have a lot of preconceived notions about each other and make some assumptions without getting all the information. I feel like their having to work through these roadblocks and learn how to open up to each other kept things interesting and made this such a sweet and intimate romance. Getting to the nitty-gritty of both of their insecurities and fears and seeing them learn how to work through them as a couple made me feel like I really got to know who these characters were, not just on a superficial level.
I have such a crush on Tidworth. When he first encounters Emma, much like her I expected him to be very confident and lordly – a gorgeous, rich man who knows he’s wanted and thinks he can get away with anything. But in actuality, Tidworth shows himself to be an incredibly kind, forgiving, charitable person who is mostly focused on trying to help those less fortunate. He’s like a literal angel. I don’t know how he manages to be so sweet and wonderful without seeming like a goodie two-shoes, but he does! Oh, wait…yes, I do. He’s also sexy and passionate and puts Emma’s needs above everything else. A loving man who is respectful and cares about consent in a time and society where no one else seems to care about a woman’s mind and needs – hot damn! Although Tidworth could easily have been just another sexy-and-he-knows-it entitled lord hero I think I love him all the more for his sweet, understated nature. He’s not the kind of guy who needs to be in control to assert his masculinity. And there’s something so incredibly sexy about that which I totally didn’t expect.
If you love historical romances and are looking for characters who have much more depth than you would expect, VANQUISHING THE VISCOUNT is not to be missed. This sweet, funny and sexy read will have you throwing aside your preconceived notions and falling completely in love.

Because of James's fall he missed his chance to ask the woman he loves to marry him. Someone else beat him to it and now he's heartbroken. James blames Emma for his misery. He can make life tricky for her, because of everything he found out about her family, but she also fascinates him. What will win, the desire to get to know her better or plotting his revenge? He has the power to ruin Emma, but is he really that cruel or will he listen to his heart?
Vanquishing the Viscount is an entertaining romantic story. Emma is kindhearted and always wants to look after others. She is a fierce intelligent woman and can take care of herself. I admired her fabulous spirit. Her parents are in trouble and she tries to help them in any way she can. She's there for those who are in need. Because of her caring nature the woman of James's dreams says yes to another man's proposal. James is heartbroken and doesn't want to like Emma, he'd rather hate her, but that isn't as easy as he thinks. Sparks fly between them and she fascinates him more than he wants to admit, which makes the story fun and engaging and kept me interested from beginning to end.
Elizabeth Keysian's writing style has a lovely easy flow. I love the way she makes the time she writes about come to life. Her vivid description of her settings, her characters' appearances and the rules and intrigues of the ton are making her story a joy to read. I read Vanquishing the Viscount in one sitting, it's charming, sweet and captivating and I couldn't put it down. I really liked this wonderful book with its amazing sweet ending.
