(Side note: during a particular scene where these friends/brothers storm into raw action, I imagined what it would've been like if the fiery Henrietta, the heroine from the prequel novella, could have just happened to burst into the fray with her pistol. Whew!)
Much of the romance in this book has a heavy fairytale quality. I enjoyed some of Marcus and Josie's earlier exchanges, but, admittedly, I can't say I came to like Josie overall, and there didn't seem to be a good balance of strength(s) between the two of them. Also, their individual ponderings about each other would feel redundant at times or would weigh on the story without necessarily moving the plot forward. I think I might've enjoyed this particular tale more as a somewhat shorter, tighter read.
Nevertheless, the suspense and danger that began to unfold in the preceding book deepens here. Plus, the admirable showing of Marcus's friend Phillip in this novel would make moving on in the series all the more interesting.
I received a complimentary copy of this book, for which I've given an honest review.
A tale of heroes, villains, and virginal maids, the gripping tale of Marcus Remington and the mysterious woman he rescues from a carriage crash in a thunderstorm goes from trickles of suspense down the spine to actual nail-biting, and knee-knocking as we follow the trail of the romance.
Obstacles litter their paths, but will goodness triumph? You may guess, but don’t be so sure, because the enemy is diabolical and persistent. Light moments to appear, just enough to give the reader a breather before the next riveting blow befalls the star-crossed lovers.
When you read a book by Susan Baganz, you certainly know it’s a romance as the story is liberally dolloped with gorgeous love scenes that make you crave your own hero. Enjoy! I received an advance copy for review.
The formula is most successful when all the ingredients are top quality and the author obviously loves the characters and the message. "The Virtuous Viscount" is filled with titled men (Lord Remington and his charismatic friends), a very lovely woman (Josie) and conflict (danger, deeds of derring-do and hiccups in the path to true love). Minor characters have enough personality to be memorable and the dialogue sparkles.
Ms. Baganz is unabashed in her advocacy of virtue but it isn’t a bland moral code that she espouses. Rather, the characters struggle with temptations and self-doubt and the fallout from poor decisions. But they never waver from believing that the virtues of purity, honesty, love, generosity and courage are worth striving for. This is an enjoyable book. proving a good formula filled with good, healthy ingredients makes for a satisfying read.
