Hope Stuckeley has lusted after the handsome and charismatic Michael Ashmore, the Viscount Lichfield, for ages - never mind that she's never actually spoken to him. When the two join forces to investigate a London stock market scandal, pretending he is courting her gives her the chance to prove she's more than the bookworm he takes her for.

After years of service as a soldier and newly titled as a viscount, actual marriage and settling down are the last things on confirmed bachelor Michael's mind. But when their investigation puts the delectable Hope in danger, discovering the truth about the scandal could jeopardize the future he didn't know he wanted.

My Rating: 4 Roses

An enjoyable historical romance, Tempting Her Reluctant Viscount was a lovely read. It had sweet romance, I surprising betrayal, and I quite liked it.

Hope was a lovely heroine. She was a proper, dutiful lady at first, but she didn't want to be that lady anymore. Over the course of the book, she proved that she was clever and stronger than she thought herself to be. I thought she was great.

Michael was also wonderful. I thought it was adorable how, despite being generally well spoken, he found himself floundering for words whenever Hope was around. He was sweet and as clever as Hope was. I thought he was a perfect hero.

The romance was sweet. It was slightly frustrating how long it took Hope and Michael to actually settle on having a relationship, but I still thought they were great together. They were both clever and definitely each other's match.

The plot was well paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. It was surprising who one of the culprits of the stock market scandal turned out to be and how it led to a huge betrayal. I enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Tempting Her Reluctant Viscount was an enjoyable historical romance. It was sweet and I ended up liking it. Romance lovers, this is a book you might want to check out.
