About The Viscount’s Vow
A man changed by war. The woman who loves him. And a secret that could tear them apart.
A “sweet story of redemption, forgiveness, and love.” —T. Westoff
Edward Rutledge, the newly minted Viscount Carlisle, has come back from war a changed man. The echo of the battlefield and the death of his best friend Marcus haunt him to the point that he decides to break his betrothal to Charlotte—the only woman he’s ever loved.
When he’s summoned home to Hartwell Manor, he comes face-to-face with her. Slowly, her strength and love make him see that he might be able to reclaim what he thought was lost. But when word reaches him that Marcus might not have died in Spain and yet lives, Edward will do anything to bring his friend home. As the mystery deepens, however, Edward is drawn into an intrigue that forces him to confront the demons that have plagued him since he returned to England. Will he have to sacrifice everything he’s built with Charlotte in order to keep her safe?
Last year I got to read The Marquess Meets His Match by Julie Coulter Bellon. I loved that book! So when she had this book come out this year, of course I was going to read it!
I loved everything about this book! The author did a really great job with the setting and characters. And the plot keeps the reader interested from the very beginning.
This one features Edward. I was really glad that the reader got to see things through his eyes. Edward is a complicated character. He’s got PTSD from being in the war. And he doesn’t want to put that on to Charlotte, the young lady he’s loved and been betrothed to since before the war.
Charlotte is uncertain what’s wrong. She only knows that Edward has told her brother to break their betrothal. And that Edward has been hiding from her. I loved her courage. She knew that Edward didn’t want to marry her anymore, but she went after him to change his mind anyway.
Charlotte and Edward’s story kept me wanting to read more and more! I couldn’t stop until I knew what would happen to them. It’s a great read for anyone interested in historical romance.
I was sent an e-copy of The Viscount’s Vow as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
