Happy Tuesday, friends!
I’m bringing you another book review and keeping in the historical fiction genre. This time I’m talking about Kristi Ann Hunter’s Vying for the Viscount.
Have you added it to your TBR pile?
About the Book
For Hudson, the newly titled Viscount Stildon, moving to England from India where he was born and raised was already an arduous enough endeavor. When he learns the fate of the racing empire he inherited along with his title depends upon him getting in the good graces of another stable owner, he’s even more at a loss.
The stable at the neighboring estate has been Miss Bianca Snowley’s refuge for years, and when a strange man appears to be stealing the horses, she jumps to their protection without a second thought. Upon learning Hudson is actually the new owner, she can’t help but be intrigued by the area’s newest eligible bachelor.
Any thought of romance is quickly set aside, however, when Hudson proposes they work together to secure suitable spouses for each other. As their friendship grows, Hudson and Bianca begin to reconsider what they truly want in life. But will societal expectations and the weight of their responsibilities keep them from pursuing their true desires?
Kristi Ann Hunter is back and bringing historical romance readers a new series! Vying for the Viscount is the first book in the Hearts on the Heath series. We’re introduced to the new Viscount Stildon, aka Hudson, who was born and raised in India with an expectation of stepping into the titled position back in England.
I loved that Hudson was out of sorts and had to bumble his way through the tons expectations. It also made for a clever way to enter an agreement with his neighbor Miss Bianca Snowley.
What I liked the most about this book was seeing old friends pop in and a peek at the hero of book 2 who I have been waiting FOREVER to get his story. Okay, maybe not forever but in book years, it feels that way.
Vying is written in Ms. Hunter’s signature style and sure to delight her fans and gain her new ones.
