intriguing the viscount his majesty s hounds 2 Reviews
Intriguing The Viscount is set in London in the period shortly following Waterloo and Napoleon’s final exile to St. Helena. While it is an excellent Regency-era romance, it also delves into some of the social issues of the day, including the grinding poverty experienced by the lower classes and the growing discontent among the middle class, in particular their distaste for the excesses and entitlement of the Ton. Arietta Richmond skilfully weaves all these themes together by introducing Charlton, an aristocratic second son who fought in the wars and came home to inherit an Earldom on the death of his depraved older brother. Left to clean up his brother’s messes, Charlton still has work of his own to do for his country when he is recruited to keep an eye on a displaced French aristocrat suspected of plotting sedition.Lady Odette, the heroine of Intriguing The Viscount, is the half-English daughter of the aristocrat in question. Exiled to England when very young, she has lived happily with her mother’s family ever since. Trying to be a dutiful daughter to the father she hardly knows, she is a very sweet and charming character, saved from being cookie-cutter by her intelligence and love of reading. I absolutely loved the scene where she quoted the beginning of The Iliad to Charlton; it was obvious that was the point at which he quite lost his heart to her. The flow of the story was at times a little choppy, but overall this was a very good read. Though it is the second in a series, it reads very nicely as a standalone and all the major plot points are nicely wrapped up by the end of the story.Four stars.Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through Reader’s Favorite.
Wicked Brother, Spy Rings and Regency Balls.Charlton has returned from the war and succeeded to his brother's position. Everyday that goes past he uncovers more of his brother's disreputable dealings and is sickened by them. The Ton shuns him and his mother but Charlton, who has a sister to present to society, is determined to change their view; even more so when he meets the lovely Lady Odette Marmont. The last thing he wants is his old Commanding Officer, Baron Setford, to embroil him in spying on a French spy on behalf of the British Crown. The situation is further complicated by the fact that the suspected spy is Odette's father. An enjoyable story with well rounded characters, recommended read.I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
A great novelThe hounds are a 6 man team of specialists that work for the crown. Lord Charlton Edgeworth, Viscount Pendholm is one and has returned after 4 years fighting in France. At a ball h meets Lady Odette Marmont.This lovely story has a bit of intrigue, some action and lots of heart. I am missing a lot of sleep because of this author. Once I start one of her books, I have to know what is going to happen next. Her stories as easy to read and I so enjoy her work. I believe you will enjoy this one also.
This heartwarming, sweet Regency romance will warm your heart. This fast paced short read will have you wondering what will come next! I never expected the ending and I'm sure you won't either! This author has a way with words and will keep you on your toes through the whole book! I cannot wait to see what comes next from His Majesty's Hounds Series! Loved the complete mayhem!!!
Interesting I love Regency Romances. Intriguing The Viscount was fun, fast and romantic. I was so into this book that I found it hard to put down.
Such a fabulous book. Charlton was a wonderful hero. He returned from the war and immediately had to begin cleaning up the mess his now deceased brother had made of things. He was a true gentleman, inside and out. His nightly conversations with his mother really endeared me to him.Odette was such a sweet, trusting and innocent heroine. She was smart, beautiful and not as interested in marriage as those around her.Her trust in others almost ruins a budding relationship.The primary characters in this book are marvelous, but so are the secondary characters. There are so many more stories to be told. While it is not necessary to read the first book in this series to enjoy this one, it helps introduce many of the characters.I highly recommend this book as well as all others by Arietta Richmond, who is one of my favorite authors.
I received a pre release copy of this book - this is my honest review.I really enjoyed this book. It started off a little slow for me, but that's probably because I haven't yet read the first one in the series. I love Odette's innocence, and her blind faith in her father, though unwarranted. Charleton was my favorite character, such an honorable man. Having to come home from war only to have to clean up his horrible brother's messes, always being there for his mother, his sister, and ready to step in to help someone in need.This is the first book I've read by Arietta Richmond, but it certainly won't be the last! I am a huge fan of historical fiction, and will definitely be catching up on her work so I can be ready for her next book!!
Charlton, back from the war, is faced with sorting out the affairs of his older brother, Michael, who died while Charlton was in Europe. Trying to overcome the stigma of his brother's vile actions, he helps his mother introduce his younger sister, Harriet, to society. At one event he catches sight of Odette, and is immediately drawn to her, but realises that her father is the French spy whom he was warned about in Europe, during the war. He finds himself in a quandry, especially as his employer, a spy-master himself, has asked Charlton to infiltrate the French spy ring. How Charlton and Odette solve their problems makes a real page-turner of a story.(I voluntarily reviewed this free Advanced reader copy.)
I like very much this book, the characters and the plot.It is a sweet story, with some trysts and a happy end.A story what will entrainment you until the last pages and I recommend this book to whom would like to spend a nice evening within in a new world.I received a pre release copy of this book and this is my honest review.
I did love reading this though and was completely happy with the entire story. I was sweet and quite a wonderful story. I've loved reading regency romances for a while and there were several elements that I have always liked seeing in them and then there were new elements that I hadn't thought of being added in. I can't wait to start reading the next book in the series when its available.
