Review: Return of the Viscount

ReturnViscount“Return of the Viscount” by Gayle Callen (historical, Avon, August 2012, $7.99, 384pp)

 

Nicole gives this book a rating of 2 stars

 

Summary:
Her marriage of convenience seems far too convenient . . .

 

Desperation drove Cecilia Mallory to seek a union with a stranger—one who would wed her sight unseen and grant her full access to her inheritance with no expectations whatsoever. She anticipated, perhaps, an older, undesirable, equally desperate husband—never the young, vibrant, and devastatingly attractive man who answered her call. What could such a man really be after?
