    3. I m a sucker for all romance but I have an especially soft spot for those stories where the hero is adamant he doesn t want the woman being forced on him but finds himself tempted beyond his limits as she slowly works her way into his heart I love the uncertainty, the struggle as passions ignite to the point where it seems almost impossible to deny One look at the books description told me I d found such a story and so with an eager smile I began to read and I have to say, I wasn t disappointedE [...]

    5. I ve been on a historical fiction spree as of late Actually, ever since I ve read THE MASTER AND THE MUSES, I ve been salivating for books to read of that nature So when I discovered THE SPURNED VISCOUNTESS, a historical fiction with paranormal elements, I was than excited to dive straight into this tale.Before I begin, it is important to note that the paranormal aspects do not play a huge role in this tale I was warned of this before I read the novel, so I didn t have any expectations about t [...]

    7. This book started off a little roughly as it irritated me in a few spots where Munro would use the same turn of phrase several times within a few pages I got the point the first time and did not need to hear that over and over I also thought the story was a little silly and yet something about it caught my attention and kept me reading.The CharactersRosalind had this very cool power of being able to touch people and see their thoughts but of course during this time period that made people suspic [...]

    11. This is a dark historical that has both mystery and mayhem It comes with a crumbling castle, ghostly goings on, a woman who could be a witch and a scarred, amnesiac hero with a hardened heart There might also be a crotchety old aunt and a hidden treasure Yeah, it pretty much has all the hallmarks of AWESOME with a side of drafty hallways.I really liked that the main characters didn t fall madly in love with one another at first sight Lucien is mourning his recently murdered wife while trying to [...]

    13.

    14. This was a great book I ve had it for a long time and am now wondering why I waited so long to read it.The story was compelling, mysterious, fast and action packed The characters were strong and I liked to read about them I had the mystery figured out about midway through the book but I had to wait until almost the very end for verification which was really cool.I loved Lucien and I related to him on a level that some people may not in that he had a scar on his face that made people want to run [...]

    15. So I decided to try my hand at romance again This time I was a little daring though, haha Rosalind is a character that you can connect with easily because you know just as much as she does about her new life It was nice to learn things with her verses having the blanks filled in by back stories and flashbacks shared between characters Lucien is one of those characters that you kind of love to hate right at the very beginning love than hate I would say because he s so distant and mean to Rosali [...]

    16. I read this book right smack dab in the middle of two very heavy and depressing books that I didn t really love, so The Spurned Viscountess was a very welcome relief Sometimes, do you just want to read a fun romance that may not be the most prolific book you ever read, but just gives you a break from your stressful life This is just the book The was some mystery and murder, but not emotionally heart wrenching The mystery element was cozy mystery that heart pumping thriller, which was good, sinc [...]

    17. A marriage of convenience not just for financial reasons, but because the bride is fearful of being accused of being a witch, all because she has the sight Her husband is honoring a long standing marriage agreement and just simply doesn t want her But she insists, seeing this marriage as a simple matter of survival Good story that is well told and gives insight into the prejudices that plagued persons with any form of ESP in the 18th and 19th centuries.

    18. I ve read Ms Munro s contemp novels and enjoyed them, but in all honesty, I think it was the mystery in this that kept it going for me It was ok, but wouldn t read another historical from this author.

    19. Classic gothic romance, with attempts made on the heroes life, attempts made on the heroines life, servants murdered, kidnapping, smugglers, accusations of witchcraft, you name it All in all, an enjoyable read, Ms Munro made it work.

    20. A fun gothic regency A mystery, a few murders, smuggling, a bit of romance and talk of treasure what could you ask for in a book.

    21. Fluffy Gothic romance I ate it up Sweet and sexy without being pornographic, which is hard to find in romances these days.
