Emily Bryan's Vexing The Viscount
Daisy Drake is leading a double life! By day, she's Lucian Beaumont's unwanted assistant and by night, she masquerades as the masked courtesan, Blanche La Tour, a Frenchwoman who agreed to give Lucian lessons in sensual love!
There's only one problem. Daisy speaks fluent French and can read ancient Latin without moving her lips, but she doesn't know the first thing about the pleasures of the flesh!
Good thing she has the real Blanch La Tour's very explicit memoirs for guidance.
Lucian Beaumont, Viscount Rutland, longs to see his family's standing returned to its glory days, before his father lost their fortune. And he thinks he can manage it, if he can only discover the hiding place of an ancient Roman payroll.
Daisy never forgot her girlhood fascination with Lucian, even though his father has a score to settle with her uncle. Now that they're all grown up, she's determined to help the viscount find his Roman treasure.
Whether he wants her help or not!
I recently read an ARC of Vexing the Viscount and I loved it. Daisy Drake is a fabulous heroine. She is unconventional, bold and daring. She keeps Lucian Beaumont on his toes. This book has it all: romance, passion, adventure and danger. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hated to see it end.
