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?
In My Opinion
Vying for the Viscount has a little bit of everything I love in a book: witty dialogue and banter, a bit of intrigue, a touch of humor, memorable characters, and friendship before love in the romance.
Bianca and Hudson have an interesting first meeting but overcome it quickly enough. Through their agreement, Bianca wrestles with the decisions before her while Hudson navigates a new home, new acquaintances, and a new title.
Some of my favorite scenes in this book were the ones where Bianca, Hudson, and the stable manager are riding together because of the honest conversations they have during those times. And I am thrilled to see book two in this series features that stable manager because he added a lot to this story.
Fans of Kristi Ann Hunter will enjoy the cameos of some favorite characters, but this book is truly about finding your place and falling in love. I loved every second of it.
