    The viscount and the virgin.

    This story starts off gently in a regency manner. The heroine is desperate to preserve her hard won lifestyle but succumbs, as we expect to the hero. And then the plot becomes really interesting as the hero's life slowly spirals out of control. Yes it's melodramatic. Yes I shed tears, but I loved the truths in this story. Thanks Charis. I'm looking forward to more of your tales.

    Lighthearted and unexpected

    I have been in a slump with historical romances lately, but this book was the perfect way to get back in the groove. With a title like THE VIRGIN AND THE VISCOUNT, you would expect business as usual, but that's very far from true. Everything about this book was unexpected, in a really good way. Fifteen years ago, Lady Elisabeth Hamilton-Baythes found herself in the worst situation ever. Set upon by highway men, her parents were killed and she was sold into a brothel, only to be rescued by her potential client. Now she finds herself the object of the affections of the man who rescued her so long ago - Bryson Courtland, Viscount Rainsleigh. But how will he feel when he discovers their shared past? Bryson Courtland grew up with parents who were more interested in the pursuit of unsavory pleasure, each more debauched than the previous, than caring for their sons, the title and all who depended on it and as the target of many of his father's jokes, he was determined to restore respect to the title and family name and choose to live a rigid and very controlled life, focused on growing his business. Now that the title is his, he has wasted no time repairing what was destroyed, but the final step to respectability is marrying the appropriate bride and Elisabeth fits all his criteria for the appropriate bride, but will the truth of her activities deter him from pursuing her? What do a man who hungers for society's acceptance and woman who bucks society's idea of a woman's interests have in common? This was a really engaging book and I really enjoyed it. It was in parts lighthearted, with fun banter between Elisabeth and Bryson as he sought to win her hand and in others very emotional and tear-jerking. Ms. Michaels writes a very strong and independent character in Elisabeth, a woman who has made it her life's work to save girls in situations similar to what she found herself, pretty much forging her own path without a care for her reputation in a society where reputation was everything. Bryson was a very complex character and every new revelation about his past added to his complexity, but readers may find him a harder character to like, even while enjoying the journey he takes and the growth he attains. My favorite thing about this book is that the author kept the spirit of the regency era even as she gave the characters and the story a modern feel. I will recommend this book to both lovers of historical romance and people testing the waters for the first time and I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye out for more from this author.
