    Favorite author does not dissapoint!

    Giles and Maggie meet at a political rally, each on opposing sides, but each finds a very strong attraction to the other. Giles seeks her out to see if the rumors are true and that she is interested in his brother, whom he dispises. Giles is the reluctant heir to an earldom. He wants nothing to do with it since his father threw him and his mother out when he was just a boy. His political point of view stems from this mistreatment and now he is very much opposed to land owners having all the say in the government. Maggie is on the opposite party but she is a very smart woman. She knows that allies can be found in the oddest places. Giles rescues her from a rowdy crowd. Hero sits on Giles shoulders very well I think. This story is the first in a new series by Julia Justiss, one of my favorite authors! Her style of writing is very pleasing and flows beautifully. Descriptions are not too long, but allow for your own interpretation, I really appreciate that! *I received a courtesy copy of this title*

    Dazzling writing!

    While campaigning for her cousin’s elections, Lady Margaret Roberts is caught in the middle of a brouhaha and rescued by a handsome man with the most beautiful blue eyes. Maggie has been a widow and never intends to fall in love again, however that does not preclude a dalliance of some sort, especially with someone like the man with the unforgettable eyes. Giles Hadley detests his title of Viscount of Lyndlington; his family’s history is quite complicated and his relationship with his half-brother George Hadley is extremely tense. Giles feels immediately drawn to the lovely widow, but upon hearing that George might be asking for her hand, Giles is determined to find out more, particularly after Giles and Maggie have met several times, not so accidentally. Ms. Justiss takes her historical facts very seriously, and the Whig-Tory rivalry as well as the Reform form the background for the romance in FORBIDDEN NIGHTS WITH THE VISCOUNT. Although the political angle is particularly interesting, I felt there was a bit too much to my taste. Amidst the political intrigue, there is much tiptoeing around the eventual affair between Maggie and Giles while frissons of anticipation hover around them, and flirtatious banter abound. I was particularly impressed with how accurately the author describes that feeling of infatuation, of slowly falling under the sensual spell of another. Julia Justiss’ prose is sublime, as usual, the dialogues are witty, and the characters are realistic and well fleshed out. There are also a few quite sizzling sex scenes, which proves that sometimes politics and sex do make good bedfellows. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
