I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Thoughts on...Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue by Stephanie Laurens

Strange to read a Regency Romance where so much of the book takes place away from the watchful eyes of the ton. And more telling, because of the series, away from the protection of the Cynster Men. Not for nothing that the Head of the Family's nickname is Devil.

It is very clearly stated on the cover "Three heroes, three rescues, three weddings." So we know there will be three stories (luckily for us, 3 novels). Because the stories involve Cynster females, there will be headstrong, beautiful women and a bit of danger. We also know there will be a happy ending.

I guess this trilogy has a "formula" but really, don't most romance books? The details of time period and the characters are what draw us in and Ms. Laurens has this firmly mastered. We're allowed to visit a well established series from a different point of view and this novel lets us visit Scotland with a stop at The Vale.

On the strength of the author and my familiarity of the series, I have already purchase book two, In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster and after reading half of book one, am eagerly waiting Jan 31 and the publication of book three, The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae.

So formula or not, Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue starts with a kidnapping, follows with a chase across borders, a rescue and an unlikely introduction to who could only be the Earl of Glencrae.

I haven't finished the book yet but will before heading to sleep....started it today and even though I know there will be a wedding, I must know how the book ends.

Now, where did I leave In Pursuit.....

Disclaimer: I purchased a copy of this book due to the fact that I love this author and have read so many of the other books in the series. Plus I wanted to support Avon Books' k.i.s.s and teal campaign. The opinions expressed in this post are mine and may differ from yours. Book information courtesy of .........

Product Description:

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Miss Heather Cynster . . . but not before she encounters kidnappers, danger, and a daring rescue at the hands of Viscount Breckenridge

Determined to hunt down her very own hero, one who will sweep her off her feet and into wedded bliss, and despairing of finding him in London’s staid ballrooms, Heather Cynster steps out of her safe world and boldly attends a racy soiree.

But her promising hunt is ruined by the supremely interfering Viscount Breckenridge, who whisks her out of scandal—and straight into danger, when a mysterious enemy seizes her, bundles her into a coach, and conveys her out of London.

Now it’s up to the notorious Breckenridge to prove himself the hero she’s been searching for all along . . .
