If the Viscount Falls is the second book I've read by Sabrina Jeffries and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Dom was strong and somewhat set in his ways, but Jane was the perfect person to call him out when he needed to be. Both Dom and Jane had insecurities that made them seem real. The issues they faced were real for the times and while Jane disagreed with Dom forcing her to jilt him, Dom's heart was in the right place. I really enjoyed the chemistry and seeing how their love survived 12 years of being apart. I give this book 4 1/2 stars along with a strong recommendation to read.
From New York Times
bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries, the deliciously sexy fourth book
in the “Duke’s Men” Regency romance series—the first of which was called
“a totally engaging, adventurous love story” (RT Book Reviews, Top Pick).
heir presumptive to the Viscount Rathmoor, Dominick Manton once had his
heart’s desire within reach—a bright future as a barrister and
engagement to Jane Vernon, a wealthy baron’s daughter. Then a shattering
betrayal by his vindictive brother George snatched away Dom’s
inheritance and his hopes of offering Jane a secure future.
Brokenhearted, and attempting to end their engagement without destroying
Jane’s reputation, Dom staged a betrayal of his own to convince her
that he’s not the husband-to-be that she thought.
Now George is
gone and the viscountcy restored to Dom, since his brother’s widow,
Nancy—Jane’s cousin and closest confidant—never bore an heir. But when
Nancy goes missing, a panicked Jane calls on her former fiancé to track
down her cousin. Dom knows the mistakes of the past may be
unforgiveable—but now, entangled together in mystery and danger, will
they rekindle a passionate longing that was never lost to begin with?
