Kurzbeschreibung

Miss Claire Belmont’s life is thrown into turmoil when she finds out her brother left something behind in France before he died. Going against her family’s wishes, she is determined to uncover the secret of what it is, and is forced to turn to the one man she vowed to avoid at all costs for help. Claire has always feared that if anyone can disrupt her well-ordered life and see the vulnerable woman behind the polite facade, it will be Viscount Kelkirk and now they are thrown together, she realizes her fears were justified.

Nachdem mir schon der erste Teil mit Daniels und Evas Story (Duchess by Chance) sehr gut gefallen hatte, konnte ich es mir nicht verkneifen, sofort beim 2. Teil mit Simons und Claires Story, zuzuschlagen. Die Story ist ungewöhnlich für die damalige Zeit und in diesem Genre, aber genau dies macht sie so interessant. Leider steht in diesem Teil die Haupthandlung sehr stark im Mittelpunkt, sodass ich die kleinen kurzen und lustigen Intermezzos mit der Gesellschaft wie in Teil 1 echt vermisst habe. Dennoch eine sehr gelungene Fortsetzung und ich werde bestimmt noch mehr von der Autorin lesen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This is clearly a novel that celebrates the hero. 22. April 2014
Von Tin @ Love Saves the World - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Disclosure: I received this review copy from the author. Thank you, Wendy Vella, for the opportunity! Yes, this is an honest review.

* * *

Claire is not an easy heroine to love: she's an odd mix of earnest, passionate, loyal ... and ignorant. She's very driven, as well -- and it's the volatile mix of personality and circumstances that have led her into trouble as she chases after her dead brother's final legacy.

When her brother, her closest friend, died from his war injuries, I think it turned Claire's perfect world upside down -- and she lost the lodestone that centered her. Now, she suffers from insomnia and has very strained relations with her mother and older brother -- I felt bad for Claire's family. I don't think they've had the chance to sit down and share their grief with each other, and that silence has become an impenetrable wall that neither side can see through.

Perhaps this is the best thing to take away from Vella's Rescued by a Viscount: how death affects the living. Claire's a society miss and she's meant to be happy and carefree. She still presents that facade to society, but Simon, Viscount Kelkirk can see that something isn't right with Claire ... and hasn't been in a while.

Which makes Claire a heroine I could sympathise with. She does a good job pretending that everything is fine -- and she keeps her private grief separate from her public life, but, as the days pass, it is inevitable that the two sides of her would meld together. That she wasn't sleeping well, that she was struggling to stay in control of her life and situation ... Claire has lost her way and struggling to find it again.

Viscount Kelkirk is there for Claire and he tries to help, but their relationship has always been adversarial -- how can he change that? How can he change the way they relate to each other? Claire has always been wary of Kelkirk, so she is a bit suspicious of his change of heart.

Clare has always kept her distance from Simon Kelkirk because there was something about him that unsettled her. He wasn't like other men; he didn't observe the correct distance when conversing or dancing with a woman, nor did he guard his tongue. In fact, he was the opposite of everything she strove to be, and she had never known how to handle him.
- loc 62

Kelkirk offers his assistance several times -- and this is the part of the story I didn't enjoy very much as this plot point repeats in the story: Claire makes a rash decision and gets into trouble and Kelkirk is there to save her. Claire always has an explanation for her foolhardiness, but she never seems to learn the lesson -- and keeps repeating the same mistake.

... she was an intelligent woman. If her wits did not help, then she had the money she had saved, plus the full purse she'd stolen from her brother to bribe people. Dear lord, she hoped Mathew didn't blame the staff for the missing money. Claire dismissed this thought; she would deal with that upon her return if it needed to be dealt with.

She would be a young lady traveling alone, as she dared not take her maid because she was a terrible gossip; she had told her she would be using Eva's for the duration of her visit at Stratton. The journey to Liverpool would take three days, possibly four, and this would create curiosity. But she would have to worry about that, too, as the journey progressed.
- loc 1338

* * *

...Claire suddenly realised that, should something go wrong, there would be no one to turn to. Her brother would not come to her aid, nor her friends, because they had no idea where she was. Suddenly, her flight from Simon did not seem such a wise idea, and the folly of her impulsive actions now weighed heavily on her shoulders.
- loc 2277

This is clearly a novel that celebrates the hero. From the first moment it he story, up to the last, Viscount Kelkirk was steady, calm and dependable as our heroine, Claire, rushed headlong into trouble. Simon is a very interesting hero -- and I could see that great care and thought was taken when his character was created. He's a powerful and popular peer -- but he also hides a secret sadness, and a very interesting hobby. Throughout the story, he never judges Claire or gives up on her -- despite his disappointment and frustration, he continues to do what his mind (and heart) compel him to do: protect Claire and keep her safe.

In Claire's defense, she really does have very good intentions, but she just doesn't have the experience or the time to think things through. I think the end of the story, which reveals her brother's secret, vindicates Claire's actions and decisions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen YOU WILL HAVE THAT WARM ALL OVER FEELING!! 8. August 2014
Von NavyWave62 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this book and it isn't my first by this author, and will not be the last. Do yourself a huge favor and sign up for her newsletter as to not miss any of her novels. The passion, is what struck me first, whether it being that they are arguing or making love. It is everything you want/need in a romance story - lovemaking that will curl your toes! It is just descriptive enough that you will feel warm and fuzzy!! Not the erotic type lovemaking some author's write, but one full of love and passion. The sparing our H/h do is an absolute delight, endeared me to them more - feisty is a good word to describe them when they are together. All the character's are written with much depth too. I will not go into the story, as it has been explained, but just know this is a wonderful romance that will make you want to read more by this author. I have not read the stories in order, and didn't feel lost when character's from previous novels are involved. (ljb)

4.0 von 5 Sternen 4.5 stars 19. September 2014
Von amtmcm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Simon is a wonderful hero. Affectionate, teasing, sincere and protective. His secret hobby is gardening, but he's no sissy, which he proves during a brawl at an inn. He feels drawn to Claire, despite her shrewish tongue, and as they travel together to retrieve the precious keepsake left behind by her deceased brother, they come to care for each other deeply. A lovely, charming story that I enjoyed reading. I probably wouldn't read it again, but there wasn't anything I didn't like, so rating 4.5 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Delightful to read 4. August 2014
Von Richard Hartono - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Quite a charming book, cleverly written - some parts of it would give you something better than a chuckle. The plot are easy to follow, yet keeps you at an arms length, makes it interesting even more so. The romance bit was sold many times over by other novelists, yet this one got its moments - some are delightfully described and refreshing. Will probably get another book by Vella, and hopefully it can hold its candle against this one.
