I consider myself to be a connoisseur of literature. My love of reading has allowed me to discover a wide range of talented authors in an even larger range of genres. By choice, I enjoy the romance genre, particularly historical. From my first Judith McNaught novel, I was hooked. That message of love overcoming tragedies, social standing and even healing and building bonds is one that I have always loved. To Tempt a Viscount is a contemporary romance with a historical format. Ms. Boom lends her voice to the majestic regency era while giving her lovebirds a more modern field and it works. Laura is my kind of heroine. She's knows what she wants, speaks her mind and stays true to herself. Farris is a playboy through and through. He shields his heart by playing the part of a rogue. These characters highlight the best in each other and give the story an airy feel. New author, fabulous romance.
