A convenient arrangement between an unconventional Regency businesswoman and a debonair nobleman leads to something more in Michelle Styles’ delightful historical romance, His Unsuitable Viscountess!

 Miss Eleanor Blackwell will do anything to save her thriving sword-making factory from the nefarious clutches of her stepfather’s nephew. Eleanor has not dedicated her entire life to the business only for it to be snatched away by an odious man who doesn’t know the first thing about making swords! With the welfare of her employees and their families to think about, Eleanor quickly realizes that the only solution available to her is matrimony! Suitable bachelors in Durham County are thin on the ground, but when Eleanor learns that an acquaintance of hers, Sir Vivian Clarence, is looking for a way to clear his substantial debts, she wonders whether she has found a solution to her problem. However, Eleanor’s plans to wed Sir Vivian hit a major stumbling block when his formidable cousin, Benjamin Grayson, Viscount Whittonstall, uncovers the truth about her disreputable intentions…

Eleanor is absolutely stunned when Viscount Whittonstall puts himself forward as a candidate for her hand in marriage. Eleanor might have only been looking for a convenient husband, but how can their relationship have any hope of succeeding when they both come from such different worlds? A man like Viscount Whittonstall needs a woman who is poised, elegant and sophisticated – he certainly does need a woman who is more at home in a foundry than in a ballroom! But with no other option available to her, Eleanor has got no other choice but to accept his proposal.Benjamin knows that the last thing his feckless cousin needs is to saddle himself with a wife. Sir Vivian is a spineless and feeble hedonist with a penchant for getting into trouble and a predilection for getting himself into debt. Marriage is certainly not on the cards for him. However, Benjamin is not so eager to see the vivacious Miss Blackwell walk out of their lives. With his vast fortune, impeccable lineage and breathtaking good looks, Benjamin has been fighting off the advances of doe-eyed debutantes and lascivious society ladies for years. But Miss Blackwell is nothing like the women he usually comes across. She is fiercely intelligent, astonishingly clever, quick-witted – and the first woman in a long while to get under his skin! If she wants a husband, then Benjamin is more than willing to take up this position – providing that she understands that his heart is strictly off-limits!

Theirs was meant to be a marriage in name only – until a passionate kiss unleashes unforeseen emotions deep within them. Are Eleanor and Benjamin ready to face up to the truth about their feelings for one another? Or is their marriage destined to remain a cold and convenient arrangement?

Readers can always count on Michelle Styles to deliver a splendid historical romance that will keep them turning the pages late into the night and His Unsuitable Viscountess is certainly no exception. A captivating tale that sparkles with wonderful characters, searing emotion, witty dialogue and intimate sensuality, His Unsuitable Viscountess pits a strong and independent heroine against a gorgeous and honorable hero no woman will be able to resist!

A fantastic historical romance from one of my favorite writers, His Unsuitable Viscountess is another Michelle Styles book destined for your keeper shelf!
