I loved this! I was really excited to hear that Collette Cameron’s second book The Viscount’s Vow was coming out, and I couldn’t wait to read it! And just like the first, once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down! There’s some mystery and a lot of action in this Regency Romance!

The Viscount’s Vow begins two years before the events in Highlander’s Hope, so it is very much a stand alone. In this story, we find out how Vangie and Ian meet. Vangie (Yvette’s cousin from HH) is the daughter of a Baronet, and she is part Romani Gypsy.

Ian has come to London to avenge his brother’s death, and he fully blames Evangelina Caruthers (Vangie) for being the cause for both his brother’s and his father’s deaths. He plans to expose her for the harlot that she is! But when the opportunity arrives, and he’s caught in a compromising position with Vangie, he can’t go through with it, and he must marry her instead.

Ian quickly learns Vangie is not the promiscuous tart he thinks she is, but a spirited, generous, forgiving woman, who just happens to be extremely good at throwing a dagger! Soon he begins falling in love with her. They have more than a few obstacles to overcome, and just when things are looking up for them, something happens to make Vangie think Ian has betrayed her. She runs off with her gypsy family, and Ian must prove himself trustworthy again. 

I like Vangie’s backbone - her willingness to stand up for herself! First, she refuses to marry Ian. Then she is willing to kill for him! At the same time, she's a little naive. In London, she had no idea of the reputation she had as a trollop. 

With highwaymen, gypsies and an evil-stepmother -- heartache, betrayal and smoldering romance, The Viscount’s Vow is fast paced and action packed all the way to the end!

    1. Hi Ceri! It was! I think you would like them both! I think I liked HH a little better, because of the Scottish characters. :)

    2. You'll like the next book then, Candy. The Earl's Enticement is about Adaira Ferguson, Ewan's sister. And she gets in all kinds of trouble.

    3. Ooh! That will be interesting! Isn't she the one that caused so much trouble in HH, too? And there will be hopefully more of those old Scottish laws and customs! I can't wait!!

  3. I was just about to tweet Collette and Candy to see what the title of book 3 was called (I couldn't remember) and now I know!

    This was a fun read, wasn't it Candy? If I had to choose, I think I also liked HH a little better because of the whole way they were married, but they're both great stories.

    1. Absolutely, The Viscount's Vow was a fun read! It's definitely a page-turner!

      I agree, in HH, I like the way they were married also! And all of Evan's burly brothers, with those lovely Scottish accents! mmm... :)

    2. I had to pop in and give you an update! I just finished The Earl's Enticement. That's Adaira and Roark's story. I think you'll get a kick out of it.
