About this ebook

England, 1820. To gain a certain marquess’s notice, Lady Albina Beauchamp aims to win the derby. What she hadn’t planned for is the price handsome Mr. Edmund White asks in payment to train her to race: each lesson for a kiss.

A first place finish isn't the only thing worth racing for

Lady Albina Beauchamp is in love with the Marquess of Satterfield. Unfortunately, his only interest is in horses, and doesn’t know she exists. But when the marquess confesses he will bestow his undying admiration on the jockey racing the winning horse at Emberton Derby, Albina sets out to win his affections by training to race.

Mr. Edmund White is a master groomsmen for the Earl of Amhurst in line for a viscountcy, should he abandon his passion for horses and become a respectable sheep owner. But horses are his love--until he meets Lady Albina and her silly notions of racing. When she affirms she will enter the derby with or without his assistance, Edmund not only instructs his student in racing, but seduction as well.

For Albina, a first place finish isn’t the only thing at stake. She must decide whether to take her place in society...or follow her heart and love a groom.

Albina knows what she wants but how far will she go to achieve it. As unique as her name Lady Albina is captivating. She has the gumption to dream bring and the heart to make her wildest dreams a reality. Her inner beauty and sense of adventure fly right off the page. Her willingness to achieve her goals however is not always in her best interest and lands her in an unlikely situation. Falling in love with the wrong man. Edmund has the heart, and adventurous spirit to be her perfect match. All he has to do is convince her that he's the man she wants. I received an ARC of To Win a Viscount in exchange for an honest review. There were times the story faltered but nothing major. Despite that it remained full of great qualities. The title doesn't make the man, the heart does. Beautiful message with a charming story.

To Win a Viscount #2 in "Daughters of Amhurst" by Frances Fowlkes is a unique Regency Historical Romance. While, Book 2, it can be read as a stand alone. Set in 1820 England. This is the story of Albina Beauchamp and Edmund White. Albina is in love with the Marquess of Satterfield, but he's only sees horses. So Albina, enlists the help of Edmund, a groomsmen in the Amhurst employ. She wishes to be a winning horse jockey. Edmund loves horses and stables, so he agrees to teach Albina about horses, as well as, use a bit of seduction. Edmund, is the heir to a viscountcy, himself, but loves horses, ans doesn't wish the responsibilities involved in a Vicountcy. What follows is a story in love blossoming into a HEA. In the beginning, Albina, is a bit self-centered, naive, and a frustrating, young lady. It was interesting to watch her grow into herself, become, a kind and charming young lady. Edmund, is kind, patient, encouraging, amiable with an adventurous spirit. I enjoyed watching Albina and Edmund's love blossom. Steady paced, uniquely written with well-developed characters. Fans of horses, horse racing, life's lessons and finding out life has many twists and turns, and love developes in very strange circumstances, will enjoy "To Win a Viscount". A sweet, and engaging Regency Romance. Received for an honest review from Net Galley. Rating: 4 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR
