How to Catch a Wild Viscount

She’s on the hunt for a hero…

Luke Trenton, Viscount Merritt, returned from war a changed man. Battle stripped away his civility and brought out his inner beast. There is no charm or tenderness in him now; only dark passions and a hardened soul. He has nothing to offer the starry-eyed, innocent girl who pledged her heart to him four years ago.

But Cecily Hale isn’t a girl any longer. She’s grown into a woman—one who won’t be pushed away. She and Luke are guests at a house party when a local legend captures their friends’ imaginations. While the others plunge into the forest on a wild goose...er, stag chase, Cecily’s on the hunt for a man. She has only a few moonlit nights to reach the real Luke…the wounded heart she knows still beats inside the war-ravaged body…or she could lose him to the darkness forever.

This is a novella of approximately 20,000 words, or 80 pages. It was originally published under the title The Legend of the Werestag.

A not-so-merry widow...

The widowed Marchioness of Folkestone is notorious for her parties, her art collection, and her utter disregard for the rules. But Ellie Claiborne knows her destruction is near. The new marquess is her first lover -- the man whose sculpted body and sardonic grin haunt her every time she picks up her paintbrush. If he ever returns to claim his inheritance, her heart won't survive seeing him again.

A man determined to destroy her...

Nicholas Claiborne hasn't stepped foot in England since watching Ellie marry his cousin. He has no use for the gorgeous, heartless girl who betrayed him, or the title she abandoned him for. But when his business in India turns deadly, Nick must return to London to uncover a murderer -- and take revenge on the woman he couldn't force himself to forget.

A love they can't escape...

Nick hates Ellie's transformation from sweet debutante to jaded seductress. Ellie despises him for leaving her behind. Still, the sparks between them reignite the passion that should have been their destiny. As their demands of each other turn darker and a potential killer closes in, they must decide whether to guard the fragile remnants of their hearts -- or find a way to fall in love all over again.

What the reviewers say:

“Deeply moving, often painful and truly romantic, Sara Ramsey's third Muses of Mayfair book is a poignant journey from start to finish… Such a moving, immersive work that I couldn't stop reading until Ellie and Nick's story had played out. Sara Ramsey has written a deeply emotional, challenging and ultimately rewarding story that should be savored.” - Bridget, The Romance Reviews

“This book takes the [historical romance] genre to another level...The novel is filled with characters who are complex and compelling, who have stories of their own to tell...I found myself making excuses to extend my reading time just that bit further.” - Margaret Fisk, Tales to Tide You Over

“This is one of the sexier regencies I've read, so if you like steamy scenes it should be an auto-buy. It's a sexy romp, with a little intrigue...Recommended for lovers of sexy regency hijinks and revenge plots.” - Elyse, Goodreads

“Yet again I enjoyed the continuation of The Muses of Mayfair series by Sara Ramsey...It is so very easy to fall in love with the story of each one of these friends. Each woman is so very remarkable in her own right and so very strong.” - Robin, Romancing the Book
