Married To The Viscount
By Sabrina Jeffries

      Spencer and Abby literally burn up the pages with their passionate lovemaking, but their personal emotions are poignant and touching.

    Abigail Mercer arrives in England to see her husband, Viscount Ravenswood; she is met with a cold welcome. The lord is clueless that he has been well and truly married by proxy. To stop gossip from destroying her reputation, as well as his family’s, he puts forth the proposition that Abby stay his wife--in name only. Abby dislikes that idea; she loves him and has ever since they met when he visited her home in Philadelphia. The cold lord, who tells her how to dress, behave and literally how to breathe, is not the warm-hearted man who stole her heart.

    Spencer is incensed after he learns what his brother Nathaniel’s latest scheme will cost him. His mock marriage to the beautiful Abby is not something he can have, although he wants it more than all the gold in England. Spencer can never be a real husband, not with the secret he carries in his heart, nor can he ever hope to be a father. His dreams of siring an heir became ashes during a battle that left him severely injured. The woman he loves more than life is making his life miserable, but he can do nothing to stop her.

     Missing dowries, proper etiquette and a marriage purchased with lies torment Abby and Spencer as they rediscover their mutual attraction for one another. Ms. Jeffries is totally breathtaking in this tale set in Regency England. She throws out the rules of proper this, proper that, and gives fans a sizzling, exciting and wonderful romance.
