persuade him to call but Frances is uncomfortable knowing Lydia is husband hunting Lydia is beautiful spoiled and used to getting her own way carelessly insisting that it s perfectly alright for Frances to visit a young man without a chaperone as she has no reputation to damage the implication being it s because she s noonger a marriageable young woman Hurt but not particularly surprised by her sister s callousness Frances gives in when Lydia threatens to tell their parents of her jewellery making activitiesUnusually for a viscount Arthur Amberton refuses to Notes for the Everlost live at the family seat Amberton Castle as it holds too many painful memories and instead maintains a small farm near the village of Sandsend When Frances arrives there she s surprised to find it deserted

Stepbrother Romance) looks at Frances and sees only her and realises that for the first time in years he feelsike himself and whole again Their romance is nicely done although both of them have reasons for thinking they should try to fight their mutual attraction there s definite chemistry between them and I particularly iked the way they support one another and encourage each other to step out of their comfort zonesI mentioned that the book has weaknesses and these are principally to do with certain events in Arthur s past and his reaction to them He holds himself responsible for his father s death and also uestions his mental health based on one isolated incident citing that concern as his reason for eschewing marriage The black moment that comes near the end and threatens his and Frances happiness is somewhat flimsy as well and it s been and gone in almost the blink of an eye which made me uestion the need for its presence at allThose uibbles apart however The Viscount s Veiled Lady was an enjoyable read and I d certainly recommend it to anyone in the market for a gently moving character driven romance The Viscount s Veiled Lady is the third and final book in the Whitby Weddings series by author Jenni Fletcher Although this story can be read as a standalone I highly recommend the entire series based in the town of Whitby Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire northern England rich in history If you ve already ready book two in this series then you ve already met Arthur Amberton Viscount Scorborough Arthur was definitely an interesting character in the second book After fighting with his father over a forced engagement he mysteriously disappeared for nine months with everyone assuming he was dead He returned at the end of book two very much alive This story picks up from book two with Arthur iving and working on a farm away from society and avoiding the responsibility of his titleFrances Webster is the younger sister of the woman Arthur was

They were two extremely Crush It! lovable people who are hiding from the world in desperate need of someone to help them see a way back toife As A ady hidden from societyA viscount with his own secretsWhen Frances Webster meets brooding Arthur Amberton on Whitby shores he’s a different.
Hese two meet again they form a friendship and gradually start to trust and reveal their fears and insecurities with each other It was wonderful to see them support each other and help each other gain their self confidence back and start to have feeling for each other Although their path to HEA is not completely smooth their romance was well written and beautifully done This was an absolutely perfect story to end this series From the wonderful secondary characters the fabulous storyline the fascinating setting of Whitby to a couple who captured my heart it was a story I just couldn t put down It was great to see a glimpse of Ianthe Robert from the first book and I oved how Violet and Lance Arthur s twin younger brother from the second book played a major role in this story as well Such a fascinating city Whitby and a wonderful series that I highly recommend Jenni Fletcher does not disappoint with the third installment of her Whitby Weddings series The heroine Frances discovers that her feelings for her sister s ex fiance are than that of friendship Now with a brooding hero a manipulative sister and a scar that embodies all kinds of insecurities Frances must step into the person she was meant to be and take what she wantsHighly recommended It can be read as a standalone This is the second particular book I have read by this author the other had a slight edge for me in terms of enjoyment but The Viscount s Veiled Lady Whitby Weddings 3 was a really great read that I enjoyed a Deep Listening lotSo this is a historical romance and one of the tamer onesIn terms of spice and heat factor this is uiteow on the hot scale some Bird-by-Bird Gardening light petting and kissing and references to deeper intimacies in the epilogueIt s in keeping with the books time which is theate 1800 s and felt authentic to the period we are dealing withThe story is part of a series but in my opinion can be read as a standalone I did no issuesOur tale takes place around Whitby and focuses on Viscount Arthur Amberton a brooding deep man with some deep seated issues and Miss Frances Webster twenty two year old spinster who upon scarring her face a few years back now wears a veil to shield itThese two come into reacuaintance after Frances is blackmailed into matchmaking for her vain and self absorbed sisterSo this was a well written enjoyable read that I really did enjoyIt was a relatively uick easy read that eft me feeling warm and happy insideIt had enough twists and angst to keep me entertained and invested without switching me offI also really adored the epilogue and the message I felt this imparted about beauty being in the eye of the beholderThis was a sweet feel good historical romance that I am happy to recommendI voluntary reviewed an Arc of The Viscount s
