    I was intrigued by this book when I discovered that it would tell the story of Vangie and Ian from Highlander s Hope They were secondary characters at the time, but the hints about their story were tantalizing to say the least This story was a prequel in ways to Highlander s Hope as it introduced the players in the other story and some scenes in Viscount s Vow filled in details for that one Even though this one chronologically comes first, in a pinch the order doesn t matter and they could st I was intrigued by this book when I discovered that it would tell the story of Vangie and Ian from Highlander s Hope They were secondary characters at the time, but the hints about their story were tantalizing to say the least This story was a prequel in ways to Highlander s Hope as it introduced the players in the other story and some scenes in Viscount s Vow filled in details for that one Even though this one chronologically comes first, in a pinch the order doesn t matter and they could stand a lone My recommendation though after reading them both is to read this one first so people and references to the past make sense Okay with that in mindIan should be in mourning for his brother and father, but instead he is attending one of the numerous London balls on a mission of revenge He plans to find the woman responsible for his brother and father s deaths who has also bewitched away his sister s beau Ian is in a foul temper and while he is surprised by the appearance and demeanor of the femme fatale, Evangeline Caruthers, it does not deter him.Vangie hates participating in society, but she wishes to support her cousin and dearest friend, Yvette during her season Yvette s family has money and Vangie is the half gypsy poor relation so she must be grateful for every little crumb Not that Yvette or her parents make her feel that way on purpose This night is as dreary as the others until the human version of a brooding tiger gets her in his sights Vangie is both frightened and thrilled when she is introduced to Ian.Ian has Evangeline in his grasp and he plans to do something to ruin her, but then fate intervenes and his wish is granted just not the way he imagines for now through a series of circumstances she is his wife But that s not the worst kick to his plans The worst is discovering that he might have been utterly wrong all along about Evangeline Caruthers.My general thoughts on the story are simple I got into the story completely from the very beginning I was totally vested in finding out what would happen between Ian and Vangie The characters were so well written and enjoyable I loved them both and my heart ached for them having the benefit of the narrative switching back and forth between their points of view Things were set in motion however inadvertently that had to play out in the relationship between Ian and Vangie I applaud Ms Cameron for letting this couple feel the results of the lies that led to Ian s actions and thus Ian s lie fueled actions even while I just wanted them to finally catch a break and bit of happiness As the reader, I was able to parse out what really must have led to the situation the two are in and I was right about the culprit And the villain in all this, oh boy was this person a piece of work.Now as to the plot and pacing, this was a tight well written plot that engaged me until almost half way I still enjoyed the latter half of the story, but my credulity was strained by the character and antics of the villain Some of this person s plottings gave a strong wink at gothic horror stuff Again, not that this is awful, just that it made me blink after the different feel of the beginning of the story The jaunt to the third setting the gypsy camp was sheer delight I loved the backdrop, characters and background story taking place there.So all in all this was a wonderful historical romance and can stand up there with the best in this genre The romance leans to the middle between sweet and spicy Those who enjoy a traditional style historical romance with a dash of spice should give this one a try.My thanks to the author for gifting me my copy of the book in exchange for an honest review

    The Viscount s Vow by Collette Cameron is a very pleasant Regency novel While not officially part of a series, it is related to her previous book, Highlander s Hope Interestingly, the events in The Viscount s Vow take place chronologically before Highlander s Hope even though it was published several months later These are Cameron s first two published novels In The Viscount s Vow she demonstrates solid writing skills, but there were also a few things that indicate a beginning writer.Ian Ham The Viscount s Vow by Collette Cameron is a very pleasant Regency novel While not officially part of a series, it is related to her previous book, Highlander s Hope Interestingly, the events in The Viscount s Vow take place chronologically before Highlander s Hope even though it was published several months later These are Cameron s first two published novels In The Viscount s Vow she demonstrates solid writing skills, but there were also a few things that indicate a beginning writer.Ian Hamilton, the new Viscount Warrick, is out for revenge The recent deaths of his father and his younger brother have left him sad and angry He has been told that a young woman, Evangeline Caruthers, is implicated in the dueling death of his brother and a duke He arrives on the London scene with a desire for revenge, but without a specific plan He meets Vangie at a ball and asks her to dance It isn t long before Vangie experiences a debilitating migraine and passes out In Ian s attempts to help her they are left in a compromising situation and are forced to marry There are many questions to answer and situations to endure as Ian and Vangie move toward their Happily Ever After Can Ian change his mind about her role in his brother s death Can he accept her Romani heritage Why does he keep encountering dangerous circumstances I enjoyed reading The Viscount s Vow Collette Cameron s writing kept my interest and evoked great sympathy for the things the characters had to endure One of the most distracting things was her overuse of Regency phrases and slang It is quite clear that she did her historical research and some Regency language would certainly be appropriate, but there was so much that it pulled my attention away from the story Another problem was that she hit on one of my pet peeves one dimensional and or crazy villains Most historical romance writers, in my opinion, are not very good at creating believable villains Since I think that people are not totally black or white, but are varying shades of gray, it frustrates me when a villain is totally evil One way that writers accomplish this is to make the villain evilly insane, which also frustrates me Most experienced writers hopefully can sometimes do a better job with villains so I chalk this up to Cameron s relative inexperience She definitely has potential to create good books This one was a bit melodramatic, but the steamy bits were well done Both Ian and Vangie showed depth and emotion Her descriptions of action scenes were vivid and easy to imagine I will be glad to read other books by Collette Cameron and I think she will be a successful writer of historical romances

    Wow I read Collette Cameron s first book and loved it, but this second book surpassed my expectations I started reading it one night, and finished it the next morning I couldn t wait to discover the outcome between her two main characters This book flows quickly and will grab your attention from the start I can t wait forfrom this author.

    Believing Evangeline Vangie Caruthers to be responsible for his father and brother s death, Ian Hamilton, Viscount Warrick, lies in wait for the perfect opportunity to ruin her Yet, in spite of his personal protests, he notices every nuance of her expression, every step of her graceful dancing, and the slightest twitch of her smile Had he imagined it, or had her steps faltered and her shoulders slumped, just the merest bit Was her smile a little strained Ian stared, searching her face No Believing Evangeline Vangie Caruthers to be responsible for his father and brother s death, Ian Hamilton, Viscount Warrick, lies in wait for the perfect opportunity to ruin her Yet, in spite of his personal protests, he notices every nuance of her expression, every step of her graceful dancing, and the slightest twitch of her smile Had he imagined it, or had her steps faltered and her shoulders slumped, just the merest bit Was her smile a little strained Ian stared, searching her face No, she smiled as brightly as ever pg 10 428 And even when his mind for vengeance won out, he still retained enough morals to help Vangie when she fainted for lack of air though he planned to ruin her in the beginning which unfortunately landed them in a compromising situation as a result as his trying to help her breathe, and thus, the forced marriage trope was employed My initial opinion of Ian as an honorable rogue changes quickly enough Yes, he is a scoundrel of the first order, but he is also misguided and doubles as a villain for most of the story As the story hasfrom his perspective than Vangie s, the streak of cruelness within his character arises quickly and it takes him a long time to channel that strong emotion into somethingsubtle, to like and love Unsurprisingly, the latter is the biggest challenge for Ian, as he holds Vangie in such contempt, as well as veiled prejudice against her Romani blood Vangie is the quintessential pure and beautiful heroine, who has a heart of gold and astounding gentleness despite her situation being snubbed by the ton for her birth She is also not a complete pushover, which is evident when she defiantly runs away from Ian after their marriage Vangie is a very emphatic character, which makes her a nice counterpart to Ian s harsh coldness, in ways like Christine to Erik in Phantom of the Opera, but for the Ian holds a grudge against her The story s resolution was done nicely, tying up loose ends and giving a finish to the true villain of the book, who didn t emerge immediately amidst the tangled emotions of the protagonists The historical research I greatly enjoyed, especially the story takes place in both Regency London and Romani dwellings, with detailed points of each setting that makes it distinct and colorful I will certainly be anticipating Collette Cameron s next work

    This was a decent enough story It had my attention enough to keep me listening reading audible reveiw I liked the Vangie well enough, although I do wish she would have been a bit stronger female character She was a bit too meek for my preference in a heroine I liked Ian well enough, he was kind, handsome and strong They did have some chemistry together and there are a couple nicely written sex scenes.The story line and plot was decent The evil stepmother was really vicious The problem I This was a decent enough story It had my attention enough to keep me listening reading audible reveiw I liked the Vangie well enough, although I do wish she would have been a bit stronger female character She was a bit too meek for my preference in a heroine I liked Ian well enough, he was kind, handsome and strong They did have some chemistry together and there are a couple nicely written sex scenes.The story line and plot was decent The evil stepmother was really vicious The problem I had was there was very little dialogue at all It was all story telling And the misunderstanding that caused Vangie to leave him was a bit stupid after what the stepmother did to her Why would a person even consider what the evil stepmother said, ever That stupid part and the hardly any dialogue bothered me Not enough communication for me Not a bad story, but it could have been much better.As for the narration, Stevie Zimmerman is hit or miss with me More recently its been a hit Sometimes I love her narrations and sometimes not so much She did a very good job with this one The men sounded like men, the hero sounded handsome and strong Everyone had their own distinct voice and she had a nice reading voice I would listen toof her books if she continues to get better like she has in this book

    Collette Cameron has done it again with The Viscount s Vow Miss Cameron has weaved a lovely story of a forced marriage between Vangie and Ian, deftly bringing the two together for their happily ever after Along the way there are cutthroats, from all levels of society and a journey into a Gypsy camp.

    I m happy to say I enjoyed this book just as much as Ms Cameron s first book, Highlander s Hope I read it all in one day and could not put it down Ian Hamilton, Viscount Warrick, is determined to ruin Miss Evangeline Caruthers Vangie , the woman he s been told is responsible for the deaths of his brother and father When he finally meets her, he finds himself a bit distracted by her charm, which only ticks him offBefore he can finish his plan, she suddenly collapses and he comes to her I m happy to say I enjoyed this book just as much as Ms Cameron s first book, Highlander s Hope I read it all in one day and could not put it down Ian Hamilton, Viscount Warrick, is determined to ruin Miss Evangeline Caruthers Vangie , the woman he s been told is responsible for the deaths of his brother and father When he finally meets her, he finds himself a bit distracted by her charm, which only ticks him offBefore he can finish his plan, she suddenly collapses and he comes to her aid As they say, no good deed goes unpunished and they find themselves forced to wed 3 days later Because of his assumptions about the kind of woman she is, he really mucks things up immediately At first I thought she was entirely too quick to forgive him, but when her reasoning was revealed, it was hilarious and sweet I was so not expecting it He realizes he was obviously misled regarding Vangie, and he sets out to confront those responsible, including his flighty sister and horrid step mother.It s hard not to love Vangie She s compassionate and sweet, feisty and unpretentious, and a tad scatterbrained She s also a heck of a fighter when she needs to be She s half gypsy, which automatically makes her inferior in the eyes of refined society It was interesting to read about the Romani culture and customs, especially in contrast to English high society Despite Ian s mistaken anger, we see from the beginning, via his dealings with her family, that he is an honorable man When things go bad and Vangie runs away to her gypsy family, I loved the lengths Ian goes to, to not only make sure she is well and happy, but to win over her kin as well Another thing I enjoyed about The Viscount s Vow, as well as Highlander s Hope, is the humor and regency slang Had the story not been so engaging, the slang and oaths might have felt a bit overused, but I was giggling too much to really mind it That, along with lots of action and romance make for a very fun read and I definitely look forward to book 3 I was given an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review
