To Tempt a Viscount By Naomi Boom
Lady Laura Rosing knows two things: first, she will marry for love, and second, she detests rakes. When she meets Lord Gavin Farris, she understands immediately that he fails both her criteria, and worse yet, he is an absolute cad who refuses to leave her be.
Lord Farris has always appreciated women and cannot understand why Lady Laura is so resistant to his charms. While pretty, she is not his usual type, but something about her intrigues him. Much to his chagrin, he finds himself desperately in love with her, but he may be too late. His adamant refusal to marry just might have planted her firmly in the arms of another.

Determined NOT to find love.
To Tempt a Viscount By Naomi Boom is a delightful read. We have Lord Farris who thinks he has all the time in the world to decide on who to marry that is until he meets Lady Laura Rosing. They are thrown together throughout a house party. Lady Laura Rosing is determined NOT to fall for Lord Farris for that would be a stupid mistake. Unknowingly Lady Laura Rosing has no idea how attractive her catty side is for Lord Farris and that this time he means to secure her hand in marriage.
The subplot centres around Lady Laura’s cousin Eleanor and Lord Farris best friend Lord Collins. Lord Collins has set his sights on Eleanor as his future wife. He sees only a strong beautiful lady and doesn’t see her vindictive side. I truly disliked Eleanor with a passion, she’s selfish and nasty and doesn’t really get her comeuppance which is a little disappointing. Everyone seems so focused on Eleanor rather than Lady Laura Rosing which allows the development between Lady Laura and Lord Farris.
Naomi Boom left me with a number of questions that went unanswered. How come Lord Farris wasn’t made to marry Lady Laura Rosing , when he stayed all night at her sick-bed? He’d truly comprised her but no one battered an eyelid? And how was it possible for her to ride every morning without a chaperon? The final point is that it seemed unrealistic that Lord would marry his mistress lady (I couldn’t really see the pairing).
That being send I take pleasure in Historical Romances and Naomi Boom is now on my radar for future reads.
