Book Description

6 Nov 2014 Avon Romantic Treasure

The dashing Viscount proposes a marriage in name only . . . in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries' sexy historical romance

Abigail Mercer was thrilled at being reunited with Spencer Law, whom she met once and later married by proxy. But now Viscount Ravenswood denies all knowledge of their union! Too many witnesses have made it impossible for the secretive Spencer to reject his bride without causing a scandal. So he has proposed a marriage in name only until they can locate his mysteriously absent younger brother—who is responsible for everything!—and untangle this messy affair.

Abigail is incensed, irate . . . and irresistibly attracted to this handsome, infuriating man who hides his smoldering passion behind a proper exterior. So the lady will agree to his terms on one condition: Spencer must seal their bargain with a kiss. But he finds that one deep, lingering, unforgettable kiss isn't nearly enough. And keeping his hands off his pretty wife is going to be much harder than he thought.

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars very nice "turn of the screw" 5 Feb 2004
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Spencer Law, Viscount Ravenswood, travels with his younger brother "Nat" to the U.S. to meet on a business prospect with the owner of Mercer Medical Company. It is an instant attraction between and his lovely daughter, Abigail, but Spencer is quick to forget her, thinking never to see her again.
Abigail Mercer turns up, a year later to cause all sorts of confusion in Spencer's life. He is waiting Nat's return - for Nat's engagement part to Lady Eveline. Instead of Nat returning, Abigail shows up - and informs him they are married. She had met him once, but later married him "By Proxy". Spenser is loathe to learn Nat forged documents to the proxy marriage, stole all Abigail's inheritance, leaving her money to go to end.
Spenser is furious, and would like to dismiss his "bride", but far too many people know about this. Spenser never expected to marry because of a physical problem caused by a wound. So he proposes that "stay married" until he finds Nat and gets her money back.
But things are not as they seem in many corners and Nat may turn out to be a faery-godfather rather than a scoundrel, as Spenser begins to fall for Abigail.
Very warm and cuddling romance that leaves you with a smile on your face penned under a very deft hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable... 9 Feb 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this and think that it one of the best Sabrina Jeffries I have read. The heroine is not constantly fainting at the sight of the handsome viscount as in some other romance novels. A great way to sit down and make a few hours disappear on a snowy afternoon....

5.0 out of 5 stars Another sexy read from Sabrina Jeffries 21 Feb 2004
By V - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sabrina Jeffries is one author that has written romance novels that I have absolutely loved and written others that I could barely finish. What have I not liked in those books? Aggravating heroines. But Married to the Viscount's heroine, Abigail Mercer, did not fall into that category. She was a highly likable heroine and I loved this tale of Abigail and her viscount. True to Jeffries style, her hero is strong, strong, strong and in control - or at least he tries to be.
Viscount Spencer Law has recently returned from a trip wherein he visited his brother in America. During his trip he had become acquainted with Abigail Mercer, the daughter of a successful medicinal inventor. Spencer never intends to marry so he ignores his attraction to Abigail. His refusal to marry is at the heart of Married to the Viscount and is not your usual "I don't plan to marry" hero talk. Spencer plans for his younger brother to continue their family line. However, his brother doesn't want that responsibility either although their reasoning is vastly different.
Abigail was fascinated with Viscount Spencer Law when he visited America. She fondly remembers him and eagerly accepts his proposal of marriage by proxy. Spencer's brother stands in for him at this proxy marriage and makes plans for Abigail to travel to England to join her new husband once her father dies. Abigail arrives in England at the viscount's residence about a month later and gives the viscount one big surprise. It seems that Viscount Spencer Law knows nothing of his proxy marriage. Their initial confrontation is made somewhat public since the viscount is hosting a dinner at the time. Abigail faints, as she is thoroughly humiliated and greatly saddened at the truth - she is not married. The viscount is confused, enraged, and at the same time sympathetic of Abigail's vulnerable situation. He wants to do bodily harm to his scheming brother who masterminded this fake proxy marriage but he can't. His brother has disappeared and taken Abigail's dowry with him.
Just how this debacle is resolved is, of course, the story of Married to the Viscount. Abigail is well rounded, sensible and mature. She is also older than most virginal heroines. Spencer is not so mature although he is the older, more seasoned of the two. It is his fears and hurt that drive the interaction between the couple. It is not a boring book in the least - it is a fascinating story that I found difficult to put down. The action begins within the first dozen pages and it is basically a love story. There are no villains lurking around the corner. The couple doesn't spend time with silly misunderstandings or lies. Jeffries treats her readers to an intense love story beyond the typical romance plot lines. The story is a luscious one as well and the sensual rating is about a 4.25 out of 5.0 (see More About Me for rating guidelines).
All said - I think you can tell that I highly recommend Married to the Viscount. It is a refreshing romance that I will keep to read another day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fans of this series won't be disappointed!! 12 Jan 2004
By Fruit Loop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Readers of Ms. Jeffries' previous books will remember the hero of this one, Lord Ravenswood, from "Dance of Seduction." Like me, they probably viewed him as a stuffy bore....but believe me, he's been holding out on us. The heroine is vibrant, intelligent, and more than a match for the former spymaster and his uptight Regency cronies.
This one is hot, folks! Don't miss it! A fitting end to an excellent series

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable historical 31 Dec 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1821 Viscount Spencer Law accompanied his brother Nat to Philadelphia where he meets attractive Abigail Mercer and her ailing father, owner of Mercer Medicinal Company. Nat wants to own half of Mercer Medicinal, but Spencer has some doubts yet promises to fund the venture. However, the Home office calls Spencer back to England so he leaves Nat behind in the states.
A year later, Spencer waits for the arrival of Nat, who is late to his own engagement party to lady Evelina. However, instead of Nat's grand entrance, Abigail, in mourning due to her beloved father's death enters claiming to be Spencer's wife by proxy. Apparently, Nat forged documents, stole Abigail's dowry, and sat in for Spencer at a ceremony. Spencer, who had no plans to marry due to a war injury leaving him unable to produce children, sells Abigail with the idea of a marriage of convenience until they find his wastrel brother who is in hiding.
Before readers draw negative conclusions about Nat, he paid for Abigail to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Thus he is much more complex than just the first brush con artist that he seems. Spencer is an intriguing lead protagonist firmly believing he has no future and that the heir must come from Nat. Abigail is a charmer who makes Spencer feels whole. Regency romance fans will have good feelings towards author Sabrina Jeffries for this enjoyable historical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maximum Entertainment. 4.75 Stars. 26 Feb 2004
By MaryGrace Meloche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Congratulations to Sabrina Jeffries on this effort. This gal can write comedy. I giggled and laughed through the amusing pages. Yet, I found the author still maintained an air of yearning and passion. Not a small feat!
The storyline is delightfully pure - a stuffy English Viscount and a beautiful, exotic woman. His attitude? "Appearance is everything." Her attitude? "Hogwash."
The year is 1821, and in a Philadelphia pub two brothers sit and drink hard cider. Spencer Law, the fifth Viscount Ravenswood daydreams and mutters about the maddening, intriguing Miss Abigail Mercer they recently met. After several mugs of cider, the normally reserved viscount even spouts love poetry. His brother watches in astonished fascination and an idea is born.
Viscount Ravenswood returns to his uncluttered life in England. Weeks later, Abigail Mercer travels to England to begin her role as his viscountess. One problem, Ravenswood is not Abigail's husband or is he? With this, Sabrina Jeffries opens the flood gates.
This talented author pens a cheerful, tantalizing book from the first page to the last. Spencer Law is a man who does not know what he is neglecting; Abigail Mercer is only too happy to show him. She is an adorable heroine; she is perpetually upbeat and methodically waves her magic wand over the viscount, the refined upper class, and the spellbound reader.

Truly, "Married to the Viscount" is an amusing, sensual book. Why not a perfect score? Disturbingly, this reader felt a contemporary touch in some struggles and expressions. Nevertheless, this is a good book, and I will continue my search for this clever author.
