VYING FOR THE VISCOUNT

MY REVIEW

This is the first novel in the new series Hearts on the Heath. I was so looking forward to diving into this book. It is an amazing story of love, family, faith and new beginnings. The chemistry between Hudson and Bianca is really amazing. Her father decides that Bianca must get married before her younger stepsister, all the while her stepmother wants to set her up with someone she doesn’t like and has nothing in common with. Bianca struggles with the decisions of what she wants in her life and what her family wants for her life. I love how Bianca finds her inner strength to stand her ground against her stepmother. Hudson finds himself feeling distant from God when he lived in India. When he moves to England, he does make some changes in his life, like attending church and reading his Bible. As his faith grows, he learns to trust God for his future. I really liked how the horse training and racing revolved around this story. The connection of the people and the animals was fantastic. If you like well-written, stories of faith, hope and love…this one is for you. I anxiously await the continuation of this series, as it is proven to be a great one.

I have read many books by this author and I absolutely love her writing style. She knows how the truly capture her audience and keep their attention.  I loved the cameo appearances of the characters from her other books that this author wrote. It amazes me the way Kristi Ann Hunter intertwines previous characters into new storylines. I thoroughly enjoyed this regency romance novel, and I’m sure you will too.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

For Hudson, the newly titled Viscount Stildon, moving to England from India where he was born and raised was already an arduous enough endeavor. When he learns the fate of the racing empire he inherited along with his title depends upon him getting in the good graces of another stable owner, he's even more at a loss.

The stable at the neighboring estate has been Miss Bianca Snowley's refuge for years, and when a strange man appears to be stealing the horses, she jumps to their protection without a second thought. Upon learning Hudson is actually the new owner, she can't help but be intrigued by the area's newest eligible bachelor.

Any thought of romance is quickly set aside, however, when Hudson proposes they work together to secure suitable spouses for each other. As their friendship grows, Hudson and Bianca begin to reconsider what they truly want in life. But will societal expectations and the weight of their responsibilities keep them from pursuing their true desires?
