about

Prudence Landon has always done exactly as she should. She’s obeyed her parents’ every word, lived by society’s every dictate, and even agreed to marry a man more than twice her age simply because it was expected of her. In the fortnight before her wedding, she decides it’s high time to bend a few rules before life as she knows it is over.

Viscount Ashby leads a charmed life. Betrothed since the age of seven, he is perfectly content to allow his off-the-market status to keep the marriage-minded mamas at bay. When he returns home to his parent’s estate and finds their prim, straight-laced young neighbor swimming naked in broad daylight, he’s both amused and intrigued.

When Ash discovers Prudence’s upcoming nuptials to the aging squire, he decides to help her live a little before the parson’s mousetrap springs closed. But what started as good fun soon leads to something much more. With her wedding fast approaching, they must choose between breaking all the rules and losing their one chance for happiness.

***This is a novella of approximately 28,000 words***

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a bucket list leads to love Prudence Landon is stuck! I mean stuck! She has been the most dutiful daughter and always bent to her parents’ wishes, but this one takes the cake! Her father accepted the local squire’s marriage offer and being the dutiful daughter she also accepted but the man is at least twice her age. Determined to live her life before she must become the dutiful wife instead of the dutiful daughter, Prudence creates her own form of a bucket list. This is her chance of a little rebellion to live as she wants and go against everyone else’s wishes including those nasty little rules set be society. While indulging in the first of her list, she is caught swimming naked in a rather questionable pool of water. Trying to maintain her calm while unknown water creatures are rubbing against her, she faces her neighbor, Lord Ashby and his amusement. Can things get any worse for Prudence? Now she has to figure out a way to shut Lord Ashby up before he tells anyone what she was doing. When they meet again that night for dinner, Lord Ashby is shocked to learn of Prudence’s upcoming marriage. While having a moment alone, Prudence explains her list and Lord Ashby is more than happy to help her achieve each item and even add to it. As partners in crime, Lord Ashby and Prudence can’t help but develop feelings for one another….of course they are just friends as each of them is betrothed to others. Prudence realizes that she doesn’t want to live like this anymore and finally stands up for herself. She calls off the wedding and stands her ground against the threats from the squire and her parent’s attitudes. Lord Ashby finds slightly drunk Prudence who delivers the news of her calling off the wedding. Nothing could make him happier. When he shares that he also has called off his own betrothal, Prudence is shocked but delighted and in her drunken state and his amusement they share their feelings for one another. This book was provided by Netgalley for an honest review. I haven’t read the other four books in this series, although my opinion would be they are just as good as this one. I was delighted with the story and its humor, rebellious antics and how the characters to came together. Having only 112 pages it is a quick and enjoyable read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whimsical, charming and unforgettable. Erin Knightly's charming story is another jewel in her crown of whimsical and entertaining repertoire. Vexed by a Viscount is the story of a woman seeking to break free and experience everything her regimented life has prevented. What ensues is awkward and embarrassing situations that allow her to proceed in making her own choices, become her own person and fall in love wholeheartedly. Ash was never part of the plan yet the heart wants what it wants. Vexed by the Viscount is everything a historical romance should be. Intensely entertaining, exceptionally romantic and very unforgettable. I received an ARC of this novella in exchange for an honest review.
