The Elusive Lord Everhart by Vivienne Lorret Review

The Elusive Lord Everhart
The Rakes of Fallow Hall # 1
By: Vivienne Lorret
Releasing March 24, 2015
Avon Impulse

Gabriel Ludlow, Viscount Everhart will never marry, and thus is sure to win the bachelor’s wager against his friends. Assuming, of course, that his deepest secret—a certain letter containing a marriage proposal made in a moment of passion—doesn’t surface. After all, without Calliope Croft to tempt him, there’s no danger in losing. Or in falling in love.

Calliope wants revenge. Five years ago, an anonymous love letter stole her heart and ultimately broke it. Now, Casanova has struck again, and Calliope vows to unmask the scoundrel, stopping him from breaking any more hearts. Yet, time and again, Gabriel distracts her from her task, until she can no longer deny that something about him calls to her...

Gabriel was a fool to deny the depth of his feelings for Calliope, but the threat that kept him from her five years ago remains. Now, he must choose between two paths: break her heart all over again or finally succumb to loving the risk of losing everything.

I am super excited to be starting a new series by the amazing Vivienne Lorret, and I wasn’t disappointed in the lease.
This is a story where a letter is the most important part. Five years ago Calliope Croft received a love letter, which changed the course of her life. She knew that she could not accept the proposal of marriage from a friend, with such love and passion out there waiting for her…but that was before other people received the letters also. Calliope thinks she knows who sent the letter and not she is out to expose him for the heartless fraud that he is.
Gabriel Ludlow aka Viscount Everhart; loves Calliope with all his heart, but her bother refuses to allow him to court her. Now five years later Calliope is back in his life and asking questions; But Gabriel long with three friends have entered in to a stupid wager, with the terms of them remaining bachelors. Add to the mix Calliope’s crazy cousin and that leaves you with a story that is not only heartfelt, but also one that has humor, which for a reader who normally hates romantic-comedies; I have fallen in love with this story.
I was blown away by the sheer pleasure of this story. I fell in love with the characters in this book, but my favorites are Montwood and Danvers, they are such riots.
Vivienne Lorret has done it again, she has made me fall in love with a whole bunch of new characters, whose stories I am clamoring to find out. I have to say that she has become one of my new favorite historical romance authors, Her stories are from the heart, flawless in there execution and very well researched, which leaves you with a timeless story that you will never forget.
With all that being said, I can only give The Elusive Lord Everhart one score…
10 out of 10!
