Magnificently riveting and deeply romantic, The Viscount's Wife shows the complexities of navigating a new marriage while fitting into a new world.

Lord William Almonbury is the spare heir, allowing him the freedom to travel the world and marry for love. Inheriting his father's viscountship was never in the cards, but when both his brother and father become ill, William is summoned home to take over the family affairs.

When Debbey met and married William Almonbury in America, his nobility was part of his past. She never imagined due to unforeseen circumstances, she would not only move across the world, but suddenly become a viscount's wife. Thrust into a world unlike anything she could have ever imagined, Debbey must learn to navigate being the new Viscountess Braybridge.

Will William be able to handle the pressures of his new title? Can Debbey win the hearts of William's friends and family? Or will their new life in England destroy their hope for a happy marriage?

Keep reading for an excerpt:

As they moved along the outskirts of the woods, Debbey’s intoxicating scent of jasmine tickled his nose. William enjoyed the feel of his wife leaning back against him. The rhythmic pattering of her heart pulsated through to his own chest, enticing him to lean closer. His lips brushed the edge of her neck. He felt her inhale sharply, but she did not pull away. Instead, she moved towards his caress.

The horse moved evenly beneath them as it galloped along the frosted ground. A few minutes later, they arrived at their destination. William dismounted first and helped Debbey descend after him.

She turned to face him with a puzzled look on her face. “What are we doing here?” she inquired quizzically.

“Your favorite fruit is a persimmon, correct?”

She nodded as he took her hand and guided her into the center of a small orchard.

He stated, “I wanted to surprise you. Our neighbors at Harrington House have an extensive orchard. They have an entire section of persimmon trees they imported from America. Lord Blanchard’s daughter loves them.”

Her eyes grew round with awe as she marveled at the trees ripe with enticing offerings. “I can’t believe you thought to do this, William. The trees are so beautiful. Their branches are heavy with the plump fruits.”

“With all you have been through as of late, I wanted to do something special for you.”

William reached up and plucked a persimmon from a nearby tree. He gently rubbed it against the front of his shirt and extended his hand towards her mouth. Her eyes twinkled with appreciation as she gingerly took a bite of the fruit.

Debbey’s eyes grew even wider with excitement as tiny trickles of juice ran down the sides of her mouth. With his free hand, William pulled a handkerchief from his pocket, and dabbed the juice away from her mouth before it could fall and damage her dress.

“I have to say, that is the most delicious persimmon I have ever had the pleasure of sampling.”
