The enchanting story of Caroline's daughter!
Grey St. James is a winner of the K.I.S.S. Hero Award from Romantic Times.
1814: Grey St. James has escaped from Napoleon's prison on the rocky isle of Mont St. Michel. Desperate and dangerous, he is a far cry from the rakish nobleman who broke hearts in Regency London.
In her uncle Nicholai's French chateau, Natalya Beauvisage is writing a novel. At 26, she is beautiful but hardly marriageable, for she is devoted to being an author. However, when a potently attractive stranger appears to hold her at knifepoint, Natalya thrills to a flesh-and-blood man.
Grey must escape from France and Natalya longs to return to America, so they form an unlikely alliance, traveling through France, Regency England, and across the ocean to the Beauvisage home in Philadelphia. Natalya is caught up in a passionate fantasy that surpasses any she could imagine, but Grey's heart is imprisoned by dark secrets that must be uncovered before he can love again....
Reunite with the couples from Caroline, Touch the Sun, and Spring Fires in this enchanting & witty historical romance!

Another Delightful Wright/Campbell Pairing!
I first met Cynthia Wright's NATALYA in my trade paperback copy, which I was very excited about because I was able to get a matching copy of her mother's story, CAROLINE. (These little details are very important to us obsessive readers.) I then got to revisit Natalya Beauvisage in her spiffy new ebook format as HER DANGEROUS VISCOUNT. And now I was able to pair another reread of the story with a listen to the eaudio format.
Twenty-six year-old Natalya, daughter of Alec and Caro Beauvisage, has been living in France for the past six years as an authoress in her Uncle Nicholai's Chateau du Soleil. While she loves France and loves writing, she is starting to miss her family and home in Philadelphia. Grey St. James has escaped from prison and makes his way to Chateau du Soleil for assistance in getting back to England. Since Grey held Natalya at knife point during their first meeting, needless to say she is not fond of him. But it seems that they can help each other get to England and then go on to Philadelphia.
As to be expected, Cynthia Wright blends humor and meticulous details into the story. This historical period is the War of 1812/Napoleonic Wars and the reader gets a strong feeling of time and place. Whether it is your first read/listen or your fifth, HER DANGEROUS VISCOUNT is an engrossing story, giving you a chance to revisit old friends from other Rakes and Rebels books and cheer on Natalya and Grey.
Cynthia Wright’s storytelling paired with Tim Campbell’s narration are both engaging and satisfying. I now find that I cannot resist Tim Campbell reading Cynthia Wright’s books. To say I love his voice would not be accurate. The correct version of that sentence is that I love his voiceS. Campbell makes each character very distinct and gives him/her their own voice. Several times I had to remind myself that it was only one narrator! As a librarian, I am often helping customers who will actually ask for audiobooks by the narrator as opposed to the author and are willing to listen to anything that narrator reads. I now put Tim Campbell in that category. And when he is reading a book by one of my favorite authors, it is a no-brainer—a must-listen!
Note: I was given a free copy of the eaudiobook in exchange for an honest review.
