seriously romantic: only a viscount will do by tamara gill

only a viscount will do is the third book in the to marry a rogue series. lady alice worthingham may be a duke's daughter, but she believes that she can do more than play the role society would box her into. she wants to make people's lives better and she isn't above using her own inheritance to ensure that she does good.

when she and her mother are accosted by the surrey bandit one evening, alice is appalled and curiously attracted to the villain. her attraction makes sense when she eventually figures out that callum, lord ardnel is the surrey bandit.

she's been attracted to lord ardnel for over a season. she keeps trying to forget him because he's been nothing but a jerk to her, but even so, she finds him compelling. the thing about callum is, he's not a typical society gentleman. he didn't grow up expecting the title. and the one he has inherited is facing crippling debt to moneylenders.

the reason he resorted to being a highwayman was because the moneylenders insisted that the jewels were the only form of payment they would accept. and they threatened the life of callum's daughter, amelia. when alice confronts callum about his thievery he admits the truth, although he hesitates at giving her the full story.

as alice spends more time with neil she forgives him for his transgressions, and their chemistry continues to grow. but given everything that callum has done, and the desperate state of his finances, the way forward for them is not clear. and because callum hasn't been completely honest with alice, there is still a sliver of distrust between them. and alice will need to risk everything to prove that she can put callum's past behind them in order to ensure they have a future.

**only a viscount will do will publish may 22, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangleld publishing (select: historical) in exchange for my honest review.
