    This is the second particular book I have read by this author the other had a slight edge for me in terms of enjoyment but The Viscount s Veiled Lady Whitby Weddings 3 was a really great read that I enjoyed a lot.So this is a historical romance and one of the tamer ones.In terms of spice and heat factor, this is quite low on the hot scale some light petting and kissing and references to deeper intimacies in the epilogue.It s in keeping with the books time which is the late 1800 s and felt a This is the second particular book I have read by this author the other had a slight edge for me in terms of enjoyment but The Viscount s Veiled Lady Whitby Weddings 3 was a really great read that I enjoyed a lot.So this is a historical romance and one of the tamer ones.In terms of spice and heat factor, this is quite low on the hot scale some light petting and kissing and references to deeper intimacies in the epilogue.It s in keeping with the books time which is the late 1800 s and felt authentic to the period we are dealing with.The story is part of a series but in my opinion, can be read as a standalone I did no issues.Our tale takes place around Whitby and focuses on Viscount Arthur Amberton a brooding deep man with some deep seated issues and Miss Frances Webster twenty two year old spinster who upon scarring her face a few years back now wears a veil to shield it.These two come into reacquaintance after Frances is blackmailed into matchmaking for her vain and self absorbed sister.So this was a well written enjoyable read that I really did enjoy.It was a relatively quick easy read that left me feeling warm and happy inside.It had enough twists and angst to keep me entertained and invested without switching me off.I also really adored the epilogue and the message I felt this imparted about beauty being in the eye of the beholder.This was a sweet feel good historical romance that I am happy to recommend.I voluntary reviewed an Arc of The Viscount s Veiled Lady Whitby Weddings 3 All opinions expressed are entirely my own Reviewed By Beckie Bookwormhttps www.facebook.com beckiebookworm www.beckiebookworm.com

between a man who has allowed his past to imprison him and a young woman whose facial scarring has caused her to fashion a prison, of sorts, for herself The Viscount s Veiled Lady is not without its weaknesses, but the central relationship is nicely developed and the hero and heroine are both likeable characters who have to learn to stop playing it quite so safe if they re to have the life and love they deserve.Frances Webster was injured in an accident some years earlier and was left with a scar down one side of her face Self conscious and feeling that her mother is embarrassed by her looks, Frances rarely attends public events and when she does go out, she never leaves home without wearing a veil Knowing her ugly scar has ruined her marriage prospects her former fianc called off their engagement after the accident and she doesn t expect to ever have another suitor Frances has started to plan for an independent future She s having some success making jewellery from the jet that is found abundantly on the nearby beach and selling it to local shops at a decent profit, even though she knows her family will be horrified at the thought of her engaging in trade.When the story opens, her sister, Lydia whose year of mourning for her husband isn t quite up is begging Frances to take a message to Arthur Amberton, Viscount Scorborough, who is a near neighbour and former suitor She wants Frances to persuade him to call, but Frances is uncomfortable, knowing Lydia is husband hunting Lydia is beautiful, spoiled and used to getting her own way, carelessly insisting that it s perfectly alright for Frances to visit a young man without a chaperone as she has no reputation to damage the implication being it s because she s no longer a marriageable young woman Hurt, but not particularly surprised by her sister s callousness, Frances gives in when Lydia threatens to tell their parents of her jewellery making activities.Unusually for a viscount, Arthur Amberton refuses to live at the family seat, Amberton Castle, as it holds too many painful memories, and instead maintains a small farm near the village of Sandsend When Frances arrives there, she s surprised to find it deserted until she ventures into the house and is confronted by a large, muscled, almost naked young man emerging form one of the rooms Frances doesn t recognise him the Arthur she d known had been slender and elegant and bolts, running out of the house before he can stop her When he catches up with her, Frances has slipped and turned her ankle and in spite of her protests, Arthur insists on carrying her back to the house to make sure no serious damage has been done.Back when he d been courting Lydia, Arthur and Frances had become friends of a sort unlike Lydia s many other suitors, he d never dismissed her younger sister and had taken the time to talk to her and treat her as an adult As the days and weeks pass, Arthur and Frances renew their friendship, albeit in secret Frances doesn t want to hurt Lydia s feelings by admitting that she s spending time with Arthur even though he s made it very clear that he has absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing Lydia again In Arthur s company, Frances rediscovers the bright, vivacious girl she used to be, and while she believes she s unattractive because of the scar on her face, Arthur doesn t agree he looks at Frances and sees only her and realises that for the first time in years he feels like himself and whole again Their romance is nicely done although both of them have reasons for thinking they should try to fight their mutual attraction there s definite chemistry between them and I particularly liked the way they support one another and encourage each other to step out of their comfort zones.I mentioned that the book has weaknesses, and these are principally to do with certain events in Arthur s past and his reaction to them He holds himself responsible for his father s death, and also questions his mental health based on one isolated incident, citing that concern as his reason for eschewing marriage The black moment that comes near the end and threatens his and Frances happiness is somewhat flimsy as well and it s been and gone in almost the blink of an eye, which made me question the need for its presence at all.Those quibbles apart, however, The Viscount s Veiled Lady was an enjoyable read, and I d certainly recommend it to anyone in the market for a gently moving, character driven romance

    Now this is truly wonderful, I have been waiting with bated breath for Arthur s story since briefly meeting him in the previous book I fell in love with his brother Lance the minute I set eyes on him, but I was fascinated with Arthur, I wanted to know him and know why he disappeared and the results of it He was so different to Lance and I can happily say that this was well worth the wait, Ms Fletcher has pulled out all the stops with this beauty It is such a loving story all about two people Now this is truly wonderful, I have been waiting with bated breath for Arthur s story since briefly meeting him in the previous book I fell in love with his brother Lance the minute I set eyes on him, but I was fascinated with Arthur, I wanted to know him and know why he disappeared and the results of it He was so different to Lance and I can happily say that this was well worth the wait, Ms Fletcher has pulled out all the stops with this beauty It is such a loving story all about two people who after both suffering their own personal heartaches find themselves a bit lost in the world, Frances and Arthur are in need of love that can only come from another who understand them and loves them for who they are.When Arthur Amberton returns after his mysterious disappearance Frances is sent with a message to him from her sister Lydia who just happened to be secretly engaged to Arthur that is until he disappeared, now he is back Lydia is determined to be Lady of the manor, she thinks that if she can get him alone for just ten minutes he will fall helplessly in love with her and take her off to Amberton Castle, only problem with that plan is one she is currently in mourning and can not leave the house and two Arthur knows the real Lydia he knows what a manipulator and gold digger she is and wants noting to do with her Which is where Frances comes in, she can be the messenger.Frances only goes along with her sister s slightly mad plan because Lydia being a selfish, spiteful, spoilt little madam, practically blackmail s Frances into doing her dirty work Frances would rather not meddle in their affairs she is far happier making her jet jewellery but with her sisters spiteful threat she dons her veil and off she goes across beautiful Whitby to find a man who no longer wishes to be apart of civilization again and try to persuade him to give her sister the second she Frances knows Lydia doesn t deserve Only as with all great romances stories all doesn t exactly go to plan and what should have a been a simple message delivery turns into a twisted ankle, dinner with the two broodingly beautiful Amberton brother s at Amberton Castles and one sinful lordly pig farmer scandalously peeling off her stockings ouh, la la Followed with lots of pent up lust, frustration, overwhelming emotions and picnics on the beach accompanied with some seriously delicious cakes.But it s not all plain sailing the expression wasn t intentional, but quite fitting and cake eating, our two have got serious issues to over come before either of them can even think about moving on and taking that huge step with one another And this is where the story really comes into it s own, and where Ms Fletcher excels with her gift for portraying most subtle of human emotion in ways that grabs the reader s heart For me it s is their connection, the fact that they are both fractured and how between the two of them they learn to move forward and to be at peace The story really focuses on their psychological emotion, their pain, their vulnerability and their eventual hope for the future, which I found utterly heart warming to read.Frances is such an amazing lady, I felt a real connection with her, she resonated with me in ways that doesn t often happen, I understood her She is a real understated heroine, she is selfless, imaginative, creative, brave and she has an inner strength and intelligence about her that I found utterly captivating She is has lived her life after her terrible accident under the illusion that she is now destined to be alone, that she isn t worth anything and worse she truly thinks herself as a burden because of misunderstandings she has always feared to be an embarrassment to her family which is one of the reasons why she covers her scar with the veil and why she finds so much happiness and peace from making her jewellery.Arthur is so different to how we last saw him, he is a large, brooding, self conscious, vulnerable, tender, sensual, ruggedly handsome and he has quite the foul mouth Plus since his return he has cast off the proper gentleman etiquette and has thrown himself into his farm.there really is nothing funnier and, may I say sexier than a gorgeous man running around after piglet s I found he also has a real darkness about him, he appears locked in to his self loathing thoughts and it is only the pure, kind, caring and loving heart of Frances that really makes him see past the darkness and into the light.This is an enchanting story about second chances, about over coming great inner conflict to find your happily ever after The romance between Frances and Author sizzles right from the off well its not surprising seeing as when she first sees him again, while he was not wearing a great deal and left little to the imagination There is a spark between them that ignites into somethe longer they are around one and other, and when they kiss.my, oh my The air fizzles with lust and romance, it is well worth the wait, I can tell you Their relationship develops in a very natural way and it is that what readers can relate to and will fall in love with after all who hasn t shared a cake at a picnic with a loved one Utterly captivating An exquisite, beautifully written story of heart felt love that will leave the reader with enchanted and yet again proves what an exceptional writer Ms Fletcher is and worth her weight in gold

    The Viscount s Veiled Lady is the third and final book in the Whitby Weddings series by author Jenni Fletcher Although this story can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend the entire series based in the town of Whitby Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire, northern England rich in history If you ve already ready book two in this series, then you ve already met Arthur Amberton, Viscount Scorborough Arthur was definitely an interesting character in the second book After fighting with The Viscount s Veiled Lady is the third and final book in the Whitby Weddings series by author Jenni Fletcher Although this story can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend the entire series based in the town of Whitby Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire, northern England rich in history If you ve already ready book two in this series, then you ve already met Arthur Amberton, Viscount Scorborough Arthur was definitely an interesting character in the second book After fighting with his father over a forced engagement he mysteriously disappeared for nine months with everyone assuming he was dead He returned at the end of book two very much alive This story picks up from book two with Arthur living and working on a farm away from society and avoiding the responsibility of his title.Frances Webster is the younger sister of the woman Arthur was secretly engaged to six years ago before his disappearance After an accident at 18 that has scarred the one side of her face and ended her engagement she has chosen to hide behind a veil She assumes her family is embarrassed by her scarring and so she hides from the world creating and selling her handmade jewelry made of Whitby Jet I absolutely adored Frances and Arthur from the very beginning They were two extremely lovable people who are hiding from the world, in desperate need of someone to help them see a way back to life As these two meet again they form a friendship and gradually start to trust and reveal their fears and insecurities with each other It was wonderful to see them support each other and help each other gain their self confidence back and start to have feeling for each other Although their path to HEA is not completely smooth, their romance was well written and beautifully done This was an absolutely perfect story to end this series From the wonderful secondary characters, the fabulous storyline, the fascinating setting of Whitby, to a couple who captured my heart, it was a story I just couldn t put down It was great to see a glimpse of Ianthe Robert from the first book and I loved how Violet and Lance Arthur s twin younger brother from the second book played a major role in this story as well Such a fascinating city Whitby and a wonderful series that I highly recommend
