I really struggled to put it down, and only didn't finish it in one sitting since I knew I'd forget what I wanted to say in the review.
It redeemed the series for me slightly after the disappointment of. Things I liked about this one:- - The story is great. A lonely woman and a lonely man find each other and love. Great stuff. Outwardly, she has limited self-confidence, but inwardly she knows herself, and understands her her choices, while limited, are something she can control a little. She is a wonderful heroine, ignorant of the ways of Society and too true to herself to conform, even though she does try. She is who she is.
When we first meet him he has been trying to conform to both his father's demands and Society's expectations, but he is essentially a soldier, used to the deprivations of war, the command of men and confrontations with death. He despises Society and his one fault is to paint everyone in it with the same brush. I think he's a wonderful hero, and although I don't much like how he treats the heroine I can understand it perfectly - as someone with practically no female influence in his life, he has no idea how they tick or how to go about talking, courting or being with them.
I liked this a lot. So many HRs include attractive heroines who don't understand their own attractiveness and it makes a wonderful change to twist the hero this way. After all his looks would have meant nothing to his comrades in the army, and his wealth and title is newly acquired. Yes, they kept a lot from each other, but the Misunderstanding was not one which was particularly obvious, and, honestly, how long does it actually take for a couple to become completely honest with each other? Months, years? Some never do. It just worked for me. Things I didn't like so much: - We don't really get to understand the hero's immediate attraction to the heroine.
I cae understand lust etc, but it's never explained, not even as something which the hero doesn't understand in himself. Was it her lack of pretention, her physical attributes, or the way she didn't conform to Society's expectations? You never know and that bugged me. I mean, you know what she looks like, more-or-less, but not what attractive him to her - I couldn't understand why the hero deserted the heroine in the way he did. This could have been resolved in a better way. They lived in a country pile, couldn't he have just moved to a different wing?
Going off in the way he did seemed out of character to me, irresponsible when his sense of duty and responsibility are so well-defined. Now, I could understand why he didn't explain anything to her. Heaven knows, sometimes my husband seems to think that I can read his mind or communicate through telepathy, but removing himself from her so completely just didn't really work for me, not when he completely understood what the risk was. The cover is totally wrong - the cover girl is super-attractive and even her hair is brushed, and the cover-boy, whilst pretty dishy, doesn't look "Regency" at all.
It's a minor thing, but annoys me. So, despite these minor annoyances, a 5 star read for me. I honestly couldn't put it down, and loved the hero and heroine, and the story. View all 3 comments.

The hero and heroine meet in an inauspicious manner. She trips because of mean girls and falls on him, and he thinks it's a plot to snare him in marriage. He's mean to her, she hates him. But things are not always as they seem. The hero's a big jerk through much of the first part of this story, but he doesn't maintain his jerkiness TOO long. The continuing mystery about the man hanged for treason and murder comes in only late in the story, but it does play a powerful part. I liked the heroine q The hero and heroine meet in an inauspicious manner. I liked the heroine quite a bit, though sometimes her spur-of-the-moment behavior made me want to swat her.
The hero had his swat-worthy moments too. Sometimes I think I enjoy those stories a bit more, when the characters act like real people who do stupid things.
The Viscount and the Virgin by Annie Burrows
I often want to swat certain of my relatives But it all comes out nicely in the end. Jul 01, Lisa rated it it was ok Shelves: own , kindle-baby , , romance. Being in possession of a low-level hangover I was after reading something light and undemanding, this book is nothing if not that. A romance in which every obstacle to the main couple's happiness is purely miscommunication which gets resolved in the final pages leaving them to their happy-ever-after, this was inoffensive enough stuff, although I think it would have been a much better story had Imogen told everyone around her to sod off and gone off on her own instead I'm probably not really th Being in possession of a low-level hangover I was after reading something light and undemanding, this book is nothing if not that.
I'm probably not really the audience for romance novels in that case, am I?! View 2 comments. I really got into this story. Finished reading at 3am, in one sitting. Lovely story. The Viscount and the Virgin is my favorite so far of the Silk and Scandal series.
With her tendency to throw herself head-long into situations, she finds herself causing all sorts of havoc without lifting a finger. Not every hero can be an alpha but I was annoyed with his constant second-guessing and the reiteration of his shortcomings. It is a welcome addition to the Silk and Scandals series from Harlequin.
Feb 13, Linda Sims rated it really liked it. Fifth book in the series featuring Imogen Hebden and Viscount Mildenhall. Imogen is in London for a season to find a husband. Her circumstances have drastically altered and without the resources of her aunt and uncle she'd be homeless and without money.

One of her stepbrothers comes to london and promises to get his friend Monty to introduce Imogen to suitable young men, just so long as they're not at all like the despicable Viscount Mildenhall who has made it very clear what he thinks of her. This is part of a series of books with an underlying who done it plot. But each book features a different couple, so you could read it as a stand alone IMO. This is a light romantic read with very engaging characters. I really enjoyed it. Harlequin Regency silk and scandal series.
Story about the sins of the father 20 years prior gypsy curse being visited on their children. Apr 26, Vana rated it liked it. An entertaining enough read for a rainy day, so why just the three stars. It was one of those plot's based on miscommunication, only to be resolved at the very end.
My least favourite kind of plot, Grrr, it only serves to be irritating. The secondary characters were more interesting. Monty's twin brothers were amusing and Imogen's gypsy brother Stephen added a little darkness to the plot. I did not feel that the sub plot of their parents demise was really fully resolved and Imogen's relationsh An entertaining enough read for a rainy day, so why just the three stars.
I did not feel that the sub plot of their parents demise was really fully resolved and Imogen's relationship with her brother Stephen was left hanging in mid air. This book could have been so much more. It's A Keeper A klutzy miss keeps running into a Viscount who arrogantly assumes she trying to trap him into marriage. Miserable with her circumstances, she longs for her Independence.
A visit from a step- brother leads to another encounter with the Viscount, again not the best evening she's ever had. Over time their relationship starts to change and the man she thought was lost comes back. A charming love story of mistaken identity and acceptance. May 12, Maria rated it it was amazing Shelves: novels. Don't trust the summary or the cover , it's really not very accurate.
And it turned out to be much more interesting, one of my favorites so far in the series. She is struggling in society because of that past scandal involving her parents, and her natural clumsiness doesn't help. I found it very easy to identify with her - her hair never stays where it's supposed to, her clothes get wrinkled or stained before she even arrives at a ball, and she has ideas. And she desperately needs affection after pretty much everyone she ever cared about pushed her and her needs into the background. Imogen - or Midge - doesn't really want a husband, she's only trying to fit into society to please her aunt and uncle who have taken it onto themselves to find her a good match.
She'd rather stay on the shelf and become a governess somewhere Especially once she meets an obnoxious viscount who could damage her reputation even more. They take an instant dislike to each other. But what they don't know is that they actually share more than they think. I don't think it's a huge spoiler to reveal that they get married, and most of the book actually happens after the wedding. Lots of misunderstandings, insecurities and troublesome family members make it hard for them to find their happiness. Probably more so because both characters are quite likable and realistic, with enough flaws that we identify with them and find it believable that they would have trouble communicating.
We also find out more about the big Scandal and its repercussions, through what Imogen found out about it from her mother. I can't wait to get to the last book and read his story Taken by the Wicked Rake. Mar 31, Mnms rated it really liked it. A really good and touching story, with appealing characters. This story follows Imogen - a lively, vivacious girl who is much more comfortable running wild outdoors than she is sewing in the drawing room.
She has a kind, loving heart and loves to look after those around her. Upon the death of her mother, then her step-father, Imogen has been taken in by a kindly aunt who wishes to see her happily married. Imogen is sent off on her first London season quite late, at 27 years of age , and the poor girl is like a fish out of water. Due to a scandal surround This story follows Imogen - a lively, vivacious girl who is much more comfortable running wild outdoors than she is sewing in the drawing room.
Due to a scandal surrounding her mother, Imogen has to be on her best behaviour at all times lest gossip should ruin her reputation, but it is not long before her lack of lady-like accomplishments gets her into trouble. Monty is a second son whose elder brother has just died. Monty is now forced to continue the family business even though he would prefer to have remained in the army. At a ball Imogen accidentally knocks a glass of wine all over Monty, which he interprets as her way to get an introduction with the season's eligible bachelor.
He is sick of women chasing him like a dog with a bone so, to make an example of her, he spurns the poor girl. Unfortunately for Monty, he then finds himself taking quite a fancy to her. This is a very enjoyable story. The main characters are strong and likeable.

They are linked by the fact that neither of them fits into the society they have been thrown amongst.

Feb 19, Crystal rated it it was ok. Easily my least favorite of the Silk and Scandal series, which is quite good overall. The hero begins the story as a complete jerk, and doesn't make it much farther than well-meaning idiot by the end. The heroine seems like she could have been fun, but she's so easily beaten down and confused that it's hard to appreciate her wit and sense of adventure.
The both of them spend so much time misunderstanding each other and doing irrational things that it's more than a bit annoying when everything is Easily my least favorite of the Silk and Scandal series, which is quite good overall. This was the book where I started skimming them. I know it's a Harlequin Historical, and I shouldn't have expected too much heat, but sheesh. Change it up a little! Definitely whetted my appetite for book 8! And it's short enough and has enough movement on the series' overarching mystery that I didn't feel I had wasted my time on it.

Monty, on the other hand, after realizing his mistake after guessing the truth about Midge's character thought he could make up for his short-comings and eventually stay true to himself. He is in love with his wife but after assuming her to be in love with someone else, Monty choose not to lay his heart at her feet. Their story continues with a whirlpool of other assumptions which could have been solved if they explained to the other what is what. I enjoyed their story although it was bit fast but then again with Midge and Monty they do need a fast pace.
I don't often pay attention to other characters but I was drawn to Rick, Midge's step-brother, and I find myself hoping he had his own story. And of course the gypsy half-brother Stephen who in my mind is the mysterious and dark stranger. There's something more about him that meets the eye and again I wished he had a story of his own.

The Smuggler and the Society Bride
Rating: 3. Most of my favorite historical romance novels end up at 4 stars. This book had so much potential. I loved Midge and Monty and I wanted more than what I got from them in this book. I was looking for that point in the novel that is gut-wrenching and you are not sure how they will get through to their own Happily Ever After.
It was weak at best. Monty didn't have any misconceptions on Midge -they were all from her side. To add insult to injury, as many other reviewers have mentioned, the love scenes were almost non existent. The passion and lead up was pretty good and then Anne Burrows leaves you hanging. The book is called the Viscount and the Virgin - I expected at least 1 steamy love scene when she loses her virginity!
Mar 13, Rosa C. Although the characters could have been developed to produce an engaging story, this book was boring, colorless and banal. The main plot line is the miscommunication between the married couple. The author describes at length every little detail of the heroine's fears and anxieties, adding nothing to the story apart from the sense that the girl is a nitwit.
It does, however, succeeds on leaving the reader with a permanently frustrated feeling about what's happening. The love scenes are described in Although the characters could have been developed to produce an engaging story, this book was boring, colorless and banal. The love scenes are described in short paragraphs. You would expect that a book titled "The Viscount and the Virgin" would have a better deflowering scene than this one: "When he made them one flesh, she felt complete for the first time in her life Mar 10, Mandy rated it really liked it Shelves: recent-reads , get-it , find-the-next-one.

Only a few things made me give it four stars instead of No super steamy scenes, most were run through quickly without the details I am used to in a romance novel. It's not a horrible thing though, since the story itself was good. I hate it when it's obvious the main purpose of the story are the sex scenes so the book is fine in that department but I do like them when they are more d I enjoyed this book a lot!
