Love begets madness. Viscount Locksley watched it happen to his father after his cherished wife’s death. But when his sire arranges to marry flame-haired fortune hunter Portia Gadstone, Locke is compelled to take drastic measures to stop the stunning beauty from taking advantage of the marquess. A marriage of mutual pleasure could be convenient, indeed . . . as long as inconvenient feelings don’t interfere.

Desperation forced Portia to agree to marry a madman. The arrangement will offer the protection she needs. Or so she believes until the marquess’s distractingly handsome son peruses the fine print . . .and takes his father’s place!

Now the sedate—and, more importantly, secure—union Portia planned has been tossed in favor of one simmering with wicked temptation and potential heartbreak. Because as she begins to fall for her devilishly seductive husband, her dark secrets surface and threaten to ruin them both—unless Locke is willing to risk all and open his heart to love.

About the Author

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. When she read a romance novel, she not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She’s been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA’s prestigious RITA®. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.

How does Lorraine Heath write so many wonderful books without them ever being the same as something you’ve read before? What a wonderful author! This book is now one of my favorites. Killian St. John, Viscount Locksley, better known as Locke is determined that when he eventually weds, it will never be for love as he watched his father grieve for his mother his entire life. Unknown to him, his father has been corresponding with a woman in London, Portia Gladstone, to become his wife since Locke refuses to marry. He is surprised when the woman who arrives is young and lovely. Locke believes she is the sort he could never love so agrees to marry her, which was always his father’s plan. As she starts cleaning the unused rooms and making Havisham Hall a lovely home again, he begins to have feelings for her, other than the lust he felt on first sight. But she has secrets that she doesn’t want him to know, and a trip to London reveals many of them. This story has twists, secrets and a view into some of the horrors that occurred in that time. This is a marvelous book and I do not want to spoil any of it for you. Of course, it ends with a lovely HEA! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

Lorraine Heath's writing is truly captivating. She takes her readers on an emotional rollercoaster that will have you laughing, screaming, crying and sighing all throughout the story. In The Viscount and the Vixen, Portia believed that she found true love and her happily ever after but instead she finds herself in a dire situation. She answers an advertisement placed by the Marquis of Marsden hoping to find peace and security. Instead she finds Viscount Locksley who is protective of his father and thwarts her plans. Locke plans to put a halt to Portia's plans but one kiss on the terrace shows him the passion that could exist between them. He marries her instead. Both vow to never love but feelings change with the time spent together. Views change but secrets can destroy what they are building.
