Overview

The Viscount's Betrothal (Harlequin Historical #982) by Louise Allen



Miss Decima Ross knows for a fact that her overbearing family regularly remind themselves to "marry off poor dear Dessy." But who would ever want a graceless, freckled beanpole like herself?

Hearing that she is once more to be paraded in front of an eligible gentleman, Decima hurriedly leaves her brother's house. And encounters Adam Grantham, Viscount Weston, the first man she's ever met who's tall enough to sweep her off her feet…literally! Could such a handsome rake really find her attractive?

About the Author

Louise Allen has been immersing herself in history, real and fictional, for as long as she can remember, and her first attempt at historical fiction at the age of eight was three pages of improbable medieval drama set in the local castle. Some considerable time later she joined forces with a friend and became one half of the writing partnership Francesca Shaw--what began as a decidedly tipsy storytelling session in a Burgundian vineyard led on to a series of Historical Romances, all but one set in the Regency period.

Career changes meant that the partnership had to end and Louise now writes about her favorite historical period alone--which means she can keep all her gorgeous heroes to herself.

She lives in England in a village in Bedfordshire with her long-suffering husband who is not only a wonderful cook, but also the perfect inspiration for every romantic hero imaginable. All their spare time is spent at their Norfolk cottage on the coast where, although they have no pets, they are permitted to share the garden with a very bossy pheasant called Percy.

With a degree in geography and archaeology, Louise finds landscapes and places are a powerful influence on her writing, and ideas for plots and characters often arise directly out of locations. Venice, Burgundy, the Hertfordshire and Norfolk countryside, the Greek islands--all have proved inspirational.

Louise writes in her head until the story can't be contained any longer and has to get out and onto paper, an unpredictable process as the hero and heroine are quite likely to take over and ruin all her pathetic attempts to keep to any sort of plan. She consoles herself with the thought that it is, after all, their story.
