Secrets. Lies. And a second chance at love...
Torn from the only man she'd ever loved by a tragic secret, Mara Miller has traveled a long and difficult road. From poverty and the workhouses, she's finally made a life for herself as the owner of a small haberdashery in London. With her companion, Big B, an African slave she'd helped escape from a Brazilian slaver, she's made a fresh start. But when the past walks into her shop-in the form of the ever-handsome Roarke Garrott, Viscount Eversleigh-Mara feels her whole world crash to her feet. Thrust back into a web of lies, deceit, and manipulation, Mara is forced to face the one man she'd sworn to forget.
For the past seven years, Roarke had sequestered himself in India to mourn Mara's death. Vowing to move on and put the past behind him, he returns to London, only to find himself gazing into those beautiful green eyes he believed he'd never see again. Now he's found her-alive and trying to deny who she was. A million feelings wash over him. Joy. Fury. Heartbreak. He would have the truth from her-of where she'd gone, and why-but when trouble from the past finds Mara and Big B, the truth becomes secondary to saving Mara's life. After just learning that the woman he'd loved is alive, Roarke is not about to lose her again...

This was a great story featuring action, intrigue, and sizzling romance! Given a second chance with the woman he thought was dead, Roarke is at first furious and then smitten all over again as he tries to find out the truth behind Mara's disappearance. While Mara regrets deceiving Roarke for all these years, the reasons for her leaving are still valid today. Is it fair to cause his family scandal, just so they can be together? With a greedy and bloodthirsty criminal out for revenge, Mara and Roarke may have to work together just to stay alive. While it may have been too ambitious to have characters traveling throughout the English countryside and to the Continent, the plot was action-packed and eventually all the threads of the story came together in a happy ending. Except, of course, for the teaser ending leading into the next book. I'm looking forward to reading what happens to some of the characters we have come to know so far in the series.
This is a story of two people lost to each other but then reunited again. Not a happy reunion to be sure since one thought the other dead. Mara Miller was a working girl, who had accomplished more in her life than she ever thought by owning a haberdashery in London. Having fled from a horrible time, she tried to put the past behind. But as the past has a way or rearing it's head, Roake Garrott, Viscount Eversleigh, walks into Mara's shop one day. Roarke had thought Mara dead and had finally tried to move on with his life. The shock for them both turned their world upside down and thus began their journey. This is a story of heartbreak, lost love, secrets held and a search for the truth before the past comes crashing down. You will be caught up in this story, hoping that the two can find each other again and holding your breath until the end. This is a great second book in the Ways of Love Series can but be read as a standalone. Tabetha Waite will be a name to watch for in the future!
Where the Viscount Met His Match (Ways of Love Book 2) by Tabetha Waite is a Regency Romance by this amazing and masterful author. While, book 2, it can be read as a stand alone. I absolutely love Mara Miller, which we met in book 1, and Roarke Garrott, Viscount Eversleigh, the love of Mara's life, but she lost him several years prior due to a tragic event that forced Mara to fake her own death. A story filled with a web of lies, deceit, manipulation, sacrifice and so much more. Now, he's walked back into her life. I found these characters to be tortured souls, torn apart by a huge secret then thrust back together again, by unseen circumstances, to be heart a wrenching, engaging and very enjoyable read. The secondary characters are enjoyable and help move the story along. The plot is intriguing, very interesting and captivating. The storyline flows seamlessly and is well executed, in my humble opinion. A story of love, grief, secrets, a tragic kidnapping, deceit, mental illness and second chances at finding a HEA. The twists and turns were magnificent and well done to deliver a most fantastic Regency Romance. A bit of mystery, suspense and the romance, was absolutely enticing and delightful to read. Ms. Waite, captured my attention and held me glued to the pages of this gripping and brilliantly written story. This is Ms. Waite's second novel but she writes like a master, fully engaging her readers with characterizations, her descriptions, her detail to research, and the Era she's writing. Just stunning and very well written! Fast paced with page turning mystery and suspense. The romance to me was wonderful, seeming realistic and believable. A powerful, yet sweet romance with twists and turns. I look forward to reading more, in this fascinating series! WHERE THE VISCOUNT MET HIS MATCH ends with the reader learning some of Roarke's sister's story, which just made me want more. A must read Regency Romance by an upcoming and rising author, Tabetha Waite! A definite keeper. I can see me reading this story and book 1, over again. A true treasure! Well done, Tabetha Waite! ! I received a complimentary copy, however, all opinions are my own. Rating: 5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR
