After five years away, Lady Eliza Cartwick isn’t relishing returning to the whirl of the London season. But the young widow knows to ensure the best future for herself and her young daughter, Rosa, she must remarry. If only Lord Evanston, the dashing rogue who has haunted her dreams since she was sixteen, didn’t insist on distracting her with his searing looks and lingering touches at the most inconvenient times...

Thomas, Lord Evanston, has wanted Eliza since her engagement ball all those years ago. His best friend’s sister has constantly been out of reach . . . until now. The forbidden has always tempted him, but when Thomas realizes he wants the object of his fantasies for far more than a dalliance, he must convince her that he’s not just a rake; he’s a viscount who’s worth the wait.

Best friend's sister? Historical style? Heck yeah! Admittedly, I'm not the knowledgeable when it comes to historical romance. Seriously, never ask me the difference between Victorian and Regency. However, put something like this in front of me and I'll love you forever. All joking aside, I'm not too versed in the different troupes that are common in historical romance so when I see a troupe that I adore in contemporary romance, I'm all for it. I loved the first book in Marie Tremayne's Reluctant Brides series and when I got The Viscount Can Wait, I had to read it immediately. And I fell in love. From the characters to the author's voice, I was all in. I don't have very many favorite historical romance authors, but Marie Tremayne is quickly becoming one of them. Now I'm on pins and needles waiting for the next book in the series.

Marie Tremayne graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in English Language and Literature. While there, a copy of Pride and Prejudice ended up changing her life. She decided to study the great books of the Regency and Victorian eras, and now enjoys writing her own tales set in the historical period she loves. Marie lives with her family in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
