In Love with the Viscount

Book #3 in The American Heiress Trilogy
Release date: December 2004

From USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes a breathtaking historical romance trilogy set during the Gilded Age, featuring three American sisters who set sail for London to capture aristocratic husbands. Perfect for fans of Bridgerton and Downton Abbey.

Could this love nonsense really be worth the trouble?

To Adele Wilson the answer is clear: of course not. She has seen her two sisters dragged through scandal and heartbreak (not to mention every ballroom in London) to find the husbands of their dreams. And that’s why she said yes to the first amiable British lord who requested her hand. And why shouldn’t she marry him? He is kind, honest, and not sentimental in the least.

Unlike his wilder, more mysterious cousin Damien Renshaw, Viscount Alcester. Ignoring Damien altogether would be easy if he were the sort of dishonorable man intent on seducing his cousin’s betrothed. But he is clearly trying to resist her, and his suddenly proper behavior only makes him more tempting to the usually well-behaved Adele. Indeed, Damien seems to be bringing out another side of Adele, a heady, passionate, exhilarating side. It seems that fate is contriving to teach her — against her best intentions — exactly what this love nonsense is all about …

“If you haven’t been reading Julianne MacLean, you haven’t been reading romance.” Bestselling author, Karen Hawkins
