Title: Only a Viscount Will Do by Tamara Gill

This is the third story in this great Regency romance series about the Worthingham sisters. This story features Lady Alice Worthingham as the main female character – though her younger sister also has significant roles to play in the ensuing adventure. It starts with blackmail before moving on to a highway robbery, an investigation and revenge with romance sprinkled liberally throughout.
Callum Edwards, Viscount Arndel, inherited the horrendous debts along with the title and is blackmailed into repaying it by stealing jewels to order or risk the moneylender harming Callum’s much loved young daughter. He’s hating what he has to do but has no idea how to protect his daughter other than following their demands. Lady Alice is a brilliant, strong character, a determined young lady who gets her young sister involved in her escapades!
The story is well paced, with plenty of mystery, action, suspense and romance to keep the reader entertained. The characters are well developed and there are surprises along the way. For anyone who enjoys historical romantic suspense, this – and the earlier two books in this series – should certainly be ones to look out for!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Lady Alice Worthingham never conforms to Society’s norms. Ever. She loves adventure, new experiences, and approaches life with a sassy attitude Society can take or leave. But even for her, robbery by a highwayman is a bit much.
Lord Arndel, Lady Alice’s neighbor, is playing a dangerous game—acting the proper viscount by day and the Surrey Bandit by night. And to brazenly steal from the woman who’s captured his attention is no mean feat, or the wisest of moves.
When Lady Alice learns the truth, the viscount finds that when a well-bred woman seeks revenge, she’ll make a gentleman thief pay for his crimes with everything…including his heart.
