Historical Fiction

Vying for the Viscount by Kristin Ann Hunter. A Review.

For Hudson, the newly titled Viscount Stildon, moving to England from India where he was born and raised was already an arduous enough endeavor. When he learns the fate of the racing empire he inherited along with his title depends upon him getting in the good graces of another stable owner, he’s even more at a loss.

The stable at the neighboring estate has been Miss Bianca Snowley’s refuge for years, and when a strange man appears to be stealing the horses, she jumps to their protection without a second thought. Upon learning Hudson is actually the new owner, she can’t help but be intrigued by the area’s newest eligible bachelor.

Any thought of romance is quickly set aside, however, when Hudson proposes they work together to secure suitable spouses for each other. As their friendship grows, Hudson and Bianca begin to reconsider what they truly want in life. But will societal expectations and the weight of their responsibilities keep them from pursuing their true desires?

My Thoughts

From the first pages of this book I loved Hudson as his determination to do just right to a role he had been trained for all his life but had no idea on how to go about it. His fish out of water moments, his beautiful heart. It was nice to see him grow into his role.
Bianca was definitely different too. Coming from a family where she was treated as just an addition, I love that she was still kindhearted. Her love for horses and their first meeting had me laughing out loud.
I loved how the author took them through a journey of faith and learning to trust God with everything dear to them.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All opinions expressed are solely mine
