The Viscount Who Lived Down the Lane: Rhymes With Love
Pierson, Viscount Wakefield returns from a tour of duty in Spain a damaged, broken man. With a wounded leg, a dead friend, and many vivid memories of battle, Wakefield goes into hiding, consoling himself with alcohol. When Louisa Tempest arrives in Mayfair with her twin sister, Lavinia, she expects to enjoy the Season, though she resolves never to marry. When her almost-feral cat, Hannibal, accidentally runs through Wakefield’s front door, Louisa views his disorganized dwelling as a challenge. As Louisa improves Wakefield’s living quarters, she improves him, and eventually brings him out of hiding and into society.
The Viscount Who Lived Down The Lane is a humorous tale from Elizabeth Boyle’s Rhymes with Love series. The interactions between Viscount Wakefield and the characters who want to see him recover range from the serious to the hilarious. “Setting things to rights” is a constant theme throughout the book, and everything is happily resolved at the end. Even Hannibal the cat has enough presence to be a memorable character. Boyle crafts a sweet, beautiful love story that no romance junkie will be able to put down.
