I have received a free e-copy of the book Make a Viscount Beg by Tammy Andresen to review.
Here is the book blurb.
An unrepentant rogue and a desperate lady…
The Viscount of Averstone had made a bet that he would collect a kiss from Lady Adelaide Ducat. Chase didn’t have much honor, but when it came to chasing skirts, he kept his word. Besides, he’d learned long ago that had little else to offer a woman except for a few stolen kisses. But the longer he pursues the little minx, the more he can see that her brave façade hides real danger. Can he leave her to face it alone?
Lady Adelaide Ducat hated the Viscount of Averstone with a passion that sang in her blood. The man was a wretch, a rake, a rogue, and so annoying that she’d like to… well, she desperately wanted to… she ought to….kiss him until he begged for mercy. Wait. That wasn’t right. She’s got bigger problems to worry about, like what her scheming mother was planning or how she’s going to care for her dying father. She needs a husband to help her not a rogue who would only distract. So why can’t she stop thinking about how good his lips would taste?
Can a single kiss change their minds forever?
Make a Viscount Beg is the final book in the How to Reform a Rake series featuring the Ducat sisters, but also works well as a stand-alone read too.
However I do recommend that you read the introductory “How to Reform a Rake” novella first, especially as it is available for free. It helps put later stories into context.
The story begins with Lady Adelaide Ducat telling Lord Charles Averstone (Chase) that she has no intention of ever kissing him. But he is still intent on collecting the kiss that he had bet on. Who will outmanoeuvre whom? And is there yet more danger pending?
Make a Viscount Beg is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.29 in Kindle format. Another nice short romantic read, which although part of a series, works fine as a stand-alone read too. And it brings the series to a satisfactory conclusion with an unexpected ending.

About the author
USA Today Bestselling Author, Tammy Andresen lives with her husband and three children just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up on the Seacoast of Maine, where she spent countless days dreaming up stories in blueberry fields and among the scrub pines that line the coast. Her mother loved to spin a yarn and Tammy filled many hours listening to her mother retell the classics. It was inevitable that at the age of 18, she headed off to Simmons College, where she studied English literature and education. She never left Massachusetts but some of her heart still resides in Maine and her family visits often.
