Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Only a Viscount Will Do' by Tamara Gill is book Three in the "To Marry a Rogue" series. This is the story of Lady Alice Worthingham and Callum Edwards, Viscount Arndel. I have read the other books in this series (all great books!!) but feel this can easily be a standalone book.
Callum inherited the estate and Title of Viscount Arndel from his cousin when he past. But Callum quickly learned there was an outstanding debt from a Moneylender that his cousin has ...and now the moneylender is expecti
A reluctant highwayman and his erstwhile victim.

When Lady Alice Worthingham and her mother are robbed by a highwayman, Alice doesn't play the meek and mild victim. The action that follows is highly unorthodox and the Surrey Bandit aka the Viscount, Lord Callum Arundel has unknowingly met his match!
I liked Lady Alice, I liked Lord Callum.
I just wasn't drawn into their sphere in the way I wanted to be. Sure the dramatic potential was all here. The poor relation who became a viscount, blackmailed i
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.

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**

A feisty lady meets a charming highwayman and the chemistry is explosive!

Callum isn't your average viscount. He wasn't raised in the titled life that he's come into. But along with the estate, he has inherited his cousin's excessive debt. A debt that can only be paid with stolen jewels from the wealthy citizens that Callum is supposed to be friends and neighbors with. To keep his daughter safe and pay off the debt, he

Ugh. Seeing as it's been almost a year since I've picked up this novel (apparently I started this one on my birthday last year--ha!), I think it's finally time I dnf'd this one. I don't really remember any specifics, but I do remember that I found the plot to be very slow paced and that I didn't connect with the characters AT ALL. I am sooo disappointed that this one was a flop because it has one of the hottest HR covers I've come across--her hand gripping him, his mouth on her, her ne

I truly enjoyed this book. The story of a newly titled Viscount who is forced to become a highwayman in order to protect his daughter. When one of the people he steals from is the Duchess of Penworth and her daughter Lady Alice he gets himself into some trouble. Not happy with just taking the much needed brooch he tries to steal a kiss from Alice as well...
Lady Alice has a very unusual personality. She does not follow the norm of the ton. In fact she does the complete opposite. Once she figures
Only a Viscount Will Do (To Marry a Rogue) by Tamara Gill is entertaining and explosive. #3 in this exciting series, but can be read as a stand alone.

Lady Alice Worthingham, is sassy, unpredictable and never follows the rules of society. Callum Edwards, Viscount Arndel, is proud, charming and forced into the life of a highwayman, in order to protect his young daughter. There is much to recommend this story!
A mixture of danger, romance, adventure, mystery, suspense, a bit of humor and the chemist

I fell in love. Alice was more than a lady. She had heart. She was adventurous, sassy, beautiful and don’t get on her bad side. Something that the Surrey Bandit did and in the process, he met his match. Lady Alice was not the typical lady of her time. She was so much more. She was a very active participant in her world, lady like or not. I found that at times she may have played a little too close to the flame. She may or may not have be ready to be burned but the heat that arose was something t ...more

I received this from Netgalley/ Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This is book 3 in a new series by Tamara Gill. In this book we meet the third sister Alice Worthingham. She loves helping the poor. The viscount is a thief but only because he is being blackmailed into it. They find romance and just love each other. I enjoyed the story a great deal and just couldn't put it down. I want the next one already!

I really wanted to like this book but I couldn't get past the first few chapters, enjoyed the second book of the series more.

I will come back to this book one day & try again.

A shady moneylender informs Callum that he must payback the eighteen thousand pounds his cousin, Robert, still owed upon his death. To do so, Callum is forced to steal jewels and deliver them to the moneylender under the guise of The Surrey Bandit. His final score after two years is to steal from his neighbors, the Worthingham’s.

This is my first book to have read by Tamara Gill and even though this is book three in the (To Marry a Rogue) series it can be read as a standalone. As soon as I started reading this story I loved her style of writing so much that I read this book in one sitting. Im a big fan of historical romance and I especially love it when the heroine is the one who comes in and saves the day and Lady Alice Worthingham was an amazingly strong woman with a clever mind that never lets anyone get one up on her ...more
I found this book while poking around on netgalley. Tamara Gill is an author I haven’t read before, but the cover caught my eye and the blurb sounded fun and different. A hero that is moonlighting as a highwayman? Fabulous! I was excited to receive an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

And, as the three-star review indicates, I liked it. For the most part, it works well as a standalone novel, which is fortunate since I did not realize it is the third book in the series. The other two

This was the first book I read by Tamara Gill but I am very impressed with her writing. I love historical fiction books, especially when the author is so great with her descriptions that I feel I was transported back into that time. I started this book in the morning and literally did not want to put it down until it was completed. The author just pulls in the reader and holds their attention captive the entire time; I cannot wait to read the next book.

This follows the story of Lady Alice and he

Lord Callum Arndel inherited the title of Viscount but instead of living the life of a Viscount he's turned to highway robbery. Dubbed the Surrey Bandit he has to settle the debts collected by his late cousin. His daughters life is in jeopardy.
On the last robbery his last victim happens to be his neighbour of all people - Lady Alicia! The attraction is instant even though he's behind a mask. He can't help but fantasize what it would be like to kiss her

What is there NOT to love about this book? It has the voice of a contemporary, set in Regency England. I know, it sounds confusing but read the book and you will see what I mean. Our heroine, Alice has no problem shoting a gun, wearing men’s clothes and all around being very unconventional. I really liked her from the beginning. The start of the book was funny. She didn’t back down with Surrey Bandit, even when she found out it was Callum.

Callum, in the beginning, is very much the tease. I loved

All kinds of thrills and fun with this one! I was hooked from the start and couldn't put it down. I loved the chemistry between them because sparks flew from across the room.

Lady Alice is a great heroine. She is strong, innovative and has a heart of gold. It was wonderful to see how she really cared about others and did all she could to make their lives better.

Who knew that while unlikely highwayman Callum was busy stealing a costly and irreplaceable brooch belonging to Lady Alice's mother, that the unconventional Lady Alice's kissable lips would be, in return, stealing his heart? And, thus began a man's journey to save his daughter by pilfering jewels from his own friends while falling for a feisty lady and fearing, at the same time, that she will identify and out him as the perpetrator of the robberies.

Lady Alice Worthington is the sister of a Duke and a heiress. She is also a fiercely independent young lady who feels it's her duty to help those less fortunate.
This is quite the adventure. Our poor hero is doing his best against all the odds , and our heroine is clever

This was a nice installment full of thick dialogue, proper vibes and a whole lot of undertones. This was my first time reading anything of this author's, and I thought the writing style was pretty cool. I liked the major build up to the main plot line, but mostly I enjoyed how the whole book was mainly filled with dialogue; wittiness, the dance of words, drama that never goes beyond inappropriate words you can get away with
