3.5/5 stars.

I received this book from Netgalley and Montlake Publishers for an honest review. This does not in any way affect my opinion of the book and it's characters.

Overall I enjoyed this book; the writing is solid, the romance and chemistry between the characters palpable, the plot while cliche and somewhat tried and tested, doesn't really get on my nerves much. As we know, I don't enjoy the plot's that involve a scheming ex-mistress/mother/someone but while this does have that, it didn't

I loved Emily and Malcolm's story!

Since an accident that scarred her face, Emily has kept out of the social scene. It also doesn't help that she has aways been very shy. With the brother's upcoming wedding, she know that she must interact with all the guests. but is not looking forward to it.

Malcolm has been asked by Emily's brother to watch over her during the house party before and after the wedding. Having known Emily since she was a child, he decides to take it a step further. He wants to pr

A wonderful second story by Christina Britton that tugged at my heart with the story of a heroine who is scarred physically and a hero who has emotional scars deep down. Emily has lived her life away from society due to the scars on her face to avoid the censure she knows she will find. When her brother, who has almost suffocated her by his constant protection gets married, she is out away from her comfort zone. Her brother asks his friend Malcolm to watch out after. They have actually known eac ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. The two main characters were very engaging. Emily has issues due to an earlier accident and was painfully shy. Malcolm, Viscount Morley, had a troubled background. They are brought together by a set of circumstances surrounding Emily’s brother’s wedding. There follows an entertaining tale of romance, a jealous ‘ex’ the joys of friendship and some very tender moments towards the end. I received a copy and have voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and opinions ...more

I received an ARC of this book. This story is about two scarred people. The heroine, Emily, is scarred literally while the hero, Malcolm, is scarred emotionally. They both learn to accept themselves and, in turn, each other. I highly recommend this book, can’t wait for her next one!

I read the first book in this series and really liked it but this book has something special about it that made me like it even more. The scars both emotional and physical make these characters more relatable. Their vulnerabilities are shown as part of who they are and that they are not weak but very powerful when they rely on each other. Malcolm and Emily’s beautiful love story will have you smiling in the end.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I started reading the viscount's promise after being disappointed with another story that I couldn't get through. Initially I was only going to read a chapter in order to cleanse my palate after a disappointing story but I couldn't put this book down I couldn't wait to finish the entire story. I love how Malcolm brought out the confidence and Emily after she had grown up with the scar on her cheek due to an accident when she ...more

There is something about Christina Britton's writing that speaks to me on a soul-deep level, and I can't help but put this book on my list of favorite books for the year! Her first book, With Love In Sight, was on my list earlier this year, so it is no surprise that her second book makes it there again. I love how real her stories are and how genuine and flawed the characters, even while keeping the magic of romance and redemption alive. The secondary characters are colorful as well, and the aut ...more

I received The Viscount's Promise written by Christina Britton from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. This is the second in her Twice Shy Series but can be read as a stand-alone. However, the first book was wonderful and fully recommend it.
Lady Emily Masters has had a secret crush on her elder brother's friend Malcolm Arborn, Viscount Morley, since the day an accident left her face scarred and killed her twin brother. But when she comes face to face with him again after so many years, she

Lady Emily Masters has harboured a secret infatuation for the dashing Malcolm Arborn, Viscount Morley since a childhood accident claimed the life of her twin brother and left her own face scarred. To Malcolm, few engagements could possibly be more punishing than attending his friend’s country wedding, until the groom requests he watch over his timid sister before the ceremony & afterwards at the house party.

Lady Emily keeps her distance from all things Society, ever since the accident that killed her twin brother and left her face scarred. She is content to be on the outskirts and not attract unwanted attention, in fact, it may have taken over her life a bit. It is during Emily's brother's wedding celebration, that she crosses paths with Viscount Morley once again. Suddenly, Emily wants at least one person's notice, Morley's.

Morley does not want to play nursemaid to his best friend's little sister

This one picks up from where the last one left off and will guessing just like in the last one. He saw what she needed that no one else did and brought out a side of her that had long been hidden. It is not love at first sight after all these years for either one. The twists of who is trying to push them together wasn't a shock, but the twist to it was. I was holding my breath in the end because of who was trying to keep them apart. There are many parts that will have you laughing and parts that ...more

I loved this story it was emotional and touching. Emily has terrible scarring on her face from an accident that took the life of her twin brother. Over the years she’s learned to cope with the scars, by avoiding social engagements. Unfortunately for her, her brother is getting married and has asked the one man she’s had an infatuation with to watch over her.
Malcom has always known Emily to be a shy person but her scars have made her even more reluctant to go in public. While trying to build her

Lady Emily finds herself drawn to her brother’s friend Malcolm, who she has adored since he saved her from an accident that both scarred her face and killed her twin brother. Since the tragedy, Emily has avoided society but finds herself thrust into society again with her brother’s wedding. Little does she know that her brother has enlisted the help of Malcolm to help Emily gain her confidence. This story was quite entertaining with Malcolm trying to goad Emily into facing her fears whilst findi ...more

It is my second read by Christina Britton, i preordered this book right after reading the first installment in this Twice Shy Series.
I meet Emily in the previous book, she is a sister of the hero, and was profoundly hurt after their brother’s death. While her brother Caleb chooses to estrange himself from his family, she as a child withdraw from life and becomes a shy wounded and scarred girl. Despite her shyness, I do liked her quiet humor and sharp mind even if it is all kept as inner thoughts
