Summary

Pursued by the Viscount is the fourth story in USA Today bestselling author Carole Mortimer’s highly acclaimed Kindle Top100 Regency Unlaced Series. 

 

Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Unlaced, Alpha, and Knight Security series have stronger sexual content and language than my other books. 

 

Lady Rachel Shaw had believed her unhappiness to be at an end once her husband died, but now she finds herself caught in the clutches of a cruel and relentless blackmailer. Totally at a loss as to who she can turn to for help, her friend the Countess of Winterbourne, advises Rachel to go to Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon, a gentleman who was recently of assistance to Fliss and her husband. 

 

Rachel doesn’t know Lucien Brooke personally, but she has seen him many times at one Society event or another, and knows him to be an aristocratic and handsome gentleman who has avoided every attempt by the beauties of the ton to be lured into matrimony. Gossip and reputation say the viscount as being a cold and arrogant gentleman who does not suffer fools gladly. And Rachel has been very foolish indeed. 

 

Left with no other choice, Rachel finally decides to risk the viscount’s scorn and ask for his help. 

 

Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon cannot deny Lady Rachel Shaw’s beauty or desirability, but unfortunately she is also as flighty and flirtatious as his mother, a woman who has been embroiled in one scandal after another for most of his life. That being the case, Rachel Shaw is the type of woman whom Lucien has always avoided having any personal involvement. 

 

Looks can be deceiving, however, and within minutes of Rachel calling at his home and explaining her current predicament, Lucien realizes he was wrong to have judged the lady without really knowing her, or her circumstances. 

 

He now not only wants to help Rachel in her current predicament but he also wants her. In his arms. In his bed. 

 

Persuading Rachel into accept any of those things from him is going to be a battle Lucien has every intention of winning.

    When a famous DJ is murdered mid-set, a reporter searches for the killer From 3:00 to 4:00 every afternoon, Tutter “Tut” King reigns supreme. The dreamy disc jockey is a favorite of the sock-hop set, spinning all the records that are too rocking for their parents to let them buy. When Tut is implicated in a payola scheme—taking as much as $100,000 under-the-table to push third-rate records—his teenage fans stand behind him. For Tut’s last radio appearance, the teenyboppers turn out in force. He promises them a shocking announcement at the end of his set. Instead, they get a murder.   During intermission, some unfriendly listener buries an icepick in the record spinner’s chest. Reporter Jim Layton believes that Tut was about to implicate his bosses in the corruption. Now it’s up to Layton to determine who put radio’s coolest DJ on ice.

    WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE DISAPPEARED AND NO ONE BELIEVES HE EVEN EXISTED? 
    Detective Richard Saussure and forensic doctor Annette Kensington are barely catching their breath after the new developments in the triplets' killer case. A new set of human remains has been found in the forest. Two killings in a row after years of inactivity. It's official: it has become a serial killer. 
    Meanwhile, a new client arrives at Saussure's doorstep: Nina Davies, a blind seamstress whose fiancé has gone missing. His name is Maurice Bennett, a young lawyer with a promising career ahead. The police believes Maurice has abandoned his bride-to-be, so Nina Davies is forced to hire a private investigator that can solve the mystery of Maurice's whereabouts. 
    But, there is an unexpected twist in what Richard Saussure believes to be a simple case of a love gone sour. Nina cannot provide a physical description of her fiancé, and there are no photographs of Maurice Bennett. And, as soon as Richard Saussure starts to dig a little deeper, he finds out that no one has ever seen Maurice Bennett. Not even Rebecca Davies, Nina's mother. Yet, the blind seamstress holds strong evidence of Maurice's existence. How can this be possible?
