Book Review: Make a Viscount Beg by Tammy Andresen


Make a Viscount Beg by Tammy Andresen

How to Reform a Rake (Book 5)

May 21, 2019

Victorian Historical Romance



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?

This is a standalone romance but is part of a five book series with a prologue:

How to Reform a Rake
Don’t Tell a Duke You Love Him
Meddle in a Marquess’s Affairs
Never Trust an Errant Earl
Never Kiss an Earl at Midnight
Make a Viscount Beg





“Insults are the very fabric of our friendship.”

One of my favorite series from Tammy Andresen. It has humor, romance, a bit of danger, perfectly matched couples, and heart. I really enjoyed the premise of this series; five friends make a bet with a gypsy in regards to the five Ducat sisters. The last book in the series, Make a Viscount Beg, is centered around Chase and Adelaide. He doesn’t want a wife and she has no interest in a rake. She is feisty and strong-willed and he challenges her – a perfect match! Their banter and interactions are wonderfully entertaining.

Tammy AndresenTammy 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.
