Having just inherited his uncle's viscountcy, George Bennett-Jones is informed by his mistress that he must find a bride, preferably the daughter of an aristocrat. Through a series of lessons, she instructs George on the finer points of meeting and courting a woman of the ton - and she has one in mind for him.
It's love at first sight when George spies Lady Elizabeth Carlington dancing with the Earl of Trenton. But the auburn-haired beauty is quite sure the earl will offer for her hand, and she has every intention of accepting - even if his kiss has her feeling as if she were being kissed by her best friend's dog!
When Elizabeth mentions the unfortunate kiss during the ball's supper, George implies there is an art to kissing, innocently offering to replace her poor first impression with a proper kiss. Intrigued, and unaware that George is a viscount and a secret patron of her charity, Elizabeth accepts his offer at the next ball. George is more than happy to accommodate her. His kiss has the daughter of a marquess so stunned, so amazed and so aroused, she requests that he demonstrate the pleasures that can be had in a marriage bed. Knowing he has only one night to court the woman who has captured his heart, George sets out to prove himself while promising he will leave her virtue intact.
Will the evening of pleasure he has planned for Elizabeth convince her to accept his hand in marriage? Or simply leave her with a vivid memory of what she will be missing should she accept the earl's marriage proposal? The lessons of a mistress prove invaluable in The Kiss of a Viscount.

Always Promise Her More!
What did you love best about The Kiss of a Viscount?
Everything, basically. First and foremost tho has to be the author's writing for without a great writer you don't get a great story. The characters were very likable and made you want to know more of their story, the plots and sub plots.
What did you like best about this story?
Besides everything I have mentioned in the review, I liked the more in dept overview of mistresses of the time. Very fascinating.
Have you listened to any of Joshua Story’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, not that I remember but would love to read other stories narrated by him.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, very definitely but had to listen to it in two sitting for it was fairly long. The time did fly by however.
Any additional comments?
I am a new lover of Regency romances, never been able to read them but
very much love to listen to them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had everything one
wishes to encounter in a book, mystery, romance, and humor, just to mention a few. The
characters were developed very well. The synopsis had me thinking this would mainly be
one sided, being about the main male character, George, but the the female character,
Elizabeth, had an equally well written story line. The Regency era had many
characteristics I wasn't aware of and I was also informed of the relationship between nobles
and their mistresses. This story showed how a man of the ton had actually loved and
respected his mistress and became friends with her. Gave me a new respect for
mistresses back then. Some were fully taken care of and considered their affair as
employment. So different than today. I highly recommend this audio book, for the writing,
the story line and an excellent narrator.

This was a very good listen. The story premise was a bit unbelievable but the excellent sex scenes and HEA made up for that. The narration was ok, his voice was nice to listen to but there were several points where he paused at the wrong time, throwing off the rhythm of the sentences a bit. I did enjoy the book and look forward to listening to more from this author.
