Sophie Russell did not like waiting for her sisters who were trying to solve the mystery of who really took the money. She decided to go after their last suspect, Viscount Griffiths. She loathes the man but when she gets to know the real man she will find that she starts to feel things for him.
Viscount Griffiths knew that his new cook was more but not exactly what he had expected. He will work hard to find out her secrets only to be shocked with what he finds.
Never Marry a Viscount is the third and final book to the series Scandal at the House of Russell. I really liked this book. I thought it was a great finish to the series.
Sophie to me in the other books was a little immature and spoiled, and she was in this one but she learned. She became a better person as she worked but she still had her moments. Now Viscount Griffiths was a very confident man who had a lot of stress which was mainly due to his stepmother. He wasn’t a bad man per say but he did like to do things his way.
Anne Stuart creates the plot to be humorous when she has the viscount thinking that Sophie is to be his new mistress that was sent by an agency. This creates a problem for Sophie as she is pursued relentlessly by the viscount, though that chase will only last so long for Sophie until she gives in.
So there was a surprise moment that happened at the very beginning and it dealt with the villain of this book. You will quickly find out the identity and I have to say that I was surprised. I thought that Stuart described Rufus Brown perfectly especially with how he came to be such a villain.
I liked that the other two sisters were involved in the book as well. They were towards the middle to the end of the book but I felt that with them there it wrapped up the series nicely.
