The Viscount of Maisons-Laffitte is a modern-day romance set in the backdrop of history with a château and an international school housed in a centuries-old building. Charles, the Viscount, is a widower in his late thirties who seems to be puffed up in his own conceit; at least that is the firm impression he gives the American woman who teaches his son.
Chastity is a former graduate of the French lycée in Manhattan where she was seduced, scorned, and left pregnant and alone by the only son of a wealthy French family. She is not impressed by the Viscount’s status, nor is she looking to please him.
If it weren’t for an accident, which throws Charles and Chastity together, and the ongoing pressure of a repentant ex-boyfriend, superficial starlet, nefarious drug dealer, and an art heist that spans the decades, they might never have discovered that they are made for one another.
The Viscount of Maisons-Lafitte is a sparkling, modern romance that captures the classic Regency feel. Complete with faulty misconceptions, a sparring couple and a hero in the best tradition of Mr. Darcy, it’s an elegant, delectable read full of French style. I was captivated! Jaima Fixsen, author of Fairchild
This old-fashioned romance—filled with intrigue and suspense—about a modern day French nobleman and courageous American single mom is a must-read for romance lovers. Charlene Ross, author of Frosted Cowboy
In The Viscount of Maisons-Laffitte, Jennie Goutet serves up a sweet, delicious romance with a side dish of suspense. Her winsome main characters bring to mind Ms. Bennet and Mr. Darcy as they succumb to misjudgments and detours on the crooked road to love. From the first pages, I rooted for Charles and Chastity to breach life’s obstacles, solve a longstanding mystery, and ultimately find each other. Julie Gardner, Letters for Scarlet
