The Viscount's Vow by Julie Coulter Bellon

A man changed by war. The woman who loves him. And a secret that could tear them apart.

Edward Rutledge, the newly minted Viscount Carlisle, has come back from war a changed man. The echo of the battlefield and the death of his best friend Marcus haunt him to the point that he decides to break his betrothal to Charlotte---the only woman he’s ever loved.

When he’s summoned home to Hartwell Manor, he comes face-to-face with her. Slowly, her strength and love make him see that he might be able to reclaim what he thought was lost. But when word reaches him that Marcus might not have died in Spain and yet lives, Edward will do anything to bring his friend home. As the mystery deepens, however, Edward is drawn into an intrigue that forces him to confront the demons that have plagued him since he returned to England. Will he have to sacrifice everything he’s built with Charlotte in order to keep her safe?

In Emilee's opinion:

I loved the Viscount's Vow! I loved the story, characters and the plot. If I were to judge a book by its cover, I would definitely choose this one. Secretly, I would love to be on a book cover so if you are interested in seeing my head shots, give me a call. This was the second book I've read by Julie Coulter Bellon and each time she asks me to review one of her books, I get excited. She had a way to capture my attention (which can be hard to do) and her writing flowed very well. 

The Viscount's Vow was a story about a man named Edward Rutledge who returned home from battle. He experienced many challenges and trials which he slowly had to overcome.  However, he was able to get through them and figure out a way to keep his promises. Edward was betrothed to his childhood sweetheart Charlotte but he broke it off. Will they get married? I loved Charlotte's courage and patience throughout the story. There were many wonderful characters but not too many. I didn't feel overwhelmed. This story had a nice flow and was never boring.  There was mystery and romance and restitution. If you are a Regency romance fan, you will love Viscount's Vow.
