It’s release day for my new Victorian romance novel The Viscount and the Vicar’s Daughter! To celebrate, there’s a blog tour with excerpts, reviews, and interviews. I’m also hosting a special Victorian-themed gift giveaway here at my website, featuring a wax sealing set and a signed paperback copy of my book. To top it all off, my debut novel The Lost Letter has been reduced to $0.99 for the entire week just to mark the occasion. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
Advance Praise for The Viscount and the Vicar’s Daughter
“Matthews’ tale hits all the high notes of a great romance novel. Valentine, the heroine, is a spunky underdog completely unaware of her own beauty and uninterested in material wealth. Tristan is a smoldering hunk of love, a bad boy with a soft heart who just wants someone to believe in him. Their mutual attraction is a joy to behold….Cue the satisfied sighs of romance readers everywhere.” -Kirkus Reviews
“Matthews’ latest is filled with amusing, colorful characters placed within an engaging plot that will lure readers in…Tristan and Valentine’s romance is tender, genuine and passionate. With descriptive storytelling and natural conflict between characters, Matthews pens a heartfelt romance that culminates into a sweet ending that will leave readers happy. A wonderfully romantic read.” -RT Book Reviews
