This book was delightful and fun. Enough Christmas, enough story, enough love and fun characters!

I think I should change my pen name to "the Scrooge" this Christmas. I have read six Christmas books in the past few weeks to set myself in the holiday spirit, only Ms. Diane Farr's "Once Upon the Christmas" did not make it onto my "Bah Humbug" list (I like her writings a lot).

I had no problems with the plot or the writing in this book. However, I had a big dislike of our heroine, Olivia Faraday. Granted that she was the only person in charging everything: from taking care her dementia father to the rambunctious twins, responsible for managing family economy to helping with the land management. These all showed her capabilities very well, but she was constantly portrayed as a pinch-faced shrew to the hero and an indulgent daughter, sister, and aunt to others, where they were walking all over her generosities, made me felt sorry for Jack Harrow, at least he was really making an effort to change and shoulder his responsibilities but unfairly received cold treatment instead. Not to mention the lack of chemistry on her side.

My frustration and impatience mounted to page 190 when Olivia changed her mind and decided to renew and accept Jack's marriage proposal but, guess what, Jack backed out of it. That was the deciding straw for me to quit the book... flipping few pages after that, it was like all characters came upon the stage for the finale. I felt the author somehow lost her focus or maybe ran out of ideas as to how to prolong the story and wrap it up neatly at the end... Well, it didn't quite work for me, no need to rush out and purchase one, perhaps best to check it out from your local library first.

Recently I have been looking at other reviews on various Regency romances and I am amazed at the highs and lows. While looking at the older Regency stories I expect kissing but no sex. That is just the way of it so I am not disappointed if the heat of the romance is light. What I love to find is great chemistry, some humor and a plot that moves me along. I don't want to be tempted to skip pages or shuffle through slow-reading.

A VISCOUNT FOR CHRISTMAS is just that. Olivia Faraday's father has elements of dementia. Her younger sister, Frederica, is a dreamer. Her older sister, Susanna, has returned home with her two young sons after her husband recently died. Poor Olivia, everyone's responsibilities fall on her shoulders. The family has little money and she tries to hide how close they are to entering the poor house.

Jack, Lord Harrow, is shallow at the start of the story and this may put others off. He doesn't remember meeting Olivia a few years before and his attitude is fix the immediate problems of the estate he has inherited and then set off for London and better times. There are times you will want to smack him for being so callous but when he starts to change everything within the story starts to mesh.

Just how smart is Frederica? Is Susanna as thoughtless as she appears? Will there be better times for 'Papa'? Lastly, what must Jack do to win sensible Olivia's hand? This Christmas romance is a nice surprise.

While "A Viscount For Christmas" is a little more somber and angst-ridden than is the usual Zebra Christmas fare, it still proved to be an interesting and compelling read -- even if things became a tad too complicated towards the end.
Miss Olivia Faraday is near the end of her tether: her father's mental health seems to be slipping faster than ever, they practically have no money left, and now her widowed elder sister, Susanna, and her two sons are about to turn up. How is Olivia to stretch the budget in order to house and feed three extra people, especially when Christmas is around the corner? But the crowning worry comes in the shape of Lord Jack Harrow. Olivia's father used to be the consulting agriculturist for Lord Harrow's now deceased uncle. Now Lord Harrow has inherited Littleton Park, and Olivia cannot help but fear that Lord Harrow will retire her father. What would the practically penniless Faradays do then? And where would they go? The very thought that the fate of her family lies in the hands of a care-for-naught fribble like Lord Harrow is enough to make even the most optimistic of women feel bilious! But Olivia has a plan. She will make the useless man see that her father still has a lot to contribute and that he is on the road to recovery. So what if it will mean that she will have to spend an inordinate amount of time with the man? But when Lord Harrow proves to be kind, generous, intelligent and self-effacing, Olivia cannot but fear that in her zeal to prove her father's worth, she has left herself open to a different kind of threat...
What makes this novel good is the manner in which the authour allows us to see the changes in Lord Harrow -- from the careless fellow in the first few chapters, to the more responsible landlord at the end of the book. Ms Blair also does a wonderful job of depicting all the worries and angst that Olivia feels and experiences. It is true that Olivia is a bit sour and harsh for most of the book, but factor in all that she's coping with and going through, and I do think that most readers will forgive her her less than sunny nature. The subplot involving Olivia's sister, Susanna, was rather interesting too. And if I had one complaint, it was that things got a little too complicated towards the end of the book, with Lord Harrow and Olivia talking at cross purposes and the whole missing money bit. On the whole though, "A Viscount for Christmas" was a thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable read, with believable and engaging characters facing real problems. Definitely recommended reading.
