How to Catch a Wild Viscount by Tessa Dare

★★★★ I quite enjoyed this quick novella by Tessa Dare. Luke was the strong, silent man Cecily has loved forever. He was a wonderful broody hero. 

Cecily knew what she wanted and went after it. I loved this about her. All in all, I really wish this was a longer book, so that I could spend more time with these characters. 

Here's the blurb:

Luke Trenton, Viscount Merritt, returned from war a changed man. Battle stripped away his civility and brought out his inner beast. There is no charm or tenderness in him now; only dark passions and a hardened soul. He has nothing to offer the starry-eyed, innocent girl who pledged her heart to him four years ago.

But Cecily Hale isn't a girl any longer. She's grown into a woman--one who won't be pushed away. She and Luke are guests at a house party when a local legend captures their friends' imaginations. While the others plunge into the forest on a wild, stag chase, Cecily's on the hunt for a man. She has only a few moonlit nights to reach the real Luke...the wounded heart she knows still beats inside the war-ravaged body...or she could lose him to the darkness forever.

This is a novella of approximately 20,000 words, or 80 pages. It was originally published under the title The Legend of the Werestag.
