Courting His Countess

Historical Romance Novella

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

This book is also available with 3 other stories in THE 4 SCOUNDRELS BOX SET: A PIRATE, A SPY, A MERCENARY AND A ROGUE.

DESCRIPTION

The last woman Thomas, Lord Avondale, expected to fall in love with was the wife he betrayed and abandoned six years ago. When Rose doesn't accept his apology, however, he loses all hope of a happy future together. Yet he's thankful she has agreed to come to his bed to beget an heir. 

Known as the Ice Maiden at Queen Elizabeth I's court, Rose has been trying to forget the man she once loved—a love she thought destroyed after he spent their wedding night with his mistress. Withstanding Thomas's charms, however, is proving more difficult than she expected.

Can she forgive the ultimate betrayal? 

Can he ever atone for what he did?

Note: Courting His Countess is a novella of approximately 20,000 words, about one-quarter the size of a full-length novel.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
COURTING HIS COUNTESS may be shorter than most of my other books, but it was one of the most difficult stories I've ever written. What Thomas did to his wife is despicable and when I began to write, I didn't think I could make you, the reader, believe he was hero material. Yet the characters and their tale wouldn't leave my head, nor would the opening lines, so I wrote the story anyway. 

As I progressed, and especially when I switched to Thomas's viewpoint, I realized how very male he was being, and part of me started to feel sorry for him. Being a nobleman of his time, he just didn't get it. Not until he finally saw how his actions had affected a wonderful, strong woman.

COURTING HIS COUNTESS breaks one of the "rules" of the romance genre, and I know some of you will find Thomas's actions unforgiveable. I certainly don't blame you for that! But I've never been very good at sticking to the rules, and I hope you don't blame ME for listening to the voices in my head.

Happy reading!
