Book 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. I've priced it as low as I am able.



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!

~CJ

4.0 out of 5 stars short but enjoyable 9 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just right as a novella, with a beginning, middle and end. The author set the scene for what happened previously, making it easy to see the misunderstandings and a way through if both are willing - are they? Just right for a lazy hour or so. I will buy more from this author.

Not a riveting read but still worth completing as a light bit of raunchy romance. I have preferred some of the other books by this author
