This review is from: Romancing the Countess (Signet Eclipse) (Kindle Edition)
Leah George had only been married four months when she caught her husband with another woman in their home. Devastated she loved Ian and believed that he had loved her, obviously she had deceived herself. For a whole year she lived a half life, trying to carry on a normal existence. Ian still made love to her, she could smell the other woman's perfume on his skin. Here she was trapped in a marriage her husband loved another, she no longer loved him, her heart was broken. Then one evening waiting for him to return home, she is informed that he and his mistress have been killed in a carriage accident. Suddenly she is free, but now she is is forced to go through a year of mourning wearing black, just as much a prisoner as she was when Ian was alive. She decides to hold a house party, something which in her position would be scandalous. Leah knows she would become a pariah, but for once in her life she is going to do something she wants, Leah knows that people will accept her invitations, if out of nothing more than morbid curiosity. Sebastion Earl of Wriothesley was Ian's best friend he is outraged when he hears of the house party and determines to attend, even though he was not invited. He cannot allow Leah to cause any form of scandal. He has his own very personal reasons for this, that do not include any concern for Leah.
This is a first read for me of this author and boy oh boy was I surprised, this book was excellent. The plot was original I do not remember reading a period romance with anything like this storyline. We are introduced to the two lead characters gradually getting to know them as the story progressed. I loved the change in their feelings from hate, anger, to desire. The book was so well written and very well paced neither being rushed or dragged out, I was totally engrossed from the first page to the last.highly recommend.
