COUNTESS OF SCANDAL
Genre: Historical Romance, Ireland
A second chance at love, rebellion, a feisty heroine and a noble hero are elements to savor in the first of the Daughters of Erin books. McKee (aka Amanda McCabe) sets the stage for a romantic adventure that captures the spirit of Ireland and a pair of star-crossed lovers to perfection.
Eliza Blacknall and William Denton grew up together in southern Ireland. Their childhood friendship bloomed into young love, but then William left for a career in the army. Though she's British by birth, Eliza's heart belongs to Ireland. Now a widowed countess, she crusades for freedom as an anonymous pamphleteer.
Will returns with a regiment sent to quash the brewing rebellion. He knows Eliza is involved with the rebels and struggles to keep her safe. But his efforts to convince her that treason is a dangerous game only fire her passion for her work. They tussle between love and loyalty, making decisions that could bring ruin or happiness. (FOREVER, Feb., 368 pp., $6.99)
