COURTING THE COUNTESS
Genre: Historical Romance
Artist Mallory Claeg is a well-known rogue whose bedroom escapades are legendary. But his womanizing days are over when he spies Brook Meylan, Lady A'Court, and falls head over heels in love. His
Few know the pain of Brook's failed marriage, or that she grieves for her lost child and not her cruel husband. She is tempted by Mallory's sensuality and the personal pain he bears. It is their shared need for redemption that brings them together, but it is their deepest desires that bind them, even as society, their friends, family and enemies try to tear them apart.
Pierce carries off just-simmering-underneath sexual tension like a virtuoso and keeps readers wondering just how these two dynamic characters will get together. This splendid read shimmers with the temptation of seduction and the healing power of love. VERY SENSUAL (Nov., 352 pp., $6.99)
