THE RUNAWAY COUNTESS
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
The first of McCabe’s delightful duet, Bancrofts of Barton Park, finds two country sisters in two different scandals. A heavy dose of flashbacks and regret slows the story, but there is enough danger and desire to keep it moving and make it a satisfying evening’s read.
Jane Bancroft leaves the glittering London life for her family’s familiar, safe country house to heal from a broken heart. All is well until her earl husband, Hayden Fitzwalter, appears one dark, stormy night. Hayden will not agree to a divorce and instead sets out to really court his wife. Despite the heat between them, he must come to terms with his personal history to make a promising future for them. Almost too late, the couple realizes that someone has followed him. There is real danger surrounding a legend of a hidden treasure, and those seeking it will stop at nothing to get it. (HARLEQUIN, Sep., 280 pp., $6.50)
