Spirited, stubborn, and entirely irresistible…
She is difficult, demanding, and at times, quite fierce. And Dr. John Blackmore can’t take his eyes off her. The Countess of Randolph is the most striking woman he has ever seen…and the most infuriating patient he has ever tended.
Mired in responsibility, Bathsheba doesn’t have time to convalesce in the country. She should be in London, hunting for a wealthy new lover to pay off her late husband’s vast debts, not dallying with a devastatingly handsome doctor.
But it is only a matter of time until the good doctor and the obstinate countess will have to contend with the sparks that fly between them. Once their bodies surrender, their hearts may follow…
Bathsheba, thought this was an unusual name, needs to find herself a wealthy husband, even though she really does not want to be wed again, her responsibilities are forcing her into this situation. The one person she seems to be attracted to though is John, she knows he is not the one she needs to be feeling any type of feelings for but he seems to have other ideas.
John, who is a man-midwife – interesting occupation at the time, will do whatever is needed to get Bathsheba to marry him. He has his own ways for getting her to agree to be his wife, and the patience of a saint.
I loved watching their relationship unfold. A good combination of give and take while also learning how to trust and rely on one another. We also get to see what is going on with Meredith and Silverton from Mastering the Marquess, they both play an important role in the book.
Have to say, another great one from Vanessa Kelly!
