Jan 14, 2013

The Reluctant Countess

Regal, poised, and elegant, Sophie, Countess of Monmouth, is everything that a highborn lady should be. But Sophie is hiding a past that is far from royal. When Patrick, Earl of Coulter, realizes that her story doesn’t add up, he resolves to find out the truth of what Sophie and her sister-in-law are concealing. Although Sophie has every reason to avoid him, the handsome and charismatic Patrick awakens something wicked deep within her soul . . . a powerful need that Sophie must stifle in order to protect her place in society.

Despite Sophie’s humble background, the raven-haired beauty has won Patrick’s heart. But what Sophie needs now is an ally. Viscount Myles Dumbly, the disgruntled former heir of Monmouth, is determined to expose Sophie as a fraud to recapture his lost inheritance. Soon Patrick is drawn into a fight for both their lives. Somehow he must find a way not only to rescue Sophie from poverty once and for all, but to keep her in his arms forever.

The Reluctant Countess by Wendy Vella breathes life into historical romance. Vella delivers a romantic read  spiced to perfection and with exquisite flair in her debut novel.  All historical romances this year will have to live up to what Vella has accomplish with The Reluctant Countess.  Vella will mesmerize readers with her compelling alpha males and intelligent heroines which she has released into a world both rich and vibrant in detail. I look forward to meeting Wendy Vella's next hero.  The enchanting regency is the historical novel everyone should recommend in 2013!
