Add to Wish List
The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-
Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. The earl had
been horrible enough to Christiana during their short
marriage, so rather than mourn his passing, she decides to
put her late husband on ice and go on as if nothing's
Until the real earl appears. Richard came to confront the
villainous twin brother who had robbed him of name and
title, but with the lout already dead, he quietly assumes
his brother's identity instead. Now he must deal with his
consuming desire for his ravishing inherited "wife"-
certainly a gold digger and possibly a murderess-while
Christiana must deal with her dashing
unwanted "husband"...and both must figure out what to do
when the ice melts!

Re: The Countess
This is a wonderful book, I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait to read the next installment.

Only Lynsay Sands could take a story of a marriage which
might not be a legal marriage and turn it into a amusing
tale. Christiana has been very disappointed by her
marriage. Her husband is a mean, manipulative, abusive man
who has isolated her from her family and society. Her
sisters arrive unexpectedly and it starts a battle between
the couple. Christiana was married off when her father
incurs large gambling debts which he cannot pay. Now, her
father is in debt again. He has lost an enormous amount of
money while he doesn't remember playing at all. Now, his
debts force his second daughter to find a husband.
When they find her husband dead, Christiana decides to take
her sisters to a ball. After all, the situation is dire and
no one knows that her husband is dead. When her husband
walks into the ball with a friend Christiana has never met,
she nearly faints. What transpires is an entertaining story
with a search for a murderer as a secondary plot.
