Counting on a Countess (Paperback)Eva Leigh (author)
- Coming soon
Perfect for fans of Poldark and Jane Eyre
For a shameless libertine and a wily smuggler in the London Underground, marriage is more than convenience-it's strategy . . .
Christopher "Kit" Ellingsworth, war veteran and newly minted Earl of Blakemere, buries his demons under every sort of pleasure and vice. His scandalous ways have all but emptied his coffers . . . until a wealthy mentor leaves him a sizeable fortune. The only stipulation? He must marry within one month to inherit the money. Kit needs a bride and the bold, mysterious Miss Tamsyn Pearce seems perfect.
Husband hunting isn't Tamsyn's top priority-she's in London to sell her new shipment of illicit goods-but she's desperate for funds . When a handsome earl offers to wed her and send her back to Cornwall with a hefty allowance, Tamsyn agrees.
But when an unexpected proviso in the will grants Tamsyn control of the inheritance, their arrangement becomes anything but convenient. Now, Kit's counting on his countess to make his wildest dreams a reality and he plans to convince her, one pleasurable seduction at a time...

`Delightful banter and delicious passion... simply divine!'
New York Times bestselling author Tessa Dare
`Eva Leigh is proving herself as vital a voice in the genre as those with slightly lengthier book lists to their credit. Leigh consistently crafts whip-smart heroines and irresistible heroes delivered in packages bursting with wicked wit, feminist leanings, and sex positivity...Counting on the Countess delivers yet another sexy, smart novel full of characters who are utterly of their time, yet pulse with a vibrant pertinence to our modern world.' Entertainment Weekly
` A divine blend of depth, wicked heat and sparkling wit. Eva Leigh's characters leap off the page and linger long after you've closed the book. She's a wonderful writer.' Julie Anne Long
