Eva Leigh launches her seductive new Scandalous Ladies of London series...`It's not my habit to seduce impoverished widows...'
The Duke of Greyland lost his heart - and a princely sum - to a charming, beautiful and destitute widow who, after one passionate night, vanished without a trace. Cassandra Blair grew up on the city streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a rich mark - to be fleeced and forgotten - only she'd never forgotten him.
Years later, chance brings them together again, in a London gaming hell. Grayland is desperate to have her... never suspecting everything about his lover was a lie. But finding herself in dire financial straits, at risk of losing everything, Cassandra has no choice but to beg the man she betrayed for help.
The proud Duke will assist her under one condition: she doesn't leave his sight until her debts are paid! But can the real Cassandra - the smart, streetwise survivor - steal his heart all over again?

`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 on Counting on a Countess
`[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.' Julia Anne Long, USA Today bestselling author
`Every now and then, you discover a new (or at least, new-to-you) author who leaves you a little sunstruck... I was dazzled. She writes with intelligent charm and has a flair for punchy, period-appropriate dialogue. [...] I can't remember the last time I read about a hero was so genuinely nice and yet outrageously sexy. The Earl of Ashford is irresistible, and so is this book.' Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author of The Ravenels series.
