Book Review/ Feature/ Giveaway: Countess of Scandal by: Laurel McKee

Summary: As children, Eliza Blacknall and William Denton ran wild over the fields of southern Ireland and swore they would be friends forever. Then fate took Will away to England, while Eliza stayed behind to become a proper Irish countess.

Years later, Will finally makes his way home-as an English soldier sent to crush the Irish uprising. When he spies the lovely Eliza, he is captivated by the passionate woman she has become. But Eliza's passions have led her to join the Irish rebel cause, and Will and Eliza now find themselves on opposite sides of a dangerous conflict.

When Ireland explodes in bloody rebellion, Will's regiment is ordered to the front lines, and he is forced to choose between his duty to the English king and his love for Eliza and their Irish homeland.

Review: To be completely honest, I had a particularly hard time getting into this just didn't draw me in the way I wanted it too. The beginning is where the hook should be and I just didn't feel it. Perhaps enter the drawing and see for yourself.

  1. Well, I don't know if I would call her my favourite, but certainly the most interesting. The Countess of Bathory in Romania. She was the Countess. There are legends of the Countess bathing in the blood of virgins in order to retain her youth. She was definitely a nutcase but make for interesting reading.

  2. Well, more of a dowager vicountess, but Violet Bridgerton from Julia Quinn's Bridgertons family series is a sweet and precious matriarch and puts up with a lot of romantic angst from her offspring!

  3. Bronwyn Scott's books had some pretty feisty Countesses in them that I throughly enjoyed. As long as she is feisty and not too prissy(although a good hero can generally take care of that)I will probably fall in love with her.

  4. I'm sorry to say I don't know of any contesses off the top of my head... I've heard about this book and I hope it's good!

  5. A Countess? I read many historical romances, but no names are coming to mind.


    please enter me in the giveaway. I can't think of a countess off the top of my head.

  7. I just finished reading A Countess Below Stair that has a great countess named Anna.
