Product Description

When charming rake Tristan Barrett sweeps Lady Elizabeth off her feet, stealing both her heart and a kiss in a secluded garden, her brother challenges Tristan to a duel. The only way to save her brother and Tristan from harm—not to mention preserve her reputation—is to get married. But her father, the Duke of Pemberton, refuses to allow his daughter to marry anyone but a titled lord. The duke demands that Elizabeth marry Tristan’s older brother, Richard, the Earl of Averston. Now Elizabeth must give up Tristan to marry a man who despises her, a man who loves another, a man she’ll never love.

Richard fears Elizabeth is as untrustworthy as his mother, who ran off with another man. However, to protect his brother from a duel and their family name from further scandal, he agrees to the wedding, certain his new bride will betray him. Yet when Elizabeth turns his house upside down and worms her way into his reluctant heart, Richard suspects he can’t live without his new countess. Will she stay with him or is it too little, too late?

I am a sucker for happy endings all the way around, but at the end of this book, there was still one character who was left heartbroken. I hope there is a companion novel to tell her story of finding love.

A popular conflict in romance novels is emotional struggles. Poor girl began to fear that she had an inconstant heart because of her mixed feelings between the brothers. She thought that she had loved one brother but began to grow feelings for the other. Poor boy feared making attachments because he felt that they would all abandon him in the end.

It is sad to see how abuse has far reaching harmful effects. Whether it be from physical harm or emotional neglect, the effects are not easily overcome.

I really liked the character development. It teaches about second chances and forgiveness. With a belief in these two things, anything can be overcome.

Loved the characters and the way the relationships develop. A great storyline. I really hope Donna writes a sequel about Tristan.

FYI - a clean read with a HEA

4.0 out of 5 stars Clean reading at it's best! 4 January 2017
By TJ Mackay - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Close to clean regency perfection! If not for just a couple of unbelievable stretches, it would be a resounding 5 stars! The storyline employs some very creative and unique twists - something rare these days with the plethora of regency offerings out there - that make this lovely story absolutely delightful reading.
Those glitches? The fact that Richard and Elizabeth didn't consummate their marriage for MONTHS after the marriage was a bit of an impossible stretch, especially after their problems had been resolved. A story really can stay clean while still allowing a normal marital relationship flourish. That and the slight eye-rolling thread that kept Elizabeth pining after Triston although she had only known him 5 days. Otherwise Ms. Hatch has created a pitch perfect romance!
5.0 out of 5 stars Not To Miss 22 February 2017
By Patiotoole - Published on

This book sat on my reading shelf for over a month before I finally got started. However once I did start I could not put it down. This is a great book. I love Richard and I love Elizabeth although there were times that I was frustrated that the constant misunderstandings along the way. Ultimately, however, this really is a great story with bad guys, a mystery, and perhaps a character who could be headed toward having his own story line at some point.

My only wish would have been for the H/h to have a bit more of their story after resolution and their ultimate acknowledgement of love - even an epilogue would have been great. However, I still urge others Not to miss this truly great romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much 23 November 2016

While I liked the characters, the continued misunderstandings just got annoying. The H and would decide to make an effort and the something would change their mind again and again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Donna Hatch 7 October 2016
By nari - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Donna Hatch is a favorite author of mine and regency books are some of my favorites. I was excited when I saw Donna Hatch had a new book out. Elizabeth has been physically abused by her mother and told that most of what she does is wrong. This treatment leaves her craving love and acceptance. When Tristan Barrett comes along Elizabeth is taken in by his attention and charm. She is very naive and does not realize the consequence of her actions until she is caught in a comprising embrace. Elizabeth's brother challenges Tristan to a duel. Richard, Tristan's older brother, intervenes trying to stop the duel and the only solution Elizabeth's father would agree to is if Richard would marry Elizabeth. Elizabeth believes her and Tristan are in love and Richard has always planned on marrying his childhood friend Leticia Wentworth. Can the two find love with each other when they think they are in love with other people? Can Richard get over trust issues left from his mother leaving when he was a child? Will Elizabeth blossom when she is no longer under her abusive mothers thumb?
I really liked both Elizabeth and Richard. Elizabeth was a survivor who shoulder on even when she felt lonely and abandoned. She was very kind to others misfortune. Richard was a true gentleman and was very protective of those in his care. I was a bit frustrated from time to time of Elizabeth and Richard misconceptions. Overall I enjoyed the story and was very happy with the book by the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Put it Down 29 October 2016
By Aimee Cain - Published on

I usually enjoy reading before I go to sleep. Bad part with starting this book at night, I couldn't put it down until I looked at the clock and saw that I had 3 hours before alarm went off. Yes...Courting the Countess was that good. It is difficult to find a clean regency romance novel, I am so glad that I came across this book.
