Thank you for stopping by! I thought I would sneak in one more review before the end of 2019 so here’s my review for His Countess for a Week by Sarah Mallory. A big thank you to the author for my Kindle copy. Right, let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
Pretend marriage to the earl
Sharing everything—except a bed…
To uncover a ruthless killer, Arabella Roffey masquerades as the Countess of Westray, not expecting her “husband” to suddenly appear! He could expose her but instead agrees to continue her ruse for a week. Randolph is brooding, handsome, and Bella likes him more than she should. As she pretends to be his wife, they share everything except a bed—but the temptation to do so is becoming all too real…
This book was a perfect escape and I really enjoyed getting to know both Ran and Arabella. Their first meeting was perfect and instantly made me warm to them both especially as Arabella is masquerading as Ran’s wife. It all added a playful edge to the beginning of the book that I loved! I thought Ran’s back story was really interesting and added a much deeper edge to his character. He made some pretty big mistakes in his youth and has paid for them, growing up along the way. Then you have Arabella who is quietly strong and caring in her nature. When these two meet there is a connection that just grows and grows!
The plot moves at a lovely pace as the reader sees Ran and Arabella’s friendship grow along with an attraction between the pair that they fight to resist. There is also a mystery at the heart of this book that Arabella is determined to solve but it also adds conflict as Ran worries about how easily Arabella finds herself in trouble. He can’t help but get involved which of course all adds to their growing chemistry.
There is romance, love and danger within this book and I didn’t want to put it down especially with all the excitement in the later part of the story! Ran and Arabella had that all important chemistry that just sizzled below the surface bringing tension with every interaction. I couldn’t help but smile as they danced around each other but at the same time they were unable to keep away.
His Countess for a Week is fun, charming and romantic! Loved it!
