She is difficult, demanding, and at times, quite fierce. And Dr. John Blackmore can't take his eyes off her. The Countess of Randolph is the most striking woman he has ever seen...and the most infuriating patient he has ever tended.

Mired in responsibility, Bathsheba doesn't have time to convalesce in the country. She should be in London, hunting for a wealthy new lover to pay off her late husband's vast debts, not dallying with a devastatingly handsome doctor.

But it is only a matter of time until the good doctor and the obstinate countess will have to contend with the sparks that fly between them. And once their bodies surrender, their hearts may follow…

RATING: 4.5)MY FAVORITE COUNTESS by Vanessa Kelly is an exciting historical romance set in 1817 London and 1817 Compton Manor,Yorkshire. It is written with depth and details.The characters are not only enchanting,charming but also obstinate,demanding
at times,difficult at times and quite fierce. When Bathsheba meets Dr. John Blackmore she never expected to feel not only a sensual pull toward the good Dr. Blackmore but to also,dare I say, fall in love with him.For, Bathsheba,the Countess of Randolph, is in desperate need of a rich husband since her dead husband left her near penniless. She must support not only a household but also her sister,who is hidden away due to her illness. The now Lord Randolph,who is her ex-husband's cousin is not good with money.So Bathsheba feel she has a responsibility to them,even if it means her unhappiness. Dr. Blackmore is not only handsome,sexy,but he can't keep his eyes off of Bathsheba when they first meet and she him.What follows can only be sensual tension,while they both come to grips with their new found lust for each other.In the meantime Dr. Blackmore,also is on staff at one of the finest hospitals in London and he is working toward helping the less fortunate citzens of London. While the money isn't good he is in his own right weathly.Together, Bathsheba and Dr. Blackmore will surrender not only their bodies but also their hearts. This is a fast paced,page turning story that will leave you in awe of the differences between the upper and lower classes of Regency London during the 1800's,the sacrifices some make,and the differences some can and do make during this era. This is a must read. My Favorite Countess will become your favorite also.
