There’s no Christmas like a Regency Christmas spent under mistletoe! New York Times Bestselling author Cheryl Bolen and friends invite you to discover true love in eleven deliciously steamy romances in this all-new holiday collection
In Alina K Field’s Convincing the Countess, a penniless widowed countess with trade in her blood descends upon the country manor of her sons’ negligent guardian, intent on confronting him and setting a course for her boys’ futures. Instead, she finds his younger brother, a business-minded aristocrat with a penchant for widows and a distaste for emotional entanglements. A man who once witnessed her greatest humiliation. A man offering tempting distractions that threaten to derail all her plans.
Called home at Christmas to bring his older brother to heel and sort out the family finances, a baron’s younger brother wishes nothing more than to finish the task and return to his railway project. But when he finds his mother entertaining a fetching widow he met many years earlier as the unfortunate bride of a ne’er-do-well earl, temptation steers him along a different track, one that may derail all his plans.
Can he convince the reluctant countess to set a course for her future that includes him?
Why did you write this book?
The business-minded hero is a secondary character in last year’s The Duke She Despised. I knew he had to have his own happily ever after!
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy many, but I especially like historical romance and historical mystery.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Rupert Carsington, the hero of Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m just wrapping up Fated Hearts, a project for the Love After All Tragic Characters in Literature project, retelling the story of Macbeth as a Regency-set romance with a happily-ever-after; I’ve finished a novella called The Comtesse of Midnight, related to Fated Hearts for Storm and Shelter, a Bluestocking Belles and Friends Collection; and I’m also working on the first draft of a sequel to Convincing the Countess.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Fated Hearts, my Macbeth retelling, will be available at the end of December. Storm and Shelter is available now for preorder for the April 2020 release.
