Christopher A??KitA? Ellingsworth, war veteran and newly minted Earl of Blakemere, buries his demons under every sort of pleasure and vice. His scandalous ways have all but emptied his coffers . . . until a wealthy mentor leaves him a sizeable fortune. The only stipulation? He must marry within one month to inherit the money. Kit needs a bride and the bold, mysterious Miss Tamsyn Pearce seems perfect. Husband hunting isnA??t TamsynA??s top priorityA??sheA??s in London to sell her new shipment of illicit goodsA??but sheA??s desperate for funds to keep her smuggling operation afloat. When a handsome earl offers to wed her and send her back to Cornwall with a hefty allowance, Tamsyn agrees. After all, her secrets could land her in prison and an attentive, love-struck spouse could destroy everything. But when an unexpected proviso in the will grants Tamsyn control of the inheritance, their arrangement becomes anything but convenient. Now, KitA??s counting on his countess to make his wildest dreams a reality and he plans to convince her, one pleasurable seduction at a time.

Professional reviews

"Zara Hampton-Brown narrates the story of two complicated individuals who must work together to accomplish their objectives--which are seemingly at odds. A war veteran and a smuggler embark on a marriage of convenience but end up discovering something much deeper. Kit Ellingsworth would be easy to write off as a dissolute nobleman, but Hampton-Brown imbues her portrayal of him with a sense of honor, humor, and charm. Her portrayal of Tansyn Pearce neatly balances capability in matters of business with vulnerability in matters of the heart, creating a character who is wholly relatable and sympathetic. While Hampton-Brown is a trifle inconsistent in her delivery of Tamsyn's Cornish accent, this is a minor flaw in an otherwise enjoyable performance. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
