traditional Regency romance with the steamy passion of today s Regency historicals isn t easy, but Kelly proves to be than capable Booklist Guaranteed to satisfy even the most passionate romance reader Teresa Medeiros, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Plaid This book had an incredible good premise, very interesting and original characters, and some original conflicts

incredible good premise, very interesting and original characters, and some original conflicts Unfortunately the writing voice started to irritate me after a while, there were just so many adjectives I mean, I do not particularly need to know that the hill of Sheba s palm is plump, and it definitely doesn t need repeating Especially in thesteamy scenes, the adjectives were out of control.The pacing seemed a bit off at times as well, especially in the last chapters, where all conflicts seem to come to a simultaneous blow up, which was a bit much And at least two of the conflicts problems deservedtime for the resolution.I m a bit frustrated really, because Bathsheba was such an intriguing heroine She isn t a particularly nice person, in fact at times she s quite the shrew, but there were a lot of layers to her John is one of the few people who actually takes the time to look beyond her harridan facade, and see the whole person.However, even this aspect of the story, which I was looking forward to most, wasn t paced very well I felt like John knew who Sheba was too quickly It was a little bit too much insta lust into love for my tastes.The medical parts of the story were good though, and it s what kept me from stopping with it I have a thing for Historical Romances with Hero s who re not from the ton but have a profession in stead, and John s story was excellent in that aspect All his frustrations and worries with medecine, the poor people who can t afford proper care, and the rich and wealthy who rule the hospitals with politics There s never enough of that.It could have been a great book, but the voice and execution were really not for me Too bad this book languished on my TBR for such a long time I really liked it Doctor is a hero who cares for the poor but still used the knowledge of the time no advocating methods that hadn t been discovered yet The heroine was experienced no simpering miss and ruthless enough to do whatever it takes to protect her

when if you weren t careful, an infected toenail could kill you Hero would come toe to toe with the heroine who was very strong willed and come out on top pun intended I ll definitely read this author

previous story was such an unbearable and nasty harridan and how she ends up deserving the love and acceptance she gets in this book Once I realized who this book was about I was all excited with anticipation and the author met every one of my hopes as the plot unfolded Lady Randolph, Bathsheba, truly earned the title of heroine She s a woman of her time who has been dealt with an overabundance of bad luck, sadness and victimization As a woman with a noble title she s not expected to have to worry about much and it s acceptable for her to grace the parties and the dress makers in fashion and with attitude All of it is a front What a reader will find out is that Bathsheba is a woman driven to desperation and she will do anything she has to in order to protect her family She has tried it in the past and fortunately failed She can t fail in this book and a reader comes to understand how much is riding on the success of her personal sacrifices A reader feels her wounds, her worry and her crushing fears of failure She s a truly tortured heroine and it s going to take a special kind of man, a genteel warrior, to reach her heart and the terrified woman hiding within Enter Dr John Black He needspatience than patients I couldn t resist saying that But it s also very true Bathsheba has the poor guy dancing down an emotion filled path filled with thorns, potholes and honeyed candy He s a smart, educated and intelligent man who would do Sir Sherlock Holmes proud He watches, observes and sees what everyone else has failed to see and benefits from the insight he gains He applies it to his practice with the poor and he applies it to the heroine She is as injured as some of his patients to be sure and I really enjoyed watching the hero peel back Bathsheba s defensive layers to find the jewel within He is as methodical as a surgeon focused and intent I loved his steady strength, his sense of humor and his finesse He s not perfect and I liked that too Readers will find out that he has his own burden, his own fear that dogs his path and colors many of his decisions It will take a very scary and dramatic confrontation to bring it all to the fore The conflict in this story is complicated and delightfully meaty which kept me turning the pages at a swift clip I never could second guess the hero or heroine because they never did quite what I expected It kept me off kilter but I m glad to say they did that to each other too That was fun There were a few elements of external conflict that really showcased the strength of character and personality of both the hero and heroine I also thought it made them grow into better people as the story continued It wasn t an easy growth nor was it without pain Those make for the best reading and Ms Kelly delivers When John and Bathsheba succumb to the passion that burns inside them for each other, the pages turn smoking hot I simply have to say that playing doctor was never so much fun especially when the guy is a real doctor I found that I fanned myself from frequently heated cheeks because the scenes were so well written, I could visualize them Thank goodness it s winter right now I also appreciated how Ms Kelly had Lord Silverton and his family, as well as the Stantons from the previous book, play pivotal supporting roles in this story I enjoyed seeing them again and I thought their gradual acceptance of Bathsheba a sweet and telling addition to the book It gave me the warm and fuzzies And no, readers do not need to read the first book to appreciate My Favorite Countess This book completely stands on its own because the hero and heroine are such vibrant and well rounded personalities The secondary characters are frosting on a very yummy cake My Favorite Countess is a thrilling and heart touching historical romance that truly grips a reader right from the emotional beginning The pace, dialogue and dramatic conflicts kept me on the edge of my seat while the interaction and by plays between John and Bathsheba kept me entertained and committed to their story in the hope of their finding a happily ever after That they did with a very poignant, sincere and lightly humorous wrap up that satisfied the romantic in me I am thrilled with the quality of writing that Ms Kelly provides and I heartily look forward to her next book My Favorite Countess is quality romance
