Meet the Author


Emily grew up in a house full of words and books -- her mother worked as a librarian and her father was a novelist – so perhaps it’s not surprising that she became a writer.

She loves to travel and has lived in Sweden, backpacked in Europe, and journeyed overland in the Middle East, China, North Africa, and North America. She enjoys climbing hills, yoga workouts, and watching reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly.

Emily writes fantasy novels (with strong elements of romance) as Emily Gee, and regency romance novels as Emily Larkin.

    In fact I did enjoyed this quick little read. Let me first tell

    In fact I did enjoyed this quick little read. Let me first tell you that this is kind of is a prequel to the The Spinster's Secret. I think it's important to establish that. If you have read that story you would remember there was a diary of the Countess. Well, this story is the how the diary came about and her experience with the groom. 

    The story shows that Creed Hall has been a dark and gloomy place from the get go. I'm surprise that it didn't suck the life out of Rose. I guess it kind of helped she had Will. Basically, the story is about a woman who has been abused my her husband, so she lacks the trust of men. However, Will teaches her that all men are not created equal and that love heals everything. 

    As I said, this a quick read. Yes, Will and Rose do get it on. However, they have to make their big escape before the Earl comes home. There's that worry that they may get caught, before they have a chance to be free. Overall, pretty good. So, if you are looking for a quick read, you might want to give The Countess's Groom a try.

    Super sweet! The Countess's Groom was an absolutely wonderful, super adorable, brilliant historical romance novella. Loved it!

    Rose was an excellent heroine. She has not had an easy time. Her husband is cruel, malicious, abusive, and basically a spawn of Satan. So, when he leaves for an extended trip, she relishes the freedom. But, when he writes that he will be returning early, she know that she can't handle living with him again. And, so starts the escape plan. She was a strong character to deal with what her husband did to her. And, to even consider running because, if she had been caught, there was no doubt that her husband would kill her. She was likable and a truly lovely heroine.

    Will was so sweet! He's basically everything that Rose's husband isn't. Kind, gentle, noble, loving, sweet, honorable. He was so amazing and adorable. It was easy to fall for him. I thought he was brilliant and I adored him.

    The romance was so sweet. Will has been in love with Rose for a while. And Rose, seeing that Will is the everything her husband isn't, slowly trusts and falls for him. It was so sweet to see. And, the attraction was there from the beginning. Though, in this case, love came before lust. Especially because Rose had to trust Will before she could go that far, after what her husband did. But, when it happened, it was steamy. I loved these two together. They were a brilliant couple.

    The plot was fast paced and I was absorbed in the story the entire way through. It was so sweet and lovely. And  the ending was perfect, a happy ending for Rose and Will along with a lead into The Spinster's Secret. 

    The Countess's Groom was a wonderful, sweet, adorable romance. I loved this novella! It was brilliant. Lovers of the genre, you have to read this.
