Deception, Intrigue, and some forbidden desire makes this story a keeper. Oh dear. Another book that has been sitting on my Kindle, waiting to be read, for quite some time. I just kept passing it up for something different. Was it the cover? Was it the seemingly ordinary synopsis? I am not sure. BUT, once I opened to the first page, I was sunk. Just plain sunk. So, beware! This book has a way of grabbing you and not letting go. John Dalkington-Smythe is living peacefully in Canada. He is considered dead after fighting the fight at Waterloo. With scars inside and out and a strained family relationship, he never wants to return to England. When he past catches up with him, he reluctantly agrees to return but on the way home tragedy strikes, leaving him the heir to an Earldom. Faith Smith is currently posing as John's widow. While she may be a war widow, she is most definitely not John's. But she thought he was dead. She thought no harm would ever come from her little lie. Then John returns and everything changes. Will he denounce her? How can she admit the truth? What will she do? One of the best things about The Counterfeit Countess is how honest John and Faith are with one another. In everything. Even in the beginning they were fairly honest about their motives and expectations. Both are good people in untenable situations. You can't help but admire them for their strong moral character throughout the whole story. Lynne Connelly does a wonderful job building up the relationship between John and Faith and it is done in a very believable time frame. First attraction, then unwavering trust, and finally love. They are devoted to one another in a remarkable and unmovable way that is as refreshing as it is beautiful. There is little conflict between our hero and heroine, instead the sense of unease and complications are brought in from outside sources. And I love that. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is sweet, smart, and a bit naughty. I have a feeling it will remain with me for quite some time and am excited to see what else Miss Connelly has in store for us. 4.5 Stars!
