More or Less a Countess by Anna Bradley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
More or Less a Countess by Anna Bradley is book Two in The Somerset Sisters series. This is the story of Violet Somerset and Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare. I have read the previous book but feel you can make this a standalone if you wish to do so.
Violet is set to become a spinster since the town doesn't like her for being a Bluestocking and besides the one man she thought liked her has now married her best friend. When at a dinner party Nicholas shows up and seems interested in her younger sister Hyacinth. Violet knows he is a awful rake and doesn't want him near her young sister so when he assume she is Hyacinth she goes along with it. Nicholas was never given much love or self respect I felt which added to his self doubt and worth. So he just did what everyone expected him to do. But now he has to marry and produce an heir to satisfy family to keep up his lifestyle. So he thought Hyacinth would be the perfect choice a shy, quite girl to marry, place in one of his homes and then just do what he wants. But Violet/Hyacinth isn't so easy.
Loved reading their story and can't wait for the next book in this series.
