The Ideal Countess

Midnight kisses. Fast gavottes. Secret duels. Alice Winpole just wants a successful Season, but she gets so much more. London, 1810... Alice never dreamed her Season would go this well. She has beautiful dresses, new friends, and she has caught the eye of the most dashing bachelor in London, the Duke of Cornwall. But her friend, Hugh Osborne, the Earl of Windemere, is concerned the duke’s attentions towards Alice aren’t completely honorable. While she dreams of marrying the impossible duke, Hugh scrambles to find a way to protect her - and win her heart - before Alice’s reputation is dashed to pieces. This friends-to-lovers Regency Romance is perfect for fans of London ballrooms, scrumptious tea, and delicious dramas of the heart. What Readers Have Said About The Ideal Countess: "The Ideal Countess is a stunning regency debut, with strong-willed characters that set their sights with determined precision. Of the cast of characters, Hugh was the most delightful, with his passion for knowledge and invention. He is the best kind of hero in a romance: determined, passionate and unyielding with his love. Though he and Alice may struggle to get on the same page, the ups and downs and tugs at your heartstrings are well worth the satisfying ending, leaving you with no doubt that these two were better suited for each other than anyone else." - Nicole Highland, Romance Writer and Reviewer "This story is a masterpiece at developing the main character from a naive debutant to a mature, self-aware woman. This is one of those books that I highly recommend reading in one sitting. I loved being able to lose myself in the story." - Melissa Mackarewicz, Romance Reviewer "If you enjoy a good Regency romance with characters that will pull on your heart strings and a plot that is different than so many historical romances, then you will enjoy The Ideal Countess as much as I did. I'm amazed by the talent in this debut novel and will be looking for more books by Katherine Grant. Happy reading!" - Vikki Vaught, Romance Writer and Reviewer
