The Other Countess

Book One of the Lacey Chronicles

Written by Eve Edwards

The love between Ellie and Will was never supposed to happen. Both were courting other people just out of convenience and need. Will was left with nothing when his father passed and should find a woman with a good dowry to restore the family’s fortune. Ellie’s father is an alchemist and finds himself penniless and in constant trouble because of his experiments. Both are just trying to do what is expected instead of following their hearts. Will their love ever be given a a chance?

Written in the Elizabethan time period, Edwards stays true to what was going on at that time. It’s refreshing to read a book about something that could happen in real life, in face it’s so well written that it could be your life…if you lived during the time period and were a countess.
