It is my pleasure to feature Author Donna Hatch’s latest romance, Courting the Countess, on my blog today. I have to admit that I dug into it the same day I received my review copy and stayed up all night reading it. Such a fantastic story!
But first, let’s get to know Ms. Hatch.
Donna Hatch is the author of the best-selling “Rogue Hearts Series,” and a winner of writing awards such as The Golden Quill and the International Digital Award. A hopeless romantic and adventurer at heart, she discovered her writing passion at the tender age of 8 and has been listening to those voices ever since. She has become a sought-after workshop presenter, and also juggles freelance editing, multiple volunteer positions, and most of all, her six children (seven, counting her husband). A native of Arizona who recently transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, she and her husband of over twenty years are living proof that there really is a happily ever after.

My review: Having read two other Regency romances right before settling down to this one probably wasn’t my best decision (Regency isn’t my favorite genre but I’m a marriage-of-convenience junkie) but I can honestly say that I stayed up all night to finish this story. It was different enough from the there that the characters and plot kept me interested. I loved both Richard’s and Lady Elizabeth’s plights, although I kept hoping that Elizabeth’s feelings for Tristan would fade more quickly than they did. My heart hurt for Elizabeth when Richard emotionally distanced himself from her just after their wedding due to a misunderstanding, especially since that had worked so hard to form a bond beforehand. However, I was glad to see the story advance through their marriage, since some authors make the mistake of relying solely on the engagement period to carry the plot. I enjoyed watching their love for each other grow and change. This book is a sure winner for anyone who loves Regency/clean romance.
