Signet, Nov 2003, 6.99, 352 pp.
In 1859, Evan Mackenzie arrives at his Scottish earldom without any fanfare. He loves the area, but has not been back in a decade since his mom walked out on his father. Now inheriting the Kildonan keep, he hopes to retract some of the practices that hurt the estates, but first he must pay off debts accrued by his father. He plans to use his engineering salary to do so.
While climbing down a mountainside a storm hits. Evan falls and passerby Catriona MacConn saves his life. However, her father finds them in a compromised position though nothing happened and they were just trying to stay warm during the freezing night. He offers to marry her, but she is wary especially when she learns he is the new earl. After she becomes his countess, they become better acquainted, and fall in love. However, she has a secret quest involving her family and he struggles with guilt over the deaths that occured on a bridge that he designed so their marriage remains on shaky ground and could implode at any moment
KISSING THE COUNTESS is an engaging historical romance starring two charming lead protagonists who on the surface seem wrong for each other, but deep inside make a perfect match. The story line engages the audience from the moment Catriona drags Evan to a flimsy shelter.
