The Countess Game by Deborah Cay Wilding follows the tale of Elizabeth Hartwell, a young woman who, under suspicion of being against the crown due to her cousin, is evicted from court and forced to flee with her aunt. She finds herself in the company and under the protection of Ashton Wentworth, the Earl of Haverdale, who seeks to restore his family's name and honor. But with the current political climate and with their equally complicated situation, things only become more twisted when Elizabeth and Ashton find themselves drawn to one another.
The Countess Game by Deborah Cay Wilding was a fun and amusing read, filled with drama and intensity. We are quickly introduced to the main characters in the first few chapters of the book while the setting for the plot is laid out. I instantly knew by the end of the first chapter that this was going to be a book that I would thoroughly enjoy and I did. I found all the interactions between Elizabeth and Ashton to be amusing, considering there would always be a bit of humor and wit thrown in no matter the dire circumstances. Both the main characters are strong-willed and have something to fight against or fight for within the plot and watching them fall in love despite the odds was such a pleasure. The pacing of the story was so well done and really allowed you to become immersed in the events. The Countess Game is a book that any lover of historical romance will love and I would definitely recommend giving it a read.
