The Desires of a Countess by Jess Petersen

The Desires of a Countess by Jess Petersen.

This is book 3 in the Jordans series.  The heroine is the sister of Audrey from The Secrets of a Lady and Noah from The Temptation of a Gentleman.

Ginny Blanchard is finally able to live a more independent life after her abusive husband has passed away. Unfortunately, her late husband's cousin has come to over see the estate and her son's fortune.

Simon Webber is just doing his family duty by checking up on his late cousin's son and wife. When he arrives, Ginny shows him her displeasure and does everything in her power to get him to leave including making him stay in a cottage that has a massive hole in it.

Simon is unwilling to forget the attraction between the two of them at their first meeting and decides to fix up his new home and get to know the widow a little better.

As much as Ginny is attracted to Simon, she has her reasons for not wanting to get involved with him. After her husband's death, Ginny vowed never to get involved with another man. All she needs is her son. She is also hiding a secret that would make any man run away from her.

I really enjoyed this novel. If you've read the other two books in the series, Ginny is mentioned several times. She is always referred to as the sister that was made to marry and that she had an unhappy marriage. Because of this, she was estranged from her family. It was nice to see a family reunion and that Ginny was finally able to marry for love.  There was also a small secondary love story, which I love as you kinda get 2 for the price of 1!

You can get this book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.
