Synopsis

Synopsis

Edith Merriweather has done deplorable things in her past, including breaking her younger sister’s heart by betraying her in the most unforgiveable way. Edith is ready to come clean and beg for forgiveness when a handsome stranger enters her life.

He offers her an escape from reality, where she is destined to be a poor, single woman for the rest of her years. This man entices her with a contract she simply cannot refuse.

The great Earl of Havering, Alexander Dumont, has chosen to wed Edith.

But not because the playboy loves her. No, Alexander needs a wife in order to convince his father that he’s settled down and capable of inheriting their exorbitant amount of wealth. He promises to lavish Edith with his riches and indulge her in any desire she could ever want, including allowing her to have as many lovers as she so pleases. And the most appealing part of it all is she’ll also become a countess.

Together, Alexander and Edith conspire to pull off one of the greatest deceptive acts of their time.

Somewhere along the way, though, the lines of their faux marriage become blurred and something altogether foreign enters the picture.

Love.

Will becoming Countess Dumont weaken Edith’s heart, which she’s always kept protected under a hard, callous outer shell? And if Alexander breaks her vulnerable heart, will she be able to continue the sham of their marriage or reveal the falsehood to his father?

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

“I’ll love you until I’m ashes in the dirt beneath the Earth. Then, I’ll love you even more.”

How do you go into a book despising a character and come out giddy and loving them? It JUST happened! K. Webster always writes multi-dimensional and appealing characters in all of her stories, but this one packed a surprise punch that I did not expect. In Becoming Lady Thomas, I set my mind to detest Edith. That thought quickly evaporated in Becoming Countess Dumont and was replaced with empathy. As has been said in other famous literature, “The game is afoot.” But, in the game there are winners and losers, and Edith is afraid of which she will become.

“I feel as if I’m drawn to you like a fly to honey. Your magnetism allures me in a way that confuses me. But I crave it nonetheless.”

The trials of new marriage are hard enough without adding more weight from the past and present. We are originally introduced to Alexander and Edith in Becoming Lady Thomas, Book 1 of the Becoming Her series. Edith is Elizabeth’s older sister. Alexander is Jasper’s friend and confidante. Edith is jaded. To her, love is a facade. Nothing more than words. And she is none too innocent in proving this outcome. She has had her own fair share of mischievousness, and our eyes become enlightened to exactly what depth her deceit has travelled. Alexander doesn’t quite know what to do with a woman like Edith. But he won’t tolerate others treating her in an ill manner. He has a mixed state of emotions with her, causing us to wonder how this couple can possibly make this crazy scheme work. Together they are fire and ice. Both fierce elements, seemingly working against one another, but both from the same thread in life. We are taken from one extreme of emotions to the other in this read, coming to the conclusion that love saves, awakens, and renews.

“This is the most delicious thing I have ever tasted, Alexander. I could lick up every morsel and never be satisfied for I would always crave more.”

Becoming Countess Dumont was crafted in typical K. Webster fashion. It was hot, sexy, snarky, and full of love; everything in a book that makes my heart happy . Edith and Alexander’s story was another beautiful addition to her historical romance collection. Outside of their relationship, Edith also developed a fondness for another character in the story, which, in my opinion was one of the most beautiful developments. I felt like it solidified her path with definitive direction. There were so many moments that just made me stop and smile with a goofy grin on my face. The fast pace of the story and moments of retrospect made me fall further in love with every word on each page.

“You filled a part of me that was incomplete. Without you, I’m nothing.”
