Review: The Countess Conspiracy

The Countess Conspiracy - Courtney Milan

I finally did it. At last, I found a romance novel that I loved. Not that I like, but found the romance aspects chaffing. Not that was fun, but the romantic interest sucked. Not that was an okay way to spend the time. That I LOVED.

 

Because adorable scientists are adorable. 

 

And nothing is sexier than consent.

 

The first half was a bit slow, but the second half more than made up for it. OMG all the things. All the things. That happen. In the second half!

 

I think the only way this could have been better would be magic. Or knife fights? Whatever.

 

This is book 3 in a series of 4 novels and 3 shorter works. Looks like book 1 is free on Kindle (US) right now, so sold.
