It’s such a pleasure to introduce my latest book to you all.

COURTING THE COUNTESS from Endeavour Press went up on amazon platforms this morning.

Courting the Countess is my take on the Beauty and The Beast myth and features Melissa, Lady Pateley who has lost her beauty in a fire. She has become an object of desire, however, for many unscrupulous men who would marry her and use her wealth. Falling back on loyal servants and her own innate strength, Melissa responds to Colonel Harry Gunn, a retired army doctor. Can he, handsome and charismatic, persuade Melissa life will be worth living again? Can he overcome his own uncertainties along the way?

Courting the Countess is available here for UK buyers and here for US.



  1. This sounds a great idea, Anne – looking forward to reading it! Would you like a slot on my blog to promote it – maybe a post about the inspiration behind the story or something like that. Haven’t had an author on for ages.


  2. Many congratulations, Anne. I’ve just finished reading Courting the Countess and was entertained, yet again, by your natural wit and warmth which shines bright in your writing. I love your idea of adapting a traditional fairy tale, having Melissa as your physically damaged character made a refreshing change. It’s a while since I’ve read Regency Romance but your descriptions of regency Edinburgh has definitely left me wanting more. Looking forward to reading book number 5! : )
