Regency-era England may be a man's world, but a lady boss is about to show them how it's done! In the newest of her witty, Regency-set, feminist romances exploring the roles of women in a rigidly patriarchal society, acclaimed author Minerva Spencer makes the cut with loner Jo "Blade" Brown, a circus performer who's as deadly with a knife as her nickname suggests. A new generation of readers and Bridgerton fans will delight in the rapier sharp wit, sexual fireworks, and thought-provoking entertainment of The Cutthroat Countess. Before Josephine Brown began working as a blade expert for Farnham's Fantastical Female Fayre, she'd never stayed put for long. She'd never had friends, either. Nor had she allowed herself to open her heart to a man. Yet now, as part owner of the circus, she's suddenly forming real friendships. And then there is her attraction to clever, handsome Honorable Elliot Wingate--whose life she happened to save. After forever fleeing her past, the last man she should choose is one who ferrets out secrets on behalf of King and Country . . . Elliot was fascinated by Jo "Blade" Brown even before he witnessed her lethal gifts, firsthand. He's never met a woman who is such an intoxicating combination of self-sufficiency, beauty, and mystery. He's never been in love before, but there is no denying he's fallen hard. Yet each time Elliot tries to get closer to Jo, she slips farther away. If he reveals what's in his heart, will he risk driving her away for good? As their investigation--and her feelings for Elliot--stir up Jo's deeply buried, extremely dangerous secrets, she'll have to decide whether to run once again, or trust somebody at last . . .Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Minerva SpencerPublisher: Kensington Publishing CorporationPublished: 10/24/2023ISBN: 9781496738134Pages: 304Weight: 0.81lbsReview Citations: Booklist 09/15/2023 pg. 26Publishers Weekly 09/25/2023Library Journal 09/01/2023 pg. 80
