Being engaged to the most dashing bachelor in London isn’t all fun and games.
Lady Calantha, middle daughter of the Duke of Wey, has the unique ability to turn invisible in company. Well, not entirely invisible, or the eligible Frederick, Count Montalban, wouldn’t have noticed her at all. But Callie’s shy nature and plain features tend to make people overlook her. And they say the most outrageous things around her as a result, which is why she accidentally overhears strangers plotting to harm the count and his royal brother and father. What can a lady do but warn him?
Fritz, Count Montalban, is determined to keep his family safe. But he can’t drag Callie all over London to identify those plotting against them unless she has a reason to be alone with him. Pretending an engagement sounds like the perfect plan. After all, his dashing demeanor hides a wounded soul that demands he hold a true fiancée at a distance. But there’s something about Callie that pulls him closer.
As the danger grows along with their attraction, Fritz and Callie must work together to protect both their families, and Fritz finds his heart cracking open. Can he prove to the sweet Callie that she will never be invisible, to him?
Hott Review of Never Court a Count:
Never Court a Count is a peaceful romantic mystery that’s sure to satisfy.
When I started reading Never Court a Count I was coming off an illness and having trouble focusing but what really struck me was an emotional protectiveness for Callie. I just wanted to protect her, especially from Fritz, who I didn’t really like in the last book 🤷 Plus, I felt like he was taking advantage of her helpful spirit.
As we peak into both of their lives and their friendships we begin to see how special each of them are and how their unique personalities fit together so perfectly. I grew to love both of them as people. (These are two people I had to remind myself were fictional…)
By the end, I could absolutely say that reading Never Court a Count was worth every second! Don’t believe me? You can read an excerpt here: Never Court a Count

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She is now the author of more than 50 works of warm, witty historical romance.
She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.
