Countess of Scandal
As children, Eliza Blacknall and William Denton ran wild over the fields of southern Ireland and swore they would be friends forever. Then fate took Will away to England, while Eliza stayed behind to become a proper Irish countess.

Years later, Will finally makes his way home-as an English soldier sent to crush the Irish uprising. When he spies the lovely Eliza, he is captivated by the passionate woman she has become. But Eliza's passions have led her to join the Irish rebel cause, and Will and Eliza now find themselves on opposite sides of a dangerous conflict.

When Ireland explodes in bloody rebellion, Will's regiment is ordered to the front lines, and he is forced to choose between his duty to the English king and his love for Eliza and their Irish homeland.

My Thoughts:
I normally don't read historical romance. The cover of this book caught my attention and I just had to see if I could really get into it. To my surprise I couldn't put it down. I stayed up all night reading just to find out what Eliza would get into next, and if Will would surface again.
This is not just a love story, but at tale of the struggles faced when a rebellion is on the horizon. 
Between being on the side of the rebellion and loving an officer sworn by duty to stop said rebellion, can the two ever really just be together?
The ending has me wanting to read the next book "posthaste" and I know it will be a very long wait.
