Achilles older brother, Odysseus has died and now he is the Earl of Stonemere.
Achilles never thought to take the title but now he has it. Along with the Title is seems he has his brother's future bride. Achilles knows he has to marry to carry on the Title for his family and he might as well marry Theo as another women.
Theo is very smart and with her Pin Money has bought land and worked some business deals. Although Theo doesn't want to get married she knows it will open her up to more freedom for her endeavors. Theo and Achilles have met and shared a few society dances but neither really knows the other. Theo knows that she is attracted to Achilles but when it comes closer to their time to actually marry, she ask him if they could not get to know each other better.
Achilles finds Theo shy and somewhat attractive at first but when he starts to get to know her, her mind and her temperament he finds she is irresistible. But she would be shocked at his physical needs...or would she?
In addition to their hot romance there is someone trying to kill Achilles which is adding to the story line in the book.
This is my first book by Ms. Mowbray but I plan on reading more books as soon as I can!

Review: Ok - where is my fan, because OMG His Hand-Me-Down Countess is super hot! I have read many historical romances set in 19th century England to get the pattern (I am working on a post just about this topic check it out on Saturday) - she's a virgin and worried she's going to be ruined- oh but he has a sexual past and can she handle it? (oh sorry - was that a yawn?). This is such a prevalent pattern, it has impacted my reviews - if I give it a 1 for the amount of hot and steamy (sorry Amazon has rules about certain words). That usually means it was 1 time, maybe 2 rolls in that hay in the barn or in the field. I still enjoy those stories because they are fun if the author does enough to make the obstacles the two lovers have to overcome worth reading.
With that said, His Hand-Me-Down Countess doesn't fit the pattern at all - thank goodness! Stone is part of a group of men who frequent at a club that allows their patrons to dabble in anything that meets their fancy (ding, ding big clue about historical novels). The first chapter does a great job of taking the reader into the club and enjoying the exploits of these lustful lords - who definitely like sharing women, domination, and sometimes each other. Stone is about to marry a lovely girl, Theo, who was supposed to marry Stone's brother but darn it, he died and now Stone is the earl. The marriage takes place quickly, but not without showing innocent Lady Theo what is to come with her marriage to Stone as he shows her the ways of passion without technically ruining her.
Theo is a very likable character. She has her own investments, she funds an orphanage, and most importantly, dear reader, she's curious and wants to make her new hubby happy. Most of the book is with our young lovers as they discover themselves and what at the time would probably be considered depraved behavior - oh lordy! The book does have a conflict that keeps it entertaining, but the clear crux of the book is the relationship between Stone and Theo. Hot, steamy, and panty melting - by far one of the best historical romances I've read!
