'His Hand-Me-Down Countess' by Sorcha Mowbray is the First Book in the New Series called "Lustful Lords". This is the story of Theodora Lawton and Achilles Denton, the Earl of Stonemere. Achilles and his friends are called the "Lustful Lords' by society and they have lived up to that name.
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.
