THE COUNTESS AND THE CASANOVA
Ginny B. Moore
Henry needs no lessons in charm and wants none in art history, but a trip to Italy and a fake marriage teach him to be the man who can win Ellie’s heart.
Traveling to Italy to study art history is a fantasy fulfilled for Ellie, even if the only way to do it is to pretend to be married to her best friend–and notorious rake–Henry.
Widowed at twenty-four, Eleanor’s life lacks purpose and direction, the only bright spot being her annual Christmas visits with her dear friend Henry, the secret object of her affection. After her miserable marriage comes to a merciful end, she turns to him to find the adventure missing in her life. Posing as husband and wife will allow them to travel without causing a scandal, but when she raises the stakes by asking him to teach her how to be a good lover, she opens her guarded heart to be broken again.
Henry is London’s favorite idle nobleman and walking scandal, but few know the secret torment he carries in his soul. Helping Ellie travel to Italy raises his spirits for the first time in years, but comes at a cost–he will have to confront the shameful secret in their shared past and the terrible decision that may tear them apart.
Will Ellie and Henry find the love they are looking for in each other, or will their damaged pasts destroy their future?
The Countess and the Casanova is a steamy, open-door romance, perfect for lovers of witty banter, road trips, and the love that exists between best friends.

Ginny was the kid who loved kissing scenes in movies and always rooted for Mulder and Scully to hook up. Her first piece of writing, a horrendous fanfic romance based on The Three Musketeers when she was thirteen, will never see the light of day.
Ginny started writing romance with purpose in 2021 to avoid doom-scrolling social media and has never stopped. To pay the bills, she is a middle school assistant principal and has been in education for fifteen years. She has earned two master’s degrees, one in secondary education and another in school leadership. Most of her writing is done on her phone or in the parking lot of her kids’ extracurricular activities.
When she is not writing, Ginny is a very slow long-distance runner or making a dent in her endless “to be read” list. She is the mother of three kids, two exceptionally stupid dogs, two codependent cats, and the grandmother to a hermit crab.
