Publisher's Summary

A man with nothing to lose, and a woman with everything to gain - and neither trusts the other an inch….  

Count Anthony of Stratham almost drowned, and that's the second worst thing that happened to him this week. Now dragged into a courtroom battle with the owner of the ship that sank, the 28-year-old Count seizes his chance for a better life by blackmailing his adversary's daughter. All it takes is one invitation; all it takes is one night of passion.

But Nerissa isn't ready to be ruined, by the devilishly handsome count or anyone else, and she has more than enough tricks up her sleeve to take on the bankrupt lord. Will Count Anthony stick to his resolve to ruin and blackmail his archenemies daughter? Or will Nerissa discover that there is more than one way to survive a catastrophe with a count?

This is the seventh in a series of nine Ravishing Regencies. This is a steamy regency romance with a happily ever after, no cliffhangers, and part of a series that can be listened to in any order.

A hot period romance

Catastrophe with a Count is a hot period romance about a bankrupted count and the daughter of the man who helped cause his ruin. It’s a fun story, but like the rest of the stories in the book, the main point is to have the situation force two characters together so they can get intimate and fall in love. These are short stories that could probably benefit from more fleshing out. The Count in this particular story isn’t very likable with his arrogant self righteousness, and the girl is hopelessly naive.

Contains graphic sex scenes.

The narrator is pretty well suited to the stories, though her male voices could use work, and her narration in the sex scenes at times can be a bit embarrassing. I’m not certain how much of that is the writing and how much is the narration.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review.

4/5

I'm not a huge regency romance reader but this series is quite fun. I've read four books of this series and, while a bit formulaic, they are quite fun. I really liked Nerissa. She's funny, smart and sassy. Catastrophe with a Count is a fast-paced story that's great for a lazy afternoon.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntarr review.

When a disaster strikes... love blossoms

He came with vengeance in his heart, not realizing the man who he wanted to be punished for the misdeeds that had him penniless, would be the father of the woman that would enthral him.
Disaster after disaster, only seemed to bring them closer together.

Enemies to Lovers!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. Anthony survives a shipwreck but he has lost most of his money due to Nerissa's father. I love how Ms Murdoch develops this love story from one of revenge to hopefully one of true love. There will be problems along the way and a heart will be broken. There will also be a sensual love scene. The narrator does an outstanding job of portraying the emotions and conflicts of the characters. She was a pleasure to listen to. I highly recommend this Audible book.

Good!

A woman that knows what she wants is the sexist thing in the world. Nerissa knows what she wants and Anthony is what she wants.
Anthony loves her from the moment he say her but he didn’t know it until later. Will he give up on his revenge to keep her?
This is a great story. Love making on the beach. Narration is as always on point and brings the story to life!!

Loved it!

This is the seventh book of eight Ravishing Regencies, a steamy and fun historical romance. The story of Count Anthony of Stratham and Nerissa is entertaining and has twists and turns, with a beautiful ending. I loved it. Julia Eve did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed listening to this story.

The Count's a Rogue but Nerissa's a Queen

Wow! So many twists and turns had me holding on tight but I loved this book like the others. Ms. Murdoch created a hero I actually quite detested for about half the book yet in the end, we had the HEA the heroine so deserved. There were plenty of feelings but less sexuality in this story. As Ms.Murdoch also weaved the Earl from the final book smartly through this book, I'm so excited that I can't wait to read it!

Julia Eve renewed her role as the delightful narrator with some fun new accents in the mix since this story takes place in Jamaica. As always, she truly makes the tale be filled with life and enthusiasm.

From potential mistress to Countess

When placed in a difficult position, one must do whatever it takes to resolve the situation. Even if it means debauchery and deceit. But when the heart turns and truths are told, love can find its way home.

A lovely story and pleasant performance.

A very enjoyable listen

I don’t often listen to Regency Romances, so this is a review taking the story on its own merits, rather than compared with a genre.

It was an enjoyable steamy romance with plenty of emotional turmoil, anger, revenge and misunderstandings, all set in Jamaica.

It was beautifully read, the narrator moving through the story and the tangled emotions with a very listenable clarity and ease. She made the interior world of the characters in the story come alive vividly.

The lead, Nerissa, is an independent-minded woman pushing against the expectations of the day, and I particularly liked, again greatly helped by the narrator’s performance, the sense of authenticity in that characterisation.

If you’re looking for escapist fun, angst and passion set against a beautiful backdrop, then I fully recommend this audiobook!

A Regency Romance

This is a good creative romance story for those who love the Regency period. The author is good at creating believable characters and has a great imagination for a steamy story line. The narrator had an excellent voice and reads it very well.
