Review by Tiger Lily
One beautiful Englishwoman in peril, a volatile political atmosphere, and the oh-so-wicked aristocrat who offers to save her at all costs...
Lara Moore is neck deep in trouble. So deep she can fairly feel the noose tighten around her throat, but rescue in the form of one infamously charming nobleman is far from appealing. For one thing, he wants compensation in the form of sexual submission. Second, he is far too clever to fool. The devilishly handsome Comte Roussel isn't interested in being the one who pays, unless he collects back full measure.
Anton Garcin is privileged, wealthy, powerful, and thwarted at every turn in his pursuit of the beauteous Lady Edgerton. When he finally has her cornered, he isn't above using coercion to ensure seduction, but the results are not exactly as he expects. His government thinks the lady is dangerous. He discovers it is all too true...

Whether or not she’s a spy isn’t up for debate. Whether she’s infatuated with the Comte might be in question. Whether she’ll agree to become the Comte’s mistress, well, that’s guaranteed.

Lara Moore is one countess the French people want to know about and not because of her personal liaisons. They want to know if she’s a spy against Bonaparte. Anton Garcin couldn’t care less. He simply wants the cool and beautiful countess as his mistress. When Jacques Lacroux threatens her life, Anton makes the ultimate sacrifice: he offers Lara his protection.
I liked this novella because unlike many historicals, this one not only held my attention, but made me feel a part of the story. The scenes were rich with descriptions and lush with details. Although Anton came across as a rogue, he thought with his heart – which increased his sexiness. I also liked that Lara was independent yet yielded to Anton. She never lost her independent streak, which I found refreshing.
If you want a sweeping historical, lush with sex and handsome characters, then Incomparable is the novella for you. I give this work 4 ½ cherries.
