K Webster rocks historical romance!

I am not going to lie, when I finished Becoming Lady Thomas I had absolutely no love for Edith and I thought Alexander was nothing more than a pompous and arrogant player, albeit an extremely sexy, pompous and arrogant player. I went into this story with my mind made up on how I thought it should go, but because Ms. Webster is so very good at what she does, she changed my mind before I even knew it was happening. FYI, I liked her story way better than the one I

I remember when I first got this book in my hands, I sent K. Webster a message saying, you're going to make me like Edith, aren't you?? If you didn't already know this, I loathed Edith in the first book. I couldn't wrap my head around her actions...But, now we get Edith's story in Becoming Countess Dumont. We finally get to see the truth to her actions and why she acted the way that she did. There was so much more to Edith and I loved seeing her get a chance to redeem herself.

Once again, K. Web

I wanted to like this book more than I did. I get that we're supposed to sympathize with Edith, because in her mind she has equated love with sex. First, with her professor. Then, with William. She's desperate for love and looking for it in all the wrong places. And soon she realizes that she's never going to get the love she truly seeks but even lust and sex are better than nothing. And I do sympathize with her. What I couldn't get on board with was a lacking of true character development for b ...more

I thought it would be impossible for me to like Edith after her reprehensible ways in "Becoming Lady Thomas", but she grew on me. She made awful mistakes; mistakes that led her to the Earl of Havering, Alexander Dumont. Edith is a strong woman, who gives as good as she gets. Don't be fooled though, underneath the facade is a woman who wants love and her own happily ever after. She puts up a good front and Alexander proposes a mutually beneficially business deal when he realizes she could save hi ...more
I loved Becoming Mrs Thomas but this book was a real disappointment. The author took way too many liberties with the readers capacity to overlook improbabilities. As much as I wanted to, there was no way I could accept the transformations she forced down our throats. The absurd 360 degree changes in feelings, personality traits, behavior and beliefs ruined a possibly nice story.

And lord have mercy, how many times could these 2 have sex and repeat the same words to each other?? Theses are 2 peopl

Holy freakin heck! Author K is a beast and I love her! lol. Alexander and Edith are so emotionally damaged but they just GET each other! This series is amazing and I absolutely love all the characters. They all have their own dynamics and they just fit together perfectly. I've said it before and I'll say it again..... I will read anything Author K writes! No matter the genre it's always such a good read. It's super hot but besides that the story is amazing and you can connect to it and the chara ...more

I love how its a marriage of convenience turned lovers... You get a little bit more of Jasper and Elisabeth. And you find out more about Alexanders family. Great series

Book one was great! Book 2? BETTER! I love K. Webster and she has delivered some delicious historical romances! If you love HR or just K. Webster period, pick up this series!

This book was just utterly...mediocre. It's not like the first book in the series was a masterpiece of literature, but at least it was a fun piece of smut. Here I thought even the smut was mediocre, which is pretty sad. Neither the characters nor the plot captivated me. Thank goodness it was short-- otherwise it might have ended up as a DNF.
✨ 3.5 stars ✨

I enjoyed this one less than the first because of their arrangement conditions. But once they went home the story changed and as a reader I enjoyed it more.

I liked seeing glimpses of the couple from the first book too.

"I'll love you until I'm ashes in the dirt beneath the Earth. Then, I'll love you even more."

How do you go into a book despising a character and come out giddy and loving them? It JUST happened! K. Webster always writes multi-dimensional and appealing characters in all of her stories, but this one packed a surprise punch that I did not expect. In Becoming Lady Thomas, I set my mind to detest Edith. That thought quickly evaporated in Becoming Countess Dumont and was replaced with empathy. As has

"I slide a palm up her cheek and stroke her gently. This shouldn't feel so comfortable. However, I find myself relaxing and losing consciousness as I hold this woman. My wife.
When did things change?"

Holy WOW!!
After I read Becoming Lady Thomas, I was hooked! I had to know what happened to Edith and Alexander. Their story was just what I'd hoped it would be! Even if they started out as just an agreement, it didn't take long to see more in each other's eyes. Maybe it was something they saw all al

Story and Writing Style
Ugh, how trite of a story. The writing here, much like in the first story, was unexciting (and once again written in first person). Webster seems to think that throwing random cuss words around makes a story erotica. This was less of an issue in "Lady Thomas", so I'm wondering the intent behind the prolific use of profanity in this tome. Using "fucking" as an adjective really has to fit well for it to be effective. Her placement of this word, and other words, was more awkw

Edith Merriweather.
Is exactly how you will feel at the end of Becoming Lady Thomas and at the beginning of Becoming Countess Dumont and you're all set for hating her throughout the book too. Especially after what she done to her sister.

" I smile seductively at him. I told him all of the naughty things I wanted him to do to me. Since he was trying desperately to hold on to his virginity for Elisabeth, I thought I would relieve him of some of his pain."

I dragged my feet on starting to read this one because I'm not a fan of Edith. She came off as selfish, money hungry, calculating and willing to throw her sisters under the bus - not very admirable qualities in the oldest sister. Willingly agreeable to an arranged marriage for show with Alexander Dumont, Edith isn't deluding herself into thinking that this marriage is authentic with everlasting love, but at least she will be rich and able to do as she pleases as long as she plays the part.

As expected, there is more to the villain than meets the eye. After Becoming Lady Thomas many readers despised Edith. She redeems herself in her story. She desperately needs love and I think many of her actions result from that simple fact. Only sleeping around hasn't gotten her that love or adoration yet.

Alexander is a manly man, big, likes to fight, and likes his women. He and Edith enter into a marriage of convenience, through a contract, to fulfill Alexander's fathers requirements to get hi

"I hate Edith" that's what I thought when I finished Becoming Lady Thomas, I didn't think I could feel pity for her, but when I started reading Becoming Countess Dumont, I felt sorry for the things I yelled to my iPad, I felt bad for her. All she was looking for was love, of course, she was a total B at the beginning, but with time she understood what real Love was and tried to get Alexander to feel the same way.... I wanted to slap him a time ...or three. He was an arrogant playboy. But my my, ...more

K has done it again!! We met Edith in the first book in the series but we don't really know her. I don't think she knew herself really. Agreeing to become Countess Dumont was one of the greatest things for both Edith and Alexander. When we first met Edith I hated her. I didn't think redemtion would be possible for the evil whore. Shame on me for doubting the mad skills of K Webster. I grew to understand and love Edith. Alexander was harsh and seemed to be careless when it came to the feelings of ...more

When I finished the first book in the Becoming Her series, I really did not like Edith because of what she had done to her sister. I thought that Edith deserved Alexander because he was only out to make himself look good with his marriage to Edith. Well, it did not take me long to fall in love with both of these characters in this book!!!! K Webster has a way to get you so involved with the story and you feel like you are a part of the story!!!

Their story is one that slowly burns into hot passion, once Alexander and Edith realize what they have.

A quick read but it sucks you in. I couldn’t help but continue to turn the pages, not letting sleep or kids get in the way of reaching the conclusion of their love story.

Another great read, I can’t wait to see what happens next in “Becoming Mrs. Benedict”. Becoming Mrs. Benedict (Becoming Her, #3) by K. Webster

Becoming Countess Dumont was a very quick read for me. Edith and Alexander are two people that need to find trust again. Edith only wants someone to finally love her and Alexander wants to look better in his fathers eyes. Alexander and Edith begin to understand each other. Alexander and Edith are two characters that you love to hate but then you start to cheer for them. Have you ever wondered if someone can truly change and find their own HEA? Great read and I highly recommend.

I absolutely LOATHED Edith at first but changed my mind after reading her story.
She was absolutely redeemed and it turns out she is just very misunderstood. Alexander came across as a character I would also dislike but again my mind was changed. I fell in love with both of these characters and wish there was more of their story to read.
5 worthy stars.
