Publisher's Summary

The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-after....
Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well. So she decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened....
Until the real earl appears. Richard Fairgrave had every intention of confronting his villainous twin who had robbed him of his name and title - only to discover that he had died. Quietly assuming his identity, Richard must now deal with a maddening desire for his ravishing inherited "wife" - certainly a gold digger and possibly a murderess. And Christiana must deal with an unwanted new "husband"... and they both must figure out what to do before the ice melts!

I'm with the majority on this book....I thought it was funny and entertaining. It was romantic with just enough silly humor to keep me smiling. It is a good escape when you need some silly in your life. I realize everyone has a different sense of humor but if you enjoy silly romantic fun then you will enjoy this! If you enjoy only serious romances all the time then you probably need a good laugh. Try laughing sometime its good for you!!

The Countess most enjoyable

Would you listen to The Countess again? Why?

Probably. Very entertaining.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Countess?

When Richard showed up at the ball.

Which scene was your favorite?

Love scene with Dickie's body in the bed.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

At first, the narrator was a bit of a distraction with a strong accent, but I changed my mind and found her to be a delightful reader. I enjoyed her very much....she was especially great with her change of voice for each character.

Any additional comments?

Some parts I found quite "steamy". Loved it. Kept my mind off of my everyday worries.
