Publisher's Summary

Sebastian Malheur is the most dangerous sort of rake: an educated one. When he’s not scandalizing ladies in the bedchamber, he’s outraging proper society with his scientific theories. He’s desired, reviled, acclaimed, and despised - and he laughs through it all. Violet Waterfield, the widowed Countess of Cambury, on the other hand, is entirely respectable, and she’d like to stay that way. But Violet has a secret that is beyond ruinous, one that ties her irrevocably to England’s most infamous scoundrel: Sebastian’s theories aren’t his. They’re hers. So when Sebastian threatens to dissolve their years-long conspiracy, she’ll do anything to save their partnership...even if it means opening her vulnerable heart to the rake who could destroy it for good.
The books in the Brothers Sinister series:

So much more than a romance

If you could sum up The Countess Conspiracy in three words, what would they be?

Thoughtful, sweet, unique.


Any additional comments?

This one's for the girls. For every smart woman out there who has ever felt that her intellect somehow diminishes her lovability. For every woman who has struggled to conceive a child or maintain a relationship. This is a tremendous book. The romance is touching, the characters are well drawn, and the humor sparkles, but that's only part of the story here. The emotions are raw, and you'll feel every bit of what Violet is feeling. This is a book that's mostly about the triumph of the human spirit, and the ability of women to succeed even in a world that doesn't acknowledge their successes. I can't say too much more without giving away key plot elements, but this is a glorious tale.

Historical fiction with very little romance...

This has been the only Courtney Milan book I haven't enjoyed. This isn't really a romance story, it's more historical fiction. It's the story of Violet and how she went through a journey of self acceptance, she fought for women's rights and equality and found love on the way. The romance is very mild and I got bored hearing about the inheritance of traits in plants. Not even the amazing narration saved this story for me. I do not recommend it. All the other books in The Brother Sinister series are excellent thought.
