Publisher's Summary

Professor of Archeology Henrietta "Harry" Knight becomes Countess of Axedale upon her father's death and takes a sabbatical from Cambridge University to begin refurbishing the long-neglected and run-down Axedale Hall. The child of a loveless marriage, witness to her father's infidelities and her mother's pain, Harry has no intention of ever falling in love.

Annie Brannigan is a survivor, remaining positive through hardships. As an agency housekeeper, she moves from post to post with her daughter Riley, taking care of people who have everything she will never have. Annie's greatest wish is to find her happy ever after, but she fears this dream will never come true.

Can love restore the countess's heart and the crumbling Axedale Hall, or will the foundations of love turn to dust at the first challenge?

    "Loved It"

    Great story, and narration. This book was well detailed in the background of the story as well as teaching about Roman history. I'll be looking to read/listen to more of this author and narrator Nicola Victoria Vincent.

    "Very Enjoyable Listen."
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Courting the Countess. Very enjoyable listen. Great narration. These books by Jenny Frame are meant to be enjoyed. Nothing heavy here. Maybe someday reality will catch up w/ the scenarios depicted here. Loved "Harry", Annie and Riley. I would love hear more about them.

    "Excellent in every way!"

    Jenny Frame outdid herself here. I hope there is a sequel featuring more of Axdale's citizens! Great characterization, beautiful setting and of course build to romance. I'll listen to this one again.

    "Great story poorly read"

    I love this book and have read it several times. It's a wonderful story of how love in all its forms can transform a person.

    Unfortunately the reader for the audiobook really disappoints. Everything is fine until she voices the character of 10 year old Riley when her voice becomes loud and shrill ; so much so that it breaks you right out of the story.
