Publisher's Summary

Can a notorious rake seduce the ice mistress? 

Married to the unfaithful Earl of Lowry and scorned by her in-laws for not producing an heir for the earldom, Gertrude "Gertie" Farrington takes out her frustrations in the masked underground world of Madame Botreaux's Cavern of Pleasures. Concealing her identity there as "Lady Athena", Gertie is a domineering mistress with a peculiar propensity: She never allows a submissive to bring her to climax. 

Back from years of exile after a scandalous duel, Lord Phineas Barclay, a notorious rake and seducer of women, becomes instantly intrigued by the Lady Athena on a visit to the Cavern of Pleasures. He poses as a submissive with the intention of seducing the icy mistress and uncovering her true identity. 

As the Countess of Lowry, Gertie wants nothing to do with Phineas Barclay -- a debaucher at best, and a murderer at worst. So why does she find herself hot and flustered in his presence? 

Phineas Barclay finds himself strangely drawn to the Countess, but every step forward with her seems to be followed by a step backward with the Lady Athena. Which woman will he choose to conquer? 

Recommended but not required prequel: Lord Barclay's Seduction.

A hit

This is a story about Gertie who is married to Alexander. It is a loveless marriage. Her sister in-law & mother in-law also view her with scorn. Gertie is a dominatrix in secret. She meets Alexander’s cousin. The 2 families do not socialize nor do they have any regard for each other. Gertie becomes Phineas’ favorite dominatrix. Both Gertie & Phineas do not recognize each other but become fascinated with each other. The story goes into how their relationship evolves. I sat on the edge of my seat wondering what each chapter would bring. It is a captivating story. Em Brown is a wonderful story teller she is one of my favorites. Please do yourself a favorite and take a journey with Gertie & Phineas. You will not be disappointed.

Who is behind the mask?

Em Brown does a wonderful job of narrating her own work in Conquering the Countess. This is book is hard for me to review and not include a spoiler so I'll proceed with caution...and no spoiler. If Victorian Era erotic romance is something you know you enjoy or think you might find appealing this is a great read. If steamy sex with a side of kink isn't your reading genre then you might want to head to another book. I think this would rate as my favorite Em Brown book thus far.

Worth a Credit

Deliciously decadent, and very hot with a good story in between. The narrator does a good job bring the characters to life. Worth it.

Just Great!

A story of two established and credible main characters, a stimulating plot, and good discussion, a bit of conspiracy and uncertainty. It also had some sensitive scenes around our assumed female protagonist. I can’t stop listening to it. A great listen!

One of My Personal Favorite

Ms. Brown’s stories are lovely and I have listened to quite a number of them and this one is just amazing for me. It shows helplessness and empathy. You’ll both love Phineas and Gertie.

Steamy Historical Romance

I love the way the author conveys a story of a steamy historical romance between Gertie and Phineas Barclay. They are un knowingly drawn to each other. So, who seduces the best? Such a must read.

Hot and Steamy

If you want some BDSM with moderation then this audio is the right one for you. If you like your story hot and steamy then this is it. Good job to Em Brown.

A Remarkable and Kinky Story

The author is an remarkable storyteller, making stories of characters who are faulty but sturdy, erotic, keen and lovely in their failures. This audio is quite naughty and portray scenes of light to slight BDSM features so if this makes you queasy than maybe this isn't the book for you but if you like a little ill-disciplined in your characters than stop and don't go any further because you have found the author for you!! Great job, Em Brown!

Hard to follow at first. But worth it in the end!

I enjoyed the story all though it was hard to get past the build up of the Characters and all the names. Once that was establishes the story was great. The reader had a great voice for the story but it sometimes lulled me to sleep and I had to back up to catch up to where I was.

Overall it was a fun “read”

Loved it!

I loved this audible. This audible causes you to believe true love again. The dynamic between Phineas, Gertie and therefore the supporting characters cause you to think and begin to research a number of your relationships. i'm volunteering to go away a review for an ARC of this audible.

Thrilling

The sex scenes were thrilling but for me, Lady Athena and Hepa were more exciting. Gertie and Phineas were both intense and passionate about each other. Good sex scenes between them. It was a pretty hot audio.

Better than expected.

I enjoyed this book rather a lot. I thought it was well written, held my interest and was honestly a joy to listen to.
The story was fun, the characters were delightful and the sex scenes were steamy and realistic, not far fetched.
I personally would have preferred a narrator with a British accent for this book but I still really enjoyed Em's narration. I think I would have preferred her reading a different book as I did enjoy listening to her.
For me it didn't take anything away from listening to this this book though, I still really liked it. I'm just spoiled having listened to other books that use British narrators that do many different accents as well as various voices for their characters.
Having said that, this book and the narration was still great and it was well worth listening to.
