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?

Good story

I was hesitant because I thought it would be a period piece, but it was a great story with cute characters and good sex scenes.

Jenny Frame did it again.. What an amazing book.

So yes, I was on the edge of tears through this whole book. Such strong emotions, amazing chemistry between Annie and Henry, the character's were well developed and really enjoyable to follow. the narration was so well done I was hooked from the first chapter. I felt everything ,and for a while felt as if I was right there with them. This wonderful book is not a fall in. to bad and in love kinda book, Henry and Annie have to work past their fears, and build a True relationship. a romantically sexy courtship no one saw coming.
This is a must read... along with her other books all of which are amazing.

This is a wonderful audio book!

I have listened to hundreds of audio books...some of which are very good and some of which I think would be better to read due to horrible naration. This is definitely one of the best I have listened to...this story is full of love and emotion...you can feel it...the narration is one of the best I have ever heard....don't pass this book up...it's just that good!

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.

It's Good But....

1st a like the story, is very well written and very well narrated.... My issue is than at times i was frustrate about the main character with **SPOILER** commitment issues and family stuff, everything is not her fault, her behavior the way she thinks is her parents fault... its just kinda ANNOYING The Countess.

Enjoyed the lot

Not as well polished as others in genre but still a very enjoyable experience. Predictable but comforting, warming the heart with lovable characters. I’d like to move to Axdale if it existed.

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.
