After her estate is entailed away, Jessamine Foster has no choice but to live with relatives who detest her. When her aunt gives her an ultimatum to leave, Jessamine accepts a position as companion to Lord Kirkendale's sister - even though she's been warned her predecessors can't seem to resist the earl's exceptional good looks. Can Jessamine manage to hold on to her job without losing her heart?
To honor a promise made to his dying father, Lord Kirkendale agrees to an arranged marriage to a woman he cannot love. Although he is resigned to a life without sentiment, the arrival of his sister's new companion awakens a slumbering passion. Can he find a way to secure his own happiness without sacrificing his family's honor, or will his broken promise result in the ruination of the person he loves most?

"Delightful, Fun and Clean!"
I really enjoyed Jessamine's Folly. Just when I thought is was going to be a bit predictable the author threw in a twist! It was a delight to listen to a clean romance with a bit of mystery as well. Characters were well developed, some loveable and others that were just nasty. All performed well by the narrator. I was very glad there was an epilogue.
I love this type of book
and this one was very interesting and I like the characters and I like the reader . Since I buy a lot of audio books to download the reader is very important to me . The author did a good job and I thoroughly enjoyed it
"Great historical romanice."
This is one of the best books I have read since the early days of Nora Roberts and Judith Mac Naught.
Jessamine, because she is a strong woman without coming across masculine or play one up on the male protagonist.
I loved the parts in the book where her ,"Aunt", is involved.
I did listen to it in one sitting.
Please write more historical romance novels, Ms. Rogers.
"An intriguing read"
The story has a lot of plots and turns to keep it very interesting. I totally enjoyed reading this book.
"Loved this story"
I will definitely read more by this wonderful storyteller. 5 stars for author and narrator. Do listen !!!
"More Suzanne G. Rogers, Please"
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The theme wasn't all that new, which is fine with me because a good story can be told in so many different ways, but the depth of feeling from all of the characters was very good - in the villans as well as the heros. Love the twists here and there. I hope audible brings more Suanne G Rogers books to its store!
"Wonderful melodrama and great romance"
Jessamine of course. Enduring, and romantic without being sappy.
She always brings characters amazingly to life and her accents are perfect. She's my go to narrator.
"Overall good read"
Starts out very sad but in a small amount of time grabs your interest and you can't put it down. Unique read. Very enjoyable.
"A different plot to a historical story. "
I loved the twist and turns that happened. You would think one thing was going to be it, but then something else would occur.
"What an unexpectedly delightful gem!!!"
An exceptionally well written historical romance , with added suspense for even more drama and excitement as the story unfolds.
The interactions between the characters were very engaging and made the storyline flowed smoothly and effortlessly to a very satisfying and delightful conclusion.
The narrator's voice was a perfect fit and made the listening even more pleasing.
