Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Cinderella??"
    What does Stevie Zimmerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Stevie Zimmerman plays each character beautifully! Its like watching a movie.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    I love how Miss Rogers writes and I am very grateful I can read a good story without R rated scenes. Its like reading a Jane Austen . That is far and few in-between, So thank you Miss Rogers I can't wait to see more of your books!

    Story
    "Jessamine's Folly"

    I enjoyed this book very much, both in the ebook and now audiobook formats. I felt for Jessamine, and found myself hoping she and Lord Kirkendale could get their happy ending. Do they? You'll have to listen to find out!

    Sweet and providing just a hint of Gothic and attention to period details, the characters are well-drawn and I particularly liked the early 20th century period details. fans of late Victorian romance will find this a satisfying 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!

    Story
    "Wonderful melodrama and great romance"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jessamine of course. Enduring, and romantic without being sappy.


    What about Stevie Zimmerman’s performance did you like?

    She always brings characters amazingly to life and her accents are perfect. She's my go to narrator.

    "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.

    "Cinderella variation!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I decided to listen to this one after enjoying the author's "Spinster" so much. It's a Cinderella kind of variation. It's a little more flawed if one is looking for relative believability or strict historical accuracy, but still nothing glaring & it's so well done that it's easy to just tell the left side of your brain to shut up and let the right side enjoy!

    Narrator's voice is a bit weak on male voices, but is tolerable & otherwise, she does well.

    Thankfully it is also a fairly clean romance with just some intense kissing scenes, no petting or groping or graphic garbage.

    I'll be continuing to look for more by this author!
