I read Eva Ibbotson’s A Countess Belowstairs and really enjoyed it, and then went and bought her other books. Just finished The Morning Gift. I really loved both those books. They are very sweet. Also just finished Victoria Dahl’s new one, The Rake’s Guide to Pleasure. It’s been a long time since a romance has moved me so much. A Countess Below Stairs () Anna Grazinsky is a Russian countess who must flee to England after World War I when the Bolsheviks take over. Anna leaves Russia with her governess, Pinny, and decides that she must work since her family’s fortune seems to have been lost.

How to Capture a Countess has its funny moments but it also has a hero who I found to take himself way to seriously and the game of one-up-manship between the leads got a little old. This story had a great beginning, when teen aged Rose Balfour finally had the opportunity to garner Lord Alton Sinclair's (Lord Sin) attention she was beyond thrilled/5(49). The Secret Countess (also known as A Countess Below Stairs) opens in , when Anna Grazinzky, daughter of the Count and Countess Grazinsky, is growing up in dazzling Belle Époque St second chapter, however, takes us straight to , after the war and the revolution forced Anna’s family into exile.
