    1. Too bad this book languished on my TBR for such a long time. I really liked it!✔ Doctor is a hero who cares for the poor but still used the knowledge of the time - no advocating methods that hadn't been discovered yet!✔ The heroine was experienced - no simpering miss! - and ruthless enough to do whatever it takes to protect her family.✔ Heroine was freaking afraid of illnesses - as a any normal person should be, specially during that time, when if you weren't careful, an infected toenail c [...]


    2. My Favorite Countess explains in a delightfully awesome manner why a woman from a previous story was such an unbearable and nasty harridan and how she ends up deserving the love and acceptance she gets in this book. Once I realized who this book was about I was all excited with anticipation and the author met every one of my hopes as the plot unfolded. Lady Randolph, Bathsheba, truly earned the title of heroine. She’s a woman of her time who has been dealt with an overabundance of bad luck, sa [...]


    3. The unfortunately named sheep, Batsheba, is not verra accepting of his profession (Obstetrician). Per doctor's orders, nauti John can board my rusty ship & detonate me w/ his medically certified staff.


    4. I loved this sexy, passionate story pitting a worldly widow, desperate to keep her family from losing everything, against an up and coming doctor/midwife who treats both the wealthy of Mayfair and the poverty-stricken of St. Giles. Bathsheba isn't an easy heroine to love, but the fact that she is all too human made her a refreshing change from the typical angelic historical heroine. She unrepentantly enjoys sex. She does not suffer fools gladly. And she speaks her mind. I loved that she had real [...]


    5. I was not, under any circumstances, going to purchase, never mind read, this story because I so hated Bathsheba from the previous book SEX AND THE SINGLE EARL, where Bathsheba nearly destroyed the relationship between Simon and Sophie. Butothers who follow the blogs I follow seemed to think this was a wonderful story, so I relented and purchased a copy for myself - but I was determined only to read it for the sole purposes of placating my own feelings about BathshebaWell, I read it, and surprisi [...]


    6. I so loved this book. The sparks between Dr. John Blackmore and the Countess of Randolph is so electrifying.The Countess of Randolph swore she would never let another man rule over her. She was in love with her first husband however, that loved he used against her to keep her in line. He was a crazy jealous man and had fetishes that Bathsheba The Countess was appalled by.The Ton believed the stories and rumors about her. But she doesn't let that stop her. When circumstances leads Bathsheba to ha [...]


    7. Engaging story about the redemption of a woman who has made grave mistakes and earned people's dislike, although she has had to deal with some tragic situations not of her making. Bathsheba had a vile husband, she feels huge guilt over the fact that her mentally-crippled sister is in care (but not with her) and she is in severe financial difficulty. She decides that she has to nab herself a rich husband to solve her financial difficulties, but falls for an idealistic doctor instead. Everything w [...]


    8. This is my first Vanessa Kelly book, and it certainly won't be the last. This is not your traditional, predictable historical romance with balls and teas and carriage rides. This is gritty, real life and features two characters I would never have expected in a story with a Countess on the cover. The heroine is a widow who, at first blush, is extremely unlikeable. She's arrogant, sharp-tongued, and rude. The only reason the ton puts up with her is because she's so beautiful and because of her tit [...]


    9. Bathsheba, countess yg sudah menjanda sedang kalang kabut mencari suami baru utk menutupi utang menggunung lahan yg diwarisi dari suaminya. Tiba-tiba dirinya jatuh sakit krn memikirkan tanggungjawab yg hrs dipikulnya, terpaksa dia membiarkan dirinya dirawat dan disembuhkan oleh si dokter tampan, John Blackmore. Dan keduanya jelas saling tertarik. Blackmore berniat menikahi Bathsheba, tetapi Bathsheba memiliki banyak pertimbangan. Ketika Bathsheba diajak berkeliling daerah kumuh tempat Blackmore [...]


    10. RATING: 4.5)MY FAVORITE COUNTESS by Vanessa Kelly is an exciting historical romance set in 1817 London and 1817 Compton Manor,Yorkshire. It will written with depth and details.The characters are not only enchanting,charming but also obstinate,demandingat times,difficult at times and quite fierce. When Bathsheba meets Dr. John Blackmore she never expected to feel not only a sensual pull toward the good Dr. Blackmore but to also,dare I say, fall in love with him.For, Bathsheba,the Countess of Rand [...]


    11. This book had an incredible good premise, very interesting and original characters, and some original conflicts. Unfortunately the writing voice started to irritate me after a while, there were just so many adjectives I mean, I do not particularly need to know that the hill of Sheba's palm is plump, and it definitely doesn't need repeating. Especially in the more steamy scenes, the adjectives were out of control.The pacing seemed a bit off at times as well, especially in the last chapters, where [...]


    12. I really and truly highly recommend this book. Vanessa is really a fantastic writer. My Favorite Countess will draw you in from the beginning, so much so that you won't want to put it down. And, the sex scenes are absolutely RED HOT!!! This book will appeal to all readers that love Historical Romance. In 1817, Widow Bathsheba Compton cannot enjoy her new marital status as she cannot pay her abusive late husband's major debt, nor pay for the care of her mentally disturbed sister who she never see [...]


    13. With an intriguing transformation of villainess to heroine and a doctor hero who captured this reader's heart--and her mind, Vanessa Kelly added another keeper to my library. Look for my full review at Just Janga (March 10, 2011):justjanga/2011/03



    14. The third of the Stanton family bundle. The author managed to do the impossible and successfully made the conniving mistress from the previous book the heroine. I think this is just a masterful effort. Bathsheba, Lady Randolph, is a flawed and intriguing heroine. I am soooo thankful she didn’t end up with Simon.


    15. 3.5 stars. At times predictable, but enjoyable. Definitely a good diversion for a few days, so I can take a breather from the heart crushing force of "small great things". I liked getting a little back story on man midwifery in the 1800's, the author did her research and created a good character John Blackstone.



    16. (This review was originally posted on Book Lovers Inc)My Favorite Countess was a difficult book to review for me. When I started re-reading the notes I took while reading the book, I started wondering if I was dealing with 2 different books. The first half of my notes were mostly rants about how I hated the Hero and the Heroine, the second half of my notes were about how amazing they were and how I loved the story. LOL see what I mean? Alright, let's start from the beginningWhen we meet Bathsheb [...]


    17. This is actually my first Vanessa Kelly book. My Favorite Countess is a historical romance and a continuation of sorts from some of Vanessa's other books. I think you can feel a sense of this reading the book but it didn't interfere much with the story. Widowed Bathsheba is in a bad way. She's almost out of money and is struggling to maintain appearances as The Countess of Randolf. Her husband was killed and left her mountains of debt and two estates to maintain. She is full of secrets as well. [...]


    18. Ceritanya mengalir dengan menakjubkan. Vanessa Kelly termasuk pengarang baru yang diterbitkan oleh penerbit Indonesia. penerjemah yang menerbitkan buku ini melakukan tugasnya dengan baik dengan menyusun jalinan kata terjemahan menjadi satu buku tanpa celah. Sayangnya buku yang ternyata adalah edisi Straton buku ke-3 ini diterbitkan yang pertama. Sempat curiga saat baca ada kejadian kejadian tipikal hubungan buku sebelumnya. Tapi overall buku ini bagusss banget. ! Dimulai dari John Blackmore- seo [...]


    19. It’s killing me that I can’t remember which blog I initially heard about this book. My Book Pimp offered to hook me up with it, and I accepted because of the review this person wrote. UGH! BAD RAUNCHY RYAN! I’m smacking myself for not remembering…anyway, on to what I thought about this book.My Favorite Countess by Vanessa Kelly is the story of Bathsheba, The Countess of Randolph, and her battling attraction to the enigmatic and passionate Dr. John Blackmore. The kicker of this book is th [...]


    20. Bathsheba is the Countess of Randolph and she needs to find a rich lover/husband in order to pay off the debts left by her late husband so it's imperative that she leave the country for London. However, while she was there, her nephew, the new Count of Randolph, convinces her to attend some of the local festivities which she's sure will bore her to tears. At one such event, Bathsheba meets Dr. John Blackmore, a well-known London physician who was also visiting in the area. Immediately smitten wi [...]


    21. Ce roman est une heureuse surprise, bon je dois dire que le résumé était déjà alléchant car j’aime quand au moins l’un des partis se fie juste aux apparences, cela entraîne automatiquement des quiproquos et des rebondissements.L’auteure réussit déjà un véritable tour de force car le personnage de Bathsheba n’était pas présenté sous les meilleurs hospices dans les tomes précédents mais pourtant elle aussi a droit à l’amour. L’auteure n’aura de cesse de la pousser au [...]


    22. Very good read, with few minor flaws.It was fascinating to read about a doctor in Victorian era, especially about a man-midwife (accoucher). The characters had layers and were willing to compromise for each other which is always a big plus in my book.The author managed to avoid some of the most horrible cliches in historical romances, and I really wanted to explore the world and the characters she described further.John Blackmore, a physician, and not some rich corinthian in disguise rebelling a [...]


    23. Surprise ! Pour une fois, c'est un personnage féminin venimeux, entraperçu dans un autre roman, qui passe au premier plan. La comtesse Bathsheba est une garce, une de celles qui font tourner une intrigue amoureuse au vinaigre, une de celles qu'on écarte dans les derniers chapitres après une bonne humiliation dans les gencives, afin de mieux faire roucouler le couple vedette.Eh bien cette fois, un tome a été consacré à un "méchant". Une femme, qui plus est. Bien entendu, on réalisera qu [...]


    24. This is a erotic novel with a great plot! Bathsheba needs to marry a fortune to settle her debts after her marriage to an abuser ends with his death in an accident. Untitled John Blackmore is from an ancient moneyed family but Bathsheba doesn't know that. Doctors were not considered prestigious people at that time. Although both fight their attraction they give in every time only to have something else come between them. John wants to practice for free in the slums. Meanwhile there are jealous p [...]


    25. I particularly enjoyed that the heroine is the one who starts off seeming like a [jerk] and the hero is a thorough do-gooder who helps her become her best self. I love me some bad boy heros, but I've read too many stories lately where it was the other way around so this was a great change of pace. I liked that the heroine becomes a better person without totally changing her personality. I also liked that the hero has a profession (doctor, and he specializes in what will become obstetrics) instea [...]


    26. My Favorite Countess Overall, I enjoyed this book. The hero is everything a hero should be need I say more!However, I found the character of Bathsheba rather annoying,(she is so physically perfect and stunning!),and I didn't have a lot of sympathy for her to start with. As the book progressed, I began to appreciate her good qualities, though, and genuinely wanted things to work out well for her future. She felt faint and weak so many times I actually thought she was pregnant, and was quite disap [...]


    27. Bathsheba starts out as a heroine you love to hate, but by the end one can't help but love her. An unparalleled beauty who is a remarkably deep and detailed character with a troubled past, a sharp tongue and a surprising vulnerable side. John Blackmore is a doctor with a mission. A devilishly handsome man, he risks his life to help those who cannot afford proper medical care. Guilt over a past loss and an amazingly kind persona motivate him to run a medical practice that risks all he holds valua [...]


    28. My rating for this is 3.5 Stars. I did enjoy the story but I felt it was too long. The prologue was not needed as this info could easily have been fed into the story later. I loved John Blackmore as the hero and also his interesting profession, doctor and obstetrician. I have to say I always enjoy historical heroes with occupations that were emerging or evolving in this era. Ms Kelly did a great job of really addressing all the issues a man like John might have had trying to perform his duties. [...]
