Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Countess and the Butler is a light, predictable read. Prince Michael of Estavia has run afoul of his older brother, the ruler of their country, over whether or not to support Napoleon. Michael wants to resist Napoleon and certainly does not want their young sister, at school in England, to marry a cousin of the Emperor. Finding himself penniless in England, Michael takes on the job as butler for a widowed countess, who just happens to be close friends with his sister, Antonia. Natalie, widowed a year earlier after only 2 days of marriage to her older husband, must play hostess to a house party. Thus, she is agreeable to hiring Michael. The two are very much attracted to each other. Natalie, who is, in fact, a virgin- her marriage was never consummated- sets out to seduce her handsome butler.

There is a mystery, but it is not very complicated and is secondary to the romance. Mainly, this is about Natalie and Michael finding themselves in various situations where he must touch her, hold her, help her, or kiss her. There are quite a number of secondary characters, but they play only small roles. The characters are adequately developed so they are not terrible, but are pretty much standard hero and heroine without anything much to distinguish them. The plot is simple and moves along fairly well, but the dialog is stiff and that makes scenes drag.

I would not recommend this for purchase, however if you found it in a box of books, it might keep you entertained for a couple hours.

No sex, only a few kisses and touching through clothing. 3 stars.
