Fleeing the disappointment of her brother, Cecelia Sanford has applied to Viscount Lindenhurst to allow her to be governess to his son. Since he's had to fire all the other governesses for one reason or another, he decided he might as well try his best friend's sister in the position.
Having not been raised in the serving class, Cecelia is not the obedient governess that she ought to be. She starts questioning Lind about why he won't call his son by his given name and other impertinant things that he doesn't want to answer.
Having not had a woman since his wife passed away four years ago, Lind finds it hard to resist his attraction for Cecelia. But she is hiding secrets of her own. Can they get over their past to find a new love?
I've been looking forward to Cecelia and Lind's story since I read What a Lady Craves. Cecelia and Lind were perfect for each other. I loved seeing Cecelia push Lind from his comfort zone and make him analyze his actions that were dubious. Lind made Cecelia realize that her past wasn't her fault and that she could move forward.
The next book in the series is What a Lady Requires, which stars Rowan Battencliffe. Can he redeem himself? We have to wait until February to find out!
