The Solicitation

(The first book in the Waldorf Manor series)
A novel by

Brayden James was raised in an extremely disciplined and formal household in modern-day England, on a private estate in the countryside. Having been left Waldorf Manor in his parents' Will, Brayden resides amongst only his live-in domestic staff. That is, until he publishes a solicitation online searching for the right young woman to live platonically under his authority in a very structured environment. The story begins from the morning of the interviews where seventeen young ladies have been brought to Waldorf Manor for Brayden to see face to face and discern who, if any of them, will be the right match.

Brayden's choice proves to be more than just a way to feed his love of formal living and discipline when it becomes obvious his new charge desperately needs more than that. Not in any way against his expectations, Brayden finds she isn't accustomed to living in such a formal and privileged environment and soon finds that she needs more than just a disciplinarian - she needs a "father." He also finds her ability to function as someone living in his household to be a lot younger than her chronological age, and mandates she will be viewed entirely as a ten year old until he feels she can adjust properly. Brayden wastes no time in legally adopting the 'eighteen year old'.

The Solicitation follows Brayden as he very rigidly raises his new family member to embrace a formal lifestyle and all that goes along with it. His corrective measures are always firm but never cruel. A gentleman through and through, Brayden will show his new little miss what it's like to be raised by someone who both loves and listens, but also disciplines quickly and deliberately all the while providing a lifestyle Brayden has always desired and she more than needs.
