A novel by

Georgette Darrington cannot believe how her life took a turn for the worst in a single day. When her attorney informs her that she has to sell her home to pay for her late father's debts, she's suddenly left with no other choice than to become a governess. Without second thoughts, she enters the grand mansion of the Duke of Draycott where she is to teach his lovely young nieces, a task that many will try to sabotage. Will she convince the unbearably handsome Duke to take an interest in the girls' lives while trying to tame her growing feelings towards him?

Hamilton Whitehall has still not found the right governess for his lovely nieces, ever since he became their guardian. His cold demeanour, as well as the behaviour of his staff, have led a succession of governesses to quit. All that will change when the stunning and very determined Georgette takes up the position. While she seems to get closer and closer to the girls, as well as himself, a secret event from his past will cause chaos between them. Will the beautiful governess open his eyes and help him overcome what breaks his heart?

A heartwarming tale of a lady's efforts to put a splintered family back together, even as she battles her own feelings of love for the handsome, taciturn Duke. Will obstacles such as status clash, spiteful schemes, and past secrets keep Georgette from following her heart?
