When a lost lady discovers that love is found far from home....
After confessing her love for Lord Cunningham, Lady Rose Darby is whisked away by her father in the dead of night and locked in an old asylum. With no one but her paid companion, Miss Flint, for company, six months pass before Rose manages to escape.
But her plans to return to London go awry when she finds herself at Everleigh, a sprawling mansion nestled in the heart of the forest. Mistaken for a newly appointed maid, Rose is sent to meet her new master, the sinfully handsome and brooding Lord Farleigh. But how can she tell him who she really is without ruining her reputation? And why does the thought of working for a living suddenly have appeal?
Christian Knight, seventh Viscount Farleigh, leads a reclusive life in his country estate. Widowed at 30 and left to care for his two young children, love and marriage are not on his agenda. What respectable woman would want to move into a house in such a state of turmoil? The staff are sick, and he can’t keep a governess for more than a week. Is that why the new maid, Rose, proves too much of a distraction? As an honourable man, he knows he must fight the attraction. Yet, crippled with loneliness, his conscience is soon at war with his feeble heart.
