This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In Vanessa Kelly’s enchanting series, three young women descended from royalty overcome their scandalous beginnings to win the hearts of the ton’s most eligible men . . .
The illegitimate daughter of the Prince Regent might be expected to pursue various dubious professions. Actress, perhaps, or artist’s model. Even courtesan. Victoria Knight, however, has become a governess—a respectable choice, until she travels to Scotland to meet her new charges. The younger brothers of Nicholas Kendrick, Earl of Arnprior, aren’t children at all. They’re brawny, wild Highland men. As for the Earl, he’s handsome, guarded, and far too
compelling . . . especially for a woman hiding a dark secret.
Nick needs a proper teacher to transform his unmarriageable brothers—and a sensible, straight-laced wife for himself. Miss Knight seems to fit the bill on both counts. But he soon discovers there is more to Victoria than he thought. It’s not just her notorious origins, or the danger that’s followed her all the way to Scotland. It’s the fiery loyalty beneath that sedate façade. This, the real Victoria, is the woman Nick is starting to desire so desperately. And what an earl wants, he’ll use every seductive means to get . . .

“Kelly combines diverting dialogue, delightful surprises and finely tuned pacing to make this a winner.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Vanessa Kelly writes the best historical romance! You are guaranteed to be drawn into the story and you never want to leave.
Victoria Knight illegitimate daughter of the Prince Regent wants nothing more then to teach children and live a quite life. To avoid a scandal Victoria accepts a governess position in Scotland. Little does she know who her charges are and what she's required to teach.
Nicholas Kendrick, Earl of Arnprior, heartache and anger took him off to war and away from his family and clan. The time away has has left his family in disarray and he's at his wits end with what to do with his brothers. A governess should do the trick and maybe he can then find a sensible and trustworthy wife for himself. When Victoria arrives she is nothing like Nick expected and now he has to convince her to stay and that she is needed.
Nick and Victoria dance around their attraction for each other, the witty dialogue and family antics all come together to prove just how well they suit. But when the scandal comes to find Victoria the life she never knew could be hers starts to crumble around them all.
The secondary characters in this book added so much fun and possibility for future books that I can't wait. Logan the brother sent away and told never to return. Royal, brooding and temperamental and distant. The twins Graeme and Grant always up to no good and running a mock on Kendrick land. Grumbling grandda Angus who does not want to give up the traditional ways of the highlands and then there's sweet Kade who I totally adore
