    Griffin and Harriett! I LOVED IT!

    I was so surprised (well not really) that Harriett Gardner appeared in this book and to my delight ended up with a Boscastle! These two belong together and I truly loved this story to the very end!! Another wonderful Boscastle family romance!!

    a wonderful tale

    In 1818 the Boscastles found Harriet Gardner on the mean streets of the London. They cleaned her up and arranged for her to teach at the Scarfield Academy for Young Ladies.

    After the death of his brother fourteen months ago, Griffin Boscastle became the duke, a position he detests though he does ducal quite arrogantly well. He escorts his niece Edlyn and his pest of an aunt to the school where he unceremoniously dumps her on Harriet. The rake stays longer than he has to because Harriet's ripping off his skin intrigues him. However, when his thoughts begin veering towards long term, he considers flight rather than fight.

    Instead he decides to use Harriet to find him a suitable wife while also asking her to keep his niece safe from an unknown adversary trying to harm her. However, he never expected Harriet to risk her life to keep Edlyn safe. Already beyond lust, Griffin falls into love, but Harriet keeps kicking the rogue to the curb hiding how she really feels.

    With a nod to Frankenstein, the latest Boscastle "Wicked" Regency romance (see A Wicked Lord at the Wedding) is a wonderful tale with a strong suspense subplot enhancing the prime story line. Sub-genre readers and the students at the academy will appreciate the pompous conceited duke and the street smart teacher who tears his skin with sarcastic witty retorts while falling in love.
