Overview

David Tenant, a Boston-bred master of fine leatherwork, has just unexpectedly inherited the rather sizable English estate of Brentfield Court—and a conniving widow in the process. For Lady Sylvia Tenant is determined to control the fortune of her late husband...even if that means bringing home her seventeen-year-old niece Priscilla in hopes that the new earl will woo her. But David has eyes only for Priscilla's art teacher and guardian, the lovely Miss Hannah Alexander...

When Hannah, who eschewed marriage for the life of a painter and tutor, is required to escort a pupil to Brentfield, she meets the kind-hearted Lord Tenant. In private, she sketches his portrait so that she will always have a remembrance of the handsome man she can never have. But when she agrees to aid David in his search for missing art heirlooms, she enters into a partnership as perilous to her life as it is to her heart...

Editorial Reviews

Noted Regency author - Emily Hendrickson
"I loved this book. The Colonial Upstart of an earl paired with a lovely art teacher is a brilliant stroke and the writing matches her plot . . . This is a page turner and I defy a reader to put the book down until finished."
RT Book Reviews - Editorial Staff
"Ms. Scott adds a dandy mystery subplot to move events forward for our reading pleasure. A lively tale."

As Hannah Alexander, as a portrait artist, has been chosen to be a chaperon. David Tenant, the yet to be confirmed Earl of Brentfield, is not warming to English Society nor his place within it. When the previous earl's widow announces that she has invited her niece and a few of her niece's classmates, he hopes their presence will prove to be distracting, as he is trying to locate several missing pieces of art listed in the estates inventory. As he spends more time with Hannah, he wonders how can he win her heart. Enchanting romantic suspense tale which was full of twists and turns
