Overview

Though not a dragon, the governess was formidable in spirit. A lady in reduced circumstances, she had ushered dozens of young women to the altar without the slightest scandal. But that was before a dashing colonel who served with her long-departed fiancee took an interest in her. Soon, in defiance of the ton, his relatives, and the governess's former charges, the colonel makes a headlong charge to capture her heart. But just as their passion consumes them, a dark secret from the woman's past threatens everything they have hoped for!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In a fitting conclusion to her Earl of Westcott's Daughters' series, Kihlstrom neatly ties up the loose ends and provides the formidible governess, Miss Marian Tibbles, with her very own hero, Col. Andrew Merriweather, retired. A holiday in Bath and a chance meeting make life much more interesting--and ultimately more romantic--for both protagonists as Miss Tibbles struggles with her long-held notions of propriety and her diminished social standing and the colonel calmly sets out to plan his matrimonial strategy, despite society's rigid conventions on equality and suitable matches. Nicely paced and thoroughly grounded in the period, this charming story elicits tears as well as smiles. Although it should especially delight readers of the Westcott series, it should also please Regency fans in general. Kihlstrom (An Outrageous Proposal, Signet, 1998) is a veteran Regency romance writer and lives in New Jersey.
