Michael Drury, Viscount Weston, treats life like a business, shunning personal connections at all costs to avoid the passion that ultimately destroyed his parents. Discovering drab governess Emma Grisby in his library is a shock, especially since her uncle appears to have risen from the grave with deadly intent. He suspects her of working with her uncle and devises a scheme to watch her.
Desperate to aid her family, Emma reluctantly agrees to Michael's offer to give her a season with the hopes of finding a wealthy husband. She trusts no man and does her best to ignore her growing feelings for the handsome viscount.
Watching Emma transform into a beautiful, confident woman is more than Michael bargained for. He fears losing control of his carefully ordered life when his love for her intensifies. As passions collide and secrets are revealed, Michael and Emma must decide if they are strong enough to risk their hearts, and possibly their lives, for love.

Okay, enough, Ms. Williams! You're books keep me up late at night, and I need more sleep. But no! You have to have another brilliant one out! Hee-hee! Seriously, I LOVED this book! Michael Drury, Viscount Weston, is hot in pursuit of an evil professor, when lo and behold his niece, Emma Grisby, lands herself in his library one morning, looking for a reference. He has other plans, although he does provide a reference for a job that Emma doesn't get. Michael decides instead to have Emma close, to keep watch over the one lead he has of the professor, and offers her a season for the prospect of marrying one of the rich London bachelors in the ton. Although Emma has some issues with men and trust, she sees the logic in Michael's plan. After all, this is Victorian London when precious little else was offered to women who aimed to provide for her family, which Emma has been trying to do for years. In the process of the showing Emma the town and ton, Michael realizes he has feelings for her. But he's engaged to be married to a woman who could grant him the home his father had gambled away. It's wonderful to watch the two fight their growing attraction and try so hard to do the right thing. Through it all the evil professor has plans of his own, and when life and love are threatened the characters must make tough decisions. I cannot wait for the next book!
Perfect romance! Great hero and heroine, well plotted, and very entertaining. I will be looking for other books by this author, including the other 2 in this series.
Mystery and romance...perfect!
