Overview

All of London knows the Duke of Rutherford has position and wealth. They also whisper that he’s dissolute, devilish, and determinedly unwed. So why, everyone is asking, has he hired a governess?

When Miss Lily Russell crosses the threshold of the Duke of Rutherford’s stylish townhouse, she knows she has come face to face with sensual danger. For this is no doting papa. Rather, his behavior is scandalous, and his reputation rightly earned. And his pursuit of her is nearly irresistible—but resist she must for the sake of her pupil.

As for the duke himself, it was bad enough when his unknown child landed on his doorstep. Now Lily, with her unassuming beauty, has aroused his most wicked fantasies—and, shockingly, his desire to change his wanton ways. He’s determined to become worthy of her, and so he asks for her help in correcting his behavior. 

But Lily has a secret, one that, if it becomes known, could change everything…

★ 09/22/2014
This charming 1840 English historical launches a series from Frampton (What Not to Bare). Marcus, who has been Duke of Rutherford for only six months, gives up aimless debauchery when unexpectedly confronted with fatherhood. He swiftly hires a young woman named Lily as tutor to his daughter, Rose. Marcus seeks purpose in life, while Lily hopes his patronage will boost her employment agency for unfortunates. Their mutual attraction intensifies through sparkling banter and meaningful discussion, spiced by slow-building steamy physical intimacy, until the truth of Lily’s past potentially ends their hopes for the future. Their love for Rose, who is a realistic four-year-old rather than a plot device, adds another dimension to their relationship and escalates the reader’s emotional investment in their fate. Frampton superbly balances passion with humor, avoiding cliché through rich characterization. The result is warm, kindhearted, and utterly delightful. Agent: Louise Fury, Bent Agency. (Dec.)
