After her father committed suicide rather than face his mounting gambling debts, Oksana Wallingford knows she will have to work in order to keep food on the table and her younger brother, the new baron, in school. When her best friend finders her a position as the nanny of his brother's children, it is the opportunity Oksana needs. But what she didn't contend with was Rafe, the recently widowed Duke of Essex and her new employer.

Oksana and Rafe's personalities are like oil and water. However, what begins as mutual hate slowly begins to change into something more. But what future can they have when Rafe has sworn off marriage for good?

As the mismatched pair struggles to come to terms with one another, a disaster that throws everything into question strikes them both.

Reviewed by Caitlyn Lynch for Readers' Favorite In Grays Hill, Barbara Cerny has created an absolutely amazing character - Lady Oksana “OJ” Wallingford. She’s unusually tall, she’s fat, and she’s not beautiful. She’s also been left in dire circumstances by a wastrel father who left her penniless and forced to seek employment after his death. Luckily, Lady OJ is fortunate in her friends, or most specifically in her best friend since childhood, Geoff Tarkington, younger brother of Rafe, Duke of Essex. Knowing how desperately his brother needs someone utterly respectable to take care of his young children after their faithless mother’s death, Geoff proposes OJ for the position, and Rafe is willing to take her on trust, sending her out to the family’s estate at Grays Hill to meet his sons. Strong-willed and loving, OJ immediately takes the motherless children to her heart, and their father finds himself reluctantly falling in love with her too. I don’t think I’ve ever read a period romance with a heroine as unusual as Lady OJ. I absolutely adored her. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind, to stand up to Rafe and shout at him, to fight for what she knew was right. I wanted to punch Rafe when he treated her badly; even knowing how badly he was played by his first wife, OJ still deserved better. Thankfully, because this is a romance, everything came out well and all those who deserved it got their happy ending. I’d love to read more of Barbara Cerny’s work, and I particularly hope she writes Lord Geoff’s story at some point in the future!

What's up with the use of modern phrases... "god's green earth" it takes away from the plot and the authenticity of the story.
