Loved the first book in the series! Ms. Eva Black opened a school to teach former courtesan the art of running a household and wife! But a Duke lands at her door angry and wanting revenge, blaming Eva for his mistress leaving him and wanting a normal life. The Duke buys up most of her mother’s debt including the house her father left them. He either wants his former mistress back (that won’t happen, she’s married and with child) or the prim and proper Eva to take her place! A wonderful read with a great ending!
