Thomas Jennings arrives to his newly acquired estate to find that his steward has fled under a cloud of scandal, and the property has been held together by Miss Loris Tanner, the steward's daughter. Thomas knows what it's like to not fit in, and he's pragmatic enough to respect results, so he gives Loris a chance to maintain her position in a profession uniformly undertaken by men.

Thomas learns about the complexities of estate management from his unlikely tutor, despite somebody's attempts to drive him off his own land. Mishaps turns into near tragedies, while between Thomas and Loris, respect and liking grow into attraction. Who is sabotaging Thomas's estate, and what choices will Loris face when the malefactor has been revealed?

I liked this book especially for the detailed descriptions and inclusion of general tid-bits of knowledge about running a country estate. Most historical stories take place in a ballroom or a sitting room in London, so it is refreshing to see life in the country depicted. The rumor-mill is no less active, however, in the country. The scandal surrounding Loris' father, the series of mishaps on the farm and in the stables, and the growing romance between Thomas and Loris were all very entertaining. This was the first book by Grace Burrowes that I have read. I'm definitely going to have to read more to find out about the other characters introduced in this book.

This was an enjoyable read. I liked Thomas Jennings in David and I am glad his book came right after David's. Loris is a strong yet vulnerable young woman in a position only men are supposed to fill and she is holding her own. Thomas is intrigued by this independent woman that was abandoned by her father two years ago. He sees that his loss (whether by death or simply by running off) guides all of her decisions and her drive to work hard and succeed. She feels like she has something to prove, and maybe she does. No one thinks a woman can be a land steward and she is determined to prove everyone wrong. During their story, they have stolen moments of passion (love the scene in the rain outside her cottage, talk about 'Damn hot!'). Surprises, of course, come up; Thomas is determined to make Loris is Baroness, and Loris is determined to protect him from her father and scandal. Their love story was sweet, not too emotionally straining, not a lot of turmoil that pulls at your heart strings, but an enjoyable read all around.
