Lord Henry Pomeroy's three daughters are finally married and happily settled in their own homes. He's looking forward to grandbabies and the company of Lady Crampton, the woman who acted as chaperone and companion to his daughters the past four years—and stole his heart in the meantime. Except she is moving out of his house!
Lady Selina Crampton has fallen hopelessly in love with her employer. Now that his youngest daughter is married, there is no longer a reason for her to remain since her work has come to an end.
Marriage is not possible, and the time has come to confront her demons and tell him why she has refused his numerous offers of marriage. It appears everyone is going to have their happy ending except them.
