Can a gentleman looking for a governess find the greatest treasure of all?
When James Craig is awakened by the sound of a woman’s weeping, he fears he’s once again being haunted by a ghost from his past. The powerful railroad tycoon has given up all hope of escaping his nightmares. But when he opens his hotel room door, he finds not a memory, but a flesh-and-blood woman. A woman who makes him ache to take her into his arms and dry her tears…
Elizabeth Sadler came to San Francisco with a heart full of hope. After her dreams of a bright future are dashed, she finds unlikely solace in the arms of a stranger. A stranger who just happens to be looking for a governess for his four motherless daughters.
Although she tries to resist their charms, Elizabeth soon finds James’s little girls — his “Treasures” — sneaking their way past her defenses. But it’s their handsome father who poses an even greater danger to her battered heart as Elizabeth finds his stolen kisses and tender touches utterly irresistible. As the shadows of the past gather around them, James and Elizabeth must decide just how many dangers they’re willing to brave to claim the greatest treasure of all — true love.

A good read, not the usual.
Elizabeth and James both have baggage they are carrying within their hearts.
If they can manage to offload it, there may be a chance for happiness.
Sadly one particular treasure by the name of Ruby is determined to put them both to the test.
The author weaves the story very well, although at times I was frustrated and gnashing my teeth at the handling of the little girl. Children understand and are able to manipulate situations to their own end, more than adults give them credit for.
The author gives an insight into the bigotry of the early days of San Francisco the different nationalities that made up the population back in the era. It wasn’t nice or kind.
