A delightful short story, set in Regency London.
When an all-too-serious lord fears his elderly mother’s saucy new companion is not quite a lady, he’ll do anything to protect his mother’s health and happiness.
Olivia Charteris is only trying to be a loving friend to elderly Lady Granfell. She agrees to move in and do what she can to restore the frail woman’s health. In fact, Olivia’s knowledge of herbs and natural cures is already starting to make a noticeable difference . . . to everyone but Lady Granfell’s son. The beastly Lord Granfell rarely visits his mother and Olivia forms an instant dislike of the man . . . until she sees for herself how concerned he truly is for his mother’s welfare. Before long, unpredictable, romantic Olivia finds herself besotted by a practical and logical lord.
Antony St. John, Earl of Granfell doesn’t trust the young woman who has taken up residence in his mother’s home as her companion. In his opinion, Miss Olivia Charteris is simply trying to fleece his mother of every penny in her purse, while filling his mother’s head with preposterous romantic notions. Worse yet, she leaves his emotions in turmoil every time her eyes meet his. There’s no room in his well-ordered life for Olivia and her romantic notions. Or is there?
