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.

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?

A Real Connection
I felt more connected to Loris than to any other female in all the books I've read by Grace Burrowes. While the vast majority of the lead females are strong, Loris shows that in a man's world it's a woman who gets the job don't right. As always I love how jovial and close the relationships are with friends and extended family and that there is always tie ins to other books that are not only in the series. I love the world that Grace creates as well as the beautiful relationship between Thomas and Loris.
