A young governess in search of a dream life discovers that grim reality can bring true love in the New York Times–bestselling author’s Regency romance. Lord Percy Hunterdon has inherited a Gothic horror of a country estate along with a pair of teenage brats to marry off. To survive this disastrous fortune, he requires the expertise of a superior governess. When Jean Morrison discovers Lord Hunterdon's advertisement, dreams of an unmarried viscount and a magnificent castle dance in her head. She imagines him as Byronic and brooding, pacing the battlements in a black cloak and falling madly in love with her. It’s a rude awakening when Jean first sees the dank Trelawney Castle and encounters her vile new charges. Still, the golden hair and dancing eyes of her employer conjure up fantasies that are most unseemly for a governess of distinction.
