While investigating a suspicious death, private-inquiry agent Ambrose Wells finds himself on the grounds of Aldwick Castle - and in the midst of utter chaos. The ramshackle castle is in flames - and a beautiful woman and four young girls are taking flight on horseback. It turns out that the strong-minded Miss Concordia Glade and her four bright students are on the run from a notorious London crime lord who'll stop at nothing to destroy them. Now their only hope is Ambrose, a confirmed loner with more than his share of secrets - and more than his share of desire for the unconventional teacher. And as Ambrose and Concordia risk everything to bring down a criminal mastermind, they will also be forced to battle something even greater: the steamy passion that threatens their hard-won independence....

Delightful characters, romance, and mystery!
Deep characters, amusing tension, and interesting mystery.
Concordia Glade -- smart, brave, strong, and dedicated to her students at possible expense to herself. Willing to break convention to act on her principals.
Ambrose Wells. Wonderful male voice done by woman. Although all of the voices were terrific!!
Yes, but circumstances intervened, so I had to break it up.
One of my favorites of Jayne's Victorian romances. Very interesting characters, and a good mystery without being overly dark. Plus, the addition of teenagers who catch the adults in consistencies and call out romance when they see it was really fun!
