After confessing her love for Lord Cunningham, Lady Rose Darby is whisked away by her father in the dead of night and locked in an old asylum. With no one but her paid companion, Miss Flint, for company, six months pass before Rose manages to escape.
But her plans to return to London go awry when she finds herself at Everleigh, a sprawling mansion nestled in the heart of the forest. Mistaken for a newly appointed maid, Rose is sent to meet her new master, the sinfully handsome and brooding Lord Farleigh. But how can she tell him who she really is without ruining her reputation? And why does the thought of working for a living suddenly have appeal?
Christian Knight, seventh Viscount Farleigh, leads a reclusive life in his country estate. Widowed at 30 and left to care for his two young children, love and marriage are not on his agenda. What respectable woman would want to move into a house in such a state of turmoil? The staff are sick, and he can’t keep a governess for more than a week. Is that why the new maid, Rose, proves too much of a distraction? As an honourable man, he knows he must fight the attraction. Yet, crippled with loneliness, his conscience is soon at war with his feeble heart.
Contains some descriptive sex scenes. Approx. 70,000 words.

Wonderful book and narration.
This book has it all: mystery, excitement, strong emotion, passion, danger, and a HEA. I highly recommend it! The narrator, Liisa Ivary, did a great job. It was easy to forget you were listening rather than taking part in it.
I received a copy and voluntarily chose to listen and review it. The review is my honest and unbiased opinion.

Great Mystery with Romance
This was a great addition to this series. I loved finding out what happened to Lady Rose. The intrigue happening in the story added to the development of the characters. I had though that the story was almost over, but then something else happens that grabs you back into the story. The narrator did a great job of telling the story. Overall a great suspense romance.

Mystery, suspense and romance abound in this second book in the series.
The whereabouts of Lady Rose is revealed and I followed her adventures with excitement.
I like the governess trope when it is well written and the characters are as likeable and charming as they are here. The children and their bond with Rose was sweet and I couldn't help but be entertained as they muddled through their days together. Lord Farleigh was kind to Rose and their initial scenes together, sweet and cute, left me with a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
I enjoyed the dark elements to the novel. There were a few sinister characters lurking in the background which kept my mind busy in guessing what their motives were and how they would fit into the events surrounding the deaths of two women and the mysterious illness affecting the servants in the house. I was kept guessing right to the end.
Events unfolded and concluded in a very satisfactory way. I'm looking forward to reading more of the series.
