Can Love Survive…?

A poor countess masquerading as a governess...

Lady Victoria Bascombe, Countess of Hadleymere, is broke. Not just the 'I must sell a few family jewels and spend the season in the country' kind of broke, but the 'I must marry before anyone finds out or pretend I died' kind of poverty. She opts for employment instead, masquerading as a governess and fleeing to the Highland village of Loch Bana. She is to take charge of the daughter of Laird Haig MacGarron, who was also bestowed with the title of earl of Kinvarness after the Battle of Waterloo. Nowhere in his advertisement did he mention he was single…and sinfully handsome.

A solitary laird doing his best to avoid love...

Haig was expecting a grey-haired matron; what he gets is a sharp-tongued, green-eyed, young(ish) lass. One who will not just tame his unruly daughter, Danielle, but who will transform the lives of both father and child with her joyful exuberance.

A lie that could be their undoing...

If he allows her to. Once he discovers she’s been concealing her real identity, he doesn’t know if he can trust her. Danielle’s mother betrayed him long ago, and it is not an experience he’s willing to undertake again. But when an unknown assailant threatens Victoria’s life, Haig is compelled to protect her. He must decide if forgiveness is possible…
