Publisher's Summary

When a governess of great talents is required, there is only one place the nobility of England go: the Governess Bureau. 

It was why Miss Meredith Hubert had worked so hard to gain her place there. Finishing with the Earl of Marnmouth's children, she is about to be given her next assignment—a Duke called Alfred Carmichael with a reputation to maintain and a half-brother who needs controlling.

Archibald is but eight years old, but already threatens to ruin the family's reputation as Alfred, the Duke, tries to maintain it. They have to be spotless as there are other families who wish to take their place in society. But Meredith has a secret to hide, and she's not the only one. Maids sent away in secret, items missing from the house—there is more than one mystery at Rochdale Abbey.

When a Duke falls in love with a governess, there's only one way this can end—in scandal.

As Alfred Carmichael tries desperately to retain his family's honor and fight his desire of Meredith, how will Meredith's Great Talents ensure a happily ever after for them all?

Where was the hero and heroine again?

Story had potential but... the hero was bossed around by everyone, and she would save the day...as he stared.
