A very bedraggled Cozette shows up unannounced on the London doorstep of Lord Stone on a cold, rainy evening. She pushes past the uppity butler and demands to see Lord Stone. It's 1792 and she has narrowly escaped from Paris with a very precious delivery - Lord Stone's nephew and heir. After several, very lively exchanges between Cozette and the earl, they decide she will remain as governess and companion for four-year old Lex.
Lord Stone is one of the most overbearing "heroes" I've ever encountered in a Regency/Georgian romance, but this is not unusual for Chater (ie: The Marriage Mart or Lady Dearborn's Debut). But come to think of it, he's about on par with Dominic Alistair, Marquis of Vidal in The Devil's Cub by Georgette Heyer who was forever imposing his will on the heroine. What was a bit unususual for Chater was how sexually forward the earl is; almost right from the start he's propositioning Cozette which was also similar to Lord Vidal. Maybe he was Chater's inspiration? It's still a clean novel with nothing beyond kissing, but I wouldn't hand it to my thirteen year old.
Sparks fly as Cozette and Lord Stone continue to butt heads with each other and their chemistry and attraction grows. Chater adds interest with several disapproving relatives, Cozette's loyal pursuit of Prime Minister Pitt and Prinny to help King Louis, daily interactions with Lex and the servants, and Cozette's missing father to create a lively, almost swashbuckling tale. The unifying element is the relationship between Cozette and Lord Stone. Overall I thought this was a fast, fun read with a very satisfying ending and I would read it again.
She does all she can to protect the Earl's nephew and falls in love along the way.
The author captures the emotions of a girl who has been educated by a loving father but is basically innocent of how the world works as she fits into the household of the English nobility.
Falling in love with the Earl isn't something she plans but the author captures the conflicting emotions perfectly.
I liked the historical aspects of the story as well. Very informative.
