Sweet Sara Collins is one of the founding members of the governess club. But she has a secret… She doesn’t love teaching. She’d much prefer to be a vicar’s wife and help the local community. But this quiet mouse doesn’t want to upset her friends, and she resolves to help in whatever ways she can.
Nathan Grant is the embodiment of everything that frightens Sara. Which is why she can’t understand why the handsome but reclusive and gruff man is so fascinating to her. When Sara decides it’s time to take a chance and experience all that life has to offer, Nathan is the first person she thinks of.
Will Sara’s walk on the wild side ruin her chances at a simple, happy life? Or has she just opened the door to a once-in-a-lifetime chance of passion?
Why did his solicitousness grate on her all of the sudden? Wasn’t it a sign that he cared for and respected her? She doubted that Mr. Pomeroy would even think about putting his tongue in her mouth, let alone tell her he wanted to do it again and again and . . .Sara stopped her thoughts and continued to smile. “I am. In fact, I was wondering if I might ask a question of you.” He straightened and returned her smile. “Of course, anything I can help you with.”
She pressed her lips together for a moment and took a deep breath. “What is the definition of greed?” The words rushed out of her before her mother’s voice had a chance to stop them. Mr. Pomeroy blinked. “Well, I would say it is the desire to have more when one’s need has already been satisfied. It is
about excess.” Sara felt her shoulders droop. Her mother had been right. “So when one’s need has been satisfied, it is a sin to desire more.”
Louisa Brockhurst is on the run - from her friends, from her family, even from her dream of independence through The Governess Club. But sometimes it’s easier for her to hide from those she loves in order to escape the secrets of her past.
Handsome but menacing John Taylor is a former prize-fighter turned inn-keeper who is trying to make his way in society. When Louisa shows up at his doorstep he’s quick to accept her offer to help - at a price. He knows that she’s hiding something and he can’t help his protective instincts around the beautiful woman.
Their attraction grows, but will headstrong, fiery Louisa ever trust the surprisingly kind John enough to tell him the dangerous secrets from her past that keep her running? Or will the power of her feelings scare her into running yet again?
