Claire de Lormes has just become the governess for young Katherine. As Claire gets to know the widowed viscount she sees past his thinness and imperfect face to find a man she enjoys being around. She is just happy to have a home for her and young Celestine to keep their secret safe. Claire knows she is still just an upper servant….not someone that could have more with a wealthy aristocrat.
Timothy Cardan, 6th Viscount of Asterley, is impressed from the moment he meets Claire. She is intelligent and enjoyable to speak with. In a moment where his brain must have stepped out he finds himself in a bad situation. Can he repent and have a second chance or will this ray of sunshine be gone from his life?
Suzy has way of putting a full size story into a quick read, which I appreciate when I want to read something in between full size books. She did a good job of bringing out the emotions and personalities of the characters as well.

A woman accepts a post as governess and brings a child along with her, while letting her employer assume she is a widow with a child to support. There is a spark of attraction, but the governess is not what she seems. When her employer acts upon the attraction without her consent, lives in the household are changed forever. This is a good story but some may find the sexual element disturbing.
