Miss Chloe Branton has been found a position as a laundry maid in a wealthy country house. Although she dislikes the life, she respects her father’s wishes, knowing the position will be temporary as she has been hidden away for her own safety. The workload is heavy and more physically demanding than she has been used to. Soon she needs the help of Mr Thaddeus Poole, the estate’s groundsman. She finds him very attractive and willing to help her. However, Chloe does not know if he will betray her or become her most trusted and loyal friend.
