    Sassy Winthrop has just turned 21. But instead of being a time of fun, parties, and courting, it has been a time of loss, grief, and transitions. With the death of her beloved father, a kindly country vicar, Sassy is left not only without immediate family, but she must also leave the only home she has ever known to make room for the new vicar. And if that weren’t enough, she is also going through transition as her powers of light magic are completed.

    My review - We are in Sutton Village, England and its the year of 1815.Enter Sassy Winthrop a 21 yr old who is a white witch just coming into her powers. The only persons who know this are her mother who passed away 2 years ago and her now ailing/dying father The Vicar. Sassy keeps having vivid dreams of a man with hair as dark as the night sky and eyes so blue. She doesn't know who the man is or why she is dreaming of him at first. She sees him before she moves away and runs the other way. After Sassy's father passes away she has to move in with her mothers best friend and it is here where Sassy takes on a teaching position at Netherby Halls where things are very evil. So now Sassy must not only protect herself but the girls she teaches at the school. Has her powers strengthened enough and will she know how to use them?Soon Sassy discovers the name of the man who is in her visions is none other than Justin Dartmour. She wants to run away again but something pulls her to Justin. Sassy has heard what others have said about Justin Dartmour that he is a womanizer. Can she grab and hold on to Justin's Heart?

Sky Westbrooke had no wish to marry, but his mischievous siblings sorely needed a firm maternal hand.

    Any additional comments?

    I wrote a written review from reading the book and I will put that here :) In this story we have Cherry Elton and Lord Skylar Westbrooke Cherry is sort of a wild child for the times. Her stepmother is beside herself on how to curb Cherry. She decides to marry off Cherry as she is of age and needs to calm down. Cherry however wants no part of it and decides to take off in the middle of the night on her horse. While riding in the night she stumbles upon a man who immediately takes her in his arms. She doesn’t know what to think of this man but immediately sparks fly and attraction is there. See the thing is her Step-Mother never told her the name of the man she had setup for her to marry . So when Cherry runs into this man (Sky Westbrooke) she has no idea that this is the man. And of course at the time Sky has no idea that it is Cherry who was to be his bride. Sky takes her in as a Governess to his unruly siblings. After having met Cherry he doesn’t want to even think of marrying the woman he had agreed to marry. The story plays out very nicely and in many parts you find yourself Laughing out Loud at Cherry’s escapades.She is a strong headed young woman. The attraction between Cherry and Sky plays out beautifully. They both want each other all the while thinking they were to be with someone else. What a comical, adorable Romance.I truly enjoyed it and I definetly would recommend it. If you like Historical Romance and a little comedy
