Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness. His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.
Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could expose her disgrace. But soon after becoming a lady's companion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a man well-acquainted with the past she's desperately hidden for years.
Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his own - one that has haunted him for years and tied him to his father's position as steward of Willowgrove Hall. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breathe a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, he'll never be free to find his own way in the world. He'll never be free to fall in love.
When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past...or will they stand together and fight for a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long suffered?

It was a bit too boring for me. It's one of those books where the characters are completely proper with one tiny peck and the very end of the book. I don't read smutty romance novels, but I do need a little more romance than was in this one. Very predictable storyline. Not my favorite.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and i didn't care for this narrator. It felt like she was simply reading the book to herself. I prefer when it feels like the narrator is giving a performance rather than simply reading the text.
This narrator was the better of the 3 in this series, but still had a lot of extra "s" sound which hurts your ears and lots of times when the male/female voices were indistinguishable.
I liked the story line even though at times it was hard to follow. Several loose ends kind of left me hanging. The narration was hard to understand as the narrator swallowed some of her words and had very little variation between voices. It would have been great to go to sleep with, but it was almost painful while driving.
