Two years have passed since George Pembroke, Lord Sedgewick, lost his beloved wife. Though the fashionable beauties and heiresses of the ton have done their utmost to mend his broken heart, he has not remarried. Simply put, no other woman will ever do. George pays no heed to the well-meaning advice of his meddlesome sisters, Felicity and Glee - and he will have no part of their many and varied schemes to make a match....
Glee is convinced that her dear friend Sally Spenser would make a perfect governess for her niece and nephew. A vicar's daughter, Sally is charming, highly intelligent, and affectionate by nature. The plight of the motherless Pembroke children has touched her heart. And no one knows that she has long cherished a secret tenderness for their father. She consents to become part of his household - under the auspices of a marriage in name only. But Lord Sedgewick's elegant Bath town house has one very great drawback: it is very small. They must share a bedroom - and a bed.

I love all of Cheryl's books and this was no different. "To Take This Lord" is, as usual, a fantastic book to read, or in this case listen to. I had it playing when I was getting dressed, making dinner, dusting... To put it simply, I loved it! I could visualize every location, the people, it was like I was there watching a play. I give it 5 stars! Loved it but then I always like reading her books.
When Adriene was trying to 'rescue' the older lady and Heloise, then Heloise's husband started calling for her, I was on pins and needles.
I chose my rating because I liked this book best in the series so far because of the "twist" at the beginning of the story.
I really enjoyed it. It did take me a minute to get used the to British accents but once I did I really got into the story.
The carriage ride at the end
Yes when George ran into the burning barn to save his children
First book by this author and won't be my last I must go check out the rest of this series now
Narrator makes characters sound like they are in their 70s. Husband treats wife like an employee. Wife lets him get away with it. To many sub story's without development of characters or story line. How can you kill 500 sheep in the middle of the night and no one hear it.
