Lord Elliott Mayfield sees the new generation of his family moving in the same direction of bad matches and scandalous relationships as the last. In hopes to change their course, he establishes a "marriage campaign" to motivate them to improve themselves through making respectable matches. Peter, Elliott's eldest nephew, thinks the entire idea is ridiculous. A widower with two young daughters, he simply needs a governess, not a wife. Julia Hollingsworth has the credentials and the experience, but is too young and pretty for such a job. So why can't he stop thinking about her?

I have listened to all of her other books, which were amazing! Liz Pierce did a wonderful job narrating those. This book , both the story and the narration, lacked the sizzle that the other ones did. The narrator, though good, was monotone. The voices were good, but the actual narration parts seemed flat. Also the main character, the male character, very flat.

although the story is sweet, it takes a long long time to unravel the Mysteries. Somehow this slowness takes the energy out of the story. I think it could have been woven more tightly and more attention paid to the development of the romance.
