Publisher's Summary

Penniless and jilted, Charlotte Atchenson accepts a position as governess to Lord Alistair Cassilis’ illegitimate children. When Eliza sets foot in the Scottish lord’s carriage, she faces the most dangerous foe a woman can face: a charming rogue. The danger is not only to her heart, however, but to her life, as well.

In an effort to deny her son’s illegitimate children, Alistair’s stepmother insists on a dour governess who will break their rebellious spirits. Alistair, however, decides that the pretty lass with a colorful French vocabulary who shows up in his stepmother’s drawing room is exactly what the children need. If the notion offends his stepmother, all the better. If the lass is what he needs…well, a man can’t ask for more. His stepmother doesn’t intend for Alistair to open his heart to her grandchildren, or the woman who cares for them. Her plans include forcing them onto the streets.

A promise of a great story

Love how the author Tarah likes to have stories full of mystery, excitement and makes you want to go back to that time period.
This one is no different. Story takes place in Scotland.
Hero is Lord Alistair. Heroine is Charlotte .
Charlotte is in a bind. Her father left her penniless. She has no choice but to find work . Lord Alistair is looking for a governess for his 2 children . When he sees Charlotte he knows he found his right match Charlotte while up in Scotland has to defend Lord Alistair from his wicked Stepmother. The stepmother advises the lord that he isn’t the legal heir. That’s when Charlotte flies into the stepmother and let’s her have it. Like all of Tarahs stories their is a happy ever after. Grab it

So familiar.....

Yet I can't put my finger on why....
There's a story here with a wide range of characters and all are entertaining...
but why do I get such a deja vu feeling about it?

...an intricate yet intriguing war.

Cinderella meets her Prince, but has to face down his wicked stepmother to protect the family she's come to love. Scott brings a dark touch to her spin on a classic tale. Charlotte brings the heart, Alistair the temption, while battling a dangerously, manipulative enemy. Zimmerman brings an edge of sophistication to an intricate yet intriguing war.

Whats in a name.

I found the story refreshing and pleasant to listen to. The narrator has a beautiful tone of the times to their voice. So you can imagine yourself in those times.
