Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd brings you "The Sound of Music meets Jane Eyre" in her refreshingly humorous addition to the Governess Brides series...

When Miss Samantha Prendregast arrives at Devil's Fell to take charge of six rebellious girls, the vibrant, outspoken governess finds she can manage the children with intelligence, guile...and a little bribery. Their widowed father, Colonel William Gregory, is not so easily charmed - and far too easy to love. 

William always cherished the orderliness of his life until this captivating troublemaker arrives. Despite the fact that they clash at every meeting, William finds himself drawn to Samantha's fire. And now he's even contemplating marriage, which would be sweet madness indeed. But before he can successfully woo her, William must discover what Samantha is hiding. But the secret the lady is preciously guarding is far too shocking and dangerous to ever reveal...

Love the story and narration

Karen Cass does a wonderful job narrating and the story is a favorite. Samantha is a former thief who was rescued as teen by Lady Adorna who runs the Distinguished Academy of Governesses. After an incident she is sent to the country where she meets our hero Colonel William and his 6 girls, who add fun and cuteness to the story. Due to his past experiences William sees everything as either black or white which is a problem for their relationship when Sam has to reveal her past to him. I like how the hero learns after meeting her that there are shades of gray he must accept because he and the children need her in their lives.
