Rules of Respectability

Devon Mathewes, earl of Kerrich, finds his income and family name imperiled by his notorious reputation. So he demands three things. A sensible governess who will not wish to visit his bed—he can’t be bothered to make love to every woman who wants him. An orphan he can adopt and seem to care for—his apparent kindness will cover him with respectability. And that his life not be unduly altered—the child and the governess should better his character without his participation.

As a condition of accepting the governess position, Miss Pamela Lockhart has rules of her own. Devon must at all times behave with propriety. She must be allowed to choose a suitable orphan. Most important, Devon must vow to never ever delve into Pamela’s past or appearance lest he discover the deepest secrets of her heart.

Of course, rules are made to be broken . . .

Excellent

Enjoyed the story. The narrator and the writing. If you like a slow burn, wit and passion and enemies to friends.

Wonderful!

I listened to the first book in this series and
Thought it was WONDERFUL
I am looking forward to the next
When will that be?
Recently I listened to a book read by Karen Cass and proceeded to buy all interesting books read by her. That is how I came to read these books .
I usually only pick my books only by narrator
