Publisher's Summary

How easily can an open heart unlock the door to happily ever after?

When Miss Quinn Cooper arrives in Emerson Pass, Colorado, her entire life is packed into one small suitcase. Her family is depending upon her for their survival back home in Boston, and the self-appointed mayor of the rugged mountain community is counting on Miss Cooper to prove herself a fitting teacher for the entire town.

Lord Alexander Barnes is determined to bring a bit of English civility to the wild terrain of Emerson Pass. Using his own resources, the widower and father of five builds a schoolhouse and recruits a young teacher from the East, and all is well until necessity forces the lovely, young newcomer to also take a room in the Barnes’ home.

While the five Barnes children are sure the new schoolmarm is the perfect woman for their lonely father, and the duo has been forced together by every possible circumstance, the threat of violence upon the untamed town makes any hope of a budding romance seem unwise. But as Lord Barnes and Miss Cooper persist in their efforts to bring progress to the closed-minded locals, their own hearts may be unable to resist the chance to experience something as fresh and exhilarating as the unsettled mountain territory.

The first installment of USA Today best-selling author Tess Thompson’s historical romance series brings a touch of whimsy and an extra dash of mystery to Edwardian romance. Listeners will fall in love with the courageous Miss Cooper and swoon for the magnanimous English lord as they struggle to save their exciting new world at the turn of the 20th century.

Wonderful story

I finished reading this book then immediately looked for it on audio. Such a sweet story, with some intense moments. The narration was fabulous and I liked how they went back and forth. I just finished reading The Spinster, so I can't wait for it to come on audible too.

Cozy Regency Tale

Not quite the Regency standard that I’m accustomed to. This is almost a Cozy Historical Romance…
Not riveting enough to make me decide to read the rest in the series, a bit basic.
Georgette Heyer & Stella Riley are my measure.

The narration wasn’t too bad, but still didn’t pull me into the story.
