The daughter of London’s wickedest widow, Helene de Severs
has learned to govern her own reckless emotions. Renowned
within Europe’s emerging field of psychiatric medicine,
Helene has a gift for healing children. When fate sends
her back to the village she once left in disgrace, Helene
is confident she can govern her own reckless emotions, too.
The Earl of Treyhern has dragged his family back from the
brink of ruin. But a disastrous marriage has left him with
a traumatized child, and his rebellious brother Bentley is
just one step ahead of the bailiffs. When his father drops
dead while debauching the governess, Treyhern’s famous
self-control almost snaps. Desperately in need of a good
governess, Treyhern hires the very best. And when Helene
steps down from his carriage, his resolve is truly tested—
by a rush of desire he’d long thought dead.
