Daphne Blakemoor was content living in her own secluded world for the last twelve years. She had everything she needed–loved ones, a true home, and time to indulge her imagination. But when ownership of the estate where she works as a housekeeper passes to a new marquis with an undeniable connection to her past, everything she’s come to rely upon is threatened.
William, Marquis of Chemsford’s main goal in life is to be the exact opposite of his father. Starting a new life in the peace and quiet of the country sounds perfect . . . until his housekeeper turns his life upside down.
Both Daphne and William have spent their lives hiding from the past. Can they find the courage to face their deepest wounds and, perhaps, forge a new path for the future together?
Well, this book sure starts out with an interesting scene that will keep you turning pages to see what happens next.
William and Daphne don’t get off on a very good foot. Their first impression of each other is almost funny.
From there on out things are strained and strange between the two because they don’t know each other secrets.
I couldn’t wait to see how William would react when he found out how his home had been used before he came along.
Once again, Kristy hasn’t let her readers down. Another great book!
