The Governess’ Debut
The governess must charm both the spoiled child and the haughty earl.
Orphaned and destitute, gently born Felicia Scott must find a way to keep a roof over her head. No longer able to enter the Marriage Mart, but also not of the servant class, the only option is to find a position as governess.
After his spoiled, seven year old daughter has sent off three governesses in the 18 months since her mother died, the Earl of Standish doubts the young, inexperienced Miss Scott could possibly manage the position. Since he’s desperate and she comes so highly recommended, the earl agrees to give her a chance.
Much to everyone’s amazement, the beautiful, young governess succeeds where the others had failed. The entire household benefits from the calm, including the jaded earl.
How does he overcome his arrogance to see his governess’ true value?
