After years of reluctantly living the wild life in Haskell, Wyoming, all Rose Rawlins wants is to settle down into a quiet position as a maid for the Bond family in Brynthwaite, England. She takes her position as nurse for charming and irascible Mr. Bond and confidant of adventurous Miss Elaine Bond seriously, vowing that nothing will get in the way of her duty to her new friends.
Until handsome and tempting Dr. Isaac Newsome comes along.
Widower, Isaac Newsome, doesn’t feel as though he has anything to offer a woman, but from the first moment he lays eyes on Rose, that belief is challenged. Rose’s refreshing, American ways breathe new life into what was becoming a stale existence. But in spite of the fiery attraction between them, Rose is holding something back.
It takes a trio of mischievous young men from Brynthwaite Municipal Orphanage, all of Mr. Bond’s wiles, a mysterious and regal bookseller who is also new to town, and a daring boat race to bring Rose and Isaac together, but even then, will a sudden tragedy pull them apart?
Narrated by the author, who is not a professional narrator, but sure does love telling you her stories...and who blushes at the naughty bits.
