Book description
A lady turned governess…

A life-changing proposal!

When Lady Alexandra Mannerly last saw Malcolm Gordston, he was a poor crofter’s son—someone a sheltered duke’s daughter would never be allowed to marry. But scandal has rocked her arrogant family, and Alex now leads a quiet life as a governess in Paris—where she meets Malcolm again! Now he’s a wealthy, powerful department store owner…and determined to make her his bride!

My thoughts
I really enjoyed this book. The theme of how the rich become humbled and the not so rich move up. I liked that whole idea because it really makes people understand each other better. Although you do have to feel a bit sorry for Lady Alexandra going from having money to having to be a governess. The author does a good job of getting the setting just right. I know she does her research and it shows. Her writing is easy to read and holds your attention well. I look forward to the next book from her.
