I think Christine Merrill is going to be my new guilty pleasure! She never expects to care for the children. There was solid sexual tension, steamy love scenes and some delicious angst from our brooding hero. The highest praise - and reserved for only a few. Now more than ever she needs to find out the truth, not just for her but also for the wellbeing of the family. Daphne discovers the truth of what happened from the children.
Timothy finds some serenity and calm from his tortured thoughts by spending hours in his greenhouse. I'm guessing most of the things I don't like about the book might boil down to personal preference so take the rating for what it's worth. Because I am a huge Regency fan, I was immediately drawn to this title when I saw it. Her family decides to send her away from London for sometime until the scandal in which she was involved dies down. She is also caring for the children a lot more than what she ever thought possible. Some of that might be answered when I go back and read the first book but for now that still seems an anomaly.
By Chapter Two, you're fully involved in the mystery surrounding Tim Colton and the mysterious death of his wife; you just have to keep reading! Her Harlequin romances are great, and not too raunchy as so many other authors do to these types of books. I loved the characters, the plot and the writing. It is almost like it is not a second book but just another chapter of the previous book. She loves his children and helps them to return to a better life after the death of their mother. As their fears become known, the truth emerges. I don't like the cover much I rolled my eyes too much.
Timothy acts totally out of character, seemingly bent on proving to all how horrible he is, but somewhere along the way he realizes life goes on. I don't think this is Christine Merrill at her best, but it is an entertaining read. I didn't really appreciate the premise of the story, but that's a personal choice.

On the beginning Daphne is as a selfish and immature girl, but with the passing of times and the experiences she is living she grows and matures becoming a caring and a more real woman. All good things, as far as I'm concerned. Plus the idea that the youngest daughter can draw was sheer genius and what was brilliant about this was that she was able to visualise the her mother death through roughly about five sheets of paper. I'm guessing most of the things I don't like about the book might boil down to personal preference so take the rating for what it's worth. But as Daphne spends time with Lord Colton and his children, a very different picture of her cousin and Timothy Colton emerges. Never met her husband, Lord Colton? She infiltrates his household in the guise of governess to his three children.
The only thing she has to fear from Lord Colton is losing her heart, especially when he learns of her masquerade and true identity. The heroine falling in love with him while still thinking he might've killed her cousin is just icky, and she never stops to think about the consequences. During that time, someone invented word processing, and a reliable spell checker. Also love the cover, just how I pictured Timothy, though the look is a bit too sly. Daphne Collingham is masquerading as a governess in Lord Timothy Colton's home— determined to discover if he is responsible for her beloved cousin's death. Daphne's fresh and honest approach endears her to the children, shades of Maria from 'The Sound of Music', for it also endears her to Timothy as well. The explanation seemed a little thin, but I am willing to go with it.

This convinces Daphne all the more that Timothy Colton is the murderer of her cousin. Little Sophie and the older children Edmund and Lily are the catalyst in unraveling the mystery of the death in the house. I didn't really appreciate the premise of the story, but that's a personal choice.
It reminds me of Jane Eyre, with the brooding lord and the governess in a huge manor and whatnot. The writing and editing were superb. Instead of going into exile with the family her parent's have chosen, she makes a deal with a governess traveling to the home of her deceased cousin to care for her children. Registered users may leave comments. The governess that he so resented having to tolerate brings needs, desires, and bone-deep longing rushing back into his life. She's acquired a new fan.
Timothy acts totally out of character, seemingly bent on proving to all how horrible he is, but somewhere along the way he realizes life goes on. But a man has his limits, and the delectable Miss Collingham is pure temptation… I really loved the book this one follows,. But a man has his limits, and the delectable Miss Collingham is pure temptation. Readers should be aware that this is a reissue, so I do not know if the version that I received has been altered from previous versions.

Daphne is determined to get at the bottom of it.
You really loved the characters and the plot and would consider looking for this authors back list or making her an autobuy. But what I liked the most is that they behave as kids do. She's prepared to uncover secrets and scandal, but the biggest revelation is the way she feels under the lord's dark gaze. This deception turns out to be a rite of passage for Daphne but it also brings on lots of heartache. Стоимость международной доставки частично уплачена компании Pitney Bowes Inc.
