A lady companion, an arrogant earl – should she save him from a horrid fate?
Giles, the Earl of Bargrave, does not want to be in London but since he has promised to chaperone his niece, knows he must keep to his word. Frustrated that the girl has also brought a companion, Giles does his best to ignore her, often reminding her harshly that he is well able to chaperone his niece without her aid.
Miss Emma Lawder has never had a London Season and doubts she will ever have one. Sent away as a companion by an uncaring father, Emma struggles against the earl’s displeasure. When, by chance, she uncovers a plot to ensnare him into marriage, Emma must choose just what she will do next. Will she tell him the truth or leave him to his fate? And can they find a way together that might just soften both of their hearts?
