Released under the publisher's multi-author mini-series - "Steepwood Scandal series "
Miss Desiree Nash’s prospects look very dim indeed.
Sebastian Moore was a rake who needed taming! When Desirée Nash, a schoolmistress at Mrs. Guarding’s Academy for Girls in Steep Abbot, was propositioned by the handsome viscount, she was outraged. Sebastian might be irresistible and intriguing, but no respectable lady would agree to such an offer!
A year later, Desiree is forced to look for a new post as quickly as possible when she is falsely accused of improper conduct with the father of one of her pupils. But with her reputation in tatters, she has little choice but to turn to the dashing Lord Buckworth, and his outrageous proposal because she sees it as a way of getting to London where she hopes to secure more respectable employment.
However, Sebastian surprised everyone when he arranged for Desirée to have a chaperone with her. But when schemers disrupted their romance, Sebastian had to truly fight for Desirée and make an offer of the most permanent kind!
