An Unlikely Lesson . . .
Emily Clarkson has a new teaching position far from the civilized London life she knows. Quick-witted and confident, Emily is up for the challenge, but she never expects the real test will be her employer, prosperous mill owner Daniel Lennox. She's expecting a country gentleman, not the brawny, outspoken creature who greets her in a blood-stained shirt. He's expecting a somber old maid, not an impertinent, snobbish girl. At each other's throats from day one, they are bound to end up in each other's arms.
But the more Emily learns about her new surroundings, the more she realizes the rural town of Glenfell has more than enough of the danger and intrigue she thought existed only in the big city. A mysterious feud has set Daniel and a withered old duke against each other, and the duke's new wife — Daniel's first love — isn't the only cause. Now the teacher must become the student if she is to save the man she has so recently grown to need!
