They Were Worlds Apart . . .
When her father's death left her penniless, spirited Daphne Barclay was forced to make her own way in the world. Taking a position as governess at Scotland's Rathmore Castle seemed like a sensible idea, until Colin Douglas, her charges' older brother, unexpectedly returned from London. Mistaking Colin, the formidable Duke of Rathmore, for an intruder, she struck him with a candlestick only to see stars days later when the handsome Scotsman kissed her.
. . . Until Desire United Them
Family responsibilities and societal expectations demanded that Colin marry a titled woman of wealth, but irrepressible Daphne had already stolen his heart. If only the beautiful governess would refrain from her ridiculous antics in the name of his siblings' education, like tramping about in the castle's suit of armor! Colin didn't know what to do with the beautiful girl he loved so passionately except take her in his arms.
