A Lady’s Deception Lady Jane Stanhope, vowing that no one would bridle her spirit, had devised the most extraordinary plan to escape an arranged marriage. The high-spirited, highborn, and highly pampered Lady Jane was running away . . . to enter service!
As governess to the ward of the mysterious Marquess of Saybrook, Lady Jane was posing as a plain Jane in order to keep her independence. Before long this most unconventional governess was winning the heart of the melancholy little boy in her charge—and losing her own to the haughty, extremely handsome lord of the manor. Alas, Jane knew that the most a titled gentleman could offer a mere governess was — ruin. Now Jane had to find a way to be a lady again — before she gave in to the temptation of the Marquess's kisses.
