Julia was just too beautiful. More than once she had lost a position as governess for refusing the unwelcome advances of the men of the house. Now she was unemployed again, without fiends and without . . . Hope.
How then could she refuse this opportunity? All she must do to earn her pay was pretend to be the fiancée of a voting man whose real fiancée would never be acceptable to his uncle, the Earl of Combe.
In a month or so, the ailing Earl would succumb, leaving his fortune to the young man – and no harm would be done. At least, this was the plan!
