HEAVEN SENT . . . Lady Sophia Rowley is a widow — for the third time. After she bore the late Baron Rowley two heirs, Sophia courted with London’s high society, earning a tarnished reputation and the scorn of the ton. Now, in a self-imposed exile in Yorkshire, she discovers that her husband’s will names the local vicar legal guardian of her sons. Even more surprising is how handsome Charles Heywood is . . .
Although he tutored the young Rowley boys, the news of his guardianship is as much a shock to Charles as it is to Lady Sophia. Despite her notoriety, Charles believes that the children need their mother to guide them. He also believes Sophia’s reputation is more rumor than truth and that she needs to be cared for as much as her children. But the care she desires from Charles is of a more physical nature — a temptation the vicar is finding increasingly difficult to resist.
