Synopses & Reviews
As thirty-fifth in line for the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch may not be the most sophisticated young woman, but she knows her table manners. Its forks on the left, knives on the right—not in His Majestys back
Here I am thinking the education I received at my posh Swiss finishing school would never come in handy. And while it hasnt landed me a job, or a husband, it has convinced Her Majesty the Queen and the Dowager Duchess to enlist my help. I have been entrusted with grooming Jack Altringham—the Dukes newly discovered heir fresh from the Outback of Australia—for high society.
The upside is I am to live in luxury at one of Englands most gorgeous stately homes. But upon arrival at Kingsdowne Place, my dearest Darcy has been sent to fetch Jack, leaving me stuck in a manor full of miscreants none of whom are too pleased with the discovery of my new ward.
And no sooner has the lad been retrieved than the Duke announces he wants to choose his own heir. With the house in a hubbub over the news, Jacks hunting knife somehow finds its way into the Dukes back. Eyes fall, backs turn, and fingers point to the young heir. As if the rascal wasnt enough of a handful, now hes suspected of murder. Jack may be wild, but Id bet the crown jewels it wasnt he who killed the Duke
