Overview

WHEN ALL SEEMED LOST. . .

Katherine Gardiner, a young English widow, has only one dream: to protect her son—a future duke—from her merciless father-in-law. Determined and desperate, she has no option but to take the guise of a housekeeper and escape to Yorkshire where the only hope is the enigmatic Earl of Kenrick. . .

. . .LOVE SAVED THE DAY

In all his years spent roaming the world, Jeremy Chilton never braced himself for the burden of a much-damaged inheritance. Now, the new Earl of Kenrick must save his family legacy and raise his motherless young daughter as a proper English lady. His only salvation is his beautiful housekeeper, Kate. But as her secrets unravel, much that is puzzling about her falls into place. No wonder the Earl has caught himself imagining her more wife than employee. Clearly she belongs at Kenrick—safe in his arms. Now, if only he can convince her to agree. . .

Young widow Katherine Arthur Gardiner & her young son, Ned, are forced to flee the Duke, aka Grandmeanie, to go to London. The Duke was abusing her son & saying it was to prepare Ned for when he inherited. Her attorney got her a housekeeping job for the new Earl of Kendrick. The Earl is Jeremy Chilton, who just inherited his deceased father & brothers' title. Katherine's attorney is also Jeremy's friend & business partner. Katherine, who now is called Mrs. Arthur, & her son go to live at Jeremy's estate with his precocious daughter, Cassandra. There are mysterious happenings, the local rich Sir Mortimer making trouble,a growing & deep friendship between Ned & Cass, the "I always get what I want" Charlotte, sabotage aplenty, a huge debt over Jeremy's head & a budding love in this romance. Will Jeremy need to marry the spoiled daughter? Can Kat ask Jeremy for help with the evil Duke? When will the deep doodoo hit the fan? I wanted this book because I loved the book cover & Ms. Counts is a new-to-me author. I loved Kat & her son's story of fleeing & starting over. The begin of this tale, when Jeremy is found in the wilds of America, with his half Native American daughter, was so very descriptive. Ms. Counts spun such a very visual tale, that I could feel the fresh breeze & smell the roasting meat. Jeremy had some serious struggling with Cass & her many changes. This poor little girl's essence was slowly choked out of her by her racist nurse. Ms. Counts wrote many great secondary characters like Aunt Elinor, but she can serious write a great evil & cruel character, like snobby Charlotte & her daddy. This book had many good points like the growing friendship between Ned & Cass, also the bond of Kat & Cass, but my favorite part was the troublemaking daddy & daughter get knock down a few pegs! There were separate stories going on, but to me the stories never blended together. Ms. Counts did have some good points in this tale, but it wasn't romantic read to me. I give this book my score of 2 fingers up & 5 toes. NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.

I enjoyed this book a great deal. Even tho the plot was rather predictable, strong characters made up for that. A lovely story of family created and villains frustrated
