Finding the extensive family at Aldershaw in complete disarray, Lucinda Stiles takes on the task of putting the house in order while trying desperately not to fall in love with the handsome owner, Sir Robert Sandifort.
The woman makes him mad as fire…
Sir Robert has never known a woman like Lucy Stiles before. She’s pigheaded, determined, and far too clever for her own good. But her efforts at restoring order to Aldershaw, his Hampshire home, force him to recognize her worth. Difficult circumstances within his family, however, hold him hostage, especially the desperate plight of his younger siblings under the thumb of their father’s widow. Lucy, however, seems able to manage the wicked step-mother and at the same time resolves a whole host of conflicts. Yet when it comes to Lucy, his own emotions are in an uproar. He desires her but why must she challenge him at every turn? Will he one day be able to understand her? Or will she grow tired of their quarrels and choose to create a new life for herself away from Aldershaw?
The man tears at her sanity…
Lucy has known Robert forever, but from the time she can remember they’ve quarreled, always butting heads over the smallest things. As his ward, she must remain in his house until she turns five-and-twenty in just a few short months, then she will be free to manage her inheritance on her own. But when she enters his unruly home, governed by the most selfish woman Lucy has ever known, she readily embraces the difficulties laid out before her. Yet, why must Robert continually set up her back? Worse, he insists at the most inopportune moments to kiss her, making her feel that maybe more resides for her at Aldershaw than she ever imagined possible. But beneath his hard exterior, does he truly possess a heart that can beat just for her?
