His Naughty Maid: Delightful Doings in Dudley Crescent
Now she needs his help. But she will absolutely not be a cake about him…and fall for him again!
He’s determined to help her, keep her…and love her.
But what will the ton say when a noble viscount abandons his wits and falls for the woman who was his maid? His life? His very breath?
* * * * * * * * * *
At No. 6, Viscount Rockingham humors his sister by taking on an extra housemaid. One he does not need. But no sooner does said woman stand before him when he rejoices at sight of the lovely creature who once made all his days sweet.
Jessica Archer needs a position…and a place to make a new life. In hiding. She’s not a housemaid but a renowned chef pâtissière, up from Brighton and escaping a man who would kill her for the crime she saw him commit one morning on the beach. Working for Charlie—(she really must call him Lord Rockingham)—is not ideal, but she will not make a cake of herself over him! As a girl, she loved him far too dearly and suffered a broken heart. Yes, of course, their sad affair left her with an iron backbone. She’s needed it to survive, prosper and carve her reputation as a talented cook.
But she’s frightened, shaken, recalling once before when another man destroyed another whom she loved.
So she’ll take safety in Charlie’s house. But even as Jess warns herself not to take comfort in his arms, she’s never found another who rivals his charm. Charlie has always been far above her touch, even though when they were young and promised each other undying devotion, class differences did not matter.
For Charlie, the intervening years have shown him that she’s the only one who can sweeten his bland days. As he works to protect her from a clever stalker, he vows that this time he’ll ignore any rule, break any barrier…or kill any man who’d hurt her and deprive them of the happiness they both so richly deserve.
But will he succeed?
And can he ignore the dictates of the ton to marry the famous cook?
Or will she leave him for personal success…and let him live alone in want of her love?
If you love witty historical romance, starring endearing heroes and sassy heroines featuring (gasp!) servants, this upstairs-downstairs comedy is for you! Buy HIS NAUGHTY MAID to begin laughing!
