Spinster Miss Eleanor Lockhart is suddenly homeless and employment is her only option. Ruined after succumbing to a scoundrel’s excessive charm nearly a decade ago, she’s lucky to obtain a position as a paid companion and committed to behaving with the utmost propriety. She definitely shouldn’t be in the arms of a man capable of utterly destroying what little remains of her reputation...

Titus St. John, Duke of Kendal, is known as the Forbidden Duke, a mysterious, intimidating figure who enters Society just once each year at his stepmother’s ball. A decade ago, he was a devil-may-care rake until his idle roguery brought about the ruin of Eleanor Lockhart—and his resulting self-imposed isolation. Now she’s back, and she needs his help. But by “saving” her, he may just ruin her life all over again.


Miss Eleanor Lockhart has got to find somewhere to live and an income since her father lost everything.  She destroyed her chances of marriage years ago by allowing a rake a kiss and being ruined.  Hopefully she can be a lady's companion. 
Titus St. John the Duke of Kendal regrets the way he and his friends behaved years ago.  He now stays away from society and concentrates on his lands and family. 
A lovely romance that gives everyone hope for a second chance.  All the characters are a lot of fun and learn what is really important in life and what is not. 
This is the beginning of a fabulous series.  Each book can be read alone. 
I loved it.

Her happy places are Disneyland and Labor Day weekend at the Gorge.
