The highlight of the holiday season is the opportunity to spend time with beloved friends and family. Having a place to belong, knowing you are among people who love and value you, is a deeply-held human desire--one that heroine Olivia Overton of THE TEMPTING OF THE GOVERNESS still cherishes even after the repeated blows of the loss of her mother, her home and her fortune.

A plain, no-nonsense woman who has put romance behind her, Olivia’s dream was to set up a household with her dear friend Sara Standish, the two of them devoting their lives to the political reform work of the Ladies’ Committee. But when unwise investments made by her trustees leave her virtually penniless, Olivia rejects the alternative of a distasteful marriage of convenience and elects to go into service as a governess.

Burying her own anguish, Olivia travels to the countryside to care for two little girls, orphans unexpectedly cast into the care of their aloof guardian, Colonel Hugh Glendenning. Not only does she soon clash with the Colonel, who shows much less concern about his wards than Olivia feels he should, the two also share an immediate—and unwelcome—attraction.

As Olivia gradually penetrates the Colonel’s wall of protective isolation, she finds herself increasingly drawn to this man who has weathered so much sorrow and loss. But can an employer and a governess break out of their expected roles—and find the love that will fulfill them both?
