After her parents died in an accident and her brother gambles away her inheritance and dowry, leaving her to fend for herself while he runs off to the colonies, Miss Felicia Scott must find a way to keep a roof over her head. No longer able to enter the Marriage Mart but certainly not of the servant class, the only option is to find a position as governess.
Her luck finally turns when an acquaintance refers her to the haughty widower Lord Victor Astley, Earl of Standish. His spoiled, seven-year-old daughter has been through three governesses in the 18 months since her mother died. The earl is highly doubtful the young, inexperienced Miss Scott could possible manage his irascible daughter but, since he is desperate, he agrees to give her a chance. Much to the astonishment of the entire household, Felicia succeeds beautifully, bringing the little lady under control and brightening the lives of everyone she comes in contact with, including the jaded earl. Will her joyful spirit be able to finally melt his resistant heart?

"Typical Lord and the Governess"
The worst narrator. Never want to listen to that woman's voice. I skipped through to the end just to assure myself that the Lord would make an inappropriate move on the Governess.
