Patience Creighton has devoted her life to running her father's boarding school. But when the enigmatic master of the estate appears at her door, battered and unconscious, the young headmistress suddenly finds her livelihood--and her heart --in the hands of one dangerously handsome gentleman.

At twenty-five, Patience Creighton is already a spinster. The busy headmistress of Rosemere always expected a dashing man to sweep her off her feet and take her away . . . but that man never came. And since her father's death, keeping the school running and her mother happy has been plenty to keep her occupied.

William Sterling dallied his way into financial trouble and mortal danger. When he is assaulted by his creditors' henchmen on the road home from a tavern, he guides his horse to the doorstep of his tenant, the Rosemere School for Young Ladies. After being tended to by Patience, the wounded William rides off into the dawn--but makes a point to learn more about the lovely headmistress.

As he spends more time at Rosemere, something delicate begins to develop between William and Patience. But that will not deter William's creditors. With little money to repay his debts, and less for the upkeep of his estate, it becomes clear that sacrificing Rosemere may be the only way to preserve his legacy. But it may also cost him his happiness.

I liked it!

Patience and William were so cute together though I wish they'd spend more time together.

The story's pretty much what was expected plus more. I liked the Ewan angle though I wish he'd been fleshed out more. And poor Cassandra, she was forgotten pretty quickly. A quick mention (maybe a letter by her) during the epilogue would've been nice.

I stopped reading this. I didn't mind her first book in the series, but this one was too much for me to handle. It's badly written and has a predictable plot. I skimmed the end and it turned out exactly how I thought it would. The characters couldn't stop thinking about each other after meeting for 5 seconds when they should have been thinking about a lot of more important things. If you like cheesy, predictable stuff then read this, but otherwise, skip it. The only thing I like about this book is the cover.

After struggling to find a new book, I picked this one up. It captured my interest from the first chapter, and I read steadily until the end.
It was a pretty good story: had some gripping moments, the requisite romantic scenes, and a touch of mystery throughout. The romance was a little too thick for my taste, but if you like romance without trash, you should appreciate it.
