Arriving at Silvermere to take charge of six rebellious and rambunctious young girls, outspoken governess Samantha Prendergast unexpectedly falls in love with the children's handsome widowed father, Colonel William Gregory, but the dark secrets of the past could destroy their love. Original.


When Miss Samantha Prendregast arrives at Devil's Fell to take charge of six rebellious girls, the vibrant, outspoken governess is not quite prepared to deal with the tall, dark and dashing master of the grand estate. The children she can manage with intelligence, guile . . . and a little bribery. Their widowed father, Colonel William Gregory, is not so easily charmed -- and far too easy to fall in love with, which she dares not do.

William always cherished the orderliness of his life, until this captivating troublemaker began flouting his authority and distracting him with her witty defiance and breathtaking beauty. Despite the fact that they clash at every meeting, William finds himself inexplicablydrawn to Samantha's fire. And now he's even contemplating marriage, which would be sweet madness indeed.

But before he can successfully woo her, William must discover what it is that Samantha is hiding from him. But the secret the lady is preciously guarding is far too shocking and dangerous to ever reveal . . .

I have liked the Governess Brides series more as it has gone on, most likely because it has involved spies in the last few books. So even though this was mostly just a retelling of The Sound of Music (the children even sing!), the author still managed to make it work with her own twists.
