When the Marquis of Westham spends 5 years at his country estate, what is a bored household of servants in London to do? Why rent out the rooms in the mansion of course! And what a wacky bunch of tenants it is, with one beautiful young miss in the group. She's looking for a husband and he has decided to set up his nursery. But does that mean he'll marry a girl with such off the wall characters for family members?
I really enjoyed this book! At first glance, I thought from the book's title that it would be a mystery. It turned out that it's not, but it is a romance set in motion by the butler. It was a lot of fun to read and is one of my favorites!
What a charming story! It's a little silly, but very funny and a lot of fun.
Like every noble in the London peerage, Morgan Drummond, Marquis of Westham, expects his butler to be awaiting his return home-even when that return follows a five-year absence. But he didn't expect the horde of strangers who've taken up residence in his house, courtesy of that enterprising butler and a discreet classified ad. Morgan's plan to toss his unwelcome tenants into the street is thwarted by a beautiful but indomitable debutante, Miss Emma Clifford-who's not averse to a bit of blackmail for a good cause.
Now Morgan finds himself squiring the lovely Emma to the ton's most fashionable events-and what's more surprising, he's beginning to enjoy it. Surely he's not falling for such an infuriating woman, even if she does have a way of making him forget his own name? That butler has a lot to answer for-but then again, it's so hard to find good help...
