Typical Quick. A heroine whose intellect has made her unaware of her feminine side until it is awakened by, in this case,Viscount Chillhurst masquerading as the tutor hired by her uncle to teach the nephews she has taken under her wings. Add a lost treasure and a few villains... a good light read...
