It seemed impossible...At first sight, schoolteacher Elizabeth Burbridge knew Lord Alec Sinclair was the man of her dreams - her wicked, heathen dreams such as dedicated educators were not supposed to have! His sensuality threatened her every moral scruple, but the devilish man proved as persistent as the intruder of her sleep.

Alec was puzzled by his fascination with his daughter's prickly schoolmistress, though the more he saw of her, the more challenged he was to properly seduce the proper Miss Burbridge. Yet, despite his fierce determination, the tantalizing object of his fevered pursuit proved as elusive as a dream...

The book started out well with lots of detail and atmosphere of a Victorian girl's school, but it soon became shallow & uninvolving once the characters started going about the chessboard. Well, maybe the author thought it was a chessboard, but it was more like checkers. Starting about 2/3rds of the way in, what the characters do or think make no logical sense & people run hellbent from household to household on the slightest pretext or whim. It was bad, but not outrageously so, oddly enough.
