Charming story with an unusual twist. In order to gain her vast inheritance, Lady Margaret "Megan" must abide by her late grandfather's wishes and go into 'service' for 6 months. The lawyer is aghast - but Megan's affection for her lovingly eccentric grandfather, was reason enough for her to carry through with the masquerade.
She becomes a maid in the Earl of Arglye country home - believing that she is safe not only because it's well known the Earl doesn't dally with the 'lower orders' but because the estate was usually deserted!
Needlesstosay, the family chooses this time to visit and uncharacteristically Maid 'Meggy' becomes a companion to the Earl's scatterbrained mother, friend to his younger brother and...the Earl's greatest temptation!
