The new Earl of Wraxham, Lionel Westfall, is unprepared to move from town life to the doldrums of his late father's estate. He is even less prepared to find Sophie Bowerbank.

With six rebellious sons from a previous marriage, Lionel needs help. And Sophie seems the perfect choice. If she would take a chance on him, he would finish what they began so long ago.he would usher her through the kissing gate onto the glorious path beyond. Historical Romance Book Club selection!

Better than I thought I would be when I saw the cover. Loved the 6 boys, she was great. Cute. The new Earl of Wraxham doesn't know who is harder to control--his six young rebellious sons or Sophie Bowerbank, his sons' beautiful but headstrong teacher.

I like this book. It's not your usual historical.

I really liked most of this book. It was fast paced and great interaction between all of the characters. There are some inconsitencies in Sophie's stated age; she starts out as 35 then is magically "29" which made me go "eww" and then double check the lapse of time and ages when Sophie and Lionel were parted and then reunited. I'm going with her age as 35 when they're reunited.
