When Lord Zeke Thurgood, grandson to the Earl of Claybourne, returns to London following a trip abroad, he’s flummoxed by his grandfather’s new servant, Kit. Young Kit’s not only woefully inadequate, he’s odd. Witness Kit’s penchant for staring at Zeke like a cat eyes fresh cream.
Lady Kitty Hastings thought hiding as a boy servant would safeguard her from her guardian. Enter Lord Zeke Thurgood. Magnificent, maddening Zeke whose grousing unwittingly leads Kitty’s nemesis straight to her.
Zeke is still reeling over Kitty’s true identity when his grandfather announces their fake engagement. Emphasis on fake. Zeke’s plans don’t include marriage, much less staying in England. Only, after Kitty assures him he’s not the man for her it dawns on him—Kitty’s irresistible mix of courage, determination, and charm are exactly what he’s been missing. Now he needs to convince her they’re a perfect match, or lose the best thing that ever happened to him.
