To Marry the Governess
Mr. Calum Gordon of Shawsta House needs assistance. Taking in orphaned boys and providing them with an education is simple enough, but young Blaine demands a woman's touch. Calum cannot in good conscience send the girl away, and even Robbie, the oldest and most stubborn of the boys, thinks Blaine should remain. Calum has no choice but to advertise for a governess.
Mrs. Charlotte Edwards, former governess to two spoiled sons of an earl in Sussex, is near the Scottish border visiting her aunt when she sees an advertisement that could end her brief bout of unemployment. Charlotte loves children and hopes to open a school of her own someday; her time in Scotland might be exactly what she needs to finish bolstering the accounts drained by paying off her late husband's debts so she can fulfil her dream.
The boys of Shawsta House do not initially take to the thought of an Englishwoman as their governess, however, and Charlotte does not initially take to the feeling of her knees wobbling when Calum's amber eyes turn gold. Nonetheless, Blaine is determined that Charlotte stay at Shawsta House, and Blaine always gets her way. When Robbie sees that Charlotte might be the one to make Calum laugh, he decides that Charlotte might not be so dreadful after all.
With the help of a tale of a pale lady who haunts Shawsta House, can the children convince Calum to marry the governess?
