Nora Beasley is a confident, dangerously inquisitive, and curious woman who has recently been hired to tutor the children of Bellamy Manor, home of Sebastian Bellamy, Duke of Harwich. Nora, seeking to fit in, quickly befriends the Duke's favorite groom, a relationship that solidifies Nora's place at Bellamy Manor. As family lines are extended and moments revealed, Nora learns of Sebastian's relation to the unforgiving, masochistic King. It is a sealed fate to catch the King's eye, which Nora does; however, his is not the only eye battling for her. It quickly becomes clear to those at Bellamy Manor that lives seemingly secure are so easily changed.

I shouldn't have talked about completion is beautiful as it is. When i had downloaded the story, a detail mentioned 'updated' so  probably I assumed it was not complete . Also the end is so poignant, one can't help wishing at least once that it didn't have to end like that.
