Miss Helena Wainwright is determined to see her nieces and nephew well settled with their new guardian, the Duke of Rotherham. After six months of transition, the children are beginning to bond with their uncle, but Helena and the Duke aren’t able to get much past the barest of civilities. Now that the duke is poised to offer for the shy Miss Fanshawe, Helena is horrified to discover an awful secret about the young lady and her scheming mother. What is she going to do--keep the secret or reveal all in her own bid for the duke’s heart? Ready to settle down and provide a stable environment for his wards, Vernon Wroxby, the Duke of Rotherham, has decided the amenable Miss Fanshawe will do, even if he dislikes her outspoken, uncouth mama. If he could just quit wondering what Miss Wainwright is doing (and with whom) he’d be able to appreciate the match a bit more. But as his wards begin to rebel against the idea of this marriage, and he starts to realize that his affections really reside with Miss Wainwright, will one determined marriage-mart mama ruin any chance he might have for true happiness?

Ha, I dunno why, but the characters remind me of the actor and actress from North and South BBC tv series

I think Emily is and her "mother" needs her to get married asap to try prevent a scandal and then she can also claim a premature birth

Are we to assume then that Helena must be Henry's wife's sister?  If so, why isn't her sister taking care of the children?  Has she already died?  
                              Thanks for any clarification.
It's quite unusual too have a character with this age, which makes me feel excited, because most of the book I've read on Wattpad has much younger characters

I love these kids already... hahaha! Reminds me of Sir Philip's children from "to Sir Philip with love"

Very interesting so far, though I must say I always think of Uncle Vernon from Harry Potter
