Simon thought that his mother-in-law was a godsend, but it would not be an exaggeration to call her the devil incarnate. Mercy used a child to further her own ends, and she would go to any lengths to keep the earl and her grandchild under her control. Simon kept Mercy under his roof even though he knew she was toxic. How, exactly, did she poison Emily’s mind? Why did Emily weep so much to force him to bring her back? Mercy was unkind to her granddaughter, so she should have been happy to see her gone; it was a mystery.Simon went to London to get a governess for his daughter. Was he too late, or would Vivienne be able to save Emily from her grandmother’s machinations? Matters would get complicated by Simon and Vivienne’s feelings for one another. Then, there was Mercy who did not want a governess to undermine her power. It would be a twisted tale of treachery and deception. Could love win against someone as evil as Mercy? Simon and Vivienne must stop resisting the attraction they have for one another. They must allow themselves to accept that love so that it could win the war. I loved this story and would recommend it to those who like historical romance with mystery and suspense.
While anxiously awaiting the coming of the main book (Effie and Highcliff) , the Hellion series are becoming too obvious and stale. I am all for building up the suspense of romantic drama but this story came to the sexual point too quickly, therefore leaving me with a feeling of rushing to get to the end.
I love this author. She tells a wonderful story and does it to perfection. Some of her other books seemed to end too soon and felt unfinished. This one feels complete. Another well written story I had a hard time putting down.

Enjoyable story except for the sex scenes. As a 79 year old adult, I have enjoyed sex and there are less graphic words to describe an enjoyable pastime.Characters are well developed and should make parents think about why their children have problems after daycare even if it is a relative.Highly recommend this book.
This was an exciting story of a young girl and her father, whose mother had died and mother’s mother had stayed in the house. She was a selfish, evil grandmother to the girl sucking out all her natural joy by filling the young girl’s head with lies and fear. The man, tired of the joyless atmosphere of his home, and hoping to bring back the laughter and happiness his daughter once knew, hires a governess. There are huge battles between the father and the grandmother, who does not want to lose the free rein she’s had in the house with her young granddaughter. Over his hiring of the governess. The grandmother tried to make a scandal between the father and governess, saying the governess is offering the father, an Earl, her favors in order to become his wife. That frightens the girl even more thinking that then her father will send her away to a school! The battle is finally won when the father sends the grandmother away from there house where she had no more influence over her granddaughter. The book was good except for the short part where the governess and the Earl end up getting married, and the gratuitous sex descriptions in the story! After their marriage, the book shifts to another character, preparing the reader for the next book.
