The brand new novel in Mary Balogh's SIMPLY series of historical romances
Tall, dark, and exquisitely sensual, Joseph Fawcitt is the epitome of male perfection. Not that Claudia Martin is looking for a lover. Or a husband. As headmistress of Miss Martin s School for Girls, she long ago resigned herself to a life of spinsterhood - until now.
Irresistibly attracted to Claudia, Joseph embarks on an outrageous plan of seduction.

Even if that means breaking every rule for a love that is simply perfect
