Who is this man? The Duke of Thanet may have hired her as a governess to his six-year-old son, but there is something ... different about the devilish rogue standing before her today. He seems to study her with an intensity she never noticed before, and he is certainly more charming than the last time they encountered each other. Was there always an alluring glint in his dark eyes? But the duke has a notoriously scandalous reputation, and Meriel will not let herself succumb. Masquerading as the duke was not the simple solution Richard O'Neill had envisioned. When his ailing half-brother, the real duke, asked him to protect his young heir from a greedy enemy, Richard agreed. But he never thought he'd be attracted to the inquisitive governess, or that each moment in her intoxicating presence would tempt him beyond all reason. And letting down his guard could prove dangerous ... especially to Richard's own heart.

The second of the Sisters of Willow Pond series follows the youngest daughter Meriel, governess to the six year old heir to the Duke of Thanet. Richard O'Neill, the illegitimate eldest son to the former Duke, is asked by his sickly brother Cecil, Duke of Thanet, to masquerade as Cecil in order to protect Cecil's son and find out who is threatening him. The usual problems of mistaken identity result as Richard struggles to pretend to be his disreputable brother and Meriel finds herself attracted to Richard, thinking he is the duke, and yet disgusted that she could like someone with his reputation.
