the Heir by Grace Burrowes

It's my guilty pleasure that I love!!!!
Gayle Windham, Earl of Westhaven, is the first legitimate son and heir to the Duke of Moreland. To escape his father's inexorable pressure to marry, he decides to spend the summer at his townhouse in London, where he finds himself intrigued by the secretive ways of his beautiful housekeeper...


Anna Seaton is a beautiful, talented, educated woman, which is why it is so puzzling to Gayle Windham that she works as his housekeeper.

As the two draw closer and begin to lose their hearts to each other, Anna's secrets threaten to bring the earl's orderly life crashing down - and he doesn't know how he's going to protect her from the fallout - stolen from

I enjoyed this one because it takes me back to the prim and proper times people once believed in, when the guy was still noble and honorable (except when the beautiful woman was around). The females are always in distress but try to fix it themselves. And then the gallant Englishmen with some title (typically) Duke comes charging in and saves her and life is full of love and happiness. The classic love story...HOW I LOVE YOU!

This one is no different. Westhaven has not met a woman he loves until he meets Anna and he can't help but fall for her because she is thoughtful and kind to his household because she is the housekeeper (do you smell scandal). She also is honest with him when everyone else around him burdens him and keeps him at bay.

Anna like every damsel has a secret a jackwagon of a brother who tries to sell her to a grotesque man. Luckily Westhaven is high enough up in the ranks to take care of the situation.
