Heirs and Graces :
As thirty-fifth in line for the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch may not be the most sophisticated young woman, but she knows her table manners. Itâs forks on the left, knives on the right - not in His Majestyâs back . . .
Here I am thinking the education I received at my posh Swiss finishing school would never come in handy. And while it hasnât landed me a job, or a husband, it has convinced Her Majesty the Queen and the Dowager Duchess to enlist my help. I have been entrusted with grooming Jack Altringham - the Dukeâs newly discovered heir fresh from the Outback of Australia - for high society. The upside is I am to live in luxury at one of Englandâs most gorgeous stately homes. But upon arrival at Kingsdowne Place, my dearest Darcy has been sent to fetch Jack, leaving me stuck in a manor full of miscreantsâ¦none of whom are too pleased with the discovery of my new ward.
And no sooner has the lad been retrieved than the Duke announces he wants to choose his own heir. With the house in a hubbub over the news, Jackâs hunting knife somehow finds its way into the Dukeâs back. Eyes fall, backs turn, and fingers point to the young heir. As if the rascal wasnât enough of a handful, now heâs suspected of murder. Jack may be wild, but Iâd bet the crown jewels it wasnât he who killed the Duke . . .NOTE: This is a Scratch and Dent version and accordingly MAY NOT have a dust jacket.
