When the Earl of Stewkesbury takes his American cousins under his protection, he realizes that he needs help. Living in the wilderness has given the girls an unpolished charm that will not suit life among the nobility.
Now that the first two Bascombe sisters are affianced or wed, he turns his attention to Lily and Camellia. They are too old for a governess, but too unsophisticated for a society debut. On a recommendation from Lady Vivian Carlyle, he hires Eve Hawthorne, an army widow, to be a companion and guide for the sisters.
Eve is thrilled to be leaving her father's home. His new wife is quite overbearing and Eve spent too many years in charge of her own household. She hopes that the Bascombe sisters will like her and that they will benefit from her experiences in society.
Fitzhugh Talbot agreed to fetch the new companion for his brother. He did not expect her to be so young and lovely. While he entertains a few thoughts about seduction, Eve is determined to keep him at arm's length. The man is much too handsome and sure of himself. Eve needs to make sure her behavior is above reproach or she will lose the Earl's favor.
Where the Bascombe sisters go, things are never dull. Author Candace Camp delivers another witty, heartwarming and fast-paced novel with A Gentleman Always Remembers. Fitz and Eve can deny it all day, but their attraction is traveling down the road to love.
