Enter our heroine. The fair Lady Marion who is working as a governess incognito. She comes across to me as a giggling teenager. Which appeals not only to the 4 year old but dear old dad as well. Not that he doesn't fight it. Happiness is not his calling. Nor the local minister either who seems to have no problem chastising Layton at every opportunity. Perhaps he needed to be reminded that Layton's brother the Earl gave him his living and could take it away at will.
Then there is the child. The writer does her dialogue in child speak. You know where she keeps mispronouncing words. How cute. Not.
The H realizes early on that he is in love with the heroine. A governess. Oh, the scandal. So he rejects her and keeps her on her side of the tracks. The big reveal. She isn't just a governess extraordinaire. She is a LADY. He chases her down. He proposes. Well I won't give away the ending. But if a depressed H and a ditzy heroine ring your bell this could work for you.
That aside it was a wonderful CLEAN story and I will probably reread it in the future.
