Eden Barrett's dream is to become an artist, but there's no way she can afford the tuition. After her father's death, she needs to seek employment, and hopes to find an artist needing an assistant or an apprentice. After writing many artists and only one willing to hire her who had questionable motives, she realized this wasn't going to happen.
Since Eden successfully taught her three sisters and two brothers, finding a job as a governess was fairly easy. What she wanted though was a position that would still allow her the opportunity to pursue her dream. There is one job with promise.
Colin Aston, Seventh Earl of Edmond, is in need of a governess for his younger sister, Diane. During Miss Barrett's interview, he discovered who her father was and wanted to send her away. His sister pleas for Eden to stay swayed his decision. Against his better judgment, he hired her but with a warning.
"Miss Barrett...You are daughter of a vicar, a man whose sermons I was privileged to hear as a boy, a very convincing orator. That fact may make your employ more desirable to some. To me it is impediment. I fear you may have inherited the propensity to sermonize. You will teach my sister the usual material without reference to matters of faith if you please. My sister and I are not religious; I will not have her badgered into a belief against her will."
Eden has faith and draws strength from God. Colin has been hurt and his heart is closed. As the attraction between them ignites, forces beyond their control threaten to keep them apart. In the end, Colin will need to find faith in God or risk losing what he holds dear.
