From Publishers Weekly
The wealthy and seemingly heartless Ian Blackheath is also Pendragon, the defender of American colonists and the scourge of Tories. He has sworn never to marry after seeing his mother fatally used by his father as a son-producing machine. In 1772, When Ian's estranged sister dies, leaving him her bratty eight-year-old daughter, Lucy ("I don't like other girls. They don't do what I tell them to"), Ian plans to ship the child off to boarding school. He brings her to British dressmaker Emily d'Autrecourt for some clothing, and she steals a wooden doll. But this doll contains a secret message for the Crown, for whom Emily is spying in exchange for a fresh start in the colonies. To get the doll back, Emily becomes Lucy's governess, and she and Ian find themselves strongly attracted to each other. Cates ( Crown of Flame ) compensates for a long set-up--which includes Emily's loss of her husband and young daughter--with endearing characters. Smart-mouthed Lucy is a refreshing contrast to the angelic children often found in romance novels, and Ian and Emily are realistically vulnerable. But an unbelievable ending mars this otherwise original story.

I found the ending a little unbelievable, predictable at the same time, but very satisfying.
For those who care, there's steamy, passionate sex.
I did like the heroine, Emily Rose and the very cheeky little girl, Lucy. Lucy was a delightfully hellish little terror. I'm sure the grownup version of her will be featured in some future book in this series.
Bottom line: I found this book easy to put down as it just didn't hold my interest.
