Rules of Respectability
Devon Mathewes, earl of Kerrich, finds his income and family name imperiled by his notorious reputation. So he demands three things. A sensible governess who will not wish to visit his bed--he can't be bothered to make love to every woman who wants him. An orphan he can adopt and seem to care for--his apparent kindness will cover him with respectability. And that his life not be unduly altered--the child and the governess should better his character without his participation.
As a condition of accepting the governess position, Miss Pamela Lockhart has rules of her own. Devon must at all times behave with propriety. She must be allowed to choose a suitable orphan. Most important, Devon must vow to never ever delve into Pamela's past or appearance lest he discover the deepest secrets of her heart.
Of course, rules are made to be broken . . .

Choose a bride from this year's debutantes.
Devon Mathewes, earl of Kerrich, has a plan that is sure to restore him to the Queen's favor.First, he must hire a sensible, unattractive governess. Next, he will see to adopting a properly grateful orphan, which will surely lend him a patina of respectability.

But of course, all rules are made to be broken . . .
