Clementine by Isabel L. Martens
Clementine Pennington accepts a position as housekeeper in Lord Denby’s Highland home. She’s unaware that the devastatingly attractive, Ambrose Silverton, who hires her, actually intends her to be Denby’s next wife.
Silverton neglects to mention Denby’s five children or the monk, Appington, who cares for him. Thus begins a lively, but highly improper, correspondence that turns Clementine’s attraction to love. When she discovers Appington is physically abusing Denby, Clementine takes the family to London and Silverton’s protection. There she undertakes the daunting task of teaching Denby how to cope with his blindness, a success he mistakes for love. Silverton refuses to acknowledge the emotions drawing them together and, desperate, she seduces him. He continues to insist she must wed Denby. With no hoping of winning him, should she accept Denby’s proposal? Is there any way to win Silverton over?
