Lady Hannah Steers is on a mission! She is pretty sure that the man who now owns her family home, is responsible for her brother's death and he must be a terrible person! She passes herself off as a housekeeper to gain access to the home and to her target. She must find a way to get him charged with something. Anything really, as long as she can then buy back her home.

Mr. Ross Jameson is doing his best to put down some roots. He comes from the streets and has made himself one of the richest and most successful businessmen in London, but he would like to have his sister and mother with him. Just not London, it is too dangerous for a young woman to live there, so he decides to make over a house he won in a card game.

I really loved this story! Lady Hannah is a stick in the mud for a housekeeper. The interaction between her and Mr. Jameson is hilarious. I liked that he enjoyed poking fun at her. Since he was not born to the aristocracy, he feels no compunction in pushing her buttons until she cracks. He even calls her "Prim" since she is always so prim and proper! He knows she is lying, but he thinks she is maybe a spy for The East India Company, who is his direct business rival.

The writing is fun and light. It was a fast read, but I will add this to my re-read list! Great characters always bring me back. I'm going to look for more by this author as well!
