As thirty-fifth in line for the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch knows her table manners. It's forks on the left, knives on the right not in His Grace, the duke's back
I have been entrusted by Her Majesty with grooming Jack Altringham the duke's newly discovered heir fresh from the Outback of Australia for high society. The upside is I am to live in luxury at one of England's most gorgeous stately homes. But upon my arrival, my dearest Darcy has been sent to fetch Jack, leaving me stuck in a manor full of miscreants displeased with the discovery of my new ward.
No sooner has the lad been retrieved than the duke announces he wants to choose his own heir. Then after quite the hubbub, Jack's hunting knife somehow finds its way into the duke's back. Eyes fall, backs turn, and fingers point to the young heir. As if the rascal weren t enough of a handful, now he's suspected of murder. Jack may be wild, but I d bet the crown jewels it wasn t he who killed the duke
