Book description
"Why did you leave?"

The Marquis of Sarle's question took Nolita by surprise. "Her Ladyship... dismissed me," she stammered.


Her heart quaking, she revealed the humiliating charges, certain that telling him would be the end of everything. Yet instead, he asked her forgiveness. And, very gently, his lips sought hers.

Then something warm and wonderful like a wave from the sea rose within her, growing more in-tense and glorious until it touched her lips and carried her soul singing with the music of angels towards the sky.

"I love you, my darling," he said at last, "and as it is impossible for me to contemplate life without you, I can only ask you how soon you will marry me."

No descriptions found.

Demure and self-deprecating the beautiful young Nolita Walford has been left all but penniless after the tragic death of both her parents in a coach crash and, envious of Nolita's unassuming beauty, her unsympathetic aunt, Lady Katherine, dispatches her to work as Governess to Bettine, the eleven year old daughter of the Marquis of Sarle. Feeling frightened and apprehensive, Nolita says a tearful farewell to her favorite horse, Eros, and her beloved home where she has been so happy and sets off for an unknown and uncertain future. Nolita is dismayed to find that young Bettine is not only a Lady and heiress to her American grandfather's vast fortune but also a spoilt little madam who is almost uncontrollable. Miraculously, Nolita's love of horses and gentle humble approach wins over her pupil, to the astonishment of the Marquis, who regards Nolita with new respect and admiration. But just as Nolita has taken Bettine to her heart and lost her own to the handsome Marquis, a ruthless American gang kidnaps her and Bettine, threatening to kill them unless they receive a ransom of one million dollars. Now all hope of life, and of love, seems lost as Nolita sends out little white doves of prayer to the one man who can save them from a dreadful fate.… (more)
