The Lord of Lost Causes by Kate Pearce
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
THE LORD OF LOST CAUSES for Kate Pearce is the First book in the Millcastle Series . This is the story of Caroline Harding and Francis Grafton.
Caroline is a widower trying to help take care of her mother and sisters. They have fallen on hard times and struggling with the rent money...not to mention that her mother has a gambling habit.
When the rent manger threatens to throw them out she goes to bring him some of the rent money and meets Francis who is the actual landlord. But he isn't any softer to her and prosecution her. When Caroline said no, he gave her a job of straitening out his books that the rent manger is messing up. Francis let her know that he has hopes in the time she is working for him that she will come to him freely.
Francis is set on Caroline being his mistress but there is something about her that deep down he wants more than that.
This book you can't put down...loved it!
