While investigating a suspicious death, private-inquiry agent Ambrose Wells finds himself on the grounds of Aldwick Castle - and in the midst of utter chaos. The ramshackle castle is in flames - and a beautiful woman and four young girls are taking flight on horseback. It turns out that the strong-minded Miss Concordia Glade and her four bright students are on the run from a notorious London crime lord who'll stop at nothing to destroy them. Now their only hope is Ambrose, a confirmed loner with more than his share of secrets - and more than his share of desire for the unconventional teacher. And as Ambrose and Concordia risk everything to bring down a criminal mastermind, they will also be forced to battle something even greater: the steamy passion that threatens their hard-won independence....

Good Balance

This is a delightful story, in spite of being based on a truly dark time for the poor and unprotected children of the Victorian era. These particular orphans and their teacher manage to turn glittering Society and its dark counterpart on its head.

The teacher, Concordia, is in the mold of the best of Amanda Quick's characters. She is smart, quirky, and cheerfully keeps moving forward no matter how badly things get.

The narrator reads most of her characters with a shrill voice. Nevertheless the listener has no trouble knowing who is speaking.

Even though this book has been in print/audio for a good while, it is still fresh and compelling.

Wonderful Story

Another great story from Amanda Quick. Very entertaining and witty. I was fast-paced but still you understood the layout of the book.
