Helen Fitzwilliam is not about to take no for an answer. Reclusive Sir Alistair Munroe might insist he has no need for a housekeeper, but Helen and her young daughter and son desperately need a place to stay. So as far as Helen is concerned, Alistair is getting a housekeeper whether he wants one or not. As it turns out, Helen is exactly what Alistair needs. Not only does his incomparably lovely new employee begin to turn his disintegrating Scottish castle into a home, Helen also begins to work her subtle brand of magic on Alistair’s war-scarred soul. But just as things seem to be settling down, a secret from Helen’s past threatens to destroy not only everything for which she has worked so hard but also the lives of those she loves dearly. Hoyt works her own brand of literary magic on the classic Beauty and the Beast story in the exquisitely romantic, superbly sensual third addition to her extraordinary Georgian-set Legend of Four Soldiers series. --John Charles
