My Thoughts: 
If you are a fan of romance novels where everything turns out right in the end and boy gets girl, in this case, earl and housekeeper, and plenty of sex than this novel is for you. I hadn’t read a romance like this in years because they generally do not hold my interest anymore and I am older now too. This is a story where the Gayle, Earl of Westhaven becomes intrigued with his housekeeper Anna. Anna came to the earls household, with a younger woman, where Anna becomes the housekeeper and the young woman Morgan becomes a maid. Anna has secrets and whenever Gayle tries to get Anna to confide in him she shy’s away. The earl and Anna start becoming very close and their relationship soon becomes very sexual. This is where I had a problem with the story, not the sex so much but the fact that the sexual encounters that Anna allows Gayle to have with her is alright but once the earl and his brothers find out Anna’s secrets, all of a sudden it is improper for Anna and Gayle to continue to have sexual encounters. In spite of that I did enjoy the story line and the other characters, which included Gayle’s siblings and parents. Of course there is always the bad guys and there are a few in this story. Like I said if you like a steamy romance this is a must read.
I received this ARC from Sourcebooks Casablanca and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
