BORN TO SCANDAL 1
What life will Anna find for herself in Lord Brentmore’s shadowy manor?
Anna was once the companion of the Earl of Lawton’s daughter. She grew up beside her and they received the same education…until she was suddenly relieved of her duties and introduced to her future employer—Lord Brentmore. Lord Brentmore had lost his wife and was now looking for a family tutor. He was doubtful of Anna’s usefulness but hired her regardless. A handsome but mysterious lord, a cold servant, an air of mystery… Anna’s struggle has begun!

Wit the heroine's rich companion getting her debut, she's been outed of the job. She finds another as a governess to the hero's two children because she impressed him with her speech. He also makes her the boss of the servants back at the mansion, it's a job she's no shrinking violet. She makes a negative impression on the bossy servants by not backing down and a positive impression on the children. They go around and work on agriculture. Something that puts the hero in a bad mood. It's because he's marriage product between an english nobleman's son and an Irish common lass; a real scandal and a "shame" to his British side. His father was fine with being disowned but died early on along with the hero's mother. He lived with his Irish grandfather till his cruel British grandfather took him away when he ran out of heirs. The heroine does convince the hero to let them continue their studies further in agriculture and not to send his son to a mental institution. It's because she's sees there's something else going on. It turns out she's right because the son doesn't speak or refuse to be touch because he's mental but because he was horribly abused by his mother. The hero sees the extent her torture from the son's nightmares and daughter's tearful words. The heroine comforts and encourages him in his hour of sadness to move from the past and focus on healing his children. I liked both methods our main couple used to help the little boy speak again with the use of animals and telling the daughter she an't speak for him anymore. The hero and heroine also struggle with their developing feelings for each other because not only are they different stations but the hero is in the middle of marrying a respectable woman to bury his wife's scandal when she rode with her lover and died by falling off her horse. The hero and heroine also work together in ridding the bad influences like the servants the dead wife brought along. By the time, they get the little boy to talk, the heroine is called home by the news of her mother's grave illness. The hero goes along with her in disguise as her support and she does need it. She goes home to find only her mother dead and buried but according to her drunk father that she's the product of an affair between her mother and the Lord whose daughter just having to be the heroine's companion. The story to be continued......
