My Fair Groom
Linda Rae Sande
If people only see what they expect to see ... then why doesn't she?
When her friend Lady Samantha spies a rather handsome groom from her bedchamber window, Julia Harrington agrees the man is far too handsome to be a groom. "He could be a gentleman," she tells Sam, thinking the servant could be taught how to bow and dance and dress like a gentleman. Doubting Julia can accomplish such a task, Samantha dares her to do just that - and in time for the Mayfield ball - in just three weeks!
Alistair Comber, the second son of the Earl of Aimsley, was fighting Napoleon's forces on the Continent until his identity was revealed. Having assured one of his dying soldiers he would see to a monthly income for the man's widow and children, Alistair returns to England intending to keep the promise. But when his father refuses to honor the obligation, Alistair is forced to sell his commission to raise the funds. Angered that Alistair would do such a thing, the earl disowns his son.
Needing a position and a place to live, Alistair uses his expert horsemanship skills to gain a position as a groom at Harrington House.
When Lady Julia tells him of her plans to make him into a gentleman for her mother's ball, Alistair agrees to the scheme. After all, how hard can it be when he's already a gentleman? Alistair is about to find out in My Fair Groom.
