This story is so much fun! Temperance O'Neil is fiesty, energetic and driven activist who is skillfully trapped into finding a wife for James McCairn. The catch is that she must pose as a housekeeper at his home - and he doesn't want a wife at all.

Temperance and McCairn bring out the best and worst in each other as they learn to work past their own arrogance and self-importance and be better people. They just also happen to fall in love in the process.

Temperance is a unique character. An activist for women and children, she's something of a celebrity amongst those whom she champions. This is the kind of righteous, self-important attitude Temperance must battle against as she works as a housekeeper for McCairn.

McCairn is a man, and that is the problem he must deal with.

It is truly entertaining to read how these two strong-headed people battle it out at McCairn's home in an attempt to conquer the other through sheer force of will.
