Orphaned and penniless, Portia Haverall is a comely young miss with few options. And an embarrassing encounter with oversized Lord Connor Dewhurst, Earl of Doncaster, further narrows her choices... to one. Forced by mishap and circumstances to accept a position as companion to the hulking earl's invalid mother, Portia moves into Connor's palatial estate - and becomes embroiled in a scheme to help the clumsy lord find a suitable bride.
A handsome giant who neither looks nor acts noble, Connor has for far too long ignored the fine art of courting - and implores Portia to school him in the social graces. But never does the reluctant tutor dream she will transform her pupil into the prize of the ton - or that she herself will ultimately fall amorous prey to his irresistible charms.
