Domestically Tamed  
May 23, 2014
Author:  Sarah Vicks
Category:  Digital: Fiction: Women's/Romance
Description:  An impromptu parent… The Honorable Miles Tame is not pleased his sister Jocelyn dumped his almost fifteen-year-old niece onto his doorstep. He has absolutely no idea what to do with a young lady—or any sort of young person for that matter. When he arrives at the school to re-trieve Emily, he literally runs into the efficient and highly kissable Miss Pennyroyal.

A surprise invitation… Miss Phoebe Pennyroyal is the headmistress of an academy for young ladies in Brighton. She's a widow with a sixteen-year-old son, looking forward to summer holi-days so she can read the pile of scandalous novels confiscated from her students. But a last mi-nute plea to play companion to Emily as well as attend a house party to celebrate the girl's birth-day sends her into a tither.

An unexpected romance… What follows next is one week filled with bouts of rain, bored young people and madcap scrapes only adolescents could enjoy—except it's their adult chaperones who tumble into a few slightly improper meetings which make both Miles and Phoebe think perhaps they aren't too old for love after all.
