Allegra's parents have died. She spent the last few years working as a governess. She loves the girls she cares for. They are ready to come out and want Allegra happy, too. Especially they are waiting for the mysterious, adventurous Captain L'Amour to come back for her.

Allegra has made him up, adding bits and pieces to the story over the years. One day, while riding a carriage they almost run over a guy, who loves remarkably like the Captain she talked about so much. Girls are over the moon, however, Allegra is dumbstruck.

Mr John Sharp is a lawyer, who wanted to do something more, to be a chef. When his first attempt went up in flames, literally, he moved to a small town by the Sea.

When they mistake him for Captain L'Amour he plays along. However, it will be hard to maintain a fake relationship with all the chemistry brewing between them.

It's a lovely story, but for some reason, I just couldn't get into it.

happy reading,

Thank you, Netgalley for the ARC. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
