Mary Balogh

The Ungrateful Governess

Jessica Moore, demure governess to a spoiled young girl who is expecting a marriage proposal from the Earl of Rutherford, a guest in her father's home, is unwise enough to creep downstairs to the library one night when she cannot sleep, to choose a book to read. There she is discovered, first by the earl, and then by her employer. Though she is quite innocent of any wrongdoing, she is dismissed without notice and without a character. The earl, conscience-stricken, tries to make amends by offering her a position as his mistress, but when she refuses, he gives her a letter to take to his grandmother in London. In it he begs his grandmother to find employment for Miss Moore. Neither he nor Jessica expects that the offered employment will be as his wife.

    “Children, children! The proprieties, please!” The dowager duchess’s voice was booming enough to set the pair into jolting apart. Yet it was a brightly cheerful voice.

    course, you would readily do other things with me that would involve no condescension at all. They would merely be your rights as a gentleman. But conversing with me? In respectable company? So you try to discover if perhaps it is unexceptionable to do so, after all.

    Your assumption that my impoverished background makes me therefore a woman of loose and low morals says a great deal about your own morality.
