I started this a while back while in a doctor's office. Finally had the opportunity to finish it while riding in a car The day before Thanksgiving.
The heroine was actually the companion/lady's maid of an aristocrat. The aristocrat died on a voyage due to illness but before she did, she convinced the h to take her place as her father was dead and the only one who could prove she wasn't the girl was an aunt who likely wouldn't come across the ocean. Got that?
The h, having grown up in the household, was well aware of social standings in Merry Olde England so the thoughts of the overseer or whatever the H was making advances on what he assumed was his boss's daughter didn't set well with her.
:sigh... I could almost like the h, but I had a tough time with the H. Not only did he seem to just ignore all possibility that the h might find him reaching above himself, but he was pushy. And, when he found out her real identity, he was exceedingly obnoxious.
He took advantage of every facet of the situation. Considering the h's early objections, I'm bemused that she didn't become violent towards him.
At least it was short.
