Six Missives (At Home In Brighton) by Rachael Anderson

Miss Michelle Ellington despises the founder of a competing school for young ladies. Already, he has lured away two teachers and seems intent on wreaking havoc upon her school, all while the headmistress is away. She’s never met the man, but the few missives they’ve exchanged have told her exactly the sort of person he is—an underhanded cad.

Sir Miles Wentworth made a promise to his dying father and is driven to succeed. He'd be well on his way if he could just entice the reputable Miss Ellington to leave her current position and work for him. Unfortunately, her frigid reply makes it clear that his school would be the last place she’d ever seek employment.

When the pair encounter each other as strangers one evening, they form an instant connection. Smitten by the mysterious woman, Sir Miles sets out to romance her. What he soon discovers, however, is that the woman he is falling more in love with every day is the same woman who would like to make mincemeat of him.

Every time I read a book by author Rachael Anderson I am reminded why I love her writing so much.  Her books draw me in and wrap me up in a gentle, sweet way.  

This story has so much banter.  I love witty banter!!  Chelle and Miles are both intelligent and independent.  They have an instant attraction but Chelle is keeping some distance and secrecy around herself.  Miles is pursuing her.  It made for some fun interactions.

Miles is so determined to prove himself to Chelle so she won't hate him.  He messed up.  He really did.  And then he bumbles so many things but his consistency and his kindness, not just to Chelle, but to everyone, is hard to ignore.  I simply adored Miles.  He tried so hard.

Things I loved:

  • dances on the beach
  • bunnies
  • a bundle of pencils
  • the boy with a dog named Lucifer
  • the talk with Chelle's dad
  • the ending
This is the second book in this series but these books can easily stand alone.
