Love comes easily to some. Others have to fight for it… Purity Mayfield doesn’t entertain romantic notions. She knows marriage isn’t a possibility and has accepted her lot in life is that of a governess. She’s good at her job, too. So, when she sees a little girl being mistreated by her so-called caretaker, Purity doesn’t hesitate to step in and help. Unfortunately, the girl’s cynical and entirely too attractive father is neither grateful nor impressed by her intervention… Theran Rutland had—and lost—one great love. He has no intention of seeking another. So, romance is the last thing on his mind when the beautiful Purity accuses his sister-in-law of abusing his daughter. But when her allegations prove true, Theran offers Purity a governess position. Imagine his surprise when he starts to develop actual feelings for her… When all is said and done, Purity and Theran might have a shot at happily ever after. But only if a jealous, vengeful rival and a shocking revelation about Purity’s past don’t ruin everything first… ~ * ~ Secrets, scandals, and sigh-worthy romance.

He fires his sister-in-law who has been his daughter’s governess and after some coaxing from his aunt and uncle, he hires Purity as his new governess. He knows it’s a huge mistake because he’s attracted to her. Purity is far too charming, not to mention outspoken and religious, but there’s something about her that draws him in. He hasn’t felt this way in so long, he wonders if it can be love or just a fleeting attraction. When an old rival tries to discredit Purity, he realizes the truth and all he sees is lovely, beautiful Purity. Can they make a match, or will long-buried secrets tear them apart?
His One and Only Lady is an emotional Regency romance that will have you delving into the past as you root for this couple. I’ve been a huge fan of Collette Cameron for almost a decade. She’s written a masterpiece here and it truly should be read by anyone who reads historical romance. First, the characters are brilliantly portrayed, and they leap off the page. From their clothing, language, manners, and social circles, everything is historically accurate. Collette Cameron takes her research seriously and as a reader, I revel in the world she’s created. The romance between Purity and Theran is slow, sweet, and wholesome. Collette Cameron takes care to present their relationship for what it is: a scandalous affair between a gentleman and a servant. The fun lies in these two bucking the rules and falling in love. I also enjoyed the secondary characters as they added humor, tenderness, and drama to the story. The letters at the beginning of each chapter are a clever way of filling in gaps in the story. If you’re looking for a heartfelt historical romance, pick up His One and Only Lady. Another masterfully written romance from Collette Cameron. Fans of Bridgerton will adore His One and Only Lady. Highly recommend!
