    Caro Swanson has taken a job in a remote part of Scotland. She’s answered an ad in The Lady: being a companion to an elderly gentleman who lives in a country estate could be perfect!

Soon Caro is falling in love - not only with Alec but with the stunning house and grounds she is now living in.
