Simply Perfect Paperback
by Mary Balogh
Part of the Simply Series series
Tall, dark, and exquisitely sensual, Joseph Fawcitt is the epitome of male perfection.
Not that Claudia Martin is looking for a lover. Or a husband. As headmistress of Miss Martin's School for Girls, she long ago resigned herself to a life of spinsterhood - until now. Irresistibly attracted to Claudia, Joseph embarks on an outrageous plan of seduction.
But as heir to a prestigious dukedom, the Marquess of Attingsborough is expected to carry on his family's legacy, not dishonour it.
Yet Joseph is determined to make Claudia his at any cost.
Even if that means breaking every rule for a love that is simply perfect...

Review by wyvernfriend
Entertaining romance with a headmistress coming to terms with her past with the help of a Marquess, and both of them discovering what really matters to them.Though from watching an episode of "Who do you Think you are", I know that blindness was often a symptom of congenital syphilis which kinda spoilt my wanting the couple to get together, they were good emotionally but I didn't want her to suffer for his dalliances, damn you educational TV.However the couple were good, I liked them, I liked the relationship, I liked how they had to come to terms with their past and deal with some of their issues before becoming a full couple, the attraction was there from the start but they both had to acknowledge it and deal with other people and their relationship with them. I could see the reality of the period being echoed, but I let it slide for the most part. I enjoyed it overall and liked the main characters for the most part.
