Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"To survive her difficult childhood, Miss Hazel Lively relied on two things: a tough exterior and a love of books. Now, she's realized her life-long dream of opening a school for girls. She's hoping the wealthy families who summer at the shore will entrust their daughters to Bellehaven Academy--and help pay for less fortunate students. All Hazel must do is maintain a flawless reputation. It's a foolproof plan ... until a handsome earl strides into her office. Gabriel Beckett, Earl of Bladenton, has had a monstrous headache since the day his teenaged niece became his ward. She's already been expelled from two London schools, but Blade is determined to enroll her at Bellehaven Academy, where she'll be out of his hair. If only he can convince the buttoned-up--and unexpectedly intriguing--headmistress to take a risk. Blade makes an offer that's impossible for Hazel to refuse, but she has one condition: the earl must visit his niece every other week. Soon, Blade discovers there's more to Hazel than meticulous lessons."--Page 4 of cover

    Orphaned as a child, Hazel Lively was saved by books and her love of learning. She has finally begun to live her dream in a seaside town by opening a school for girls. She just needs enough well-paying young ladies to register to enable her to educate other deserving girls. After refusing to accept trouble-making Kitty, the orphaned teen niece of Blade, the earl of Bladenton, Hazel risks her life to save Kitty from drowning. Blade then accepts Hazel's condition that he visit his niece at least once every fortnight, even though he is in the middle of a busy London social season in which he is practically engaged to Lady Penelope. She would be his perfect countess; having once loved and lost, he wants a bride he does not and will not love. Thrown together during the biweekly visits, the strong-willed headmistress and the earl who wants nothing to do with love experience a searing attraction. This enjoyable tale of two people living full lives and finding unexpected love is a great kick-off for Bennett's new Rogues to Lovers series. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
