THE CONUNDRUM OF A CLERK By : Linda Rae Sande

The Plot :
When the headmistress of London ‟ s premiere finishing school dies , her son , Theodore Streater , is desperate to find a replacement . He ‟ s a bank clerk and has no idea how to run a girl ‟ s school . So , when Daisy Albright appears to apply for the position , he hires her on the spot — even though he would rather hire her as his mistress . Left with only one arm from the last war , Teddy would prefer to take a wife , but who will marry a one-armed man ? A former spy , Daisy has a secret she ‟ d rather her employer not know , especially as she grows more fond of him . When she discovers what Mrs . Streator had already arranged on behalf of the school , though , her future employment and the fate of the school will be at risk .
An Excerpt “ Lady Bostwick believes I could be headmistress of Warwick ‟ s .”
James set down his coffee cup , the fine china clattering a bit as his brows furrowed . He had wondered why the Bostwicks had paid the call the day before . He had intended to ask , but the delight in her eyes at meeting her younger brother had him thinking instead of how happy he was the two had finally met .
And then , when Helen had given up her hold on Rose so that Daisy could hold the babe , he had fought back tears . The expression of joy on his eldest daughter ‟ s face as Rose opened her eyes and smiled would stay in his memory for the rest of his days . Surely some sense of maternal longing would settle in her breast . Some desire to marry and have one of her own .
He need only find a man worthy of her . He rather doubted she would manage it on her own .
