Recently orphaned, Rebecca is placed in the cheapest boarding school her uncle could find. While glad to take possession of her inheritance, he wants nothing to do with her. Upon his death, she discovers that she has no options other than the one offered by the headmaster. Quickly stripped of her station, she becomes just another servant below stairs. Life is hard but she is determined to make the most of a difficult situation.
Rebecca spends her days toiling for others and doing all that she can to avoid the notice of Miss Lambert, the headmistress who has just been waiting for the chance to take the girl down a peg or two. No one expected anyone to come to Rebecca's rescue, least of all, Rebecca herself. On the day of her eighteen birthday, she is called into the headmaster's office where her life undergoes yet another major upheaval.
Eager to escape the school, Rebecca finds herself agreeing to wed a man she has no memory of ever seeing before and yet something about him has her heart beating faster and her hopes lifting. As soon as the ink on the parchment is dry, her new husband informs her that her schooling has not yet ended and that he will be the one to further her lessons...lessons far more intimate than those found in her former classroom. Patrick becomes not only her husband, but her Papa, and quickly teaches her that all naughtiness has consequences. As she becomes his student, she discovers he holds more than the key to her heart as he unlocks hidden desires that she never imagined.
