Since she was a little girl, Celeste has had one burning desire:to marry Ellery Throckmorton. But what chance does a gardener's daughter have of capturing the heart of one of England's wealthiest gentlemen? However, the education she receives at the Distinguished Academy of Governesses enables Celeste to return to Blythe Hall with a refinement that complements her ravishing beauty -- and makes her bold romantic dream more attainable. But, alas, temptation gets in the way... For wherever Celeste turns, it is not Ellery she encounters, but his serious, yet undeniably intriguing, older brother Garrick. The elder Throckmorton will have no one interfere with the younger's impending nuptials, and his meddling infuriates Celeste to no end. Still, she cannot disregard the fluttering of her heart whenever Garrick deigns to smile at her. And the passion she senses smoldering beneath his formidable control is tempting her in a manner a lady must never allow...

This book is the same plot as the movie "Sabrina", but set in Victorian England. If you saw the movie, which was made twice, you pretty much know the plot of this book. Her father is head gardner instead of a chaffeur, but she is sent to Paris for training. Movie and book have her madly in love with the handsome younger brother. She's been in love with him since she was a young girl. She returns to find him engaged and sets out to stop the engagement and marry him herself. The older brother steps in and seduces Sabrina/Celeste and they fall in love. Which came first - movie or novel? Since the origianal movie starred Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, I think it's the movie. Bogart and Hepburn were much better.

I really liked that the plainer, responsible brother got the girl instead of his handsome, charming younger brother.
