OUT NOW! Good Housekeeping by Dove Spalding
Arden Francis is a fifth-generation butler who has lived his entire life under the expectation that he will one day manage his own household staff. When he gets the opportunity to step out from his father’s shadow, he believes there is nothing he can’t manage.
Arden tends to cause conflict with his abrasive personality and short temper, but his billionaire boss, Jaime Montgomery, is quite the opposite. While Jaime is amiable and warm on the outside, Arden discovers with time he is just as inwardly turbulent as anyone else.
When Jaime takes a predilection for Arden that solicits activities far beyond the onus of a butler, Arden must choose between fighting for the career he’s been training for or the attention of the man who needs him. Arden struggles to find balance between professionalism and complete abandonment of everything he learned over two and a half decades of training.
His typically frigid exterior is threatened by the overwhelming warmth of his boss, and he finds himself at the point of no return, buckling under the weight of feelings he’s never had before.
