The Baron's Malady by Rose Pearson
This is romantic, dramatic and intense. Gideon is charming, kind, caring and generous. Josephine is strong, brave, caring and determined. After her parents succumbed to scarlett fever, Josephine made her way to London to find work, and ended up helping to care for the many afflicted by the fever instead. From there she ended up at the estate of the Baron Dunstable helping to care for his mother, sister then him when they had the fever. While there, her and Gideon become close, despite their differences in station. And the fact that he is to wed a viscount's daughter. It's very easy to like all of the characters, there is no bad guy in this story, just inconvenient circumstances.
