With the Headmaster's Approval by Jan Hurst-Nicholson

The controversial appointment of a handsome widower and former US naval officer as head teacher of an English all girls’ school ignites sexual tension, rebellion, and the unearthing of dark secrets, and changes their lives in ways none of them could imagine.
Adam Wild arrives at St Mary's Academy for Girls intent on restoring discipline to the once prestigious school. Not everyone is pleased. Jenna Murray believes the headship should have been hers and undermines his authority at every turn. They fight a growing sexual attraction - until a troubled girl makes a shocking allegation.
Then Nicole, his late wife’s kid sister returns from Africa with a life-threatening condition and a startling request he’s unsure he can fulfil, forcing Adam to re-evaluate his feelings about love.
Lust shouts. Love whispers. Only the heart knows the difference.
