The Governess Game: Book review 

Book blurb

The accidental governess…After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart . . . without risking her own.
The infamous rake…
Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling . . . and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

My review

This is my first Tessa Dare novel but not my last. I loved the start. Alexandra falling in love with a stranger following a chance meeting in a bookshop, a stranger who turns out to be a scoundrel on all levels. A year later, following an unfortunate accident Alexandra finds herself governess to his unruly wards. Both Chase and his wards need work and who better to instil some discipline?

 Beautifully crafted, I raced through this in a couple of sittings. If there is one criticism there were a couple too many bedroom scenes than I’m used to but that’s all a matter of personal choice. 


Hello and Welcome, hope you enjoy Jenny
