Seducing the Governess sounded like a different twist on a familiar plot in an overdone Regency market. Unfortunately, I found it was just the same as all the others, however, that said it was still an enjoyable read. It reminded me of a more tame version of Jane Eyre, as in not as dark, but still seductive.
The first chapter dragged with backstory as the author setup Mercy’s background. I did like her scarred hero Nash; I do always have a soft spot for war heroes.
Although the book was quite predictable all-and-all I did enjoy Seducing the Governess and would recommend it to any fans of the Regency subgenre of historical romance.
From talented author Margo Maguire comes the first in a lush, new "Regency series" about the lost heiresses of a powerful duke, as they find breathtaking passion, love, and fortune.
A proper governess should never...
Assist a handsome stranger, along on an unfamiliar road...unless the rake happens to be her new employer.
Take a position in a crumbling manor...especially if the household staff has been replaced by unruly former soldiers.
Allow her young charge entree to her heart...for once done, it will be impossible to maintain proper distance.
Permit her charge's uncle a breathtaking kiss under a star-lit sky...henceforth she will most certainly lose composure whenever he is near.
And above all, she should never, ever fall completely, irreversibly in love with her employer...for nothing good can possibly come of it.
