Description

Dear Lady Truelove...

My twin brother and I need a new mother, though Papa insists he’ll never marry again. Must be nice, brainy, and fond of cats....

Lady Truelove may be London’s most famous advice columnist, but James St. Clair, the earl of Kenyon, knows his wild young sons need a tutor, not a new mother. They need a man tough enough to make his hellions tow the line, and James is determined to find one.

Miss Amanda Leighton, former schoolteacher and governess, knows she has all the qualifications to be a tutor. And while female tutors are unheard of, Amanda isn’t about to lose the chance at her dream job because of pesky details like that. If Lord Kenyon insists on hiring a man, then she has only one option....

Jamie isn’t sure what to make of his new employee until he realizes the shocking truth - beneath the ill-fitting suits, his boys’ tutor is a woman. An unconventional, outspoken, thoroughly intriguing woman. Despite Amanda’s deception, he can’t dismiss her when his boys are learning so much. Yet Jamie, too, is learning surprising lessons - about desire, seduction, and passionate second chances....

Story was pretty good with likeable characters

While the story was entertaining and the characters well developed, the narrator was just not right. J.E. was not able to give the characters the depth they could have had. I found the book heavy going and probably won't listen to again.

Pretty Fun Book

This was a fun book, I really enjoyed the kids antics more than anything. They were very clever in their misdeeds LOL.

I really liked Amanda. She was smart, pretty (even as a boy) and very clever herself. I liked Jamie too. There was some good chemistry between the two. There was some dialogue but there could have been more between the two.

The story line was good, even though there was a bit too much filler moments.

As for the narration, it was okay, I wish Carolyn Morris would have narrated this book as well as the second. She is more enjoyable to listen to than Justine Eyre.

You know what your getting with Justine Eyre. All the men sound the same, at least they sound like men so that is good, of course.

Strong and sassy

I really liked this story but I'm skeptical about the female feature described was able to pass for a young man. It was empowering to see how knowledge of the women and will power. I love this series and like how it's coming together.

enjoyable

I haven't read the two preceeding books in this series but probably will now. I thought there was more repartee than one of the previous reviewers.

Needed more relationship development

Needed more relationship development
Too much filler...not enough time spent developing the relationship between the characters. All the books in the series are basically the same exact outline...just slightly different characters and slightly different circumstances.

That being said...they are a mindless easy listen and pleasant..just not one you will remember for all time.

I gave each book the same review... because as I said earlier they are all so similar and have the same issues.

Each book would have been much better if the relationship was the focal point of story development. Seems each book had the H & H spending 70% of their time with other characters doing other things. It just felt like the relationships were forced to work....not allowed to grow naturally.

The narrator is ok

The book is really good , but the narrator is not . She uses the same voice for the hero and the children. This book would have been a lot more entertaining if , Rosalyn Landor, or Helen Taylor did the narrator.
