Description

Mills & Boon presents The Governess Game by Tessa Dare.

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.

Excellent narration enhances wonderful story.

The Governess Game is the second book in the Girl Meets Duke series, and we see quite a bit of the original cast from Book 1. This is Alexandra's story. She sets the time on the clocks of the wealthy, and stargazes in her spare time, hoping to find a new comet. Chase is her mysterious Book Store Rake and a potential client for her time-keeping business. He is also the reluctant guardian of a couple of little girls who would have been comfortable in the Addams Family.
The cast of characters have the enchanting quirks that I've grown to depend on in a Tessa Dare novel. From the doll with an unfortunate tendency to die from horrendous diseases,( and hilarious eulogies to match), to inventive sandwich recipes, there is a lot of background entertainment in this story that makes it a memorable experience. The love story is satisfying and hits no jarring notes, such as drawn out confessions or misunderstandings. Both Alexandra and Chase have their own charm and are thoroughly likeable. They just fit.
The narration is sublime. Mary Jane Wells just makes everything better, when it was already really, really good.
I hate having to wait for the 3rd book.
