Review: Governess Gone Rogue

Governess Gone Rogue (Dear Lady Truelove, #3)






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.

Governess Gone Rogue by Laura Lee Guhrke is an enchanting tale. The story reflected issues that were brought up during that time period. Women were not seen as equals. They have not had the right to vote yet. And yet men kept them away from things like education and politics. While others took to extremes and decided to abuse their power over innocent women like the governess, here. Accurate, engaging, and full of humor…this journey is a must read.

Laura Lee Guhrke lured me into her world of fiction for the first time. I was amazed. I both laughed and cried so hard. Her characters were super easy to like, The antagonist was easy to hate. His whole demeanor made me hate him instantly. The behavior of his kind were common and believable.

I cheered the moment the hero believed the governess. He didn’t doubt her for a second. Their instant chemistry had me hoping for a bright future ahead. The twin boys in this tale were troublesome and funny as ever. I loved their tricks. But the governess still beat them, despite being a woman. They all connected well. The father of the twin boys lost his wife. The only woman who reformed his wicked ways. Only now, a luring most curious person in his care, begins to undo all of that. The governess is a siren to him. As more time flies by, both fall harder for each other including the boys. They finally begin to love their teacher in more ways than one. Overall, I highly recommend this charming historical romance to all.
