Review: The Governess Game - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

He’s been a bad, bad rake—and it takes a governess to teach him a lesson

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: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. 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 give her an education—in pleasure. That should 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.

The Governess Game
By Tessa Dare

Review: The Governess Game

A quirky, independent spinster falls for notorious rake when circumstances force her to become a governess, in Tessa Dare’s THE GOVERNESS GAME.

Not only does Dare hit gold with a sweeping romance between spirited Alexandra Mountbatten and roguish Chase Reynaud, but she does so with laugh-out-loud humor that make this a delightful page turner.

The daughter of a sea captain and a clock setter by profession, Alexandra Mountbatten finds herself in need of a job after her chronometer sinks to the bottom of the Thames. The fiasco leads her to the door of ducal heir Chase Reynaud, sodden and panicked, reluctantly accepting the role of governess to two precocious little girls.

This isn’t the first time she’s met Chase. It’s been months since their paths had crossed at a bookshop, and yet she’d not forgotten the green-eyed man of her dreams.

He’s a man whose sworn off any sort of commitment, especially marriage, instead he happily accepts cedes to the role of the infamous, unattainable rake. Secretly, however, he believes to be undeserving—a penance for his past transgressions.

Alex sweeps in with vigor and enthusiasm, healing the hearts of Chase, and of the two wild little girls who had yet to feel like they belong.

Heated and hilarious verbal sparring punctuate days filled with adventure, laughter and trysts that are supposed to mean nothing, but soon mean everything to them both.

But Chase makes a grave error and even with the best intentions, he may lose the love of his life, and the person who has finally made his house, a home.

This second, effervescent installment in the Girl Meets Duke series sizzles with infectious humor, irresistible banter and poignant moments between delightfully charming and eccentric characters. Tessa Dare is a skilled storyteller, deftly penning a quickly moving, lively narrative you won’t soon forget. From first page to the last, I don’t think the smile ever faded from my face.
