    Easy To Read

    My Lady Governess by author Elise Clarke is fast-paced Regency Romance you are sure to enjoy. Marina is a governess to the three young daughters of Lady Kemp. The two younger girls were well behaved, the older daughter Amelia is behaving shockingly while trying to attract the attentions of Thomas Beltring, Lord de Waare. Worse yet, her mother clearly approves of her behavior. Lady Kemp is determined to get Lord de Waare for her daughter even if she has to trap him. Finding out that he has a secret intolerance to gin, she slips it into his wine to ensure his utter intoxication and sets out to trap him into marriage to her daughter. The trap is set and sprung but de Waare isn’t fooled. As drunk as he is he realizes what is happening and refuses to offer for young Amelia. When Marina slaps him in an effort to sober him up, he is angry enough to throw her over his shoulder and storm out of the house with her. He intended to humiliate her by making her walk back in her nightgown. He quickly realizes she isn’t the governess he thought she was though. She is clearly a lady and so he must offer her marriage. This is just the beginning of a fast-paced adventure. Lord de Waare sets out to discover who she really is and Marina works to keep it from him. I really enjoyed how the author kept the action going and the interplay between the two. Easy To Read This book was fun and easy to read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking for more from Elise Clarke. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Just loved this story! Well written, loved the characters, the story line, the dialogue and no explicit language or sex! Just a great period romance - couldn't have asked for anything better. Another new author for me, so will be looking for more.......

    great read

    Lord de Waare has his holdings up North. He is extremely honorable and medival. Pretty much everyone is afraid of him. He walks around with a "stiff necked, stuck-up, cold fish he was". Miss Frome, "frizzy-haired, bespectacled frump sitting in the corner in the ugliest dress". She was the governess but she had her own opinions. The bantering between Miss Frome and Lord de Waare is so funny at times. They just love to yell at each other, although I think he does it more. As you can see the characters are wonderful and lively. The plot is somewhat complex but it certainly keeps your attention. You do not want to put this down. There is intrigue, danger and a lot of fear. She is so afraid of her uncle. Lord de Waare takes her North, you'll love how that comes about, and keeps her there since he has become her protector. I really loved this book the banter, the fighting, the mistakes he makes. All lead to a mesmerizing tale. I received this ARC free and voluntarily reviewed it.
