    A Regency romance with a difference

    As Regency romance novels go, this book was a departure from the norm, however I found it difficult to relate to, especially compared to other books that I have read by this author. The language and flow of writing in this novel are good and the story is easy to read but the plot itself was somewhat awkward. The main characters had a strange relationship and although I enjoyed Payton's relationship with both the children and Damon, the Baron was not a person to draw one or make a woman feel safe, despite his concern for Payton. There was a certain amount of suspense and tension in this story, all of Payton's own doing. Although this book is part of a series and characters from previous books appear in this one too, it is nevertheless a standalone and can be read as such. The epilogue was enjoyable and finished the novel off well and being clean, it can be read by most age groups. I received a copy of this book for free as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Loved the Changes the Children and Damon Have!

    I really liked the story of Payton with the children. Becoming the parent to them that they needed when their father emotionally abandoned them after his wife died. I loved how both he and the children changed during the book. I understand her reasons for gambling yet it almost seemed a slight addiction at times. The only thing I didn't like and drove me nuts reading the book was the constant "in your face" referencing Damon's late wife Sarah and how he loved her and felt responsible for her death. I felt that should have been mentioned less and we still would have known his feelings. I did like the references to the rest of Paytons family and their updates, I just hope at some point we get Garrett's happy ending! Thank you for the ARC, I was glad I got to read this so quickly!

    Loved It

    Payton Samuels has her life plan. Move out from under the constant loving control of her siblings, and start an independent life. For that she needs work, so she takes a job as a governess. The family she works for have a big problem that maybe she can help with. Her gambling will hopefully help with the funds she will need when it's time to move on. Damon Kinder, Lord Ashford is still suffering from the death of his wife four years earlier. He shuts himself away from everyone, even his children. The only time he mixes with society is at the card playing evenings he runs at his house. Even then he hides behind a mask. A very emotional romance between lonely people. Wonderful characters that you will instantly fall in love with. This book is part of a series of stand alone stories. All of the ones I have read are just as good as this one. I have loved them all and can't wait to read the rest of the series.

    A Heartfelt Story

    An engaging story of hope when all seems lost, Christina McKnight delivers a heartfelt tale. Payton Samuels has been disappointed in life. She lost her mother at a young age and her siblings go their own way. Becoming a governess for Damon, Baron Ashford's two children, she is determined to attend some of his gaming parties and make her fortune. As plans go, it definitely did not work out! Losing terribly she is surprised that Damon bails her out. But she also falls in love with her charges and tries to draw them closer to their father. Feeling a broken man after the death of his wife, Damon has tried to keep his feelings tightly bound due to not wanting to care too much and lose again. As attraction slowly builds between the two, can there be a future for them? Can each let go of their old emotions and learn to trust and open their hearts? Another great addition to the Craven House series that can be read as a standalone. But don't miss the other books in this series because they are just as amazing as this one.
