Read full description of the books:
Lord and governess traditional regency for grownups. I’m not necessary a fan of this trope but I really liked the story, liked enough to re-read it.
As a governess, Miss Maeve Midden had no use for dreams. Her wishes for family and children of her own were destroyed long ago by an unscrupulous suitor. Hoping to find a position with younger girls which would mean a longer stay in one place, she isn’t too thrilled when Lord Rothe hired her to be a governess to his 16 year old niece Clarissa. A stubborn hoydenish Clarissa made it in no uncertain terms she doesn’t want a governess. Clarissa’s mother spends her days in bed even though the doctors can’t find anything wrong with her. Lord Rothe, who spent 18 years in the military and only recently inherited the title, has hard time adjusting to civilian life and it seems to be constantly in battles with his niece. Talk about a mad house! When Lord Rothe persuaded Maeve to stay at least until her replacement can be found, she decided to use the time to help uncle and niece to better understand each other.
This was a well written character-driven story. Both protagonists suffered disappointments and tragedies in their lives and the author did a nice job showing their graduate transformation, their growing love, affection and trust. I like that the characters were older, mature and honorable. The plot may not be action filled but moved along nicely. The only criticism I have is the ending felt too rushed.
