From the Back Cover
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.

Bringing them all together is a ducal heir who hates himself for inheriting over his dead cousin. He hires Alexandra as a governess for his two wards. Then fun, desire and chaos follow. I loved this slightly less than the wonderful “Duchess Deal”, the first in this series. But it’s still a great read with laughs galore and a few tears as well. Highly recommended.
Alexandra Mountbatten is singularly unique for her time. Strong minded, exotic and quick as a wip...
Chase Reynaud is a libertine, a rake and unapologetic. He is also guardian to two girls who have chased off many a governess.
Some of the best moments in this book are between Alex and the girls. Her kind, compassionate nature is a driving force in her relationship with the orphans that are both funny.
I cheered for everyone of these characters. Congrats Ms. Dare again...
