Overview

When the high-spirited Lady Jane Stanhope finds herself facing a marriage ordered by her father, she flees home, disguises herself as "Plain Jane" and lands a governess position to the ward of the reclusive Marquess of Saybrook.

Winning the love of the shy little ward is easy. Sparking arguments between herself and the mysterious Saybrook is delightful fun. But both are putting her heart in danger.

Now she's caught between desire and her deception, for the most a titled lord can offer to a mere governess is ruin.

    This is not BDSM

    So you will forgive me if i find it objectionable when the main character puts his female counterpart over his knee and spanks her. AND THEN SHE APOLOGIZES TO HIM.
    It is one thing to accept one's mistake and another to accept oneself of being deserving of such indignity.
    I cannot read further.
    Hence, I cannot recommend.

    Jane Eyre?

    Honestly, the author stole a bit from Jane Eyre. Mrs. Fairchild instead of Fairfax, the meeting of her employer (almost being run down by his horse)...and other bits. Short, but okay, considering the plagarism.

    Delightful

    My favorite part was jane getting a spanking that was so funny. I think this is a Jane Eyre sort of tale but with a twist. I read it in one sitting and I recommend it.

    Enjoyable

    Fun regency read. Interesting characters, strong female; mysterious, honorable male. A lovely distraction if regency romance is your thing.

    I found this book to be a good, clean read. I did not appreciate

    I found this book to be a good, clean read. I did not appreciate the male character spanking the female character, not a good recommendation for a man to put his hands on any woman. Other than that, it was a nice read.
