Bought and read this book all in one day. I enjoyed the premise and the characters. I would recommend this book to regency romance lovers.

This is a perfect, or very nearly perfect romance! The reviewer that wrote "unfinished" was WRONG. A good book leaves room for imangination, and adding hoochy scenes to 'finish' the story would only cheapen it.

I personally didn't like the writing style. Also wondering what happened to the previous Governess's. Left a lot to be desired.

The basic story is good and predictable. The ending leaves you hanging as to what happened to the previous two governess's - which wouldn't be important except they mention finding clues to what happened. It's a nice read, but could be so much more.

It was alright. It took me a while to get into it and once the book grabbed me I was still wanting for something different, something more. Not a bad book but not a really good book either. I wish i would jave spent my time reading something else.

Perfect for summer reading. Pour yourself a nice glass of chardonay and curl up with this charming Regency romance. Hope this author has more in store for her readers. I hated to see the book end- Felt like I was leaving old freinds.
