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.

Fantastic Read!!!!

An incredible romance that has a roguish hero who doesn’t believe he’s good enough for love or to love someone, because of an accident that wasn’t his fault which cost the life of his cousin. His one rule is always, always no attachments whatsoever! He’s broken, after all and not worthy! Until one tiny spitfire of a woman accidentally barged into his home ..... Alexandra Mountbatten!
Alexandra Mountbatten, Alex to her friends is a smart bookish young woman who loves astronomy almost as much as weaving fairytale fantasies over the “Bookstore Rake”
A miscalculation on her part leaves her with no job prospects but finds herself in the employ of the “Bookstore Rake” who now has a name Chase Reynaud a Duke’s heir.
Chase is in a bind he needs a governess for his two young wards and Alex is the perfect one for the job.
His two mischievous wards have chased away every single governess and he hopes that Alex is the ONE to put them in order!
I adored this new release from Tessa Dare especially the two little girls they had me laughing out loud with their antics. Alex and Chase had so much chemistry that it was palpable. Alex was not a simpering young girl with stars (haha pun intended) in her eyes she’s a sensible young woman who calculates everything. She’s endearing and caring and fell in love with both girls and feels their grief.
Chase needed a shove to wake up, and realize that he is worth being loved and to love, sometimes loving someone isn’t a guarantee that things will always go right but if he doesn’t try his future is a very lonely one.

I recommend this to everyone who loves Tessa Dare books!
