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.

Lovely book

Like all things Tessa Dare, this book is charming, well-written, a pleasure to read. The children are undoubtedly the stars of the novel; they add both levity and gravity to the story. Alexandra Mountbatten is a compelling heroine, intelligent, resourceful, secretly hopelessly romantic. Her immediate infatuation with the hero works well with her character as a bit of emotional escapism from the precariousness of her situation, however that tension between her romantic tendencies and the reality of life as a woman supporting herself with plans and dreams is underutilized. Alex is kind of lost in this story and we are left with Chase as the emotional center of the story; Alex spends much of the novel convincing him, a wealthy soon-to-be titled man, of his worth. Chase is a fine hero, but his internal struggles and self flagellation are imo less compelling than Alexandra’s more complicated and potentially nuanced position as a woman with dreams, sensitive yet sensible, but of precarious means. I enjoyed the novel from start to finish but was a bit unsatisfied, though it is hard to pinpoint why exactly. I think it is that the story feels much smaller than the characters, particularly the heroine, deserved.

Catch a Falling Comet

… put it in your pocket, never let it get away. That pretty much sums up the plot, but interesting characters and a rocky path towards self acceptance makes the journey worthwhile.

So fun

This was such a fun and emotional book. Yo will laugh out loud and need tissues. I highly recommend this series.
