Temptation of a Proper Governess (Cameron Sisters #1)
Society dictates that a governess should be modest, quiet, and keep to herself.
She should never contradict her employer.
And, above all, she must not attract the attention of any male in the household.
But Michael Severson doesn't see Isabel Halloran as a governess—he sees her as a woman, one whose lush curves cannot be hidden behind a dowdy gown ... and whose efforts at hid...more
So, this is the story of Isabel Halloran. When we meet her, she is the governess of a 17 year old who appears to be the nastiest, loosest 17 year old I've ever read about!! Isabel interrupts this 17 ye...more
The plot was so bland that I'm not sure if I can remember it well enough to write a clear review. But I will do my best. This is spoilery, but the st...more

I have read many books that take place in this time period and by comparison found a lot of historical inaccuracies , but they didn't really affect the story. I just found them irritating. It was a fine, frivolous read, as romances go, but not a keepe...more
Except for maybe this one. I wasn't that caught up in the story until the later part of the book where the mystery of identifying the killer really picks up. It is still a great read, but not as great as Ms. Maxwell's other books.
The story was a bit bland and I didn't feel any type of build up or passion between the two characters. Even the sexy time was not up to Maxwell's standards.
It was still a fun little read.
Isabel is a brave character, not afraid to speak her mind in a very masculine society.
And Michael is willing to look past the fact that Isabel's a governess and marry her because of her beauty.
You get romance (duh), a mystery killer, and family secrets.
I enjoyed the story and the book read fast.
I guess it just a nice Harliquin book. Easy to read, easy to just go along with the story and root for the main characters.
Such a great story for Isobel and Michael! I loved how they ended up getting married and then their love story!
I am currently on a Regency kick and this one was terrific!!
She lives in beautiful Virginia with her children, horses, dogs, and cats.
