I've always had a special place and weakness for stories that revolved around Governesses (I shall place the blame on Jane Eyre)"His Unusual Governess was not as unusual as it was predictable with the hidden heiress, someone after her, and a rake with a past he can't seem to get around until he meets our heroine.
Sarah Hardcastle was the type of heroine who I love to read about, she comes from trade and works in it even when she meets one road block after another. Tried of the attention of on

Soooooooo boring! The story was horribly slow, with no actual plot line.... Ok most romantic novels don't have a sensible plot, however this was just a bunch of rambling that happened, by luck, to get published. I was not wrapped into the story, the leading lady and man were not developed. Their growing attachment was never shown to the reader at all. And everything done in the story was contrary to what the author had previously done with the characters. For example, the children we're suppose ...more

I always enjoy Anne Herries' books, and this one was no exception! I don't want to give the plot away, but here's a small synopsis. Set during the Regency, heiress Sarah Hardcastle is desperate to escape from an unwelcome suitor. She therefore assumes a new identity - that of governess Hester Goodrum - and takes a position as governess to two teenagers in the depths of the countryside. However, her pupils' mentor, Lord Rupert Myers, shakes her composure and threatens her masquerade...

I felt slightly guilty clicking on the 'I'm finished' button. Am I finished with this book? Yes. Did I finish it? No. Truth be told, somewhere around page 230 I realized 3 things. 1: I hadn't fallen in love with the hero. 2: I wasn't rooting for the heroine. 3: I didn't give a damn whether or not they ended up together. Also, there was no unexpected humour that made me chortle out loud, , no scintillating dialogue, no descriptions so beautiful that my breath caught in my throat as I read them. T ...more

The plot is similar, the ending is familiar but I still love it! It holds out well to the end and is not over cheesy. Ok I've read plot much like this from mills and boons with the same typical ending but it was the familiarity that I enjoyed. If you want something light and easy to read from mills and boons you can't go a miss.

A very unusual but delightful take on a governess romance! This book was very fresh and enjoyable, the characters were well developed, and it was just a fantastic read from start to finish.

Boring. Too many pages where the story did not progress. Also there wasn't much of the couple actually falling in love.
