I had just finished a paranormal romance and was looking for something more lite to read. I perused my Kindle and came upon one of my favorite authors, Christina Dodd, and found a book that I had not yet read, My Fair Temptress Book 7 in the governess bride series. WOW, what a great story, it is most definitely a must read.

This Dodd book could've been better. This wasn't as tightly-written as other Dodd books like Just The Way You Are, Close to You, and My Favorite Bride. The action-mystery interfered with Hero & heroine's sexual chemistry. Romance became more ...more
La storia è abbastanza insipida, con l’onnipresente Throckmorton e i suoi giochi di spie (stavolta almeno ci vengono risparmiati i russi, perché i nemici vengono dalla Moricandia..), e anche le scene hot sono assolutamente dimenticabili.
