Read full review in the 2019 October issue of InD'tale Magazine.
H comes across as a complete rake but he is a nice guy at heart ...
h is a governess; a superior kind of governess ... I liked that this h was firm in her ways and strict with the H too ... she was also very practical and kind ...
A wonderful new series from Chasity that will leave you with a sigh as you turn the last page,
Just as all romances should.
Filled will tension, angst, wonderfully emotional scenes between a governess and a Lord, a beautiful little girl with her own battles , and villains that will have you dreading their next plot, this is a really great read .
I thoroughly enjoyed the book it had everything I could want in a regency romance , and it looks as though their is so much more to look forward to from ...more
to give this book a go. I'm glad I did.
Douglas, a lord, interviewed Willa to become governess
to his 3 yr old niece, Marina, speechless w/ grief over
her Mom, Alice, who died in a hovel. Mom & dtr had
been low on food + coal for heat. Doug had been away
in the army. He had no idea Alice lived this way. Or
that he had a niece.
Doug was smart, sexy, had sardonic wit, but covered his
loneliness & boredom w/ drinking etc. ...more
Wilhelmina Marks has had an unfortunate past but a very good education. She will hopefully put that to use as a governess. The troubled child needs much more than any ordinary governess could give her.
The past has coloured the lives of all the characters in this story. Although it makes ...more
Douglas Ashton, Lord Deveril is known as the Devil. A rake whose life is filled with debauchery until he has to take care of his late sister’s young daughter. Wilhelmina Marks is the illegitimate daughter to a second son and works for the Darrow school he hires as governess to the child.
It is filled with childhood hurt, death, murder, kidnapping, schemes, betrayal, redemption, steamy chemistry, and love—sigh! Great Read!
**Welcome to Book One in "The Hellion Club", the nickname for the Darrow School, where miscreant noblemen send their illegitimate daughters to keep them out of sight, out of mind, and to make them employable.

Wilhelmena Marks is a bastard daughter of a lord who dropped her and her sister off at an orphanage rather than deal with them when she was a child. Luckily both girls were found by a woman who had a school for girls in similar straits, and were given support and educations, along with a place to call home. She is called upon to help a man with his very young niece, who has just lost her mother, adjust to her new life as his ward.

I got the book in large part because there were several other books named and listed as part of the series in the Amazon blurb about it. Wrong. This is the only book of the series which has been published and, after searching, could find absolutely nothing about when any of the others are coming. The storyline was fine. Pretty somber and without humor, but fine. I know things always get repetitive in these things (inner anxieties of H and h), but ...more
Wilhelmina or Willa was a bastard daughter and student at Darrow school. Called upon to be a governess to a niece of a depraved Rogue who reportedly slept with half of London! A nasty aunt and a little girl who has seen so much evil she doesn't talk, will there ever be peace in this home? When a madman is underestimated and a villainous plot goes even more awry can there be a HEA?
Not only does Douglas find it difficult to escape the roguish reputation society has pegged him with, but he also falsely feels responsible for the unfortunate events that befall those closest to him.
In this suspenseful story he finds he cannot resist his hearts pull toward, Willa, governess to his niece, an illegitimate child and level-headed lady at heart.
Can his love pierce the walls around her heart?
I enjoyed reading this book. It is about a little girl Marina, her uncle Douglas Ashton, Lord Deveril and Wilhelmina Marks. There are more people but these three are the main ones. It has the bad characters that will eventually pay the price. This is a story that I would recommend!
This another good book by Chasity. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book in this series. Devil and Willa did not have loving parents. Both grew to be honorable people. Devil is determined to protect his niece from her no good father.. He hires Willa to be her governess and sparks fly between them.
A fine start to a new series. Willa and Devil meet head on as both are stubborn yet determined to bring some peace to his 3-year-old motherless niece with the help of the frankly honest governess. Lots going on with a few nasty characters but the HEA is worth it. Be aware it is a bit steamy.
The interactions between Wilhelmina and Lord Devil are the strong engine of this novel. Both characters are society outcasts, yet both possess more nobility of spirit than half the ton. But the villain, Alaric, is an equally compelling character and the author gives us a revealing tour of his selfish, ruthless mind. And the story is more than a simple romance. It's seasoned with danger, uncertainty and deep passion.
Hooked right off the bat with interesting characters, plots and subplots.... Dying for the next book. I have questions that need answers. I am hooked!!! Love this author with only a dislike for the paranormal series. Otherwise, pure anticipation....
