I am really sad to have to give a Tessa Dare book such a low review. She is autobuy for me.
So why only two stars you might ask? They are overdone, boring, morally bankrupt, and disrespectful of women. Promiscuity is NOT romantic. I just have a hard time believing that they will remain faithful. Chase was immature to the extreme. He only had one night stands with different women every night.
Chase did improve as the story went along, but I hate to think about just how many women in London he had pleasured before Alex. She will be forced to socialize with these same women who have all had her husband between their thighs. Sorry for being so blunt, but it must be said. Furthermore, while there were numerous humorous parts to this book mostly involving doll funerals; , this was not nearly as funny as The Duchess Deal.
The heroine Alex could have been amazing if she ended up with someone better. The supporting characters were great as well. Definitely not one that I will be rereading though. Tessa Dare's latest novel, The Governess Game: Girl Meets Duke is a familiar trope of a governess falling for the handsome guardian of precocious children and yet The characters are so very memorable, everyone of them.
They stay with you after you finish the novel. Heroine Alexandra Mountbatten is singularly unique for her time. In Regency England she stands out among the English roses. She is an American, and Filipino and Spanish. She is smart and longs for security, she already is independent but she lives with her two friends and her dream is her own little cottage.
Alex is logical and romantic. She has harbored a secret yen for a handsome man who knocked the books out of her hand at the bookshop. She never thinks she will ever see him again but she does and he becomes her employer. Chase Reynaud will one day inherit a dukedom. He is a libertine and unapologetic for it.
He is also guardian to two girls who have run off many a governess. He believes Alex to be applying for the position of governess she's isn't, she is there to fix his clocks. He is desperate and offers her quite a bit of money to take charge of the girls for the summer, just until they can be sent away to boarding school. From the first moments Alex enters Chase's home, there is a sense of wonder and joy that Alex and her charges feel when they are together.
Indeed, some of the best moments in this book are between Alex and the girls. Her kind, compassionate nature is a driving force in her relationship with the orphans who are hilariously funny. I simply adored these young girls who were fiercely loyal to each other. Alex's relationship with Chase is logical and incredibly emotional.
Alex is gentle and insightful when it comes to her dealings with Chase. Alex is a constant surprise and the dialogue between the leads is also written well, especially when the two are emotionally honest with each other. Her background was so unique and interesting that I wish I could have known her as a young girl, standing side by side with her father on the high seas. One of the drawbacks of this novel, and it is a small one, is that I wanted more background on all the characters.
Chase is a typical and not so typical rogue. He was so attracted to Alex and the reader sees it in his actions and his words. His point of view describes his inner life so well that the reader understands his conflicted feelings for Alex. Chase is a good man who just cannot accept that his past mistakes do not have to define him. Fortunately, he has three females living in his home to remind him just how precious love is. I rooted for everyone of these characters as soon as I met them.
I wanted them to be a family, I wanted Chase to lower his guard, I wanted Alex to work some magic with her thoughtfulness. That all happens and the end of this novel just comes way too soon. I wanted to know more about their life together. I sincerely hope that Ms. Dare writs sequels about the girls, Rosamund and Daisy. I've read quite a bit of historical romance, and this one is definitely a top tier book.
The Duchess Deal (Girl meets Duke, Book 1)
Before he could face any of it, he needed a drink. As he made his way to the bar, he navigated a card table draped with a dustcloth and a stack of paintings propped against the wall, waiting to be hung. The apartment was a work in progress. He had a well-furnished bedchamber upstairs, of course, but for now he needed a space as far away from the nursery as architecturally possible. He would rather not know what mischief his wards wrought at the top of the house, and they must never learn of the devilry he practiced at the bottom of it.
Her shoes tapped over the cobblestones at an irritated clip. My body is not for let. Your fingers are for let. It was a rusty, unappealing sound.

I keep them in a little book and pore over it from time to time, whilst sipping brandy and indulging in throaty, ominous laughter. Surely you know the feeling of infatuation. Everyone does. About me. I have an unfortunate habit of looking for the best in people, and it makes me blind to their flaws.

Сьюзан застенчиво улыбнулась. - Если будет еще интереснее, чем этой ночью, я не смогу встать. Дэвид привлек ее к себе, не ощущая тяжести. Вчера он чуть не умер, а сегодня жив, здоров и полон сил. Сьюзан положила голову ему на грудь и слушала, как стучит его сердце. А ведь еще вчера она думала, что потеряла его навсегда. - Дэвид, - вздохнула она, заметив на тумбочке его записку.
- Скажи мне, что такое без воска.
Дэвид - это отличная кандидатура. Стратмор отрешенно кивнул: - Он вернется сегодня вечером. Сьюзан представила себе, что пришлось пережить коммандеру, - весь этот груз бесконечного ожидания, бесконечные часы, бесконечные встречи.

Эта тактика себя оправдала. Хотя в последнее мгновение Беккер увернулся, Халохот сумел все же его зацепить. Он понимал, что пуля лишь слегка оцарапала жертву, не причинив существенного ущерба, тем не менее она сделала свое.

Фонтейн ничего не ответил, погруженный в глубокое раздумье. Слова Сьюзан Флетчер о том, что ключ находится в Испании, показались ему обнадеживающими.
