Wanted: Governess for duke's unruly children
Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in England, but when it comes to raising twins alone, he knows he needs help. The only problem is the children have chased away half the governesses in London. Until the clever, bold, and far-too-enticing Miss Mari Perkins arrives.
Lost: One heart to an arrogant duke
Mari knows how to wrap even the most rebellious children around her finger. But their demanding, wickedly handsome father? He won't be quite so easy to control. And there's something else she can't seem to command. Her heart. The foolish thing beats so wildly every time the duke is near.
Found: A forbidden passion neither can deny
As his employee, Mari is strictly off-limits. But what if she's the one breaking all his rules? In the game of governess versus duke, how can Edgar maintain his defenses when the only thing he wants to do is let the tempting beauty win . . .?
Mari "rhymes with starry" and Edgar's story is amazing. Though the first chapter was slow to start the rest took off like a shot. I was enthralled in their story from beginning to end. Mari is such a fun twist in the historical romance genre. She sees an opportunity and steps right in. She's unique in her ways with the twins and how to teach them for the period of time the story is set. Edgar is drawn to Mari from the start even though he knows he shouldn't be. He's a man of honor and his love and care for his twins is endearing even though he doesn't know how to show it to them yet. The twins, Edgar's children, who Mari is governess for, are the perfect comedic break through the story. If you enjoy a slow burning historical romance I highly recommend checking out What a Difference a Duke Makes!
