Publisher's Summary

When a governess of many languages is required, there is only one place the nobility of England go: the Governess Bureau.

Of course, Miss Elizabeth Fletcher doesn't broadcast that information. Constantly under-estimated and treated like the children she's responsible for, all she wants is a duke assignment and the respect of her peers.

Stuart Morton, Lord Galcrest, has never taken life seriously and doesn't want to start now. But when they arrive, bickering, at the home of the duc d'Allaire, everything changes. There's a mysterious rift between their hosts, and both Elizabeth and Stuart are plunged into situations neither can control.

Assuming she cannot understand, secrets are spoken before her which start to hint at something scandalous . . .

Elizabeth grows increasingly furious with the man who brought her here. Such a shame he's so handsome, and stealing kisses from her when she should be attempting to keep a pair of prankster twins under control.

As scandal suddenly rocks the d'Allaire family, Elizabeth is forced to choose: help rescue the reputation of her master, or leave Stuart to fix the mess he's inadvertently created.

The house party is about to begin . . .

Boring and Tiresome

This is my first book by this author and the story could have been so much better. I have suffered through to chapter 15 where they have their first kiss and the storyline has been incredibly boring. All of the characters in the story except the heroine are a bunch of rude, condescending, pathetic idiots. And the children that the governess is to take care of are mean brats.

Within the first two chapters I was tired of the heroin Elizabeth being sarcastically referred to as a mouse. That dreadful moniker continues to be used throughout the book. The ner'do well so-called hero has no redeeming qualities, hiring the governess as a joke/ gift to his friends who are having a 4 week house party. The governess is to turn the petulant 10-year-old twins into studious charmers while their parents have abandoned them to the care of the governess in their nursery.

Dreadful and tiresome. Fast forwarding looking for something to make me want to listen to the end, like sex.
