she thinks Clare s husband is responsible for her dismissal Daphne feels the need to find out the truth and bring the responsible to the courts of law.Daphne is living as her cousin thought her to, trying to enjoy life as much as possible without thinking much about the consequences of her actions Thanks to this she is found in a compromising situation Her family decides to send her away from London for sometime until the scandal in which she was involved dies down During her trip to the country Daphne meets with a governess bound to the Colton residence Mrs Collins is the new governess for Clare s children Daphne sees this as an opportunity to infiltrates the Colton s household and decides to buy off Mrs Collins and pose as the new governess The only problem is that she has never been a good student, she is really bad for math and languages and doesn t like children.Lord Colton is not what Daphne was expecting, her cousin always describe him as a despicable man and in reality he could be anything but that She is also caring for the children a lotthan what she ever thought possible.Nowthan ever she needs to find out the truth, not just for her but also for the wellbeing of the family.Lord Colton is a torture hero, he was not just cheated and deceived countless times by his deceased wife but also received many public humiliations from her Now he feels guilty because of the circumstances of her death and feels he doesn t deserve anything good or positive in his life.On the beginning Daphne is as a selfish and immature girl, but with the passing of times and the experiences she is living she grows and matures becoming a caring and areal woman.Lord Colton and Daphne s chemistry was perceivable since their first meeting and evolved page after page Their relationship felt real and was well developed, even though there were some things as their first close encounter that I found a little bit unrealistic and a bit shameful as Daphne first experience.I loved the kids, they are caring and protecting of each other and of their family in general But what I liked the most is that they behave as kids do They felt real and it was very easy to begin to care for them.My final thought Dangerous Lord, Innocent Governess was an entertaining historical romance with a gothic touch, a plot with some twists and turns and a nice romance to add on to the story The characters are developed really well the setting is an interesting one and the transformation they characters experienced was plausible and feasible.Dangerous Lord, Innocent Governess by Christine Merrill was my first book by this author and I m sure it won t be my last.I recommend this book to all historical romance readers Daphne is convinced there isto her cousin Clare s death than meets the eye In fact, Daphne is certain that Clare s husband Timothy is to blame So in order to find the truth, Daphne poses as a governess for Clare s children The plan is simple ingratiate herself into the household and expose Timothy as a murderer She never expects to care for the children And certainly, she could never anticipate the undeniable attraction between Tim and herself Yet, she finds herself falling in love Daphne is convinced there isto her cousin Clare s death than meets the eye In fact, Daphne is certain that Clare s husband Timothy is to blame So in order to find the truth, Daphne poses as a governess for Clare s children The plan is simple ingratiate herself into the household and expose Timothy as a murderer She never expects to care for the children And certainly, she could never anticipate the undeniable attraction between Tim and herself Yet, she finds herself falling in love with the entire family With her changing feelings, she starts questioning whether Tim is really a man who could commit murder and she realizes her cousin may not have been the woman she thought she knew I enjoyed this book It had a kind of gothic, Jane Eyre feel to it I know some people are put off by such a similarity, but it worked for me There was solid sexual tension, steamy love scenes and some delicious angst from our brooding hero All good things, as far as I m concerned It wasn t perfect It s kind of hard to like Daphne at first She s pretty self absorbed and callous about the children though that changes over the course of the book And I was a little taken aback by the manner in which she lost her virginity I won t get into specifics, but it s not exactly gentle and there was no acknowledgement that such a thing may not be all sunshine and roses for an innocent But, in the grand scheme of things, I wasn t bothered all that much It was sexy, dark and satisfying 4 starsARC Provided by NetGalley Dangerous Lord, Innocent Governess is a sequel to

this one, he is the tormented hero suspected of murdering his wife Daphne Collingham, cousin to his wife, is among those who are suspicious of him She infiltrates his household in the guise of governess to his three children Predictably, the innocent governess, after suitably harrowing moments of doubt, fear, and reluctant attraction, falls in love with her charges and their dangerous and lordly father.There is little new in the plot Merrill uses, but she crafts her characters with great skill and writes lucid prose in an appealing voice I thought having read Miss Winthorpe s Elopement added an interesting layer to DLIG, but the latter book can easily be read as a standalone Readers who dislike children may be unhappy with the roles of Lord Dalton s three offspring, but those who like their romance Gothic flavored should enjoy this one I admit reading it left me nostalgic for the older Gothics that I read by the dozens in the 70s I don t think this is Christine Merrill at her best, but it is an entertaining read This book will be released July 1 I received my copy from the publisher via NetGalley This book got better as it went on I didn t really appreciate the premise of the story, but that s a personal choice I m guessing most of the things I don t like about the book might boil down to personal preference so take the rating for what it s worth I found the first love scene, in which she is a virgin, to be outlandish and overly painful, it paints the hero as a complete jerk, an unrecoverable jerk As for her, her motives were absolutely ridiculous I don t like the cover muchI roll This book got better as it went on I didn t really appreciate the premise of the story, but that s a personal choice I m guessing most of the things I don t like about the book might

for review Sooo sweet Loved how she went from high society girl to demure country governess she find her true self it s not in the countless new ball gowns or endless ton parties, but with love of a great man a family to call her own Eeeekkkkkssss Yipppeeee LOVED THIS STORY Awwwww true love.a second time around Lord Colton was a tortured soul Miss Collins Collingham has never been a governess, but embraced the role out of loyalty to her cousin finding out how Sooo sweet Loved how she went from high society girl to demure country governess she find her true self it s not in the countless new ball gowns or endless ton parties, but with love of a great man a family to call her own Eeeekkkkkssss Yipppeeee LOVED THIS STORY Awwwww true love.a second time around Lord Colton was a tortured soul Miss Collins Collingham has never been a governess, but embraced the role out of loyalty to her cousin finding out how she really died It is always heartbreaking to figure out a close family friend is not who you though they were Grrrrr Clare her vain in humane treatment of her children husband They never should of married in first place, with that said Lord Colton Miss Collins would not been able to meet like they did fall in love It was such a touching story of letting go of the past, but also figuring it out so it had no power to torment any longer Proper British spelling yippeeee Authentic regency romance TRULY A KEEPER Will re read this anytime This story was ok for me I just couldn t quite connect with the characters Daphne seemed much too willful and childish although she did change a lot Lord Colton was a bit too brooding although I could see that he had gone through a lot I guess it might have helped if I had read the first book in the series.I liked the suspense in the story of what really happened to the dead wife and I felt bad for what the children had gone though I received this as an ARC from NetGalley The dark Lord s ultimate temptation Daphne Collingham is convinced that her beloved cousin died at the hands of her husband, Timothy, Lord Colton, so decides to masquerade as a governess in his home to discover the truth What Daphne hasn t bargained on is how the brooding Lord will make her feel under his dark gaze Lord Colton is suspicious of the alluring new governess and with the scandal surrounding him he must control his passion But a man has his limits, and the delectable Miss Collingham is pure temptation I enjoyed this follow up to Miss Winthorpe s elopement and hearingabout the relationship between Timothy Colton and his wife Clare Timothy is a great romantic hero a little of Mr Rochester s from Jane Eyre appeal Wounded emotionally and so deserving of better I can t say muchwithout adding spoilers Suffice to say I enjoy Christine Merrill s writing very much and look forward to discoveringof her books. Daphne is convinced that Lord Timothy killed her cousin, his wife She pretends to be a governess and starts investigating She comes to find out a lot about her cousin and her treatment of her family and of course falls for Lord Timothy.
