The Governess Game (Girl Meets Duke #2) by Tessa Dare


4 Stars

When Chase Reynaud becomes guardian to two precocious young girls, he is way out of his depth. Prepared to send them away for school, all he needs is the perfect governess to whip them into shape. Unfortunately, his charges have a lot of mischief up their sleeves…

And then the perfect solution walks right in his door…

Alexandra Mountbatten is not a governess, but with desperate times and a Duke who won’t take no for an answer, she’s about to become one…


This was such a fun read! I had quite a few laugh out loud moments in this historical tale that featured very modern and fascinating characters.

Chase was not prepared to become the future duke, or the guardian of two young girls. With a feeling of being unworthy of love, he prefers to spend his time with women who only want one thing… and marriage is not it.

Alexandra was raised on a ship, and once she lost her father, she spent her upbringing away at school, and subsequently all alone. Being tasked with teaching two young girls in a very similar situation to her childhood, she has a unique take on how to take care of them.

He is a reluctant duke, she is a woman used to taking care of herself, but when the future of the girls is their focus, the lessons they are all learning together may just irrevocably change their lives…

I loved the characters in this story, with Chase and Alexandra being not your typical historical romance couple, you don’t know what to expect next from them. Sexy and refreshingly funny, this book is definitely a must read!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
