Scottish barrister Sinclair McBride can face the most sinister criminals in London--but the widower's two unruly children are a different matter. Little Caitlin and Andrew go through a governess a week, sending the ladies fleeing in tears. There is, however, one woman in town who can hold her own.

Roberta "Bertie" Frasier enters Sinclair's life by stealing his watch--and then stealing a kiss. Intrigued by the handsome highlander, Bertie winds up saving his children from a dangerous situation and returning them to their father. Impressed with how they listen to her, Sinclair asks the lively beauty to be their governess, never guessing that the unconventional lady will teach him a lesson or two in love.


So What Did I Think Of Rules for a Proper Governess by Jennifer Ashley?

The drama was awesome, intense and captivating with multiple issues that kept grabbing my attention. Them dealing with their differences in class, Sinclair dealing with the tragedy of this past and keeping things together for his kids, Bertie dealing with the harshness of her current life and family and the danger that came from it. As well as the growing feelings between them.

There was blazing passion and Sinclair and Bertie had strong chemistry: With they’re vastly different lifestyles I really loved seeing them connect, finding what connected them and the growth of their blazing love. Their dynamic was fun and sizzling. Even though they lived completely different lifestyles they had this undeniable connection that continued to grow the more time they spent with each other. They had great banter and challenged each other nicely.

The characters were very interesting. Bertie was bold, confident and down to earth dealing with the hard life of the streets of England but still kept her head up and knew her worth. Sinclair was a strong, proper English gentleman but I liked how the more time he spent with Bertie his true wild and sexy side came out.

I found they complimented each other really well, Bertie helping Sinclair come to terms with his past and live again and Sinclair protecting and being there for Bertie. They totally had the yin yang thing going on. Overall I loved Rules for a Proper Governess by Jennifer Ashley!
