Historical romance is the first genres that made me fall in love with romance novels. I love the descriptions of glittering ballrooms, drafty castles and Dukes around every corner! I don’t read as many historical as I used to but there are a couple of ones that are on my 31 days of book list!
I actually read a physical copy of this book! There is something about reading historical not on kindle that appeals to me. I remember going to used books stores to trade paperback copies of my favorite historical romance reads. If you are looking for a fun and witty Historical romance then look no further! I loved this tale of redemption and love. This book is hilarious as well! There is wit and charm on each page. There is a rake and unconventional heroine and a couple of spunky wards. This book is for a historical romance lover or just a lover of a good story! This is apart of the Girls Meets Duke series and I would recommend checking out the rest of the series!

He’s been a bad, bad rake—and it takes a governess to teach him a lesson
The accidental governess
After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart . . . without risking her own.
The infamous rake
Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to give her an education—in pleasure. That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling . . . and he’s in danger of falling, hard.
