His Tempting Governess

His Tempting Governess

Delightful Doings in Dudley Crescent, Book 2
Cerise DeLand • Fall 2016

At Number 18, Baldwin Summers, the Earl of Cartwell, deals with three problems in his house. At thirty-six, he has decided to give up his two mistresses. They’re lovely women, really, but he’s very bored. He’s tired of gambling as well. He’s won land and houses and fortunes far too often, and to be frank, the thrill is gone. He’s enticed now by the lure of managing them.

Recently he’s had thrust upon him quite suddenly his cousin’s eight-year-old daughter. The child is a terror and needs a firm hand. With no idea how to mold her into a socially acceptable creature, he hires a governess.

However, that woman presents his most pressing problem. She mesmerizes his ward. But she’s enchanting him. And it’s a wonder because she is so very lively, lovely—and odd. She recites Latin like Cicero, defeats him every time at chess—and dances. Nightly. In his drawing room. Alone.

He cannot ignore her. He cannot control her. Worse, he cannot quell his mad desire to kiss her.

But can he offend the ton and do what he really wants?

Can make her more than his governess?

And would such a bluestocking deign to become his countess?
