After a busy day working towards a long-sought promotion in the Royal Navy, Captain Henry Kincaid arrives home to find his sister has left her three rambunctious children in his care while she adventures to the Nile. He adores his nieces and nephew, but caring for them is a full-time job that puts his regimented house out of joint. In a panic, he goes to Miss Prentice’s School for Girls to request the assistance of an emergency governess. Miss Georgina Rowe knows that she is an excellent teacher, but getting placed with a family has taken far longer than she expected. Being a temporary governess for the Kincaid household is the perfect chance for her to earn a letter of recommendation, but her own awful history with rigidity and order immediately puts her and the handsome but meticulous Henry at odds. As affection and lust continue to grow between Henry and Georgina, his promotion forces both to consider their futures and whether there is a path they can pursue together.
VERDICT Heath (the “Wild Warriners” and “Merriwell Sisters” romances) starts an enjoyable new Regency series featuring a determined governess who knows exactly how she wants to live her life and a naval captain who is realizing that he doesn’t.
