When Miss Samantha Prendregast arrives at Devil’s Fell to take charge of six rebellious girls, the vibrant, outspoken governess is not quite prepared to deal with the tall, dark and dashing master of the grand estate. The children she can manage with intelligence, guile . . . and a little bribery. Their widowed father, Colonel William Gregory, is not so easily charmed — and far too easy to fall in love with, which she dares not do.
William always cherished the orderliness of his life, until this captivating troublemaker began flouting his authority and distracting him with her witty defiance and breathtaking beauty. Despite the fact that they clash at every meeting, William finds himself inexplicably drawn to Samantha’s fire. And now he’s even contemplating marriage, which would be sweet madness indeed.
But before he can successfully woo her, William must discover what it is that Samantha is hiding from him. But the secret the lady is preciously guarding is far too shocking and dangerous to ever reveal .
Why My Favorite Bride?
This is such a wonderful romance, and its always fun to do a re read of this one when I am in the mood for it. It has a “sound of music” theme to the story. A military hero widow and a governess that is bold and takes the children in hand. The chemistry that we have between these two is vibrant and strong. We have some involvement of spies and treachery, mystery and passion. We also see some real issues that come alive on the pages, The secret that our heroine holds, is quite fabulous, in the way that it makes William view the world in a different way. The six little girls are utterly adorable and mischievous. We have a story that is the true epitome of a historical regency romance. Full of emotional depth, romance, and sensuality.
