Review of The Governess Who Captured His Heart by Sophie Barnes


The first novella in her new series “The Honorable Scoundrels Series” is a wonderful read.  Sophie is excellent at making a novella read like a full-length Romance Novel.  Louise Potter and her two sisters are in financial straits.  Their father died and left them with all his debt.  Louise must find a position as a Governess so that she can help fund her younger sister’s come out.  She has accepted a position and is waiting for the escort of the uncle of the Lady who has offered her the position.  The journey to her new position will take at least 7 days.

Lord Alistair is traveling to his niece’s house in the Country and has been asked to escort the new Governess.  He receives the surprise of his life when the Governess appears at his door.  She is like no Governess he has ever seen.  She is young and beautiful and he cannot imagine spending the next seven days alone in a coach with her.  He has to scramble to provide a chaperone for the journey.

Louise is shocked that the Uncle that she will be sharing a coach with is not a middle-aged portly Gentleman, but a young, virile good looking man.

What could happen in the seven days that they are forced into each other’s company?  Sophie’s writing is witty, passionate and her characters jump right off the page and into your heart.  I really enjoyed this novella and cannot wait for the next one in the series.  I highly recommend this title.
