It's pretty common with romance novels. Celeste is a governess and there is the whole espionage. When murder and peril threaten, the only way Chloë can survive is to trust the man who has betrayed her.

The Distinguished Academy of Governesses opens its doors to train young women for respectable occupations…unfortunately, Miss Charlotte Dalrumple discovers her first position is to teach Lord Wynter Ruskin, sadly uncivilized by his travels abroad, to take his proper place in society. We also have a illegitimate child that must be acknowledged and loved. Rather, his behavior is scandalous, and his reputation rightly earned. And the passion she senses smoldering beneath his formidable control is tempting her in a manner a lady must never allow. I really enjoyed reading this book. Still, she cannot disregard the fluttering of her heart whenever Garrick deigns to smile at her. Garrick is probably one of the better Governess Bride series heroes so far, though that is sadly not saying much.

How can I ever go on without him? The elder Throckmorton will have no one interfere with the younger's impending nuptials, and his meddling infuriates Celeste to no end. Think The King and I with great sex and less singing. Indeed — Adorna's glance flicked to the wall behind Throckmorton — young Celeste seemed to have developed a penchant for spying.
The heroine exasperated me at the start with how naive and willf I haven't seen Sabrina so I did enjoy this book as it was. Upon her return 4 years later she is determined to win the younger son.

English thing was a little annoying and at one point, I found myself wondering if Ms. Night after night, she satisfies his wicked cravings. Plus, the original Sabrina is one of my all-time-favorite movies! Garrick was an incredible man full of confidence and emotional stability.

The other books in the series are re-reads for me, except for this book. The story in this book was good, though with the espionage subplot it was also unnecessarily busy.
