Devlin Beaumont's liked being a rake. Whiskey, women, and fun, what more could a man want? All that ends with an unexpected title, three young wards, and a beautiful governess. If that wasn't enough, there is the minor detail that someone is trying to kill him.
Rebecca Jones has to be ever mindful of society's expectations. As the governess to three young girls, she must set an example, a requirement that is sorely tested with the arrival of the new Duke.

I had forgotten I had put this author on my Not To Read Again list until I started this audiobook. The narration, first of all, is bizarre. Random American accents thrown in for the children, for example. I know there have been many mentions of the grammar, spelling, and misused words but most of those are not apparent in the audio version. The writing style, however, does come across and it's very stiff and heavy.
The story itself has been written by several other authors; Lord and governess is a common trope. And other authors have done it much better.
I was hoping this first in a new series would have improved on earlier books and would have a new narrator but no. Even the "mystery" was dull. I hope I remember this review when the next book is released.
