Every so often I find historical romances. The title interests me, or in this case the series, and I start reading. I must say that I am pretty impressed that they were able to put together this series with a variety of authors.
Meet Adele Vere, who is the perfect English governess. Or at least that is the front that was raised to show. Well, that is after the death of her mother. She was taken in by a couple, that raised her to be better than what she would have had otherwise (in this time).
Edward Coyne is the stable master. Who, it would seem, is set out to break through the mask Ms. Vere is hiding behind. He thinks that there is more to her than the “proper English governess.”
There is a fire that almost destroys any chance of Mr. Coyne from finding out what is behind that mask. Will they be able to over come this incident? Will Ms. Vere be able to forgive Mr. Coyne’s actions? Much less her own?
There are a lot things that can be told, but if they are … well, I should just tell the entire story. I don’t providing spoilers, they ruin the read.
Ms. Turner has created a tale of two people who have so much to deal with in life. Where they will be in months to come, as well as parts of their pasts. She creates an interesting tale involving some of the staff currently at the Beckworth estate.
As for the series … yes, I had to read them all. “Bloody Hell” how was I to find out what happened to all the extra characters in the book. (Just keep reading the letters from the head housekeeper & lawyer … they are interesting & would have made a GREAT story to go with this series!)
