New York Times and USA Today Bestseller He’s been a bad, bad rake—and it takes a governess to teach him a lesson The accidental governess After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart . . . without risking her own.

Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling . . . and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

The Governess Game Book Review:

Alexandra Mountbatten had common sense. That's what her friends believed.The truth was, Alex had no sense at all at least, not when it came to charming gentlemen with roguish green eyes. If she possessed any wisp of rationality, she wouldn't have made such a fool of herself with the Bookshop Rake.Even now, more than half a year later, she could revisit the embarrassing scene and watch it unfolding, as though she were attending a play.The setting: Hatchard's bookshop.The date: a Wednesday afternoon in November.The personages: Alexandra, of course. Her three closest friends: Nicola Teague, Lady Penelope Campion, and Emma Pembrooke, the Duchess of Ashbury. And, making his first appearance in a starring role (trumpet fanfare, please) the Bookshop Rake...

The Bride Bet Book Review:

How to lose a duke in ten years...without losing your heart. Once upon a time, two sworn enemies--the bookish daughter of a scholar and the devilish heir to a duke--made a pact: If they were both still single in ten years, they would marry each other. It was a joke, Nicola thought. A duchess? Her? But when the Duke of Westleigh returns a decade later, he's serious. He needs an heir, so he's holding her to their marriage bargain--diamond ring, lavish gown, engagement ball, and more. Nothing Nicola says can dissuade him. When she calls him arrogant, he praises her honesty. When she makes social stumbles, he catches her fall. And when she gets exasperated, the duke can't seem to get enough. For reasons she can't fathom, he claims that no other woman will do. He's betting he can change her mind, with logic and passion. She's betting she can change his mind, just by being herself. And as the clock ticks down to a wedding day, neither is counting on losing their heart.

Hot Heir Book Review:

If I'd known he had dimples, I never would've agreed to marry him. Some people are born for parenthood. Not me. But I'm about to get it anyway, since there's no one else who can take care of my wild child baby sister. I'm supposed to be spending my days running a flight adventure company with my best friend, but instead, I'm inadvertently getting myself into trouble, just trying to do the right thing and keep her out of trouble, to the point that it's clear I cannot do this on my own. But who else would want to help us? Turns out, my biggest enemy. Mr. Tall, Dark, and Cranky just inherited a country, but in order for Amoria to crown him as King-you know, that job they give to people with no more demanding qualifications than flared nostrils, proper manners, and a taste for crumpets-he needs a wife. Now. Obviously the only person he would ask is as irresistible (and desperate) as me. And I see no better way to prove I'm ready to take care of my sister than to wear the crown of a queen. No one's ever found fault with royalty, and hey, the job comes with round-the-clock security. Except in return for helping save my sister, Mr. I'm-Not-Sure-You're-Even-A-Real-Prince Viktor tells me he needs the teeniest, tiniest favor. You see, he doesn't just need help saving his crown. He needs help saving his country. Remember when I said no one ever found fault with royalty? Try asking that question after you see your frazzled face under the front-page headline of a small country's leading gossip mag... Hot Heir is a romping fun marriage of convenience romance between a surprise heir and a southern hot mess, complete with the bedroom to end all bedrooms, a run-down alpaca, and that thing with the hot air balloon. This romantic comedy stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers and ends with a royally awesome happily ever after.

The Royal Governess Book Review:

“This captivating page-turner whisks readers back in time to Buckingham Palace in 1933…A majestic story that delves into the incredible life of Queen Elizabeth II before she took her place on the throne.”—Woman’s World Sunday Times bestselling author Wendy Holden brings to life the unknown childhood years of one of the world’s most famous figures, Queen Elizabeth II, and reveals the spirited young governess who made her the icon we love today. In 1933, twenty-two-year-old Marion Crawford accepts the role of a lifetime, tutoring the little Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose. Her one stipulation to their parents the Duke and Duchess of York is that she bring some doses of normalcy into their sheltered and privileged lives. At Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Balmoral, Marion defies stuffy protocol to take the princesses on tube trains, swimming at public baths, and on joyful Christmas shopping trips at Woolworth’s. From her ringside seat at the heart of the British monarchy she witnesses twentieth-century history’s most seismic events. The trauma of the Abdication, the glamour of the Coronation, the onset of World War II. She steers the little girls through it all, as close as a mother. During Britain’s darkest hour, as Hitler’s planes fly over Windsor, she shelters her charges in the castle dungeons (not far from where the Crown Jewels are hidden in a biscuit tin). Afterwards, she is present when Elizabeth first sets eyes on Philip. But being beloved confidante to the Windsors comes at huge personal cost. Marriage, children, her own views: all are compromised by proximity to royal glory. In this majestic story of love, sacrifice and allegiance, bestselling novelist Holden shines a captivating light into the years before Queen Elizabeth II took the throne.
