book review

Review: The Unconventional Governess

Unconventional GovernessOoooo-lah-lah! I loved The Unconventional Governess by Jessica Nelson! The Regency era is one of my favorite eras in romance and this book did not disappoint in any way.

The heroine, Henrietta Gordon, is a fiesty, no-nonsense, intelligent woman who can hold her own in the midst of disappointment, gender discrimination, and loss. The hero, Lord Dominic St. Raven, is the new heir to an earldom, a handsome flirt who has a secret that could destroy his ability to take care of his beloved ward, his ability to hold on to his title, and ultimately his future with the one he has come to love.

I loved the growth of Henrietta and Dominic’s relationship. From instant dislike, to acceptance, to admiration, to love, these two sparked with electricity when together. Their feelings were so tangible and their chemistry undeniable. And Nelson can write a great kissing scene!

I have to say Nelson’s attention to the details of the time period were spot on. She completely captured the era and I hope she continues to write in the genre.
