The second unforgettable novel in USA Today bestselling author Tessa Dare’s Girl Meets Duke series
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.
The infamous rake
Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to give her an education—in pleasure. That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling… and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

RUN READ ALERT!!!!!
I could not put this book down!!! I love everything about this book! This is the first book I have read by this author and I am anxiously awaiting the opportunity to read more. I fell head over heels in love with Rosamund and Daisy and wished I could have been Alex just so I could give them the love they needed. Seeing how Alex adapted to each challenge she was faced with was inspiring and made me hungry for more. The way she touched and changed the lives of the girls and Chase was moving. I am so very glad that they ALL got their happy endings and that this book didn’t leave me questioning as to how things turned out for them all. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
