“Tessa Dare knows how to make us fall in love.”
~ Under the Covers

Tessa Dare knows how to make us fall in love.  THE GOVERNESS GAME is another adorable story that will sweep you off your feet.  With her trademark grumpy heroes, packed full of sexy banter and undeniable chemistry about two completely opposite characters and with plenty of humor to make you giggle.

Yes, this book will make you laugh.  Especially the daily doll death.  OMG!  How hysterical.  I found those were the exact moments I was falling in love with the hero.  Always grouchy in other settings, but his true character shines through from the very beginning in how he reacts to those moments. It’ll make sense when you read it.

This book had all the markings of what I love about historical romance.  A feisty, smart heroine who is also a romantic at heart.  A grumpy and sort of recluse hero.  A pair of charming but troubled little girls that need a some love to adjust to their new life.  This one should be on your must reads list.

While the first book in this series is still my favorite and this one falls second, in no way does that mean it’s not an enjoyable read.  I think Tessa Dare excels at creating stories full of charm and heart that you just can’t get enough of.  This one is another winner and I can’t wait to get more from this series.

About Tessa Dare

Tessa Dare is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of fourteen historical romance novels and five novellas. Her books have won numerous accolades, including Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® award (twice) and the RT Book Reviews Seal of Excellence. Booklist magazine named her one of the “new stars of historical romance,” and her books have been contracted for translation in more than a dozen languages.

Mixing wit, sensuality, and emotion, Tessa writes Regency-set romance novels that feel relatable to modern readers. With her bestselling “Spindle Cove” and “Castles Ever After” series, she has had great fun creating heroines who defy the conventions of their time—engaging in “unladylike” pursuits that range from paleontology to beer-making—and dreaming up the strong-willed, sexy heroes who find their hearts ensnared by them.

A librarian by training and a booklover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she lives with her husband, their two children, and a trio of cosmic kitties.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
