The Secret Desires of a Governess by Tiffany Clare
This is a good book for those of you who enjoy gothic romances. True to formula - the heroine is actually a governess & a virgin, but she's not a goody-goody. She admittedly lies when it suits her purpose and is accomplished at it, and she does give it up to the dark, brooding hero. I like that she is strong-willed and does what she thinks is right. The hero is a great mountain of a man (the author seems to like her heroes exceptionally big & brawny) but he genuinely loves his son and tries to protect both him and Abby (the heroine & governess). There are quite a few love scenes in this book, but I felt like there weren't as many as there were in the previous book. I kind of figured out who the baddies were pretty much from the start but I liked the book and the great wind-swept, gothic atmosphere.
