Governesses are not supposed to fall in love. Governesses are not supposed to marry. Governesses don’t always follow society’s conventions.

Til’ All the Seas Gang Dry by Josi S. Kilpack
It has been six years since Dina left London and David and whatever fantasy she had allowed to grow in the months of flirtation that had nearly overtaken them both. Now, David is getting married and he and his fiancé are guests at the home where Dina works as a governess. Convinced the connection they felt was nothing more than childhood fancy, Dina is taken by surprise to find that her feelings have not changed, and, she fears, David’s have not either. Still, she is determined not to interfere with the life he has worked so hard to build … until she realizes that his fiancé is not nearly as committed to him as he is to her. No one will trust her motivations for revealing the truth, not even David, and she could ruin everything she had built here, but if it spares David heartbreak, is it worth the sacrifice?

The One-Year Governess by Heather B. Moore
When Emmeline Finch’s best friend becomes betrothed to the man Emmeline had picked out for herself, she decides she needs to get away for one year. Her aunt has the perfect solution. Become a governess for two children who are under the guardianship of their uncle, Captain Jasper Ridout. But when Emmeline arrives at the home, she finds the Captain not at all ancient as she assumed, but a man only a handful of years older than she, and most certainly single.

Visible by Julie Daines
Orphaned at a young age, Sarah Woolsey’s prospects for a meaningful future are grim, especially as a housemaid in the home of the handsome but aloof Arthur Selwood. When an abandoned child is left at Mr. Selwood’s door, Sarah is elevated from housemaid to governess in the blink of an eye. But with a man she’s running from closing in, Sarah is desperate to escape. Leaving would mean breaking the trust of the child she’s come to love, not to mention her growing attachment to Mr. Selwood.

    I won this book in a drawing on Storytellers in Zion. I was so happy since it had been on my TBR list. I love a good fall for the governess story. This is a nice collection of sweet, clean romance.

    I loved how David resolved the conflict of the story. It was not a typical Regency scene I don’t think. I think it was a pretty public confrontation for the time period but it was great. I have often thought I’d love to see something like this when reading other books so it was fun.

    The One Year Governess by Heather B Moore
    Sweet relationship between the love interests as well as with the children. How a person survives on such little sleep I don’t know. But I enjoyed how her presence improved the Captain’s calm and ability to sleep. Sweet story.

    This might be my favorite of the lot. I liked how it showed the life of a servant in a wealthy home. How hard would it be to be invisible! I think it would be awful to try to be invisible all the time. And to be told and expected to be invisible instead of a person. I LOVED Sarah and her inability to hold her tongue and be invisible. And some of her outbursts reminded me a little of Anne, of Green Gables fame. They made me smile. I couldn’t figure out Mr. Selwood for most of the story. He seemed to be something of a stick. Just there sans personality until he would have these moments where he showed concern and caring behavior. Then just as quickly he was a stick again. The reader didn’t get to understand him any faster than Sarah did. We got to have the “aha” moment together.

    Sex: some kisses, a little leering.
    Language: no
    Violence: some. Violence against women as well as men. Not too graphic.
    *I won this book from Storytellersinzion.com and voluntarily chose to review it
