About the book:

In Vanessa Kelly’s enchanting series, three young women descended from royalty overcome their scandalous beginnings to win the hearts of the ton’s most eligible men . . .
The illegitimate daughter of the Prince Regent might be expected to pursue various dubious professions. Actress, perhaps, or artist’s model. Even courtesan. Victoria Knight, however, has become a governess—a respectable choice, until she travels to Scotland to meet her new charges. The younger brothers of Nicholas Kendrick, Earl of Arnprior, aren’t children at all. They’re brawny, wild Highland men. As for the Earl, he’s handsome, guarded, and far too compelling . . . especially for a woman hiding a dark secret.

Nick needs a proper teacher to transform his unmarriageable brothers—and a sensible,
straight-laced wife for himself. Miss Knight seems to fit the bill on both counts. But he soon discovers there is more to Victoria than he thought. It’s not just her notorious origins, or the danger that’s followed her all the way to Scotland. It’s the fiery loyalty beneath that sedate façade. This, the real Victoria, is the woman Nick is starting to desire so desperately. And what an earl wants, he’ll use every seductive means to get . . .

My Thoughts:

This was such a fun read that I finished in one night because I didn’t want to put it down. It’s book 3 in the series but I had no problem reading it as a standalone. I adored Victoria’s character and admire her for standing her ground with Nick’s brothers and uncle. She has spunk, determination and a good heart. It was hilarious watching her spar with Nick’s uncle and slowly help reform Nick’s brothers. I also loved Nick as a hero because you can see he is trying so hard to do right by all his brothers and they certainly do not make it easy on him.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers but trust me this is a wonderful, fun read that you do not want to miss! I’ve read book 2 in the series and now have to go pick up book 1 because I love all the other characters we meet in this book. I’m hoping we will eventually get all of Nick’s brothers’ stories too.
