Review: Rules for a Proper Governess (Mackenzies & McBrides #7) by Jennifer Ashley

Thursday, September 22
My rating:

Scottish barrister Sinclair McBride can face the most sinister criminals in London - but the widower’s two unruly children are a different matter. Little Caitlin and Andrew go through a governess a week, sending the ladies fleeing in tears.

Roberta “Bertie” Frasier enters Sinclair’s life by stealing his watch - and then stealing a kiss. Intrigued by the handsome highlander, Bertie winds up saving his children from a dangerous situation and returns them to their father. Impressed with how they listen to her, Sinclair asks the lively beauty to be their governess, never guessing that the unconventional lady will teach him a lesson or two in love.


Quote…Other women could bleat about necklaces and rings, but give Bertie a fat tea cake, and she was in heaven.

Bertie - you are a woman after my own heart ♥

What I loved:
- I one-clicked this after reading a review. I never do that! But I'm so glad I did. This story has everything I love.
A bold, whirlwind heroine with a great heart and loyal nature.
A sexy, tortured, domineering, widower / single father hero.
Smoking hot-ness.
An intriguing storyline.
Action and drama aplenty.
I googled it, people can still say aplenty.

Authentic relationship development and real friendships.
Characters I love
and characters I love to hate.

Just... hell yes to all!

- Um, also... Lord Ian (of The Madness of Lord Ian Makenzie fame) is in it. I didn't stand a chance.
Quote…Ian smiled at her, his face blossoming into happiness. "My Jamie is a handful," He said proudly. "My girls, too."


What I didn’t love:
- There was something in the way Basher McBride told the story of how he met his wife that gave everything away. As soon as I read that part, I knew who the villain sending the notes was.
