After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten finds herself taking the post of governess for two adorable and troublesome little girls. Their guardian, Chase Reynauld, is a renowned rake and Alex finds herself struggling to not fall in love with him. 

Alexandra and Chase’s romance was an enjoyable slow-building one that was filled with pining and emotional scars. Alex was a remarkably smart woman who had a very fascinating childhood. I thought she was wonderful with the girls, especially with finding ways to get them interested in learning. 

Chase was a rake but an honorable one. I found his determination to keep Alex and the kids at a distance a little annoying after a while, but his fears were understandable. I really enjoyed his dedication to providing eulogies for Daisy’s doll’s many deaths. While I don’t normally love kids in romances, these two kids were pretty enjoyable, especially Daisy and her morbid curiosity. 

I enjoyed this second book in the Girl Meets Duke series. It was a good follow up to Emma and Ash’s story. I can’t wait to read the next book because it is Lady Penelope’s!
