    37 stars She'd done the most foolish thing a governess could do She had fallen in love with her employer This turned out to be a little hidden gem A sweetly stubborn governess who goes to London to gain their guardian's help in containing her charges A boy on the cusp of being a man and two almost debutante sisters that want to have all the adventures Their guardian is Lord Deverell and there is some scandal in his past that sent him away and has him hurt and maintaining distance from his family Miss Smith has some scandal in her past too that has her wanting to keep her real identity a secret There's really nothing new here but I reveled in the back and forth of Phoebe Miss Smith and Deverell Phoebe had a great backbone that made Deverell want to tease and push her to blushing The debutante sisters were a bit much and the scandals in Phoebe and Deverell's background became too conveniently tangled weave that gets just info dropped in the end with a villain that maybe maybe not had legitimate deteriorating mental facilities The story thankfully allows the chemistry between Deverell and Phoebe to shine and be front and center and I enjoyed the story so much because of them

    It's a Harleuin so it's a bit on the steamy side than the Zebras and Signets that I normally read It was decently good Sebastian as sculpter was so largely ignored that I wondered why it was even included except for the kind of stupid scene where Miss Smith realizes that Sebastian is hiding his hurt but it gets expressed in his work gasp sigh Also Lord Whats His Face's being a little unbalanced is not as good as Cousin Toruil in Heyer's Cousin Kate Comparison to Heyer is setting the bar unfairly high perhaps

    There's than a hint of Heyer in Scandal which features a bossy governess and an alpha male with a pack of troublesome wards Though the heroine can be a bit of a ninny she's well balanced by a gruff possessive hero who wants to take care of her There's a very sweet sex scene at the end which is almost worth the price of the book Very enjoyable trad

    There's nothing of great literary merit here but it was so much fun to watch the principals spar that I just had to give it 4 stars
