Is the best role for a bluestocking a bride?
Rejected by the man she loved, quick-witted bluestocking Rosemary Denby is determined to win the position of governess to the temperamental Lady Miranda, daughter of the Earl of Howland. Surely helping another young lady find the joy in learning is just what she needs to regain her confidence.
Drake, Earl of Howland, is struggling to find his footing as a widowed father, new earl, and suddenly penniless owner of the castle near the cozy spa village of Grace-by-the-Sea. But the new governess has him even more off balance. He loved once and saw his wife die in childbirth. The more he learns about Rosemary, the more he begins to wonder whether he can open his heart again. As danger once more draws closer to the castle on the headland, he and Rosemary must work together to keep the village and his daughter safe. Could his bluestocking governess be the one to teach him a lesson, in love?
If you love sweet, witty Regency romances with a touch of adventure, then you’ll love The Governess’s Earl, the fourth book in Regina Scott’s Grace-by-the-Sea series, where romance and adventure come home.

|I love a good Regency and Regina Scott does one well. Her Grace-By-The-Sea series is very interesting! I have grown so fond of the inhabitants of this little village. This fourth book in the series finds the penniless Earl of Howland now installed in his family’s castle in the vicinity of the village. He hires Rosemary Denby as governess to his precocious daughter Miranda and soon finds himself drawn to her.|
There is also adventure here as the inhabitants are on the look out for French invaders trying to land on their soil. This is a clean and sweet read that will please Regency fans.
I was given a copy of this book by the author. I received no compensation and the opinion in this review is entirely my own.
