Registered users may leave comments. Of course, these two fall in love and she sees through his silly facade and attire which is all an act to play the Moricadians. Treasure of the Sun. Strange situation with avenging a loved one killed. It’s kind of a strange “I am woman, hear me roar” transformation, where dumping that pesky old virginity lets the heroine grow into her badass proto-feminist self in a way that hanging on to her virtue couldn’t.
His family hires Caroline shunned by society to act as a governess of sorts to tone down his foppishness and find him a bride. Mar 23, Raelene rated it it was amazing. He does a good job of acting the part though.
Samantha Prendregast didn’t make that mistake. The study of the Distinguished Academy of Governesses had been decorated in shades of pale blue, and Adorna’s christinaa blonde beauty shone like a diamond in a satin setting.
My Fair Temptress (Governess Brides, #8) by Christina Dodd
The repartee between Caroline and Jude could be very funny. There are some time gaps and a few scenes that were way too outlandish to be enjoyed.
The review must be at least 50 characters long. Adorna tried to make it easier for her. Now she must face the consequences. Did we really have to invent a new one? Part of me likes this reclamation of power over sexuality and self, and enjoys the woman taking the lead in bed too often ladies just lie there and take whatever’s dished out to thembut the sex is portrayed in an almost Fifty Shades style of dom-sub, first with the lady cracking the proverbial whip, then the man taking the reins.
Worst spy cover EVER. Please Christina, tell me there will be a sequel! Revenge at Bella Terra. He said my stupidity ruined those chances. Despite the title, I was relieved to find that My Fair Temptress is not a rewrite of My Fair Ladythough it does have at its heart a make-over theme. He endeared himself to me for wanting to stand up for Caroline and for helping not just her but his stepmother as well.

Despite this, I found Caroline to be a generally likable character. December 31st, Home Log in! If only he’d been a dhristina Though not much call for that particular talent, the headmistress did have a position she cgristina would suit Caroline. She is a strong capable woman even though she doesn’t see herself as such. You submitted the following rating and review. She re-read it, and nodded. I basically found her to be vapid and couldn’t even bring myself to care that much that she had been ruined.
This addition to the series, is about a flamboyant dandy who seems superficial dofd naive to say the least.
Jan 22, Dawn rated it liked it Shelves: The ending of this book was excessively drawn out, just like the beginning. Jun 09, Aiga Al rated it really liked it. Dodd’s writing never disappoints.
It seems the further the series goes the more it moves away from governesses and into the spy game. Miss Caroline Ritter is a diamond of the first water and a much chrixtina after debutante.
