Publisher: Wild Horse Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Heat Rating: 1



Sophie Baird is looking for a way to escape the painful reality of her parents' deaths. Unable to live in their home any longer, she takes a job as a live-in tutor to Anastasia Shipley to remove herself from her painful memories and the feeling that God has abandoned her.

Anastasia has an illness that has prevented her from ever attending school and makes her father, Sebastian, over protective.

When Sophie first meets Sebastian, she cannot deny the intense attraction she feels toward him. When an unexpected romance begins between them, she starts to rebuild her relationship with God, with the help of a certain little girl.

Clare's Review

Sophie needs a new job, to take her mind off her parents death. Sebastian needs a tutor for his daughter Anastasia. She insists its a governess, Sebastian tries to convince her this is real life and not a Jane Austin novel, but the title governess seems to stick. The position is a live-in one and Sophie soon settles in, teaching her charge all that she can. Brought together by Anastasia's frequent bouts of ill health, things come to a head when Sebastian flies to England on a business trip.

This novel by Joanne Troppello, will have you enthralled throughout with its delightful characters and combination of humour and heart stopping moments. If you love Jane Austin, then you'll love this.

5 Tea Cups!
