The governess was wicked - Julia Kelly

Elizabeth Porter is quite happy with her position as the governess for two sneaky-yet-sweet girls when she notices that they have a penchant for falling ill and needing the doctor. As the visits from the dashing and handsome Doctor Edward Fellows become more frequent, Elizabeth quickly sees through the lovesick girls’ ruse. Yet even Elizabeth can’t help but notice Edward’s bewitching bedside manner even as she tries to convince herself that someone of her station would not make a suitable wife for a doctor. But one little kiss won’t hurt. 

My thoughts:
Elizabeth was a governess, and she was happy with her job.
Edward was a doctor, that got called to the house a lot. And he fancied her.
But she was a governess and she had rules to follow. Which I understood, she could get fired, and what would she do then. Stay the course.

Obviously they soon get it on. They will find a way.

It's a novella, so it does not really have time to evolve. I do think it would have worked great as a novel. The romance would have had time to build more. But I could still believe it, they really wanted each other and that was their romance.

There is a bit of drama at the end to make it harder for them and then they lived happily ever after. A cute short novella.

  1. It can be hard with novellas because the plot has to move forward quickly, but glad to see it was still believable to you.

  3. Cute! I really like HR novellas because all the *following the rules* drama gets on my nerves in the full length books. Karen @For What It's Worth

  6. Novellas either work or they don't. It's hard to put a lot of story into that size of a book.

  11. Do you think there's room to write a novel making this a prequel?

    1. Oh no, that would be beyond evil, making them struggle for a HEA again. Not believable

  19. I was curious about this one...not sure how I feel about it being a novella. I do love governess themed romances though.
