Goodreads

Hugo Marshall earned the nickname "the Wolf of Clermont" for his ruthless ambition--a characteristic that has served him well, elevating the coal miner's son to the right hand man of a duke. When he's ordered to get rid of a pestering governess by fair means or foul, it's just another day at work.

But after everything Miss Serena Barton has been through at the hands of his employer, she is determined to make him pay. She won't let anyone stop her--not even the man that all of London fears. They might call Hugo Marshall the Wolf of Clermont, but even wolves can be brought to heel...

Audio Rating: 4.50 (Not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: The Governess Affair had elements that I normally hate but it totally worked in this story.

Overall Thoughts: Here is the deal: I am not really a fan of novellas and can only think of a handful of times that one has caused me to buy a whole series. The Governess Affair did that even with elements that I don’t normally like. I will warn you that for a novella, it deals with a pretty heavy subject matter. It is handled with care and done wonderfully. I really enjoyed this and hope the rest of the series is as unique.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrator: Rosalyn Landor/Running Time: 3 h 50 min

Rosalyn Landor is my FAVORITE Historical narrator. I have come to the conclusion that she can do no wrong in my book. She has the perfect voice for historical settings.

    I’m not a huge fan of novellas to sell a series, but I don’t mind one that is a part of a series… to give you a better feel for a character. Hm… not sure if this one is for me, but I’m glad that despite the things that you usually hate, you ended up liking it.
