Publisher’s Synopsis: Is This Love Real?

Raised in a girls’ school, Annabelle Quinn longs for the world outside the walls of the academy. When she’s hired as the governess to an orphaned duke, Annabelle never expects the child’s breathtakingly handsome guardian to capture her imagination—or her heart.

Or Are They Living in a Fairytale?

Falling for his young nephew’s governess is an irksome complication in Lord Simon Westbury’s orderly life, but Annabelle’s quiet beauty and wry intellect are too much to resist. Meanwhile, a mysterious danger looms over the remote Cornwall estate. Will their newfound desire stand the test of time? Or are some happy endings just too good to come true?

Why am I “waiting on” this book?

I’ve started reading romance novels again. I love the cover and the Cinderella story. It has a Gothic romance element too.

What are you “waiting on” reading?

    Ooh, I’ve never read an adult fairy tale retelling before, now that I think about it, so this sounds interesting.

  2. I love governess tales.

    Great pick!

    BTW, how’s it going with the new gig?

    Side note, did you change your header and I missed it or did I just get use to the fall/winter one?

  5. Like you, I kind of like the Gothic romance sound of this book! It reminds me of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. I do have to say that I’m not much of a romance reader…but I do like some of them! I just tend to be picky lol.

      The Jane Eyre feeling interested me too. I don’t like all romances but I do enjoy historicals. I’m a mood reader so I like to read a lot of different things.
