This book has a great plot: a handsome rake falls in love with a plain spinster. However, the book had too many issues for me to enjoy fully.
Lady Langlow needs a plain, on the shelf governess for her children. Her brother-in-law has made it a habit of seducing the prior governesses. She hires Miss Celestine Simons who is plain, on the shelf and suffering from arthritis. Lord St.Clair Richmond is a rake and very full of himself. He sets off to seduce poor Celestine.
As the story progresses, St. Claire's character changes from an utter ass to a hero I liked.
I give it four out of five stars.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
