A governess must never be alone with a man. Her reputation mustn't have even a hint of scandal. She must never reveal personal emotions. No matter how strong the provocation by her employer. A governess never questions her employer's commands. Even when he's tempting her to forsake respectability for desire? She must never, ever, fall in love with someone above her station. Especially a rake—no matter how devastating his kisses may be . . . Alexandra Gallant is a governess extraordinaire—and if it weren't for that unfortunate incident at her last position, she wouldn't now be forced into the employ of Lucien Balfour, the most notorious rake in London.

And that will never happen. For although Lucien seems determined to teach her about pleasure, she has a few lessons to teach him about love!

Not only does this "governess/companion" come with her own cute little white terrier, but a secret reputation ...
I think I was being naive when I rated this book 3 stars before. Downgrading it now that I have "matured". lol Really stupid heroine, relationship built on sex, horny hero. Meh
unimpressive romance, I didn't like the characters. but writing is ok. 3 stars for the writing but it is nothing that I could recommend.
