By: Ellie MacDonald
Releasing September 2nd, 2014 and October 7th, 2014
Avon Impulse

Blurb (Sara)

Sweet Sara Collins is one of
the founding members of the governess club. But she has a secret… She doesn’t
love teaching. She’d much prefer to be a vicar’s wife and help the local
community. But this quiet mouse doesn’t want to upset her friends, and she
resolves to help in whatever ways she can.
Nathan Grant is the
embodiment of everything that frightens Sara. Which is why she can’t understand
why the handsome but reclusive and gruff man is so fascinating to her. When
Sara decides it’s time to take a chance and experience all that life has to
offer, Nathan is the first person she thinks of.
Will Sara’s walk on the wild
side ruin her chances at a simple, happy life? Or has she just opened the door
to a once-in-a-lifetime chance of passion?

Blurb (Louisa)

Louisa Brockhurst is on the
run – from her friends, from her family, even from her dream of independence
through The Governess Club. But sometimes it’s easier for her to hide from
those she loves in order to escape the secrets of her past.
Handsome but menacing John
Taylor is a former prize-fighter turned inn-keeper who is trying to make his
way in society. When Louisa shows up at his doorstep he’s quick to accept her
offer to help – at a price. He knows that she’s hiding something and he can’t
help his protective instincts around the beautiful woman.
Their attraction grows, but
will headstrong, fiery Louisa ever trust the surprisingly kind John enough to
tell him the dangerous secrets from her past that keep her running? Or will the
power of her feelings scare her into running yet again?

Thank you first of all to Avon and Tasty Book Tours for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you these reviews.


I really enjoyed this series. Ellie did a great job at keeping the reactions and culture of the time period correctly.

Though Sara is a quiet character it is nice to see how Nathan brings her “voice” out of her. She had in my opinion been brain washed by her mother in the past and it was nice to see her break out of it.

Though Nathan is a big of a rough character to like at first, once you know why he is that way it makes it easier to understand. He does have a great heart and lots of love and tenderness underneath it all.

I loved being able to read the Louisa’s book afterward because I will warn you this book leaves you in a bit of a cliffhanger.

Happy Reading… Adri


I really enjoyed this series. Ellie did a great job at keeping the reactions and culture of the time period correctly.

John is such a lovable character and I could see his caring heart as well as his love for Louisa clearly. Louisa is a strong character that at times could be a bit stubborn.

They make this story flow quickly and easily. It really was no effort reading this story.

I am sad to see this series end.

Happy Reading… Adri
