The Governess’ Debut (novella)


The governess must charm both the spoiled child and the haughty earl.

Orphaned and destitute, gently born Felicia Scott no longer has a dowry to offer. Her only option is to find a position as governess. Felicia adores young Lady Penelope and is more than intrigued by the handsome, though surly, earl. Of course, her new employer is strictly off-limits. No matter, he sees her as nothing more than a companion for his daughter.

The Earl of Standish is desperate. His spoiled, seven-year-old daughter has already sent off three governesses. He reluctantly agrees to give the young Miss Scott a chance, convinced he’ll be searching again soon.

When this gently bred young woman works wonders on his daughter, Standish is pleasantly surprised. The only problem? He never expected the interesting new governess to capture his attention as well. He should be looking for a well-suited woman for another marriage like his first—convenient and proper with no messy feelings.

Felicia’s fear of poverty keeps her silent about her feelings. The earl clings to propriety for propriety’s sake, despite their growing attachment.

The Governess’s Debut is a clean Regency romance novella with a heartwarming story and a charming happily ever after.

I’ve been writing pretty much since I learned to read when I was five years old. Of course, those early efforts were basically only something a mother could love :-) I put writing aside after I left school and stuck with reading. I am an avid reader. I love words. I will read anything, even the cereal box, signs, posters, etc. But my true love is novels.

Almost ten years ago my husband dared me to write a book instead of always reading them. I didn’t think I’d be able to do it, but to my surprise I love writing. Those early efforts eventually became my first published book – Tempting the Earl (published by Avalon books in 2010). There were some ups and downs in my publishing efforts. My first publisher was sold and I became an “orphan” author, back to the drawing board of trying to find a publishing house. It has been a thrilling adventure as I learned to navigate the world of publishing.

I believe firmly that everyone deserves a happily ever after. I want my readers to be able to escape from the everyday for a little while and feel upbeat and refreshed when they get to the end of my books.

When not reading or writing, I can be found traipsing around my neighborhood admiring the dogs and greenery or travelling the world with my favorite companion.
