‘An Affair to Remember’ by Karen Hawkins

aatr khSTORY: Saddled with five unruly orphans, the Earl of Greyley, Anthony Elliot, is at his wits’ end. Unfortunately, the only person willing to deal with the adorable little terrors is Anna Thraxton, governess “extraordinaire” — and the one woman Anthony can’t abide. She’s too outspoken, too opinionated, and far too beautiful for his peace of mind. A woman should be meek and mild — words that perfectly describe his prospective bride, not the flame-haired temptress who haunts his dreams.

Anna knew this job would be trouble the moment she set foot in the door — but it’s Anthony who’s the problem, not the children! He’s too arrogant, too sure of himself, and far, far too wonderfully big and masculine. The young girl he’s courting will never be able to handle him, so someone clearly needs to teach Anthony a few things about women. But when lectures turn to kisses, igniting a passion they can’t ignore, how will they resolve the battle between honour and their hearts.

REVIEW: I love Karen Hawkins books. She is a great author and her books are always an enjoyable read. “An Affair to Remember” was just one of those books.

Our heroine, Anna, is a very special governess in high demand. She is able to work with difficult children with great results. Lord Greyley, a bachelor, has just become guardian to five children all of whom are considered to be holy-terrors.

They have run off many governesses due to their horrid behavior. Enter Anna! She quickly wins the children’s hearts with her kindness, humor, imagination and fun outlook on life. Lord Greyley and Anna find themselves attracted to one another but Anna is determined that she will not be someone’s mistress.

Lord Greyley is betrothed to another. Have I tempted you enough? This is a delicious read with a strong heroine and equally strong hero. Do pick up a copy of this book and find out who “wins.”

I'm married, working, and have grown and independent kids. I love gardening, reading and painting. My favorite TV show is Dancing With the Stars! Television shows have gone to the crap house. My favorite movie of all time is "Last of the Mohicans" with Daniel Day Lewis. Second best is "Titanic" and third "Passion of the Christ". I am an avid reader and I love talking about the books I’ve read, especially romance novels. I will warn you though: I am prone to rants and raves about a lot of things!
