The children she can manage with intelligence, guile . . . and a little bribery. Their widowed father, Colonel William Gregory, is not so easily charmed — and far too easy to fall in love with, which she dares not do.

William always cherished the orderliness of his life, until this captivating troublemaker began flouting his authority and distracting him with her witty defiance and breathtaking beauty. Despite the fact that they clash at every meeting, William finds himself inexplicably drawn to Samantha’s fire. And now he’s even contemplating marriage, which would be sweet madness indeed.

But before he can successfully woo her, William must discover what it is that Samantha is hiding from him. But the secret the lady is preciously guarding is far too shocking and dangerous to ever reveal.

REVIEW: Admittedly, I was in the mood for a “governess book” and “My Favorite Bride” certainly did not disappoint.

Samantha, a former and reformed pickpocket, is sent from the Academy of Governesses to care for six little girls. As there had been many predecessors before her, she found she would have a big job in handling these mischievous children.

Their father, a widowed Colonel wanted his life and his children to be well-ordered. The antics of the children; attraction between Samantha and the Colonel; and a dangerous mission in which they become involved all knit together for a delightful read sprinkled with bits of humor.

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!
