The Governess Game RECOMMENDED: The Governess Game by Tessa Dare is $3.99! This is the second book in the Girl Meets Duke series. Elyse gave this one a perfect grade, an A: It’s one of the best, if not the best, book I’ve read this year and it was worth all the hours I spent reading that should have been spent sleeping. He’s been a bad, bad rake—and it takes a governess to teach him a lesson The accidental governess After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies.

B+ The Lord I Left by Scarlett Peckham January 27, 2020 · NYLA Romance After reading a slew of perfectly adequate but largely forgettable romances lately, reading The Lord I Left was a nice, trope-tastic surprise. Granted, I’d sign up for pretty much any story featuring a snowy road trip, but I got a lot more than that by the end of this book.

Alice Hull, one of the house’s employees, interrupts them to tell her boss she needs to head home as soon as possible because she just got a letter saying her mother is at death’s door. Henry, coincidentally going the same way, offers her a ride. Alice is put off by Henry, but she accepts the offer since it’d be a lot faster than traveling by the mail coach. It’s winter, and they set off on a borrowed curricle on a journey supposed to take only a few short days. Henry…

If you’re new to Hide Your Wallet, this is where we list new releases we’re pretty excited for in the coming month. Each reviewer has a book maximum (five per person), but we’ve separated HYW into two parts. The first HYW of the month will cover books that release from the 1st to the 14th. The second HYW will cover books released from the 15th to the end of the month. We also think this will help us feature books from smaller publishers who don’t have buy links up as quickly as the big five. As always, if we missed any books that you’re particularly looking forward to, tell us all about them in the comments. My Date with a Wendigo Author: Genevieve McCluer Released: March 10, 2020 by Bold Strokes Books Genre: LGBTQIA, Paranormal, Romance Elizabeth Rosseau and Abigail Lester were best friends.
