The Baron's Governess Bride by Deborah Hale

My book today is on the Love Inspired Historical Book, The Baron's Governess Bride, it's  part of the Glass Slipper Bride Series. It's a cute story of deception. I enjoyed it. I liked the characters although I think the Baron was to easily manipulated at times, especially by his daughters. A problem some parents seem to have. A friend of mine once told me she thought we had too much on our minds while our children only had one thing on theirs, how to get us to do what they wanted. I think that is probably true.

Lord Rupert Steadwell has three motherless daughters. The children are heartbroken because their governess has run off and got married. Rupert decides the next governess he hires must be uninterested in marriage, so when he has an interview with a plain, prim, and proper young miss, he thinks he has found the perfect replacement. Can't the woman even smile? 

Grace Elberly is the beautiful daughter of a clergyman. At his death her stepmother sends her to a school for orphaned girls. There she is punished for being beautiful and full of pride. As she starts on her career as a governess she begins to have problems with the friends and relatives of the parents of her charges. The improper advances cause her to leave her positions and have caused her dip into her savings. To protect herself she has come up with a plan to disguise herself so that no man will want her.
This works out well for her at the Steadwell's home. Although the children have a hard time accepting her at first.

Rupert has found his perfect governess so now he must move on to his next item of importance, finding a suitable wife so that he might have and heir. The governess and the children are very anxious about the woman he is courting. In an attempt to stop his proposal, Grace goes to the Masked Ball in a beautiful gown from one of his ancestors. One enchanted evening changes everything but soon backfires on them.

It's a  cute story of Cinderella, although she didn't lose her slipper. You need to get a copy. God bless you all, have a great weekend.
