The Governess Affair by Courtney Milan

A short historical romance novella that moves along at a very snappy pace with a plot less straightforward than the title implies. The romance felt a bit rushed, very “love at first sight”, and the male protagonist was a little too good to be true.

I love historical fiction, but I haven’t read much romance and don’t understand the conventions of the genre. Perhaps this book fits into a specific sub-genre thus written perfectly to fit a category? Personally, I’d have liked a bit more character development and more historical bits, but it was a fun enough read. Unsure whether I’ll read the rest of the series however. ★★★☆☆
