Reviewer: msbooklady "msbooklady" (Biloxi, MS) -
This book was a little different from the typical Regency Romance. For one the hero is not a womanizing rogue and the heroine is a ruined woman forced to work for a living.

Beautiful Caroline is compromised and ruined as a young debutant by a married member of the nobility. He wanted a divorce from his wife and drugged Caroline and lured her into the library where they were discovered. Caroline is ruined and blamed for the incident and her father throws her out. She attempts to find work but keeps getting fired because frankly all she is good at is flirting. She is given a break when The Academy of Governess gives her a job doing just that, teaching someone to flirt. Caroline is hired by a duke to teach his son the foppish Jude how to flirt and catch a wife.

Jude is really undercover trying to catch his brother's murderers. He must act like a sissy trying to imitate the French. He wears outlandish colors-(orange shirt, with a yellow cravat and striped pants following around his two suspects who are French. He is intrigued by the young lady his father hires to teach him to flirt, but must concentrate on catching his brothers murderers. However, he cannot stop his longing for Caroline. Caroline is amused at Jude's antics but is determined to find him a wife. If she is successful she will earn enough to get her sister away from their tyrannt father. However, she falls for Jude in spite of his actions.

This is a decent story and the descriptions of Jude's clothes are sometimes hilarious. However, I couldn't help wonder why Caroline could never figure out Jude was acting. Still pretty good.

Books that make me chuckle are always favorites of mine and this one certainly did. Dodd can write some witty dialogue and it's especially wonderful to find it in a regency romance. The idea of an Academy of Governesses that have personnel available to teach a man the art of flirting is an amusing concept. This book does not disappoint.

In this delicious addition to the Distinguished Academy of Governesses series, Lady Caroline Ritter, desperate for employment, comes to the academy for help. The problem: Her only achievement is that she's an accomplished flirt. But fortune shines on Caroline when she's sent to teach Jude Durant what a woman wants.

After years of working secretly for the government, Jude returns home from France mourning his brother's death. Though he appears foppish, he's working undercover to expose a plot to assassinate Queen Victoria. He has no need to be tutored in the art of love, but to keep up his charade, he accepts the lessons.

Caroline is not what Jude expects. She's beautiful, but she's also smart and the ideal pawn for his mission. Neither one counts on falling in love.
