The Governess Game by Tessa Dare (Girl Meets Duke #2) Review | Another Historical Romance Hit!

Site Logo

I realize I may not be as captivating as a shuttlecock or a decanter of brandy, but I am your wife. The woman who is to be the mother of your child. She might not win this silly game, but she was determined to triumph eventually. The battle began here and now. I was merely lobbing you the shuttlecock. Thank you, darling. This time, he was the one to stand still in the center of the court. To her surprise, Emma managed to scramble under the falling missile and return it.

Another effortless return on his part; another ungainly, desperate swipe on hers. This time, she missed. I can have you sent to an institution for the feebleminded and insane. He leveled his racquet at her. You seem to be plotting a campaign of kindness. No doubt with the aim of soothing my tortured soul. It would be a waste of time. My temperament was not created by injury; it will not be magically healed by sweetness or pet names.

Am I making myself clear? Do not harbor any illusions that my scars transformed me into a jaded, ill-tempered wretch. I was always—and shall remain—a jaded, ill-tempered wretch. No matter. She was enjoying this game anyway. No one calls me anything else. Being the only one who addresses you differently is rather the point. He sent a serve back toward her. Emma noticed a hitch in his swing.

He winced ever so slightly. Perhaps the reason behind the thrice-weekly sport was not mere boredom, but restoring the use of an injured arm. If so, his wounds must extend beyond his visible scars. Too much wondering. Instead, it traveled down to her chest and tightened there. She could hold her side of a respectable volley.

In response to that, he hit the shuttlecock so hard, it sailed all the way to the back wall and thwacked one of his ancestors right in the powdered wig. Ignoring his outburst, Emma retrieved the shuttlecock. She served, barely managing to scrape it over the net. Begging for work. Stitching my fingers to nubs. Her swing sent it rocketing upward, almost to the ceiling. He stood beneath the bundle of cork and feathers, waiting on it to swirl back to earth.

I spent months near death. The scars left me a living monster. I quit opium by sheer force of will. My intended bride turned from me in revulsion. Emma felt chastened, and a bit ashamed. People she held dear had turned from her, too. Vain and shallow as Annabelle Worthing might be, her rejection had heaped insult atop injury. The broken engagement must have deeply wounded his pride, if not his heart.

Your volley is passable, but your serve is a disaster. Casting his own racquet aside, he plucked the shuttlecock from the floor and came to stand behind her, closing his right hand over hers where she gripped the racquet, and reaching around her with the other arm to position the shuttlecock. All at once, the ballroom became a glasshouse—one filled with a steamy, intimate heat that amplified every sound, every scent. Sweat beaded at the nape of her neck, and she was deeply conscious of each wisp and strand of her hair that had tumbled free.

Mostly, though, she was aware of him. The wall of his chest against her back, and the strength of his arms around her. The soap and sandalwood scent she was coming to recognize. She stared at his hand. Last night, in the dark, those sure, confident fingers. A small vibration of joy went through her.

Now here he was again, right up against her, teetering on the edge of lust. Create a free website or blog at WordPress. Total 58 Pages: Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 Next.

I came to offer my services as a timekeeper. And vacated. And filled and vacated several times over. Sometimes multiple times in one day. She thought him a crude, unintelligent layabout. A paltry excuse for nobility and a waste of good tailoring. Miss Mountbatten—quite wisely—wanted nothing to do with him.
