Historical fiction, is it for me? 

A Regency Romance

As historical fiction goes it is not something i would usually lean towards. The time periods and generally the cover design of a book i wouldn’t have looked at it twice (I know never judge a book by its cover, RIGHT?!) I have read historical fantasy before and enjoyed that. Romance i normally read is either rom-com or contemporary. Having won a giveaway i received The Earl’s Runaway Governess as my prize. I actually enjoyed it and would read something similar again. Here is my review.

The Earl's Runaway Governess (Mills & Boon Historical)
The Earl’s Runaway Governess by Catherine Tinley My rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a genre i would normal read. But i do like a bit of romance and historical fiction. Marianne is born to wealth and is a Lady by all accounts, but after losing her parents in a tragic accident her step brother Henry inherits the estate. As is the law in these times. However Henry is not a nice Gentleman and Marianne is forced to flee for her own safety. Starting again as someone new and as a Governess this is although she has experience from having her own Governess she is not comfortable with the lie she is having to live. Her new position is helped by the fact that the New Earl has inherited Ledbury house through his cousins early death and of which he has no experience in such matters. This although primarily a Regency Romance had a lot more depth to it. Marianne pushes the boundaries of the normal standings in society in this period of time, she is respected by certain men and her quick mind and opinions are valued. For a lady in society at this time it wasn’t expected or socially acceptable. I enjoyed it.
