From Governess to Countess by Marguerite Kaye @MargueriteKaye @MillsandBoon #Review

 ARC received from publisher & Netgalley

The scandalous truth…
She’s the Count’s new mistress!
In this Matches Made in Scandal story Count Aleksei Derevenko hires governess Allison Galbraith for her skills as a herbalist, not as a mistress! But when rumours spread Allison is shocked by her wanton reaction to Aleksei. His inscrutable icy blue eyes promise white-hot nights of sin! She knows too well how fragile her reputation is, but will the price of their passion be worth paying?

There is a brilliant chemistry between Aleksei and Allison that plays out perfectly throughout the story. I loved how Allison helps Aleksei as they try to uncover secrets within Russian society. The story moves steadily and I easily became invested in the characters and story. Allison was a strong character and held her own against Aleksei as they worked together to solve the mystery. I admired how Allison wanted her independence and to be treated as an equal something which she had tried so hard to achieve. 

I think with the story being set in Russia it gave it a little extra special something. There is enough detail to pull you into the story and enjoy every moment. From Governess to Countess has a few twists and turns along the way to keep things interesting and is sure to leave you with a smile. It didn't take me long to read and was a lovely way to spend an evening. 

Four stars from me!
