The Game and the Governess: Winner Takes All 1

The Game and the Governess: Winner Takes All 1

From Kate Noble, part of the sensational writing team behind The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, comes the first in a sparkling and witty new historical romance series that’s part Trading Places, part Pride and Prejudice. Perfect for fans of Julia Quinn, Stephanie Laurens and Tessa Dare.

As the Earl of Ashby, Lord Edward Granville has never been in short supply of luck. Making a wager that he can have any woman he desires even without his title, ‘Lucky Ned’ switches places with John Turner, his friend and secretary. But once he does, Ned’s luck suddenly abandons him, for the ladies now have eyes only for Turner.

Governess Phoebe Baker wants nothing more than to keep her head down, teach her students, and go unnoticed – especially by the Earl of Ashby. But his rakish secretary has the infuriating habit of constantly crossing her path – and making her pulse quicken. If this prim-and-proper governess lets her heart rule, will fate intervene where Ned’s luck has forsaken him?

For more passionate historical romance to sweep you away, don’t miss the next Winner Takes All book, The Lie and the Lady.
