I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Catherine Tinley’s latest novel: The Earl’s Runaway Governess.

The Earl’s Runaway Governess was a delicious feast for the heart and soul.  I adored it and feel quite bereft now I’ve got to the end.

There’s currently a number of Regency Romance novelists who know just how to transport their readers into an era that is steeped with etiquette with society rules and regulations, scandalous rakes and dashingly handsome rogues and Catherine Tinley is one of these such authors who sets the scene and captures your heart with the characters and storyline.

I particularly liked this storyline of a young lady having no option but to flee her family home for fear of her own safety.  Marianne Grant’s life as she knew it for the last twenty years surrounded by love and comfortable wealth will be no more.  Still struggling with grief Marianne has to be strong and make a new life for herself.  A life on the other side of the social class, one were she has to be independent, work for a living and above all else hide her true identity otherwise the consequence could be devastating.

Securing a position of a governess for a recently widowed Lady and her twelve year old daughter Marianne, now Miss Bolton, has switched roles in a stately home.  However, keeping her alias secret proves difficult when she meets the new Earl of Kingswood and proprietor of the house.  Earl ‘Ash’ Kingswood has been bequeathed the home and estate and is at a loss how to run a vast estate like this, he’s also not sure how to run a home and cope with the emotional dramas from the women of the household.  Personalities soon clash between Marianne and the new Earl and the author has woven some great fun between these two characters as they learn to live with their new roles.

Catherine Tinley has packed so much into this story; we had a daring escape, a new beginning, new friendships, new hope but danger of the past rearing it’s ugly head was never far and Marianne felt the constant fear for her life.

A story that enthralled me, I was charmed by the characters and the strength in a young woman trying to overcome adversity.  The chivalry and romance that blossomed was befitting to the story and left me wanting more.
