  • My review contains spoilers and they re mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookKaryn Gerrard s The Governess and the Beast had an interesting storyline and some pretty surprising twists that I hadn t imagine coming This is the second book of Blind Cupid series, which is based on the characters from a brothel of the same name Hortense is trying to become a proper governess She wants to change her past and start anew, and for that reason, she s now on her way to this distant countryside to work [...]

  • REVIEW by Ms Bill A brief but well written romance for grownups I really admired Karyn s ability to give us a great story line and believable, likeable, well developed characters in a mere 63 pages No long lost twin brother caught in the arms of a scullery maid no long lost scullery maid with her arms caught in a twin brother This is just all the good stuff of a historical romance minus the fluff and fillers True, Karyn has penned honest, clear descriptions of the physical needs and sexual activ [...]


  • Who would be the most deceived Simon Wolstenholme hires Miss Hortense Jennings to be governess of his 11 year old ward.However, when she arrives at his house for the interview, she discovers that the boy did not actually live in the house because he had been sent to the school, and that her contract was to make company the Baron himself.For her side, Hortense was not who she claimed to be.She was a former courtesan by real name Lila Jenner, who had not adapted to life in the brothel, had the opp [...]


  • I honestly read this because I though it would be like a loosely rendered erotic version of Jane Eyre While the hero shares some personality traits with Mr Rochester, the similarities end there It takes place a few decades later, and the so called governess is actually a former prostitute While the romance happens too quickly to be believable literally overnight , there is attention to historical detail and characterization The love scenes, which comprise most of the book, are as scintillating a [...]

  • Unlike Disney s version of The Beast, Baron Simon Wolstenholme was not cursed but injured and subsequently scarred while in service to his country Oh and he is not a furry beast He does however have a voracious sexual appetite that has been left unattended for the two years since his accident Even as a child his looks got him anything and everything that he wanted Now without those looks and locked away for two years of self induced seclusion and regret he has come to the conclusion that he need [...]


  • Reviewed by MollyBook provided by the publisher for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookI will admit that I don t listen to many audiobooks but I also admit that when I do, I love them And, Ms Gerrard s book is no different I loved it From start to finish, the narrator did a fabulous job with reading this short story She did a wonderful job at expressing emotion when it was needed, switching between the male and female characters.This audiobook is the perfect length for a read in [...]


  • alittleturtlesworld 2014 1Snuff novella The reader is a good one with the breathy tones expected of this kind of story even theslight accent to assist It certainly has its hot parts it is labeled as BDSM erotica however and this is amisnomer there is no dominance and submission in any real way, there isn t even any real playtime other than a lot of sex even a bit of kinky sex.Would I recommend this story Well, the characters are decent the setting skimmed over but filled outcould be nice overall [...]


  • This started with a very Jane Eyre feel governess heading to decrepit and isolated manor house, brooding lord of the manor sort of thing Very quickly, Gerrard managed to pull us out of that rather somber tale and move the story into one fraught with insecurities, doubt and secrets Lili and Simon are crafted with such deliberate care and emotional veracity that they, and not their circumstances or actions are the highlight of this story Packing all of that characterization and emotional impact in [...]


  • If you are looking for a very steamy fast paced romance Karyn Gerrard s The Governess and the Beast is the short story to read.Baron Simon Wolstenholme is a beautiful man that was scarred from his time in the war He has retired to his home where he never leaves HIs scares are not just physical but emotional He is lonely and craves companionship on all levels He hires a man to look into the history and life of Hortense Jennings A woman he feels can fulfill the role of companion When Hortense arri [...]


  • The Governess and the Beast is the second installment in the Blind Cupid series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone It tells the story of a man scarred by war, not only outside but inside as well Apparently everything had been given to him in a silver plate up until the terrible accident that caused his disfigurement and after that he felt he had lost all that he was The, ahem, governess had scars of her own When they meet, she was escaping from a torrid past and hoping to start a new [...]


  • This book is nothing at all like the Disney version This book is fun and exciting and it is on the dark side The Beast of Stonecliff who is Baron Simon Wolfstenholme was in the war and had a cannon blow up next to him He ended up scarring his left side That is why he is called the beast He has had no sex for two years and the six months that he has been secluded in his dark castle is starting to get to him He puts an ad out for a tutor for his ward but really he is wanting a companion Hortense J [...]


  • The Governess and the Beast Written by Karyn Gerrard Blind Cupid 2 Karyn Gerrard has done it again This author has packed a sensual erotic story into a novella as only she is able to do.Lila Jenner a former prostitute is trying to begin a new life using false references and a new identity She has taken on a position as a governess for Baron Simon Wolstenholme also known as the Beast of Stonecliff As she travels to her new beginning, in a crumbling manor, she is unaware the Baron does know her tr [...]


  • I hardly ever read short novellas but I am a sucker for a scarred and tortured hero romance, so I decided to give this one a try It was awesome I loved everything about ite backstory, the connection between the characters and the explicit sexcapades all culminated in a very entertaining story Surprisingly, I got quite emotionally involved in this short tale No doubt I will be reading from this author.


  • Some scars are easier to see than others But when Hortense is brought to Baron Wolstenholm s castle under false presenses, she s accepts it as she has any other event in her life What follows is a steamy encounter with the Baron, that neither of them are likely to forget.Like most short stories, I always feel that there could have been so much This one is no exception Though it is great on its own, I can t help but wish it was the first chapter of a brilliant and captivating novel.


  • Great erotic historical with a little bondage The scarred hero, stonecliff, was wonderful He proposes one night of passion to the governess he just hired and both found than they expected Great novella read
