    This was a delightful story! I wasn’t sure if I would warm to the Earl’s daughter, Lady Miranda. She had been allowed to become very snooty and was quite the handful. But her new governess, Rosemary, seemed to know just what activities would help Miranda to stay focused, while also encouraging a love of learning. It was so enjoyable to see Rosemary and Drake’s relationship grow from employer and employee, to respectful friends who admired each other, to finally an undeniable and strong love.

Drake, Miranda, and Rosemary made a great team in this novel. The Governess’s Earl is the fourth book in the Grace-by-the-Sea series and I believe that it will be most easily enjoyed if the books are read in order. There are many recurring characters and a subplot that carries through from book to book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    GOD! I wish I could add a couple more stars.🌟🌟🌟 Its lovely. I have loved all the others from this series, but this by far takes the cake. This series has always portrayed strong go getting women, and this one follows true . The Earl's instant acceptance of Rosemary's intelligence and knowledge is commendable. The crowning glory is the inclusion of such studies for his 9 yr daughter. Though Rosemary is a great heroine, intelligent and resourceful, its Drake. the Earl of Howland who truly shines. GOD!

What a guy! And his opening speech at the assemby is a perfect example of his humility, sincerity and respect for women. He comes through for Rosemary everytime.👏. Miranda, his 9 yr daughter is delightful. Initially, she was a spoilt brat, she redeems herself immediately. I liked how the Earl wanted to enhance that and not suppres it as was generally the case in those days . Recommended: 👍 👌 👏

What a wonderful story to start the year with! Having loved the previous books in the Grace-by-the-Sea series, I am so glad it's not over yet! The people of this lovely English village have captured my attention - and my heart. They are troubled by the mere 40 miles that separate them from the enemies who live across the Channel in France. Each story builds the anticipation regarding the issues with the French agents, making me eager to read more and more and more. Combining wit, adventure, and romance, author Regina Scott has written another winner. I found myself giggling at Rosemary's repartee. The manner in which she took over her interview with Drake, the Earl, for becoming his governess was so clever! Even more fun was having him later quoting her from that interview. I also loved how Rosemary handled the feisty Lady Miranda, Drake's daughter, and her boundless energy. Ms. Scott has a knack for taking a humorous situation and drawing it out just the right amount. Such as with Drake's footman-turned-valet's "skills" with his wardrobe. And, of course, Maudie with her mermaids and trolls. Not all is fun and games in Grace-by-the-Sea, however. Drake's mother, the Countess, is not happy with the way Rosemary is handling Lady Miranda's education. Or with Drake's growing attraction for Rosemary. French spies are still suspected of infiltrating this sleepy village. And there is that matter of those pesky finances plaguing the Earl's estate. The surprising discovery in the cliffs was fascinating, as was the wealth of knowledge Rosemary imparted to Miranda (and Drake). Her experience working with her uncle gave her insight into many things considered unusual for a woman at that time to know. Full of everything that makes for an enjoyable story, The Governess' Earl is a must-read for those who love historical fiction. Originally Reviewed on Among The Reads I was given a copy of this book. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.

    This is the fourth book in the Grace-by-the-Sea series. This is definitely a series that is better if you read them in order because they build on each other though you can read them separately if you would like. Regina Scott does an excellent job of drawing you into the story from the very beginning and if you have read the previous books in the series then you are already looking forward to finding out about some things that are left unfinished from those novels.

She also draws you in with the personalities of all her characters but especially the women because they are so head strong and independent that you just can’t help but like them. I have to say that if you do choose to read this book as a stand-alone then you will be missing out so much on the story because you will spend some time trying to understand what is going on.

    In this installment of her latest Regency series, we get a glimpse into the life of a duke forced to live in a different way, a dislocated Countess, and a young woman who needs a mother who will value her for who she is.

Rosemary can help each of them, but she needs a job. Together, they heal old wounds and look to new beginnings. Scott’s books always entertain, and I learn something new with each. In this one, we learn more about archeology during the Regency era, the methodology, and what happened with the discovery. I really enjoyed how it was part of the larger story and gave added interest and texture, but never overtook the romance. This particular book gives the reader a glimpse into the difficulties women experienced during the Regency, especially the conflict between roles deemed proper for women and their own desires for their lives. The tension between intelligence and what was considered ladylike behavior, even for a child who is a duke’s daughter, seems silly by our own standards but we still see remnants of these thoughts on TV and in advertising today. I enjoyed that this novel looked not only at women, but at the expectations placed on all people, something we still struggle with today; each person has privileges, but we too often assume that is all that accompanies their status. For example, Drake could ask questions, even be rude, and no one would think anything of it, but he also had responsibilities toward his tenants, his family, and even his country that many others would not care to bear, even for the title. While this is the fourth book in the Grace-by-the-Sea series, it reads easily as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading all the books. There is a larger mystery thread that runs through the series, and I love how the main characters from previous books become secondary characters in others, allowing us to check in with them later. Fans of Regency historicals will enjoy this novel, as will those who have an interest in England, or even in archeology. I highly recommend it! I received a review copy of this book from the author but was under no obligation to post a positive review. The opinions expressed are both honest and my own.

    This is a book that was difficult to put down. You get drawn up in the lives of Rosemary Denby and Drake, the Earl of Howland. You also have Miranda, the Earl’s daughter and his mother. In my experience, I learned to really not like the mother. She was very demanding. And Miranda and to be kept busy. So Drake was taken aback that Rosemary had a gift with Miranda. Miranda would listen to her. But the book wouldn’t be as good if there hadn’t be some mystery involved here. Have the French come back This is a book that was difficult to put down.

But the book wouldn’t be as good if there hadn’t be some mystery involved here. Have the French come back? How would they defend themselves? What about the women? And as if this wasn’t enough, will feeling develop between the Earl and the Governess? Well, I won’t tell. You will have to read the book to find these answers out. Good job Regina! The Governess’s Earl became available January 25, 2021. I received a complimentary copy of the ebook from the author for my honest review.

    I love a good Regency and Regina Scott does one well. Her Grace-By-The-Sea series is very interesting! I have grown so fond of the inhabitants of this little village. This fourth book in the series finds the penniless Earl of Howland now installed in his family’s castle in the vicinity of the village. He hires Rosemary Denby as governess to his precocious daughter Miranda and soon finds himself drawn to her. There is also adventure here as the inhabitants are on the look out for French invaders I love a good Regency and Regina Scott does one well. Her Grace-By-The-Sea series is very interesting!

A young girl that she could teach that the world was hers to do anything she wanted. Even teaching her how to hunt for fossils as her uncle had done for her. She didn’t expect the earl to be such a wonderful man. Excellent series with heartwarming secondary characters. Maudie Tully and her tales of mermaids and trolls always brings a smile to my face. The unique spa guests and those whose stories have already been told. A series worth taking the time to read from book one. https://justjudysjumbles.blogspot.com...

    This book is an excellent example of why Regina Scott is one of my favorite authors. The Governess’s Earl is Book 4 in the Grace-By-The-Sea Series. I like the clear sense of place.

Characters from previous books in the series make a neighborly appearances. The main characters are Rosemary Denby and Drake, the new Earl of Howland. I like Rosemary Denby, like her counterparts in Grace-By-The-Sea, she is a competent young woman who knows her own mind and intends to use it. We saw Drake before in his cousin’s, the magistrate’s, book The Heiress’s Convenient Husband. I wasn’t sure I was going to like him much, but it turns out he is a kind man. His kindness is the cause of some of the more light-hearted moments of the book. The Governess’s Earl is worth the price. I’ve already pre-ordered Book 5!

    Clean romance A great continuation of a little community and its delightful characters. This is the fourth book of the series but can be read as a stand alone. Although to be honest, I find the characters and plot all the richer for reading them in order. I find it gives a depth to the whole series. The Grace-by-the-sea series holds the reader’s attention with the plot and subplot mystery...and of course romance! The characters are well developed and are very believable.
