Detailed Review Summary of My Fair Temptress by Christina Dodd

After years of menial jobs, Caroline applies to Adorna Bucknell’s Distinguished Academy of Governesses for a position. Jude also is a very kind and compassionate man which chrisgina surprising for this time period. Last but not least the woman, Caroline, has been compromised and then became a social outcast, ok that part is believable but the fact that she who has been scandalized becomes a distinguished governess for her ability to flirt takes things a bit far.

My Fair Temptress Book Summary and Study Guide

The two characters were exceptional at what they did, their lines and exchanges were very smart and fun, but I did find the whole flirt-with-my-son thing sort of ridiculous and the romance progressed a tad fast in several places. That was the damning part of the tale Adorna had heard. It started out very slow and I didn’t care for any of the characters.

She used her large brown eyes to flirt and admire, and never did she allow them to temptresss her intelligence. Mass Market paper Upcoming! The Duke of Seduction. The Highlander’s Princess Bride.
