    1. I m pretty sure this was my favorite of the series and deserves a pleased 4 star rating Jane and Nicholas are so entertaining because while they know they need to hold the society s rules as Jane is unmarried and a governess which means traveling unaccompanied with a man can ruin her career Having said that, both have something to gain from working together and it turns out it is much than keeping a position or getting a horse back Nicholas and Jane find in each other things they didn t expect [...]


    2. This is the best of the three in this series Even though it is the last one, it is basically a standalone read, as hero and heroine are alone and on the road for much of the book.In the first two instalments of this series I struggled with all the mental lusting and sex thoughts at inappropriate times, and I was glad that wasn t the case with this one I also thought there were some interesting little research touches, as the characters travel across England and stop in real places.This is a shor [...]


    3. I would like to thank Julia Kelly, PocketStar Books, and Simon Schuster, Inc for allowing me to read this novel in exchange for an honest review.When Jane Ephram realizes her charge flew the coop, she knows she has to get the young lady back before the situation is discovered and both their reputations and therefore their lives are ruined But where to start her search Perhaps by interviewing the gentleman whose horse had been stolen during the night That horse was the key to a better future for [...]

    10. Short but delightful I have a few things perhaps that bothered me One was the sex too quickly with no thought of ruination Another was the swearing in front of ladies The last bother was the title mix of baron versus knight and how to address that All in all it is a quick and interesting read one that I would pick up for a short trip and enjoy it all the I can say this was a delightful difference from the others I was given this book in return for an honest review Anna Swedenmom


    11. This was a nice end to the Governess series by Julia Kelly I found Jane and Nicholas to be likable characters and the road trip element to their romance made a for a pleasant change from typical regency romances Nicholas is a down on his luck Baron who has inherited a non profitable estates from his late father and two sisters who need to make a splash and marry well Jane is a pragmatic governess with a high spirited run away charge When Jane s charge Lady Margaret steals Nicholas horse Moonligh [...]


    12. This landed on my DNF I did not like the characters and couldn t get into the novel There were three in the series that were published very close to another It just seemed pushed to meet a deadline.I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy provided by the publisher and NetGalley.


    13. This was a fun story to wrap up the trilogy The road trip aspect kept the plot moving and the romance was convincing.


    14. This was definitely the weakest of the series, and I was disappointed by the lack of an epilogue since it s the last in the series.


    15. In the third and final story of the Governess series, an unexpected adventure occurs in the life of a woman who has always followed the rules of society Though concern over the future has always controlled the actions of this rather timid governess, she finds herself wanting to grasp the fervent passion that is within reach if she just takes a chance Julia Kelly makes every scene delightfully engaging with a very likable couple along with an enchanting storyline THE GOVERNESS WAS WILD is enjoyab [...]


    16. The Governess Was Wild is the third book in the Governess Series by Julia Kelly I have read the other books in the series and they are all wonderful, but I think so far I love this book the best.This is the story of Jane Ephram She is one of three Governesses and life long friends, but the only one left of the three that hasn t found love or marriage yet Presently she is the Governess of a very determined, spoiled young woman, Margaret She wants to marry a man totally unsuitable for her, and whe [...]


    17. 3.5 stars.This third Victorian governess romance is a fun, light, romp of a read that works best if you re not too concerned with period detail but like the feel of a historical period Jane is a determined woman, proper when necessary and fierce when required, while Nicholas is sometimes grumpy but mostly happy to go along with what Jane tells him It s a road trip book and is nicely enjoyable.Up to a point Incorrect usage of titles are a pet peeve of mine, and here we have Sir Nicholas Hollings, [...]

    19. The Governess Was Wild is a light hearted, charming historical perfect for anyone who likes road trip romances The crux of the story is that hero and heroine go in pursuit of an heiress to keep her from running away from her governess with the hero s stolen horse It s the third book of the Governess series and while characters from the previous books do appear, I haven t read either of them I think it stands alone just fine.Nicholas Hollings is an impoverished aristocrat through no fault of of h [...]


    20. Jane Ephram is one of three Governesses and lifelong friends and the only one who hasn t found love or marriage yet She has been ordered to take her charge Lady Margaret the daughter of the Earl of Rawson to the family s estate in Yorkshire because she was getting ready to elope with a scoundrel One night Lady Margret has stolen a horse and disappeared Jane knows what she s up to and needs to stop Lady Margret from getting to Gretna Green and marry The horse she has stolen belongs to Nicholas a [...]

    22. This was my first experience with reading anything by Julia Kelly and I enjoyed it She is not the most eloquent and descriptive writer, but she told a nice story This is a very short, quick read, so I didn t expect a great amount of detail However, the characters governess Jane Ephram and Sir Nicholas Hollings were fairly well fleshed out for the amount of time we have with them The love story is sweet and their journey into looking for Jane s wayward charge Lady Margaret Rawson is long and tiri [...]


    23.

    24. Knights in shining armor do exist and one is called Nicholas Hollings Jane, the last standing governess, is definitely the introvert of the group but she has so much passion not only for her position but for wanting to live life Jane and Nicholas journey to romance is sigh worthy and a bit sexy You cannot help but to hope that they realize their mistake in distancing themselves I think this series ended on a perfect note with Jane and Nicholas story A very lovely read.This story also shows the c [...]


    25. I received this book as an advanced readers copy in exchange for a review I loved this book and I finished it in one sitting and did not finish until 4 30am The characters were well written and relatable A governess Jane is forced to be creative in finding her charge Lady Margaret who ran away while she was sleeping, and she must find her charge in order to protect Lady Margaret from ruin and to protect her position as a governess In order to accomplish this task she must enlist a stranger a Bar [...]


    26. A mad dash to try to recover a stolen horse, find a errant charge that wants to elope, all while protecting everyone s reputations Governess Jane Ephram has her hands full, all while trying desperately to not fall in love with Sir Nicholas Hollings, who is a gentleman who treats her like a lady despite her low social rank They find passion and love, despite the barriers that keep them apart.


    27. The last book in a 3 part series and for sure they have saved the best for last and then some this book is a quick read but an excellent read it has a great story line fantastic characters who are witty and fun as well as super likeable.Excellent read



    28. Crapped out at 30% because the repeated glaring error of the hero s title form of address was unignorable Do your effing homework.
