Feature – The Governess Club: Sara & Louisa by Ellie MacDonald

SARA – On sale September 2, 2014

About the book

Sweet Sara Collins is one of the founding members of the governess club. But she has a secret… She doesn’t love teaching. She’d much prefer to be a vicar’s wife and help the local community. But this quiet mouse doesn’t want to upset her friends, and she resolves to help in whatever ways she can.

Nathan Grant is the embodiment of everything that frightens Sara. Which is why she can’t understand why the handsome but reclusive and gruff man is so fascinating to her. When Sara decides it’s time to take a chance and experience all that life has to offer, Nathan is the first person she thinks of.

Will Sara’s walk on the wild side ruin her chances at a simple, happy life? Or has she just opened the door to a once-in-a-lifetime chance of passion?

LOUISA – On sale October 7, 2014

About the book

Louisa Brockhurst is on the run – from her friends, from her family, even from her dream of independence through The Governess Club. But sometimes it’s easier for her to hide from those she loves in order to escape the secrets of her past.

Handsome but menacing John Taylor is a former prize-fighter turned inn-keeper who is trying to make his way in society. When Louisa shows up at his doorstep he’s quick to accept her offer to help – at a price. He knows that she’s hiding something and he can’t help his protective instincts around the beautiful woman.

Their attraction grows, but will headstrong, fiery Louisa ever trust the surprisingly kind John enough to tell him the dangerous secrets from her past that keep her running? Or will the power of her feelings scare her into running yet again?

She fixed the mistakes he indicated. “It would create an exclusivity. We could charge more for the higher vintage drinks. The color of money is all the same, so anyone with the coin could purchase it, but the chances of a farmer being able to afford a dram of fine quality of Scotch is rare. It would cater to a higher class of client and keep the inn from being a gin and ale only establishment.”

“You have thought this through.”

Louisa turned her head so he wouldn’t see her blush with pleasure at his comment. “Yes. We could even do the same with the gin and ale. Have different brands and quality, charging more for the good stuff.”

The bare wood was now out of reach. John moved the nail bag and some shingles over and Louisa followed, hobbling over in her hunched position. You might be more comfortable if you kneel.” He indicated his stance.
