A VERY UNUSUAL GOVERNESS 1
He thinks she’s a governess…but she’s actually the new owner of the estate!
Having inherited a big estate on the outskirts of London, Octavia is lighthearted as she sets out to see the property. Upon arrival, she comes across two girls—a smart, quiet girl who reminds her of a storybook princess, and her younger sister, a tomboy who looks like a tiny fairy. Confused, Octavia is led by the sisters to meet their uncle Edward Barraclough, who believes she has come seeking a job as a governess… Little does he know she’s actually the new owner!

The heroine with a sound mind and calm manner discovers she’s inherited a home from her spinster aunt. Her father is against her living or inheriting because 1) she’s single, 2) she’s a young woman, and 3) the inheritance will only attract a number of unscrupulous suitors. The heroine bats his excuses like flies and states it should be fine. Plus she might also tutor her sister’s children, something that really riles her father up bad. The heroine does hold good reason to be against marriage from watching two of her siblings be miserable in their marriages and all the eligible men are bores. Now, she travels to the house to notify the current residents that they’re going to be evicted. Only she’s mistaken as the governess by two young girls who take her to their uncle. He does the same but disqualifies her on the basis she’s young and pretty. In translation: she’ll try to trap him in marriage. His rudeness push her to scold the hero who is impressed by her words. After hearing their story of arriving from the West Indies with the hero having no idea how to handle girls and already a bad string of governesses, the heroine decides to offer her services as a governess. No malicious intent, merely the landlady trying to help her current occupants. As the heroine makes a positive impact on their girls’ lives, she makes a wrecking ball on the hero’s. He finds himself unable to enjoy his usual debauched hobbies nor can stop thinking about the heroine who is “below” his station. Later, a situation reveals the girls’ departure from the West Indies was because of the older girl’s cancelled engagement from a neighboring land owner’s son. The initial reason is that he was after her fortune but there seems to be something else more sinister. And it seems he’s come to England for her too. Moving on, the hero notices there’s a mystery surrounding the heroine with the way she averts talking about her family and all. Afterwards, the heroine’s brother comes in and accidently meets the older girl. He accidently reveals the heroine’s last name to the girl. The heroine meets with him and they share a family hug that’s seen by one of the hero’s matriarch snob relative. She rudely demeans the heroine and when the hero find the heroine in his room, we are left at a cliff hanger.
