Review: The Governess Affair by Courtney Milan (Novella, The Brothers Sinister, Prequel to Book 1)

Synopsis: Hugo Marshall earned the nickname "the Wolf of Clermont" for his ruthless ambition--a characteristic that has served him well, elevating the coal miner's son to the right hand man of a duke. When he's ordered to get rid of a pestering governess by fair means or foul, it's just another day at work. But after everything Miss Serena Barton has been through at the hands of his employer, she is determined to make him pay. She won't let anyone stop her--not even the man that all of London fears. They might call Hugo Marshall the Wolf of Clermont, but even wolves can be brought to heel... (from the online description)

Review: This is the prequel to Milan's The Brothers Sinister series and explored the romance of one of the main male protagonist's parents. It was okay. I thought the characters were given depth, which is hard in a short story, but the idea that the heroine would go from being raped to volunteering to have sex with someone so quickly didn't seem plausible. Still, I suppose, it's a story, and it's worth reading if you liked the series. Still, their romance seemed a bit rushed for my taste - and I never got the true idea that the main hero was so scary.
