Octavius and the Perfect Governess

A novel

about the book |

Lord Octavius Pryor leads a carefree and untroubled life . . . until the night he visits Vauxhall Gardens in the guise of a woman.

At Vauxhall, Octavius discovers that being a female is vastly different to being a man. Annoyingly different. Unpleasantly different. And, when he encounters the aggressive Baron Rumpole, frighteningly different.

Determined to teach the baron a lesson, Octavius maneuvers his way into Rumpole’s house—and meets the woman of his dreams: Miss Toogood, governess to the baron’s daughters.

Suddenly Octavius has three pressing tasks. 1) To teach the baron to keep his yardstick in his breeches. 2) To keep Miss Toogood safe. 3) To convince her to marry him.
