Rules of Surrender
by Christina Dodd

The Rules of Employment for The Distinguished
Academy of Governesses: Always remember your station. Be
sure to maintain a disciplined schoolroom. And never, ever
become too familiar with the master of the

Lady Charlotte Dalrumple is known as England’s most
proper governess, a woman who has never taken a misstep
socially—or romantically. On the surface, she seems
perfectly suited to accept the challenge of reforming Lord
Wynter Ruskin, sadly uncivilized by his travels abroad.

But Wynter has no desire to be taught manners. He glimpsed
an uninhibited beauty hiding beneath Charlotte’s prim
exterior, and he’d much rather spend his
days—and nights—instructing her in the pleasures
of the body and the passions of the heart. But before they
can love both must also master the Rules of Surrender.

Book #2 of Christina Dodd’s most popular historical
series, The Governess Brides, in eBook and paperback!

Originally published March 2000.
