Read full description of the books The Poor Governess:Cute, better than her other books that I've read, but suffers the same problems, simplistic writing and overly naïve heroines
Lara takes the place of her friend Janet as governess to Georgiana, the niece of Marquis of Keyston, when Janet shows up about to have a nervous breakdown due to the constant harassment of Keyston's friend Lord Montgue. Lara's intelligent ways, draws Georgiana out of her shell, and gathers the interest of Keyston, who steals a kiss, then pretends to call her by another woman's name (best scene!). Unfortunately, Lara also draws the attention of Montgue. When she locks her doors one night, Montgue comes back the next and steals the keys. When Montgue revisits, Lara shoots him, thinks he's dead and runs to report to Keystone. Keystone takes Montgue (who wasn't hit, merely fainted due to a heart attack) away. Ashamed, Lara runs home and sends Janet back. After interrogating poor Janet, Keyston arrives, kisses Lara and asks her to marry him.
