In My Wildest Dreams
Governess Brides #5
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Since she was a little girl, Celeste has had one burning desire:to marry Ellery Throckmorton. But what chance does a gardener's daughter have of capturing the heart of one of England's wealthiest gentlemen? However, the education she receives at the Distinguished Academy of Governesses enables Celeste to return to Blythe Hall with a refinement that complements her ravishing beauty—and makes her bold romantic dream more attainable. But, alas, temptation gets in the way . . .
For wherever Celeste turns, it is not Ellery she encounters, but his serious, yet undeniably intriguing, older brother Garrick. The elder Throckmorton will have no one interfere with the younger's impending nuptials, and his meddling infuriates Celeste to no end. Still, she cannot disregard the fluttering of her heart whenever Garrick deigns to smile at her. And the passion she senses smoldering beneath his formidable control is tempting her in a manner a lady must never allow . . .

My favorite romance novel
I had borrowed this book from the library long ago and it has become my top read. I had to purchase it and have reread it countless times, which for me is a rare occurrence with any book, but Dodd's captivating tale keeps you hooked and coming back for more. If you have ever seen the movie Sabrina and enjoyed it and if you also enjoy steamy historical romance, this is the book for you! The one con is that the book is quite predictable, but you'll love seeing how these characters arrive at their expected ends.
