MY REVIEW
Teaching His Ward by Noël Cades
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a charming regency romance. Jemima is the nearly 18-year-old ward of the much older Earl of Southwell Marcus. Though he has yet to properly meet her placing her in the care of an elderly aunt while he continues his career abroad. After Jemima and her friend, Kitty plot for her to accompany kitty on her London season she accidentally makes the Earl’s acquaintance masquerading as the Lady Julia and they are both instantly enamoured unaware of each other’s true identity. On uncovering the truth Marcus is more than shocked but decides he wants Jemima as much more than his ward he wants her as his wife after that is he’s tamed some of her wildness. So that’s the basic premise here and though I enjoyed this Marcus did irritate me slightly at times. I would have definitely preferred he be more forthcoming with Jemima instead of playing games after all he’s meant to be the more mature and experienced of the two and him allowing Jemima to think what’s she did in regard to her future was just cruel. There was also too much miscomprehension with this and it did become a bit tiring to have the constant confusion over intentions. I was glad that Marcus finally realised he didn’t want to change Jemima and loved her for who she was but still found myself very annoyed at his blame game and constant unreasonable annoyances that were really caused more by his insecurities than anything Jemima had actually done here. I also would have preferred it if Marcus had been a bit more alpha and commanding than he was here taking the reigns so to speak. Jemima herself was lovely if rather passive but to be fair to her considering the time this is set in she was incredibly spirited indeed. I also would have liked much more interaction between Marcus and Jemima they actually didn’t seem to spend that much time getting to know each other as individuals after the identity reveal. There were also some interesting side characters here and this was well written but in a very formal style fitting to the period involved. In fact, this had a very authentic feel to it all. I also found this one an easy read.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Teaching His Ward.
