After finding the ruins she defies the signs and enters the decaying property. Whilst wandering around Liz opens a door and walks into a 19th century kitchen - complete with cook and scullery maids. She is addressed as Miss Moray - the new Governess to the newly orphaned nephews of the head of the household - Lord Radley Fairbank.
Thrust into the Victorian life, Liz quickly finds out the Lord Radley has a rather peculiar way of keeping her in line.
A great time travel story, an easy two hour read - perfect for a little light reading on holiday.
Copy received in exchange for an honest review.
Elizabeth Moray aka Liz was over feeling sorry for herself, being burned by her boyfriend and best friend has turned her inside out. Taking the tour of the ruins of Lord Radley Fairbanks was sure to get her mind off her troubles. Right? Liz soon finds herself not in London 2017 any longer, but in Victorian time and in Lord Radley Fairbanks home.
Liz and Radley hit a few road blocks upon their first meeting. Things get hot and interesting fast, but what I enjoyed about this couple is the connection they had. I was asking myself what if a lot throughout reading Head of Household. What shocked me in a pleasant way, was Liz was the instigator of their relationship, a not so normal position for this time-period. It worked well.
The supporting characters were of the staff variety mostly, but there were Lord Fairbanks Nephews orphaned by their parent’s death. Whom become his charges. I enjoyed watching Radley relax into becoming a parent, Liz had much to do with that. I enjoyed that even though it seemed strange to Radley the things Liz had said, he accepted Liz’s knowledge.
The plot was a nice mixture of Time Travel and Historical Romance as well as a small taste of BDSM. Lily Harlem had my attention at the first chapter, the character’s in Head of Household were engaging, sexy and fun. I do find myself left with questions in the end like. Will Lord Fairbanks come to terms with his desires for all thing kinky? Will Liz return home to her time? Will Lord Radley and Elizabeth’s connection be strong enough to last. All in all, a wonderful read!
Rated 5 Stilettos by Deb!
This story starts with Liz visiting the English countryside and going where she shouldn't only to find herself thrown back into Victorian England as a governess to two young boys in the household of Lord Fairbank.
I loved Liz. She is slightly kinky, not afraid to own her sexuality but also loving and caring. She also has a rather adventurous side to her since she manages to take the time travel all in stride and settles into a new life as governess. I loved too that she brought a sense of fun and laughter to an otherwise strict but caring household.
Lord Fairbank or Radley as he's known is a strict disciplinarian with rather kinky tastes for his time. He's never been able to find someone who accepted him entirely for who he is and is compatible with him, so he's always been rather aloof and lonely, even when he's a caring and generous employer and lord of the manor. I loved that Radley couldn't keep his spanky hands to himself where Liz is concerned and he found her irresistible.
While you'd think this story is filled with sexy, hanky spanky stuff (it is!), it's not just that. It's also filled with a lot of wonderful and endearing moments as Liz cares for and teaches the two young boys about maths, life and tadpoles. I also loved the moments when Radley unbent enough to show the boys a warmer, more caring side of himself, with the four of them bonding towards becoming a family. The boys were a wonderful touch to the story. Who can resist two cute 6 year old twin boys? And one of them has a teddy bear called Tiggy. So stinkin' adorable!
All in all, it was a quick, fun and sexy read.
