Hott Review of The Governess’s Earl:
Let me start by saying that I rarely read the into material or dedications in books but in the last two of the Grace-by-the-Sea series I’ve focused on it and been tremendously surprised. Especially in The Governess’s Earl because one of my reviews is included!! Woot Woot! As Ms. Scott is one of my favorite authors I was humbled that she found my words worthy of sharing. So, Thank you, Ms. Scott!
On to The Governess’s Earl 😀 WOW! I absolutely LOVED this book! I’m not positive whether it was Rosemary or Miranda who captured my heart more, but I just could not put The Governess’s Earl down! I had to know what would happen next!
I will admit there have been few books by Regina Scott that failed to meet my exceedingly high expectations but The Governess’s Earl went above and beyond. Maybe it was the atmosphere we live in now but the simplicity and relationship of this family was refreshing and fun. Don’t miss a chance to visit Grace-by-the-Sea!

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998).
Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens). Two of her novels, A Dangerous Dalliance and The Twelve Days of Christmas, have been translated into German. A Dangerous Dalliance and The Incomparable Miss Compton have been translated into Italian. Starstruck and Perfection have been translated into Dutch.
Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Tri-Cities of southeast Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents are excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.
Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science-fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.
