Lusting for Covers (22): The Game and the Governess by Kate Noble

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ's Book Palace.

This weeks selection:

The Game and the Governess by Kate Noble
Publisher: Pocket Book, (July 2014)
Series: Not sure of series name, 1
Genre: Historical Romance

Book Blurb:

Three friends. One Wager. Winner takes all.

The Earl—‘Lucky Ned’ Ashby. Pompous, preening, certain that he is beloved by everyone.
The Miller—John Turner. Proud, forced to work as the Earl’s secretary, their relationship growing ever more strained. 
The Doctor—Rhys Gray. Practical, peace-loving, but caught in the middle of two warring friends.

Their wager is simple: By trading places with John Turner and convincing someone to fall in love with him, Ned plans to prove it’s him the world adores, not his money. Turner plans to prove him wrong.

But no one planned on Phoebe Baker, the unassuming governess who would fall into their trap, and turn everything on its head…

Three best friends make a life-changing bet in the first book in a witty, sexy new Regency trilogy from acclaimed author Kate Noble, writer of the wildly popular Emmy award–winning web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

I love the title. I think it's a fabulous title name. Next is the cover, it's kind of seductive. Yes, I fell in love with cover and title without reading the blurb. When I read the blurb it became a must read. Plus, I love governess story. I must add this to my ever growing TBR. I might move this up. What are you lusting for, a catchy title, pretty cover, or both?


  1. I really love this cover, Kate Noble has some of the most adorable yet sexy ones. I wouldn't mind owning that dress though.

  2. Such a beautiful cover -- love the color of the dress, and your right, the title is great! :) I've not read Kate Noble, but soooo many have recommend her books to me, so they are on my list! :)
