ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR is the first in a new Regency romp of a series from the author of the Merriwell Sisters series!

When former naval captain, Harry Kincaid, is left in the lurch with his flighty older sister's three unruly children, he hasn't a clue how to handle it. Desperate, and prepared to pay whatever it takes, he turns to Miss Prentice's School for Young Ladies for an emergency governess who can get his formerly ordered house running shipshape again.

After a strict and miserable upbringing, fledgling governess Georgie Rowe doesn't believe that children should be seen and not heard. She believes that childhood should be filled with laughter, adventure, and discovery (. . . everything hers wasn't). Thankfully, the three Pendleton children are already delightfully bohemian and instantly embrace her unconventional approach. However, their staid, stickler-for-the-rules uncle, is another matter entirely.

Georgie and Harry are soon butting heads over their differences, but as time passes, their attraction soon becomes undeniable and, after all, all's fair in love and war . . .

Virginia Heath is fast becoming one of my favourite historical romance writers.
Georgie and Harry were such great characters and I loved how their relationship unfolded. The children and the other side characters were brilliant, and obviously the dogs were hilarious.
I'm always worried starting books where the two main characters have significant power dynamic differences but I think this was handled well.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a free eARC of this book
