This is a novella that’s a prequel to The Brother’s Sinister Series. Here is my review of The Governess Affair by Courtney Milan.
It’s interesting to see how it all begins. I liked getting a glimpse of the parents of the characters I’ve gotten to know in the other books in the series. What’s harder is having a romance from a recent rape victim. I certainly can’t imagine what a someone who went through something like that would feel, but the sexual part of their relationship seemed a pretty rushed to me. That being said I think the banter and emotional connection between Hugo and Serena was really great.
Overall it balances out to a novella that I liked. I give it three out of five stars.
