This HaBO comes from Jen, who is looking for a historical romance:
I’m looking for a historical/Regency romance. I read it within the last 2-3 years. I can’t remember if I finished the whole book and what I do remember is kind of vague.
The heroine is possibly a governess, other employee, or guest in the hero’s home. There’s obviously some sexual tension but heroine holds him at bay. The hero tells her that if she ever ventures into the wing/floor of the house where his room is, he’ll take it as a sign that she wants him or that she wants to be his mistress.
I think the first time she ends up going near his room either by accident or because she’s snooping around. And the hero sees her there and definitely at least kissed her. He might have taken her into his room, but I can’t remember if they went beyond kissing that time though.
This could be several historical romances. Can we find the right one?
