About the author:
Romance novels, for some of us, are a necessary thing. Like breathing air, we must have our daily dose. It is life sustaining. This has been true for author Ellise C. Weaver since junior high school when she first discovered romance novels. Ellise quickly learned that devouring a good book was as delicious and satisfying as any feast, yet she's never quite full. She is grateful to romance writers out there who are busily typing away at new, undiscovered stories that she might, yet again, happily consume.
The Governess is Ellise's first attempt at putting together something delightful for her to read. She was tired of sitting around recovering from a bout with breast cancer and finding that even reading was an impossible thing to do. Her own creativity needed challenging. In that recovery time, she endeavored to come up with something palatable and divine. According to Ellise's readers, she has accomplished this goal.
Writing has become her outlet, and she enjoys working on her newest means for support that she believes a loving Father in heaven has blessed her with. The Huntington Saga Series Novels, so far, has eleven novels: The Governess (Volumes One, Two, and Three; The Trilogy; and The Governess Novella #1); Pirate Bride; Elspeth Was Her Name; Creighton's Daughter; Jonathon's Revenge; Lady Gabrielle; and Lady Elisabeth. Look for these novels and more in the coming months ahead on Ellise's website below.
The Governess-Book One: Volumes One - Three each reached #1 on Amazon.co.uk in the Religious & Inspirational Romance category less than one month after being released. All three books reached top ranks in the U.S.A. as well.

And for something scary, try out her newest endeavor-a romantic suspense thriller-The Gates of Loughurst Castle: Book One in her Regency Romance Zombie Apocalypse Series. This fast-paced story is a taste of something completely different. Enjoy!
The Governess: Book One--Volume Three
A Huntington Saga series novel
Ellise C. Weaver
(This volume is Volume 3 of 3 volumes meant to be read in order.)
Lovely, inexperienced Miss Carly Blakemore, only nineteen years of age, is received at her first post as governess for two precocious children, ready to love them as her own. But her biggest challenge will be their father; masterful and strong in everything-especially his kiss.
Poor and without dowry-and even worse-now orphaned, Miss Carly Blakemore is thrown into the Victorian world without aid. Carly is forced to seek a position as governess in the house of Lord Huntington, the Earl of Dunfordshire-a man alone in his own right-and under suspicion for the tragic murder of his well-known and adulteress wife. His governess's honesty and forthrightness quickly offend his noble person, and he finds himself reeling from her constant evaluation of his lack of parenting skills. However, in the midst of his resentments, he finds himself strangely drawn in by her very no-nonsense ways that drive him to madness. Carly stands her ground in head-to-head battles of will that take her to the brink of dismissal.
Carly and the earl continually fight the feelings growing between them. Both are oblivious to the clouds of deceit and intrigue that are growing around the manor house, some bent upon removing the beautiful, headstrong governess permanently. A final desperate chase leads to an interception of a ship upon the high seas headed for the Mediterranean and a secret society of white-slave traders.
