    After obtaining a degree in Vocal Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, and years of pursuing a career on the stage, Jerrica left the glamorous life of an actress in favor of writing romance She continues to reside in the New York City area with her husband, cat and their precious daughter.


    Jerrica Knight-Catania’s More than a Governess does a nice job of combining historical romance with suspenseful mystery. The writing shines in the dialog, and the large numbers of characters are easily kept apart with quick hints of background and interrelationships. There’s something inherently satisfying about traffic jams of “stalled wagons and meandering barouches” slowing the journey from London’s city to countryside, and the author portrays town and people very realistically with [...]

    Vikki’s MusingsI recently discovered this series on Kindle Unlimited. After reading/listening to A Gentleman Never Tells, book 1, I immediately purchased More Than a Governess, book 2. I met the heroine in book 1 and had to find out her secrets. Becky Thorn has a huge secret. Her employer treats her more as friend than servant. While she originally started out as a maid, she is now a companion and friend to Phoebe, the Marchioness of Eastleigh. When Becky finds an advertisement for a governess [...]

    More than a Governess (The Wetherby Brides, Book 2)That reason for four stars is this story is like another one. It's a great story about a fifteen year old girl who run away from home after she witness the murder of her mother by her father. The love story of Isabelle and Stephen.

    I really enjoyed this book and would have given it five stars if not for some unresolved issues:Stephan realised himself that Becky was in fact Lady Isabelle Thornton but she never stated it herself to him (or did I miss it?) and seems perfectly unsurprised when he asks about the death of her mother, although she does answer with some reluctance. What happens to Mrs Brown? Did she take part in the kidnapping? What were her motives? This character's plot was apparently completely forgotten by the [...]

    This books sounds like it should be a take on Jane Eyre. And I guess it is. There's the governess, coming from an unpleasant background, looking to leave it all behind plus a case of a sort of secret or unknown identity, there's her employer and the romance there, and the children.Maybe I went in expecting More than a Governess to be really similar to Jane Eyre, but it wasn't. The romance between Becky and Stephen was fast. Too fast (insta-lust!). Not only that, but Stephen paid far too much att [...]

    If you read the first book in the series Becky Thorn will be a familiar character for you. Along with her we join Phoebe and Lord Eastleigh. We get to spend the length of the book with them, which I love seeing past characters connected with in a series. This is a stand alone so don't worry if it's your first in the series but I will warn you. You'll want to go back and read Phoebe's story too. In this book though we learn how Lady Isabelle Thorton became Becky Thorn. Why would a lady in the lap [...]

    A confession of addiction to The Wetherby Brides seriesWhen the heroine in this book enters the story (immediately, of course), she's already in a super-adrenilated state. As "Becky", she stays there for a large part of the book. Between fleeing her murderous father, adjusting to life as a servant after being a proper young lady, and falling in love (against her better judgment, of course!), she manages to not only stay alive, but also to succeed. Of course, it helps that she falls in with the p [...]

    (read again as part of The Ballroom and Beyond)As this book begins, a woman who has listened to her parents argue watches as her father pushes her mother, who falls down a flight of stairs. Realizing she has just seen her mother die at the hands of her father, the young woman flees, and after a few days on the streets, begins a new life as a maid. In subsequent years, she matures, but deep down, stays frightened. An option to move on (from the post of companion, which she has made her way up to) [...]

    I always like governess stories, in spite of the fact (or maybe because of it) that it's basically falling in love with the boss. There's always the conflict of not really belonging to the servant class and not being a part of society either. In this case, it's even more of a conflict because of Becky's background.I liked the suspense in this story of wondering when Becky's secret would be revealed and what would happen. Becky's connection with the children and how she was able to draw them out [...]

    Loved it!More than a governess was a good story. I loved Becky and the Stephen. This was my first for this author and I love her writing. I also liked the secondary characters. The kids were cute and the h friends. And now I realize this book was part of a series but I don't feel I missed anything reading out of order. But now I will have to buy the first book about phoebe and the duke. I want to read how they got together. Great story I would recommend.

    PerfectPerfectI can't find fault with this book. I laughed, I cried and enjoyed the roller coaster of a ride which is within these pages. I will definitely be reading this one again

    Not a bad regency era romance. The only thing that struck a jarring note with me in both this and the first book was the familiarity with the servent class. Members of the aristocracy generally did not treat them as friends.

    From the daughter of a lord to the maid of a poor minor nobility family of the Ton and then the governess of a vastings and finally wife and mother. Rebecca sure has one advanture after another in her young life. And it is just a book away from you discover it.

    looking to reading book three.

    A beautiful story and one that I didn't want to put down. I really enjoyed it.

    It was a little sappy, but easy to read and kept my interest.

    I read this in the Timeless Quills Collection. This was 2.5 stars. It was ok but I doubt I'll be looking for more in this series.

    Great bookGreat book by it's self or in a series. Story line flowed smoothly. It had hope for the hopeless. I will read all the books in the Series.

    enjoyable fluff

    Jane Eyre-ish.

    I liked the story til about the middle then it got a bit long winded. I could not wait for the book to end.

    I loved this book. It is the best in the serie by far!

    She does it again!Heartwarming characters, a bit of intrigue, and the right storyteller, this story took on a life of its own. It was a great read!

    Dana Lynn
    pretty basic but still captivating characters that draw you in!

    More trashy Regency from my binge. Entertaining and quick easy read.

    Autumn Jean
    An addicting series. Cute stories, great plots, fun sexy scenes and inspirational characters. Well done. Worth the read!
