Lord Steadwell's three motherless daughters were heartbroken when their last governess ran off to elope. In her dowdy cap and spectacles, Grace Ellerby seems an ideal replacement--a nurturing, intelligent woman uninterested in marriage. No wonder Rupert doesn't recognize Grace as the golden-haired vision at a masked ball, who slips away before midnight....

Frightened by the unwanted attentions of previous employers, Grace resolved to hide her beauty...and her growing feelings for Rupert. One enchanted evening--and a sweet, breathtaking kiss--changes everything. For with Grace's three adorable charges playing fairy godmother, Rupert may discover his happy ending is closer than he thinks.

"The Baron's Governess Bride" by Deborah Hale 2012.
(This is a Love Inspired Historical) 2nd Book in the Glass slipper Bride's Series.
Grace Ellerby had been beautiful all her life. When her father died and her step-mother sent her to the terrible Pendergast School, she was tormented because of her looks. When she became a governess, she had more problems with single men in the houses where she stayed. Thus she felt her only recourse was to disguise herself. She went to her next interview with her disguise in place.
Lord Rupert Steadwell had three motherless daughters. Their last governess had run off to be married. Rupert didn't want that to happen again so he chose Miss Ellerby because she was so plain and unmarriageable.
Grace came to love the girls but was still skittish around Lord Steadwell. The girls discovered her disguise and wanted Grace to go to a mask ball to stop their father from remarrying.
Can Grace put aside her fears and go to the ball? Does Rupert see through her plain disguise?
Lots more to the story. No detailed sex in this one.
Happy Reading!

Very good. A cinderella type of a story with a different twist.
