Patricia Cabot writes under a few different pen names, and I've really enjoyed all of her books I've read. This book was a bit different, the style was not at all the same as her other books, even as her other books for adults. Still, it was entertaining, and okay for a quick read.
Regency romance - Kate Mayhern is hired to be a chaperone to Isabel by the Marquis. Sworn off women, he is drawn to her. Sparks fly
When beautiful Kate Mayhew is hired as chaperone to Burke Traherne's headstrong daughter Isabel, the Marquis finds himself in an impossible predicament. Torn between the knowledge that she is exactly what Isabel needs but also, for him, the worst possible temptation, he finds himself in constant proximity with someone who threatens his independence. Known for his steely self-control since the day he caught his wife with a lover, Burke has vowed never to risk marriage again.
In accepting his lordship's offer of employment, the feisty Kate faces two perils; her wild attraction to a man who has sworn off love, and a date with her own scandalous past...which she cannot keep secret forever.
