(From the publisher):
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.
