He is everything she wants to avoid...For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters - a pleasant position, with one caveat.
Her charges' older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating.
Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutual attraction.
But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response - and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison. She is not at all what she seems...Leo must marry and produce an heir within a year to save his family home.
Catherine's respectable demeanour hides a secret that would utterly destroy her.
But to Leo, Cat is intriguing and infernally tempting, even to a man resolved never to love again.
The danger Cat tried to outrun is about to separate them forever - unless two wary lovers can find a way to banish the shadows and give in to their desires...
