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.
Leo must marry and produce an heir within a year to save his family home. Catherine's respectable demeanor 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...
Lisa Kleypas is the RITA Award-winning author of twenty-one novels. Her books have been published in fourteen languages and are bestsellers all over the world. She lives in Washington State with her husband and two children.
Lisa Kleypas just keeps delivering. Historical readers who are interested in the people outside the ballroom would do well to keep her on your short-list. This latest series about the Hathaways focuses on one of the many maligned peoples in 19th Century England - the Romany. And, apart from being socially conscious, they're also fantastic reads.
Three of the Hathaway sisters have found themselves husbands, and Married By Morning finally sees the story of their wastrel, damaged brother Leo... and his redemption at the hands of a no-nonsense governess who will absolutely not be charmed by Leo's layabout ways.
