Flying from sin. . .
Andrew Rossiter has used his gorgeous body and angelic face for all they're worth--shocking the proper, seducing the willing, and pleasuring the wealthy. But with a tiny son depending on him for rescue, suddenly discretion is far more important than desire. He'll have to bury his past and quench his desires--fast. And he'll have to find somewhere his deliciously filthy reputation hasn't yet reached. . .
Miss Gemma Peartree seems like a plain, virginal governess. True, she has a sharp wit and a sharper tongue, but handsome Mr. Ross wouldn't notice Gemma herself. Or so she hopes. No matter how many sparks fly between them, she has too much to hide to catch his eye. But with the storms of a Scottish winter driving them together, it will be hard enough to keep her secrets. Keeping her hands to herself might prove entirely impossible. . .

Robinson (Mistress by Marriage) turns in an unusual Regency packed with drama. Andrew Rossiter's son, Marco, was conceived at the behest of an Italian duke who was unable to impregnate his wife. Raised as the heir, Marco is a target for relatives who crave the title and fortune, so when the duke and duchess are killed, Andrew flees to Scotland with Marco and hires a Miss Peartree to be the three-year-old's governess. To his surprise, Miss Peartree is actually Gemma Anna Bassano, who has her own unhappy ties to Italy. Andrew, a rape survivor and former prostitute who is not so much bisexual as unable to believe his desires matter, is ashamed of his past and convinced he has to do penance, while Gemma and Marco struggle to show him that he is worthy of being loved. Despite the heavy secrets, the romance is unaffected and pure.
