THE CHAPERON BRIDE by NICOLA CORNICK
Always the chaperon and never the bride... At least, that's
the way it was for Lady Annis Wyncherley. If this young
widow was to remain as chaperon to society's misses, there
could be no hint of scandal attached to her name. Rakes and
romance were strictly off-limits, most especially a rogue
like the handsome Lord Adam Ashwick!
But that proved nearly impossible when Adam made his
daughter's chaperon the subject of his relentless
seduction. Adam knew any attention from him could destroy
Lady Wyncherley's fine reputation. But he was powerless to
control the strong desires she aroused in him. And all too
soon this reformed rogue was hell-bent on convincing a very
stubborn Annis to become his chaperon bride....
Annis, Lady Wycherly, is a very proper chaperon to society
misses.Widowed young, she does not look to marry and has a
reputation for being able to find a husband for even the
most difficult of debutantes. When her work brings her home
to Harrogate, the fashionable spa town set on the Yorkshire
Moors, Annis finds her life becoming decidedly complicated.
Whilst she tries to catch a husband for her two charges,
Adam, Lord Ashwick, seems determined to catch her! After an
idyllic marriage and the tragic death of his young wife,
Adam Ashwick had no thought for re-marriage. Yet when he
meets Lady Wycherley in the gardens at midnight he begins
to see the chaperon in a new light and vows to persuade her
that marriage is not only for her charges!
