The Chaperone's Secret
Classic Regency Romances Book #19
As chaperone to
the Season’s most desirable young miss, Amy Corbett has two specific duties: to
ensure that her charge’s reputation remain spotless, and to see her betrothed
to an exceptional beau. Given that the coquettish Lady Rowena manages to
maintain an air of propriety while being a flirt of the highest caliber, Amy
knows her job should be easy— if only the calculating young aristocrat weren’t
so set on toying with men’s hearts, including that of her latest prey, the
debauched Lord Dante Pierson.
Like other gentlemen of high standing and low tastes, Lord Pierson’s restless
desire for excitement had driven him into a life of squalor and scandalous
social blunders. Finding himself drunk and mud-spattered in a gutter one night,
he spies an angelic apparition in a passing carriage and is overcome by a will
to reform—surely such a woman could give him hope of rebirth. When he learns
that the anonymous beauty is Lady Rowena, he vows to coax that flicker of
warmth into a flame.
As Rowena lures the unsuspecting Pierson ever closer to heartbreak, Amy
realizes that for all the talk of his wastrel ways, he is actually a gentle and
caring man to be championed and cherished. And in an unguarded moment, the
unassuming Amy and downtrodden Lord Pierson will discover that they possess
kindred souls—and will make a daring decision to follow their own true path to
happiness and love . . .
This book was originally published as 'Lord Pierson Reforms'.
