      Summary: "Gayle Windham, Earl of Westhaven, is the first legitimate son and heir to the Duke of Moreland. To escape his father's inexorable pressure to marry, he decides to spend the summer at his townhouse in London, where he finds himself intrigued by the secretive ways of his beautiful housekeeper... Anna Seaton is a beautiful, talented, educated woman, which is why it is so puzzling to Gayle Windham that she works as his housekeeper. As the two draw closer and begin to lose their hearts to each other, Anna's secrets threaten to bring the earl's orderly life crashing down--and he doesn't know how he's going to protect her from the fallout..."--P.

The discomfort of the hot sweltering summer is nothing compared to the onslaught of women who do not interest him, a category that, oddly, does not include his new housekeeper. Anna Seaton excels at her position, remembering the earl's preferences, and making sure he has a well-kept home. But she does remain remote. The more Gayle sees Anna, the more he realizes that she is no ordinary housekeeper: She is beautiful, well-read, and acts and speaks like a true lady. As the two become intimate, he realizes that she is hiding a secret. And while he plans to make her his wife, she is planning her escape. Burrowes' outstanding debut is a witty, sensual, Regency romance featuring complex characters who ring true to the time period, leaving readers saying huzzah!

PW Reviews 2010 October #1

Burrowes debuts with a luminous and graceful erotic Regency. The earl of Westhaven is determined to avoid his father's marital machinations by remaining in sweltering London while Society departs for the country. Westhaven takes great pleasure in his well-run household until his new housekeeper, Anna Seaton, mistakes his intentions toward a chambermaid and knocks him flat with a fireplace poker. Anna is too educated and polished to have been born to service, but she makes a tender nurse. As their affections grow, Westhaven believes he's found a candidate for marriage who would please him and satisfy his father, but Anna refuses Westhaven's proposal. Her hidden background contains ugly obligations, and she's determined to keep outrunning them even as he tries to change her mind. Burrowes turns familiar tropes into a refreshing and captivating love story that will have readers eagerly awaiting the planned sequels. (Dec.)
