Vixen

Jane Feather (Author)

Chloe Gresham wasn't expecting a warm welcome - after all, her new guardian was a total stranger. But when Sir Hugo Lattimer strode into Denholm Manor after a night of carousing and discovered he'd been saddled with an irrepressible and beautiful young ward, the handsome bachelor made it perfectly clear he wanted nothing to do with her. Chloe, however, had ideas of her own...

Driven by dark memories to a tormenting despair, the last thing Hugo needed was an irritating, infuriating, unpredictable schoolgirl, especially one whose stunning beauty and natural sensuality challenged his self-control. Yet he owed it to the girl to turn her into a proper lady and marry her off to a wealthy young lord in London. And by God he would do it...if only he could resist the temptation to bring her to his bed...and if only he could keep her safe from those who would use an innocent young woman for shameless revenge.
