Image of The Governess Wears Scarlet

Combining rapid-fire dialogue, quick-paced adventure, passion and a delicious plotline, Robins gifts her fans with another fast, fun story.

Viscount Jason Steele is a masked vigilante helping those in need on London's dark and dangerous streets. When he rescues a veiled woman, their anonymity unleashes deep passions, and they seize an illicit moment together.

The next morning Abigail West sits in the viscount's study, hoping to be hired as governess to his nephews. Jason has no idea that the quiet young woman is the temptress of the night before, and her "tarnished" reputation doesn't disturb him as it does his brother-in-law. Abigail charms the boys and fascinates Jason, and as a kidnapping plot unfolds, they join together to rescue the boys, unmask an enemy and look deeply into their past pain to reveal their true feelings for one another.
