RT Rating

McPhee spins a lovely Cinderella story with a leisurely pace; appealing though two-dimensional characters; a predictable plotline; and a happily-ever-after gothic ending.

As companion to her spoiled cousin, Kathryn Marchant accompanies her to balls and soirees, hiding in the background so as not to arouse
her aunt's wrath and slipping into
the library for a moment of peace, when Nicholas mistakes her for his
mistress. His error places Kathryn
in jeopardy and has him wondering what it would be like if she were
his mistress.

Fate presents Nicholas with the
opportunity to "hire" Kathryn as his grandmother's companion and free
her from her aunt's tyranny. But being
in the same house as Nick is far too
dangerous to her heart since the
temptation to fall in love with him
is so easy. Little do they realize that
a ruthless enemy is out to destroy their
newfound happiness and Kathryn's
life. (Harlequin, Sep., 296 pp., $5.50)
