The Taming of Lady Kate

By Author GG Vandagriff

Publisher's Note: Lady Kate Derramore and the Marquis of Northbrooke have one thing in common: In order to receive their inheritances, they must marry. Lady Kate, prevented from marrying the man she loves by her father’s will, determines to marry for convenience. With the forthrightness for which she is noted, she sets her sights on Jack—aforesaid Marquis. Jack, meanwhile, has tumbled into love with Kate at their first meeting. All might have gone swimmingly, were it not for his “other life,” the mysterious job that calls him out of town at the most inopportune moments. Unwittingly, he puts Lady Kate’s life in danger, and while attempting to rescue her comes up against her “reins-grabbing” nature. Will he ever be able to master Lady Kate? Will he ever be able to oust another man from her heart? And, despite Kate’s penchant for disaster, will he be able to save her life and his own?

Mandi's Review: The Taming of Lady Kate quickly became one of my favorite reads. This is a fun story filled with intrigue, romantic tension, and a handsome hero. Lady Kate, in an attempt to provide for her younger brother, feels it her responsibility to marry as quickly as possible, but because of her deceased father's will, she is unable to marry the man she loves. When she meets the handsome Marquis, Jack, she is definitely intrigued, but his "secret life" leaves her confused and uncertain of what she really desires. She is torn between her growing feelings for Jack and the man she swore she would always love. The action in this story is paced perfectly, and I absolutely loved the characters. I thought Lady Kate was a wonderful character. She was snarky, independent, cute, but frustrating…a perfect combination. I also really liked Jack. It took me a little longer to like him the way I liked Kate. Right at the start I had him figured for a “player”, but in the end, I was in love too. Vandagriff's newest Regency is definitely a story that will leave you turning the pages long into the night. Your heart will race, and I can almost guarantee that you'll close this book with a sigh.
