A Touch of Scandal by Jennifer Haymore (Book Review)

A Touch of Scandal
by Jennifer Haymore

The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.

Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on her heart? Or the heady temptation of his stolen -- and sizzling -- kisses? Scandal has followed the duke since the war. Now the greatest shock of all is on its way -- the one that can separate Garrett and Kate forever.

My thoughts: In A Hint of Wicked, William Fisk imprisoned Garrett for 7 years after making him lose his memory, and in so doing he lost his wife and family.  In A Touch of Scandal, Garrett is seeking revenge on Fisk.  While looking for him, he meets Kate - only to learn that Kate is William's sister. 

Kate is torn between the man she is falling in love with and with loyalty towards her family.  I am not sure why she feels so loyal to her family though, as they treat her so poorly.  She is actually employed by William and his wife Lady Rebecca, who isn't even aware that she is William's sister! 

I really like the relationship between Kate and Garrett - you know, the kind of relationship where the underdogs might finally come out on top.  I was hoping for them and hurting with them the entire way.
