Twenty-two-year-old Catherine Royce goes to Madrid to begin a new job as a tutor. She is met at the airport by tall and distinguished looking Jaime de Berceo Madroza. (His niece Teresa is the one she will be tutoring.) He thinks she is way too young for the job, he expected someone much older. Catherine eventually meets the family---the grandmother, Jaime's brother Ramon, and the niece, pretty and headstrong sixteen-year-old Teresa. Catherine gets on well with Teresa and they enjoy the sights of ...more

Cute vintage-style HQN. I say 'vintage style' because despite the publishing date MacLeod's prose reads like old-old-school authors -- Burchell, Seale, etc. (Indeed, MacLeod got started in the post-WW2 era alongside the oldest HQN vets.) But that's ok because I tend to like the old-old-school. They're squeaky clean yet (usually) manage to include good characters along with a decent story arc, both of which are sadly lacking in the short-format HQN/HPs after 1990...but I digress.

A lovely fantasy type story. Going abroad to tutor a child and finding love in the rough and sexy uncle. Add an antagonist, the Sister-In-Law who feels threatened. Very nice.

They go to the hacienda where they encounter the evil OW. She is the widowed step-mother of the teen girl. She was married to the older brother of the H and now hopes to marry the H so she can retain control of the

This is a fairly typical romance set in Spain. The English heroine, Catherine Royce is to be the tutor to a Spanish teenager for twelve months.

The romantic lead is Don Jaime de Berceo Madroza. Cathy almost immediately compares him to the tall lean and very hard Conquistadors of Spain's violent past. Don Jaime is the uncle and guardian of her pupil Teresa. He is a man who has little interest in women after a betrayal in his youth.

In any case, his sister-in-law Lucia, the step-mother of Teresa, h
