I remember very little of this book, but here goes...
-regency romance
-Spinster determined not to marry
-insists on wearing "spinster cap"
-spinster cap drives hero crazy, he's always harrassing her about it (I think he might take it from her and hide it at some point)
-might be Stephanie Laurens
- hero and spinster have affair but spinster not interested in marriage, much to hero's chagrin (might have that detail mixed up with another book)

I know it's not much to go on....thanks.

This is a romantic trope that's been used more than once, but a couple that comes to my mind where the cap becomes a bone of contention between the Hero & Heroine are by Mary Balogh. She used this first in More than a Mistress and then again in one of her Bedwyn books -Slightly Wicked, I think it might have been, where the heroine Julia has to cover up her hair because its redness offends her nasty employer- an aunt, maybe?

Thanks for your help, Annis. I thought you had it for me with Simply Wicked. I reread it over the past day. While I truly enjoyed revisiting a Mary Balogh book and am on to the others in the Bedwyn series, that was not the book I was thinking of. Thanks again...I'll keep searching.

Pity that wasn't the answer. If you haven't already tried it, give the Amazon Historical Romance Forum a go. They're pretty good over there at finding lost titles.
