BOOK TWO OF THE BRETHREN GUARDIANS

Click cover for excerpt and more info!

Blurb:

Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game–flirting, dancing and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when–and who–she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own,and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.

But Lord Sussex is not the man the London ton has come to admire. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of the Sussex marriage is cast upon the rocks. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.

Click cover to pre-order form Amazon!

Blurb:

One of the most notoriously eligible bachelors in Europe is finally ready to marry . . .

For fiercely independent Grier Hadley, being the illegitimate daughter of one of London’s most unsavory characters has only one advantage: an enormous, ill-gotten dowry.

Prince Sevastian Maksimi knows where his duty lies: he must find a well-bred young lady—one with a considerable fortune to her name—wed her promptly, and get to the business of producing an heir.

The last thing Grier needs is some unattainable prince curling her toes with his smoldering glances and wicked suggestions. As far as Sev is concerned, she lacks the breeding to become a princess. And yet one kiss from this arresting female is all it takes for him to realize that anyone else in his arms would be unthinkable . . .

A Night with a Marquess

Born on the wrong side of the blanket, matchmaker Sophie Reynard understands the consequences of unbridled desire all too well. Despite the many highborn friends she has matched, falling in love with an aristocrat without a pedigree of her own would be an act of futility. But that doesn’t stop her from succumbing to one evening of anonymous passion…

A Lifetime of Desire

Nicholas Tenbury, Marquess of Ancroft, knows nothing of Sophie’s lineage. He knows only that the enchanting beauty captured his heart in one night and then fled, leaving no trace of her identity. But when he seeks answers from London’s finest matchmaker, he finds none other than the woman herself—stubbornly refusing to acknowledge the attraction they share! Now the enamored Marquess has no choice but to sway Sophie with seduction…

6) Out June 28 *Book Two in Regency Rogues*

Summary:

Injured in the line of duty, Young Corinthian agent Marcus Maxwell, the Earl of Weston, travels to his country estate to recover—or so he believes. His superior’s request that he investigate a smuggling ring run by Napoleon sympathizers seems ridiculous at first, but then becomes all-too threatening as pieces of a treacherous puzzle begin to fall into place. And the most troubling piece of all is Miss Sarah Tisdale, an unconventional beauty whose lust for life is rivaled only by her ability to drive Marcus to distraction. When her family comes under suspicion, Marcus must watch her very, very closely…even if her touch ignites the deep, fiery desire burning just beneath his cool façade.

When it comes to suitors, Sarah’s lush curves and perfectly kissable lips aren’t enough to compensate for her outspoken and willful nature. Sarah’s tasted disappointment before, and she long ago decided that she’s better off without an overbearing husband. Still, flirting with the sinfully handsome Marcus is a pastime worth savoring—even when it leads to wicked pleasures. But when Sarah’s life is in jeopardy, Marcus discovers that the fire between them can no longer be denied—and that he’ll do anything to keep her in his arms.

Living for pleasure, they will give their hearts to no one . . .

Lady Jayne Seymour, Marchioness of Walfort, is furious that such a scandalous agreement would be made. If she acquiesces, there must be rules: no kissing . . . and, certainly, no pleasure.

Until love takes them by surprise.

Blurb:

In The Famous Heroine, Lord Francis Kneller, heartbroken after the loss of Samantha Newman to the Marquess of Carew, agrees, as a favor to his friend the Duke of Bridgwater, to dance with Cora Downes, daughter of a Bristol merchant and protégée of the Duchess of Bridgwater. Cora reputedly saved the duchess’s young grandson from drowning, and to show her gratitude the duchess has brought Cora to London to find her a husband. Cora and Francis are more different than night and day, but after that first fateful dance circumstances force them into a compromising position once too often, and Francis, ever the perfect gentleman, feels obliged to offer her marriage. Cora, for reasons too complicated to describe here, accepts.

At the beginning of The Plumed Bonnet, Stephanie Gray is in a desperate situation. Twice robbed in the course of a long stagecoach journey, she has one coin left and a long way to go. She is wearing her own drab gray dress, but on top of it she wears a brightly colored cloak, and on her head is a garish bonnet with multi-colored plumes. Both garments come courtesy of a troupe of actors who took pity on her plight but were unfortunately traveling in the opposite direction. Stephanie, a poor governess to whom adventure has never happened before, has just inherited a home and fortune from the maternal grandfather she never knew and is on her way to claim them—if she can ever reach them. In the meanwhile the Duke of Bridgwater, bored and restless, is returning to London in his private and luxurious carriage after yet another attempt to divert himself at a house party. He is, of course, traveling the same road as Stephanie, and he is going in the same direction. And then he sees a bright bird of paradise in the most unexpected place…
