Notorious for his stern demeanor and inflexible honor, former soldier Ian Hamilton, the Viscount Warrick journeys to London for one purpose–the permanent and irreversible downfall of the siren who caused his brother’s death. Only, instead of an immoral seductress, he discovers a soft-spoken, raven-haired beauty. Against all reason, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to the last woman in England he could ever love.
A spirited gypsy lady…
The granddaughter of a Romani princess, Evangeline Caruthers endures the bon ton’s disdain and numerous indecent propositions with grace and poise. But when the dastardly Lord Warrick plots her ruination, she’s finished with propriety and politeness. To make matters worse, the handsome lord becomes caught in his own snare which forces them into a marriage neither wants…or do they?
A love that transcends betrayal…
When their lives are suddenly in danger, they must trust each other and their love. But can Vangie forgive Ian? Or will Ian’s regrets keep them from finding the happiness they both crave?
Because love, no matter how hard won, is always worth fighting for.
One thing never changes from era to era—the longing for love and the sacrifices willingly made to achieve a happily ever after. This special romance collection includes three stories of dukes and their ladies, each a charming and humorous Regency romance with a dash of mystery & suspense.
A Diamond for a Duke: A dour duke and a wistful wallflower—an impossible match until fate intervenes. Jules, the Duke of Dandridge wants more than Jemmah Dament’s sweet kisses or her warming his bed. He must somehow convince her to gamble on a man who’s sworn never to love again.
Only a Duke Would Dare: A reluctant duke. A vicar’s daughter. A forbidden love. Victor, Duke of Sutcliffe ventures home, intent upon finding the most biddable and forgettable miss in Essex to wed. Except he finds himself powerless to resist Theadosia Brentwood—even if she is promised to another and the exact opposite of what he thought he wanted in a duchess.
A December with a Duke: He’s entirely the wrong sort of man. That’s what makes him so utterly right. After a horrific marriage, Everleigh vows to never marry again, but the enigmatic Duke of Sheffield is determined to woo the beautiful widow and make her his own.
A fiery, unconventional Scot, Adaira Ferguson, wears breeches, swears, and has no more desire to marry than she does to follow society’s dictates of appropriate behavior. She trusts no man with the secret she desperately protects.
He can’t forget.
Haunted by his past, Roark, The Earl of Clarendon, rigidly adheres to propriety, holding himself and those around him to the highest standards, no matter the cost. Betrayed once, he’s guarded and leery of all women.
Mistaking Roark for a known spy, Adaira imprisons him. Infuriated, he vows vengeance. Realizing her error, she’s appalled and releases him, but he’s not satisfied with his freedom. Roark is determined to transform Adaira from an ill-mannered hoyden to a lady of refinement.
He succeeds only to discover, he preferred the free-spirited Scottish lass who first captured his heart.
