  • The Charming Rogue by Cinnamon Worth

    0 out of 5

    She’s the woman of his dreams. If only she didn’t despise him…

    Everything has always come easily to Caleb James. Everything, that is, but Mary Walker. Her stunning beauty and independent nature enticed him from the start—and yet every romantic overture he made went so horribly awry that she can now barely tolerate him. But that’s all about to change. He has the perfect plan to redeem himself. When she arrives at his family estate, he’ll finally be able to win her heart. Too bad he’s not the only one there with the very same idea…

    The last thing Mary wants is time alone with the insufferable Caleb. But since he’s one of her twin’s best friends, declining his invitation is out of the question. She’ll just have to do her best to ignore the charismatic, overly confident rogue. Only…he’s not acting like a rogue this time. Surely the little glimpses she catches of his softer, kinder side are an act…right?

    Can Caleb and Mary overcome years’ worth of misunderstandings and missteps—not to mention a persistent rival for Mary’s affections—to find their very own happily ever after? Or, when all is said and done, will The Charming Rogue be left alone once again?

  • Lydia Bennet’s Lusty London Lark-About by Cleo Boudreaux

    0 out of 5

    When Lydia Bennet runs off to London with Mr. Wickham to have fun, the last thing she expects is what he expects.

    Torn from the pages of “Pride and Prejudice” because they would have been too embarrassing for Jane Austen to write, here is the could-be-true story of what happened to Lizzie’s sister, Lydia Bennet, when she ran off to London with the randy Mr. Wickham and his swagger stick.

    For Adults Only, this short story is a send-up, a parody, a bit of fluff, much like what’s contained in Lydia’s head, and shows what happens when a girl just wants to have fun.
