Lady Sally Derwent is an unusual Regency Miss, in that at the age of five and twenty, she is still unwed and determined to remain so. She has no desire to relinquish her freedom in order to become the property of some unworthy gentleman. Nor is she willing to part with the independence she acquired at the age of one and twenty, when she came into the fortune bequeathed to her by her paternal grandmother.


There is also the matter of the other part of the inheritance her grandmother left to her.
A scandalous collection of erotica. Books, paintings, statues, sketches, most of which make Sally blush to look at, but which fascinate her nonetheless.

Attending the wedding of a close friend, Sally takes one look at Nicholas Sefton, Marquis of Oxbridge, with his unfashionably long dark hair, piercing green eyes, and magnificently muscular body, and knows he is the missing piece from her vast collection of erotica. Not the man himself but the sketches she wishes to make of him. Nude.

Nicholas Sefton has long been bored with both the restrictions of society and the people in it. The war with Napoleon is over, and although he is the owner of several large estates, they are all being run very capably without his assistance. Likewise his townhouse in London. He is currently in need of a diversion in his life, something, or someone, to occupy or entertain him.

Lady Sally Derwent’s outrageous request, to sketch him naked, is beyond any amusement Nicholas might have imagined for his immediate future.

The lady herself is beautiful, the attraction between the two of them mutual, but she nevertheless declares herself unavailable. A situation Nicholas intends to change at the earliest opportunity.

Unrealized by either of them, someone close to them wishes Lady Sally Derwent dead. Sooner rather than later.

Will the Marquis and Sally become so caught up in their heated attraction to one another they remain unaware of the danger until it is too late?

Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Unlaced series are steaming hot and the language sometimes explicit.


 Wicked Torment is the 1st book in USA Today bestselling author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW Regency Sinners series.
Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Sinners, Regency Unlaced, Knight Security, and Alpha Series, have stronger sexual content and language than my other books.

Eight gentlemen known in Society as The Sinners.

Having all returned safely from Waterloo, these gentlemen now find themselves with the more dangerous task of discovering which of the ladies in Society has been acting as a spy for the enemy.

Dangerous to their hearts, that is.

Darius Strong, the Duke of Wolferton, known to his close friends as Wolf, cares little for what Society or anyone else thinks of him, and lives his life accordingly. Given the task of discovering whether Lady Beatrix Hanwell has been using her position in Society to garner information for the enemy puts him in something of a quandary, however. The two of them have met several times in the past, occasions when that lady had not hesitated to show her disapproval of him. Mainly by ignoring his existence. Which is going to make it difficult for Darius to get close enough to her to seduce her into revealing whether or not she is the guilty lady.

Beatrix is puzzled—and more than a little disturbed—when Darius Strong, the exceedingly handsome and scandalous Duke of Wolferton, begins to show her marked attention. As a widow aged seven and twenty, and possessing no great beauty, his interest is mystifying to say the least. Much as she tries to fight her growing attraction to Wolf she is failing miserably, as each meeting between the two of them draws her ever nearer to forgetting all propriety and simply giving in to his seduction.

Except her surrender means revealing the secret she has taken such pains to hide.

To Darius’s surprise he finds himself becoming intrigued by Beatrix. Not only intrigued but he desires her more deeply than any other woman he has ever met. So much so that he finds himself hoping she is not the lady they are seeking.

Is Beatrix guilty of treason, and if not what will her reaction be to Wolf when she discovers the truth behind his single-minded pursuit of her?
 After attending the wedding of one of her closest friends, and celebrating the betrothal of another, Mrs. Felicity Randall is looking forward to spending a peaceful summer at her house in the country. Several months when she may do and say as she wishes, without having to constantly be aware of her place in London Society as the respectable young widow of Major Stephen Randall.But before Fliss can manage her escape to the country, she overhears a conversation in which two people discuss the murder of the new Earl of Winterbourne. Unable to see or identify either the man or the woman from her hiding place, but aware of where the murder is to take place, Fliss finds her plans for the summer changed completely, and requiring she procure an invitation to the infamous house party hosted every summer by the notorious Lady Eccles. A house party at which no respectable widow would normally dare to show her face. 
Sinclair Montgomery has no time or patience for London society, as it had no tolerance for his mother so many years ago when she eloped with her Scottish Highlander, Sin’s own father. But when Sin unexpectedly inherits the title of the Earl of Winterbourne, he has no choice but to go to England to view his new estates. It was certainly not his intention, once there, to find himself the guest at a summer house party. Although the rumors of debauchery and licentious behavior to be had there were certainly enough to pique his interest.
Finding the beautiful Mrs. Felicity Randall waiting for him in his bedchamber the second night of his stay, leads Sin to believe that perhaps all is not lost after all, and he proceeds to make love to the delicate beauty. Until she informs him the only reason she came to his bedchamber, has attended this house party at all, is to warn him his life is in danger. That there is a plot afoot to murder him whilst he is there.
Sin has only been in England a matter of days, certainly not long enough to have antagonized anyone into wishing to murder him, and leading him to wonder if the poor woman can possibly be deranged.
It would be a great pity if that were to be the case, when the sexual attraction between the two of them is instantaneous and highly combustible… 
Pleasured by a Duke is the 7th book in USA Today Bestselling author, Carole Mortimer’s, #1 bestseller and highly acclaimed Regency Unlaced Series. Approx 40,000 word countSebastian Falkner, the Duke of Stowmont, having only recently rid himself of the guardianship of one ward, by marrying her off to the man she loves, has now learned he has been named as guardian to a seven year old boy. To makes matters worse, that young boy is to be accompanied to Sebastian’s London home by his stepsister, Miss Horatia Chelford.

From the moment Sebastian meets the plain but outspoken Tia he knows she is going to be a thorn in his side. But one he does not intend to suffer for any longer than he has to.

Except he very soon forgets he ever thought of her as being plain and unattractive, and sees only the fineness of her indigo eyes, the silkiness her ivory skin, and the sensuous allure of her highly responsive body. 

Having suffered the recent and violent death of her beloved stepmother, Tia is determined she will not lose Martin, her young stepbrother, too. With that in mind, she is determined to establish a place for herself within the household of Martin’s new guardian, Sebastian Falkner, the Duke of Stowmont.

But she had not expected that gentleman to be quite so coldly haughty and aristocratic, or so devilishly handsome. Indeed, Sebastian Falkner causes a hitherto unknown warmth and desire within Tia which blazes out of her control at the least provocation. And Sebastian can be very provoking.

But the person who murdered Tia’s stepmother has followed her and Martin to London, putting both of them in danger. As a consequence, Sebastian is also put at risk, from a man who will stop at nothing to acquire what he believes was stolen from him.

Will Sebastian be able to keep Tia and Martin safe?

Or protect his heart, which he had believed was too cold and cynical to ever be given to any woman?

When not running the club Gabriel continues to search for his sister who was cast off by their father almost twenty years ago, pregnant and alone, and has never seen again since.


Young Vic Tyrone was born on the dirty streets of London and will no doubt die there too, sooner rather than later. Seeing and speaking to the handsome Duke of Blackborne, as he strolls by on the way to his club every evening, is the single brightness in days and nights that are all too often dark with the despair of poverty.


Gabriel very much enjoys his daily exchanges with Vic, the cheeky imp who sells fruit or flowers on the street corner near Club Venus. But when Vic isn’t in his usual spot for two days in a row Gabriel becomes concerned and goes in search of him in the Rookery, the most dangerous slum in all of London.


When he finds the boy Vic is sitting silent and numb, the body of his dead mother having been consigned to a pauper’s grave that morning.


Deciding to take the devastated Vic home with him, and sending for his friend and doctor, Lord Benedict Winter, to attend the lad, reveals a secret that totally stuns Gabriel.


Vic isn’t a boy at all but a young woman!

Looks can be deceiving, however, and within minutes of Rachel calling at his home and explaining her current predicament, Lucien realizes he was wrong to have judged the lady without really knowing her, or her circumstances.

 Nathaniel is the 1st book in USA Today Bestselling and Amazon #1 author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW paranormal series, DRAGON HEARTS.
Warriors, from the mists of time?
Dragons, of myth and legend?
Or both?

Taking a much-needed holiday in North Wales, journalist Chloe Evans discovers a castle not listed on any of the dozen or so maps she has of the area. The nearest thing she can find is the remains of a castle that used to be there but crumbled into ruin many centuries before. Her curiosity getting the better of her, Chloe decides to find out more about this imposing grey stone castle and anyone who might live there.

The locals, she discovers, call it Pendragon Castle. When Chloe asks them more probing questions some say there are half a dozen male members of the original family still in residence, and that they’re brothers. Others claim there to be more, or less, than that number. But all, without fail, describe those men as being big and muscular, more handsome than any man has a right to be, with eyes capable of mesmerizing and seducing any woman who falls under their spell. Some of those people add a knowing wink, others a warning not to venture too near the castle, and to certainly keep her distance from the men living there.

Visitors staying at the same small hotel as Chloe talk of seeing bright lights and helicopters landing on the mountain late at night, and of hearing strange noises that sound like the roars of wild animals.

There was a story here, Chloe is certain of it.

Whatever the story is regarding Pendragon Castle and the men who lived there, Chloe decides she isn’t leaving Wales until she’s discovered exactly what’s going on. 

While exploring the area around the castle, Chloe is challenged by the dark and taciturn Nathaniel. A man who fits the description of the castle’s inhabitants exactly: well over six feet tall, handsome as sin, with shoulders wide enough to fill a doorway, and eyes the colour of the clearest emerald.

The moment she gazes into those mesmerizing green eyes Chloe realises she should have run while she still could.
 OBSESSION (Regency Lovers 2) is the 2nd book in Amazon #1 & USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW Regency series, Regency Lovers.
Author’s note: The books in the Regency Lovers series are steaming hot!

Three years ago Lord Alexander Stirling, younger brother of the Duke of Hawkwood, had been shocked to learn he had been made the guardian of fifteen-year-old Miss Amanda Fullerton, the daughter of a man he had once served with in the army. Having absolutely no room in his bachelor life for a young ward Alex immediately enrolled Amanda into Miss Marchment’s School for Young Ladies, and apart from paying the school fees, had promptly forgotten about her.

Unfortunately, he has now received a letter from Miss Marchment informing him Amanda Fullerton is now past the age for continuing as a pupil at her school. The headmistress now requires Alex’s instruction as to whether Amanda should remain at the school as one of the teachers or be returned to him.

There was no question in Alex’s mind that Amanda Fullerton should remain at the school.

Having spent the past three years languishing in the strict confines of Miss Marchment’s school Amanda had no intention of remaining there a moment longer that she had to. Nor did she intend being forced to do so, by the headmistress, or the man who was her guardian but had not so much as visited her at the school once nor requested she ever join him for the holidays.

As far as Amanda is concerned Lord Alexander Stirling has avoided his responsibilities for quite long enough.

She was completely unprepared for the shock of arriving at Lord Stirling’s London home and finding him in bed with an equally naked and beautiful red-haired woman.

Alex is furious at the manner in which his ward has chosen to take it upon herself to arrive completely unannounced and uninvited at his residence in London. That anger is added to by his feeling completely wrong-footed by the timing of Amanda ’s intrusion into that bachelor establishment.

But having arrived, Amanda Fullerton refuses to leave, and without resorting to actually physically removing her, Alex has no choice but to accept his beautiful and disobedient ward is here to stay. An acceptance that is immediately complicated by the unexpected desire Alex quickly realizes he feels for his ward.

When a series of “accidents” put Amanda’s life in danger Alex finds himself stepping up to the role of guardian and protector when he would far rather be Amanda’s lover.
