Lady Julianna knows this much for certain: He is no fool when it comes to the art of seduction.
Nicholas Strangefellow is a scoundrel prized by King Henry himself--a court jester. Now sent to the wedding of the Earl of Fordham to entertain, but secretly under orders from the King to bring back a legendary chalice, Nicholas is a man on a mission that could easily be bollixed. Suddenly the chances of bollixing increase merrily when he meets irresistible Julianna, the widowed daughter of the bride-to-be.
After a loveless arranged marriage, Julianna plans to join a convent. Yet she finds herself in wickedly provocative conversation with, of all men, the king's mocking, ribald "wedding present" to the Earl. Nicholas--the jester, the fool, and a mere commoner, who immediately decides to seduce her while procuring the chalice for King Henry.
What follows is a rollicking comedy, an intrigue spiced with villains and danger, but most of all, a tender and sexy romance. Nicholas is hardly the husband a noblewoman should choose, and when he's faced with a choice between desire and betrayal, or loyalty to King and a comfortable life, he'll have to confront the shocking truth. That he's become a fool for love.

Her rescuer is Reno, the Committee's most unpredictable agent. They'd met once before and the attraction was odd—tattooed Yakuza punk meets leggy California egghead—but electric. Now Reno and Jilly are pawns in a deadly tangle of assassination attempts, kidnappings and prisoner swaps that could put their steamy partnership on ice.

She made one horrible mistake already . . .
Michael Dowd is there to find out the truth about her involvement; he'll seduce her if that's what it takes. And if he learns she was one of the terrorists, he'll kill her.
But someone on the island is trying to kill them both. How will Francey know who to trust when Michael disappears and reappears as a perfect stranger? Who is the villain, and who is the savior? The wrong answer means death.

Ryan realizes what Judith is up to almost as soon as she walks through the door to interview for a position that she’s far too qualified for. He recognizes the nosey reporter from pictures Lacey had shown him, but he also knows that kicking her out will only make her think he has something to hide. He’s sure that Lacey’s death was nothing more than a tragic accident, and he assumes the best way to prove that to Judith is to let her stay at The Puppet Factory and do a little investigating of her own. The fact that he is attracted to her has nothing to do with it.
The only flaw with Ryan’s plan is that Lacey’s death was no accident. And the closer Ryan gets to Judith the closer the killer gets to her.

She doesn't even mind that the farm was the scene of a grisly multiple murder twenty years earlier….
Then a stranger comes to town.
When a stranger moves in next to the farm, Sophie believes the sense of peace she has built for herself and her family is being threatened. Because there's something different about John Smith. It's clear he's keeping secrets…and that he's come to Colby, Vermont, for a reason. And that reason has something to do with Sophie and Stonegate Farm.
Now her dream is becoming a nightmare.
Who is John Smith? Why does his very presence make Sophie feel so completely out of control? And why is she beginning to suspect that this mysterious stranger will put in jeopardy everything she's dreamed of—maybe even her own life?
But when the journey takes a treacherous turn, masks of deception fall and there is no safe place but in the wicked prince's arms. With treachery drawing near, they are soon racing against time, murderous revenge…and their own sinful desires.
Michael Fraser was so handsome, it was positively criminal. His cold blue eyes made Elizabeth's heart skip at their very first meeting. No doubt about it, the gossip was right: this tough soldier was a traitor, a spy, a scurrilous French agent. Yet her hapless cousin had invited him to their home for the weekend.
What trouble might this untrustable man cause during the course of a three-day house party filled with distinguished guests? Soon Elizabeth hears that this stealthy spy has been querying the servants about her. Her brother is off on a secret mission against Bonaparte--that must be the reason for Michael's sly attentions.
If only his gaze weren't so irresistible, his voice so hypnotic, his kiss so treasonously sweet. She never imagined a French agent could be this dangerous.

Adam Traywick may be capable of both.
In this celebrated gothic romance, will Miranda be the next victim of Barrett's Hill?
When her father's will sends strong-willed, irreverent Miranda to the New England estate of nearby Barrett's Hill to live under the guardianship of her elder cousin--the sour Reverend Smathers--and his scheming family, trouble quickly brews.
Two decades earlier a murder took place on Barrett's Hill, and the suspects are few. Miranda's spirited investigation raises the fear of public scandal among her hypocritical relatives--the Reverend's alcoholic wife and viciously manipulative daughter--especially since the suspects are the Reverend, his toadying assistant Fathimore, Miranda's own father, and the darkly irresistible Adam Traywick.
Adam turns his masterful charms on Miranda, and she falls in love. Yet as it becomes clear she's provoked the killer's survival instincts, with herself his target, she can't help wondering if Adam is seducing her or planning her murder.

Trapped with him in his house on a windswept cliff overlooking the wildly tossed sea, Katie tried to fight the feelings O'Neal awakened in her—both of sensuality and fear. She began to suspect that something haunted the tall, gray-eyed man's domain, something more than the wicked servants or family ghosts… something strange that only O'Neal himself could reveal.
