At twenty-seven years old, Mariah Travers has become what she most feared—a spinster and a perpetual adolescent in the eyes of her family and the law. But her fortunes change when her father announces that he has promised her hand in marriage to an old friend and colleague in the House of Lords. Lord Peter deVere, Earl of Dunsford, is not at all who Mariah imagined marrying, but she is willing to take a chance on the older man in order to gain the freedom that only married women are allowed.

 

After a tragic marriage that stretched on for two decades, Peter is hesitant to marry again. But he needs an heir, or else his dastardly nephew, Lord William, will inherit everything he’s worked his entire life to build. But when he meets Mariah, sparks fly that neither of them expected. Their unlikely match stands a chance of giving each of them all the things they never realized they needed.

 

But trouble abounds when the mine that has provided Peter with his fortune is exhausted and the search for new veins of copper begins. On top of that, Lord William isn’t about to stand by and watch his inheritance disappear. His efforts to drive a wedge between Peter and Mariah cause havoc and heartbreak at Starcross Castle, which will take an act of heroic devotion to overcome as Peter sets out to prove that true love is ageless.

She lost her first chance at love…


After spending six years to an oppressive husband, Evelyn Ashley-Cooper is free to be herself again, to live again… and to love again. If only she remembered how! Eve finds herself floundering under the veneer of perfection her domineering husband demanded, unable to unleash the vivacious girl she was once was from the confines of her prim exterior.


Since meeting Eve many years before, Francis MacKintosh has become a man embittered by life, by a wife who has made him a cuckold to the whole of Scotland, and by a scandalous divorce. He never thought that he would find Eve, his Eden, once again or that he would dare push aside his disdain of the fairer sex, to trust, and love once more. But for Eve, for the love and happiness he is suddenly certain they can find in each other, he finds himself willing to take a chance.

If only he might convince his true love to do the same!

They found a second chance together…


Love and desire tempt Eve to shed her old self and begin anew, but she’s torn between the yearning to be with Francis and a determination never to put herself under the thumb of another man. Francis' seduction and ability to blend her proper side with the spirited Eve of years past lures the countess back to him, but just when happiness seems but a step away, their mutual pasts will come crashing down around them attempting to tear them apart.


Eve and Francis will have to risk their lives for a second chance and a future together.

The question remains, will their rediscovered love be enough to conquer all?

Endeavoring to cling to his anger, Connor finds he cannot deny the new attraction he feels for his mysterious wife and soon he is wanting nothing more than to take her in his arms and make her his.

With no choice but to play the part of the long lost Heather MacLean, Emmy cannot help but wonder how any woman could ever leave Connor MacLean, a man unlike any she had ever known. A man who thrills and challenges her. A man to love forever. Questions of destiny plague Emmy making her question her very life as she wavers between the desire to return to her own time and the hope for a life with her earl. She begins to question what she really wants out of life. And who can give it to her.
But Emmy’s isn’t the only secret lurking in Duart Castle. Painful secrets will be revealed. Not only hers but that of another. When the truth of Heather MacLean’s disappearance comes to light more than Connor’s life might be destroyed. Choices will have to be made. Forgiveness begged. Second chances taken not just for the people of Duart, but for Emmy herself.
