A woman auctioned off to pay a gambling debt finds her only hope lies with a seductive stranger in this Regency romance from a USA Today–bestselling author.
 When her father auctions her off to pay his gambling debts, Melissa Seacourt vows that she will be no man’s bought bride. Desperate to escape her fate shackled to someone she could never love, Melissa instead is forced to honor and obey the seductive stranger who comes to her rescue. Purchasing a wife for 20,000 guineas wasn’t the end game Nicholas Barrington envisioned when he walked into the notorious Newmarket gambling club. But the innocent Melissa arouses much more than his protective instincts. It will take all of Nick’s skill and daring to best a cunning adversary hell-bent on his destruction. With two lives now hanging in the balance, Nick’s playing for the highest stakes of all: his future with the woman who won his heart.

Dangerous Games is the 2nd book in the Dangerous series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

From a USA Today–bestselling author: Star-crossed lovers are torn between clan loyalty and forbidden romance in the Highlands of medieval Scotland.

For decades, a feud has divided the Mackintoshes of Clan Chattan and the Comyns of Raitt. Though Raitt Castle lies not far beyond the next ridge, headstrong Lady Catriona “Katy” MacFinlagh of Clan Mackintosh has never seen it. When her curiosity and rebellious spirit compel her to scale a nearby peak in hopes of catching a glimpse, Katy loses her footing, and a broad-shouldered stranger, appearing seemingly out of nowhere, saves her from a fatal fall.
 
Spellbound by the young tawny-haired beauty he has rescued, William Comyn neglects to reveal his full identity to her. As Will and Katy begin to meet in secret and their strong mutual attraction deepens toward love, the clan feud once again erupts in violence, making it harder and harder for Will to reveal that he is a Comyn. But when Will learns that Katy’s clan is in imminent danger, he must decide between his newfound love and his sacred honor, and Katy must choose between her pride and her heart.
 
Set in the same north central Scottish Highlands as The Reluctant Highlander, The Kissing Stone is a historically rich and fiercely passionate Scottish romance from the Rita Award–winning author “frequently credited with creating the subgenre” (Library Journal).
 
The Kissing Stone is the 2nd book in the Highland Nights series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey delivers “first rate romance” (Daily News) in this sparkling, passionate tale of an earl’s daughter who must convince a mysterious viscount to marry her and end his vendetta against her brother.

One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder! With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the Prince Regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon’s heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.

Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister Brooke to his enemy’s remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he hadn’t expected his enemy’s sister to be so resourceful or resilient.

Brooke Whitworth has been dreaming of her first season in London because she intends to win a husband who will take her far away from her unloving family. Instead, she is being sent to the Yorkshire moors to wed a mysterious nobleman whose family is cursed and who has thrice tried to kill her brother. But there’s no room in her heart for fear; this man is her means of escape. She will make him love her!
