Jack Hazleton, Baron St. Giles, has been skirt chasing most of his life. However, over the last year, he’s only been chasing one set of skirts.

But when he learns she’ll be attending her great-uncle’s will reading, he manages an invite for himself, wagering that she’s finally run out of places to hide.
Only a duke will do for Lady Ivy Dallimore. If her unhappily married sisters have taught her anything, it’s that love is fleeting but a title lasts forever, which is all well and good in theory until she finds herself falling for the scandalous third son of a marquess who is bound and determined to make his fortune in trade!
Lord Michael Beck courts scandal, living life to the fullest and dabbling in games of chance. Unfortunately, he’s neither heir nor spare to his father’s title, and the time has come to enter a profession. Michael is no soldier, and he certainly isn’t cut out for the cloth, so he embarks on the most scandalous and risky venture of his life. He will need capital, however, and collecting a number of outstanding gambling debts at a Christmas Eve wedding at Castle Keyvnor seems like the perfect place to start, at least until he stumbles across the lady of his dreams. But what are the odds the practiced gambler can win the girl without losing everything he's worked for?
Louisa was an heiress who knew, only too well, that her money - not her face - attracted suitors. She hated being on display, despised hearing the cruel comments about her appearance, and disappeared as often as possible from the social events held by her grandfather to find her a husband.
One day she discovered a cave on her grandfather's property, but it wasn't just any cave. This one contained a library, a reading chair, and a mysterious man by the name of Douglas.
Perhaps it was the darkness of the cave. Or perhaps it was because Douglas was hiding from the world, too, but a friendship developed and then an attraction.
Louisa was adamant about discovering the reason Douglas was hiding, just as he was determined to keep Louisa from figuring out that he wasn't exactly human.
In the darkness almost anything is possible. An ugly woman can become beautiful and a vampire can live as a man.
