About this ebook

Enter an era of dashing dukes in disguise, secret-keeping viscounts, and earls trying (and failing) to resist temptation! This special collection (over 800 pages) of novels and novellas from RITA-nominated, USA Today bestselling author Anthea Lawson is full of spicy (and a few sweet) delights. 

FORTUNE’S FLOWER - To claim his family estate, James Huntington embarks on an expedition to find his grandfather’s missing journals. He’s at odds with his fellow traveler, the wellborn Miss Lily Strathmore - but even as they succumb to temptation, danger awaits.

THE VISCOUNT’S SECRET - Anthony Blake, Lord Percival, is renowned throughout the ton for his handsome face and foppish ways. Only a select few know that beneath his foolish exterior is a keen intelligence in service to the Queen. Nobody suspects his secret until he meets a quiet young woman who sees far more than she should.

THE PIANO TUTOR - Widowed Lady Diana Waverly finds love and passion in the most unlikely of places when a new piano tutor arrives at her door.

MISTRESS OF MELODY - With her future in jeopardy, a young woman must turn to Morgan Trevethwick, the Earl of Silverton, for help. He cannot refuse a lady in distress, though she threatens to overturn his entire carefully-planned future.

A DUKE FOR MIDWINTER - After a gentleman rescues her from a winter storm, Miss Selene Banning finds herself snowbound with Sir Jared Kendrick, a baronet who is not precisely who he claims to be.

An exceptional set of very well told stories that will transport you back in time. Romance and more romance with stories so different it is almost impossible to believe they are written by the same person. The common thread is Old England and that is a time romance and place romance blossoms.
