He won a wife in a game of cards!
 

Dashing Major Gavin Alexander, recently elevated to sixth Earl of Seabrooke, needs a fortune-fast! His new title came with a mountain of debt, and it is only a matter of time before he’s denied entrance to the clubs where he’s eking out a living by gaming. When Sir Thomas Chesterton cannot pay his losses at the table and offers his sister-and her inheritance-instead, Gavin jumps at the seemingly perfect solution to his troubles and agrees to wed Miss Chesterton sight unseen.

No biddable spinster
 

Frederica Chesterton is appalled to learn what her brother has done without her consent. Determined to undo the bargain, she wrests a promise from Sir Thomas that if she can find proof Lord Seabrook is a rogue, he will release her from the betrothal. Without her brother’s knowledge, Frederica infiltrates Lord Seabrooke’s household as a frumpy servant to ferret out the man’s secrets-and finds more of them than she bargained for! But even as she gathers her evidence against the handsome Earl, she finds herself perilously close to losing her heart. Will revealing her true identity lead to disaster, or to a happy ending neither she nor Lord Seabrooke ever expected?

Three and a half Hiatt Regency Classics in one value-priced collection! 

This collection contains: 

Daring Deception - The new Earl of Seabrooke needs a fortune—fast! His title came with a mountain of debt, so he’s eking out a living by gaming. When a young buck cannot pay his losses and offers his sister—and her inheritance—instead, Seabrooke agrees to wed Miss Chesterton sight unseen. Appalled to learn of her brother’s bargain, Frederica Chesterton infiltrates Lord Seabrooke’s household as a servant to prove him a fortune hunter. But even as she gathers evidence, she finds herself losing her heart to the handsome Earl. Will revealing her true identity lead to disaster, or to a happy ending neither she nor Lord Seabrooke ever expected? 

Christmas Promises (novella) – Lord Vandover regrets his promise to wed by Christmas until he meets lovely Miss Holly Paxton. Holly finds the handsome Marquess so serious she makes a promise, too: to bring joy and laughter into his life.

Christmas Bride – Adventurous Holly would rather spy for England like her twin brother Noel than make her London debut–until she meets the Marquess of Vandover. A whirlwind courtship, a Christmas wedding, and Holly’s life seems full of promise until her inept attempt to become a heroine in her own right ends in a terrible conflict of loyalties. Now Holly must choose between her marriage and her brother’s life!

Azalea - To safeguard her future, thirteen-year-old orphan Azalea is married—in name only. Her handsome new husband immediately sails back to England, but Azalea has already fallen completely in love with him. When she learns of his death at sea, she is devastated. Six years later, Azalea sails for England herself to recover her inheritance there. She is stunned to discover that Christian, her beloved, lost husband, is alive but seems to have no memory whatsoever of her or their marriage. Worse, he is betrothed! Can Azalea possibly force Christian—now Earl of Glaedon—to remember the truth before he breaks her heart again?

Do you choose love even if it means scandal and a broken heart?

A Regency Romance boxed set uniting wallflowers, bluestockings, and spinsters with roguish lords, wounded soldiers, and even a dashing pirate. Misunderstandings, self-doubts, secrets, and shadowed pasts have the flawed but endearing characters trotting headlong into romantic mayhem. Will the heroes’ and heroines’ fledgling love survive the tumult?

Her Scandalous Wish
When an obligatory marriage offer turns into an unexpected second chance for love, Bradford Kingsley seizes it. But Philomena Pomphrett’s reluctant acceptance forces her to trust the man she thinks betrayed her once already.

To Tame a Scoundrel’s Heart
Dominic St. Monté, a privateer-turned-duke, enlists the help of Katrina Needham in finding a bride. Neither he nor Katrina, betrothed to another, are prepared for the resulting havoc their irresistible, mutual attraction causes.

The Wallflower’s Wicked Wager
Since an explosion ravaged Captain Morgan Le Draco’s face, he’s fortified himself behind a rampart of cynical distrust.
