Elizabeth Buckley has been in love with
Edward Monk for most of her life. Unfortunately he's only ever had eyes for her
older, prettier sister. Five years after he left the village to make himself
worthy of a Buckley, their lives intersect. This time, she's determined to make
him see her and bed her.

All Edward has to do is convince the girl he
loves to set aside her betrothed and wed him instead. When her betrothed
becomes tangled in a web of lies and murder, it's up to Edward to untangle him.
If only he could keep his mind on the task, and not get distracted by the wrong
Buckley girl.



As lies unravel and the Buckleys are
brought to the brink of ruin, Edward must make the ultimate sacrifice, or risk
losing everything he's worked so hard for.

 Praise for the books in THE ASSASSINS GUILD series:

"as i started reading this book i thought i had made a huge mistake...as i am NOT a lover (usually) of 1598 time period! BUT...C. J. Archer not only pulled me into this book but the three books after this one. she had me "hook, line and sinker" by the end of the first chapter." ~ reviewer Ev

"If you like well developed characters, colorful situations and lots of intrigue you'll love this series of books as much as I did. Buy them all, because you'll have to in the end." ~ reviewer Marcella

THE CHARMER

Orlando Holt has never assassinated a woman before. The lovely, feisty Lady Lynden will be his first. She's supposed to be a vicious murderess, but when Orlando begins to have doubts, he sets out to discover the identity of the person who hired him. What he learns will turn his world upside down, and propel him headlong into love with a woman who's immune to his charms.

THE REBEL

Cole is a mystery, even to those closest to him in the Assassins Guild. All anyone really knows for sure is that he's ruthless, grim, and cares little for his own life. So when he loses his memory during an attack and thinks himself a naive eighteen year-old again, no one can really believe the transformation. But as his memory returns, so do the nightmares and the dark reality of who he has become. When gentle-natured Lucy falls in love with the damaged stranger, she thinks him a smiling, amiable gentleman. But rumors of a murder in the nearby village have her suspecting that her patient may be hiding a terrible secret.

THE SINNER

Guilt and desire battle within Hughe, Lord Oxley's, soul. When the enigmatic leader of the Assassin's Guild learns that the widow of one of his targets is at the mercy of a cruel man, he does the only thing left in his power to do. He marries her. Then the worst thing happens. He falls in love with her. With more than one person trying to kill him and a family to rescue, Hughe needs the help of all his Assassins Guild friends to stay alive and keep his wife from learning the truth. Because he knows, and dreads, what will happen when she discovers what he did.

In this gritty and gripping new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Eve Dallas fights to save the innocent—and serve justice to the guilty—on the streets of New York.

Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads—and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support.

Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.


Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances...
