Elizabeth Bennet has never been happier: she is married—finally!—to her true love, Mr. Darcy.
But when Elizabeth’s youngest sister Lydia reveals scandalous details about what her own husband, Mr. Wickham, expects in bed, Elizabeth begins to fear her wedding night.
She decides she will postpone any further intimacies. After all, isn’t lively conversation as satisfying as anything else between a husband and wife?
Not according to her husband! Will Fitzwilliam Darcy be able to put aside his pride—and break through his innocent bride’s prejudices—in order to woo her?
It might take all his skill, and more than one night, but thankfully, Fitzwilliam Darcy has ways to tempt the love of his life. It turns out, he’s not so very proper once behind closed doors…
This sensual, intimate variation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is full of love, laughter, misunderstandings, steamy scenes…and true love! With its high heat level, it is best enjoyed by readers 18 years of age or older.
But what if Elizabeth has been keeping secrets, too?
It is a time of political turmoil once more as the fading King Edward begins to lose control over his successors and their supporters. There are two potential heirs—possibly more—and doubt over whether the once separate states of Wessex and Mercia will hold together . Despite attempts at pulling him into the political fray, Uhtred of Bebbanburg cares solely about his beloved Northumbria and its continuing independence from southern control.
But an oath is a strong, almost sacred commitment and such a promise had been exchanged between Uhtred and Aethelstan, his onetime companion in arms and now a potential king. Uhtred was tempted to ignore the demands of the oath and stay in his northern fastness, leaving the quarrelling Anglo-Saxons to sort out their own issues. But an attack on him by a leading supporter of one of the candidates and an unexpected appeal for help from another, drives Uhtred with a small band of warriors south, into the battle for kingship—and England’s fate.
