INDECENT (Regency Lovers 1) is the 1st book in USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW Regency series.

Impoverished Miss Emma Harris can hardly believe her good fortune when Adam Stirling, the handsome and imposing Duke of Hawkwood, asks her father for her hand in marriage.

However, she feels thoroughly humiliated when she attends a masked ball that very same evening and sees Hawkwood in a compromising position with a married woman. A very compromising position, in fact it is positively INDECENT.

Angry and upset, Emma confronts Hawkwood with what she saw, accusing him of only wanting to marry her as a shield to his affairs with other women. Accusations the duke immediately disproves.

Half in love with the arrogant Hawkwood, Emma is devastated when she learns the real reason he asked her to marry him.

PRINCE OF SCANDAL is the first book in National Bestselling Author, Angelique Armae's, new Regency series Seduced by Scandal.

A lady in need of a scandal…

To keep up her secret work of rescuing street urchins from falling to ill repute, Lady Eliza Littlefield must escape her pending marriage to the cruel and very puritanical Earl Meyock. Unfortunately, only a ruined reputation will give her the results she's seeking. And it must be a most damaging event such as slipping into a brothel and being found out. But when she accidentally lands in the bed of Freddie Baine, Countavia's most notorious royal, the only person needing rescuing is herself.
 

Crosses paths with the one prince who can't afford another sin…

As the youngest son of King Bertram II of Countavia, Frederick Arthur Louis David is a prince with a problem. Not only is he working with his six brothers to track down and expose the realm's underground anti-monarchists threatening to bring down the Crown, but he's also on the hunt for the kingdom's most notorious enemy--a cold blooded spy who is murdering Countavia's most prominent peers. Which is why the last thing he needs is to be saddled with a wife. Especially one as wild and as unpredictable as Lady Eliza Littlefield. But when he's found with her in his bed at Madame Harpcourt's--a safe house being used to conduct his mission under the guise of a brothel--he has no choice but to reel in the troublesome Eliza. Which poses problems in itself since he's secretly been attracted to the woman since they were children. But with a raging mad earl on his case, his covert mission on the brink, and a killer on the loose, what choice does he have? Keeping Eliza safe is a must. If only he knew he could keep her safe from himself--Countavia's notorious PRINCE OF SCANDAL--the situation might not be so sinful.

 SEBASTIAN is the first book in National Bestselling Author Angelique Armae’s Immortal Valentine series, a spin-off from The Paradisian Chronicles. The Valentine brothers are Hell's sexiest bad boys. They're also Lucifer's most defiant nephews, working for Paradise and protecting mankind. They're half-fallen angel, half-mortal, save for Sebastian who is a triplicate soul. He's one-third vampire. He's also a rebel and fights Hell's dope dealers daily, trying to destroy their lethal narcotics trade, specifically the flow of Crypt Candy on earth.

Sophie Gates isn’t your average Criminal Profiler.  She’s a Paradisian Scholar—an immortal human trained in the ways of Heaven and Hell. She’s also a member of the archangel Gabriel’s Gothic Garrison.  So when a fellow Scholar turns up dead of a supernatural drug overdose, Sophie is called in to investigate the crime.  She believes the killer to be a Diabolus Sacratus--a revered demonic drug lord specializing in Crypt Candy, a highly addictive, and sometimes lethal, hallucinogenic distributed among Lucifer’s army. 

To proceed with her analysis and help track down the murderer, Sophie is forced to work with the sexy-as-sin Sebastian Valentine, a Nephilim vampire with a stake in eNVee Laboratories. As the pharmaceutical company catering to paranormal clientele this side of Heaven and Hell, eNVee Labs is the only company on Earth capable of manufacturing Crypt Candy.  Unfortunately, the main component of the drug is a residual substance found in coffins and crypts inhabited by Nephilim vampires. With evidence building against her newly assigned partner, Sophie is quick to make Sebastian Valentine her number one suspect.  If only she didn’t find the man as addictive as the drug he’s capable of manufacturing…

Born to a fallen angel and a mortal mother, Sebastian Valentine is a prince of Hell. As a defrocked Templar, he escaped execution thanks to a Vampiric relative, and now exists as a Triplicate soul—angel, human and vampire. His hopes of redemption are slim.  The only way to save him from eternal damnation is to find the one woman, deemed by fate, to be his life mate.  To do so, he’d have to convince her to share his Hellish soul.  And that’s one sacrifice, he’s certain, no sane person would dare make. 

Paying back a debt owed to the archangel Gabriel, Sebastian joins forces with Sophie to hunt down a demonic killer.   But to find this unholy criminal, Sebastian will have to reveal secrets of Sophie’s past she’s not aware of, a dark legacy that will put her next on the hit list of the Diabolus Sacratus they’re hunting…

Lady Sally Derwent is an unusual Regency Miss, in that at the age of five and twenty, she is still unwed and determined to remain so. She has no desire to relinquish her freedom in order to become the property of some unworthy gentleman. Nor is she willing to part with the independence she acquired at the age of one and twenty, when she came into the fortune bequeathed to her by her paternal grandmother.


There is also the matter of the other part of the inheritance her grandmother left to her.
A scandalous collection of erotica. Books, paintings, statues, sketches, most of which make Sally blush to look at, but which fascinate her nonetheless.

Attending the wedding of a close friend, Sally takes one look at Nicholas Sefton, Marquis of Oxbridge, with his unfashionably long dark hair, piercing green eyes, and magnificently muscular body, and knows he is the missing piece from her vast collection of erotica. Not the man himself but the sketches she wishes to make of him. Nude.

Nicholas Sefton has long been bored with both the restrictions of society and the people in it. The war with Napoleon is over, and although he is the owner of several large estates, they are all being run very capably without his assistance. Likewise his townhouse in London. He is currently in need of a diversion in his life, something, or someone, to occupy or entertain him.

Lady Sally Derwent’s outrageous request, to sketch him naked, is beyond any amusement Nicholas might have imagined for his immediate future.

The lady herself is beautiful, the attraction between the two of them mutual, but she nevertheless declares herself unavailable. A situation Nicholas intends to change at the earliest opportunity.

Unrealized by either of them, someone close to them wishes Lady Sally Derwent dead. Sooner rather than later.

Will the Marquis and Sally become so caught up in their heated attraction to one another they remain unaware of the danger until it is too late?

Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Unlaced series are steaming hot and the language sometimes explicit.
