She hides her heart behind a thick skin. He’s the only one who sees right through it.

Lucy Sinclair Wilcott is a widow and the subject of public scorn. She knows her first marriage ruined her, and she couldn’t remarry if she wanted to. A façade of bland kindness is the only thing that keeps her sane in the face of thinly-veiled tabloid insults. She wants nothing more than to save enough money to move to a cottage of her own to keep her sister safe from their father’s poor judgment.

The Marquess of Thrale, a visitor to the Sinclair home, picks up on Lucy’s emptiness, but he soon realizes it’s an act. Everything he believes about the beautiful widow is wrong. She’s a brilliant, amusing, and arousing woman of deep honor.

As Lucy’s long-absent feelings of desire surge back, Lord Thrale must convince her that she’s everything he wants in a lover, for the rest of his life.

A Notorious Ruin is the second book in the Sinclair Sisters saga, a series of Regency romance novels. If you like unpredictable plots, refreshing dynamics, and sensual attraction, then you’ll love Carolyn Jewel’s tale of passion.

Young, handsome and very rich the Marquis of Harlington has just ended yet another unsatisfactory love affair that has left him feeling bored with women and resigned to the fact that true love simply does not exist amongst the upper class echelons of London, which are his usual habitat. Casting around for a speedy escape route he is offered the prefect exit when the Prime Minister asks him to travel to Egypt and report on the Suez Canal, which is currently under construction. Delighted, the Marquis visits his neighbour, Lord Durham, and is horrified to overhear him threatening to beat his daughter Delisia unless she agrees to an arranged marriage with an ugly, but rich French Comte. Leaving Lord Durham's house in a state of moral outrage, the Marquis is aware that there is a blue ribbon peeping out of the box at the back of his chaise but decides not to investigate until he is well away from the wrath of Lord Durham. Upon discovering the beautiful Delisia, who is the owner of the ribbon and running away from her dreadful father, he agrees to take her with him to Egypt masquerading as his young niece. But Delisia is a young woman full of surprises. Not only is she fluent in Arabic, she is also intelligent and blessed with the gift of second sight. Arriving in a politically volatile Egypt, Delisia quickly becomes indispensible despite her young age. But is the Marquis merely fascinated by her views of life and unusual intellect? Or are his feelings deepening into something that he believes would never happen to him?
Trouble is no match for a lady of the extended Worthington family—except when it comes in the form of a most irresistible gentleman . . .

Lady Charlotte Carpenter’s brother-in-law has put an infamous brothel owner out of business—yet it is Charlotte who suffers the consequences. Abducted by thugs and held at an inn, she is plotting her escape when she’s suddenly rescued by a dashing gentleman. Only afterward does she realize she’s seen him before—with two courtesans! Unwilling to tarry with such a man, Charlotte makes her second escape. But it is too late to repair her reputation . . .

A known gossip has spied Charlotte’s movements, and his report is speeding through the rumor mill. Soon, everyone knows that Charlotte spent the night with Constantine, Marquis of Kenilworth. And everyone agrees the only answer is marriage—including Constantine himself, his overjoyed mother—and his mistress! But Charlotte’s abductors aren’t finished with her yet. Now Constantine will do anything to protect the spirited woman he loves and win her heart . . .

Praise for The Worthingtons

“The happy and chaotic family life that takes place around the edges of the love story is what makes this novel so delightful. A fun read.”
– Kirkus Reviews on It Started with A Kiss

“Quinn offers a refreshing take on historical-romance conventions. . . . Grace Burrowes’ readers will also appreciate the intelligent commentary on issues of the day.”
– Booklist on When a Marquis Chooses a Bride
