Brazen Brides series, book 2

Lady Fiona Hollingsworth has never done a brazen thing in her life. Desperate to obtain a huge ransom to save her brother from bandits, the lovely lady boldly offers herself to the richest man in the kingdom. In exchange for the money, she will marry a man not of the Ton. He may not be of her circle and she may have only met him once, but she's unable to dispel the handsome Cit from her thoughts.

 Nicholas Birmingham, the pillar the London Stock Exchange, is accustomed to having women fall at his feet, but the beautiful Lady Fiona Hollingsworth? He flatly turns her down. He's always vowed to marry for love, and he's clearly aware that Lady Fiona is not in love with him. But once she's out of his reach and he knows she'll offer herself to another, he relents. He goes to her, apologizes, and asks for her hand--and her compliant body--in his marriage bed.

Neither of them are prepared for the passion that ignites between them, nor is either prepared to admit their powerful love.

Having never left Upper Barrington in her twenty years, orphan Miss Emma Hastings is  overjoyed when the uncle she's never met invites her to come live with him in London. Everything about living in the Capital lures her. She doesn't even mind sharing her seat in the mail coach with a gargantuan man whose belly rests on his lap. Even when her uncle fails to meet her at the posting inn in London, she's too exhilarated over the city's sights and sounds to be worried. After many hours pass and her uncle does not collect her, she determines to lug her trunk behind her as she struggles through London's streets at night to find her uncle's home.

Spurned by his mistress and vowing to never love again, Adam Birmingham, whose family is the richest in Britain, decides to get very drunk. As he's staggering home, he takes pity on a very small young lady who's lugging a very large trunk behind her. In the rain. Her destination is the home of his next-door neighbor, but no one answers the bell. Adam is compelled to ask the young woman to spend the night at his home. Promptly after showing her the chamber in which she'll sleep, Adam passes out on her chaise. It's not until the following morning he remembers that the lady's uncle has died.

When Adam learns that Emma cannot return to Upper Barrington and that she has nowhere to go, he offers marriage to the hysterical lady. His heart is so shattered, he will never love again. Why not make this helpless orphan happy? Soon after they wed, they become convinced that someone has forged her uncle's will--and likely murdered her uncle. Their resolve to bring the murderer to justice jeopardizes Emma's life. Knowing she's in danger brings out Adam's protective instincts--and something far deeper, something he'd thought to never feel again. . .
