The Brides of Bath series, Book 1

For six long years Thomas Moreland has dreamed of the beautiful young noblewoman who rescued him from death. While amassing his fortune in India, not a day passed he did not recall Felicity's fair loveliness, did not recall the silken tones of her sweet voice, did not desire to possess her. 

Now a widow, Felicity Harrison does not recognize the handsome nabob as the young man left for dead by highwayman years earlier. Though she wants nothing more than to snub the arrogant man who promises to rescue her family from financial ruin in exchange for presenting his sister to Society, she cannot snub him. She must force herself to bear his company. But the longer she is with him, the more she has to force herself to remain true to her dead husband's memory. Why is it the humbly born Thomas Moreland possesses more nobility that any man of her class? And why is it she finds it harder and harder to mourn a dead man when Thomas's virility awakens her deepest desires?

 The Beauty and the Scholar. . . 

The Brides of Bath are Back! Book 5 in The Brides of Bath series.



Certain the "smart" Steffington twin is the person who can help her
recover her late husband's nearly priceless stolen Chaucer manuscript,
Catherine Bexley tearfully persuades the scholar to assist her. A deal
is struck. She's particularly pleased that the Doctor of Letters is not
interested in seducing her because she's finished with men (owing to her
late husband's multitude of unfortunate alliances with. . .doxies).
Regaining the manuscript and its subsequent sale will give her
independence to ensure she never has to marry again.



Once he learns the poor, delicate widow is in danger of losing her
heavily mortgaged home if they cannot find the valuable hologram, Dr.
Melvin Steffington vows to do everything in his power to restore the
rare Canterbury Tales to her. It's obvious the pretty little thing needs
a man to help her. Not normally the twin to take note of pretty little
things, Melvin can't help but to observe that Mrs. Bexley's physical
appearance is much like the beauties so admired by his twin brother.



He hadn’t counted on the fact he would have to pose as her husband
as they race against the banker's ticking clock. He hadn’t counted on
the mysterious thief attempting to kill him. Most of all, he hadn't
counted on how close he would become to the lovely widow or how the
kissing of said widow would become the most pleasant experience in his
entire seven and twenty years. . .
