DANGEROUS MASQUERADE COLLECTION - Enjoy three of award-winning author Miriam Minger's historical romances in one dangerously exciting boxed set: The Brigand Bride, The Temptress Bride, and The Impostor Bride! 


“Five stars . . . should be at the top of your shopping list! Miriam Minger is a fifty-carat jewel.” – Affaire de Coeur

THE BRIGAND BRIDE - When Maddie Fraser’s father was killed fighting for Bonnie Prince Charles, she swore to avenge his death. Hooded and disguised, she led a series of daring raids against the forces of the Crown—vowing to love no man until the English invaders were driven from her beloved Scottish Highlands.

Captain Garrett Marshall was entrusted with the capture of the mysterious brigand called “Black Jack.” But the azure-eyed beauty hidden beneath the bandit’s manly garb tested Garrett’s loyalty to his King. Inflamed by a desire he could not ignore, the handsome officer would wed his bewitching enemy to save her from the gallows. But first he’d have to quell her hatred…and conquer her heart.

**Romance Writers of America RITA Award finalist for Best Historical Romance**

THE TEMPTRESS BRIDE - Kassandra whirled to face the arrogant military man she’d hoped never to see again, remembering all too clearly his kisses that lingered like molten honey on her lips. To admit it was her innocence he’d stolen in a moment of blazing passion would ruin her father’s diplomatic career and forever destroy her reputation.

Stefan nearly shouted in triumph. He’d searched throughout Vienna for the beguiling tavern wench who had aroused him past endurance, and here she stood like a shimmering goddess...no tavern wench but a lady of the Imperial court. He must have her--he would have her!—if only to safeguard her honor by making her his wife.

THE IMPOSTOR BRIDE - With a heavy heart, spirited but low-born Susanna Guthrie agrees to honor the deathbed request of the wealthy young woman who rescued her from a life of poverty. Masquerading as her benefactress, Susanna travels to the Virginia colonies to take the dying heiress’ place as head of the sprawling tobacco plantation Briarwood…and to “marry wisely.”

Once, she would have welcomed the attentions of handsome Adam Thornton. But now, consorting with a “hired hand” is unthinkable—though the raw, sensual power of the rugged plantation manager leaves Susanna breathless. Driven by a desire for vengeance, Adam is ruthlessly determined to win both Briarwood and its beautiful new mistress—only to be undone by a soul inflamed with passion…and a heart ennobled by love.

OPERATION HERO

Why, then, can she not stop thinking about the handsome new doctor who just arrived in her parish?


Adam Whitaker never expected a lovely country miss to turn his carefully constructed world upside down overnight. What has become of the restrained composure that he’d honed during years of medical study after escaping the demons of his past? Yet he learns that she will be leaving Cornwall soon, her head filled with romantic hopes and dreams. Will the woman who has bewitched him realize in time that what she seeks is right in front of her?

OPERATION HERO

SECOND CHANCES, an anthology featuring four reissued novellas by New York Times bestselling author, Mary Balogh.

Another Dream
Eleanor Thompson, spinster owner and headmistress of a girls' school in Bath, finds herself somewhat lonely and not as happy with her chosen way of life as she had expected. Then, on her way to help celebrate the birthday of the Duke of Bewcastle, her brother-in-law, she is stranded by a storm at a country inn, where she indulges in a brief, sweet flirtation with a gentleman who is also stranded there with his two young children. Neither adult realizes that they are bound for the same house party.

The Treasure Hunt
Constance Manning is eagerly looking forward to her twentieth birthday, when her secret engagement to the man who has been her dearest friend all her life is finally to be revealed to her family and friends. He is having second thoughts, however, and persuades his brother to go in his stead and make his excuses—the brother who has long loved Constance without her knowledge.

The Forbidden Daffodils
For five years Kate Buchanan has been living in exile with her aunts in a remote part of Wales. She has come to love them and the place and has convinced herself that she is happy with her quiet life. But her hard-won peace is put to the test when the Marquess of Ashendon takes up residence nearby—the very man who caused her banishment.

The Betrothal Ball
The Earl of Dearborne had returned to his country home to host a house party and pay court to the beautiful daughter of one of his guests. Laura Melfort, his ward’s governess, is everything he most abhors in a woman. She is intelligent and well-read as well as being plainly dressed and unalluring. Yet it is the governess to whose company he finds himself repeatedly drawn. And it is the governess with whom he chooses to waltz at his own betrothal ball.

Four sweet regency romances from a bestselling author...


A Rake's Redemption

Her brother's best friend might be a rake, but she's about to be his ruin...

Claire is the dutiful, proper Cleveland sister, and the only one who's not embroiled in a scandal. Until now. With her sister's marriage to an earl, the weight of responsibility to save her family has been lifted from her shoulders, and for the first time in her life Claire is free. A rebelliousness she's long denied has her acting out in ways she would never have imagined. Like chasing her brother through the dark streets of London... and kissing her brother's best friend and notorious rake, Lord Nicholas.


A Duke's Distraction

He's looking for a duchess. She's looking for...well, anyone but him.

Georgie Cleveland is well aware that true love exists. She may have even found it in the handsome young gentleman she's set her sights on. Unfortunately, her rival has the same designs on society's most sought-after poet. Now Georgie is forced to go to extremes to catch his eye. She could make him jealous, for example, by feigning interest in her sister's brother-in-law, the Duke of Roxborough. It is all for show, of course. Roxborough is far too dull for her tastes. So boring, so stodgy...yet, such a surprisingly passionate kisser.


A Gentleman's Gamble

Eliza may never forgive the man who nearly ruined her sister, but that doesn't mean she can't marry him.

Eliza Beucraft is in a pickle. She'd thought she'd successfully avoided marriage altogether, but her father has other ideas. Unless she wants to be stuck with the cruel gentleman of her father's choosing, she must find her own husband. Preferably one who needs her dowry and is willing to take a risk on her admittedly ludicrous plan. There's only one man who comes to mind. A man she despises after his devilish deeds two years ago, but one who she knows cannot resist a wager. Now if only she can remember that his kisses aren't real and that this marriage is only for show...


A Lady's Luck

Henri lives to uncover secrets, but this man has everything to hide...

Lady Henrietta Bloomfield has built a fortune gambling on the utterly predictable foibles of her peers. When her latest wager fails thanks to the stodgy Earl of Colefax and his surprisingly rash behavior, she's more intrigued than disappointed. It seems there's more to the upright earl than meets the eye, and Henri makes it her mission to discover who he really is. The more she gets to know the real Alistair, with his dark passion and his mysterious missions, the more she finds him utterly, irresistibly appealing. And what she feels when he holds her in his arms? That's enough to make her doubt her sanity. No rational woman should lose her heart to a man who's determined to ruin her fun.


Please Note: A Rake's Redemption was formerly titled A Rake's Ruin.
