Lady Viola Oberbrook only wanted to forget the ill-fated early morning duel that took the lives of two young, wealthy, promising men of the ton and sent her fleeing for her father’s country estate. Eight years later, she has her life in order: a fulfilling business, a few trusted friends, and no plans to return to London society. What she doesn’t expect is to come face to face with her past.
A Lord Betrayed by One…
Brock Spencer, Earl of Haversham, only wants vengeance. Recently returned from his military service to the King, his plans include repairing his family estate, finding a bride, and destroying the girl responsible for the untimely death of his twin brothers. What he doesn’t anticipate is falling in love with the only woman who should never be part of his future.
An Impossible Match, Destined to Be…
To catch a killer, a prince makes a most inappropriate bet…
And promptly loses to a lady who's seduced by scandal…
Miss Catherine 'Kitty' Culpepper is no wallflower. She's headed up her father's scandalous newspaper for well over a year now, helping King Bertram's undercover operatives catch the realm's most notorious anti-monarchists. But when she accepts a bet at a scandalous gaming hell--to join a covert royal regiment--and wins, she comes face-to-face with Prince Alexander, the kingdom's number one rogue. Unfortunately, Alex is also Kitty's secret beau. And what she wants from Alex is far beyond what he's offering in exchange for her official winnings…
Prince Alexander Nicholas Albert Richard, known to his friends simply as Alex, has never met a woman he couldn't win over. He's also never met a woman who's wanted a man's job. That is until tonight, when he encounters his own little minx at a gaming hell. Now the chit wants to join his covert organization, so she can hunt down her brother's killer, a task Alex has no intention of allowing. He'd much rather have the beautiful Kitty in his bed than armed at his side, tracking assassins and the like. But denying Catherine only leads to the woman taking up her own crusade. And once she's crossed paths with Alex's target, Catherine becomes the brute's next victim.
Can this PRINCE OF ROGUES save the woman of his heart before it's too late?
Violet Waterfield, the widowed Countess of Cambury, on the other hand, is entirely respectable, and she’d like to stay that way. But Violet has a secret that is beyond ruinous, one that ties her irrevocably to England’s most infamous scoundrel: Sebastian’s theories aren’t his. They’re hers.
So when Sebastian threatens to dissolve their years-long conspiracy, she’ll do anything to save their partnership...even if it means opening her vulnerable heart to the rake who could destroy it for good.

TO SAVE HER FAMILY, SHE MUST BE VERY, VERY BAD...
Miss Judith Pengarden has a problem: her family is in debt, and soon will lose their home. What's a dutiful sister to do to save her loved ones from ruination? Why, steal a few items from an aristocrat's house--items he'll surely never miss--and sell them to pay her family's debts. Luckily for her, she meets Simon Montgomery, the new Earl of Cartwright, a recluse familiar with antiquities. He can help her keep her family from debtor's prison, and he might just claim her heart too. Except instead of stealing from Simon's neighbor, she breaks into the wrong house...
Simon is determined to change the way the world sees his family, even if it means he can no longer pursue his dreams of being a scholar to take on his new title. When a thief breaks into his home and steals a precious family heirloom, he vows to get the item back. The last thing he expects is that the girl he met at a garden party is a thief! When Jude is discovered with his possessions, how will she ever convince him that despite her deception, her love for him is the truth?
Lucas Hartfeld, the Earl of Maddox, has been summoned by his parents, the Marquis and Marchioness of Bowmont, to attend a holiday party in the wilds of the country, far from his London townhouse. He suspects they command his attendance for far different reasons than a simple country party. When a storm strands his carriage, he’s forced to seek shelter at the only home for miles around, a local manor called Helton House.
When Lady Pippa is reluctant to admit him, he does what he’s been raised to do—demand she provide him and his servants with shelter until the storm passes. But the beautiful woman draws his interest far more than he’s willing to admit. Can Lucas find a way out of the predicament his parents are planning?
As Lady Pippa scrutinizes another arrogant, demanding lord, she is bombarded with memories of betrayals in her past. Can she forget those difficult life lessons to claim a Christmastide kiss from a perfect stranger?
After a tragic marriage that stretched on for two decades, Peter is hesitant to marry again.

Their unlikely match stands a chance of giving each of them all the things they never realized they needed.
But trouble abounds when the mine that has provided Peter with his fortune is exhausted and the search for new veins of copper begins. On top of that, Lord William isn’t about to stand by and watch his inheritance disappear. His efforts to drive a wedge between Peter and Mariah cause havoc and heartbreak at Starcross Castle, which will take an act of heroic devotion to overcome as Peter sets out to prove that true love is ageless.
