Wagers Gone Awry

Blue Rose Romance
3

Brooke Culpepper resigned herself to spinsterhood when she turned down the only marriage proposal she’d likely ever receive to care for her family. After her father dies, a distant cousin inherits the estate and becomes their guardian but permits Brooke to act in his stead.

Heath, Earl of Ravensdale is none-too-pleased to discover five young women call the dairy farm he won and intends to sell, their home. Desperate, pauper poor, and with nowhere to go, Brooke proposes a wager. His stakes? The farm. Hers? Her virtue. The land holds no interest for Heath, but Brooke does and he accepts her challenge.

Brooke loses, and her devastation is compounded when the cousin arrives, intending to haul the Culpepper misses off to London. Heath astounds himself and proposes in order to apply for guardianship of the other girls.

Does Brooke dare marry the handsome stranger who’d been bent on compromising her? Will Heath regret his impulsive gesture, or will unexpected love flourish?

This book can be read as a stand-alone, but is part of the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper series.

Can a beautiful spinster trust love again? Especially with the rouge who broke her heart the first time?

Caution: This humorous historical Regency romance contains a dashing, pessimistic rogue, a strong-minded heroine with a temperament as fiery as her red hair, an audacious aunt who says precisely what she thinks, and an uppity villainess who gets her comeuppance at last.

Olivia Kingsley didn’t expect to fall in love and receive a secret marriage proposal two weeks into her first Season. However, one dance with Allen Wimpleton and her fate is sealed. Or so she thinks until her eccentric and ailing father announces he’s moving the family to the Caribbean for a year. Distraught at her leaving, and unaware of her father’s ill health, Allen demands she choose—him or her father.

Heartbroken at Allen's callousness, but thankful he’s revealed his true nature before she married him, Olivia turns her back on their love. The year becomes three, enough time for her broken heart to heal, and after her father dies, Olivia returns to England. Coming face to face with an embittered Allen, she realizes she never purged him from her heart, and once again the flames of passion ignite. But is it too late for their love?

Buy this charming Regency Romances collection of heartwarming happily ever afters for delightful, romantic escapes into Regency England’s historical past.

A Kiss for Miss Kingsley: Can a beautiful spinster trust love again? Especially if the same man asks? A sweet story of love relinquished and redeemed as once betrothed Allen Wimpleton and Olivia Kingsley meet again after a three year separation only to discover their love is stronger than ever.

Bride of Falcon: When is love not enough? A clumsy noblewoman resigned to spinsterhood determines to win the heart of the man she’s loved since girlhood—a penniless soldier who returns from India, a disfigured and disillusioned.

Her Scandalous Wish: A marriage offer obligated by duty; an acceptance compelled by desperation. A stolen moonlight kiss, the threat of a duel, and the subsequent scandal result in a compulsory marriage offer and an equally unenthusiastic acceptance.

To Tame a Scoundrel’s Heart: Could you give up what you’re most passionate about forever? When a privateer-turned-duke enlists help finding a bride from a woman intended for another, neither is prepared for the resulting havoc.  

The Wallflower’s Wicked Wager: He loved her beyond anything and everything—precisely why he couldn’t ever marry her. Since an explosion ravaged Captain Morgan Le Draco’s face, he’s fortified himself behind an impenetrable rampart of cynicism and distrust. Scorned and ridiculed most of her adult life, Shona, Lady Atterberry is reconciled to spinsterhood, until Morgan saves her life, and neither can deny the immediate, powerful, and sensual attraction that sparks between them.
“Delightful, dazzling, and oh-so delicious.” ~Cheryl Bolen, NYT Bestselling Author

Faced with an impossible choice, could you devastate someone you love?

Caution: This book contains a philandering hero with a heart of gold, a fearless heroine adamant she’ll decide her own destiny, a passel of roguish dukes and the daring damsels determined not to be seduced by them, and unforeseen twists that will keep you turning page after page.

Marriage—an unpleasant obligation
A troublesome addendum to his father’s will requires Victor, Duke of Sutcliffe to marry before his twenty-seventh birthday. That doesn’t mean he intends to alter his pleasure-seeking lifestyle. Mere weeks before he must wed, he ventures home, intent on finding the most biddable, forgettable miss in all of Essex. Except the first woman he encounters stirs far more than his interest, and Theadosia Brentwood is anything but unremarkable or dowdy.

Marriage—an impossible choice
Against her better judgement, and despite her father promising her hand to a man she detests, Theadosia clandestinely meets with Victor. Though she’s far beneath his station and aware he must marry soon, she can’t deny her growing fascination. When Victor unexpectedly proposes, Thea must make an unbearable decision—refuse to marry her father’s pick and elope with Victor, who wouldn’t wed at all except to save his fortune. If she does, her betrothed will reveal a scandalous secret, sending her father to prison and rendering her sister and mother homeless.

A dour duke and a wistful wallflower—an impossible match until fate intervenes one enchanted night.

Caution: This Historical Regency Romance contains a duke who literally thumbs his nose at society, a sweet and intelligent wallflower with a secret dream, a villainess worthy of a fairy tale, and two delightful match-making dowagers.

A dour duke.
Jules, the Sixth Duke of Dandridge disdains Society and all its trappings, preferring the country’s solitude and peace. Already jaded and cynical since the woman he loved died years ago, he’s become even more so since unexpectedly inheriting a dukedom’s responsibilities and finding himself the target of every husband-hunting vixen in London.

A wistful wallflower.
Forever in her stunning sister’s shadow, Jemmah Dament has adored Jules from afar for years—since as children they were the best of friends. She daren’t dream she can win a duke’s heart any more than she hopes to escape the life of servitude imposed on her by an uncaring mother. Jemmah knows full well, Jules is too far above her station. Besides, his family has already selected his perfect duchess: a poised, polished, exquisite blueblood. 

But one enchanted night.
A chance encounter reunites Jules and Jemmah, resulting in a passionate interlude neither can forget. Jules realizes he wants more—much more—than Jemmah’s sweet kisses or her warming his bed. He must somehow convince her to gamble on a dour duke. But can Jemmah trust a rogue promised to another? One who’s sworn never to love again?
