". . . romance with mistaken identities, wicked villians, strong women and men who are strong enough to accept them as equals." ~Shamim Morani

The death of her husband freed Serena Riverton from life as an abused sex-object. Now, her brother plans to sell her to another vile man.

This time, Serena flees, but finds herself stranded and near penniless. When a passing gentleman offers help, Serena accepts, and develops a new plan: become a rich man's mistress so she can leave at any time.

Believing herself barren, Serena initiates a passionate encounter with her rescuer. However, Francis, Lord Middlethorpe is already committed to a sweet-natured lady. He finds Serena refuge with an elderly relative, and must return to his life. Then Serena discovers she's pregnant.

They have no choice but to marry, but assailed by Serena's scheming brothers, Francis's appalled relatives and Serena's painful past, is there any hope for the loving future they both seek?

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Olivia Drake, a steamy Regency romance...

A devoted daughter goes undercover to clear her father’s name...

When her scholarly father is wrongfully accused of being the Wraith, the famed jewel thief who’s been fleecing the aristocratic set of London, Claire Hollybrooke will do anything to clear his name.

Claire suspects he was set up by the noble grandfather she’s never met. Vowing to expose him, she goes undercover as Mrs. Clara Brownley, the chaperone for her cousin, Lady Rosabel. But her plan to be the ‘invisible’ servant quickly falls apart when Simon Croft, Earl of Rockford, who is supposed to be wooing Lady Rosabel, can’t keep his eyes off of the dynamic lady’s maid.

As the Earl of Rockford, Simon must marry to ensure an heir for his name. Under familial pressure, he is reluctantly courting Lady Rosabel...but she pales in comparison to her beautiful and spirited chaperone, the undercover Claire.

Unbeknownst to Claire, Simon secretly works for Bow Street and is the very man who put her father behind bars. As Claire digs deeper into who the real thief is, her time spent with the handsome and rakish Earl of Rockford increasingly distracts her from her mission...even as everything she thought she understood about her father is called into question.

As Simon must make a choice between who his family wants him to marry and the woman his heart desires, Claire must also choose...is her disdain for the aristocracy worth missing out on the love of a lifetime?
