*Formerly titled WILDBLOSSOM*

"An English Duke and a spirited Wild West beauty - that's a combination you just can't beat! This is a story filled with adventure, humor, and people who are completely out-of place in fascinating places. The characters are enchanting and real and will have you cheering for them throughout every delightful page!" ~ CATHERINE COULTER, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Impetuous, courageous Shelby Matthews moves from Deadwood to Cody, Wyoming to manage her father's new ranch. She plots an outrageous scheme to raise funds for improvements by playing poker.

Cynical Geoffrey Weston, Marquess of Sandhurst, arrives in Wyoming for one last adventure before he submits to an arranged marriage to save the family estates. 

When Geoff steps off the train in Cody, Shelby thinks he'll be an easy mark in her poker game. However, he quickly wins half her ranch and has no intention of letting her out of the bet. It's the beginning of a magical, impossible romance that takes the couple across the sea to England, where Shelby performs with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and Geoff, now a Duke, wrestles with conflicts between duty and the painful longings of his heart.

Author's note: Geoff is the descendant of Andrew Weston, Marquess of Sandhurst, in OF ONE HEART.

"A rootin'-tootin', rollicking romance between a Wild West beauty and a deliciously dangerous Duke. I LOVED it!" ~ New York Times Bestselling Author BERTRICE SMALL

“Looking for a hero to sweep you off your feet? Look no further…” ~ Kathe Robin, ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE

In 1864 Columbia, California, the gold rush is over. Spirited Katie MacKenzie helps her father run a saloon and writes articles for the local newspaper about the Griffin, a Robin Hood-style highwayman who robs the unscrupulous mine owners and gives back to the townspeople. 

Roguish Jack Adams, an adventurer with a dark secret, rides into the sleepy Sierra town one summer day and changes everything.

A powerful attraction smolders and burns between Jack and Katie despite their efforts to resist, but when a tragic death occurs during one of the Griffin's stagecoach robberies, Katie is haunted by thoughts of revenge. 

Can Jack reconcile his life in Columbia with his surprising true identity in San Francisco… and will this couple find their way to happiness in spite of the dangerous secrets that separate them? Journey back to Civil War-era California with Jack, Katie, and historical characters like Samuel Clemens for a passionate & adventurous romance that will keep you turning the pages to the very end!

REVIEW:
“BRIGHTER THAN GOLD delivers what Cynthia Wright fans expect from her unforgettable romances – a tender, sweet, exciting, and sensual story of a love that is so strong nothing can harm it. She skillfully combines accurate historical details, brilliantly evoking the post-goldrush era in Columbia and San Francisco, along with an irresistible deception & disguise romance!” ~ ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE
London’s ballrooms and bedrooms thrive on scandal and decadent pleasure and the summer of 1814 will be no exception for the fourth Distinguished Rogue in Heather Boyd’s regency romances series.

Widowed beauty, Arabella Lawson, Lady Farnsworth, knows the value of independence after being trapped in a marriage that left her unfulfilled. Although she longs for a lover at last, she’s expected to chaperone her flirtatious niece during her first season. However, given the way the girl keeps disappearing every chance she gets, there is little hope of a good or speedy result. While searching for her charge yet again, she blunders into one of Lord Rothwell’s scandalous assignations. This time it’s Arabella’s turn to be on the receiving end of his hungry kisses, and she’s far from prepared to make the most of the opportunity.

Gossip may paint Merrick Bishop, the Earl of Rothwell, as a notorious scoundrel when it comes to women, but this season his intentions are honorable. Duty bound to marry, he’s determined to discreetly court an open-minded bride and prove the gossipmongers wrong by being on his very best behavior… until in his frustration, he mistakenly kisses the wrong lady and discovers that everything about the encounter feels so very right. Merrick never once believed he had a chance with shy Arabella, and when the unthinkable happens, she turns to him not for an affair or hopes of marriage but for his friendship and protection from her own family.

Can a rogue with a reputation for breaking hearts convince a widow who only hopes for an affair that their feelings are not only the stirrings of desire but the beginnings of the deepest and truest love?

*Formerly titled FIREBLOSSOM*

Daniel "Fox" Matthews, sent to Little Bighorn by the president to keep an eye on hot-headed General Custer, is haunted by guilt for a battle outcome he couldn't prevent. The raucous gold town of Deadwood, South Dakota seems like the perfect refuge, although it's located in the Black Hills, sacred land to the same Sioux Indians who decimated Custer's troops.

Madeleine Avery, raised to be a lady in Philadelphia, is appalled when she arrives in Deadwood with her family. Slowly she unbends, coaxed out of her shell by a powerful attraction to Fox and a journey into the world of the Sioux Indians.

IN A RENEGADE'S EMBRACE is a compelling tale of cultures colliding and the bittersweet, tender journey of Fox and Maddie as they discover the secrets of their own hearts.

REVIEWS:
"By including historical figures like Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok, Custer and Crazy Horse, Cynthia Wright adds depth and color to an absolutely wonderful novel!" ~ ROMANTIC TIMES

"Wright weaves history and fiction together skillfully. Maddie is a proper lady who must learn to unbend. Fox is the presidential adviser who's undercover and trying to live with a decision that left him alive while Custer's men died. Like 'Dances With Wolves,' IN A RENEGADE'S EMBRACE paints the Sioux as an idyllic people faced with the end of life as they know it. Wright creates sympathetic Indian characters and populates Deadwood with an array of real-life eccentrics. IN A RENEGADE'S EMBRACE again shows why Wright is one of the country's most popular romance novelists." ~ THE SIOUX FALLS ARGUS LEADER

Author's note: Maddie's grandmother, Susan Hampshire O'Hara, is the daughter of Lion & Meagan from TOUCH THE SUN. She also appears in HER DANGEROUS VISCOUNT as a young woman.
