Husband. Father. Son. Earl. Rupert Manning has thoroughly lost his way. Already resigned to a loveless marriage, he never expected that to be taken away from him too when his wife is murdered. Implicated her death unless he can clear his name, he’s determined to uncover her murderer and the secrets of her life—so that he too might be free to live the life he should have fought for.

Five years ago Angelo Marinari limped away from his life gravely wounded and hid from everyone he’d ever known and loved. Now earning his way as a fighter and entertainer, Angelo is resigned to his life until fate lands the love of his life at his feet—bloody and beaten and breathtakingly defiant. Saving Lord Bracknell complicates everything but is he strong enough to abandon the earl twice when he and his son are in grave danger?

"Regency Romance with a modern sensibility
I love Regency Romance, but I adore Tessa Candle’s books. She never fails to deliver an action-packed romp through London and the English countryside, featuring unique and totally relatable heroines, irresistible love interests, and a cast of family, friends and villains that thoroughly captivates. And there’s always tea. Very hot tea."
–Ev Bishop, USA Today bestselling author

Can the nosy marquess solve the riddle of the widow’s past before her enemy finds her?

The mysterious and desperate Widow Colling is not all she seems. She is not even the Widow Colling. But she can hardly be blamed for assuming false identities: it is the only thing keeping her alive.

 

Her mission is simple. She must only avoid detection, dodge the merciless pursuit of the most notorious madam in London, and stay alive until her twenty-first year. Then she can get her life back—or at least make a new one for herself, perhaps even have the home she has always longed for. 

The interfering marquess-next-door is not making it easy for her, however. He is determined to find her out, and she will do anything to evade him, including hiding in plain sight, right beneath his patrician nose. This subterfuge may conceal her face, but it exposes her heart. When she discovers she no longer wishes to hide, will she risk revealing herself to him and put her future happiness, her very life, under his power?

Frobisher, the self-indulgent Marquess of Fenimore, is also not all he seems. A resolute bachelor, he poses as a dour woman-hating curmudgeon to repel the incessant onslaught of ruthless debutantes and pushy mothers. But going into hiding at his country estate leaves him utterly bored.

The case of the vanishing widow presents a charming diversion. He loves a mystery and secretly cannot resist the allure of the one woman who decidedly does not want his attention. When he discovers the heroine behind the mask, she will challenge his own identity and shatter all his pretenses. But will she also shatter his heart with one final deception and the ultimate disappearing act?

Three Masks and a Marquess is a full length Steamy Regency Romance novel and Book 3 in the Parvenues & Paramours series. Bedroom doors wide open—but not until the characters have earned it.

 OBSESSION (Regency Lovers 2) is the 2nd book in Amazon #1 & USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW Regency series, Regency Lovers.
Author’s note: The books in the Regency Lovers series are steaming hot!

Three years ago Lord Alexander Stirling, younger brother of the Duke of Hawkwood, had been shocked to learn he had been made the guardian of fifteen-year-old Miss Amanda Fullerton, the daughter of a man he had once served with in the army. Having absolutely no room in his bachelor life for a young ward Alex immediately enrolled Amanda into Miss Marchment’s School for Young Ladies, and apart from paying the school fees, had promptly forgotten about her.

Unfortunately, he has now received a letter from Miss Marchment informing him Amanda Fullerton is now past the age for continuing as a pupil at her school. The headmistress now requires Alex’s instruction as to whether Amanda should remain at the school as one of the teachers or be returned to him.

There was no question in Alex’s mind that Amanda Fullerton should remain at the school.

Having spent the past three years languishing in the strict confines of Miss Marchment’s school Amanda had no intention of remaining there a moment longer that she had to. Nor did she intend being forced to do so, by the headmistress, or the man who was her guardian but had not so much as visited her at the school once nor requested she ever join him for the holidays.

As far as Amanda is concerned Lord Alexander Stirling has avoided his responsibilities for quite long enough.

She was completely unprepared for the shock of arriving at Lord Stirling’s London home and finding him in bed with an equally naked and beautiful red-haired woman.

Alex is furious at the manner in which his ward has chosen to take it upon herself to arrive completely unannounced and uninvited at his residence in London. That anger is added to by his feeling completely wrong-footed by the timing of Amanda ’s intrusion into that bachelor establishment.

But having arrived, Amanda Fullerton refuses to leave, and without resorting to actually physically removing her, Alex has no choice but to accept his beautiful and disobedient ward is here to stay. An acceptance that is immediately complicated by the unexpected desire Alex quickly realizes he feels for his ward.

When a series of “accidents” put Amanda’s life in danger Alex finds himself stepping up to the role of guardian and protector when he would far rather be Amanda’s lover.

The beautiful Vanessa Shotworth was being made extremely unhappy at the way she was being treated by her stepmother while her beloved father was away in India with his Regiment.
When she was late for breakfast because she had been out riding on a lovely summer's morning, she was humiliated by her stepmother by being told to scrub the kitchen floor or she will not be given anything to eat.
Vanessa then decided to run away to her relatives in the North of England, having elicited the help of the faithful family butler, Bates.
She sets out on her adored horse, Samson, and had not gone far when she stumbled into a group of highwaymen preparing for their evening meal in a wood.
Initially she was frightened, but the Chief highwayman, who was well-spoken and who had obviously had a good education, offered to accompany her on her journey North and make sure that she came to no harm.
It was when they were near the estate belonging to the Marquis of Westfield that the Chief highwayman told Vanessa that the Marquis was looking for a Governess for his very difficult niece aged twelve, who was impossible to teach and previous Governesses had left in despair after a very short time in the job.
How Vanessa secures the position as Governess at Westfield Castle with no references.
And how she manages to tame the difficult niece with charm and subtlety and encourages her to ride and dance.
And what happens when Vanessa's cruel stepmother eventually catches up with her.
And how unexpectedly she finds love in what can only be described as a strange way is all told in this unusual romance by BARBARA CARTLAND.
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?
