1869 – Matthew Gentry joined the Confederate Army at eighteen years of age after an argument with his father, leaving Paradise, his Virginia home and famed horse breeding stables, for the fields of Gettysburg.  Having survived the War Between the States, Gentry is haunted by the violence and inhumanity of the war. He continues to roam the country long after the conflict is over, finding solace in the arms of soiled doves and at the bottom of whiskey bottles. Finally traveling home after learning of a family tragedy, he nearly loses his life in a spring-flooded riverbed.

Annie Campbell, lone survivor of her family, lives at a remote farm near the North River, raising pigs and trying to grow enough to feed herself, and to stay out of the cross hairs of the Thurmans, violent men who run the town of Bridgewater. Annie’s secrets threaten her safety, even as she rescues and nurses Matthew Gentry.

Matthew knows he must return to Paradise, to grieve with his family. Will his heart lead him back to Bridgewater and Annie Campbell?

He’s royalty.  She’s a commoner.  Their association has no future.

Bronwen Davies is not only disinterested in marrying well, she has turned her back upon society, to live as freely as she can in the wilds of Northallerton, where she lives with her cousin Lilly and Lilly’s husband, Jasper.

Jasper’s half-brother, the Archeduke Edvard Christoffer of Silkeborg, arrives at Northallerton without warning, asking for temporary sanctuary from the pressures of his public life.  There, he finds Bronwen, a most distracting diversion.  Only, Bronwen’s unexpected opinions and forthright manner prove to be far more seductive than a simple distraction should be…

Praise for Mask of Nobility:

Once again I fell under Tracy Cooper-Posey’s spell with this story.

Reading this book gave me another very late night since I couldn’t stop reading it. I really should know better than to start one of Tracy’s books at night.

Tracy Cooper-Posey continues to both amaze and please me with her historical romances. Her books have raised the bar for what I enjoy in this genre.

A story where love conquers through the highs and lows of one's life and family is there to hold you up, is a story worth reading.

Tracy Cooper-Posey has a talent for making the characters so real, in a succinct way, that draws the reader's empathy while moving the action and adventure along at an exciting pace.

I grew up just outside Northallerton so I could picture the black faced sheep and the dales where this beautiful love story began. Tracy has done her homework!

There were a lot of laughs and even some tears. It seems you experience every emotion in the pages of her books.

I love it when a romance is more than just a romance that's why I adored reading the story of free spirited, unconventional Bronwen.

I loved the wit and humor throughout the book.

He is less than a commoner and should be beneath her notice.

Lady Lillian Innesford, oldest daughter of the Williams family, withdrew from society seven years ago.  A governess now, she carries a secret that has drained all life from her.

Jasper Thomsett, new butler to the Williams family, is the first and only person to realize the nature of Lilly’s troubles.  Retired with the highest honours after the Crimea War, he seeks a quiet life, but Lilly’s secret will rip their world apart.

Valor of Love is the second book in the Scandalous Scions, which brings together the members of three great families, to love and play under the gaze of the Victorian era’s moralistic, straight-laced society.

Reader Advisory:  This story contains frank sex scenes and sexual language.

Praise for Valor of Love:

I have to admit crying like a baby through some passages of the book, they are so well-written that you can feel the character’s emotions.

I won't ruin the story but even if you feel historical romances aren't your thing trust me this will change your mind. I'm glad I took the chance and read it.

Wow! I was so moved by their story that I cried happy tears!! I'm so totally in love with these characters!

The characters stepped out of the books' fictional realm into my life from the very first page and they stayed with me as I had to go about my daily commitments...I know I'll be thinking of them long after the last page has been read.

This wonderful, suspenseful and romantic tale will make you believe that anything is possible. The family rallies around and helps put things right for them both. This is a must read if you like historical romance with some wonderful heat!!!

At long last, we hear the individual stories behind Lady Lilly and Thompsett, Lord Marblethorpe's butler. Cooper-Posey has dropped little hints that both hid behind a painful and mysterious past, but for her to give the reader BOTH stories in the same book - was just wonderful.
