‘A rare jewel’ Gimme The Scoop

Inferior and seduction are bitter tasting words...

How could Caro love and hate the same man? How could she be foolish enough to harbour that love for years; to hide herself away from the world because of her embarrassment over her failure to be loved in return? Because she is a fool...

Yet Rob Marlow sees not that but courage in her, and this beautiful young man, who gives her back the strength she's lost is someone she longs to cling to for the physical comfort she has missed since the end of her marriage.

Integrity, idealism and honour are at the heart of Rob Marlow, and yet he knows that perhaps pride is his weakness, but he thought it his only possible weakness until he spends a summer with his sister and discovers a new addiction, Caro, his brother-in-law's dependent sister.

A gorgeously romantic book in the Regency romance series, The Marlow Family Secrets.

About the author

Jane is qualified to the equivalent of a Masters Degree in People Management and is fascinated by the things which craft people’s personalities, so she has great fun exploring these through characters. She lives in the United Kingdom near the Regency City of Bath and has just bought her 400 year old dream home. History has always tempted her imagination and she loves researching and also exploring ruins and houses to get ideas. She equally loves a love story.
Jane has always aspired to writing a historical novel so when she was thirty she put it on her ‘to do before I am forty’ list. She completed her first novel ten years ago, never sent it anywhere then started the next. She’s not stopped writing since, and escaping into a mental world of fiction is a great painkiller to help fight off her Ankylosing Spondylitis.

Daring Rescue and Escape to the Colonies in the Historical Romance, Crystal Passion, by Jo Goodman

1775 London, England and the Colony of Virginia
Ashley Lynne never expected kindness from her guardian, the Duke of Linfield. But being betrothed by him to a much older man she hardly knew was unthinkable. Worse was the cost of her resistance—awakening from a drugged sleep in the bedchamber of a dark-haired, steel-eyed stranger.
In England on business, Captain Salem McClellan assumed the lovely young woman curled up in his bed was only an evening's entertainment supplied by the Duke. But Ashley's terrified protests were proof enough of her innocence—and a powerful inspiration to rescue her.
From the gloomy docks of London to the lush green hills of Virginia, Salem and Ashley embark on a journey that exposes scandalous family secrets, and plunges them into the American Revolution where they fight for freedom, and the promise of each other...forever.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: For fans of Jo Goodman we bring you one of her earliest books freshly edited, by Jo Goodman herself, for today's readers. Enjoy!

One by one, the Saint’s Devils—Samantha Kane’s wicked, wonderful Regency heroes—continue to enchant the women who capture their rakish hearts.
 
Even though she is starving and destitute, Eleanor Enderby’s quiet beauty strikes Sir Hilary St. John speechless. He expects the woman he’s searching for to be skittish and plain. Instead he finds the picture of bravery—and willfulness—in his quarry. She gives away little, but Hil can see something is terribly amiss. And though he cannot say exactly why, he is determined not to let her come to more harm than whatever it is she has already survived.
 
Six months later, Eleanor believes she has finally found safety from the tyrant she risked her life to escape. Thought to be dead by society, Eleanor is ready to be reborn as someone new—someone whose life will never again be tied to the fate of one man. But her smoldering savior seems unwilling to leave her unprotected for an instant. Despite the threats he thinks he sees coming, the real dangers Eleanor faces in Hil’s arms are unmistakable: temptation, seduction, and maybe even love.
 
Praise for Devil in My Arms
 
“Samantha Kane’s delightful characters and sizzling sexual tension always make for a great read.”—Sabrina Jeffries, New York Times bestselling author of ’Twas the Night After Christmas

“Devil in My Arms is a devilishly hot read. Intrigue, high stakes, banter, scandal, and sizzling chemistry . . . it kept me guessing right to the end.”—Ashlyn Macnamara, author of A Most Devilish Rogue

“A dramatic tale . . . [There’s] heat and chemistry between our hero and heroine, with both of them finding that keeping their hearts unengaged was more of a struggle than they’d anticipated. . . . Eleanor never once lost her determination or spirit, and it was that strength that really appealed to me from the start.”—The Romanceaholic
 
“Devil in My Arms is an enjoyable story. I adore Eleanor and Hil together. Their verbal sparring and dancing is as sexy as their mutual attraction.”—That’s What I’m Talking About
 
“Beautiful story! I enjoyed it quite a lot. The characters are charming and very well described; the story, which sometimes has a bit of an intricate plot, is never confused or tedious.”—Il Profumo delle Pergamene
 
“With a touch of steam to liven up the quiet moments with Hil and Eleanor, the pages just flew past.”—I Am, Indeed
 
“Once again Samantha Kane’s brilliance shines. Each and every one of the books in the Saint’s Devils series is a winner and each one so delectably different.”—Book Obsessed Chicks
