Lady Alain needs a husband, and Quintin Wyntor will do just fine.
She plans to offer him a mutual agreement of respect and independence, something any bachelor in England would be happy for.
But she didn't know his mistress would be a mister.
When she sees them together something is stirred.
Desire is ignited. But she still doesn't want to be touched. Celeste knows that Quinn was meant for Calder, but she can't deny the way she feels.
When Calder leaves the country, Quinn is devastated. He decides to explore his feelings for Celeste to ease his broken heart but in one unchecked moment of passion, mutual need spins out of control and marriage is the only way to protect her.
This book is the story of Celeste and has her happily for now.
It is also the beginning of Calder and Quinn's story which is continued in THE SPARE AND THE HEIR.
This book is an autochorissexual romance (on the asexual spectrum) but contains important pieces of a gay romance.
Both are explicit.
Warning: You're going to fall in love, and it's going to hurt.

It’s my title but I don’t want it—never did. It was given me when my father and two brothers were killed. Murdered.
Being a duke isn’t something I want though, there’s too much scrutiny for a man like me. A man who likes the things I like, who wants to live the way I’ve become accustomed.
I disappeared once, and want nothing more than to do it again. But I’ve been given the responsibility of this tile, and with it comes marriage to a wife I’ve never met.
Tomorrow we take our vows.
I can only hope she’ll be happy to leave me be for the balance of our days. Because if she puts so much as a single hand on me... she’ll discover all my secrets.
This man, Grayson, is so much more than he lets on which... well he doesn't let on much. I've been completely uprooted from my existence and plopped down in this one but there's so much more for me here— if I could just get him to connect with me. I've felt so completely alone, lost, unwanted... until the first time our eyes caught and I knew I was looking into my future. Which, oddly enough, seems to be in the past.
Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space—and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe—in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.
Rosemary Harper doesn’t expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman who learned early to keep to herself, she’s never met anyone remotely like the ship’s diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain.
Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy—exactly what Rosemary wants. It’s also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn’t part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary’s got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs—an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the universe.
Lady Amelia fears that her darkest secret will come to light, destroying her in society. She hopes to secure her future by marrying Charles Jackson, Duke of Castleberry.
Planning to come between Amelia and the Duke, Amelia's oldest friend, Baron Endsleigh longs to have Amelia as his own. Ender is determined that nothing can stop him, not even a duke as powerful as Castleberry.
But the Duke has other plans and he wants Amelia to himself... Charles will not rest until he destroys the one thing Amelia loves the most in this world--Baron Endsleigh. Now it's up to Amelia to choose between the one man she speaks her mind to and the other who holds her desire.
Unless....can the three of them find a common ground, one that pushes the boundaries but keeps them bound by the heart with want and passion?

What could be better than waking up next to a hot guy? Waking up sandwiched between two of them.
Quinn Preston, a financial analyst, is not happy when her friends dare her to pick up a handsome stranger at a wedding reception. What better reason to give up men when her previous long-term relationship had not only been lackluster in the bedroom but he had cheated?
Logan Reed, a successful business owner, can't believe that he's attracted to the woman in the ugly, Pepto-Bismol pink bridesmaid dress. And to boot, she's more than tipsy. After turning down her invitation for a one-night stand, he finds her in the parking lot too impaired to drive. He rescues her and takes her home. His home.
The next morning Quinn's conservative life turns on its ear when Logan introduces her to pleasures she never even considered before. And to make things more complicated, Logan already has a lover.
Tyson White, ex-pro football player, is completely in love with Logan. He has mixed emotions when Logan brings home Quinn. But the dares keep coming...
