What's a duke to do when a carefully selected bride rejects him rather than marry without love? He salvages his pride by marrying the next woman who falls into his arms.

Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie bewitched the Duke of Belmore the moment she appeared from nowhere and knocked him over . . . literally. When Alec's pride makes him choose to marry her, Joy turns the life of the most serious and snobbish duke in England upside down because she is a Scottish witch whose powers of white magic are not always easy for her to control.

Too soon Alec finds his well ordered and controlled life a mess, because he married a witch? One who turns him to fire when he kisses her, who charms everyone around her, and threatens to destroy both their lives as scandal looms over her. Joy falls hopelessly in love and not even the strongest magic can seem to turn her into a proper duchess, and how else will he ever love her?

Passion holds them spellbound in an irresistibly funny and tender tale of two opposite but lonely hearts.

Can a gentleman looking for a governess find the greatest treasure of all?

When James Craig is awakened by the sound of a woman’s weeping, he fears he’s once again being haunted by a ghost from his past. The powerful railroad tycoon has given up all hope of escaping his nightmares. But when he opens his hotel room door, he finds not a memory, but a flesh-and-blood woman. A woman who makes him ache to take her into his arms and dry her tears…


Elizabeth Sadler came to San Francisco with a heart full of hope. After her dreams of a bright future are dashed, she finds unlikely solace in the arms of a stranger. A stranger who just happens to be looking for a governess for his four motherless daughters.


Although she tries to resist their charms, Elizabeth soon finds James’s little girls — his “Treasures” — sneaking their way past her defenses. But it’s their handsome father who poses an even greater danger to her battered heart as Elizabeth finds his stolen kisses and tender touches utterly irresistible. As the shadows of the past gather around them, James and Elizabeth must decide just how many dangers they’re willing to brave to claim the greatest treasure of all — true love.
