A fiercely loyal lady, along with her brooding duke come head-to-head in a battle of wills! An unforgettable Regency romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Joanne Wadsworth.

He must steal a lady…then steal her love.

Desiring a man and never being noticed as more than his best friend’s little sister has Lady Ellie Trentbury finally consigning herself to the truth. She must move on, and preferably with a man who lives far away from her home in London where she need never be reminded of the duke who stole her heart. An elopement with an honorable American shipping merchant sounds perfect.

The Duke of Ashten has no choice but to bound into his best friend’s carriage when he discovers little Ellie is inside and intent on eloping with a man to Gretna Green who she barely knows. He can’t allow her to make such a terrible mistake, yet convincing her might mean giving into his desire for the golden-eyed enchantress who has followed him around since he was a lad.

Her pouty lips and bountiful charms can no longer be ignored, only convincing her of the truth of his intentions will mean jeopardizing both his sanity and a lifelong friendship as well.

She disguises herself for the battle.

 

He must find her, protect her, no matter the cost.

 

It’s a war, to end all wars.

 

Miss Julia Chalmers isn’t like any other lady a gentleman would ever meet. Yes, she wears gowns and skirts, but she much prefers to don lad’s clothing, a disguise which allows her to roll up her sleeves within the trenches as she aids her father, an engineering professor of great renown. Their current mission: Halting the French in their bid to take over Portugal.

 

As Napoleon’s French force bears down on them, Major Harry Trentbury works diligently with a team of engineers in Portugal as they build fortified Lines of redoubts, trenches, and garrisons across the entire width of the peninsula to protect the city of Lisbon. At every turn he clashes with the professor’s daughter, a beautiful and quick-witted lady who stokes both his anger and passion to rise, his need for her an infuriating emotion he can’t seem to shake. As tensions increase and a battle becomes imminent, he rides out and fights on the front line, only disaster looms—she has followed him, disguised as a lad.

 

Protecting her now is essential, but when he suffers a terrible fall on the battlefield and awakens with a fatal loss of memory, all could be lost… Until he sees her.

 

Could she be the one to unlock his memories and bring him back to the land of the living?

He’s searching for anything other than love.

Somehow, they might just be each other’s best match.

 

For years Captain Anteros Bourbon—aka The Cobra—has eluded his father. He has dedicated his life to fighting the war against Napoleon by building his fleet of ships and sinking his enemy’s warships, although he hides a deadly secret. He is a lost Prince of Naples and Sicily, and now his father has found him and is demanding he marry and produce the required heir. Never will he take on a wife though, or expose her to his dangerous activities, so instead he devises a plan to make it appear to his father that he has wed. He enlists the aid of an English lady he trusts by asking her to speak false marriage vows with him. A winning plan for sure, one which should rid him of his father’s man spying on him.

 

Lady Olivia Trentbury has been infatuated with Anteros Bourbon since the first day she met him. He has aided her family in so many ways, and when he arrives on her doorstep asking if she’ll speak false marriage vows with him, she can’t turn him away. She takes all care when his father’s spy is near, although unfortunately the villain is intent on removing her from Anteros’s sight. The spy steals her away as his hostage aboard a ship bound for Sicily. Forced to survive treacherous waters as Anteros follows in hard pursuit, she discovers staying alive has never been more of a challenge.

 

Can Anteros capture his lady back before it’s too late?

Highland warrior shifter Finlay Matheson is on a mission to find his mate and each time he meets Arabel, he falls inescapably in love. If only he didn’t keep forgetting her each time they parted ways.
