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.

There can be only one…for both of them.

Sent back in time to the year 1210 when their Highlander shifter clan first began, three identical brothers known as the ‘power of three’ must find their mates if they wish to save their future line from extinction.

Fae-blooded Arabel holds the deadly and rare fire-wielder skill, an ability that flares beyond her control when her shifter mate travels to the past and begins closing in on her. Unable to allow an intimacy with him for fear she’ll bring about his death, she enlists the aid of one of her fae kind to compel him, so that no matter how many times they might meet, each instance will be as if the first and all other times forgotten.

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. Determined and unwavering in his mission, when he is called to save Arabel’s village from being destroyed by her enemy, he races to aid and protect her.

Battling both love and land, Finlay must find a way for them to be together…and without perishing when they do.

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?

Three identical brothers known as the ‘power of three’ are on a quest to find their mates after being sent back in time to the year 1210 when their Highlander shifter clan first began. Nothing will deter them, not when they must save their future line from extinction.

Cherub, the faerie king’s daughter is one of the few who holds the ability to open a portal and travel through time. As a time-walker, she’s responsible for ensuring those of her fae-blooded kind living on Earth find their soul bound match, no matter what time they might live in. The last thing she expects though is for her shifter mate to travel into the past and begin closing in on her. Her destiny is set, to aid others in finding their chosen ones, not in becoming the very one she hunts.

Faith Stryker never expected her lost father to be a warrior prince from another world, or that she would come into coveted magical skills on her eighteenth birthday. Now, she must take a leap of faith when her father suddenly arrives to claim her. He asks her to leave Earth with him, to give up all she’s ever known, and to embrace a new world—her legacy. It’s time for her to accept her place as a princess of Dralion, to wield her burgeoning battle skill to her best ability, and to fight alongside her new nation’s fierce band of warriors.

 

When Prince Davio Loveria discovers he’s mated to Faith, the lost daughter from his rival nation, he must either accept his bond with her, or give her up forever.

New York Times Bestselling Author Joanne Wadsworth brings you another bestselling Highlander time travel series you shouldn’t miss. Readers are loving it!

There can be only one…for both of them.

In the twelfth century, a man named Gilleoin was gifted with the ability to shift into a bear. His clan was called Matheson, and when he mated with a woman carrying faerie blood, they created a line shrouded in secrecy, yet still, far into the future, whispers would abound...

For five long years, Isla Matheson has run from the one man her fae ancestor prophesized would be hers, but now her time for running is done. Her shifter mate is closing in and when he captures her and takes her home to his clan, she can no longer deny either of them. She chooses to merge with him in all ways, and in doing so sets a twelfth century prophecy in motion, one that sends her hurtling back through time to when their clan first began.

Highland warrior shifter Iain Matheson has fallen under his mate’s spell. She’s the one woman he would die to protect, and when a portal opens and takes her from him, he dives in after her. He’ll never allow her to escape him, not even when he becomes embroiled in one of the greatest feuds raging at that time.

Now they have a mission, to save their future line from extinction, to give hope to their people, both in the future and the past.
