A lady set on vengeance.
Fiery death took her brother and with him, her chance for a normal life with a well-suited match. Now Lady Sloane Ruddington is determined to make the man responsible for the fire pay for his sins—Reiner Doran, a cold-hearted duke with nothing more than acquiring land and filling his coffers in his soul.

A cold duke with secrets of his own.
When the Duke of Wolfbridge stumbles upon a woman unconscious on his lands, Reiner has little choice but to hold her captive in his household. He has enemies afoot and she could very well be another spy sent to destroy him. The last thing he should do is trust her. But when the beguiling Scottish beauty awakens with no memory of why she is at Wolfbridge, he has to keep her close—for both of their sakes.

Can a fiery lass melt a frigid heart?
Reiner soon discovers her enthusiasm for life is exactly what is missing in his household—for his niece—and him. As an undeniable fire between them sparks to life, there becomes only one thing that can tear them apart—her memories. Can they learn to trust each other before it is too late?

A thief on his final mission…

Maximus Vale is one of London’s top jewel thieves, and he’s protected his orphaned siblings by breaking every rule in the book. But his youngest brother is in mortal danger, and Max needs one final job — one lucrative enough to help his family leave England forever. He boldly claims to be the lost heir to the Briarley fortune, planning to steal everything he can carry and escape before anyone proves that he’s lying. Love is a distraction he can’t afford….

But her flawless reputation hides a sin she committed years ago — one that will destroy her and everyone she loves if it ever comes to light. Lucy will do anything to inherit Maidenstone Abbey and keep her secret safe — even making a risky offer to help Max claim the earldom in exchange for marrying her.

PRAISE FOR THE HEIRESS GAMES:

“Ms. Ramsey has woven a story of revenge, passion, deception, destiny, desperation and romance, into an utterly compelling Regency Historical Romance.” - April Renn, My Book Addiction

“Sara Ramsey delivers another story as only she knows how. I have read every single one of Sara's books and I can say I've never been disappointed. Her stories are the kind you can't ever put down once you start reading.” - Evie Knight, In Love With Romance

“Sara Ramsey just gets better with each book. Octavia and Rafael are a revelation.” - Dana Grisham

“Sara Ramsey has woven an intricate and utterly compelling story around deceit, hypocrisy, and revenge unlike anything I’ve ever read before. Octavia and Rafe are amongst the most fascinating and complex characters I have ever seen, and Octavia ranks as one the strongest, fiercest, most intriguing women I have ever seen….Such a rare talent is not seen that often, and I will be awaiting the next book in this series with bated breath, as it promises to be as wonderful as LORD OF DECEIT.” - Monique Daoust, Buried Under Romance

“Ms. Ramsey has the knack for writing snappy, humorous dialogue and there’s much to enjoy in their verbal sparring, which is often funny and poignant – sometimes at the same time – and I enjoyed the insights we were given into the Briarley family dynamic through the ages. They sound like a completely bonkers lot!” - Caz, All About Romance

“The passion fire and chemistry between Gavin and Callie is scorching and the writing flows so perfectly that you forget you a reading a story. This is a truly magnificent piece of art and should be appreciated as such.” - Jessi, Goodreads

“Amazing book! And I sincerely believe Sara Ramsey is one of the best among the regency romances authors. Her stories are never trivial, her heroines unpredictable and unusual for the time, strong, smart and funny and her male protagonists are absolutely magnificent.” - Cinzia, Goodreads

A lady desperate to escape. A hot-tempered earl in the wrong place and wrong time. An escape that sends sparks flying and turns into an attraction that neither can deny.

A lady desperate to escape.
Miss Evalyn Swanson is desperate to escape her stepfather and his nefarious plan to hawk her off to his vicious business partner. With time running out, she spies salvation at a house party in Lincolnshire. Salvation in the form of one hulking, brooding Scotsman that is conveniently traveling north. North, where she can disappear for good.

 

A hot-tempered earl in the wrong place and wrong time.
With his sister just married to his bitter enemy, Lachlan Ruddington, Earl of Dunhaven is in no mood to entertain the whimsical notions of a chit straight from the ballroom. Even if she’s an enchanting sprite, he has no time for anything other than quick dabbles with the opposite sex. He has an estate to right. A senile grandfather to battle. And a few more enemies he needs to mete out justice to.

An escape not quite according to plan.
Try as he might, Lachlan discovers the draw of Evalyn undeniable—though he’ll refuse it for as long as he can. Propriety demands it. His heart that he never thought to lose to an English lass demands it. The danger that lurks around her demands it. But if they can survive, they may just discover the truest love could be the love neither one of them ever anticipated.

More than 1,000 5-star reviews. Three irresistible stories with strong women, undeniable men, and hold your breath adventure. The first three historical Regency romances of the Hold Your Breath series from K.J. Jackson. 

Stone Devil Duke
Marked for death, Lady Augustine Christopherson finds herself scouring the slums of London in a desperate search to find the men who killed her father, and are determined to dispose of her. To protect her family, to protect herself, she is determined to find the men before they find her. The last thing she wanted was an entanglement with a duke that threatens her very survival…

Hardened long ago, the last thing the Duke of Dunway wanted was an entanglement with a chit of the ton. But in the flash of a pistol, his fate is altered as he finds himself honor-bound to protect Lady Augustine from, of all things, herself.

Unmasking the Marquess
Some people are born with backbone. Others have to fight for it. 
List in-hand of suitable bachelors, Lady Reanna Halstead, the epitome of naivety, is thrust into London society with demands to gain a husband. To her utter amazement, she manages to capture the attentions of the Marquess of Southfork. Her love, dreams, and future are soon pinned on her marriage to this one man. One handsome, kind, fantastic man. One man, who has a very different idea of what this marriage will be.

He will be hated, before he is loved. 
Killian Hayward, Marquess of Southfork, is only one step away from completing the revenge he has fought his entire life for. All he has to do is marry Lady Halstead. The one woman that is the key to his revenge. To his peace. The one woman that will threaten the very foundation of his entire existence.

My Captain, My Earl
One destined to live life on the seas.
As captain of the Windrunner, Katalin Dewitt has one mission in life. Serve the ship. The ship that has been her home her entire life. The ship that is the key to keeping her father safe from certain death.
She never expected to take pity on an injured deckhand from an enemy ship and allow him onto the Windrunner. And she certainly never expected to allow him into her life.
One determined to make his way home.

Bound, gagged, and held captive on one ship after another for two long years, Jason Christopherson had long since given up hope of ever getting back to land, much less to his beloved England.
He never expected to land on a pirate ship, bound for land. And he certainly never expected to fall in love with his new captain, threatening the one thing he needed most in life–to return home.

Neither expected to fall in love. Neither expected to be torn apart by a brutal betrayal.

The first three Regency romances in the Hold Your Breath series by K.J. Jackson. Historical romance with strong women, undeniable men, and hold your breath adventure.
