Jared Delaney, Lord Storm, is both intrigued and appalled when he hears of Amanda’s plan (or should we say her lack of a plan), and decides she needs a companion, a protector, as she flees Mayfair in the dead of night.

Trouble is no match for a lady of the extended Worthington family—except when it comes in the form of a most irresistible gentleman . . .
Lady Charlotte Carpenter’s brother-in-law has put an infamous brothel owner out of business—yet it is Charlotte who suffers the consequences. Abducted by thugs and held at an inn, she is plotting her escape when she’s suddenly rescued by a dashing gentleman. Only afterward does she realize she’s seen him before—with two courtesans! Unwilling to tarry with such a man, Charlotte makes her second escape. But it is too late to repair her reputation . . .
A known gossip has spied Charlotte’s movements, and his report is speeding through the rumor mill. Soon, everyone knows that Charlotte spent the night with Constantine, Marquis of Kenilworth. And everyone agrees the only answer is marriage—including Constantine himself, his overjoyed mother—and his mistress! But Charlotte’s abductors aren’t finished with her yet. Now Constantine will do anything to protect the spirited woman he loves and win her heart . . .

Sophie Winstead is utterly perfect, from the top of her tousled honey-brown ringlets to the tips of her dainty pink toes.  Indeed, any man in London Society would want her.  The problem for Sophie lay in what they wanted her from her.  For Sophie is the orphaned daughter of one Constance Winstead, the Widow Winstead, mistress of many men during her abbreviated lifetime.  Woo her, win her, yes.  Marry her?  Don’t be ridiculous!

When the Duke of Selbourne and his lovely Connie met an extremely public and indiscreet end at a country party, Sophie was crushed by her double loss, for she had grown to love “Uncle Cesse” very much.  She cried for days before her only companion (a French courtesan turned lady’s maid), slowly and carefully brought her back to her usual sunny, perfect self.

The Duke’s son took refuge in anger, railed at the mess his father had left behind, and swore that he would never, never ever, follow in his father’s irresponsible footsteps.  For three long years Bramwell Seaton, the new Duke, toed every line, broke no rules; why, he’d even become engaged to the perfect, staid, beauty who would make him a suitable wife.  He might not have been precisely a happy man, but he had managed to rub the tarnish from the family escutcheon.

You know what’s coming, right?  

Bramwell’s father had left behind a mess he could not ignore, and he suddenly found himself reluctantly chaperoning Sophie for the Spring Season. Sophie—accompanied by her maid, her parrot (a bird with the memory of an elephant), and a larcenous monkey —dazzled everyone in the Duke’s household, from his aunt to the lowliest scullery maid. Why, she even gained the approval of Bramwell’s fiancée, who offered to help steer Sophie in avoiding the many pitfalls of polite Society.

You know who didn’t have any intention of succumbing to Sophie’s charms.

Sophie being who she so naturally was, and Bram being a recent reinvention of the bright, charming man he’d been before his father’s “fall from grace,” it isn’t a question of if the Duke will realize where his true happiness lies, but only one of when.

This is the “Just for the fun of it” version of Indiscreet (no explicit sex), and I’m delighted to be able to offer it to all audiences, wishing them joy and giggles as they come along for the journey to romance with Sophie and Bram!

A Regency Time Travel Romance from New York Times bestselling author Kasey Michaels.

All American book editor Cassandra Kelley wanted to do was escape the tour group slowly making it’s way through the Tower of London by slipping down a convenient hallway. Once the group moved on, she could find a bus and return to the London Book Fair.  

It wasn’t as if she was doing anything too terribly wrong. She certainly didn’t expect to feel herself drawn to the winding staircase she encountered, but she couldn’t resist a slight detour. Once she reached the small room at the base of the stairs a most strange thing happened. A blue mist invaded the space, slowly coiling around her, enveloping her in its coolness. The last thing she thought before she screamed was that she should have known better – she never got away with anything.

Marcus Pendleton had come to the Tower to investigate a dying man’s confession concerning the fate of the two royal princes reportedly slain there centuries earlier. After months of investigating, he had decided he now knew the location of the strange room, the blue mist the boys’ gaolkeeper had sworn he’d seen. He was making his way down the curving staircase in his highly polished Hessians when he heard a scream, and entered the room just as a blue mist dissipated and he saw an oddly-clothed young woman step Out Of The Blue.

He thought she might be a witch. She thought the man was a costumed re-enactor working at the Tower.

They were both wrong.

Cassandra Kelley – welcome to Regency England. The real one!
