From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the first in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series.

Jack Coltrane grew up with his father's red-haired tomboy ward Meredith Fairfax chasing after him, always begging to tag along in his adventures during the years they resided at Coltrane House.  Jack was variously annoyed, flattered, and as the years passed and childhood faded, both he and Merry sensed a slow change in their relationship.

Friendship, blossoming into love.  Love for each other, and a combined love for Coltrane House, fast falling into disrepair by his neglectful father.  But one day the estate would be his, and Jack and Merry would make it beautiful again, raise their children there, and live happily ever after.

Theirs was the perfect dream, until Jack's father took him aside to tell him something that sent his son fleeing from Coltrane House, away from Merry, perhaps never to return.  Ah, love... why is it never easy? 

Oh...and then there's Jack's quite singular friend from America, and possibly a pair of matchmaking ghosts.  Ghosts?  Well, certainly - why not?  Everyone loves a happy ending!

Book 2
From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the second in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series.

Abigail Backworth Maldon is no fan of marriage, having buried her late husband after his embarrassing demise (he toppled headfirst out of a bedroom window in an attempt to avoid an angry husband). But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t see its advantages — just not for her.

The part she likes best is the idea of marrying off her niece to a suitable husband. To Abigail, “suitable” means the man comes with a pleasant disposition, a title if possible, and most definitely with a fortune he’d naturally share with his bride’s family. Because, as chance would have it, the family is dead broke.

Enter Kipp Rutland, he of the recently broken heart (see WAITING FOR YOU), beholden to marry before his thirtieth birthday (he promised his mother, as mothers do worry… and nag). One look at Abby’s niece tells him he has discovered the perfect wife — quiet, conventional, probably not too bright. Marry her, bed her, and nine months later hand his ecstatic mother the grandchild she desires. After all, the last thing he’s looking for is love.

Nothing can be simpler than Abby’s plan and Kipp’s plan — except that nothing is ever that simple. Especially when the matchmaker and the matrimonial target she has sicced her niece on begin to realize opposite motives just might attract.

**PLEASE NOTE: This is the JUST GOOD CLEAN FUN version of INDISCREET by New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels**

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!

"Using wit and romance with a master's skill, Kasey Michaels aims for the heart and never misses." -- #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Nora Roberts
