An enchanting historical romance from the 2018 RITA award-winning author that New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean calls "a charming, clever, and engaging storyteller."
Named to All About Romance's "The Best of 2018!"
Duke. Scoundrel. Titan of business. August Faulkner is a man of many talents, not the least of which is enticing women into his bedchamber. He's known-and reviled-for buying and selling companies, accumulating scads of money, and breaking hearts. It's a reputation he wears like a badge of honor, and one he intends to keep.

Clara Hayward, the headmistress of the Haverhall School for Young Ladies, on the other hand, is above reproach. Yet when she's reunited with August all she can think of is the way she felt in his arms as they danced a scandalous waltz ten long years ago. Even though her head knows that he is only back in her life to take over her family's business, her heart can't help but open to the very duke who could destroy it for good.
"Where have you been all my life, Kelly Bowen? If Julia Quinn, Sarah MacLean, and Lisa Kleypas were to extract their writing DNA, mix it in a blender, and have a love child, Kelly Bowen would be it." --HeroesandHeartbreakers.com

About the author

RITA-award winning author Kelly Bowen grew up in Manitoba, Canada. She attended the University of Manitoba and earned a Master of Science degree in veterinary physiology and endocrinology. But it was Kelly's infatuation with history and a weakness for a good love story that led her down the path of historical romance. When she is not writing, she seizes every opportunity to explore ruins and battlefields. Currently, Kelly lives in Winnipeg with her husband and two boys, all of whom are wonderfully patient with the writing process. Except, that is, when they need a goalie for street hockey.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Olivia Drake, a steamy Regency romance...

A devoted daughter goes undercover to clear her father’s name...

When her scholarly father is wrongfully accused of being the Wraith, the famed jewel thief who’s been fleecing the aristocratic set of London, Claire Hollybrooke will do anything to clear his name.

Claire suspects he was set up by the noble grandfather she’s never met. Vowing to expose him, she goes undercover as Mrs. Clara Brownley, the chaperone for her cousin, Lady Rosabel. But her plan to be the ‘invisible’ servant quickly falls apart when Simon Croft, Earl of Rockford, who is supposed to be wooing Lady Rosabel, can’t keep his eyes off of the dynamic lady’s maid.

As the Earl of Rockford, Simon must marry to ensure an heir for his name. Under familial pressure, he is reluctantly courting Lady Rosabel...but she pales in comparison to her beautiful and spirited chaperone, the undercover Claire.

Unbeknownst to Claire, Simon secretly works for Bow Street and is the very man who put her father behind bars. As Claire digs deeper into who the real thief is, her time spent with the handsome and rakish Earl of Rockford increasingly distracts her from her mission...even as everything she thought she understood about her father is called into question.

As Simon must make a choice between who his family wants him to marry and the woman his heart desires, Claire must also choose...is her disdain for the aristocracy worth missing out on the love of a lifetime?

“A romantic suspense that not only keeps you turning the pages, but turns the tables on you until you’re breathless. A major craftsman of the genre.” –RT Bookclub

“Elegantly written and subtly sexy.” –Booklist

“A delightful fast-paced story with charming characters, great dialogue, and plenty of sexual tension.” –Rendezvous

“Tremendous...exhilarating story line...Claire is a delight.” –Midwest Book Review

“A wonderfully written Regency-era romance chock full of engaging characters and a sleuthing pair of lovebirds. A non-stop page turner.” —romancereaderatheart.com
Destined to go blind, a rake sets his sights on the toast of society, lighting a fire of passion that scorches the night, in this captivating novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans.

Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clevedon, has one goal: to see every exquisite thing he can before he goes blind. His greatest joy, watching a woman shuddering in the throes of passion, will be gone. But before the darkness descends, he is determined to seduce a magnificent widow, Lady Penelope Fisherton. Unfortunately, his rakish reputation has preceded him; Lady Penelope spurns his advances. Being a man who relishes a challenge, however, her reluctance adds only luster to his desire for the last beautiful sight he’ll ever see.

Considered the belle of London society, Lady Penelope was married to a scoundrel who cared for no one but himself. Now that she’s free, she wants nothing to do with love, passion, or desire—emotions that abandoned her with a cruel husband. So why does her body react when Stephen smiles? As much as she’d like to avoid the rogue, her brother-in-law wants her fortune, and he’ll kill to get it. Stephen is willing to help, but he’ll take only one thing in return: Her. In his bed.
