Inghilterra e Scozia, 1667



Jason Chase, Marchese di Cainewood, è deciso a consegnare alla giustizia un criminale quando incontra uno sfortunato ragazzo scozzese. Quando il ragazzo si rivela essere una bella ragazza scozzese, si rende conto che deve trattarsi della famigerata cacciatrice di taglie, Emerald MacCallum. Convinto che stiano entrambi dando la caccia allo stesso uomo e che la vita della donna potrebbe essere in pericolo, Jason decide di tenere Emerald accanto a sé...



Secondo Caithren Leslie, è meglio stare il più possibile alla larga dall'attraente ma dispotico inglese. Caithren sta cercando il suo capriccioso fratello, ma Jason non permetterà che una cosuccia come la verità interferisca con la sua assurda convinzione che lei abbia assunto una falsa identità. Consapevole dei rischi del viaggio, Cait, sia pure riluttante, accetta la sua protezione. Finché, cioè, non comincia a sospettare che la sfiducia potrebbe non essere l'unico sentimento tra di loro... e che la loro ricerca di giustizia potrebbe rivelarsi una ricerca dell'amore...

A double romance: Sean & Corinna + Griffin & Rachael!

London, 1817: Sean Delaney has no shortage of female admirers, but all he wants is a divorce—for his sister, that is. Too bad her rotter of a husband, reclusive oil painter John Hamilton, won't consent unless Sean agrees to help him pull off a major deception. With his sister's happiness on the line, Sean has no choice. But he won't be able to do it alone...

Though Lady Corinna Chase is more interested in pursuing her art than finding a husband, she can't help but take notice of the handsome Irishman who's moved in next door. When it soon becomes evident that her new neighbor isn't who he says he is, rather than expose him, she finds herself drawn into the hoax. As collaboration grows into admiration, and temptation breeds desire, Corinna faces a difficult choice: Will she abandon her artistic ambitions, or give up the man she's come to love?

Meanwhile, Corinna's brother Griffin is helping their alluring cousin Rachael find her father. Thank goodness they're cousins, because Rachael has made it clear she won't ever marry one. Except...they discover she isn't actually his cousin. Good God, he's really in trouble now...

England, 1677: The last of three sisters to marry, Lady Rose Ashcroft is determined to land a wealthy, titled husband—a marquess perhaps, or even a duke. Having had her heart broken in the past, she's decided the key to enticing a man lies in hiding her intelligence and academic interests while flaunting her more feminine qualities. Matchmaking mother in tow and strategy firmly in place, Rose heads off to Charles II's court to find love...

And runs smack dab into Christopher "Kit" Martyn, the one man who could ruin all her plans. Kit is a dashing, successful commoner with his sights set on landing the post of official Royal Architect—and he's the only man Rose feels she can honestly talk to about anything. Kit knows the true Rose, and he wants her, but she thinks of him as a family friend. Can he convince her that a title is unimportant compared to the passion he knows they're destined to share?

 Londra, 1817


A Sean Delaney non mancano le ammiratrici, ma tutto ciò che vuole è il divorzio—per sua sorella, cioè. Peccato che quel mascalzone del marito, il pittore eremita, John Hamilton, non acconsenta a meno che Sean non accetti di aiutarlo e mettere in piedi un grosso inganno. Con la felicità di sua sorella in gioco, Sean non ha scelta. Ma non sarà in grado di fare tutto da solo…


Anche se è più interessata a perseguire la sua arte che a trovare un marito, lady Corinna Chase non può fare a meno di notare l’attraente irlandese che si è trasferito alla porta accanto. Quando diventa chiaro che il suo nuovo vicino non è chi dice di essere, invece di denunciare l’inganno, Corinna si ritrova a prendervi parte. Quando la collaborazione diventa ammirazione, e la tentazione fa nascere il desiderio, si trova davanti a una scelta difficile. Dovrà abbandonare le sue ambizioni artistiche o rinunciare all’uomo che ha imparato ad amare?


Nel frattempo, il fratello di Corinna, Griffin, sta aiutando la loro affascinante cugina Rachel a trovare suo padre. È un bene che siano cugini, perché Rachel ha chiarito che non sposerà mai un consanguineo. Eccetto… che scoprono che lei non è veramente una cugina. Buon dio, adesso Griffin è veramente nei guai…
