Inghilterra, 1677

 L’ultima di tre sorelle a sposarsi, Rose Ashford è decisa ad aggiudicarsi un marito ricco e titolato—forse un marchese o perfino un duca. Dopo aver sofferto una terribile delusione in passato, ha deciso che il sistema per conquistare un uomo è nascondere la sua intelligenza e i suoi interessi accademici e mettere invece in mostra i suoi attributi più femminili. Con la madre ‘combina-matrimoni’ al seguito e la strategia ben fissa in testa, Rose parte per la Corte di Charles II per trovare l’amore…

E finisce proprio per trovare Christopher ‘Kit’ Martyn, l’unico uomo che potrebbe rovinare i suoi piani. Kit è un cittadino comune, attraente e di successo, che aspira al posto di Architetto Reale—ed è l’unico uomo con cui Rose teme di poter sinceramente parlare di tutto. Kit conosce la vera Rose e la vorrebbe in moglie, ma lei pensa a lui solo come a un amico di famiglia. Riuscirà Kit a convincerla che un titolo non è così importante, in confronto alla passione che sa che sono destinati a condividere?

England & Scotland, 1668: Kendra Chase's brothers are telling her it's high time she get married. But although they've presented her with many wealthy, titled suitors, no man has caught her fancy—until her coach is held up by a dashing, mysterious highwayman. When she and the dangerous man are caught in a compromising embrace and her overprotective brothers insist they wed, Kendra cannot believe it. Are they really desperate enough to match her with an outlaw?

Scottish-born Patrick "Trick" Caldwell is the Duke of Amberley—and also the notorious Black Highwayman, an identity he has assumed in order to right past wrongs and serve his king. But his already complicated life becomes positively convoluted when he finds himself compelled to marry a red-headed temptress he's only just met. Caught in a web of half-truths and forced into a perilous mission, can Trick extricate himself and find love with the woman destined to steal his heart?

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…
