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, 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?

Inghilterra, 1815

La maggiore di tre sorelle, lady Alexandra ha sempre fatto ciò che ci si aspettava da lei. Ma quando l’uomo che ama da quand’era una ragazza ritorna dopo un lungo periodo all’estero, si ritrova a sperare che il gentiluomo perbene che suo fratello ha scelto per lei non la chieda in moglie. Decide che, se lo farà, dovrà respingerlo in maniera poco appropriata—cioè, finché l’uomo in cui ripone le sue speranze e i suoi sogni la informa che non ha intenzione di sposarla.

L’ultima volta che Tristan Nesbitt ha visto Alexandra, era un uomo comune, senza alcuna speranza di poter un giorno sposare la figlia di un marchese. Sette anni dopo, è Lord Hawkridge, e questo dovrebbe renderlo perfettamente adatto alla donna che aveva catturato il suo cuore tanto tempo prima. Ma un orribile scandalo ha macchiato il suo nome in Inghilterra—uno scandalo così orrendo che sposarla non rovinerebbe solo l’impeccabile reputazione di Alexandra, ma quella della sua intera famiglia. Per il bene di Alexandra, dovrà combattere il suo inarrestabile desiderio e restare lontano…

"Il suo sguardo è pieno di desiderio e mi fa tremare. Come può odiarmi così tanto e, al contempo, volermi?"

Marinella è una ragazza del Nord, una studentessa universitaria giovane ed emancipata. Nicola è un uomo del Sud, legato alle responsabilità di nobile proprietario terriero, vincolato alle tradizioni; per questo, è intenzionato a far in modo che il nome di famiglia venga tramandato almeno da suo fratello.
Marinella ha dato il suo ultimo esame e finalmente può iniziare le vacanze, raggiungendo gli amici nel Salento da dove prenderanno un traghetto per la Grecia. Viaggia da sola in auto attraversando l’Italia, ma viene coinvolta in un tragico incidente. Quando riemerge dal coma, non ricorda nulla di quella sera, apprende soltanto che, apparentemente, a causa sua un uomo e una donna sono deceduti e con loro il figlio che aspettavano, il futuro conte De Luca. Questo è quello che le dice l’uomo dagli occhi di ghiaccio che non ha mai lasciato il suo capezzale e che ora le chiede di diventare sua moglie e rimediare così alla sua colpa dandogli un erede, dopo di ché sarà libera di andarsene.
Per uno strano gioco del destino, la vita di Marinella si incrocia con quella del conte Nicola De Luca al quale la ragazza si ritrova sposata per vendetta: ma sarà davvero una vendetta o quello che è cominciato come un matrimonio di finzione potrà rivelarsi un amore struggente e passionale?

Avvertenze: contiene scene erotiche ed è liberamente ispirato ai romanzi Harmony anni settanta.
