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?

“The Marquess’s Scottish Bride” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Emerald” by Lauren Royal.
From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

England & Scotland, 1667: Jason Chase, the Marquess of Cainewood, doesn’t know the first thing about hunting outlaws, but he won’t let that stop him from bringing a murderer to justice. Disguised as a commoner, he takes to the road, where he crosses paths with a hapless Scottish lad—who turns out to be a lovely Scottish lass, and none other than the renowned bounty hunter Emerald MacCallum. Realizing they're after the same man and fearing Emerald may be in over her head, Jason resolves to keep her close…

But all Caithren Leslie wants is to be as far away from her new “protector” as possible. No matter how many times she informs him she’s just an ordinary country girl traveling to see her brother—and definitely not some Emerald woman pursuing a dangerous outlaw—the pigheaded Englishman will not see sense. The road is perilous, but accepting Jason’s protection may mean jeopardizing her urgent mission. Not to mention her sanity, her personal property, and worst of all, her heart.

PLEASE NOTE: This book is the SWEET & CLEAN version of “Emerald” by Lauren Royal. If you’d prefer to read the original book, which includes steamy love scenes and stronger language, look for “Emerald.”

Lauren Royal
Londra, 1816

Lady Juliana Chase non desidera altro che vedere felici tutti quelli intorno a lei. È il motivo per cui le piace tanto impicciarsi della vita amorosa degli altri. Il suo ultimo tentativo coinvolge il dottor James Trevor, il conte di Stafford, e la sua buona amica, Amanda, che sono assolutamente perfetti l’uno per l’altro. Allora perché l’attraente medico insiste a ignorare le sue buone intenzione e a rovinare i suoi piani accuratamente studiati?

Dopo aver perso sua moglie, James si seppellisce nel lavoro e apre un ambulatorio per vaccinare contro il vaiolo i poveri di Londra. L’ultima cosa che desidera è innamorarsi di un’altra donna. Quindi, quando Juliana si immischia nella la sua vita amorosa, è sorpreso di ritrovarsi stregato, ma non da Amanda. Ora deve voltare le carte in tavola e battere Juliana al suo stesso gioco o rischiare di perdere la risoluta bellezza che ha risvegliato il suo desiderio e catturato il suo cuore…
