The woman swears she won’t marry, especially a fortune hunter. Oliver must win her for his bride at any cost, even if it means compromising the lady on a train and stealing her heart.
Avoiding fortune hunters has never been harder...

She’s endured six years of agony at the hands of incompetent practitioners, and longs for an end to her suffering.

Arabella is too clever to be swept up in Shelton's wicked amusements, but she finds herself unable to resist the temptation of his company. And when she tastes his kiss, she discovers there's more to him than a mysterious past and an infamous reputation. Arabella soon realises that, in order to protect her own heart, she has to collect that of another – the heart of the most notorious rake in London.
West is a man with a tarnished past. No apologies, no excuses. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire...not to mention the bitter awareness that a woman like her is far out of his reach. What West doesn’t bargain on is that Phoebe is no straitlaced aristocratic lady. She’s the daughter of a strong-willed wallflower who long ago eloped with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent—the most devilishly wicked rake in England.
Before long, Phoebe sets out to seduce the man who has awakened her fiery nature and shown her unimaginable pleasure. Will their overwhelming passion be enough to overcome the obstacles of the past?
Only the devil’s daughter knows…
Her mind should be on school—Cambridge!—and her grades—Yikes! Instead all she can think about is him. Tristan Kingsley. It’s not his money or his title...it’s not even his panty-dropping good looks. Kat loves Tristan because he’s unguarded, sharing his emotions, his desires, and his dreams with her. But it seems Kat inherited the unlucky-in-love gene. Her father and Tristan’s mother are now dating, which means she’s spending Christmas break in the same London townhouse as Tristan. But Tristan’s father, the Earl of Pembroke, wants more than an American college girl for his son, and it would take a decree by the Queen herself to change his mind.
Christmas break should be relaxing and fun...
For Tristan Kingsley it’s a living hell. He can’t think about Decking the Halls when the girl of his dreams is staying right across the hall! But her father wouldn’t approve of Tristan’s roguish reputation as a London playboy, and despite agreeing to keep their relationship secret, stolen moments aren’t enough. Tristan can’t keep his hands off Kat, and when a fairy tale style picture of them kissing hits the London newsstands, they know it’s only a matter of time before their families discover the truth.
No matter how much Kat and Tristan want to be together, fate isn’t on their side. Unless something changes, it looks like both of them will soon be members of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club.
