Three full-length sensual Regency romances make up this boxed set about a trio of widows. 


Extra! Extra! Read all about it ... In THE GOSSIP OF AN EARL, The Earl of Fennington has a secret identity—that of Mr. Pepperidge, editor of London's premiere gossip rag, The Tattler. While attending a garden party as Fennington, he meets and falls in love with Lady Emelia. The attraction is mutual, for despite knowing better, she allows him to kiss her behind a hedgerow. Who will know but them? Why, Mr. Pepperidge, of course! Desperate to spend more time with Emelia, Fennington employs a bit of blackmail to force Emelia to meet with him. Disguised as Mr. Pepperidge, he insists she provide him the on-dit she hears in Mayfair parlors. That, or he'll print the news of her kiss with the earl in The Tattler! With mistaken identities ruling the reports in the rag and a new Gossip Goddess sharing news of obscure aristocrats, is it any wonder the members of the ton love to hate gossip? Or do they really love gossip? 


When a widow just out of mourning returns to her position as a operative with the Foreign Office, she's assigned to help another spy regain his abilities after his experience with the horrors of war. What she doesn't know is that he's been assigned to her for an entirely different reason. Deception and intrigue highlight THE ENIGMA OF A WIDOW, a sensual tale of two spies with the same insane assignment—each other.

Nothing makes a man more lonely than his secrets. The same might be said for women. THE SECRETS OF A VISCOUNT finds Godfrey, Viscount Thorncastle, with a secret he’d rather not tell anyone, including the woman for whom he has held a candle for over twenty years. Elise, the widow of Lord Lancaster, has had enough of marriage, but pining for the chance at motherhood, she may just have to consider Godfrey’s proposal. If he can just get it right. The man has some preconceived notions about his true love, none of which are true. But then, she has some of the same notions about him. And none of them are real! Misunderstandings must be overcome in this sensual tale of secrets and numbers.

They say time heals all wounds ... but what of those left by love?Having barely survived the fire that killed his family, Joshua Wainwright reluctantly begins his reign as the new Duke of Chichester. He is still recovering from his burns when he returns to Wisborough Oaks, the family seat in Sussex where the fire occurred. With reconstruction underway and a backlog of estate business to complete, the very last thing Joshua can handle is the sudden appearance of Lady Charlotte, the daughter of the Earl of Ellsworth.

Once betrothed to Joshua’s older brother, Charlotte has spent her entire life training to be the Duchess of Chichester. Now that the man she was supposed to marry is dead, Charlotte is determined to marry Joshua, for despite the horrific scars that require him to wear a mask over one side of his face, she has secretly loved him since her coming-out. Never mind that her father has arranged a betrothal to the Earl of Gisborn!

The duke has no idea it was Charlotte who arranged for his medical care and transport to London after the fire. Given his scars and the gossip mongers in London who refer to him as “His Grace with half a face”, he’s determined to spare Charlotte from having to marry him, even if she feels duty-bound to do so. But Charlotte, hiding a hideous scar of her own, will do whatever it takes, including seduction, to secure a marriage to the man she loves.

Will Joshua’s apparent indifference send her into the arms of the earl who has come to claim her? Or will Charlotte choose a different path? Love proves it can heal even the deepest wounds in "The Grace of a Duke".
