Madelynne Ellis turns up the heat in her sixth entry in the Scandalous Seductions series, as three former lovers reflect on the past, present and future of their turbulent relationship.

 Christmas Eve 1800 – Two months ago Lucerne Marlinscar broke two hearts in addition to his own when he ended his scandalous relationship with Vaughan, Marquis of Pennerley and Miss Bella Rushdale. Now alone on his Yorkshire estate, he’s haunted by the events of the past.  

 Further south, in Shropshire, unwilling to forgo his obsession, Vaughan takes an icy plunge in order to retrieve a precious object. Only to then find another such item waiting in his bed.

 Meanwhile, Bella hardens her resolve, and seeks love beneath the mistletoe. She knows Vaughan will never truly be hers, but can she win enough of his heart that he’ll let her remain?

Through a series of engaging vignettes, the Ghosts of Christmas Past reveals compelling new details and layers to a complex relationship. This Regency-set historical romance includes M/F, M/M and M/M/F interactions. Please be advised that this is not intended as a standalone title, but is best enjoyed as a prelude to the final book in the series.

The path of true love doesn’t runs smoothly in the second entry in the riveting Scandalous Seduction series from bestselling author Madelynne Ellis.

Viscount Lucerne Marlinscar is caught in the middle of a constant tug o’ war between the decadent and perverse Marquis of Pennerley, and the woman with whom he eloped, seductive heiress Miss Bella Rushdale. All three are bound together in a scandalous and highly volatile ménage a trois.  As a result, Lucerne is careful never to favour one of his lovers over the other. That said, considering the recent efforts Vaughan and Bella have poured into tormenting one another, he’s beginning to wonder if it’s not he who’s the outsider in their relationship. What’s a considerate lover supposed to do besides compromise? Is it even possible for three people to find a happy ever after together?

When Lucerne calls time-out for the night, petty jealousies have to be cast aside for the bonds between them to be forged anew.

Indiscretions is a Regency-set romance novella with a high heat including M/F, M/M and M/M/F interactions. Expect ribald language, diabolical behaviour, and extreme decadence. You are advised to keep the smelling salts at hand.

 Madelynne Ellis delivers the heat in the fourth book in the Scandalous Seductions series, as rakehell Giles Dovecote and the deliciously wicked red-haired Darleston twins attend to needs of a damsel in distress.

Fortuna Allenthorpe is at her wits end. Her family have engaged her to odious Sir Hector, a man she despises beyond measure. Convinced that the destruction of her reputation will free her, Fortuna flees into the night with infamous scoundrel, Giles Dovecote and his debauched friends the Darleston twins. Too bad, then, that her betrothed is more interested in her impressive inheritance than her errant virtue. What’s more, he’s prepared to destroy her family to ensure he gets it.

A vocal advocate of free love, Giles isn’t looking for a wife. Past mistakes weigh heavily on his conscience, but Fortuna makes him want things he considers off limits. As the stakes mount, how long can he hold fast to his principles, if they mean surrendering the woman he loves to a hellish match?

 Three Times the Scandal is a scorching historical romp through the Regency underbelly involving arson, molly houses and grave robbery, and includes M/F, M/M and M/M/F/M interactions. Readers are advised to ensure a cold drink is on hand to avoid overheating.

Maggie is married to Massimo’s brother Nico and lives with him and her troubled stepdaughter. She knows all of Nico’s darkest secrets – or so she thinks. Then one day she discovers a letter in the attic which reveals a shocking secret about Nico’s first wife. Will Maggie set the record straight or keep silent to protect those she loves? 

For a family held together by lies, the truth will come at a devastating price.
