The Seduction of Sophie Seacrest

When Holt Langford, the new Earl of Westover, returns to England after twelve years at sea, he resembles more pirate than nobleman, a far cry from the scrawny youth shipped off by his father to become a man. No one recognizes him and he’ll use this anonymity to enter a game of subterfuge in order to expose the scoundrel who has vowed to destroy Holt’s family business.

Unfortunately, that scoundrel has a devoted daughter—Sophie Seacrest. Sophie can’t deny her attraction to the unorthodox stranger who stirs her blood and makes her think things no proper lady should. Holt and Sophie are drawn into a seductive tangle and just when he’s about to reveal his true identity and his honorable intentions, she discovers the truth and must choose between love and family duty.

 

A Taste of Seduction

Francie Jordan and Alexander Bishop have nothing in common—she runs barefoot and talks to animals. He won’t loosen his cravat unless the bedroom door is firmly closed. She believes in love, second chances, and happily ever after. He believes in keeping a safe distance from anything that resembles an emotion. Indeed, they have nothing in common but an undeniable desire for one another they can’t ignore, and an ailing “father” who will employ any means to bring them together.

Unfortunately, not everyone wishes to see a union between Francie and Alexander, and they will stop at nothing to keep this couple apart.

 

A Touch of Seduction

Jason Langford fell in love with Ariana Kendrick the first time he saw her. It didn’t matter that she was but a vicar’s daughter and he was the second son of an earl. Nothing mattered but their love and the future they planned as husband and wife.

But those dreams were torn apart one fall afternoon—swiftly, painfully, tragically.

Nine years later, Jason and Ariana will meet again. It will take great effort to untangle the truth from the lies, but Jason is determined to learn what really happened to the woman he loved, the one he could never forget…and never stopped loving…

 

A Scent of Seduction

English noblewoman, Julia Langford wants nothing more than to escape the constraints of a society that demands she turn in her breeches and secure a husband. She cares nothing about men or love until she encounters daring sea captain, Jon Remmington, a man who steals her heart and her innocence with searing kisses and bold touches.

Jon Remmington sails the sea avoiding anything that resembles commitment—until he meets the golden-haired temptress with a will to match his own. One night of passion binds them together but a debt of honor forces Jon to abandon his bride. When he discovers Julia is caught in a dangerous game of intrigue, Jon devises a secret plan to return to her side where he will risk his life to protect her and earn the chance to rekindle the greatest love either has ever known.

About the author

 Mary Campisi writes emotion-packed books about second chances. Whether contemporary romances, women's fiction, or Regency historicals, her books all center on belief in the beauty of that second chance. Her small town romances center around family life, friendship, and forgiveness as they explore the issues of today's contemporary women.

Mary should have known she'd become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the ending to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes.

When she's not working on her craft or following the lives of five young adult children, Mary's digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or, on the perfect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own hero/husband on his Harley Ultra Limited.

Mary has published with Kensington, Carina Press, and The Wild Rose Press and she is currently working on the next book in her very popular Truth in Lies series, the A Family Affair books. This family saga is filled with heartache, betrayal, forgiveness and redemption in a small town setting.

Love and Betrayal...Regency Style

He was the second son of an earl.

She was the daughter of a vicar.

They were young, in love, and believed nothing could keep them apart…

Oh, but they were so very wrong.

Jason Langford fell in love with Ariana Kendrick the first time he saw her. It didn’t matter that she was but a vicar’s daughter and he was the second son of an earl. Nothing mattered but their love and the future they planned as husband and wife.

But those dreams were torn apart one fall afternoon—swiftly, painfully, tragically.

Nine years later, Jason and Ariana will meet again.

They’ll be caught in a tangle of lies, deceit, and intrigue. Where has she been all these years, when Jason thought her dead? Why is she using a name other than her own? Is she truly a widow? When she and her son are rescued walking along a road, why does she have no traveling cases? No carriage? Not even a coat? And the boy she insists is not his son? Is that yet another lie?

It will take great effort to untangle the truth from the lies, but Jason is determined to learn what really happened to the woman he loved, the one he could never forget…and never stopped loving…

A Family Affair: Spring is a story of betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption, all wrapped up in the lives of the people we love to love, and even a few we love to hate.

Harry Blacksworth is rich, handsome, the ultimate playboy with a killer smile and a clever wit. He’s fought it, denied it, ignored it, but the damn truth won’t go away: He’s fallen in love. And just when he’s accepted that fact, Greta Servensen, the only woman he’s ever trusted, breaks his heart. 

Christine Blacksworth and Nate Desantro beat the odds when they fell in love and married. But staying married is threatened when the foundation behind every good relationship—trust—is challenged. 

Gloria Blacksworth descends upon Magdalena in all of her designer-clad arrogance, determined to make Christine change her course and return to Chicago and her old life. It may take a well-planted lie or two, but Gloria doesn’t plan to fail. When she finally confronts Miriam Desantro, the “other woman”, Gloria discovers more than she ever wanted to know… or admit.

Angelo “Pop” Benito is The Godfather of Magdalena. Nothing happens in that town without his knowledge or approval. And Pop doesn’t do anything without a long sit-down with his dead wife, Lucy, and a half dozen pizzelles by his side. He’ll need a lot of lung power and a tray of his favorite treat to help Nate and Christine out of a real mess. And he may need the help of his checkers buddy and Magdalena’s shining star, Lily Desantro.
