September Awakening

The Silver Foxes of Westminster

Free sample

 Lady Lavinia Prior has lived her whole life under her mother’s thumb. Heaven forbid she should form an opinion of her own or want something more than the rigid role her mother has planned for her as the perfect wife of an important man. But since her mother has never deemed any man to be good enough, Lavinia is at risk of becoming a spinster by default. 

 

Until one cringe-worthy night during a late-summer house party at Winterberry Park….

 

Dr. Armand Pearson never expected to inherit the title of Viscount Helm and all that goes with it upon his cousin’s death. With his medical career decimated by the duties of his title, the responsibility of an estate he doesn’t know how to run on his shoulders, and a position in the House of Lords that his friends urge him to attend to, the last thing he has time for is a wife.

 

But fate, and Lady Ursula Prior, have other plans….

 

What starts out as the most awkward, uncomfortable marriage in all of England turns into something else entirely when Lavinia and Armand discover that they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. And when they make a deal to combine forces in order to defeat an old foe, both awaken to a whole new world of possibility and love.

Theirs was a love that defied the rules, sizzled with passion…then fell apart spectacularly….

 

Katya Marlowe, the Countess of Stanhope, was forced into a loveless marriage when she was only eighteen, became a mother of three before she was twenty-three, and a widow by the age of twenty-four, and before she hit thirty, she developed a reputation as a siren and a woman of power. But as clever and seductive as she has been painted to be, her heart has only belonged to one man.

 

Malcolm Campbell has been a fighter his whole life, willing to go to extreme lengths to support the causes he believes in. Ruthless, arrogant, and ferocious, he has dedicated his life to eradicating anyone who harms women, particularly the villainous Lord Shayles. But for all his fight, his heart aches for the one woman who he has never been able to secure, Katya.

 

When Katya and Malcolm team up in a final campaign to bring down Shayles for good, old passions and old wounds bleed to the surface. But can they keep their burning desire for each other in check? Can they put their differences aside long enough to work together, or will the fire of everything that has smoldered between them for nearly twenty years consume them? Will they learn to forgive the stings of the past and come together at last?

After the death of her father, Miss Elaine Bond had decided to embrace life as an independent woman…much to the chagrin of her neighbors. Her eccentric ways alarm the entire town of Brynthwaite, to the point where concerned friends turn to the only person they believe can settle Elaine into a respectable married life, mysterious bookseller Mr. Basil Wall.

 

Basil has been in love with Elaine since the moment he moved to Brynthwaite years ago, but the secret that drove him out of London and into the remote Lake District has kept him from declaring himself. At least until a twist of fate throws the two potential lovers together in a way that neither of them expected.

 

But what begins as a romance that is as charming as it is sultry turns into a game with far higher stakes when the infamous Missing Earl of Waltham is tracked down and dragged out into the light. And with the fate of Parliament—not to mention a bill increasing the rights of women—in the balance, Basil must choose between love and duty. Which leaves Elaine caught between what is right and what is proper, and leads her to an adventure far more daring than any of her Brynthwaite neighbors could dream of.

For decades, Lord Mark Gatwick has been known as the best friend of nefarious villain, Lord Theodore Shayles. But the truth is that Mark couldn’t despise Shayles more. After executing his revenge against Shayles for a nightmarish event that happened over twenty years ago, Mark is on the verge of finding the peace that has eluded him his whole life. 


Until a bride he never wanted shows up on his doorstep…


Angelique LeClair has faced many challenges growing up as the daughter of a black man and a white woman, not quite light-skinned enough to pass, in her Louisiana home. But her biggest challenge of all comes with the shock of learning that, in order to inherit the money she desperately needs to keep from falling into destitution, she must travel to England to marry a distant cousin she’s never seen. She is determined to make the best of a bad situation.

Until she discovers that her groom is in catastrophic danger…


When Lord Shayles is released from prison, he vows to stop at nothing until Mark is dead. When Shayles learns about Angelique, his deadly intentions take a sickening turn. Mark must risk his life for the woman he never expected would be his last chance for redemption and happiness.

Miss Victoria Travers’s life was over. After being traumatized at the hands of a man years ago, she has secluded herself at Starcross Castle, helping her sister, Lady Mariah, raise her growing family. But being an aunt isn’t enough for Vicky. She longs for children of her own, but getting them means marriage, and marriage means making herself vulnerable to a man’s desires, something she swore she’d never do again.


Sir Christopher Dowland is widely considered the most mild-mannered, bland gentleman in Cornwall and potentially the perfect husband for Vicky. But Christopher wants to be so much more than the underestimated country squire everyone supposes him to be. He sees himself as a champion of the rights of women, particularly on the eve of a game-changing vote on the Married Women’s Property Act. 


Vicky and Christopher enter a businesslike engagement which seems as though it will lead to a boring, passionless marriage…until the two meet while in disguise at a masquerade ball, and everything changes. While Christopher knows full well who Vicky is, she is swept off her feet by the dashing and gallant mystery man who makes her smile, laugh, and feel free for the first time in years. But when their ongoing, masked flirtation takes a turn neither expect, Christopher could find himself both winning the girl and losing her forever….

At twenty-seven years old, Mariah Travers has become what she most feared—a spinster and a perpetual adolescent in the eyes of her family and the law. But her fortunes change when her father announces that he has promised her hand in marriage to an old friend and colleague in the House of Lords. Lord Peter deVere, Earl of Dunsford, is not at all who Mariah imagined marrying, but she is willing to take a chance on the older man in order to gain the freedom that only married women are allowed.

 

After a tragic marriage that stretched on for two decades, Peter is hesitant to marry again. But he needs an heir, or else his dastardly nephew, Lord William, will inherit everything he’s worked his entire life to build. But when he meets Mariah, sparks fly that neither of them expected. Their unlikely match stands a chance of giving each of them all the things they never realized they needed.

 

But trouble abounds when the mine that has provided Peter with his fortune is exhausted and the search for new veins of copper begins. On top of that, Lord William isn’t about to stand by and watch his inheritance disappear. His efforts to drive a wedge between Peter and Mariah cause havoc and heartbreak at Starcross Castle, which will take an act of heroic devotion to overcome as Peter sets out to prove that true love is ageless.

 Industrial heiress, Marigold Bellowes, knows that marriage is just another business transaction. She would, seeing as she’s been pursued by greedy men who only want her father’s fortune for years. But she’s determined to take her fate into her own hands and not to be a prize in a merger. So when she meets rising star of Parliament, Alexander Croydon, she sees a merger that would benefit them both instead of turning her into a useless ornament.

 

But Alex carries secrets that shield a broken heart. He finds Marigold clever and vivacious, dazzling at social events and sensual in bed, but he will not let himself get too close to her. Until a bitter twist of fate exposes James, Alex’s illegitimate son, and potentially the only heir he will ever have.

 

When revealing James as Alex’s heir makes the toddler a target for Alex’s enemies, Marigold and Alex must let go of their heartache to come together to save him. In the process, they discover a camaraderie that could lead to the love both have craved, a love that has been under their noses all along. But has it come too late, and is it enough?

Four years ago, Lady Cecelia Campbell fell head over heels in love with Lord Rupert Marlowe, the young Earl of Stanhope. Everybody knew they would marry and live happily ever after.


But then Rupert did the unthinkable. He enlisted as an officer in the army and left England for a post in South Africa. Cecelia was left alone in England, loving, yearning, and worrying about him from a distance. 


Now Rupert has returned. He is ready to take up his seat in the House of Lords, to assume the administration of the Stanhope estate from his mother, Lady Katya, and most importantly of all, to finally marry Cecelia.


Cece isn’t the same woman Rupert left behind, however. She has grown and flourished and become a woman of strength and opinion. And she’s not going to sit back and let Rupert get away with leaving her for so long. 


But when Cece takes a stand and declares her independence in a very public way, the scandal her defiance causes blows every expectation for her future happiness with Rupert to smithereens. It also gains her an exclusive invitation to join the elite group of politically-minded women known as the May Flowers. But the May Flowers are a group of shocking, defiant, sometimes wicked women. They are a bundle of scandals waiting to happen.


Can Rupert convince the new, more powerful Cecelia to forgive him for abandoning her, and can he woo her all over again? Will the scandal of their break-up tear them apart forever, or will it make their love stronger…and hotter?

THE MAY FLOWERS series is a continuation of THE SILVER FOXES OF WESTMINSTER series, involving the younger generation. It consists of:


A LADY’S FIRST SCANDAL

IT’S ONLY A SCANDAL IF YOU’RE CAUGHT

THE SCANDAL OF A PERFECT KISS

THE EARL’S SCANDALOUS BARGAIN

THE ROAD TO SCANDAL IS PAVED WITH WICKED INTENTIONS

WHEN LADY INNOCENCE MET DR. SCANDAL

Clara Partridge has never fit anywhere. Literally. At over six feet tall, she has always considered herself awkward and out of place. But now that she has a chance to break away from the terrible life she’s been living in the American Old West and to start anew in tranquil Wiltshire, England, she is willing to do whatever it takes to fit in. Even though the last job she’s suited for is that of maid in a wealthy gentleman’s house.

 

But when she meets Rev. Arthur Fallon, all of her efforts to be someone she’s not seem to be paying off.

 

Arthur knows he’s not the best vicar, but he tries to be the best man he can be. Even when the Amazonian Clara captures his heart with one awkward outburst in church. Even when he learns the truth of who she used to be. And even when Clara comes to his rescue to help him care for the baby of a fallen woman. Clara and Arthur know they are the last two people who should be together, but their hearts say otherwise.

 

But when word of the baby’s parentage leaks out, Clara finds herself scrambling not just to fit in, but to find a place for the baby—and for Arthur—and for her—to belong.
