Ginny Davis has risen through the ranks downstairs at Starcross Castle, from maid to lady’s maid for Lady Mariah deVere. But as grand as her new position is, the one thing she wants the most feels out of her grasp. Her heart belongs to head stableman Harry Pond, but she’s convinced that she’s already ruined her chances with Harry by being too bold too soon. So when mine surveyor Stephen Adler takes a shine to her and offers her the adventure of a lifetime, her heart is torn.

 

Harry has loved Ginny from the moment he met her, but he believes that her ambition and hunger for adventure mean she will never look on him as more than a bit of fun. He’d do anything to convince her to marry him…and when Adler swoops in, anything is what he just might have to do. 

 

This heartfelt tale of love below-stairs continues the story that started with DECEMBER HEART, the first book in The Silver Foxes of Westminster series.

 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?

In spite of the prestigious position she has earned as a member of the staff of Starcross Castle, maid Poppy Miller knows that service is not her destiny. She was born to be a wife and mother, and when she looks at Starcross’s head gardener, Nick Parsons, she knows exactly whose wife she wants to be.

 

Nick is charmed and delighted by Poppy. Her sweetness, coupled with her clumsy ways and flightiness, warm his heart, and every time he holds her in his arms as he picks her up from yet another spill, he wants to keep her there forever. All he dreams about at night is her kiss.

 

But the course of true love never runs smoothly. When a promise Nick made before he met Poppy comes back to haunt him, not even true love can overcome the hurdles in Nick and Poppy’s way. Poppy must stand up for herself and take risks she would never have dreamed of to save the man she loves from the grip of his past.

 

This heartfelt tale of love below-stairs continues the story that started with DECEMBER HEART, the first book in The Silver Foxes of Westminster series.

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.
