A ruined reputation is a sweet entry into sin…


Life is decidedly unfair for Miss Sophie Barnes. After her sisters’ falls from grace, she has been left without friends, without a place in society, and without the first clue what to do with her life. All respectable paths are closed to her, but she still wants to make a name for herself instead of feeling invisible in her own skin. And as it turns out, being seen in nothing but her skin might be the solution she’s been looking for.


Jonathan Foster is the illegitimate son of a sugar plantation owner, and though running his father’s business in London has made him wealthy, his true calling is as a pastry chef and confectioner. When he meets Sophie, he sees her as the perfect canvas for his art and the perfect companion for his life. Ambition has never tasted so good.


But when a familiar villain is discovered to be selling secrets to French pirates, Sophie and Jonathan must stretch their delicious new alliance to do more than just entertain the members of the ton who once turned their backs on Sophie, they must catch the spies and see them brought to justice.


A light-hearted, fun, SUPER steamy, Regency romp—a quick read, not to be taken too seriously.

 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.

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.

Every good girl deserves a very bad boy…


After one little moral slip, Miss Josephine Hodges was banished to Miss Dobson’s Finishing School to mend her ways. What could have been a misery has turned into a blessing in disguise as she helps her friends investigate the theft of a priceless diamond. But when Jo’s mother arrives at the school to inform her she’s been promised in marriage to none other than that notorious Lord Lichfield, Jo is in shock. How could she possibly marry the man she suspects of stealing the diamond?


Lord Felix Lichfield is desperate for a wife after rumors of his wickedness cause his fiancé to call off the engagement, but he never suspected his mother would stoop so low as to find a bride for him without his involvement. But when he meets the feisty Miss Hodges, things begin to look up. Except that he suspects his new fiancée has heard all about his reputation and wishes embrace it just when he would do anything to put that part of his life behind him.


There is more going on than meets the eye, though, and when Jo and Felix team up to hunt the diamond thief—and to explore their passions while they’re at it—anything could happen.


A light-hearted, fun, SUPER steamy, Regency romp—a quick read, not to be taken too seriously.

THE DELECTABLE TART

THE BLUSHING HARLOT

THE CHEEKY MINX

THE CLEVER STRUMPET

When your reputation is ruined, why not enjoy it?


For Regency wallflower, Miss Verity Barnes, nothing is more difficult than obtaining a voucher to Almack’s Assembly Rooms…except salvaging her reputation after committing a grievous faux pas within ten minutes of stepping through the doors. But being cast out of fashionable society inspires Verity to seek out a different way of life—a way she believes will bring her happiness, comfort and security—becoming the mistress of a powerful man.


Thomas Manfred, Marquess of Landsbury, isn’t looking for a biddable woman to warm his bed. His fortunes lie on the brink of ruin, so he needs a wealthy wife, and Lady Charlotte Grey, darling of the ton, seems to be his only answer. But he cannot forget the adorable, amusing, and naïve young beauty who humiliated herself at Almack’s. And when Verity shows up on his doorstep, demanding he take her as his mistress as amends for the part he played in her ruin, he simply cannot resist the temptation.


But Lady Charlotte isn’t willing to give up her position at Thomas’s side or share his attentions with anyone. Her acid tongue could ruin Verity’s reputation even more thoroughly than it has already been destroyed…unless fate intervenes.


A light-hearted, fun, SUPER steamy, Regency romp—a quick read, not to be taken too seriously.

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.
