The cure for a willful wife . . .

Drusilla Clare is full of opinions about why a woman shouldn’t marry. But that doesn’t stop the rush of desire she feels each time her best friend’s brother, notorious rake Gabriel Marlington, crosses her path. So imagine her dismay when she finds herself in the clutches of a scoundrel, only to be rescued by Gabriel himself. And when Gabriel’s heartless—and heart-pounding—proposal comes, it’s enough to make Dru’s formidable resolve crumble . . .

. . . is a smitten husband.

She’s sharp-tongued, exasperating—and due to one careless moment—about to become his wife. Still, something about Drusilla has Gabriel intrigued. First there’s the delicious flush of her skin every time she delivers a barb—and then the surprisingly sensual feel of her in his arms. Gabriel even finds himself challenged by her unusual philosophies. And when he discovers a clandestine rival for Dru’s affection, his temperature flares even hotter. But the real threat to their happiness is one neither of the newlyweds sees coming. If they’re to save their future—and their very lives—they’ll need to trust in each other and their growing love.

 CRAVING (Regency Lovers 3) is the 3rd book in Amazon #1 & USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, Regency Lovers Series.
Author’s note: The books in the Regency Lovers series are steaming hot. You have been warned!

At the age of seven and twenty, Miss Sophia Marchment, unlike many of her contemporaries, has lived a life of satisfying independence without the restraint of either a husband or male relative. As headmistress of her own school for young ladies in Portsmouth, Sophia is not afraid to share her independent views with ‘her girls’.

During a stay in London in which she meets with Magnus Spencer, the Duke Weston and the widowed father of a potential student, Sophia receives several unsigned and threatening letters. Ones in which she is advised to return to her home in Portsmouth or face the consequences.

Quite what those consequences might be Sophia has no idea, but nor will she be told what to do by someone who is not even brave enough to sign their own letters.

Aged eight and thirty, and single for many years, Magnus Spencer, the Duke of Weston, knows he has grown both cynical and arrogant. Nevertheless he finds himself surprisingly drawn to the beauty and independence of Miss Sophia Marchment. An attraction he has every reason to believe she reciprocates, and yet refuses to act upon. The more Magnus sees Sophia the more his attraction to her deepens, until she is all he can think about. A CRAVING beyond his control.

But not everyone feels that same admiration for Sophia and her fiercely independent ways, and when her very life is put in danger it falls to Magnus to protect her. From herself if necessary.
“Spencer is my new auto-buy!”
—New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt

What sort of lady doesn’t make her debut until the age of thirty-two? A timeless beauty with a mysterious past—and a future she intends to take into her own hands . . .

Lady Euphemia Marlington hasn’t been free in seventeen years—since she was captured by Corsairs and sold into a harem. Now the sultan is dead and Mia is back in London facing relentless newspapermen, an insatiably curious public, and her first Season. Worst of all is her ashamed father’s ultimatum: marry a man of his choosing or live out her life in seclusion. No doubt her potential groom is a demented octogenarian. Fortunately, Mia is no longer a girl, but a clever woman with a secret—and a plan of her own . . .

Adam de Courtney’s first two wives died under mysterious circumstances. Now there isn’t a peer in England willing to let his daughter marry the dangerously handsome man the ton calls The Murderous Marquess. Nobody except Mia’s father, the desperate Duke of Carlisle. Clearly Mia must resemble an aging matron, or worse. However, in need of an heir, Adam will use the arrangement to his advantage . . .

But when the two outcasts finally meet, assumptions will be replaced by surprises, deceit by desire—and a meeting of minds between two schemers may lead to a meeting of hearts—if the secrets of their pasts don’t tear them apart . . .

“Minerva Spencer's writing is sophisticated and wickedly witty. Dangerous is a delight from start to finish with swashbuckling action, scorching love scenes, and a coolly arrogant hero to die for.”
—New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt

“Readers will love this lusty and unusual marriage of convenience story.”
—New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter

“Smart, witty, graceful, sensual, elegant and gritty all at once. It has all of the meticulous attention to detail I love in Georgette Heyer, BUT WITH SEX!”
—RITA-award winning author Jeffe Kennedy
“Have you no decency?”

Straight-laced missionary Sarah Fisher has never met a man like Captain Martin Bouchard. He is the most beautiful person—male or female—she’s ever seen. Overwhelmingly masculine, elegantly attired despite months at sea, he is in complete command of everyone and everything around him: everyone, that is, except Sarah. But that’s about to change because Sarah has bought Bouchard’s mercy with the only thing she has to sell: her body.

“None at all . . .”

In spite of her outrageous offer, Martin has no doubt Sarah is a virgin, and a most delectable one at that. But instead of bedding her, he finds himself staring down the muzzle of his own pistol. Clearly, the longer she stays on his ship, the greater the chances that she’ll end up its damned captain! Most infuriating of all, she looks past his perfect exterior to the wounded man inside. Can Martin outrun his scandalous past in time to have a future with the first woman to find and capture his heart?
