'Twas the Night Before Mischief

Sold by Forever Yours
3

Twas the night before mischief and all through the house, a lady was plotting-it was time to break out!

When Penelope Darlington is persuaded to elope with a most unsuitable suitor, she wastes no time. With visions of passion and adventure dancing in her head, she steals away in the middle of the night, just before her father's Christmas feast.

Fearing for his daughter's reputation, Henry Darlington begs Darius Hall, the Earl of Rushton's daring yet discreet son, to bring Penelope home. When Darius finally catches up to Penelope he is shocked. She's not the silly little girl he expected, but a beautiful woman with a sharp mind and an allure that cannot be ignored.

Now forced to kidnap Penelope in order to bring her home, Darius and his new charge spend the next several days-and nights-in very close quarters. Penelope wanted passion and adventure, but she never could have imagined the pleasures Darius can provide . . .

 Wicked Surrender is the 2nd book in USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, Amazon #1 Regency Sinners series.
Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Sinners, Regency Unlaced, Knight Security, and Alpha Series, have stronger sexual content and language than my other books.

Eight gentlemen known far and wide as The Sinners. Also agents for the Crown, they are each tasked with discovering which of eight ladies in Society has been acting as a spy for Napoleon. By fair means or foul.

Dante St Just, the Duke of Huntley, is less than pleased when he is asked to investigate the beautiful widow, Lady Isabella Aston. The two knew each other seven years ago, and parted badly. But neither can Dante bear the thought of passing Bella’s name on to one of his friends. If anyone is to seduce Bella into revealing whether or not she is a spy, then it will be him or no one. 

Bella is surprised, and then suspicious, when Dante St Just calls unexpectedly at her home. She becomes alarmed when, that very evening, he carries her off in his carriage. 

Alone with Dante, with not even a servant to act as chaperone, how is Bella to resist the helpless attraction she has always felt toward him?

Dante’s intention was to quickly confirm or disprove Bella’s innocence, after which he would either return her to London and the spymaster wishing to speak with her, or he would continue to keep her as his prisoner and the two of them would spend time together becoming reacquainted. Intimately.

But he had not fully taken into account his wild and uncontrollable response to Bella’s sensual beauty, or how it would affect his judgement where she is concerned.

All the books in the super sexy Regency Sinners series are standalone HEA stories. They are connected by the eight heroes search for the lady who is a traitor to England.
 Wicked Scandal is the 3rd book in USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, Amazon #1 Regency Sinners series.
Author’s Note: All the books in the very sexy Regency Sinners series are complete and HEA stories. The stories are connected by the friendship of the eight heroes.

Lord Sebastian Trentham, Marquis of Deveril, known to his close acquaintances as Devil, is the third of the eight gentlemen known as The Sinners, tasked with discovering which of eight ladies in Society has been acting as a spy for Napoleon. He is expected to do this by fair means or foul.

Alys doesn’t know whether to be distressed or angry when her brother informs her he has invited the Marquis of Deveril, along with several other of his male acquaintances, to join him for a weeklong shoot at their manor house in Worcestershire.

The last time the marquis visited Alys’s home, she discovered him with a pistol in his hand as he stood over the dead body of her father.

Devil is not looking forward to returning to Newcomb Manor and only accepted Sir Teddy Newcomb’s invitation because of the need to clear Alys Newcomb’s name of any wrongdoing. Not that she would thank Devil for it if she knew that was his intention. Alys believes she has every reason to dislike and distrust him, and nothing Devil says or does will convince her otherwise.

From the minute the two of them meet again, sexual tension flares into life and refuses to be extinguished. Much as Alys might fight against it. When circumstances force the two of them into a hasty betrothal that sexual attraction flares out of control. 

But if Devil didn’t kill Alys’s father, then the real murderer must still be at large…
