He’s a scientist who studies the stars. She’s an astrologer who predicts the future. Can a lonely witch save a handsome unbeliever from his own doom?

The Lonely Witch

While creating zodiac charts for her eccentric and mysterious Malcolm relations, Lady Azenor Dougall — a talented astrologer — realizes the alignment of the stars poses a fatal threat to her beloved siblings. To protect those she loves, she flees her Scots home... and searches for an answer.

The Handsome Scientist

Lord Theophilus Ives, heir presumptive to the Marquess of Ashford, is a renowned astronomer who has perfected a telescope capable of seeing beyond Saturn’s moons. If only the women his all-male family attracted were as predictable as the laws of science. Nonetheless, Theo is undaunted by the tumult of his life — until the day the luscious Lady Azenor arrives to warn them that his brother, the Marquess, is in terrible danger.

The Magic in the Stars

Can Lady Azenor Dougall convince a laughing disbeliever of peril? And can she escape the fate her stars predict if she lingers too long in Lord Theo’s enthralling company?

“Patricia Rice weaves magical love stories” - Mary Jo Putney, NY Times Bestselling Author

Discover the second book in NY Times bestseller Patricia Rice's Unexpected Magic historical romance series!

 

If you were desperate--if your family's existence depended on your ability to use an uncertain magic--would you use it?

What if using that power--or not--controlled the rest of your life and happiness?

 

The death of Celeste Rochester’s father on the voyage from Jamaica to London leaves her and her young siblings nearly penniless in a foreign country. Forced to battle lawyers for her inheritance and the roof over their heads, Celeste has only one weapon: her mysteriously compelling voice.

Having become a barrister to fight injustice, Lord Erran inexplicably incites a riot with his first impassioned speech. Barred from the courtroom, he acts as solicitor for his brother, the Marquess of Ashford. His first job for Ashford requires moving tenants from his brother’s townhouse—a simple task until Erran meets the uncommon beauty living there and realizes she is under attack.

Erran cannot heave Celeste’s desperate family from their home, even though his blind brother needs the property. Nor can he sit back and watch unseen enemies do the job for him.

Can Celeste trust him to defeat their foe? And if Erran succeeds in saving the lady with the intoxicating voice, can he bear to evict her—when she alone understands the turbulence ruining his life? 

"With unconventional recurring characters, passion, and a bit of danger, this is a compelling reader from a master of whimsy, mayhem, and laughter." RT Book Reviews

Discover the third book in NY Times bestseller Patricia Rice's Unexpected Magic historical romance series!

A blind marquess who detects lies... A spinster who hides behind deceit... Can even magic bring them together?

Scorned by suitors for her statuesque size, Harriet Stansbury bolts when her abusive stepfather begins negotiating with impecunious aristocrats to sell her for her dowry. When opportunity offers, she daringly takes a position in an eccentric household until she can claim her fortune.

Once a dashing rakehell, Duncan Ives, Marquess of Ashford lost his eyesight in a murderous assault. Abandoned by his fiancee, unable to ride the vast fields of his estate, he vents his frustration on political reform. On impulse, he hires the intriguing smoky-voiced Harriet even though he knows she's lying--like him--with almost every word she speaks. 

At first Harriet is a godsend, oddly anticipating what he needs and abating his worst rages. But when her stepfather accuses Duncan of ruining her, the scandal threatens everything he's salvaged from the wreckage of his life. For the sake of his country, Duncan agrees to marriage. With her secret gift of empathy, Harriet isn't so certain. She's falling in love with the impossible marquess, but dare she risk her wounded heart for a man who can't love her? And can Duncan learn to trust a woman whose voluptuous curves paralyze his good sense, but who is far more than she seems?

In an enchanting novella from #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander, eligible viscount Winfield Elliott searches for a bride and discovers that love may be lovelier the second--or even third--time around. . .

Allow Me To Explain. . .

Some say I do not take my engagements seriously. Nonsense. What man with no interest in marriage would find himself proposing not once, but three times? And each time, I've felt certain that this, at last, is the absolutely, positively, perfect woman.

Miss Felicia Whitingdon, for instance, has youth, beauty, style, grace--and a handsome fortune. Lady Lucille Eustice is a widow of impeccable social standing, and a balm to my soul. Then there is Miss Caroline Hibbitt, sweet and charming in every way. Any one of these intoxicating treasures could make a man happy. Any one of them could be an ideal wife. But which--if any of them--will it be?

"For love, laughter, and lots of fun, read Victoria Alexander." --Stephanie Laurens, New York Times bestselling author

"This Victorian yuletide romance provides erotic sizzle and delectably clever dialogue on every page." –USA Today on His Mistress by Christmas

New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award-winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and has never looked back. Victoria grew up traveling the country as an Air Force brat and is now settled in a very old house in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two allegedly grown children and two bearded collies. She firmly believes housework is a four-letter word, there are no calories in anything eaten standing up, procrastination is an art form, and it's never too soon to panic.

From NYT bestselling author Patricia Rice—the first in a new contemporary romantic mystery series featuring her Malcolm/Ives family!

 


A lawman haunted by his past . . . a scientist haunted by her future.


 Samantha Moon arrives in Hillvale— population 325 lives and countless ghosts—in a fog as thick as the one circling the aging mountain town. Bereft of friends and family, money and memory, all she has to her name is a stray cat . . . but that's apparently enough for the people of Hillvale to take her in.

 L.A. investigator Chen Ling Walker's problem is too many memories. He's come to bury his tragic past in this remote California town, where his father vanished years before. Ever watchful, Walker sees how Sam's arrival disturbs the deceptive peace of Hillvale. Old bones lead to new death, stirring ancient fears and feuds.

 Sam will need Walker's help to uncover the truth of who she is and face the burden that brings. But how can he accept a reality that stretches beyond the borders of what he knows -- one that contains spirits, psychics, and imaginary voices—the weirdness that ruined his life before?

 And if they survive what lies ahead, will they find any way to make a future together?
