Can a reluctant hero save a runaway princess without losing his own heart? 

Adam McKendrick has earned the title “the Bountiful Baron” because of his reputation for helping beautiful blondes in trouble. When a lucky hand at cards wins him an ancient hunting lodge, he travels to the wilds of Scotland hoping to escape his reputation—and the hordes of women pursuing him. He certainly doesn’t expect his prize to include yet another damsel in distress looking for a hero.


Princess Giana has fled her kingdom—and the deadly assassins pursuing her—with only a handful of loyal staff to protect her. When the gorgeous gambler shows up at her refuge to claim his winnings, she has no choice but to pose as his maid.  


Adam’s clumsy—yet stunningly beautiful—new maid seems more inclined to give orders than to take them. He finds her both infuriating and irresistible. As his desire for Giana’s touch begins to consume him, Adam must decide if he wants to once again play the hero…or the rogue…

What’s a gentleman to do when he inherits a title, a fortune…and a mistress?

When legendary lover, the Marquess of Templeston, dies in the arms of his mistress, he charges his son and heir Drew Ramsey with the future care of all of his mistresses. Determined to honor the outrageous request, Drew returns home to bury his father and is stunned to find living on the grounds of Swanslea Park the one woman whose charms he could never resist.


 Kathryn Stafford abandoned Drew at the altar six years before and vanished in a cloud of mystery. She had hoped her feelings for him would fade, but when she comes face-to-face with the gorgeous new marquess, she discovers they have only deepened.


Drew is determined to keep his distance from the woman he believes to have been one of his father’s mistresses. But every yearning glance and sizzling touch draws him closer to Kathryn…and to the scandalous secret that drove them apart.

As a founding member of the Free Fellows League—a group of four gentlemen who signed a pledge to never wed when they were lads—Griffin, Viscount Abernathy, swears that he will put off marrying as long as possible.
