At a house party attended by both the duke and her aunt, Amelia is horrified at her aunt’s behavior and decides to hide away in their host’s library and gardens for the duration of their visit. On an evening walk through the maze she meets an older gentleman who intrigues and arouses her. She flees without learning his name, only to stumble across that same handsome gentleman in the library days later, where to Amelia's astonishment, he kisses her. And she kisses him back!

Amelia and the duke are caught in their passionate embrace by her aunt. Embarrassed at her own wanton behavior, Amelia flees the room believing he’s used her to avoid her aunt. After confronting her aunt, the duke does what he believes is the honorable thing and makes plans to marry Amelia.

Only he never asks her.

A not-so-merry widow...

The widowed Marchioness of Folkestone is notorious for her parties, her art collection, and her utter disregard for the rules. But Ellie Claiborne knows her destruction is near. The new marquess is her first lover -- the man whose sculpted body and sardonic grin haunt her every time she picks up her paintbrush. If he ever returns to claim his inheritance, her heart won't survive seeing him again.

A man determined to destroy her...

Nicholas Claiborne hasn't stepped foot in England since watching Ellie marry his cousin. He has no use for the gorgeous, heartless girl who betrayed him, or the title she abandoned him for. But when his business in India turns deadly, Nick must return to London to uncover a murderer -- and take revenge on the woman he couldn't force himself to forget.

A love they can't escape...

Nick hates Ellie's transformation from sweet debutante to jaded seductress. Ellie despises him for leaving her behind. Still, the sparks between them reignite the passion that should have been their destiny. As their demands of each other turn darker and a potential killer closes in, they must decide whether to guard the fragile remnants of their hearts -- or find a way to fall in love all over again.

What the reviewers say:

“Deeply moving, often painful and truly romantic, Sara Ramsey's third Muses of Mayfair book is a poignant journey from start to finish… Such a moving, immersive work that I couldn't stop reading until Ellie and Nick's story had played out. Sara Ramsey has written a deeply emotional, challenging and ultimately rewarding story that should be savored.” - Bridget, The Romance Reviews

“This book takes the [historical romance] genre to another level...The novel is filled with characters who are complex and compelling, who have stories of their own to tell...I found myself making excuses to extend my reading time just that bit further.” - Margaret Fisk, Tales to Tide You Over

“This is one of the sexier regencies I've read, so if you like steamy scenes it should be an auto-buy. It's a sexy romp, with a little intrigue...Recommended for lovers of sexy regency hijinks and revenge plots.” - Elyse, Goodreads

“Yet again I enjoyed the continuation of The Muses of Mayfair series by Sara Ramsey...It is so very easy to fall in love with the story of each one of these friends. Each woman is so very remarkable in her own right and so very strong.” - Robin, Romancing the Book

This is where it all started. One family defining honor, finding love, and building a family.

Miss Amelia Lands a Duke, the prequel novella ~ Spinster Amelia is a companion to her aunt when she finds herself deflecting a potential scandal by accepting a marriage proposal from the widowed eighth duke of Caversham. The affection and love that blossoms between them creates the foundation for their family to thrive for generations.

Caversham’s Bride ~ Desperation brings together Ren and Lia, two strong-willed lovers who will both have to learn to compromise if there is to be any hope for a future for them. Once love conquers their stubbornness there is no limit to the depth of passion they share.

Already His ~ Honor and trust are lessons that are not easily come by when they pertain to Elise and Michael, lovers who are both too proud to give quarter. But even the mighty fall when love finally brings them together. Once they realize they were both wrong about the other and they are free to love each other, they become the lovers they were meant to be all along.

Loving Sarah ~ Impulsive and adventurous Sarah never intended to turn her handsome captain’s life upside down by landing aboard his boat. Ian was running from his destiny while hiding aboard his ship and sailing the world. But when they are forced to marry to save their reputations, they both have to grow into their new roles as husband and wife, and becoming a family.

Lucky’s Lady ~ Lies, deception, forgiveness, and redemption. Encouraged by her dying husband to seek a sire for the child she desires, Mary-Michael decides who better to use for her purposes than Lucky, the handsome captain who will leave once his business with her husband’s shipyard is through. But neither of them counted on their instant passion leading to love.

Plus a special bonus transitional short story, WHAT THE FATES DECREE, introducing the next generation. Look for the first book in the new sub-series, The Titans of the Revolution, where the children of The Caversham Chronicles navigate their way in the changing world of Victorian England.
