A Gentleman For All Seasons

Free sample

 The tiny village of Hemshawe is the sort of place where nothing ever happens…until a handsome ex-soldier and his matchmaking sister let the imposing manor house at the edge of town. The friendly Londoners shake up the staid people of Hemshawe, and villagers see each other in a new and oh-so-appealing light. 


Suddenly long-sparring enemies become lovers, a town festival heralds a new start for a fallen woman and a dandy, and a man who has given up on love gets a second chance with the woman he never forgot. And the matchmaker herself? She won’t rest until she finds her own happily-ever-after… 


A Madness in Spring by Kate Noble 

Adam Sturridge has made Belinda Leonard’s blood boil since childhood, and the feeling is mutual. But when a would-be matchmaker arrives in the village of Hemshawe, she’d determined to erase the thin line between love and hate. Now, Belinda and Adam are faced with falling for someone they’ve always considered an enemy — can they overcome old prejudices and discover how to rub each other the right way? 


The Summer of Wine and Scandal by Shana Galen 

When viscount’s son and dandy Peregrine Lochley is temporarily exiled from London to the country for his misdeeds, the last thing he expects is to encounter an intriguing woman. But Caroline Martin has a secret to hide, and it just might be too scandalous for even this debauched rogue. 


Those Autumn Nights by Theresa Romain

Will this war-hardened officer triumph over his former lover…or will Bertie and Eliza give love a second chance? 

The Season for Loving by Vanessa Kelly 

Miss Georgie Gage, matchmaker extraordinaire, is resigned to life as a spinster—almost.

Când vine vorba de dorințe și plăceri, el este cel mai abil maestru... Căpitanul Aden St. George face parte din Regimentul de Gardă al Coroanei britanice. Însă aceasta este doar o acoperire pentru unul dintre cei mai buni spioni ai Angliei, însărcinat întotdeauna cu misiunile cele mai dificile, atât în interiorul, cât şi în afara graniţelor englezeşti. În viaţa personală, el preferă să stea departe de înalta societate frivolă, mai ales după modul în care mama sa a fost folosită de prinţul regent, viitorul rege George al IV-lea. Dar cea mai recentă dintre sarcinile sale îl obligă să o protejeze pe neconvenţionala şi energica Lady Vivien Shaw. S-o salveze din ghearele răpitorilor a fost partea uşoară. Însă greul vine în momentul în care trebuie să reziste în faţa frumuseţii ei. Căci datoria îi cere lui Aden să nu o scape din priviri – dar nu numai ochii îi sunt atrași fără scăpaare de tânăra rebelă, ci și buzele lui. Și pentru cineva care vede implicarea într-o relaţie ca pe o slăbiciune, aceasta este o nebunie pură şi delicioasă... Deşi Vivien îi este recunoscătoare lui Aden pentru ajutorul său, ea are secrete pe care trebuie să le ţină ascunse. Însă, pentru că bărbatul care a pus la cale răpirea ei este încă în libertate, are nevoie de protecţia chipeșului căpitan la fel de mult cum tânjeşte după atingerea lui... Vanessa Kelly este o autoare contemporană foarte apreciată, care a fost numită de Booklist una dintre „noile stele ale romanelor de dragoste istorice”. Cărțile sale plasate în perioada Regenței au câștigat importante premii ale genului, printre care și prestigiosul Maggie Award. Bulina: Bestseller USA Today

"Shana Galen's deliciously brooding hero and delightfully quirky heroine turn this tale of adventure into an endearing love story that kept me up all hours reading....Wonderful!" — SABRINA JEFFRIES New York Times bestselling author

Ewan Mostyn thinks a job as a duke's daughter's bodyguard will be easy—but Lady Lorraine has a few tricks up her sleeve that spark an undeniable passion

Fiercely loyal to his friends and comrades, Ewan Mostyn is the toughest in a group of younger sons of nobility who met as soldiers and are now trying desperately to settle back into peaceful Society. Ewan trusts his brawn more than his brains, but when he's offered a job watching the Duke of Ridlington's stubbornly independent daughter, he finds both are challenged.

Lady Lorraine wants none of her father's high-handed ways, and she'll do everything in her power to avoid her distressingly attractive bodyguard—until she lands herself in real trouble. Lorraine begins to see Ewan's protectiveness in a new light, and she can only hope that her stoic guardian will do for her what he's always done—fight for what he wants.

Vanessa Kelly
In Vanessa Kelly’s enchanting series, three young women descended from royalty overcome their scandalous beginnings to win the hearts of the ton’s most eligible men . . .
 
The illegitimate daughter of the Prince Regent might be expected to pursue various dubious professions. Actress, perhaps, or artist’s model. Even courtesan. Victoria Knight, however, has become a governess—a respectable choice, until she travels to Scotland to meet her new charges. The younger brothers of Nicholas Kendrick, Earl of Arnprior, aren’t children at all. They’re brawny, wild Highland men. As for the Earl, he’s handsome, guarded, and far too
compelling . . . especially for a woman hiding a dark secret.
 
Nick needs a proper teacher to transform his unmarriageable brothers—and a sensible, straight-laced wife for himself. Miss Knight seems to fit the bill on both counts. But he soon discovers there is more to Victoria than he thought. It’s not just her notorious origins, or the danger that’s followed her all the way to Scotland. It’s the fiery loyalty beneath that sedate façade. This, the real Victoria, is the woman Nick is starting to desire so desperately. And what an earl wants, he’ll use every seductive means to get . . .
