‘A rare jewel’ Gimme The Scoop

Inferior and seduction are bitter tasting words...

How could Caro love and hate the same man? How could she be foolish enough to harbour that love for years; to hide herself away from the world because of her embarrassment over her failure to be loved in return? Because she is a fool...

Yet Rob Marlow sees not that but courage in her, and this beautiful young man, who gives her back the strength she's lost is someone she longs to cling to for the physical comfort she has missed since the end of her marriage.

Integrity, idealism and honour are at the heart of Rob Marlow, and yet he knows that perhaps pride is his weakness, but he thought it his only possible weakness until he spends a summer with his sister and discovers a new addiction, Caro, his brother-in-law's dependent sister.

A gorgeously romantic book in the Regency romance series, The Marlow Family Secrets.

About the author

Jane is qualified to the equivalent of a Masters Degree in People Management and is fascinated by the things which craft people’s personalities, so she has great fun exploring these through characters. She lives in the United Kingdom near the Regency City of Bath and has just bought her 400 year old dream home. History has always tempted her imagination and she loves researching and also exploring ruins and houses to get ideas. She equally loves a love story.
Jane has always aspired to writing a historical novel so when she was thirty she put it on her ‘to do before I am forty’ list. She completed her first novel ten years ago, never sent it anywhere then started the next. She’s not stopped writing since, and escaping into a mental world of fiction is a great painkiller to help fight off her Ankylosing Spondylitis.

For fans of Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Sabrina Jeffries: the elegantly seductive third historical romance in Isabella Bradford’s Breconridge Brothers trilogy.
 
Lord Rivers Fitzroy is as charming and sought-after as his rakish elder brothers, though he immerses himself more in dusty books and scholarly pursuits than in bawdy houses. Yet, Hell-bent on making the most of his remaining bachelorhood now that his father insists he marry, Rivers becomes the favorite of a troupe of Italian dancers. One night, after a performance, the handsome lord is challenged with a most provocative wager: Turn the players’ meek and mousy cousin into the first lady of the London stage.
 
But Lucia di Rossi is not what she seems. Scorned by the rest of her family, Lucia longs for the respect and stardom of a great actress. Rivers’s wager could be the answer to all her hopes—so long as he understands that she wants to be an actress, not his mistress. The two commence her metamorphosis in earnest—even as passion begins to take center stage. As Lucia’s dreams come true, she fears that it may be Rivers, not she, who is the master performer. Is he only making her believe he cares? Has she found the spotlight only to lose her heart—or will the final curtain reveal a love strong enough to last?

Praise for A Reckless Desire
 
“Isabella Bradford’s remake of the My Fair Lady trope is exquisite. What I love the most is how Bradford’s canvas of words treats the reader to a literary work of art. . . . A Reckless Desire is the kind of love story that makes me melt.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers
 
“For those who adore Cinderella and Pygmalion plots, Bradford’s third installment of the Breconridge Brothers series is perfection. With its wit and heart-tugging emotions, this winning tale steals readers’ hearts.”—RT Book Reviews
 
“A steamy romance with a unique storyline . . . The twists and turns within the story will keep readers turning pages. . . . The secondary characters add some wit and humor to A Reckless Desire, and the dialogue is fresh and excellently written.”—Fresh Fiction
 
“A wonderful story of two vastly different people from opposite ends of the social ladder who find each other and fall in love.”—The Reading Wench
Daring Rescue and Escape to the Colonies in the Historical Romance, Crystal Passion, by Jo Goodman

1775 London, England and the Colony of Virginia
Ashley Lynne never expected kindness from her guardian, the Duke of Linfield. But being betrothed by him to a much older man she hardly knew was unthinkable. Worse was the cost of her resistance—awakening from a drugged sleep in the bedchamber of a dark-haired, steel-eyed stranger.
In England on business, Captain Salem McClellan assumed the lovely young woman curled up in his bed was only an evening's entertainment supplied by the Duke. But Ashley's terrified protests were proof enough of her innocence—and a powerful inspiration to rescue her.
From the gloomy docks of London to the lush green hills of Virginia, Salem and Ashley embark on a journey that exposes scandalous family secrets, and plunges them into the American Revolution where they fight for freedom, and the promise of each other...forever.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: For fans of Jo Goodman we bring you one of her earliest books freshly edited, by Jo Goodman herself, for today's readers. Enjoy!
