In Vanessa Kelly’s captivating series, three young women are descended from royalty—in the most improper way. But that doesn’t stop them from pursuing lives rich in adventure. . .

Lia Kincaid, illegitimate daughter of the Duke of York, comes from a long line of notorious women. Raised by her grandmother, formerly mistress to the late Marquess of Lendale, she has little hope of a respectable marriage. But the new marquess, her childhood friend, Jack Easton, would make a very desirable protector . . . if he weren’t too honorable to take her to bed.

It’s bad enough being saddled with a title he never desired. Now Jack must resist the beautiful woman he desires far too much. Duty calls, and he is duty-bound to choose a wealthy bride. But then Lia makes another outrageous suggestion: asking Jack to devise some tests to find her the perfect paramour. Tests that involve flirting, kissing, and other pleasurable pursuits. Tests that, in a matter of weeks, could transform friendship into the ton’s greatest scandal, igniting a passion even duty can’t deny. . .

Vanessa Kelly
She is difficult, demanding, and at times, quite fierce. And Dr. John Blackmore can't take his eyes off her. The Countess of Randolph is the most striking woman he has ever seen. . .and the most infuriating patient he has ever tended.

Mired in responsibility, Bathsheba doesn't have time to convalesce in the country. She should be in London, hunting for a wealthy new lover to pay off her late husband's vast debts, not dallying with a devastatingly handsome doctor.

But it is only a matter of time until the good doctor and the obstinate countess will have to contend with the sparks that fly between them. And once their bodies surrender, their hearts may follow. . .

Praise for Vanessa Kelly and Sex and the Single Earl

"A sensual treat!" -Anna Campbell

"Successfully marrying the tart wit of a traditional Regency romance with the steamy passion of today's Regency historicals isn't easy, but Kelly proves to be more than capable." –Booklist

"Guaranteed to satisfy even the most passionate romance reader." --Teresa Medeiros, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Plaid

Their marriage was convenient. . .

Simon St. James, fifth Earl of Trask, knows he could do worse in the marriage of convenience department. Sophie Stanton may be a bit of a social liability, with her ungovernable ways and flighty nature, but Simon has responsibilities as an earl that far outweigh happiness in the household. And as for happiness in the bedroom. . .he has to admit he sees Sophie's potential in that arena. . .

Their passion was not!

But Sophie isn't some bargaining chip to be traded, and she's not about to let Simon St. James tell her how to live her life--even though she has nurtured a crush on the handsome young earl for as long as she can remember. If his idea of courtship is telling her what to do, then she is not interested, or at least she is trying not to be. But when his scolding words turn to scorching kisses, suddenly Sophie starts paying attention. . .

Vanessa Kelly
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

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 . . .
