Donna Smith has always dreamed of seeing how the other half lives. When she finds herself out of a job, she uses her downtime to finally get out and see the world, and her first destination is to witness a royal wedding in Avce.

With the first item checked off her bucket list, she sets out to check off the remaining items one by one…as soon as she can figure out how to sneak into the reception undetected and find a handsome stranger to lock lips with.

Blackwell Oberlin, the Duke of Oakley Woods, promised his father he’d one day marry, but on one condition: she has to be someone unlike anyone he’s ever met. When on a whim he plants a kiss on a beautiful stranger, he thinks he’s met the one, but before he knows what’s happened, she’s nowhere to be found and he can’t stop thinking about her.

Using his money and influence, he hires a security team and a girl with a sophisticated algorithm to find her. But when he does, will it lead to a happily-ever-after?

About the author

 USA Today Bestselling Author, Victoria Pinder grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun. She’s worked in engineering, after passing many tests proving how easy Math came to her. Then hating her life at the age of twenty four, she decided to go to law school. Four years later, after passing the bar and practicing very little, she realized that she hates the practice of law. She refused to one day turn 50 and realize she had nothing but her career and hours at a desk. After realizing she needed change, she became a high school teacher. Teaching is rewarding, but writing is a passion.

During all this time, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s dreams, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.

She’s always been determined. She is amazing, adventurous and assured on a regular basis. Her website is  www.victoriapinder.com.

Remy must find a bride and hires the Royal matchmaker, only to get denied. Cassidy’s former childhood best friend will never be the one. However his grandmother’s dying wish puts them on a collision course.


Cassidy Bright is infamous in Avce for her ability to help others find love. Her algorithm has never failed. Behind the scenes, though, no one knows who she based her program on, and she’d like to keep it that way. But when her muse requests her services, she’s not so inclined to oblige.

Remington Burke IV, the Earl of Sky, has everything he wants, except a wife. At the urging of his ailing grandmother, he seeks out help from the only person he knows can help him – Cassidy. Marriage is almost guaranteed, but she’s reluctant to let him see his match. The longer they squabble about it, the more attracted to her he becomes.

Could the woman of his dreams be the geeky girl with the magical algorithm or has desperation clouded his judgment?

Slightly pampered lady. One sexy French, vineyard owner. An unexpected romance set in both wine country and Paris between two opposites with almost nothing in common except undeniable chemistry.


Lady Chelsea Bright is many things, but a romantic is not one of them. With her family in dire straits, she must marry a wealthy suitor to ensure their security, but that means she’ll have to sacrifice her art and travel to Paris to meet Duc Astorre Manfredi, and never submit her art for a showing that was set up for her.

Alexandre Travers has one goal in mind – to rebuild his family’s vineyard in the South of France. That means he must concentrate his efforts on producing the best grapes possible and completely rebranding the organization because there’s no room for error. The last thing he needs is distractions, but that’s exactly what he gets when a distracted driver crashes her car on his property and destroys all his hard work.

Chelsea needs a ride to Paris but volunteers to stay and help repair the property and despite the trouble she’s caused, but these two opposites soon find themselves growing closer. Soon, that budding friendship begins to look and feel like love, but is it enough to make Chelsea abandon her plans and begin anew?

 This USA Today Bestselling Author includes one House of Morgan novels, and is over 250 pages of dazzling romance and family drama! Fans of Jackie Collins, Danielle Steele and Bella Andre will love this series.
Heir to a billion-dollar fortune, Peter Morgan has a healthy ego and cynical view on women. Abandoned by his mother and raised by a controlling, manipulative father, Peter trusts no one, especially with his heart. He knows he can have any woman he wants, but he also knows they are only after him for the money. 

He’s always kept his women at arm’s length, never letting anyone get close or stick around for long. It’s not like he’s afraid of commitment, he just chooses to be smart. So when his brother makes a bet that Peter can’t date the same woman for 30 days, the game is on. Peter is sure he can woo for one month and then walk away heart unscathed, but the woman his brother picks changes all the rules.

Former Marine Belle Jordan has lived through the scandal of being jilted at the altar. Now she protects her heart, knowing she can never go through that kind of heartbreak again. Now, the brother of the woman who tore her life apart is pursuing her with an intensity that is hard to resist. Peter Morgan is gorgeous, sexy, and rich beyond her imagination. Belle has no idea what he could see in her. She’s certainly not like the rich and glamorous women he usually dates. Her brain says to stay far away, but her heart wants to trust his seductive words. 

Before long, Peter finds that Belle is turning his cynical world on its head and awakening his long-dormant heart. And when the truth comes out about the secret bet, Peter fears he may lose the one woman who can look past the dollar signs to see the man behind the throne.
