Violet Turpin has always lived for adventure and romance, a combination that has more than once gotten her into trouble. Her first attempt at a London debut was short and disastrous because her love of excitement far outstripped her concern for the proprieties. A few months later, she eloped with a sweet-talking fortune hunter and only saved from ruin in the nick of time. Now she’s determined to ride in fox hunts, even though that’s not something ladies do. Knowing all this, her brother asks his friend Lord Rushford to keep a close eye on her during her second attempt at a London Season—a task the earl is reluctant to take on, given his most inconvenient attraction to the madcap Miss Turpin.
His task is made harder by Violet’s plans for her time in London. Not only does she hope to find adventure and True Love, she is determined to meet and assist the fabled Saint of Seven Dials, whom she has long idolized. When a plausible rogue learns of her obsession with the Saint, he hatches a plot of his own to take advantage of it—and her. Rush will have his hands full keeping Violet out of trouble as he tries to catch whoever is impersonating the Saint of Seven Dials, all while trying to reconcile himself to the betrothal he unwisely agreed to the previous year. Will he and Violet realize that True Love is right under their noses in time to prevent a lifetime of regrets?

Due to a lost wager, the Duke of Ravenham is obliged to bring a pretty little nobody from the country into fashion among the high-sticklers of London Society. Ravenham would never refuse a debt of honor, no matter how unorthodox, so he overlooks Miss Gordon’s vulgar relations to do what is necessary, escorting the unsophisticated chit to balls, etc. But what he expects to be an irksome duty turns out to be something quite different as he falls under the spell of his protege’s innocent charm. When he lost that wager, he definitely never counted on losing his heart as well!
First impressions can be deceiving.
Miss Gabriella Gordon only came to London at her mother’s and sister’s insistence, for she’d much rather assist in running her father’s veterinary practice than attempt to fit into fashionable society. No sooner has she arrived in London than the exalted (and exceedingly handsome) Duke of Ravenham comes to call. The reason is less than flattering, however: due to a lost wager, the Duke is forced to bring Gabriella into fashion, a “favor” she would certainly refuse if her family would let her. But the more time she spends in the dashing Duke’s company, the more conflicted she feels— particularly when she discovers they have more in common than she ever dared dream.

Nerdy astronomy geek Marsha, M to her few friends, has never been anybody special. Orphaned as an infant and reluctantly raised by an overly-strict “aunt,” she’s not even sure who she is. M’s dream of someday escaping tiny Jewel, Indiana and making her mark in the world seems impossibly distant until hot new quarterback Rigel inexplicably befriends her. As Rigel turns his back on fawning cheerleaders to spend time with M, strange things start to happen: her acne clears up, her eyesight improves to the point she can ditch her thick glasses, and when they touch, sparks fly—literally! When M digs for a reason, she discovers deep secrets that will change her formerly humdrum life forever . . . and expose her to perils she never dreamed of.
