Dear Reader,
 
Long before I wrote my sexy paranormal romances, I wrote traditional Regency romances as Debbie Raleigh. I’m delighted that three of my favorites are now available once more. Here is a trilogy about love, marriage, and the best laid plans . . .
 
After forty years of devoted service, Vicar Humbly is eager to retire to his pleasant cottage and tend to his garden. But before he can live in peace, he must salve his conscience by traveling to the homes of three couples who marriages have troubled him. Though he is a man of the cloth, Vicar Humbly knows that desire sometimes needs a little help from unexpected places . . . and that he may have to be less the Vicar, and more Cupid’s emissary . . .
 
A PROPER MARRIAGE
When free-spirited Adele Morrow finds herself living a dull existence as wife to a noted scholar, she secretly longs to be carried off by a dashing rogue who will drive her wild with desire. And her husband secretly misses the uninhibited beauty he’d proudly tamed. It seems that every proper marriage deserves a bit of impropriety . . .
 
A CONVENIENT MARRIAGE
Shy, awkward heiress Beatrice Chaswell is astonished when devastatingly handsome Gabriel Baxtor asks her to be his bride—until she discovers he married her for her money. That may be true, but Gabriel has discovered that his convenient wife is the woman of dreams. Now he must woo her all over again . . .
 
A SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE
Ravishing Victoria Mallory was lucky to find the perfect, gentlemanly fiancé—until a mix-up leaves her locked in a delicious midnight embrace—with another man. Now to avoid scandal she must wed a seductive rogue—one who is equally furious to find himself shackled. But when an intruder breaches their estate they must unite to avert peril—and discover a priceless love . . .
 
I’ve fallen in love with these timeless books all over again, and believe that you will too.

EVERY SMALL TOWN HAS A SECRET
The rolling fields outside Curry, Oklahoma, are a beautiful spot to ramble on an early spring day . . . and a lonely place to die. Among the prairie grass and wildflowers, a killer kneels beside a curled-up figure, plunging a syringe beneath skin to deliver the fatal dose. And as the victim’s last breath mingles with the air, it sends a warning out to the world: This is just the beginning.
 
AND THIS ONE
Rejecting her judge father’s prestigious connections, Ellie Guthrie opened her own law firm in Curry. But something strange is going on. Ellie’s tires are slashed. Dead rats are dumped on her patio. Her neighbor, former FBI agent Nate Marcel, insists on watching out for her. And then bodies begin turning up—supposed overdoses that Nate suspects are something much more sinister.
 
IS WORTH KILLING FOR
There’s a killer in town, toying with her, drawing both Ellie and Nate into a web of murder and vengeance. To find answers, she’ll have to unearth this small community’s dark and twisted past . . . before it’s her turn to die.
 
Praise for Pretend You’re Safe
 
 “Alexandra Ivy gives readers a nice balance of romance and suspense in her fast-paced, 
well-plotted novel.”
—Kat Martin, New York Times bestselling author 
 
“A satisfying mystery . . . Ivy's clever foreshadowing keeps the tension high throughout this 
fast-moving tale, and the romance sizzles.”
 —Publishers Weekly
 
“A pulse-raising romantic thriller.”

#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey takes you on a captivating adventure in 1880s Montana where passions and gold fever run high as an American heiress turns to a rugged mountain man to help her locate her father’s fortune.

Summoned back to Philadelphia from the social whirl in London, Violet Mitchell never expected to find her brothers living on the edge of financial ruin while their father seeks new wealth in Montana’s gold fields. With the family’s home and social standing at risk, Violet makes a drastic decision.

Morgan Callahan rode away from his family’s cattle ranch to make his own fortune. Now as he finishes exploiting a mother lode of silver, a young woman claiming to be his late partner’s daughter turns up wanting to be taken to her father’s mine. Suspecting that the pretty schemer works for the mining outfit that is trying to steal his land, he has no qualms about snatching her and holding her at his camp where she can do no harm.

Morgan underestimated the new thorn in his side. Determined to claim what rightfully belongs to her family, Violet summons up the courage, grit, and spunk to cope with the hazards and discomforts of an untamed land and the disturbingly masculine stranger who holds her fate in his hands. But an error of judgment brings down a hailstorm of calamity and danger that upends her plans and deepens her bond to a man who is not the brilliant match a lady wishes to make but could be all that a strong, passionate woman desires.
