Miss Jane Fairfield has made a career of social disaster. She wears outrageous gowns and says even more outrageous things. The only reason she's invited anywhere is because of her immense dowry--which is all part of her plan to avoid marriage and keep the fortune-hunters at bay.

Mr. Oliver Marshall is the illegitimate son of a duke. His acceptance in society is tenuous as it is. If he wants any kind of career at all, he must do everything right. He doesn't need to come to the rescue of the wrong woman. He certainly doesn't need to fall in love with her. But there's something about the lovely, courageous Jane that he can't resist...even though it could mean the ruin of them both.

An idealistic suffragette...

Miss Frederica "Free" Marshall has put her heart and soul into her newspaper, known for its outspoken support of women's rights. Naturally, her enemies are intent on destroying her business and silencing her for good. Free refuses to be at the end of her rope...but she needs more rope, and she needs it now. 

...a jaded scoundrel... 

Edward Clark's aristocratic family abandoned him to die in a war-torn land, so he survived the only way he could: by becoming a rogue and a first-class forger. When the same family that left him for dead vows to ruin Miss Marshall, he offers his help. So what if he has to lie to her? She's only a pawn to use in his revenge. 

...and a scandal seven years in the making. 

But the irrepressible Miss Marshall soon enchants Edward. By the time he realizes that his cynical heart is hers, it's too late. The only way to thwart her enemies is to reveal his scandalous past...and once the woman he loves realizes how much he's lied to her, he'll lose her forever.

Courier to the Colonies Becomes Hot Lover and Cold Killer in Seaswept Abandon, by Jo Goodman

1781 London, England and the Colonies of Virginia and New York
When the alluring green-eyed Rae McClellan agreed to be a courier for the Colonies, she never dreamed that on her very first mission she'd coldly kill one man—hotly love another—and land on the private schooner of a British sympathizer.
Jericho Smith never lacks for a willing woman, but when his gaze locks with Rae's, he knows no other will satisfy him this night. He's also mistaken his contact for a wench, igniting a mutual passion that's about to prove costly for them both.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Olivia Drake, a steamy Regency romance...

A devoted daughter goes undercover to clear her father’s name...

When her scholarly father is wrongfully accused of being the Wraith, the famed jewel thief who’s been fleecing the aristocratic set of London, Claire Hollybrooke will do anything to clear his name.

Claire suspects he was set up by the noble grandfather she’s never met. Vowing to expose him, she goes undercover as Mrs. Clara Brownley, the chaperone for her cousin, Lady Rosabel. But her plan to be the ‘invisible’ servant quickly falls apart when Simon Croft, Earl of Rockford, who is supposed to be wooing Lady Rosabel, can’t keep his eyes off of the dynamic lady’s maid.

As the Earl of Rockford, Simon must marry to ensure an heir for his name. Under familial pressure, he is reluctantly courting Lady Rosabel...but she pales in comparison to her beautiful and spirited chaperone, the undercover Claire.

Unbeknownst to Claire, Simon secretly works for Bow Street and is the very man who put her father behind bars. As Claire digs deeper into who the real thief is, her time spent with the handsome and rakish Earl of Rockford increasingly distracts her from her mission...even as everything she thought she understood about her father is called into question.

As Simon must make a choice between who his family wants him to marry and the woman his heart desires, Claire must also choose...is her disdain for the aristocracy worth missing out on the love of a lifetime?

“A romantic suspense that not only keeps you turning the pages, but turns the tables on you until you’re breathless. A major craftsman of the genre.” –RT Bookclub

“Elegantly written and subtly sexy.” –Booklist

“A delightful fast-paced story with charming characters, great dialogue, and plenty of sexual tension.” –Rendezvous

“Tremendous...exhilarating story line...Claire is a delight.” –Midwest Book Review

“A wonderfully written Regency-era romance chock full of engaging characters and a sleuthing pair of lovebirds. A non-stop page turner.” —romancereaderatheart.com
In the first in a dazzling new series, New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath introduces the Hellions of Havisham—three charismatic rogues destined to lose their hearts . . .

After six unsuccessful Seasons, Miss Minerva Dodger chooses spinsterhood over fortune-hungry suitors. But thanks to the Nightingale Club, she can at least enjoy one night of pleasure. At that notorious establishment, ladies don masks before choosing a lover. The sinfully handsome Duke of Ashebury is more than willing to satisfy the secretive lady's desires—and draws Minerva into an exquisite, increasingly intimate affair.

A man of remarkable talents, Ashe soon deduces that his bedmate is the unconventional Miss Dodger. Intrigued by her wit and daring, he sets out to woo her in earnest. Yet Minerva refuses to trust him. How to court a woman he has already thoroughly seduced? And how to prove that the passion unleashed in darkness is only the beginning of a lifetime's pleasure . . . ?

LORRAINE HEATH always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. When she read a romance novel, she not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA's prestigious RITA®. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.
