~RITA Finalist for Best Historical Romance~


Clara Becker is a supremely gifted compose - a talent of little to use to a woman in 1830s Europe. Her compositions only have worth when they are published under her brother's name, yet this deception barely enables them to scrape out a living in the poorest quarter of London.


Darien Reynard, the most celebrated musician in Europe, pursues success with a single-minded intensity. When he hears Becker's compositions, he knows that this music will secure his place in history. Darien tracks the composer down and, with some difficulty, convinces the man to tour with him. Mr. Becker agrees, but with the most unusual condition that he bring along his sister...


Darien’s unexpected desire for Clara jeopardizes the entire tour, but Clara must protect more than her heart. If he discovers her secret, her family’s new found fortune - and their very reputation - will be destroyed.


Set against the glittering backdrop of 19th century celebrity, Sonata for a Scoundrel is the newest full-length historical romance novel from USA Today bestselling author Anthea Lawson.

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.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: For fans of Jo Goodman we bring you one of her earliest books freshly edited by Jo Goodman herself for today's readers. Enjoy!
