He’s a powerful lord bent on vengeance

Maxwell, the Duke of Pennington is a man focused on one thing: revenge. He’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goal, including marrying the beautiful, unpredictable granddaughter of the man he seeks reprisal against—whether Gabriella is willing or not. As Max inexplicably finds himself drawn to the spirited minx, unforeseen doubts and guilt arise.


She’s a dowerless orphan with no marriage prospects

Miss Gabriella Breckensole is astonished when the enigmatic Duke of Pennington turns his romantic attentions on her. Debonair and confident, he set her heart fluttering from their first meeting. Far beneath his station, Gabby never hoped to win his favor, and she soon risks losing her heart to the roguish lord.


Until she accidentally overhears Maxwell vowing to return her familial home to his dukedom and learns his courtship is a revenge-filled ploy. Even though he awakened feelings she never imagined possible, Gabriella now considers him an enemy. Max must make the impossible choice between retribution or forever losing the only woman to ever touch his heart.

London’s ballrooms and bedrooms thrive on scandal and decadent pleasure and the summer of 1814 will be no exception for the fourth Distinguished Rogue in Heather Boyd’s regency romances series.

Widowed beauty, Arabella Lawson, Lady Farnsworth, knows the value of independence after being trapped in a marriage that left her unfulfilled. Although she longs for a lover at last, she’s expected to chaperone her flirtatious niece during her first season. However, given the way the girl keeps disappearing every chance she gets, there is little hope of a good or speedy result. While searching for her charge yet again, she blunders into one of Lord Rothwell’s scandalous assignations. This time it’s Arabella’s turn to be on the receiving end of his hungry kisses, and she’s far from prepared to make the most of the opportunity.

Gossip may paint Merrick Bishop, the Earl of Rothwell, as a notorious scoundrel when it comes to women, but this season his intentions are honorable. Duty bound to marry, he’s determined to discreetly court an open-minded bride and prove the gossipmongers wrong by being on his very best behavior… until in his frustration, he mistakenly kisses the wrong lady and discovers that everything about the encounter feels so very right. Merrick never once believed he had a chance with shy Arabella, and when the unthinkable happens, she turns to him not for an affair or hopes of marriage but for his friendship and protection from her own family.

Can a rogue with a reputation for breaking hearts convince a widow who only hopes for an affair that their feelings are not only the stirrings of desire but the beginnings of the deepest and truest love?

When a fire destroys her home, Theodora Dalton loses not only her every last possession, but her beloved father as well. Her nearest neighbor, Quinn Ford, graciously offers temporary lodgings to Theodora and her mother, but if she’s going to see them on their feet sooner than later, she’ll need employment. To that end, she convinces the viscount to employ her as his secretary. In her new position, she can manage Quinn’s disastrously unorganized affairs—while also attempting to prove her father’s death was more than mere accident. She has only to avoid the incredibly irresistible distraction that is the viscount himself.

Quinn, Viscount Maitland, has paternal troubles of a different sort. The Earl of Templeton has forever attempted to use Quinn for his own gain, but just when he believes his father can sink no lower, he deals Quinn the ultimate betrayal, sending him into a tailspin—and straight into the pleasurable arms of his new secretary. Theodora is efficient, smart and lovely…and the more his fondness for her grows, the more she seems determined to keep their affair strictly about business and mutual pleasure, with no hint of permanence. It will take some maternal meddling and an act of vengeance for Theodora to see the potential in a lasting merger…hopefully before it’s too late.

Because love, no matter how hard won, is always worth fighting for.

One thing never changes from era to era—the longing for love and the sacrifices willingly made to achieve a happily ever after. This special romance collection includes three stories of dukes and their ladies, each a charming and humorous Regency romance with a dash of mystery & suspense.

A Diamond for a Duke: A dour duke and a wistful wallflower—an impossible match until fate intervenes. Jules, the Duke of Dandridge wants more than Jemmah Dament’s sweet kisses or her warming his bed. He must somehow convince her to gamble on a man who’s sworn never to love again.

Only a Duke Would Dare: A reluctant duke. A vicar’s daughter. A forbidden love. Victor, Duke of Sutcliffe ventures home, intent upon finding the most biddable and forgettable miss in Essex to wed. Except he finds himself powerless to resist Theadosia Brentwood—even if she is promised to another and the exact opposite of what he thought he wanted in a duchess.

A December with a Duke: He’s entirely the wrong sort of man. That’s what makes him so utterly right. After a horrific marriage, Everleigh vows to never marry again, but the enigmatic Duke of Sheffield is determined to woo the beautiful widow and make her his own.
