 A desperate woman…a dangerous man…

London society knows Hart Moreland, the Earl of Perth, as the perfect gentleman—remote, sophisticated, elegant. But Mercy Coltrane remembers him as “Duke”, the steely-eyed gunfighter who shot her six years earlier in a Texas kidnapping gone wrong. When she needs someone to find her missing brother, she decides the earl would be the perfect man for the job.   

Hart had returned to London to escape his dark past, never dreaming it would follow him in the form of a flame-haired beauty with blackmail on her mind. When Mercy threatens to expose his scandalous secrets unless he helps her, he is forced to engage her in a tantalizing game of wits, his only weapons masterful touches and stolen kisses. 

Mercy knows she is taking a risk by striking a bargain with the devil. But when Hart draws her into his irresistible embrace, tempting her to surrender all she holds dear, she realizes the greatest danger just might be to her own heart…

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.

 The cynic and the enchantress…

 

Lord Greyson Sheffield does not believe in magic or love. He has devoted his life to exposing frauds who scam innocents by preying on their hunger to believe. Only one woman ever tempted him to surrender his cynicism—Francesca Walcott, the stunning young beauty who took society by storm with her supernaturalskills. But Grey is forced to bare her secrets as well, shattering her world and forcing her to flee London forever.  


 

When Grey travels to the Scottish Highlands to investigate reports of a young witch in the eccentric village of Little Firkin, he is stunned to discover the girl’s sensible companion is none other than the same Francesca Walcott who so enchanted him all those years ago. Francesca is now a ravishing woman fully equipped to challenge his cynicism with her beguiling wit.


 

The stern yet striking nobleman has haunted Francesca’s dreams for years. Determined to protect both her young companion and the one secret Grey must never discover, Fanny does her best to resist his undeniable charms. But as passion sparks and danger swirls around them, they both discover that no one can resist the most powerful enchantment of all—the magic of true love…

 Book 1 “The Wedding Planner” Series

What’s a wedding planner to do when love disrupts her best laid plans?

When actress and part-time schemer Letty Potts steps off the train into the charming village of Little Bidewell, she has no intention of masquerading as the most sought after wedding planner in all of Victorian London—Lady Agatha Whyte. Letty has vowed to go straight, but when the bride’s wealthy family welcomes her with open arms, she has no choice but to assume the role of a lifetime and plan the most delightful wedding England has ever seen.

Only one man—the dark and dashing war hero, Sir Elliot March—suspects her ruse. As a man who has sworn off both love and laughter, Elliot is dismayed when Letty’s unconventional way of thinking, her saucy wit, and her teasing dimples arouse far more than just his suspicions.

As the wedding day approaches and Letty’s charade threatens to unravel into a tangled skein of danger and scandal, she yearns to trust her secrets to Sir Elliot—the one man who possesses the power to lock her away forever. But when he sweeps her into his arms for a forbidden kiss, she realizes her heart is already his prisoner…

 A rake in tarnished armor…

Desdemona Carlisle has spent most of her young life dreaming of a knight in shining armor. When a dashing figure in midnight-black riding a snow-white steed comes to rescue her from the ruffians who have kidnapped her, she believes her destiny has finally arrived. She surrenders herself to the masked stranger’s embrace only to discover her rescuer is none other than Harry Braxton, the scoundrel who stole her heart when she was just a girl, adding it to his collection of exotic treasures as if it were just another trinket. 

Harry Braxton doesn’t want to be any woman’s knight-errant. He plays the role of notorious rake to hide the dangerous secret that has kept him from offering Desdemona his own heart. But his tarnished armor soon begins to crumple beneath the irresistible assault of Desdemona’s sparkling wit, her dazzling beauty, her teasing and tender touch. As a legendary treasure hunter, he never dreamed he’d be forced to give up the most priceless treasure of all.  

When Lord Ravenscroft, Harry’s aristocratic cousin, comes courting, Desdemona makes a startling discovery. She might yearn for a hero, but what she really needs is a man—the only man who can fulfill all of her desires…
