Gambling with your reputation has never been so much fun!


The Disaster at Almack’s was the beginning of the end for Miss Honor Barnes, even though her part in it was small. With her reputation in tatters, she must look for ways to secure her comfort and safety…which is where wealthy tradesman, Sebastian Boothe, comes in. And if it means a daring gamble at the card table to win her way into his bed, it’s a chance she’s willing to take.


Sebastian is just enough of a rake to bow to Honor’s wicked wishes, but he has more than fun on his mind. His entire fortune is in danger, thanks to the underhanded machinations of Lord James Grey. With time running out to prove he is the rightful owner of the profits of his recent trade mission to India, he is faced with the impossible unfairness of a commoner challenging the nobility.


But Sebastian has an ace in his corner in the form of Honor and her skills. Together, they can set a trap to take down the most notorious cheat in the ton…if Sebastian can learn to trust Honor first.


A light-hearted, fun, SUPER steamy, Regency romp—a quick read, not to be taken too seriously.

For decades, Lord Mark Gatwick has been known as the best friend of nefarious villain, Lord Theodore Shayles. But the truth is that Mark couldn’t despise Shayles more. After executing his revenge against Shayles for a nightmarish event that happened over twenty years ago, Mark is on the verge of finding the peace that has eluded him his whole life. 


Until a bride he never wanted shows up on his doorstep…


Angelique LeClair has faced many challenges growing up as the daughter of a black man and a white woman, not quite light-skinned enough to pass, in her Louisiana home. But her biggest challenge of all comes with the shock of learning that, in order to inherit the money she desperately needs to keep from falling into destitution, she must travel to England to marry a distant cousin she’s never seen. She is determined to make the best of a bad situation.

Until she discovers that her groom is in catastrophic danger…


When Lord Shayles is released from prison, he vows to stop at nothing until Mark is dead. When Shayles learns about Angelique, his deadly intentions take a sickening turn. Mark must risk his life for the woman he never expected would be his last chance for redemption and happiness.

 Industrial heiress, Marigold Bellowes, knows that marriage is just another business transaction. She would, seeing as she’s been pursued by greedy men who only want her father’s fortune for years. But she’s determined to take her fate into her own hands and not to be a prize in a merger. So when she meets rising star of Parliament, Alexander Croydon, she sees a merger that would benefit them both instead of turning her into a useless ornament.

 

But Alex carries secrets that shield a broken heart. He finds Marigold clever and vivacious, dazzling at social events and sensual in bed, but he will not let himself get too close to her. Until a bitter twist of fate exposes James, Alex’s illegitimate son, and potentially the only heir he will ever have.

 

When revealing James as Alex’s heir makes the toddler a target for Alex’s enemies, Marigold and Alex must let go of their heartache to come together to save him. In the process, they discover a camaraderie that could lead to the love both have craved, a love that has been under their noses all along. But has it come too late, and is it enough?

When your reputation is ruined, why not enjoy it?


For Regency wallflower, Miss Verity Barnes, nothing is more difficult than obtaining a voucher to Almack’s Assembly Rooms…except salvaging her reputation after committing a grievous faux pas within ten minutes of stepping through the doors. But being cast out of fashionable society inspires Verity to seek out a different way of life—a way she believes will bring her happiness, comfort and security—becoming the mistress of a powerful man.


Thomas Manfred, Marquess of Landsbury, isn’t looking for a biddable woman to warm his bed. His fortunes lie on the brink of ruin, so he needs a wealthy wife, and Lady Charlotte Grey, darling of the ton, seems to be his only answer. But he cannot forget the adorable, amusing, and naïve young beauty who humiliated herself at Almack’s. And when Verity shows up on his doorstep, demanding he take her as his mistress as amends for the part he played in her ruin, he simply cannot resist the temptation.


But Lady Charlotte isn’t willing to give up her position at Thomas’s side or share his attentions with anyone. Her acid tongue could ruin Verity’s reputation even more thoroughly than it has already been destroyed…unless fate intervenes.


A light-hearted, fun, SUPER steamy, Regency romp—a quick read, not to be taken too seriously.

At twenty-seven years old, Mariah Travers has become what she most feared—a spinster and a perpetual adolescent in the eyes of her family and the law. But her fortunes change when her father announces that he has promised her hand in marriage to an old friend and colleague in the House of Lords. Lord Peter deVere, Earl of Dunsford, is not at all who Mariah imagined marrying, but she is willing to take a chance on the older man in order to gain the freedom that only married women are allowed.

 

After a tragic marriage that stretched on for two decades, Peter is hesitant to marry again. But he needs an heir, or else his dastardly nephew, Lord William, will inherit everything he’s worked his entire life to build. But when he meets Mariah, sparks fly that neither of them expected. Their unlikely match stands a chance of giving each of them all the things they never realized they needed.

 

But trouble abounds when the mine that has provided Peter with his fortune is exhausted and the search for new veins of copper begins. On top of that, Lord William isn’t about to stand by and watch his inheritance disappear. His efforts to drive a wedge between Peter and Mariah cause havoc and heartbreak at Starcross Castle, which will take an act of heroic devotion to overcome as Peter sets out to prove that true love is ageless.

After the death of her father, Miss Elaine Bond had decided to embrace life as an independent woman…much to the chagrin of her neighbors. Her eccentric ways alarm the entire town of Brynthwaite, to the point where concerned friends turn to the only person they believe can settle Elaine into a respectable married life, mysterious bookseller Mr. Basil Wall.

 

Basil has been in love with Elaine since the moment he moved to Brynthwaite years ago, but the secret that drove him out of London and into the remote Lake District has kept him from declaring himself. At least until a twist of fate throws the two potential lovers together in a way that neither of them expected.

 

But what begins as a romance that is as charming as it is sultry turns into a game with far higher stakes when the infamous Missing Earl of Waltham is tracked down and dragged out into the light. And with the fate of Parliament—not to mention a bill increasing the rights of women—in the balance, Basil must choose between love and duty. Which leaves Elaine caught between what is right and what is proper, and leads her to an adventure far more daring than any of her Brynthwaite neighbors could dream of.
