In the eyes of the ton, Ellen Harding lives a charmed life – she is the beautiful, exquisitely adorned mistress of Lord Gainsborough.
But on the inside, behind her glamorous façade, she is empty – a vessel – deaf to the voice of morality and blind to shame. Unable to escape the gilded cage she has been trapped within.
Kind, gentle Edward Marlow could prove to be her salvation... With one look he gives her hope. With one touch he sets her senses alight.
Lose yourself in the passionate intensity of this stunning debut from exciting new talent Jane Lark.
Jane is qualified to the equivalent of a Masters Degree in People Management and is fascinated by the things which craft people’s personalities, so she has great fun exploring these through characters. She lives in the United Kingdom near the Regency City of Bath and has just bought her 400 year old dream home. History has always tempted her imagination and she loves researching and also exploring ruins and houses to get ideas. She equally loves a love story.
Jane has always aspired to writing a historical novel so when she was thirty she put it on her ‘to do before I am forty’ list. She completed her first novel ten years ago, never sent it anywhere then started the next. She’s not stopped writing since, and escaping into a mental world of fiction is a great painkiller to help fight off her Ankylosing Spondylitis.
Book three in Jane Lark's Kindle best-selling Regency romance series!
Isolated by life and choice, John Harding, the Duke of Pembroke, sees an angel in a pale mauve dress across a ballroom and is drawn closer.
The wheat-blonde hair escaping her dull dove-grey bonnet caresses her neck and lures his eyes to the spot he'd most like to kiss.
Then as if she senses his gaze the stranger turns and looks at him...
“A rush of pain and longing spilled from Katherine's heart into her limbs. It was so long since she'd seen John but her reaction was the same as it had been more than half-a-dozen years before. She loved him, secretly, without hope, but a chasm of years and status stood between them.”
Francine Larrabee is headed to a presentation that she’s sure will change her life when she’s in a car accident. When she awakens she’s a woman with no name and no home in Northern England, near the Scottish border, the year of Our Lord… 1880.
Catapulted into a world that threatens her life, she’s controlled by a man who may destroy her heart. Isolated without so much as a glimmer of the world she’s familiar with she must survive amidst the sudden danger, violence, and passion.
Francine learns her only chance of safety lies in Gideon Trumbull, a lionhearted—but evasive—duke. What begins as a compulsion to learn anything about him becomes an urgent need to know everything about him, and Francine finds herself in an inescapable new reality, a world in which she doesn’t belong but feel more like home than anything ever has.
Gideon's brother Perry has likewise been caught up in an incident, finding a runaway housemaid in his carriage as he's bound for London. His brother will kill him if something happens to one of his staff—the something being the rakish brother Perry, of course.
But his stowaway, Lilly, has another idea. She plans on seducing this rake who refuses to touch her. It seems like just the right challenge to sooth her damaged soul.
Two complete love stories in one beautiful book.
