The Heiress Bride

Amber House Books

 The heiress and the bodyguard…

 

When wealthy heiress Gemma Belmont needs a hero, she goes in search of the “Bountiful Baron”, a legendary character famed throughout the west for rescuing damsels in distress. What she doesn’t expect to find is a gruff, gorgeous Irishman who has been thrust into the role against his will. Now all she has to do is convince him that the only way to protect her is to marry her… 

 

Murphy O’Brien is a former Pinkerton agent and saloon owner who has spent the last several years guarding his own battered heart. The last thing he wants is to become a reluctant bodyguard—and husband—to a pampered American princess. But he soon finds his heart under siege by Gemma’s charm, beauty, and wit.

 

Gemma knows their marriage of convenience is only an illusion. But she still finds herself falling beneath the spell of Murphy’s husky brogue and masterful touch. And after a few long, enchanting nights in his arms, she realizes the man she has hired to protect her might be far more dangerous to her yearning heart than any assassin…

Daniel, ninth Duke of Sussex, has big plans—and they don’t include marriage. A member of the covert Free Fellows League, he’s determined to become one of England’s greatest war heroes. But his plans go awry when he’s injured during a mission and forced to take refuge in the home—and bed—of Miranda, Lady St. Germaine, one of society’s perpetual bridesmaids. Soon all of London is abuzz with gossip about Miranda’s mysterious lover…


Realizing his stay has compromised Miranda’s reputation, Daniel goes against his better judgment and proposes marriage. But Miranda will have nothing to do with a marriage of convenience—especially with the one man she’s always secretly adored.

Book 8
A forbidden love and a chilling mystery tease the senses in this sensuous historical romance from the USA Today bestselling author of A Kiss of Lies and A Love to Remember.

Bookish and independent Lady Helen Hawkestone is expected to marry well. But, having grown up with warring parents, the institution holds little appeal. The trick, she realizes, is to marry for love—a task that’s easier said than done. Only while Helen is raising funds for her do-gooder sister’s orphanage does she meet a man who arouses her curiosity. Lowborn and yet so dignified that Helen can’t help but try to elicit a response, Clary Homeward is an enigma—a heart-stopping, body-stirring, forget-her-social-upbringing enigma.

A single offense against a noblewoman such as Lady Helen would ruin a man like Clary. Her sister, Marisa, rescued him from hellish poverty and employs him with her charity work. Try as he might to push her away, Helen tempts him to want things he could never have. But when girls from the orphanage start disappearing, destined for a grim fate Clary knows all too well, Helen insists on helping. And soon Clary wonders whether something more were not just possible but inevitable—even right.

 Can a lady tempt a Free Fellow to surrender his heart? 

As a founding member of the Free Fellows League—a group of four gentlemen who signed a pledge to never wed when they were lads—Griffin, Viscount Abernathy, swears that he will put off marrying as long as possible. But when he is suddenly called off to war, he has no choice but to obey his father’s wishes and find a wife…


Just days later, he marries the lovely Lady Alyssa. For a man committed only to his freedom, she seems a perfect—and perfectly undemanding—bride. Intelligent and self-sufficient, Alyssa craves her independence just as much as Griffin loves his. But as the irresistible attraction between them flourishes with every look and touch, they discover there is something they desire even more than a loveless marriage of convenience—the passion they find in each other’s arms…
