She wanted a hot-blooded lover. He needed a cool-headed duchess. Their marriage of convenience will be anything but convenient…


When Fate throws tinker’s daughter Fancy Sheridan into the arms of Severin Knight, the Duke of Knighton, neither are prepared for the consequences. Fancy, who has always dreamed of a passionate fairy tale love, finds herself wed to a stoic nobleman whose heart belongs to another. Knighton, who needs a high-born lady to shepherd his illegitimate half-siblings through the ton, now has a wife who knows nothing of society and cares even less about its rules.


As Fancy and Knighton struggle to find common ground, desire smolders between them. By day, Fancy works to transform herself into a proper lady, but by night her powerful duke’s caresses arouse her most wanton fantasies. Knighton, in turn, is captivated by his plucky and resourceful duchess, whose sweetness unleashes his deepest carnal desires and slowly forces him to confront the truth of his own heart.  


As the slow burn of the Knightons’ marriage reaches a fever pitch, dangerous secrets rise from their pasts to threaten their happiness. To survive, Fancy and Knighton must lay bare their hearts and vanquish their darkest demons. Will they risk everything to win their happily ever after?

Welcome to the world of the Game of Dukes, a series that draws from Victorian London’s finest drawing rooms and its darkest rookeries. Some dukes are peers of the realm, others lords of London’s underworld, but all are relentless in their pursuit of justice, power, and passion. These commanding men will meet their match—in the strong, feisty women who capture their hearts.


The Duke Identity


He's a policeman bent on justice. She's a proud daughter of the London criminal underworld. Danger brings them together...and desire binds them in this steamy enemies-to-lovers romance.


Shattered by betrayal, former scholar Harry Kent has made a new life for himself as a policeman. Sent on a dangerous covert mission, he must protect a clever and wicked beauty who specializes in disguises and mischief. She stands for everything he scorns—and seduces him with every look of her innocent eyes…


A princess of London's criminal underworld, Tessa Todd wants to defend her family against cutthroat enemies. Her powerful grandfather, however, insists upon keeping her under lock and key. When she is assigned a stoic and damnably handsome new bodyguard, she resists his dominant ways—and a passionate war of wills begins…


Thrown together by crisis, Harry and Tessa will test the bounds of desire, loyalty, and trust. On the run from their foes and from their own hearts, they must find salvation in each other—before time runs out.

One wicked night of passion results in life-altering consequences for innocent bar maid Maggie Goode. Years later, she’s a respectable widow, but her troubles are far from over.

The son of an English aristocrat and a Chinese merchant’s daughter, Rhys Cavendish, the Duke of Ranelagh and Somerville (“Ransom”), hides his secret pain behind a rakish façade. Yet he cannot hide from his debts, and now he’s on the run from cutthroat moneylenders—and the necessity of marrying for convenience.

She married him for love. He married her for revenge. Can a marriage that started with lies turn into a ravishing love story for all time?


"An incredibly steamy, emotional and all consuming read that I could read again and again." -Goodreads


For the eight years of their marriage, sweet, innocent Gabriella Garrity has adored her powerful and darkly handsome husband Adam, whose moneylending empire has earned him the moniker of Duke of the City. Her domestic bliss is shattered when Adam suffers a traumatic accident that results in amnesia. Gabby dedicates herself to nursing him back to health…until devastating revelations destroy her illusions about their marriage.


From the moment he met beautiful redheaded Gabriella, Adam knew that she would make him the perfect wife. Guileless, biddable, and sweetly unaware of her own charms, she also holds the key to his secret plot for vengeance. A self-made man who rose from the darkest streets of London, he values control above all and will stop at nothing to gain his justice—until an accident robs him of his memory. As he fights to remember his past, he comes to a stunning realization: whoever he is, he is passionately in love with his own wife.


One by one, dark secrets emerge from Adam’s past as well as Gabby’s. The lovers struggle to steer a relationship gone off course…only to discover steamy marital adventures they never expected to find. All the while, a deadly villain lies in wait. Will husband and wife find the courage to trust one another and their love…before time runs out?

"You get all the feels in all the right places when reading a Grace Callaway book....The love affair between Wick and Bea is beautiful (and scorching)." -Angela, Goodreads


A Lady Looking for Sin

Once London’s reigning debutante, Lady Beatrice Wodehouse is poised for a life of happiness when an accident shatters her dreams. Renamed Lady Beastly by vicious gossips, she flees loss and betrayal, escaping to the countryside. There, she finds solace in anonymity and discovers new purpose, turning her estate into a haven for society’s outcasts. Yet a shard of her old dream remains: she yearns for a taste of forbidden passion…  


A Gentleman in Search of Redemption

Once London’s most feckless rake, Wickham Murray has fought to redeem his honor and prove that he is more than a shallow Adonis. Now a railway industrialist, he’s as renowned for his prowess in the boardroom as in the bedchamber. His latest venture will be the greatest success of his career: the only obstacle is a stubborn country spinster who refuses to sell him her land. On his way to negotiate with her, he stops at a masquerade, where an encounter with a masked lady changes everything he thought he knew about desire… 


Their Timeless Tale

Negotiations go from heated to scorching as Bea and Wick discover that they are not only opponents in business but lovers bonded by a night of ecstasy that neither can forget. As they wrestle with all-consuming passion and blossoming love, they must also contend with deadly attacks from a mysterious foe. In order to survive, they will have to unravel dark secrets…and trust the truth of their own hearts.

CHRONICLES OF ABIGAIL JONES (a gothic Victorian paranormal romance series)

Book 1: Abigail Jones

In Elisa Braden’s enchanting new Midnight in Scotland series, the unlikeliest matches generate the greatest heat. All it takes is a spark of Highland magic. 


“Make me a lady, and I’ll make ye a Highlander.” –Mad Annie Tulloch, Scottish lass

“Challenge accepted.” –John Huxley, English gentleman


No lady can tempt him more than the next shore

Everyone wants handsome adventurer John Huxley to settle down—family, friends, London society. Everyone except John. He’s evaded too many scheming title huntresses to trust in happily-ever-after. Now, a vow made to a dying friend has him locked in a land dispute with a stubborn Scot who offers one way out: Win the Highland Games. John likes a challenge, but this one’s impossible. Still, with training from the Scot’s stepdaughter, victory might be within reach. He only has to teach the fiery, foul-mouthed, breeches-wearing lass how to land a lord. It seems “impossible” is just getting started.


She’s no lady—she’s Mad Annie Tulloch

Everyone calls her Mad Annie. True, her best friend is a ghost. And yes, her greatest talents involve cooking for giants and taunting ridiculously handsome Englishmen. But she’s not mad—she’s desperate. To save her friend, Annie must marry a lord. The trouble is no lord will look twice at a hoyden like her. This calls for “Lady Lessons,” and she knows just the uptight Englishman to provide them.


When did a simple bargain become a battle of desire? 

Amidst cursed castles, caber tossing, and questionable chaperones, John and Annie’s wildfire attraction threatens to send their plans up in flames. And when Annie’s family is targeted by a dangerous enemy, John is tempted to stay, to fight, and to win the greatest prize of all: A fiery lass’s tender, loyal heart.

Benedict’s Challenge (Regency Club Venus 3) is the 3rd book in Amazon #1 & USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, hot new historical romance series, Regency Club Venus.


Lord Benedict Winter knows what those in Society think of him. Of their disapproval of his having studied and become a physician. They are even more shocked that he uses his skill, not just to treat the poor but also to care for the ladies of Club Venus, a house of ill-repute owned by one of his closest friends. Not disapproving enough to ban him from entering their homes of course, because he is, after all, one of the wealthiest gentleman in England.


Having shunned all attempts to entice him into the Marriage Mart, many in Society also believe Benedict to be a cold and arrogant man, with no emotion to give.


His close friends know better.


As they also know of the secret he has kept for so long…


In the circumstances, the very last thing Benedict needs or wants is to meet and instantly be attracted to Chloe, a young woman he discovers residing in another man’s home.


Chloe has lost everyone dear to her. Her parents. The brother she adored. All gone. And in their place she now lives in the home of a man who despises her and takes every opportunity to make those feelings known to her.


Lord Benedict Winter sweeps in like a breath of fresh air into the stultifying life Chloe is now forced to lead. But he blows hot and cold, one moment making his desire for her known and the next putting her at arms’ length and insisting he is not the man for her to build her dreams upon.


But dreams, Chloe quickly discovers, have a will and determination of their own.
