 A heartless villain…Lady Daphne Fairchild braves the journey from London to the wilds of Scotland alone with one purpose in mind: confront the man who purposely and methodically set out to ruin the men of her family. But what he demands in exchange for answers will thrust Daphne into a world of mystery, hatred, and lust.

An indecent proposal…
Thirty days and nights in the bed of the Earl of Hartmoor … this is the price she must pay to learn the truth of the dark lord’s vendetta against her family. Yet, when she accepts the offer, Daphne never expects to find that nothing is what she thought it was, and the truth proves far harder to stomach than she ever imagined. 

A cruel desire that holds her captive…
Even as he uses her to exact his final revenge against her family, Daphne cannot deny the way her body reacts to his touch, the way her soul seems to become more intertwined with his by the day. Despite the ruin he has made of her life, she cannot escape that the threads of deceit, desire, and pain have tied them together irrevocably. With her fate now in his hands, she is uncertain whether he will turn out to be the hero who steals her heart, or the villain who destroys her soul.

Book 2 of 2 in the Villain Duology, a Dark Regency Erotic Romance duet set in the wilds of Scotland. 

A quest for vengeance…

Lord Adam Callahan, Earl of Hartmoor has spent the past five years destroying the Fairchild family as recompense for the ruination of his sister. Yet, it never seemed like enough … until the family’s only daughter appeared on his doorstep searching for answers. In her, he found the perfect tool for his final revenge. His plan had been simple—coerce Lady Daphne Fairchild into an illicit affair and ruin her. 

An unexpected obsession… 
After thirty days and nights in his bed, Adam sends Daphne back to London a fallen woman, the final blow that will see the Fairchild family scorned by society. However, he is hard-pressed to forget the beauty of her submission, or the brief moments of peace and balance she brought his tortured existence. Despite the bad blood between their families, he is determined to possess her, to stake his claim on her beyond the thirty nights she gave him. She will fight him at every turn … which will only make the chase, and her inevitable surrender, all the better.

A choice between love and retribution…

When the consequences of Adam’s deeds begin to fall back on not only him, but Daphne, as well, he is forced to bring her under his protection. He will end this feud between his family and hers once and for all, and is determined to put her behind him when all is said and done. Yet, it becomes increasingly clear that setting her aside will not be as simple as he thought. Her heart could be his for the taking, but only if he will abandon his vendetta against her family once and for all. Will Adam choose a lifetime of peace and love with Daphne … or will the need for revenge consume him, and eventually, destroy him?  

 The Honourable Mr. Robert Stanley is heartbroken …

After losing the love of his life to another man, he stumbles into a public house looking to drown his sorrows. The last thing he expects is to be approached with a scandalous proposition. When Lady Cassandra Lane offers him one night in an upstairs room with her, he leaps at the chance despite her stipulation that he submit to her every whim. He wants nothing more than to lose himself and forget his pain; allowing someone else control seems a small price to pay for it. Little does he know that one night will have the power to change everything.

Lady Cassandra Lane is in a constant state of rage…

After her brutal assault at the hands of a lord, she’s had her name and reputation dragged through the mud. Her family and friends have turned their back on her, and she’s become a social outcast. In the midst of it all, the anger and fear caused by the theft of her innocence rules her existence, and Cassandra has had enough. Deciding to take control of her circumstances, she sets out to find a man with whom she can overcome her anxiety over physical intimacy. Robert Stanley seems like an ideal choice—someone she can use for her own ends and discard once she is done. However, she never anticipates that their one encounter will lead to a craving for more.

Even when she fights him, all he wants is to save her from herself …

Robert cannot understand why he responds so readily to Cassandra’s dominant nature, or the cruelty fueled by her anger. Nevertheless, he is drawn to her like a moth to a flame—despite the possibility that she will only hurt him in the end. As he falls rapidly under her spell, he begins to uncover Cassandra’s deep, dark secrets, as well as her hidden pain. Even though she pushes him away at every turn, he finds himself unable to walk away—especially when it becomes clear that one of her secrets might just be the death of her.

She doesn’t need a hero … but if she’d let him, he might just be her saving grace.

You are cordially invited to an exclusive event at the home of Lady Millicent Dane—notorious widow and controversial figure among the ton. Not just anyone can garner an invitation to this Christmas fête, and those who attend are considered part of an inner circle … a secret society of people who share an interest in taboo lusts of the flesh. While donning masks that denote their status as Masters, submissives, and everything in between, the lords and ladies present will indulge in their most wicked desires—the likes of which would set London ablaze with scandal if word of their activities were to spread. But, the chances of exposure are slim to none. After all, what occurs at Lady Dane’s remains at Lady Dane’s.

Part One: A Christmas Submission

Lord Simon Fitzwilliam IV, Marquis of Ashton, has found both the perfect wife and the consummate submissive in the same person—his wife, Lady Sophie, whom he loves to distraction. Yet, the recent birth of their twins has changed her, inhibiting her enjoyment of their bed play. Determined to remind her how beautiful domination and submission can be between them, Simon escorts her to Lady Dane’s Christmas party with a plan … one that require a level of submission she’s never before given.

Part Two: Dominating the Duchess

Lord Camden Rycroft, Duke of Avonleah was one of the most notorious rakes of his day … until he married the woman who stole his heart. With Lady Margaret Rycroft, he has found a happiness he never thought possible. After so many years together, everything is as it should be—except for the fact that their intimate life has grown surprisingly predictable. As he falls in with a new set of friends and finds himself invited to his first soiree at the home of Lady Dane, Camden plans a downright scandalous evening for his wife, hoping to inject some much-needed fun back into their bed play.

Part Three: Christmas for his Mistress

Michael Darling has found happiness and love with Lady Amelia Darling, his recently wedded wife. While life as the lady of a country manor suits her, she still has much to learn about being part of a family—her own upbringing having been less than desirable. After an evening spent at Lady Dane’s exclusive Christmas fete, Michael has plans of his own to mark Amelia’s first real Christmas.
