 Does a delightfully innocent “soiled dove” dare to believe in once upon a time with a notorious gunslinger?

Russia Valentine is looking for a noble Prince Charming to make all of her happily-ever-after dreams come true. But when a hardened Texas gunslinger comes swaggering into the saloon where she works, she can’t resist falling beneath the seductive spell of his midnight-black hair and glittering obsidian eyes.  


Santiago Zamora stopped believing in fairy tales—and happily ever afters—a long time ago. The last thing the reluctant bounty hunter needs in his life is a tart-tongued beauty who sings like a dying nanny goat, has a cat who insists on sleeping in his hat, attracts catastrophe wherever she goes, and makes his pulse pound with a dangerous desire he had hoped never to feel again.


When Russia tricks Santiago into helping her track the villain with the power to destroy all of her dreams, Santiago must fight the temptation to surrender to a spell of a different kind—one woven of passion and tenderness…and the irresistible hope that it might not be too late for him to find a happily ever after of his own—in Russia Valentine’s arms.

Can an innocent miss with a preposterous plan win the jaded heart of a duke?

 Goldie Mae needs a duke. If she doesn’t produce one, she’ll lose the charming English estate she calls home. When a tall, dark stranger with a sardonic drawl and glittering green eyes drags the golden-haired beauty out of a pond to “save” her from “drowning”, she believes she’s found the man who can make all her dreams come true. She offers to give the bemused fellow “duke lessons”, not realizing she is instructing the very man born to the role.

 

Saber Tremayne, the Duke of Ravenhurst, is known as the “Diamond Duke” because the untimely death of his fiancé has chilled his heart to ice. Weary of being pursued by fortune-hunting beauties, Saber can’t resist going along with Goldie’s hare-brained masquerade. As Goldie begins to melt his icy heart one kiss at a time, Saber finds himself falling beneath the tender spell of a woman who will always prefer a crown of dandelions to a diamond tiara. But is it too late for the disenchanted duke to learn the most important lesson of all—how to love again?

Can a gentleman turn a backwoods Cinderella into his very own Princess Charming?

 The last thing handsome, aristocratic Saxon Blackwell needs is a bride. But a cruel ultimatum from his wicked witch of a grandmother leaves him with no choice but to seek one or lose his vast English estate forever. Saxon’s flight from high society leads him right into the arms of Chickadee McBride—a barefoot, flame-haired mountain girl with a saucy tongue, a tender heart and her very own wolf.

 

Both shocked and secretly intrigued by the untamed beauty’s scandalous behavior, the cynical Saxon quickly decides Chickadee would make the perfect bride to bring home to grandmother. Chickadee’s Scotch-Irish temperament and irresistible shenanigans set society ablaze with gossip, but it is Saxon who finds his body burning with a passion he can no longer deny. Too late, he realizes his wild bride is in danger of making him a prisoner of desire…and capturing his heart…

Victorian romance, humorous romance

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens returns to the Cynsters’ next generation to bring you a thrilling tale of love, intrigue, and fabulous horses.

A notorious rakehell with a stable of fabulous Thoroughbreds and a lady on a quest to locate such horses must negotiate personal minefields to forge a greatly desired alliance—one someone is prepared to murder to prevent.

Prudence Cynster has turned her back on husband hunting in favor of horse hunting. As the head of the breeding program underpinning the success of the Cynster racing stables, she’s on a quest to acquire the necessary horses to refresh the stable’s breeding stock.

On his estranged father’s death, Deaglan Fitzgerald, now Earl of Glengarah, left London and the hedonistic life of a wealthy, wellborn rake and returned to Glengarah Castle determined to rectify the harm caused by his father’s neglect. Driven by guilt that he hadn’t been there to protect his people during the Great Famine, Deaglan holds against the lure of his father’s extensive collection of horses and, leaving the stable to the care of his brother, Felix, devotes himself to returning the estate to prosperity.

Deaglan had fallen out with his father and been exiled from Glengarah over his drive to have the horses pay their way. Knowing Deaglan’s wishes and that restoration of the estate is almost complete, Felix writes to the premier Thoroughbred breeding program in the British Isles to test their interest in the Glengarah horses.

On receiving a letter describing exactly the type of horses she’s seeking, Pru overrides her family’s reluctance and sets out for Ireland’s west coast to visit the now-reclusive wicked Earl of Glengarah. Yet her only interest is in his horses, which she cannot wait to see.

When Felix tells Deaglan that a P. H. Cynster is about to arrive to assess the horses with a view to a breeding arrangement, Deaglan can only be grateful. But then P. H. Cynster turns out to be a lady, one utterly unlike any other he’s ever met.

Yet they are who they are, and both understand their world. They battle their instincts and attempt to keep their interactions businesslike, but the sparks are incandescent and inevitably ignite a sexual blaze that consumes them both—and opens their eyes.

But before they can find their way to their now-desired goal, first one accident, then another distracts them. Someone, it seems, doesn’t want them to strike a deal. Who? Why?

They need to find out before whoever it is resorts to the ultimate sanction.

 

A historical romance with neo-Gothic overtones, set in the west of Ireland. A Cynster Next Generation novel—a full-length historical romance of 125,000 words.
