The Seduction of Lord Stone (Dashing Widows)

For this reckless widow, love is the most dangerous game of all.

Caroline, Lady Beaumont, arrives in London seeking excitement after ten dreary years of marriage and an even drearier year of mourning. That means conquering society, dancing like there's no tomorrow, and taking a lover to provide passion without promises. Promises, in this dashing widow's dictionary, equal prison. So what is an adventurous lady to do when she loses her heart to a notorious rake who, for the first time in his life, wants forever?

Devilish Silas Nash, Viscount Stone is in love at last with a beautiful, headstrong widow bent on playing the field. Worse, she's enlisted his help to set her up with his disreputable best friend. No red-blooded man takes such a challenge lying down, and Silas schemes to seduce his darling into his arms, warm, willing and besotted. But will his passionate plots come undone against a woman determined to act the mistress, but never the wife?

Rake's Honour (Scandalous Miss Brightwell Book 1)

Beautiful, impoverished Fanny Brightwell has a few scores to settle--and a heart to win--before she can secure the wealthy, aristocratic husband her ambitious mama demands.



Fanny is used to trading on her wits and beauty to ensure her family retains its tenuous hold on respectability. While her reprobate brother gambles away their fortune, and her feather-brained sister threatens to destroy the girls' collective reputation by succumbing to any lure cast her way, Fanny is regarded as the Brightwell family's saviour.

Pressured by her mother into accepting a marriage offer from lecherous Lord Slyther, a desperately unhappy Fanny is given one final opportunity to withdraw from her nuptials, provided she secures an equally rich and titled suitor within two weeks. Otherwise she can look forward to a lifetime attending to Great Aunt Seraphina's chilblains.

This is the story of Fanny's perilous gamble amidst a London season's offerings of debutantes with far greater address - but far less cunning - for the ultimate prize: dashing, delicious, daring Lord Fenton.

The Rogue and I: Must Love Rogues, Book 1

A lady ready for battle:

Miss Harriet Manning once made the mistake of falling completely, totally, and irreversibly in love with a duke's son. It's a mistake she won't repeat twice. Truly. Especially since he abandoned her just when they were about to elope to Gretna Green. Five years later, Harriet hasn't forgotten the way Lord Garret's smoldering gaze and wicked sense of humor touched her soul. Still, there's no way she'll forgive the traitorous libertine, no matter how he stirs her passions. Now, Harriet is determined to show him she doesn't care, and never did, by making merry right under his nose. But a tragic turn of events at her cousin's wedding has her wondering if, just maybe, love deserves one last chance.

My dearest listeners,

This audiobook is a tribute to my favorite dueling lovers, Beatrice and Benedick from Much Ado About Nothing by Shakespeare. I'd always wondered how they'd grown to hate each other and have such epic verbal battles! I hope you enjoy my homage to them.

A lord who lost his heart:

Lord Garret Hart, second son of a duke and now brother to the present Duke of Huntsdown, is never ever ever getting married. Bachelorhood is for him. After all, women are the very devil. Especially one woman. Miss Harriet Manning is Garret's own personal Medusa and she has turned his heart to stone. Indeed she has, but not before she absolutely ripped it to shreds, leaving him a complete wreck. Nothing will ever induce him to matrimony or nauseating protestations of boyish love again. But when he is forced into close proximity at his brother's wedding with the woman who first taught him to dream and see the world as a wondrous place, sparks flash and passions explode. Still, Harriet is not to be trusted. She callously betrayed him once. So how can he ever allow himself another chance at love when love always seems to hurt so much?
