Left scandalously ruined, Char flees her home intent upon forgetting Drew and proving her worth. Separated by disloyalty and pain, each struggle to bury the memories of the other until a mandatory summons from the Duke of Danby sets them on a path of collision to Danby Castle. With the tides of irrevocable change rising, Drew must find a way to show Char that even the most selfish of rakes can be redeemed by love before the woman of his heart becomes the wife of another. This is book one in the Regency historical romance novellas featuring the meddling Duke of Danby!

England, 1820. Kate Worthington hat sich geschworen, niemals zu heiraten. Sie möchte frei sein und die Welt bereisen. Ihre Mutter missbilligt das, schließlich ziemt sich das nicht für eine junge Frau. Als Kate jedoch auf das Anwesen Blackmoore eingeladen wird, lässt sie sich auf eine Wette mit ihrer Mutter ein: Gelingt es Kate, drei Heiratsanträge in Blackmoore zu bekommen – und sie alle abzulehnen –, ist sie frei. Wenn nicht, entscheidet ihre Mutter über ihre Zukunft. Ein Kinderspiel, denkt Kate. Doch kaum in Blackmoore angekommen, merkt sie, dass es gar nicht so leicht ist, in wenigen Tagen drei Männerherzen zu erobern – und zu brechen. Und als sie schließlich einen Antrag bekommt, stellt sie mit Entsetzen fest, dass ihr Herz etwas ganz anderes will als ihr Verstand ...

A fiercely independent duchess and a brooding, reclusive earl are tested by the demands of desire in this unforgettable romance from the USA Today bestselling author of A Kiss of Lies and A Night of Forever. For Rose Deverill, one husband was enough. As the wealthy widow of the Duke of Roxborough, she has cultivated an unsavory reputation meant to discourage wife hunters. Thanks to a string of steamy affairs, Rose is perfectly content to be known by polite society as the “Wicked Widow”—until she’s reunited with the man she fell in love with at age fifteen. Their bedroom encounters are scorching, but it breaks Rose’s heart to wonder whether her reckless behavior ruined her for Philip Flagstaff. The second son of the Earl of Cumberland, Philip never wanted the title. But after Philip’s older brother, Robert, follows him into the Battle of Waterloo, his worst fears come to pass. Now Robert lies in a soldier’s grave, and Philip is determined never to pass on the inheritance to children of his own. Then Rose appears, soothing the pain with her delightful curves and passionate kisses. The notorious Duchess seems to want nothing from him—and yet Philip has never ached to give a woman more.

A daring charade could reunite a husband and wife in award-winning author Elizabeth Mansfield’s sparkling Regency romance After nearly losing his life at the Battle of Waterloo, Captain Alexander Tyrrell, Earl of Braeburn, comes home to the shocking news that he is still married. Braving enemy fire is nothing compared to having to see the duplicitous Priscilla Vickers again. Priss has waited six years to be reunited with the man she loves. But her husband believes her guilty of the worst kind of betrayal. And nothing she says or does will convince him that Sir Blake Edmonds isn’t her illicit lover. It will take a daring deception—and a scheming minx who has set her cap for Alec—for these two people to realize how much they have lost and how much they could gain if they were to find the courage to turn a sham union into a second chance for happiness.
