Owen Hadley needs a wife. Preferably a wealthy one. Alas, there aren’t a great number of heiresses willing to marry a rogue of no particular fortune—luckily, if there is ever a gentleman capable of melting a lady’s chilly heart, it’s Owen.

Milly has had enough of the marriage mart. If matrimony means giving up her freedom for a foppish husband, then society can take their idea of marital bliss and toss it. But when the ton’s most notorious rogue mistakenly makes his way into her bedchambers, Milly finds herself unexpectedly and unwillingly at the altar . . .

Yet the more time she spends with her new husband, the more Milly starts to wonder if the marriage she never wanted may be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Now it’s up to Owen to convince Milly that what started as a mistake is anything but—and that every night with him will be more wonderfully scandalous than the last.

A GENTLEMAN NEVER SURRENDERS

by

Lauren Smith


Milly climbed onto the bed and pulled the bedclothes up around her chest and sighed. The bed was so large, and rather lonely. Usually she didn’t let such a melancholy thought bother her, but tonight for some reason, it did. There was a dull ache in her chest and she rubbed the spot with her hand. Somewhere tonight, Mr. Hadley was likely climbing into bed, dreaming of all the young ladies’ hearts he would steal and break. A treacherous little flutter in her chest made Milly wince. She ought not to think of Hadley, certainly not while she was in bed…yet thinking of him, as frustrating and maddeningly irritating as he was, flushed her with a welcome heat in the chilly room.

The oil lamp beside her bed was the only light left in the room and it burned steadily. Often she read late into the night and forgot to turn it off, but tonight she was too tired to read. She reached over and gently twisted the brass knob to kill the little flame. Darkness absorbed the dying light and Milly flipped onto her back. The cold of the sheets almost stung her bare toes and legs when her nightdress rode up to her knees. A cold bed, an empty bed. It shouldn’t have upset her, but after Mr. Hadley’s talk of heat and summer, she was off balance and bothered.

The mere thought of him and the way his eyes had darkened and seemed to shimmer with inner flames brought on another rush of warmth. His eyes, like honeyed fire, and his lips, the way he’d smiled sardonically, almost mockingly, in a way she rather liked, irritated her, yet fascinated her. There was no reason to like a man’s mouth or to imagine what it might be like to have that mouth pressed to hers in a kiss that caused the heat he was so fond of discussing. She knew his kiss would be hot, because when she thought of it, her body blossomed with a swelling of heat in her belly. His mouth is wicked…sinful…and I hate that I wish to know how he tastes. It was a forbidden thought, but one she couldn’t deny. She rolled over onto her stomach, fluffed her pillow, and squeezed her eyes shut, attempting to will herself to sleep. It was going to be a long night.

ALL BOOKS ARE LOOSELY CONNECTED
YET EASILY READ AS STANDALONES!
The Seduction of Emily
by Rachel Brimble
Genre: Victorian Romance
Seduction is a wicked game, and no one plays it better than the devilish Will
Samson in Rachel Brimble’s captivating new novel. . .


Since girlhood, Emily Darson has accepted that she will marry Nicholas, the
son of her father’s trusted business partner. The marriage contract
safeguards her family legacy, Emily’s fortune, and everything she
values–except her independence. Only when a sinfully handsome
scoundrel enters her life does Emily realize quite how much a
loveless match will cost her.
Will Samson has advanced from expert pickpocket to confidence trickster of
the highest caliber. Now he has come to Bath to exact vengeance on
the man who destroyed his mother–the man Emily will soon marry. But
from his first glimpse of the enemy’s bewitching, spirited fiancée,
Will’s plan changes.
Amid the ballrooms and salons of elegant society, heated glances explode
into scandalous kisses. Revenge is sweet, but surrender will be
irresistible. . .
Laura Robinson has always been dazzled by the glamour of the stage. But
perhaps acting and selling one’s favors are not so different—for
Laura must feign pleasure with the men she beds to survive. Now, with
her only friend at death’s door and a ruthless pimp at her heels,
escaping her occupation seems impossible. Hoping to attract a
gentleman, she attends the theater. Yet the man Laura captivates is
no customer, but a rising star and playwright. . .

From country girl to actress of the stage, one woman dares to live her
dreams—but is she brave enough to open her heart. . .?


Monica Danes always wanted more than the village of Biddlestone had to
offer. After a failed courtship to a man of her parents’ choosing,
she fled for the city of Bath and never looked back. Today, Monica is
the undisputed queen of the theater—a wealthy, independent woman.
But when she is called home in the wake of tragedy, Monica
returns—intending to leave again as soon as possible.
Thomas Ashby has been a groom at the Danes estate since he was a boy—and
has been enamored with Monica for almost as long. He knows he isn’t a
suitable match for his master’s daughter, despite the special bond he
and Monica have always shared—and their undeniable attraction. But
now that she’s returned, Thomas has one last chance to prove himself
worthy—and to show Monica a life, and a love, she won’t want to
give up. . .
Jane Charlotte Danes has loved the squire of her idyllic country town for
as long as she can remember. He is good, kind, and alluring beyond
words… and he chose to marry another. Tired of dwelling on her
futile longings, Jane plans a move to Bath, where she dreams of a new
beginning. But the man who has so imprisoned her heart is only a few
steps behind…


He Can’t Let Her Go…
Until now, Matthew Cleaves has endeavored to meet the responsibilities of
his position with dignity and good spirits–including his dutiful
marriage. But when his wife leaves him for another man, Matthew is at
last free to pursue his one true love. Only one vital question
remains: will the captivating, stubborn, beautiful Jane allow him the
challenge, and the pleasure, of winning her back?..
