Summary

Beneath every scornful smile . . .  
They were once cherished childhood companions, until a scandalous secret tore them apart. Now Valerian Rainewood and Abigail Smart are the fiercest of enemies. To Abigail, Rainewood is a notorious rake, hell-bent on mischief and not fit for polite society. So what if it seems as if he can seduce her with nothing but his eyes? She will not succumb. But when the earl is viciously attacked, Abigail's distress tells her that something still binds her to the wild Rainewood. 
Lies an unquenchable desire . . .  
Though the ton believes there is nothing between them, Rainewood knows the truth. Abigail tempts him the way no other woman has. Wanton lust overwhelms him whenever she is near. But keeping her too close may put her precious life in danger. He must destroy his enemies—so that with every touch he may prove to Abigail that though their past was filled with trouble, their future will be nothing but pleasure.

    An aristocratic playboy finds himself the houseguest of a brash, bold, confounding, yet inexplicably beguiling widow in this incredibly witty romance from Raine Cantrell.
    For Catherine, widowhood does not mean mourning. It means freedom. Finally experiencing the world outside of her former husband’s strict and watchful eye, Catherine finds new joy in the simplicity of life in the home she shares with her closest friends, Mary and Sarah.
    With Mary close to having a child of her own and Sarah acting as Mary’s midwife, Catherine is facing an empty house for the first time ever. To make the best of it, she’s agreed to host a good friend’s brother for a much-needed break from his obsessive working.
    What should be a quiet vacation for Gregory Michael Mayfield III in the tranquility of the countryside, however, quickly turns to disaster. Gregory, used to finery, order, and getting exactly what he wants, arrives earlier than expected, to the surprise of his seemingly scatterbrained but stunning host.
    Peace and privacy are all Gregory is after, but when he finds himself drawn to Catherine’s own stubbornness and the intelligent nature he at first took for granted, both may fall to the wayside. Will the calamity send Gregory packing or draw him ever closer to the untamable Catherine?

    "Powerful…harrowing…[Raine Cantrell] has pulled out all the stops!" —Katherine Deauxville, author of Blood Red Roses
    Bound by promise, torn by betrayal.
    Matched to a child from an enemy clan, Dhu Micheil, the Black Laird of Clan Gunn, has no intention of settling down with his promised bride—nor any woman, for that matter. Consumed with lust for revenge against Clan MacKay for the unforgivable pain wrought upon his younger sister, Micheil’s plans for his promised bride may be, by far, the cruelest fate to fall upon her.
    Seana nic Mackay, torn from her family without knowing why, has lived the life of a hostage in the territory of Clan Gunn since she was a child. Locked away in an abbey, waiting for a man who would not have her, Seana longs for but a taste of freedom, cursing the name of the man that will forever keep it just out of her reach: Micheil.
    But when Seana, free for a single day to attend a fair, crosses paths unknowingly with the man sworn to be her ruin, neither can resist the other’s pull. Micheil steals her first kiss. Seana steals his heart. 
    Can Micheil go through with the plans he swore to his father and clan he’d put into motion? Or will Seana be a casualty of a war she had no say in?

    “I Claim, I Hold.”
    No one keeps the Clan Gunn motto closer to his heart than its war chief, Jamie Gunn. Willing to keep the tenuous peace between clans by any means necessary, he would lay down his life for his family. So when word arrives that his aunt Ailis has been kidnapped for hiding a woman in her abbey, he takes to his steed at once. 
    Lady Gilliane de Verrill came to the abbey seeking refuge from Guy de Orbrec, the cruel Norman despot who stole her hand in marriage on her father’s deathbed. When her only source of protection turns away Orbrec’s men and is kidnapped, Lady Gilliane knows there is only one thing she can do. Bearing responsibility for Ailis’ life on her shoulders, she rides off to seek help, with Orbrec’s men hot on her heels. 
    When the two meet by chance in the woods, they encounter in each others eyes more danger than even Guy de Orbrec could provide. 
    Will Jamie, struck by the beauty and kindness of this mysterious woman responsible for his aunt’s disappearance, risk his all for someone he barely knows? Can Lady Gilliane, taken by this hero seemingly lifted directly from her father’s fairy tales, look past his wild nature to the gentle man within? With a life on the line and Gilliane’s freedom at stake, their blossoming love could be their very destruction.

    A bold, seductive laird meets his passionate match in a scintillating Highland romance from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands 
    Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue— definitely not. Raised alongside seven boisterous brothers, Saidh has little interest in saddling herself with a husband . . . until she glimpses the new Laird MacDonnell bathing naked in the loch. Though she's far from a proper lady, the brawny Highlander makes Saidh feel every inch a woman. 
    She has an angel's looks, a warrior's temper, and seeks out his kisses with wanton eagerness. Little wonder that Greer is intrigued by his comely guest. When reckless desire overtakes them, he's more than willing to make an honest woman of her. But Saidh is the target of a hidden enemy, and Greer faces the battle of his life to safeguard the woman he wants above all others.
