When dire financial straits force her brother Harry to sell the increasingly dilapidated family seat, Queen’s Hoo, Anthea Brooke, the beautiful daughter of the late Lord Colnbrooke, puts on a brave face.
And she is delighted that Harry, under an assumed name, will take up the position of estate manager to the new owner and oversee the restoration of the ancient house while Harry, Anthea and their aged Nanny move to the much more compact Dower House.
Anthea takes an instant dislike to the handsome but haughty, cynically womanising new owner, the Marquis of Eaglescliffe., known to everyone as ‘Eagle’
So when she is called upon to play the piano incognito for his rather disreputable house party she is daunted and apprehensive as her brother has warned her severely against even meeting the Marquis.
But no sooner than she flees the Marquis’s unwanted attentions by escaping through a series of secret passages unknown to him, she overhears a sinister plot to kill him. Not just once, but twice and Anthea acts at once to save the Marquis’s life on both occasions.
And slowly but surely their shared passion for music, in particular the piano, is transformed into a love that they will forever share.
Jax knew the minute he saw a picture of Victoria James that she was going to turn his world upside down.

The physical pleasure they find with each other, has to take a back seat to saving her life. Will Tori forgive the lies he has to tell in order to get her to safety?

Lady Philippa Marbury is . . . odd
The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiancé and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest—fourteen days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.
She needs . . . a Scoundrel
She needs Cross, the clever, controlled partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, with a carefully crafted reputation for wickedness. But reputations often hide the darkest secrets, and when the unconventional Pippa boldly propositions him, seeking science without emotion, she threatens all he works to protect. He is tempted to give Pippa precisely what she wants . . . but the scoundrel is more than he seems, and it will take every ounce of his willpower to resist giving the lady more than she ever imagined.
He's rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.
And she's stranded with him for an entire week.

He knows the sexy stranger doesn't belong in his small town, but he's determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her.
She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.
A sizzling, enemies-to-lovers romp with bite.
When a dashing young gentleman runs into Wentmore Hall bleeding from his shoulder and crying, “Save me! Save me! If you cannot hide me, they will kill me!” the quick-witted beautiful young Novella Wentworth hides him in the secret passage that was used centuries ago by Catholic Priests escaping from the wrath of Queen Elizabeth and later the Royalists and the Cromwellians.
The young man, Vale Chester, has been shot by Novella’s neighbour, Lord Grimstone, who demands to search the house for his quarry.
Novella’s father, a General fighting in the Duke of Wellington’s Army in Spain, never liked Lord Grimstone, so she is naturally suspicious of him and his motives.
And sure enough she finds that Vale Chester is a Government agent who suspects Lord Grimstone to be the leader of a smuggling gang landing French luxury goods illegally in England and therefore a traitor, as the English are at war with Napoleon Bonaparte.
Taking Vale’s top secret coded message to the Secretary of State for War, Novella finds herself a part of the plan to capture Lord Grimstone and his gang of smugglers and a terrifying adventure begins.
Now her own life, as well as Vale’s, is at stake and, as love blossoms in her heart, she finds that it is for his safety that she cares most.
The Duke of Jervaulx was brilliant and dangerous. Considered dissolute, reckless, and extravagant, he was transparently referred to as the ′D of J′ in scandal sheets, where he and his various exploits featured with frequency. But sometimes the most womanising rake can be irresistible, and even his most casual attentions fascinated the sheltered Maddy Timms, quiet daughter of a simple mathematician.
At age twenty-nine, Piper Daniels is having the longest dry spell of her life. When she agrees to be set up on a blind date, she never expects it to end with the hottest sex of her life.
But when she discovers that her very well-endowed secret lover is also her new boss, heartless womanizer and cutthroat CEO Jackson Dane, she chalks it up to a one-time mistake and puts up her best professional front. But Jackson isn’t used to rejection, and if Piper thinks it’s going to be easy to move on from their tryst, she’s underestimated his determination.
