Summary

Five years after the final shot was fired in the War Between the States, Selah Daughtry can barely manage to keep herself, her two younger sisters, and their spinster cousin fed and clothed. With their family's Mississippi plantation swamped by debt and the Big House falling down around them, the only option seems to be giving up their ancestral land.Pinkerton agent and former Union cavalryman Levi Riggins is investigating a series of robberies and sabotage linked to the impoverished Daughtry plantation. Posing as a hotel management agent for the railroad, he tells Selah he'll help her save her home, but only if it is converted into a hotel. With Selah otherwise engaged with renovations, Levi moves onto the property to "supervise" while he actually attends to his real assignment right under her nose.Selah isn't sure she entirely trusts the handsome Yankee, but she'd do almost anything to save her home. What she never expected to encounter was his assault on her heart.

    “Eloisa James is extraordinary.”—Lisa Kleypas 
    “Nothing gets me to the bookstore faster than a new novel by Eloisa James.”—Julia Quinn 
    New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James gives the classic Hans Christian Andersen story of “The Ugly Duckling” a wonderful, witty, and delightfully passionate twist. The Ugly Duchess is another fairytale inspired romance from the unparalleled storyteller whose writing, author Teresa Medieros raves, “is truly scrumptious.” A sexy and fun historical romance, James’s winning tale of a glorious reawakening does not feature ducks and swans—rather it’s a charming story of a young woman unaware of her own beauty, suddenly duty-bound to wed the dashing gentleman who has always been her platonic best friend…until now.

    A scoundrel is transformed by the love of an innocent princess in this historical romance by the New York Times–bestselling author of Flowers from the Storm.    Summoned to rule the tiny nation of Oriens, Princess Olympia St. Leger appoints the most celebrated man in England to escort her: recently retired war hero Capt. Sheridan Drake. Easily frightened, she is vastly relieved to have Captain Drake’s help—until she discovers he’s a scoundrel without a drop of honor in his body. In fact, nothing would make her happier than to forget him. Except she cannot seem to get his deep, stirring gaze out of her head . . .   Sheridan has no patience for hero worshipers; war is a game of survival, not gallant deeds. But Olympia, who comes to him with plump cheeks and eyes full of expectation, has money, something of which he is in great need. And though Olympia is impossibly naive, for reasons he can’t fathom, she touches him in some obscure, half-forgotten place, until the thought of losing her becomes even more impossible.   Set in Georgian England, Seize the Fire is another exciting tale from the author of For My Lady’s Heart, whose work has been praised by Julia Quinn as “unfailingly brilliant and beautiful.”

    Ceylon born and bred, yet English through and though thanks to their stern father, who is the local Vicar, beautiful young Dominica Radford and her five sisters are excited when one Sunday a very handsome English gentleman comes calling on their father in their rundown Vicarage in Colombo.  
    But excitement turns to shock when Lord Hawkston out of the blue asks for Dominica's hand in marriage for his twenty-four year old nephew Gerald Warren, who is running Lord Hawkston's estate in Northern Ceylon. 
    Having discovered that Gerald, recently spurned by a previous fiancée, is drinking heavily, letting the Hawkston tea estate go to wrack and ruin and treating his native lover cruelly, Lord Hawkston is desperate to see him married and settled and so sees the intelligent and sensible Dominica as the perfect bride for him.
    Overwhelmed by his Lordship's generosity in giving her a glorious trousseau of pretty clothes, Dominica initially agrees, but soon she realises not only that she does not love Gerald she is repelled by him and the ugliness and coarseness he brings to the new Garden of Eden where she now finds herself. 
    Nevertheless the lovely Dominica is happier than she has ever been in her entire life. 
    And the reason suddenly comes to her in a blinding light. 
    She is in love with Lord Hawkston!
