Summary

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, read First Kiss, the tenth book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.  
The time has finally come for Sang Sorenson to be formally introduced to the Academy. Protocol dictates the boys keep the details of Sang’s official introduction to the Academy a secret from her. The only thing they can advise her to do is to work on what will become her mantra: She is determined to stay with her team, no matter what. 
Despite her wishes, however, the boys are second-guessing her place with them, concerned for her safety. With dangers all around and threats closing in, some of the boys are questioning if this is the right time to bring her to meet the Academy at all. 
Sang is challenged with being the brave face among them and instilling the confidence needed to keep her with them. However, in order to appear compliant with the Academy’s rules, she has to be willing to listen and try their suggestions. As the boys have suspected and feared, the council wants to see how she’ll work with a different team. An all-girl team. She has no choice but to go along with the proposal or risk losing a shot at the Academy. 
But when the Academy’s inner world is revealed to her, Sang knows that she’s finally found her place—somewhere she belongs—and she sees a future with them. The deeper she gets, the more she sees how she can make a difference. Learning what she is capable of and the impact she can have, she feels obligated to help. There’s so few girls, and they need her. 
The guys try to stick to their plan, but every team must pay their debts, and the cost of keeping her might be more than any of them can afford.  
It’s up to Sang alone to prove to the Academy where she truly belongs—but can she resist the call of a new team that needs her?

    Their attraction was immediate and undeniable, but not everyone was pleased with their burgeoning romance.   And with one treacherous act… 
     
    Gabriel Ashcroft, the sixth Duke of Ainsworth and the eldest of the three brothers infamously dubbed "The Ashcroft Angels" by their throng of female admirers, had long been considered one of London’s most eligible bachelors, much to his never-ending consternation.   As such, he’d spent years eschewing the pursuits of the ton’s marriage-minded debutantes and eluding their countless attempts to lure him to the altar.  Thus, no one was more surprised than him when he found himself utterly entranced by an innocent young beauty on the verge of her debut, one who affected him as no other woman had before.  But when the Earl of Beckford’s eighteen-year-old daughter mysteriously turned up in his bed one morning, he realized that the young lady who'd garnered his interest wasn’t nearly as innocent as she appeared. 
     
    When Lady Penelope Houghton awoke in the Duke of Ainsworth’s bed, she hadn’t the slightest notion as to how she'd gotten there.  Unfortunately, however, the man lying next to her, the sinfully handsome lord who’d captivated her with his beguiling charm and mesmerizing smile, was now convinced that she was nothing more than a duplicitous schemer who’d set out to trap him into marriage. 
     
    Honor-bound to marry the conniving vixen, Gabriel vowed to keep his new bride at arm’s length; but much to his annoyance he soon discovered that some things are easier said than done.  
     
    Determined to earn her husband’s trust and break through the invisible barrier that he’d erected between them, Penny would risk her heart time and again to prove her innocence as well as her love to the man she adored.  
     
    But would it be enough…

    The Anniversary 
    After the Earl of Reardon, one of London's most notorious rakes, ruined the virtue and reputation of a young lady at a masquerade ball on Valentine's Day, he did the honorable thing and married her before settling her at his country estate and abandoning her there. Now, one year later, he has returned home to his wife and young son, wondering if it is too late to woo her properly and make amends for a year of shameful neglect.
     
    The Wrong Door 
    During a dull evening at a particularly tedious house party Viscount Lyndon, a notorious rake, makes an assignation to spend the night with a willing widow. In the darkness, however, he opens the wrong door and enters the wrong room. He soon finds himself honor-bound to offer for the young lady who was the unfortunate victim of his error. She, however, does not react with predictable meekness. Instead, she sets out to bring him to his knees.
     
    Precious Rogue 
    Miss Peabody and her mother are ecstatic when Mr. Bancroft, London's most elusive bachelor, accepts an invitation to a house party at their country estate. They boast that he is about to offer marriage. However, it is upon Patricia Mangan, the quiet, unremarkable, impoverished niece Mrs. Peabody treats more as a servant than a relative, that Mr. Bancroft finds himself turning his attentions, surprising himself as much as he surprises her and everyone else.

    A bold woman known as the "duchess of Magnus" was wagered—and won—in a card game. But the woman who arrived was her shy, quiet cousin Eleanor. 
     Eleanor de Lacy must have been mad to agree to exchange identities with her stronger-willed cousin. She would never convince Remington Knight of the folly of this union—especially since the man seemed so determined for it to take place. Worse still, she finds Remington dazzlingly attractive—and she's charmed by his attempts to seduce her, even though he believes she is already his. But if he ever learns of Eleanor's deception, this daring rogue will  wreak havoc . . . upon her reputation and her heart. 
    Remington had expected a haughty, unbending aristocrat who would ensure his entrance into good society. But this "duchess" is a most pleasant surprise—modest, warm-hearted, endearingly awkward, and a delight to the eye. In short, she is exactly the sort of bride Remington could fall passionately, completely in love with . . .  
     . . . if he weren't so intent on his revenge.

    “My name is Lucas Greywolf.” 
    A raspy voice, as soft and sandy as the wind that blew across the desert, spoke directly into her ear.  It was a gentle sound, but Aislinn wasn’t deceived.  Like the winds it reminded her of, it could be whipped into a fury. . . 
    Aislinn Andrews knows his name because his escape from prison has prompted a statewide manhunt.  As lean and menacing as a panther, the fugitive invades her house, her bed, and then takes her as his hostage.  Overnight, Aislinn’s safe and predictable life is upended by a man considered criminal and dangerous.  However, his greatest threat to Aislinn isn’t the knife he wields, but his untame appeal. 
    All his life, Lucas Greywolf has harbored a bitter grudge against Anglos, resenting even that half of his heritage.  Years spent in prison for a crime he didn’t commit hasn’t quelled his fighting spirit, but only fanned it.  After escaping, he comes face-to-face with blond, blue-eyed Aislinn Andrews, the epitome of everything he hates.  Yet he must have her.  Now the war Lucas wages is personal, and his fiercest enemy is his longing for the wrong woman. 
    Two people. Two worlds. One shared moment of incandescent passion…when nothing else mattered. 
    But can that unifying instant withstand everything that divides them, when the largest obstacle they face is the most difficult to overcome? Pride.
