Summary

A new village drama full of life, love... and secrets. Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell and Emma Burstall. 
 
Little Woodford has a sleepy high street, a weekly market, a weathered old stone church and lovingly tended allotments. A peaceful, unexciting place, the very heart of middle England. 
 
In Little Woodford no one has fingers in more pies than Olivia Laithwaite, parish councillor, chair of the local WI, wife, mother and all round queen bee. So of course it's Olivia who is first to spot that The Beeches has been sold at last. 
 
Soon rumours begin to swirl around the young widow who has bought this lovely house. Why exactly did she leave London with her beautiful stepdaughter and young sons? Are they running from someone? Hiding something? Though if they are, they won't be the only ones. Sometimes the arrival of newcomers in a community is all it takes to light a fuse...

    "There is a dungeon hidden
    beneath the castle where women are treated as playthings…humiliated in ways an innocent little thing like you
    cannot possibly begin to imagine…
    Hmm? What do we use? Ropes, whips, handcuffs, blindfolds, clamps, anything that
    can fit- Oh, are you blushing already? Come now, wouldn't you like to have a
    look?"

    "There is a dungeon hidden
    beneath the castle where women are treated as playthings…humiliated in ways an innocent little thing like you
    cannot possibly begin to imagine," he said with a wicked grin that did not
    reach his eyes.
    
     
    "I am not a child, Victor,"
    I said through clenched teeth, more than a little annoyed that this stranger
    was judging me without knowing anything about me.
    
     
    "Of course not, but there are
    things that happen in the dungeon that will make you question a lot of
    things," he said.
    
     
    "What kind of things?" I
    asked, curious despite my apprehension to show him that he was right in
    guessing my lack of experience regarding sex. I wasn't completely innocent but
    every time a topic that had to do with sex came up, I would blush and turn away.
    
     
    "What do you mean what kind of
    things?" he asked.
    
     
    "What do you use?" I
    asked.
    
     
    "Hmm? What do we use? Ropes,
    whips, handcuffs, blindfolds, clamps," he shrugged. "Anything that
    can be fitted inside a woman's-" he stopped and turned to me. "Oh,
    are you blushing already? Come now, wouldn't you like to have a look?"
    
     
    My cheeks flamed red and I turned to
    stare at him incredulously. "I'm here to work, Victor, not to check out
    some kinky dungeon," I said.
    
     
    "Yes, but you do have to check
    everything, don't you?"
    
     
    I continued gaping at him, a burning
    sensation tumbling in my belly. "Yes, but-"
    
     
    "There is an event
    tonight," he said. "You should have a look," he suggested.
    
     
    I looked at him blankly.
    
     
    Was he asking me to go to the
    dungeon with him? Was it some sort of innuendo?
    
     
    "What… What do I need to do?" I swallowed, suddenly
    nervous.
    
     
    I sounded feeble and weak.
    
     
    "Submit," he said with a
    grin that scared me.

    Exiled from court, distrusted and indebted, Richard de Clare is a man whose past is greater than his prospects and whose once-great name overshadows his deeds. Having backed the loser in the civil war, he faces penury and disgrace due to the disfavour of the distant and over-mighty king.
    
     
     
    
     
    He has, however, one last gambit to play, one final attempt to claim a wealth and glory that would eclipse even the greatest exploits of his mighty fathers.
    
     
    And, nothing less than the hand of an Irish princess and a throne will suffice if Richard is to surpass the great feats of his family.

Adam makes it his priority to avoid the sassy weretigress whenever necessary. And yet, fate keeps throwing them together, often in intimate, risqué situations. People say two negatives don’t make a positive. Eva and Adam find the math wrong this time. When they’re together, it feels so right, furs fly. But neither Eva nor Adam are willing to admit it. 
    When you play the game of love, you win or remain single forever. . .
