Summary

In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell's glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing… until the return of a rake throws a bride's plans— and heart—into a tailspin 
Every debutante aspires to snag a duke. Elin Morris just happens to have had one reserved since birth. But postponements of her marriage to London's most powerful peer give Elin time to wonder how she will marry Gavin Baynton when she cannot forget his brother, Benedict. 
Already exasperated at being yanked from the military to meet "family obligations," now Ben must suffer watching his arrogant sibling squire the only woman he has ever loved. Joining the army saved Ben from sinking into bitterness, but seeing Elin again takes him back to the day they surrendered to their intoxicating desire. 
As the wedding draws near, Elin tries to push Ben far from her thoughts. When danger brings them together, there is no denying their feelings. But can Elin choose love over duty...?

    Brooks Barry was a corporate shark and one of the youngest billionaires in Australia.  For five years he travelled the world, buying up floundering businesses, streamlining them and then selling them off for profit.  He was good at what he did, but there was something missing in his life.  When one of his good friends fell in love, Brooks decided that maybe it was time to go home and actually live in the mansion he'd built for his wife before she left him for her ex-boyfriend.  Seeing Hunter and Bailey together made Brooks think that maybe he could find that if he would only stop running from the heartbreak of his divorce. 
    Harper Fenwick had been a nanny for four and a half years, but she'd never had to face this situation before.  Her employer, Heather, had decided that she was sick of being a single mother and instructed Harper to take her daughter, Piper, to her father.  The only problem was that he didn't know she existed.  When she first laid eyes on Brooks Barry, she could barely get a word out due to a large part of her brain shutting down as lust took over her frontal cortex.  She immediately developed a major crush on her boss and she still had to explain about the four year old little girl who was dying to meet him. 
    This is a standalone sexy billionaire romance - no cliff-hanger! 
    *This is a 'Too Hot to Handle' romance on the Emma Lea rating scale - These are definitely 18+ reads and contain graphic sex scenes and high level swearing – not for the faint of heart

    Sheldon Kinswood was at White's Club with his friends when a Steward asks them if they know of a really good valet, as the Duke of Dartmoor is desperately looking for one.
    It is then that Sheldon tells his friends that the Duke is his uncle and he is living the life of a recluse in the country. The reason being that nine years ago the Duke's fiancée had left him the day before their Wedding and ran off with her riding master.
    This had affected the Duke so badly that since then he has categorically refused to allow a woman to come into his house nor onto his estate. Or indeed anywhere near him.
    Worse still, he has not allowed his family any of the money that they were entitled to as he did not want any of his money to go to females.
    Sheldon's friends suggest that, as the Duke would not recognise him, he applies for the position of valet at Dartmoor Hall to find out exactly what the Duke is doing with his money.
    They then take bets as to whether Sheldon will get the job and if he does whether he will be able to change the Duke in any way.
    Shortly after his arrival at Dartmoor Hall the Duke is shot by a burglar in his shoulder and is seriously ill.
    Sheldon then asks his cousin, Lady Kenton, to urgently send a nurse, who, of course, must be male, to care for the ailing Duke.
    How the male nurse, when he arrives, looks rather strange to the Duke's staff, but seems competent.
    How the Duke himself recovers almost miraculously and unexpectedly appears to have changed.
    And how Sheldon finds love at the magic pool in the wood is all told in this unusual and exciting story by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    “Lorraine Heath’s books are always magic.”—Cathy Maxwell 
    “[Heath’s] deftly skilled story-telling entrances and enthralls from the first page to last.”—Karen Hawkins  
    Historical romance readers just can’t get enough of the Lost Lords of Pembrook. In her previous book, She Tempts the Duke, New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath introduced three brooding and intensely passionate brothers determined to reclaim their stolen birthright, as their righteous quest inadvertently leads each one down a separate path to true love. The story continues with Heath’s Lord of Temptation, as a dark and dangerous lord hardened by a life at sea sets his sights on one virtuous woman who, unlike so many of his conquests, would deny him what he hungers for most. When it comes to creating breathtaking love stories, irresistible rogue heroes, and heart-stopping sensuality, Lorraine Heath always delivers—and this Lord is one temptation no romance lover should resist…especially fans of Lisa Kleypas and Liz Carlyle!
