Summary

From the author of Lady Chatterly’s Lover, his dramatic masterpiece on the complex relationships within a working-class family.Gertrude Morel married beneath her status and now loathes her drunken, working-class husband.

As Paul matures into a young artist, this relationship strains his attempts at connecting with other women, including the lovely Miriam Leivers. The emotional battle for his love and his soul between his mother and Miriam sets the scene for D. H. Lawrence’s celebrated exploration into human relationships and sexuality—controversial themes which he would explore in much of his writing.Sons and Lovers is D. H. Lawrence’s most widely read novel and one of the great works of twentieth-century literature. Originally published with certain passages removed, it is presented here in the restored form as originally intended.

    The award-winning author of Devlin’s Luck once again “keeps readers in eager anticipation” with a ribald Regency romance about the search for true love (RT Book Reviews).   Rich and beautiful, Lady Felicity Winterbourne has traveled the world in search of a place she can call home. And while there are many gentlemen eager to oblige her every wish, she knows that their ardor has more to do with her lavish dowry than true affection.   When she meets the roguish Gerald FitzDesmond, Earl of Kilgarvan, tales of his ramshackle Irish estate seize her imagination. Abandoning decorum, Felicity proposes a marriage of convenience, with the proviso—lest Gerald prove to be yet another fortune-hunter—that she holds the purse strings.   His dark looks and undeniable charm, however, soon complicate Felicity’s practical arrangement with the dizziest of desires. Meanwhile, the hard-headed Gerald finds himself becoming enchanted with his insubordinate new bride. But will either of these strong-willed souls be able to yield enough to hold on to their unlikely love?
