Summary

In the vein of Mission Impossible, one man who dabbles in espionage takes on a security-systems testing job, only to be thwarted by the woman in charge. But though bad boy Quinn believes he can easily overcome the prim and proper Maggie, he learns she has a spine of steel. 
GQ—aka Quinn—is the last man on the planet Magdalene Walsh should consider getting involved with; after all, he freely admits he's trying to steal her security program, the one that would be the pinnacle of her career. He's made no bones about the fact that she is a job to him, one that's worth millions. So Maggie has no reason to believe someone else is out to get her program—at any cost. Her family turned on her in her youth, forcing her to live on the streets. Trust is at an all-time low; betrayal is the foundation upon which her life is built. Maggie is pretty savvy when it comes to human nature... but while her head tells her GQ must be lying, her gut says he's not.  
Ten years working Military Intelligence has put Quinn Goodman in some compromising positions, including some Secret Ops that have cost innocent lives. He's eager to put the past behind him and work for his former Commanding Officer in a NYC private security firm, mixing in some espionage on the side. His first mission should be rather routine—break into the target's penthouse under the guise of testing her new security system but sabotage it while he's there. However, a deadly team of assassins is on the case, too, putting Quinn in another precarious spot: should he risk an innocent person's life once again, or put up with the most bitter, scathing, vicious, beautiful woman he's ever met?

    Five well-bred sisters, one sensational scandal. Now the Duke of Marymount’s daughter Ida is about to find love in the most unconventional way . . . 
    It was easy for society to overlook Lady Ida Howlett; they found her bookish, opinionated, and off the marriage mart. But little did they know that behind a calm exterior beats the heart of an adventuress, one who, determined to discover her runaway sister’s whereabouts, steals a carriage and sets off on a daring mission. Then she discovers she’s not alone! Bennett, Lord Carson, is inside, and he refuses to leave. 
    Lord Carson’s plans had always been to find a soft, gentle wife who would run his home and raise his children. Still, he makes a bargain with Ida—he won’t desert her during her mad adventure. He’ll make sure she’s safe, and then find a suitable lady to fall in love with. But when rules (and garments) become discarded during this long, intimate journey, it’s soon clear that this surprisingly daring lady is the woman he’s needed all along.

    Although beautiful young widow Phoebe, Lady Clare, has never met West Ravenel, she knows one thing for certain: he’s a mean, rotten bully. Back in boarding school, he made her late husband’s life a misery, and she’ll never forgive him for it. But when Phoebe attends a family wedding, she encounters a dashing and impossibly charming stranger who sends a fire-and-ice jolt of attraction through her. And then he introduces himself...as none other than West Ravenel. 
    West is a man with a tarnished past. No apologies, no excuses. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire...not to mention the bitter awareness that a woman like her is far out of his reach. What West doesn’t bargain on is that Phoebe is no straitlaced aristocratic lady. She’s the daughter of a strong-willed wallflower who long ago eloped with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent—the most devilishly wicked rake in England. 
    Before long, Phoebe sets out to seduce the man who has awakened her fiery nature and shown her unimaginable pleasure. Will their overwhelming passion be enough to overcome the obstacles of the past? 
    Only the devil’s daughter knows…

    The Duke’s five daughters have beauty, breeding, and impeccable reputations. Or at least, they did. Now that two have chosen to follow their hearts, can the others be far behind? 
    Lady Olivia refuses to repeat her siblings’ scandalous mistakes. Instead, she will marry the lord rejected by her sister and help with his good works. When he resists, Olivia forms another plan: win his lordship’s admiration by helping his illegitimate best friend find a bride. How difficult can it be to transform the rakish Edward Wolcott into a gentleman? To ignore his virile good looks? To not kiss him in a moment of impulsive madness? Apparently, very difficult indeed. 
    Edward Wolcott promised his ailing father he would marry well, and it appears Lady Olivia wishes to assist him. The sparkling firebrand intends to smooth his way through London’s ballrooms, parlors, and eligible ladies, while all Edward’s thoughts suddenly revolve around bedrooms . . . and Lady Olivia herself.  Only a scoundrel would seduce the duke’s most dutiful daughter. And only a truly reckless lady would risk everything to be in his arms . . .

    About the Book: The book is an amalgamation of five different shades of love. Love, which is sometimes expressive, sometimes non expressive, sometimes can’t be expressed and sometimes not required to express, but yet it is the most powerful sentiment which drives one to lead an extraordinary life. Though Love has millions and millions of shades but in this book I was able to capture only five shades in the form of stories. Let’s see how many of them you will be able to relate and enjoy.
