Summary

Northanger Abbey follows seventeen-year-old Gothic novel aficionado Catherine Morland and family friends Mr. and Mrs. Allen as they visit Bath, England. Catherine is in Bath for the first time. There she meets her friends such as Isabella Thorpe, and goes to balls. Catherine finds herself pursued by Isabella's brother, the rather rough-mannered, slovenly John Thorpe, and by her real love interest, Henry Tilney. She also becomes friends with Eleanor Tilney, Henry's younger sister. Henry captivates her with his view on novels and his knowledge of history and the world. General Tilney (Henry and Eleanor's father) invites Catherine to visit their estate, Northanger Abbey, which, from her reading of Ann Radcliffe's gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho, she expects to be dark, ancient and full of Gothic horrors and fantastical mystery.

    A knight never reveals her secrets . . .  
    When young Diana Winslow arrived at Castle Bannaster, her beauty and bravery disguised beneath a servant's dress, she had no idea her life would change forever. But now the cruel and lecherous Viscount Bannaster lies dead—and the novice Bladeswoman cannot escape her guilt. Nothing, not even fighting for the Crown, can erase her fears . . . especially when she comes face to face with Thomas, the viscount's startlingly seductive brother. 
    Desperate to keep him from discovering the truth, Diana attempts a daring abduction. But all her skills as a knight are no defense against the powerful, irresistible nobleman who has just become her prisoner. A man with a mystery of his own. A man who eyes her so hungrily, so wantonly, that he could tempt her to give up all her secrets for one wicked night in his arms . . .

    A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways. 
    Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss. 
    Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract— fiancée instead of PA. 
    What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love? 
    Sparks.  
    That’s what happens. 
    Can the power of love really change a person? 
    Will they survive the contract? 
    What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

    I could make her. Or break her. 
    I plan to do both… 
      
    I don’t like the word ‘no.’ 
    Especially when the word comes from the lips of the curviest, most gorgeous blonde I’ve ever seen. Elizabeth Downing thinks she can give me the brush-off. Maybe because she has no idea what kind of cold, ruthless bastard she’s dealing with.  
     
    Or that I own the best art gallery in town. 
     
    She wants to sell her paintings. I can make that happen. She wants to support her disabled sister. I can make that happen too. I can make her dreams come true, but they won’t come cheap. 
      
    Once she signs my iron-clad contract, I’ll own her. She’s a virgin and has no clue about the dark things I have in store for her soft, tempting and untouched body… 
    EXCERPT: 
    “You have a lot to learn, my pet,” he warned, though he seemed to take pleasure in the idea of doling out the lesson. “You’ve broken the rules with impunity and it’s my job as your master to teach you the error of your ways.” 
    “You’re not my master,” she spat, eyes burning at the pain of his grip. She knew finger bruises were going to pop along her arm where his fingertips dug. “I’m a human being! You can’t own me and you never will.” 
    “You signed a contract. No matter that you chafe at the conditions after the fact — you will adhere to the letter of my law or face the consequences.” 
    “I don’t want to be your slave and you don’t have the right to demand access to my private thoughts and feelings,” she said, choking on her tears. “Why are you doing this to me? I’m nobody! I’ve never done anything to deserve this crap that’s happening to me.” 
    “Life isn’t fair,” he returned coldly. “You’re not a child; it’s time to stop acting like one. Life is what you make it. You took the opportunity presented to you and now you have to see it through. End of story.” 
    Author's Note: The Buchanan billionaires are swoon-worthy book boyfriends but the road to bliss is pretty rocky! If heart-pounding romance and bigger-than-life heroes are your thing, I'm about to become your new best friend because that's what my books are all about. Guaranteed HEA, I promise.
