When her grandmother dies, Paola, the beautiful young daughter of the Earl and Countess of Berisforde is dismayed to find that the family’s customary six months’ mourning means that she will miss her debut in the London Season.
Instead her mother sends her to stay in the ancient and historic Italian town of Lucca with her aunt, the Contessa Raulo, who is to be her chaperone.
Paola’s adventurer cousin Hugo arrives just before she leaves and asks a favour of Paola that is to prove fateful.
Having promised her mother that she will avoid him at all costs, Paola must now seek out a notorious ‘ladies’ man’, the Marchese Vittorio di Lucca, and deliver a precious package to him.
It is a huge diamond set in a ring that had been presented some years earlier to the Marchese by the Nizam of Hyderabad, which had been stolen and which Hugo had brilliantly retrieved at great risk to his life.
Within the spectacular mediaeval ramparts of Lucca, Paola accomplishes her mission, falls in love with the beautiful town – and then, after a terrifying ordeal at the hands of murderous thugs, with its most prominent citizen as well!
Conway Barsetti doesn't want me to be a model anymore.
He wants to keep me all to himself.
I inspire him in ways no one else does.
Now I'm living with him in his beautiful mansion, and I don't feel like a prisoner anymore. I'm free to do what I want, with some limitations. But he treats me so coldly, seeing me as an object rather than a person.
His family comes by for lunch and he tells me to stay in my room so they won't see me.
But I have a better idea. I'll make them believe I'm his girlfriend, that we live together and we're in love. Unless he treats me better, I'll tell his parents and sister what our arrangement really is.
And humiliate him.
My virginity was priceless but he put dollars on it.
I didn’t think it was possible. Troy Black was a billionaire who didn’t need to buy girls. But at the virgin auction, he bought me and suddenly I belonged to the alpha male.
He made it sweet for me though.
I wore his clothes.
Ate the best food.
And slept in a big, fluffy bed.
But everything came with a price …and the billionaire wanted my virginity!
Hey Readers -- This is a sexy, over-the-top romance that will make your cheeks burn and your panties melt. Guaranteed HEA with no cheating and no cliffhangers. You’ll love it, I promise. Xoxo, Cassie

Ryker finally told me what happened all those months ago. He explained his distance, his coldness.
Now everything makes sense.

It's the calm before the storm.
I can feel it.
