So when the earl himself marches into her office and invites her to experience his illicit pursuits firsthand, Eleanor is stunned. Gambling hells, phaeton races, masquerades . . . What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake?

    Bestselling author Rosanne Bittner delves deep into the memories of a lonely man, a passionate heart, and a mountain with a deep past.
     
    When Sage McKenzie comes across a wild-eyed beauty in obvious distress, his first instinct is to turn and flee like the Native tribes who fear this "crazy woman.” As a man of the mountain, affairs of the heart are low on his priority. But her violet stare has him ensnared, and Sage knows he has to help her in any way he can. Taking this silent beauty as his new travel companion, Sage begins a journey to find out where she's from and who took her away from her home and family.
     
    With her memory seemingly vanished, the girl known only as “White Deer” has a past she knows must be terrible—why else would she have erased it from her mind? But now, in the protective arms of Sage, she finds herself living for his gentle touch and ready to confront the secrets of her past.

    "Powerful…harrowing…[Raine Cantrell] has pulled out all the stops!" —Katherine Deauxville, author of Blood Red Roses
    Bound by promise, torn by betrayal.
    Matched to a child from an enemy clan, Dhu Micheil, the Black Laird of Clan Gunn, has no intention of settling down with his promised bride—nor any woman, for that matter. Consumed with lust for revenge against Clan MacKay for the unforgivable pain wrought upon his younger sister, Micheil’s plans for his promised bride may be, by far, the cruelest fate to fall upon her.
    Seana nic Mackay, torn from her family without knowing why, has lived the life of a hostage in the territory of Clan Gunn since she was a child. Locked away in an abbey, waiting for a man who would not have her, Seana longs for but a taste of freedom, cursing the name of the man that will forever keep it just out of her reach: Micheil.
    But when Seana, free for a single day to attend a fair, crosses paths unknowingly with the man sworn to be her ruin, neither can resist the other’s pull. Micheil steals her first kiss. Seana steals his heart. 
    Can Micheil go through with the plans he swore to his father and clan he’d put into motion? Or will Seana be a casualty of a war she had no say in?

    The first irresistible installment in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston's Seduction Diaries series proves that some secrets are too delicious to hide. 
    Pretty and popular, Miss Clare Westmore knows exactly what (or rather, who) she wants: the next Duke of Harrington. But when she twists her ankle on the eve of the Season’s most touted event, Clare is left standing in the wallflower line watching her best friend dance away with her duke. 
    Dr. Daniel Merial is tempted to deliver more than a diagnosis to London's most unlikely wallflower, but he doesn’t have time for distractions, even one so delectable. Besides, she's clearly got her sights on more promising prey. So why can’t he stop thinking about her? 
    All Clare wants to do is return to the dance floor. But as her former friends try to knock her permanently out of place, she realizes with horror she is falling for her doctor instead of her duke. When her ankle finally heals and she faces her old life again, will she throw herself back into the game? 
    Or will her time in the wallflower line have given her a glimpse of who she was really meant to be?
