Summary

“I Claim, I Hold.”
No one keeps the Clan Gunn motto closer to his heart than its war chief, Jamie Gunn. Willing to keep the tenuous peace between clans by any means necessary, he would lay down his life for his family. So when word arrives that his aunt Ailis has been kidnapped for hiding a woman in her abbey, he takes to his steed at once. 
Lady Gilliane de Verrill came to the abbey seeking refuge from Guy de Orbrec, the cruel Norman despot who stole her hand in marriage on her father’s deathbed. When her only source of protection turns away Orbrec’s men and is kidnapped, Lady Gilliane knows there is only one thing she can do. Bearing responsibility for Ailis’ life on her shoulders, she rides off to seek help, with Orbrec’s men hot on her heels. 
When the two meet by chance in the woods, they encounter in each others eyes more danger than even Guy de Orbrec could provide. 
Will Jamie, struck by the beauty and kindness of this mysterious woman responsible for his aunt’s disappearance, risk his all for someone he barely knows? Can Lady Gilliane, taken by this hero seemingly lifted directly from her father’s fairy tales, look past his wild nature to the gentle man within? With a life on the line and Gilliane’s freedom at stake, their blossoming love could be their very destruction.

    Seven marriageable daughters . . . And Lord Zachary Griffin is just the man to help them.  
    After all, what could be more tantalizing than teaching the beautiful Witfeld sisters all the special ways of driving a man into submission—and marriage? And leading exquisite Caroline Witfeld, the most spirited and least frivolous sister, to temptation would be wildly delicious.  
    Zachary doesn't realize that Caroline's longing gazes have less to do with attraction and more to do with admission—to a prestigious arts conservatory. If only she could set those high cheekbones, that aristocratic brow, and those powerful shoulders to canvas, her dreams would all come true. But Caroline is soon having dreams of a very different sort—ones that involve the charming rogue and some improper behavior hardly befitting a lady dedicated to her art . . .unless she becomes dedicated to the art of love.

    “Eloisa James is extraordinary.”—Lisa Kleypas 
    “Nothing gets me to the bookstore faster than a new novel by Eloisa James.”—Julia Quinn 
    New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James gives the classic Hans Christian Andersen story of “The Ugly Duckling” a wonderful, witty, and delightfully passionate twist. The Ugly Duchess is another fairytale inspired romance from the unparalleled storyteller whose writing, author Teresa Medieros raves, “is truly scrumptious.” A sexy and fun historical romance, James’s winning tale of a glorious reawakening does not feature ducks and swans—rather it’s a charming story of a young woman unaware of her own beauty, suddenly duty-bound to wed the dashing gentleman who has always been her platonic best friend…until now.

    In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston's enticing new Seduction Diaries entry, a mysterious journal may provide a potential spinster with instruction—or lead her to her heart's desire 
    Free-spirited Lucy Westmore isn't yet a spinster, although she fully intends to be. Fortunately, an eccentric aunt has left her both a diary detailing the secrets to spinsterhood and a cottage in Cornwall. Unfortunately, an insufferable marquess is angling for her prize! Turning Lord Thomas Branston down flat should be easy. So why does this man who won't take no for an answer make Lucy's body and soul sigh yes? 
    Thomas knows the real value of Heathmore Cottage, and he has no intention of letting some silly Society miss get her hands on it. He'll simply have to charm Lucy into selling. But the clever young woman he encounters, first in London, then en route to Cornwall, stands stubbornly on her own two (quite lovely) feet. And now, Thomas can think only of sweeping her off them.
