Summary

Just A Dream 
 
Cheated out of her inheritance by a willful stepmother, Lady Elizabeth Stanton follows Nathaniel O'Connor to America -- eager to accept the dashing shipbuilder's proposal of marriage. But it is a stranger who greets the penniless miss at her intended's door -- the true owner of the grand Boston mansion, Nathaniel's handsome, secretive and insufferable older brother, Morgan. 
Just One Kiss 
 
The cruel treachery of a disloyal sibling left Morgan angry and bitter -- but he takes in the cad's forsaken fiancee nonetheless. And when one stolen kiss threatens scandal, he offers to wed the proud, golden-haired beauty himself. But Elizabeth is devoted to a rogue. And Morgan must first conquer his own pain and suspicion to know a passion that can thaw a frozen heart...and a love that can heal all wounds.

    Tempting Zander (Knight Security 4) is the 5th story in USA Today Bestselling author, Carole Mortimer’s, Amazon #1 Knight Security series. This is a spin-off series to the #1 Bestselling Alpha Series, so come and say hi to old friends and meet a lot of new ones! 
     
    Author’s Note: The stories in the Knight Security, Alpha, and Regency Unlaced Series have stronger sexual content and language than my other books. 
     
    When singer/songwriter superstar Kate Stewart’s ex-boyfriend starts issuing threats on her life, her manager hires Knight Security as extra protection during her world tour. As soon as Kate sets eyes on Zander Buchanan, six and a half feet of tattooed muscle and attitude, she realizes the man now in charge of protecting her is more of danger to her, and her heart, than her ex could ever be.  
     
    Being head of megastar Kate Stewart’s protection detail should have been just another job to Zander, instead it’s become his own living hell. Kate is beautiful, wilful, sexy as hell—and Zander wants her more than he has ever wanted any other woman. 
     
    Zander soon realizes he’s the one in need of protection. From Kate, and the desire that burns out of control whenever the two of them are alone together. 
    But her ex is still out there, biding his time, and Zander can’t afford the distraction of wanting Kate if he’s going to keep her safe. 
     
    Is Zander strong enough to resist her? Will Kate let him? Or will her ex-boyfriend make that decision for them both by killing Kate, as he’s threatened to do if she ever starts seeing another man?

    The Marquis of Whisinford and his friend Lord Alfred Middleton meet at White’s Club and tell each other how bored they are with the London Season and the same parties with the same people night after night.
    	They commiserate with each other for finding life so repetitive where nothing new ever happens.
    	Listening to them, the old Duke of Dunstead tells them that he has a solution to their problem and so he bets one of his well bred horses against one of theirs that, if they go out disguised as ordinary men, they will undoubtedly find an adventure of some kind on the open road. 
    	Because it is a bet and betting at White’s is traditional, the Marquis agrees to ride North as far as Northumberland disguised as an ordinary man, while Lord Alfred is to go South to Land’s End.
    	The Marquis sets off alone, his only possessions being what he can carry on his horse, Samson, using the name of Neil Barlow.
    	But he has not gone very far when a very pretty girl joins him on the road in a state of agitation and asks him if he will be kind enough to allow her to ride beside him.
    	She explains that she is running away from her stepfather who is forcing her into marriage with a man she loathes and detests.
    	She tells the Marquis that her name is Velina, but does not say anymore and he tells her only his Christian name and they ride on until they reach what appears to be a quiet inn.
    	After dinner, when the Marquis goes out to see if their horses are happy, he overhears three men talking and learns that they have been sent by Velina’s stepfather to kidnap her and take her forcibly back to her home.
    	The Marquis alerts Velina and they slip away at four o’clock in the morning before anyone else is awake and it is then that the Marquis suggests that they should stay off the main road and travel North by the twisting lanes of England.
    	How they encounter even more dramas than they have already.
    	How they rescue a small boy and his dog from a cruel drunkard.
    	How eventually Velina saves the Marquis’s horse and him from a highwayman and how they find even more on a road to romance, is all told in this exciting story by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    Only love can free her and only her love can break the chains that hold the Viscount imprisoned.

    Long-lost love, a hostile corporate takeover, and the death of her beloved husband turn attorney Molly Parr’s life into a tailspin that threatens to ruin everything she has worked for. Molly’s all-consuming job is to take over other companies, but when her first love, a man who she feels betrayed her, appears out of nowhere to try and acquire her business, long-hidden passions and secrets are exposed.
    
    Can Molly trust the man who broke her heart years ago, and who may be manipulating her now to get what he wants? Further complicating matters is the reemergence of her lost love’s brother, who was a dear friend and knows the shocking truth about their past. As Molly painfully revisits the old betrayal, she partners with her boss and mentor to fight the takeover at all costs—and the chaos that ensues forces Molly to chart a dramatic new direction for her life. She must decide: does she have the courage to follow her heart and expose her painful past—a decision that may cost her everything?
