Summary

An Overnight Billionaire…
 
When Carson Frost inherits a confectionary that rakes in billions but is too cash-strapped to last another sixty days, he agrees to take a loan from his late father’s rival. There are two catches: Carson has to sign over a permanent stake in the company and marry the man’s daughter.
 
 
 
Concocts a Fake Bride…
 
Two weeks before the wedding, he gets cold feet and claims he’s in love with someone else. The investor says he’ll still hand over the cash if Carson takes a stroll down the aisle—with the woman who owns his heart. Since he isn’t even dating anyone, Carson panics. Where is he going to find a bride willing to jilt him at the altar on such short notice?
 
 
 
And Whips Up a Little Love.
 
Ella Hope is an actress happy for any paying gig, but jilting a hottie in public isn’t what she had in mind. Still, she needs rent, and he’s in a bind. How hard can it be? While playing at matrimony, suddenly their intimacy isn’t so fake. Ella can’t help but fantasize that Carson is her groom and they will live happily ever after. But once his company is safe, will he want her anymore?

    Beautiful young Aspasia Stanton and her twin brother Jerry are horrified when they receive a letter addressed to their uncle and guardian, the much-loved Reverend Theophilus Stanton from Her Grace the Duchess of Grimstone. In it she coldly announces that that having "reached the age of sixty-five, you are retired from your living and you will vacate the Vicarage within a month of this date".
    Whatever are they do do? Without the Reverend's stipend they have nothing at all to live on – And what of Little Medlock's parishioners, who love their Vicar so dearly? 
    Although the Duchess is notoriously a completely ruthless woman without a heart, Aspasia resolves to go to visit her and throw herself on her mercy, saying "I will do – anything you ask of me if Uncle Theophilus may remain at Little Medlock."
    The poor innocent has no grasp of the evil that goes on behind Grimstone's doors or of the terrible things that the wicked Duchess will demand of her. 
    But the Fate sends the imperious, yet handsome, Marquis of Thame to visit the Duchess – a gentleman unimpressed and undaunted by her disreputable and wicked ways. But will he step in to save Aspasia from humiliation and dishonour?

    In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing…but which Whitridge twin is the right groom? 
    The penniless orphan of a disreputable earl, Lady Charlene Blanchard thrives on the adventure of picking the pockets of unsavory gentlemen to survive. But due to her extraordinary beauty and prized bloodlines, she is hand-chosen as a potential bride for the Duke of Baynton, who is on the hunt for a suitable wife to provide heirs. All Char has to do is act the part she was born to play and charm a duke she’s never laid eyes on into proposing. Except the duke turns out to be the tall, dark and sexy stranger who just caught her red-handed as a thief!  
    Or is he? Jack Whitridge is the duke’s twin who had “gone missing” over ten years ago. Now back in England, he knows that the supposed Lady who has his brother’s love is hardly duchess material—except he needs her to save his adopted country from war. He is willing to bargain with her heart, until he finds himself falling for Char . . .

    The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan. 
     
    She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.  
     
    The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.  
     
    But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.  
     
    How can I resist when the sexual sparks zapping between us set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns about my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?
