Summary

Six sizzling Regency romances from “a talented author with a real gift for linking the modern reader to the glamorous past” (RT Book Reviews).    In The Rake’s Redemption, a gentleman’s life of luxury collides with a young widow’s journey to London, and the impact sends them tumbling into each other’s arms.   In Scandal’s Child, a marriage of convenience leads to a surprising passion between a spirited lady and a French nobleman.   A soldier returns from the war a changed man, and the love he left behind is tested in the toughest of battles in A Soldier’s Heart.   Two hotheaded nobles clash in My Lord’s Lady, only to discover that sparks fly between them.   When a woman helps a man rediscover his past in The Duke’s Deceit, she risks losing the blissful future they’ve begun to create.   And in The Christmas Ball, a masquerade party finds passions aflame while leaving identities hidden.

She is sure to face ruinous scandal, rejection from her Puritanical father, and absolute poverty should she be cast out. Her only escape is to accept the proposal of Maj. Angus McCartney, a scarred and taciturn soldier.   Angus needs Emily for escape as well—from the haunting grief over the sins of his past and the tragic death of his mistress. But as Napoleon cuts a swath across Europe, Angus is sent on a mission to snare a notorious female spy. But neither he nor Emily is prepared for where the mission will lead them: straight into a trap of family betrayals and deadly secrets. Now, in a time of war, Emily and Angus will discover that their hard-won love could be the only thing that can save them.

    While his brothers and their new wives search for who shot him, Wyatt Hunt is temporarily bedridden and completely miserable. Somehow Molly Garner's limited skills have made her the most qualified in their circle to care for Wyatt. But by the time he's healed, she's fed up with him and the whole ungrateful family.

    To an outsider, Cassandra Shaw's life looks perfect. She lives in a beautiful, luxurious house in the English countryside, with a handsome, wealthy boyfriend who insists she needn't do a day's work in her life. But Cassie knows that something is not right. Her boyfriend has grown colder, treating her more like a housekeeper than a future wife. And her time feels empty and purposeless.
     
    Cassandra has always been riddled with insecurities and self-doubt, but, just for once, she decides to take a chance on a new beginning. She answers an advert for a live-in nanny, dogwalker, cook and all-round 'Superhuman' for a family living in a rambling manor house on the rugged North Cornish coast. The work is hard and tiring, but Cassie has never felt so fulfilled.
     
    As Cassie learns to connect with the natural beauty unfolding around her, Cornwall starts to offer up its secrets. Soon, Cassie starts wondering if she was drawn to this isolated part of the coast for a reason. Why was she guided to Foxcombe Manor? What are the flashes of light she sees in the valley? Is it her imagination or does someone brush past her? And who is the mysterious man living deep in the woods?
