Pretty, flighty Daisy Devreaux can either go to jail or marry the mystery man her father has chosen for her. Arranged marriages don't happen in the modern world, so how did the irrepressible Daisy find herself in this fix?
Alex Markov, as humorless as he is deadly handsome, has no intention of playing the loving bridegroom to a spoiled little feather-head with champagne tastes. He drags Daisy from her uptown life to a broken down traveling circus and sets out to tame her to his ways.
But this man without a soul has met his match in a woman who's nothing but heart. Before long, passion will send them flying sky high without a safety net... risking it all in search of a love that will last forever.
Giada Borghi has always known exactly what she wants. Graduating with honours? Check. An internship at a prestigious consulting company in Milan? Check! Ariberto Castelli, with his pretty face and unironically monogrammed shirts? Definitely not.
Sure, they may have shared a kiss in a nightclub once upon a time – that doesn't change anything! Boys like Ariberto and girls like Giada just don't belong together. But working so closely with a handsome Italian is bound to turn any girl's head, especially as she realises there's more to Ariberto than meets the eye.
The summer days are long and hot... can Giada make it through with her head – and heart – intact?
Maryanne loves being invisible, and her job as a time-traveling research scientist fulfills that desire. But when her invisibility transmitter malfunctions, the worse possible person—the Marquess of Avingdale—finds her. Handsome and debonair, the marquis shows interest, but his death is the reason she traveled back to 1813 England. When he forgoes a tryst with a married woman that would’ve proved deadly, Maryanne fears she’s changed the handsome lord’s future by ensuring his survival. Jonathan Blakely, the Marquess of Avingdale, is on his way for an assignation with his latest lover when he spies the intriguing, yet socially awkward Maryanne at a house party. She’s crass in the most endearing way, but she’s keeping secrets—ones he is determined to find out. The more she avoids him, the more he’s compelled to solve the enigma she presents. What he doesn’t wager is that doing so will transport him to a new world of wondrous inventions and tie him to Maryanne in a way he never thought possible.
