Summary

You met star quarterback Kevin Tucker in This Heart of Mine. Now get ready to meet his shark of an agent, Heath Champion, and Annabelle Granger, the girl least likely to succeed. 
Annabelle's endured dead-end jobs, a broken engagement . . . even her hair's a mess! But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town. 
Why does the wealthy, driven, and gorgeous sports agent Heath Champion need a matchmaker, especially a red-haired screw-up like Annabelle Granger? True, she's entertaining, and she does have a certain quirky appeal. But Heath is searching for the ultimate symbol of success -- the perfect wife. And to make an extraordinary match, he needs an extraordinary matchmaker, right? 
Soon everyone in Chicago has a stake in the outcome, and a very big question: When the determined matchmaker promised she'd do anything to keep her star client happy . . . did she mean anything? If Annabelle isn't careful, she just might find herself going heart-to-heart with the toughest negotiator in town.

All she knows is that it is the place where she was born and where her father, the late Lord Rosscullen, died. She knows when he died and where, but how is a complete mystery. To Rosaleena amazement the subject is never discussed in Sir Uriel’s household – indeed, it is a matter that is actively avoided by everyone and no one will tell her the truth of what happened. Now, on the eve of her twenty-first birthday, Rosaleena is about to meet the man who will bring her face to face with her unknown past – the enigmatic and mysterious Colonel Joyce. When Rosaleena invites the Colonel to her birthday ball at Sir Uriel’s London house and he graciously accepts much to the strangely virulent disapproval of Sir Uriel, she sets in motion a sequence of events that will turn her life upside down. Journeying from fashionable London Society to the rugged mountains of a remote part of Ireland, Rosaleena will discover not only that true love never does run smooth but that it is by its nature never tame.

    After the death of her beloved mother, the beautiful young Salrina Milborne and her father, Lord Milborne, have found themselves in straitened circumstances.
    	And now that her father has hurt his leg in a riding accident he is unable to complete the training of the horses they depend on for their income. 	Reluctantly Lord Milborne has agreed to sell one of his most precious thoroughbreds and, against his better judgement, he allows Salrina to ride unaccompanied to complete the sale some distance from their Manor House. 
    	When a vicious storm strikes, Salrina takes shelter in the stables of a Posting inn and there she overhears a conversation that will change her life. 
    	An English aristocrat is scheming with a sinister Frenchman to assassinate the Prince Regent at one of his extravagant parties at Carlton House in London!
    	In the middle of the War against Napoleon this would have a devastating effect on British morale and would hand a considerable advantage to the French Emperor.
    	Terrified, Salrina takes the news to the haughtily handsome Alaric, the Earl of Fleetwood, who at first believes that her story is a ploy to gain entry to his exclusive parties. 
    	She dislikes the arrogant Earl intensely, but is impressed by his magnificent houses in London and the country. 
    	But gradually, as she discerns his heroic hidden qualities, her hate turns to an all-encompassing love.

    Raised by her aunt and uncle, the sanctimonious Duke and Duchess of Berkhamsted, the golden-haired and beautiful Alida Shenley lives in the shadow of the ‘shame’ that her late and much-loved father brought upon the family by marrying for love – and because her mother was a ballerina. 
    Being on the stage was tantamount to prostitution in Alida’s Guardians’ eyes and they inflict terrible punishments and humiliation upon her for what they see as her parent’s appalling sins.
    Even worse than her uncle’s savage whippings is the fact that he forbids her ever to marry as the carries the ‘bad blood’ of her mother.
    But hope eventually stirs in her heart when she is asked to accompany her cousin Mary on a voyage to Russia to meet the handsome young Prince Vorontski, whom Mary is to marry even though she flirts outrageously with the sinister Count Ivan, who is on the Steamer escorting them to St. Petersburg. 
    In Russia Alida’s dreams of happiness are dashed as she falls hopelessly in love with Prince. 
    Worse still she finds that Mary has conspired with Count Ivan for her to marry his father, a Russian General as despicable and brutal as her uncle. 
    But just as she despairs of ever finding love with the Prince, Fate intervenes amid a life or death confrontation with a murderous pack of wolves in the Russian snow and her life is changed forever.

    As a minor member of the Greek Royal Family in exile in England, beautiful young Princess Giona knows her Fate only too well. One day she is to marry for duty to her country rather than for love. But to her horror, destiny comes calling far too soon when by Queen Victoria’s Royal Command she must marry the ageing and unpleasant King of the Balkan State of Slavonia in order to prevent it being swallowed up by its powerful neighbours, Austria and Germany. Arriving at the Capital City of Slavonia to meet her Royal suitor, she is horrified by his rudeness and contempt for his people – even as they take Giona to their hearts. But on the Royal Train, Giona has a thrilling encounter in the dark with a mystery man, who she saves from capture and execution by the Royal Guards. Could this man be the so-called pretender to the throne she has heard whispered about secretly, the revered ‘Invisible One’? Departing as mysteriously as he arrived, he promises, as she has saved his life, that he will rescue Giona if she ever needs him and her position in Slavonia becomes impossible to bear. When the old King reveals his true brutal nature, Giona sends for ‘The Invisible One’ and soon she has lost her heart to this gentle revolutionary, who is actually called Miklōs, Slavonia’s rightful ruler, and who soon will crown her with love if his revolution proves to be successful and it only can be with Giona’s help.
