Summary

After suffering a devastating loss, artist Sandra Lyall runs south to Mexico seeking solace from her grief. She finds refuge in a small Baja hotel on the edge of the sea to which she returns each winter to continue the healing of her heart. But this year’s stay would be different. When a scruffy Englishman with a posh accent offers to buy the painting she’s working on, everything changes, and Sandra finds herself torn between her hard-won serenity and her draw to a compelling but risky alternative. 
Mark Jeffery’s film career is in decline, his ex-wife’s behaviour has landed him in the tabloids, and he’s got nothing better to do than hang out in Mexico waiting for the phone to ring. When he meets a woman painting a seascape on the roof of his friend’s hotel, he discovers a “not terribly exciting but predictable and rather refreshing” distraction from his troubled life. As Mark spends more time with her, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to this ordinary woman. 
With the magical waters of the Sea of Cortez as its backdrop, House of the Blue Sea tells a tale of surviving loss, seeing the extraordinary, and finding happiness in unexpected places.

    Until the night she didn’t show up.  
    Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want . . . so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?  
    Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence—and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.

    Legend says that whomever possesses the St. John talisman ring will find their one true love. Now that the ring rests in the pocket of renowned scoundrel Brandon St. John, the dashing rake must decide whether it is a blessing…or a curse. 
    Never has the irresistible rogue, Brandon St. John, pursued a woman with more fervor—but his ardent suit of Lady Verena Westforth has a different purpose. The delectable blond lovely is indeed enticing, but Brandon suspects her of hiding a valuable missive that he has sworn to recover. With a sensuous kiss and a passionate caress he intends to lower Verena’s guard…and then discover where she’s hidden “the goods.” 
    Without the missive, Verena stands to lose the one thing dearest to her heart. And now an extraordinary man has entered her life…at the worst possible time! Vulnerable though she may be, Verena vows she will not be just another of Brandon’s “conquests,” even as she aches to melt in his arms. But is he a needed friend or a foe in alluring disguise…and will she be able to prove to him that love is their true destiny?

    She'd Never Marry Him!The last man Arabella Hadley ever wishes to see again is Lucien Deveraux, the handsome, dissolute Duke of Wexford -- who broke her innocent heart years ago and disappeared to London. So when she finds an unconscious man on her deserted country road and sees that it's Lucien, she's tempted to leave him there. But even more appalling than his presence is the brazen kiss he plants on her shocked lips and her response! So it would be totally insane to take him home to recover -- wouldn't it? 
    Except For One Small Thing...Lucien dares not reveal why he's returned to his country estate -- or why he abandoned the strong-willed beauty years ago. Especially since Arabella clearly has secrets of her own. But when her scheming, marriage-minded aunts successfully compromise them, the two are forced to become man and wife. Which makes it ever harder for both to battle the passion that never disappeared...
