Summary

When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules… 
Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do. 
His terms are simple: 
- They will be husband and wife by night only. 
- No lights, no kissing.  
- No questions about his battle scars.  
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again. 
But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own: 
- They will have dinner together every evening.  
- With conversation. 
- And unlimited teasing. 
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

    From Romance Writers of America’s® 2017 Golden Heart® winner comes a story of passion that is much more than meets the eye.
    An aging spinster at twenty-six, all Imogen Duncan sees ahead of her is a life of servitude to her overbearing mother. Her London Season has passed and her desperate shyness and reserved demeanor have destroyed any chance for a match. As her younger sister Mariah begins her own Season with a selection of suitors, Imogen believes her chances for excitement are well and truly lost…Until a case of mistaken identity and an accidental kiss brings her adventure. 
    Burying his guilt from a decade-old tragedy beneath a life of debauchery, Caleb Masters, Marquess of Willbridge, is content enough to meet willing widows in dark gardens to numb the pain.

    --- 
    His goal is to stand firm

But no matter how much he craves Janey Watson, keeping a physical barrier between them is his only choice, and if he can't have her, he refuses to have anyone. When Janey announces she's leaving town, all bets are off. Len decides it's time to take—and give—everything he's been holding back while he still has the chance. 
    Her gift is rocking his world 
    Janey's been crushing on Len for years, but he's never seemed interested in her. Until now. She's not sure what triggered his change of heart, but, hell yeah, she'll accept it. All of it. Every kiss, every touch, every mind-blowing climax. Working to meet the deadline for her move is not nearly as interesting as enjoying steamy escapades with the sexy mechanic she's always desired.

    The Hunted series continues as Special Agent Sam Turner discovers that protecting the FBI's star witness is more difficult than he thought! 
    Bakery owner Elizabeth Hamilton's quiet life is filled with sweet treats, good friends, and a loving family. But all of that is about to turn sour when an odd sound draws her outside. There's a man lying unconscious in the street, a car speeding toward him. Without hesitation, she gets the man out of harm's way before they're run down. 
    Unwittingly, Elizabeth has put herself in the path of a serial murderer, and as the only one who can identify the FBI's Silver Fox Killer, she's ended up in the hospital with a target on her back. 
    All that stands between her and death is Special Agent Sam Turner. Against his better judgment, Sam gets emotionally involved, determined to take down the double threat against Elizabeth—an ex desperate to get her back, despite a restraining order, and a psychopath bent on silencing her before she can identify him. 
    They set a trap to catch the killer—putting Elizabeth in his hands, with Sam desperate to save her. If he's lucky, he'll get his man . . . and the girl.

    For one night she had everything. 
    Pro snowboarder Stella Lazarus has always loved her brother's best friend. But the one time she tried to show him, she was shot down faster than you can say "competitor disqualified." 
    Until one blissful night in Tahoe, when Stella finally gets her man. 
    Or does she? In the morning, Stella and Bear wake up to horrible news. The sort that sends them racing back to Vermont, and straight into the arms of guilt and family obligations. 
    For all of Bryan “Bear” Barry’s life, three natural laws held true: his best friend Hank was destined for greatness, Hank’s sister Stella was off-limits, and Bear would always manage to negotiate the rocky paths that life threw his way. In the space of two days, that’s all shattered.  
    Bear can't believe he slipped up so badly with Stella. Even if his best friend wasn’t lying broken in a hospital bed, it would still be unforgivable. Determined to do better, he devotes himself to his friend's recovery, denying himself the very person he loves. And the very thing he needs.
