It was a shock to suddenly realize that her emotions were no longer under control – that she was falling in love with Doctor MacDiarmid's son!

    The Duke of Laverdale is ambitious to be appointed Master of the Horse and the new 
    Queen Adelaide is determined that behaviour at Court should be moral after the licentiousness of King George IV.
    	The Duke therefore ends his affaire de coeur with the enchanting Lady Sybil Mersham and drops his ballet dancer mistress as well.
    	Up to now he has been determined not to be married, but he now decides to become respectable and find a suitable bride as befits his standing.	
    	As he has always avoided debutantes, he asks the Marquis of Coleburn, whom he has known since he was a boy, to help him.
    	The Marquis is delighted and tells the Duke that he has the perfect wife for him in his beautiful daughter Oleta, who would have been a debutante by now but for family mourning.
    	The Duke arranges to visit the Marquis, who returns home to tell his daughter that she is a very lucky girl.
    	Oleta, however, is horrified at the idea of marrying a man she has never seen and who obviously cannot be in love with her.  She is very romantic and loves the country especially the woods, which have a magical influence on her and she talks to them when she rides through them on her beloved horse, Apollo.
    	When the Marquis tells her that she cannot refuse the Duke, even if he has to drag her to the altar, Oleta runs away to her old Nanny in Norfolk, having no idea of the dangers she might face on the journey.
    	When the Duke arrives to stay with the Marquis, he is appalled to learn that, because she is afraid of him, Oleta has ridden off on her own.  He then follows her as he has a much faster horse than anyone else.
    	How the Duke finds Oleta in a dangerous predicament and how he saves her.
    	How, not knowing who he is, she is impressed by his intelligence, his kindness and his bravery.
    	And how, when they finally escape from horse-thieves, he takes her to a place where they can be alone and how there they can both dream the same dream of love, is all told in this thrilling romance by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    A devilish rake will do anything to learn the secret of a straitlaced schoolmarm in this Regency romance by the bestselling author of The Troublemaker. Word has it that every awkward young lady sent to Mrs. Hester Poitevant’s Mayfair Academy inevitably becomes marriage material.

And no one knows that under the guise of a stuffy widow, she is a beautiful woman who has never been married. Although Adrian Hawke is a dashing and successful businessman, his scandalous birth makes him a less-than-ideal candidate for a husband. When he draws attention from one of Hester’s favorite students, the prim Mrs. Poitevant forcefully puts a stop to it—and falls victim to his charms herself. Adrian, meanwhile, is not fooled by the feisty widow’s facade. Intrigued, the clever rogue is determined to uncover what Hester is hiding in more ways . . . than one. Perfect for fans of the Bridgerton series! “With this sparkling romance between a highly regarded widow and a thoroughly charming rake, Becnel . . . breathes life into the rigid Regency-era romance genre. . . . Hester’s spirited personality and Adrian's devil-may-care attitude will appeal to a broad readership. Playful in tone and rich in character, this book is fun, breezy entertainment.” —Publishers Weekly “A real treat.” —Booklist

    Isolated monasteries nestling in the peaks, precipices and giddying gorges of the snow-capped Himalayas… The filth-encrusted and lice-infested hovels of the native people… It’s all a far cry from the genteel sophistication she’s left behind in Monte Carlo. But as always, Vivian Carrow’s as defiant as she’s beautiful – and, nursing a broken heart, she’s determined to accompany her father on a perilous mission to Tibet. Faced with a haughtily handsome and arrogant Captain whom she suspects is a murdering spy, a lecherous, drug-crazed Indian prince and gangs of murderous monks, that defiance is tested to its limits – indeed almost to the death. Will Vivian plunge to an icy death in a mountain crevasse? Or fall into love with the man she so hated.
