Summary

"'This prisoner deserves special treatment.' The hooded man looked over at the young man again." 
Elsdon Taylor, a prisoner accused of committing a terrible murder. Layle Smith, a torturer with a terrible past. Their meeting in the Eternal Dungeon appears certain to bring out the worst in both men. 
Yet neither man is quite what he appears. As the prisoner and his torturer begin to be drawn toward each other, the ripple effects of their meeting will have a powerful impact on other inhabitants of the Eternal Dungeon: Layle's faithful guard, struggling to contain his doubts. A younger guard determined to take any shortcuts necessary to ensure that his life follows the path he has already chosen. An old love from Layle's past, still sorrowing. And most of all, a prisoner who has not yet arrived at the Eternal Dungeon, but whose fate will depend on how Layle handles Elsdon Taylor . . . and on how Elsdon handles Layle Smith. 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards (within the "Eternal Dungeon" omnibus), this tale of love and adventure can be read on its own or as the first volume in The Eternal Dungeon, a speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. 
The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, The Eternal Dungeon, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    I thought becoming a widow less than two years after becoming a wife would be the most difficult thing I would ever face, but when my late husband's farm hands robbed me blind and left my ranch on the brink of disaster, I had to reconsider. I didn't know anything about running a ranch let alone bringing one back from impending doom. When my banker kindly referred a friend of his to help me turn things around, I gratefully took him up on his offer. From the moment Benjamin Cotter's dusty cowboy boots and well-worn Stetson set foot on the Triple T, I wanted him. It wasn't just the way he filled out his Wrangler's, either. He was everything I didn't know I needed.
    
     
    Ben
    
     
    I never thought of myself as the kind of guy that would step in to save a widow's ranch. Of course, Joanna Bascom wasn't your typical widow. A transplant to Wyoming, she didn't know a thing about running a ranch. She had backbone, though, and that goes a long way toward making up for not knowing the difference between a bull and a steer. When she asked me to help her save the Triple T, I tried to convince myself that it was out of the goodness of my heart and not because of the hardness in my jeans that I agreed. I found out soon enough that it wasn't just the ranch I was interested in saving. 
    
     
    Jo and Ben combine forces to save the Triple T ranch. Their passion for their project and each other soon boils over. Climb in the saddle and enjoy this short, sexy romp perfect for an afternoon read. Are you ready for a ride?

    A rogue ruined . . . 
    He is the Killer Duke, accused of murdering Mara Lowe on the eve of her wedding. With no memory of that fateful night, Temple has reigned over the darkest of London’s corners for twelve years, wealthy and powerful, but beyond redemption. Until one night, Mara resurfaces, offering the one thing he’s dreamed of . . . absolution. 
    A lady returned . . . 
    Mara planned never to return to the world from which she’d run, but when her brother falls deep into debt at Temple’s exclusive casino, she has no choice but to offer Temple a trade that ends in her returning to society and proving to the world what only she knows...that he is no killer. 
    A scandal revealed . . . 
    It’s a fine trade, until Temple realizes that the lady—and her past—are more than they seem. It will take every bit of his strength to resist the pull of this mysterious, maddening woman who seems willing to risk everything for honor . . . and to keep from putting himself on the line for love.
