Summary

A sweet historical romance set in 1873. 
Helen Higby answers an ad for a mail-order bride, but finds out her groom is already married—and wanted by the law—after their wedding ceremony. Now stuck in Clear Creek, Kansas, with her four little girls, Helen needs a way to provide for her family. 
Ethan Paulson is in charge of the family hotel while his parents take an extended trip. Ethan’s fiancée, Sarah Wilerson, left him at the altar last summer and he’s had a hard time accepting her rejection—until a beautiful woman and her children take up residence in the Paulson Hotel. 
Helen had worked in a hotel in Pennsylvania before traveling to Kansas, so she helps Ethan organize and improve the offerings of the Paulson Hotel, while falling in love with him. 
Sparks fly when Mrs. Paulson, Ethan’s mother, returns to find changes, including a family making themselves at home in the hotel, and in Ethan’s heart. Can chaos and drama turn into love and a happy ending for everyone living in the Paulson Hotel?

    The pleasure of your company is requested at Warbury Park. Four lovely ladies will arrive… but only one can become a duchess. 
    James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Lust is prohibited and love is out of the question. 
    Four ladies. Three days. What could go wrong? 
    She is not like the others… 
    Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke’s proposal. All she must do is: 
    * Be the perfect English rose [Ha!] 
    * Breathe, smile, and curtsy in impossibly tight gowns [blast Lady Dorothea’s sylph-like figure] 
    * Charm and seduce a wild duke [without appearing to try] 
    * Keep said duke far, far from her heart [no matter how tempting] 
    When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything . . . including her heart.

    	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.

    	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!

    	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.

    The shocking second book in The Pleasure Wars series by USA Today Bestselling Historical Romance Author Jess Michaels 
    Her mother's madness and her father's and brother's irresponsibility have relegated Lady Portia to the life of a wallflower. The only shining light in her life is her best friend, Ava, who is suffering a rift with her own brother. Portia's quest to help takes her to the notorious Donville Masquerade in the hells, where-behind the safety of a mask-she witnesses shocking public acts of sin. And succumbs to the touch of Marquis Miles Weatherfield. Unfortunately, they're discovered. And now, tainted by scandal, she and Miles are destined for a marriage neither of them want. But Portia makes a bargain that raises even Miles's eyebrows. In return for saving her mother from the asylum, Portia will do anything Miles wants in bed. Shocked by his driving desire for Portia, Miles agrees.  
    As they explore every wicked desire, every forbidden act that pleases them, they discover something that goes far deeper than flesh. But the lies that brought them together could be the very wedge that drives them apart.
