Summary

“Want it all? Read Ann Major.” –New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts  
When saying goodbye is impossible. 
Yesterday…   Eva Martin had had a weakness for bad boys 
Eight years ago, Evangeline had walked away from her neighbor, the dangerously sensual Raoul Girouard and the passion they’d shared, to please her wealthy New Orleans family. Even after she learned of his treachery and tragic death in Africa she couldn’t stop loving him.   
Today…  Eva is determined to close the door on the past. 
When Raoul walks back into her life calling himself Nicholas Jones, he’s the last man she wants to trust with her heart. Unfortunately, he’s a high-stakes player in a deadly game of power and intrigue and his enemy is using Eva as a bargaining chip. 
When Nicholas abducts her to save her, she fights him every step of the way. But when the danger is past, can she say goodbye again to the one man she’s always loved?

Arriving at the Capital City of Slavonia to meet her Royal suitor, she is horrified by his rudeness and contempt for his people – even as they take Giona to their hearts.

    The Marquis of Havingham visits his mother in Harrogate to tell her he intends to marry Lady Beryl Fern, the most acclaimed beauty in the Prince Regent’s circle. This should be the happiest day of his life – he is handsome, fabulously wealthy and now about to be a bridegroom. There is only one cloud on the horizon – he is not in love. 
    Convinced that true love is not worth the heartache, and that marriage to the ‘Incomparable’ Lady Beryl, will work because of their shared interests and position amongst the Beau Monde, only his mother is worried that he may be making a terrible mistake.
     For Torilla, the daughter of a clergyman working in the deprived mining village of Barrowfield, the news of the wedding means travelling South to be her cousin, Lady Beryl’s, bridesmaid. Torilla is excited, not only about the wedding, but also the opportunity to return to the genteel parish she and her father left after the tragic death of her mother. For a young woman who has spent time amongst the grime and squalor of the mines, the lavish preparations and generosity of her cousin seem at times almost overwhelming.
     But as the wedding draws ever nearer Torilla cannot help wondering how attached the betrothed couple really are to each other. Their relationship is certainly nothing like the perfect soul mates that the cousins used to dream of. Afraid to question her cousin, Torilla unknowingly shares the same concerns as the Marquis’ mother. Can a marriage really work that is based only on convenience? 
    And as Torilla gets to know the Marquis better she becomes even more convinced that this is not a match made in heaven. But will anyone be brave enough to say something? With her feelings in turmoil and filled with concern for the future happiness of all, Torilla certainly hopes so.

    Julia Quinn says that the wonderfully sensuous historical romance novels of New York Times bestseller Gaelen Foley are “always fabulous”—and any reader who feels she needs proof of that should look no further than My Scandalous Viscount. Once again, Gaelen leads us behind the closed doors of Regency London’s mysterious Inferno Club, where the dashing, aristocratic members, having defeated England’s enemies, now face their greatest challenge: marriage! In My Scandalous Viscount, the rogue nobleman of the title is discovered in a compromising position with a ravishing miss—a notorious “busybody,” or rather “lady of information,” as she prefers to be called—and must defend her honor with a wedding proposal. Romance fans simply adore a good “marriage of convenience” story, and My Scandalous Viscount is a great one, filled with kind of wit, surprise, and sensuality that fans of Mary Jo Putney and Amanda Quick will cherish.

    Taylor Southerland is about to quit. Again. Architectural restoration is the most recent in a long line of careers that don’t fit. She wants something to feel passionate about and worries her inevitable job description might begin and end as someone’s trophy wife. Before she can figure out her next move, she has to finish the job she was hired for, which means finding a way to work with the fast talking Yankee responsible for the metal work, who seems intent on planting his sexy broad shoulders and tattooed biceps in her path. 
    Welder and Jersey native, Matthew Thorne has enough on his plate completing the restoration work on his latest project. The last thing he needs is a spoiled Southern belle sticking her nose in his business.  He just wants to finish the work he was hired to do, so he can get back on his bike and move on to the next job, especially when she’s a complication he doesn’t need. She might be smart, funny and sexy, but she’s also a major distraction – and distractions and blowtorches are a bad combination. 
    Taylor thinks he’s dangerous and Matthew’s sure she’s trouble, but it doesn’t stop things from heating up between them. With sparks flying, can they see past their misconceptions to find the truth buried under the rubble or are the biker and the belle destined to stay lost to each other?

    Devon St John has never had a problem in his life—until now. Born to wealth and privilege, surrounded by a warm and loving family, he has pursued a life of leisure, chasing the most beautiful women London has to offer.

So resolved, he heads to his friend’s Scottish castle, unaware that fate is already hard at work.

Ever since she ran off at the tender age of twelve to become an apprentice to a master of stained glass, Melody has been deplorably independent and wild. When Devon arrives at Strathmore Castle, he is taken aback by the rude, overbearing, illegitimate Scotswoman who refuses even to pretend to possess any feminine wiles. But Devon is determined to teach the strong-willed Melody a lesson in love ...
