The USA Today–bestselling author launches a dazzling Regency trilogy with a “fast-paced” novel “filled with tension, danger, and adventure” (Rendezvous). Zoë Devereux is a fearless seventeen-year-old. Though disguised as a schoolgirl, when she is spirited out of France by Rolfe Brockford, marquess of Rivard, her life changes forever. Posing as a Revolutionary, Rolfe is on a mission to rescue innocents from the bloody horrors of the guillotine. Once in London, Rolfe finds himself unwilling to abandon the waifish girl and shocks polite society by taking her as his bride—in name only. What began as a marriage of convenience quickly grows into something altogether different. But Rolfe and Zoë face countless challenges—from political intrigue to their own pride, jealousy, and fiercely guarded secrets. Now, as the strife in Europe hits its peak, two stubborn hearts must make the ultimate alliance. “I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find.” —Mary Balogh, New York Times–bestselling author of the Westcott Novels
A woman is captive to her own desire in this sizzling Regency romance from the USA Today–bestselling author of Highland Fire. Eleven years ago, Cam Colburne, Duke of Dyson, witnessed the unspeakable horrors of mob hysteria in a French prison as he watched his family condemned to death by the actions of an innocent young girl, the daughter of a French diplomat. Now, a decade later, Cam’s moment of retribution has come. Lovely Gabrielle de Brienne is now his prisoner, held for ransom at Cornwall castle. The product of a most unconventional education, Gabrielle is now more hoyden than lady. Her powerful captor doesn’t frighten her with his threats. But, his commanding kiss sends shivers of desire through her body. The tenderness beneath his pride and arrogance, however, warns her that she is far too vulnerable. In the dark of night, she longs to understand the secret her enigmatic captor hides behind his mask of indifference. But by day, she plots her escape, fearing her heart and her will to resist him will soon be lost forever. “A joy to read!” —RT Book Reviews “I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find.” —Mary Balogh, New York Times–bestselling author

Maggie, a National Park Ranger, is back at the Castle – an ancient Native American pueblo carved into the face of a limestone cliff in Arizona. Maggie, who suffers from depression, has been through several traumas: the gang rape she suffered while in the Coast Guard, the sudden death of her ten-year-old son, and a suicide attempt. As part of her therapy Maggie volunteers at the local rape crisis clinic.
Maggie has several men in her life. The baker, newcomer Jim Casey, always greets her with a warm smile and fills pink boxes with sweet delicacies. Brett Collins, a scuba diver, is doing scientific studies in Montezuma Well, a dangerous cylindrical depression that houses a deep spring filled with strange creatures found nowhere else on Earth. Then there’s Dave, with whom she’s had a one-night stand, and her new boss Glen.
One of these men is a serial rapist, and Maggie is his next target.
Things had been bad enough for the inspiring and beautiful young Helga Wensley when her much-loved father died some five years ago, leaving her and her mother in penury.
Recently her ailing mother too has passed away, which means that her stepfather, Sir Hector Preston, is now her Guardian. To make matters worse he promises her hand in marriage to a cruel and uncouth man called Bernard Howell, a Fate that she considers worse than dying.
As her mother suggested soon before her death, Helga goes for help to her estranged Aunt Millicent, a glamorous actress from the notorious Gaiety Theatre – and her life changes forever.
Putting herself forward for a 'role' paying her one thousand pounds in which she pretends to be the fiancée of the dashing Hugo, Duke of Rocklington, Helga finds herself with the most sought-after bachelor in the whole of the Social world at his fabulous country seat, Rock Castle.
And, despite Aunt Millicent's firm instructions not to fall in love with the Duke, Helga is smitten and finds that playing the part of the lovestruck fiancée requires no acting at all.
But all that changes when by chance Helga again meets the dreaded Bernard Howell, who pursues her brandishing his horse whip and she races back to Rock Castle to the Duke to save her –
A tale of rags to riches – and above all romance!
From a London gentleman's club he can ill-afford to a grand highland castle … From near bankruptcy to fabulous wealth, handsome 'man about town' Talbot Marsham's life changes forever when he inherits the title Earl of Cairnloch – as well as the castle and clan chieftainship that go with it.
With the beautiful young Tara at his side, he assumes his throne and faces a clan bristling with suspicion of the English and then, on the castle's slippery roof, a crazed, knife-wielding cousin consumed with hate. And just as he faces losing his life, he loses his heart – forever.
