For the Love of a Pirate

He's searching for a perfect bride...Constantine, Lord Wylde, is a gentleman beyond reproach. Now it's time for him to find a suitable gentlewoman to wed-a well-bred, well-behaved lady, as proper as . . . well, Constantine himself. But his plans are shattered when a fierce, aging pirate invades his home with shocking news: Constantine is already engaged . . . to the brigand's lovely granddaughter, Lisabeth!

Wildly independent Lisabeth, however, has no desire for marriage-certainly not to a straightlaced nobleman bound to her by some long-ago promise . . . even if she's tantalized by the sensuality he can't quite disguise.

But how does a staid gentleman win the heart of a bewitching pirate?

Alas, My Love

Passion rarely plays by society's rules...

He was a penniless street urchin who, through sheer will and courage, became a man of means. Yet wealth, charm and good looks will not gain Amyas St. Ives entry into the ton's inner circle. For that he needs a proper wellborn bride -- not the enchanting miss who has lately stolen his heart.

Amber also knows little of her past before she was taken in as ward of a respectable family. Though the gentleman is courting her adoptive sister, Amber can feel his eyes constantly on her. And when his lips meet hers, she is nearly overcome with a desire to melt into his embrace. But the secrets that shadow their histories make a union between them impossible -- unless they dare seek a truth that could either destroy their dreams or finally sweep away the barriers to their passion.

The Return of the Earl

Passion Comes Home

After fifteen years in cruel exile, Christian has finally returned to England to claim his rightful title. The new Earl of Egremont was a mere child when he was banished. Lovely and charming Julianne Lowell, who knew him then, must now determine if this suave and handsome mystery man is who he claims to be.

But why would she not remember those eyes that sparkle like flawless gems? Christian is like no man she has ever met - elegant and well-bred, but secretive and quite possibly dangerous, and seething with a sensual fire that steals her breath away. To trust this dashing stranger could place Julianne in grave peril if he is, in fact, playing a game of deception. But with her heart leaping madly at his slightest touch, how can she deny Christian the love and passion they both fervently desire?
