    Lady Mélisande Compton, Countess of Wilmington in her own right, has never forgotten Lord Alessandro Orsini, the Italian rogue she met during her visit to Versailles. When the celebrated rake resurfaces in London, Mélisande seizes the opportunity and shamelessly proposes an affair for the Season with no strings attached. Five years ago, Alessandro met his perfect match in Mélisande. Though the fiercely independent lady has sworn off marriage, it doesn’t stop him from vowing to make her his wife. While seducing her body, Alessandro wages tender warfare on her heart’s defenses.

    Story

    Written well, believable characters, didn't really capture my imagination, hero wasn't really hero material, sex scenes too explicit, didn't involve my emotions. I love a book that makes me laugh and cry and feel things. Still, worth a listen.

    Orphaned and raised by her uncle, the feisty sixteen-year-old Chelynne resolves to show her gratitude by marrying the man of her uncle's choice. Bracing herself for a graying, sickly noble, the last man she expects for a husband is the dashing future Earl of Bryant, Chadwick Hawthorne - suddenly, being a loving wife doesn't seem too hard a task. But he spurns her affection and remains her husband only in name, never in deed. Tormented by unfinished business from his past and an uprising threatening his land, Chad resolves to keep his distance from everyone....

    Story

    Good plots and sympathetic characters, the king however sounded like a fool which he may have been but not appropriate for his station. More could have been made of Chelynne's age, It was hard to remember she was only 16.

    Story

    This could have been a good story but it seemed the author was trying to create an audience by using "course" language. I prefer my imagination stimulated more than my ears. The story could have stood on its own without the overly explicit language. Shame, a good story spoilt.

    The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-after. Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well. So she decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened.... Until the real earl appears.

Persuading the earl is another matter entirely. Edward has his future neatly mapped out. He hopes to wed his steadfast companion....

    Just when Leo, Baron Warhurst, thinks his family’s financial situation can’t get any worse, he discovers that his unwed sister is pregnant. The Warhurst estate is already crumbling thanks to Leo’s father’s numerous indiscretions, and unless Leo can prevent another scandal from erupting before he makes a fortuitous match with a wealthy heiress, his family will be ruined. Such are the dire straits that bring the ruthless young nobleman to the White Swan Inn, where he must suffer the indignity of asking a common seamstress for help spying on his sister’s lover. Yet Alice Croft is anything but common. She is low-born, yes, but also strong-willed, clever, confident, and bears a luminous beauty Leo cannot ignore. Inexorably drawn to her, he knows that even the rumor of a liaison between them could ruin his marriage prospects. But the harder he fights against her, the stronger their attraction grows—until Leo is forced to choose between the woman who stole his heart and the family that demands his honor. In this unforgettable follow-up to Her Secret Desire, Lord Warhurst’s turbulent love story unfolds with all the wit, passion, and drama that C. J. Archer’s growing legion of fans have come to expect.

    For years, Rafe Fletcher wandered the world, an assassin-for-hire and one of Europe’s most feared swordsmen. It’s a fitting life for a man who once beat his own brutish stepfather half to death, one of many sins for which he hopes to atone upon his return to London. Yet redemption proves elusive when he reunites with Lizzy Croft. A child when Rafe left, Lizzy remembers her dear friend’s brooding brother all too well. And though dismayed to now find herself drawn to his dark good looks, she hasn’t forgotten how dangerous he can be. She dare not trust him - until the Master of Revels is murdered and Lizzy becomes the prime suspect.
