    Newly widowed and desperate to protect her estate and beloved servants from her malevolent brother-in-law, Martha Russell conceives a daring plan. Or rather, a daring plan to conceive. After all, if she has an heir on the way, her future will be secured. Forsaking all she knows of propriety, Martha approaches her neighbor, a London exile with a wicked reputation, and offers a strictly business proposition: a month of illicit interludes... for a fee.

    Would you try another book from Cecilia Grant and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Probably not.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Cecilia Grant? Why or why not?

    She was too detailed on the subject of farming and agriculture and it became soooo boring!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    Maybe, but not anytime soon.

    Wealthy and roguish, Demon Cynster is perfectly content without love. Having witnessed his Cynster brethren driven to their knees by women, he knows all too well what the power of love can do to a man. But he never banked on meeting Felicity Parteger, a luscious, curvy beauty in desperate need of help. Could this tempting woman be the one?

    >The New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Laurens has created her most provocative love story - and amazing hero - to date. Michael Anstruther-Wetherby is a man destined for power. But Michael lacks the single most important element of success: a wife. Michael searches for his ideal bride - a gently bred, malleable young lady (preferably one with a political background). He discovers such a paragon, but finds a formidable obstacle in his path - the young lady's beautiful, strong minded aunt.

    There were several humerous points and actually made me laugh outloud.

    Amid the carnage of war, he commandeers far more than just her home. Widowed plantation owner Emaline McDaniels has struggled to hold on to her late husband's dreams. Despite the responsibilities resting on her slender shoulders, she'll not let anyone wrest away what's left of her way of life-particularly a Yankee officer who wants to set up winter camp on her land. With a defiance born of desperation, she defends her home as though it were the child she never; and no mother gives up her child without a fight.

    Has No Greater Glory turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I was actually looking forward to something other than English and Scottish Lords and Ladies or Westerns. But was really disappointed.

    Lady Madeline Matthews would rather shame herself than sacrifice her freedom – which is why, to avoid a marriage to an aging, lecherous lord, she seeks out the company of Logan Scott. A torrid affair with the notorious womanizer would surely condemn her in the eyes of good society.Though a legend in the bedchamber, Logan is, in truth, an intensely private man tormented by past betrayals. Now a forward little minx is disrupting his life with her vibrant charm and unspoiled beauty, a high-spirited enchantress completely at sea in London’s sophisticated whirl.
