Katherine Howe's first marriage was one of dreary duty. Now that she's being pressured to marry her late husband's heir, she's desperate for a better option. Gerard de Lacey, with his sinful good looks, charming manner, and looming scandal, fits her needs perfectly. The fact that she's nursed a secret affection for him only makes it better - and worse.

"Crisp, witty writing and excellent narration"
A bargain that was all business - and pure passion. Neither wealth nor beauty will help Lady Francesca Gordon win custody of her young niece Georgina, saving the girl from a cruel stepmother. She needs London's top solicitor for that. But when Edward de Lacey, son of the powerful Duke of Durham, hires away the one man who can do the job, Francesca decides Edward himself must champion her case - if only she can melt the dashing lord's stony heart. Edward has reason to be guarded, though. London's tabloids have just exposed a secret that could ruin his entire family.
"Delicious story and narrator"
Joan Bennet has endured four Seasons without a single suitor or serious flirtation, let alone a marriage proposal. She's had just about enough of being a respectable wallflower and is giving serious thought to embarking on a life of sin, or at least lascivious adventure like the ones described in a popular scandalous book. When she meets her brother's favorite drinking mate, Viscount Burke, it seems her hopes of adventure might be answered . . .
"SWEET WITH A BIT OF NAUGHTY :-)"
Penelope Weston does not like Benedict Lennox, Lord Atherton. He may be the suave and charming heir to an earl as well as the most handsome man on earth, but she can't forget how he abandoned a friend in need - nor how he once courted her sister, Abigail. He's the last man she would ever marry. If only she didn't feel so attracted to the arrogant scoundrel....
"Wanted: more time with this wonderful series!"
Olivia Townsend is in trouble and out of options. Pursued by a dangerous man in search of a lost treasure she doesn't possess, she's got only two things in her favor: her late husband's diary - which she was never meant to see - and the man who was her first and only love. Losing him broke her heart, though she's been careful to hide it for the last 10 years. But when he comes to her aid and vows to stand by her, no matter what, she can't help but hope that things will be different for them this time.
Abigail Weston has everything: beauty, wit, and one of the largest dowries in England. Her parents hope she'll wed an earl. Abigail hopes for a man who wants her desperately and passionately. But the money seems to blind every man she meets-except one. Sebastian Vane has nothing. He came home from war with a shattered leg to find his father mad and his inheritance gone. He's not a fit suitor for anyone, let alone an heiress.
Destined to be a duke, Charles de Lacey, Lord Gresham, has led a life of decadent pleasure, free of any care for propriety or responsibility. It comes as a terrible shock to learn that he might be stripped of everything, thanks to his father's scandalous past. He has no choice but to find the blackmailer who would ruin him - and his only link to the villain is a woman who may be part of the plot. To save his fortune and title, Charles vows to stop at nothing - in fact, he's all too eager to unravel the beautiful, tart-tongued Tessa Neville.
"What a great series; listen to all three books!"
