Redeeming the Marquess (His Majesty’s Hounds)

Dreamstone Publishing
Print | eBook
Sweet Historical

A determined Lady, an handsome, yet impoverished Marquess, a flock of suitors, a difficult inheritance, a deception revealed, an unexpected love.

Lady Georgiana Branley, younger daughter of Baron Tillingford, has changed since her father’s death. She has come to terms with the fact that another man now carries what was her father’s title, and has dedicated herself to learning as much about managing her estates as possible. There is just one thing stopping her from being completely happy. Her father’s will specified that, until she marries, her estates will be held in trust for her by her sister’s husband to be – The Duke of Rotherhithe. Georgiana has no interest in marrying some society fop. She just wants to manage her estates. But the Duke promised her father that he would see her wed, and wed well – and he intends to make that happen. At the House party which is held before the Duke and Cordelia’s wedding, all Georgiana wants to do is leave – until she meets the Marquess of Dartworth – who is unlike any other man of the ton that she has met.

Oliver Kentworthy, Marquess of Dartworth, inherited a title, run down estates, and a large collection of debt. Returning from a few years of living in the Americas, Oliver sees the ton with new eyes – and is not impressed. He is only at the Duke’s house party because of a promise the Duke made to his father. The members of the ton make their disapproval of the almost paupered young peer very unpleasantly obvious – the only thing that makes Oliver want to stay is Lady Georgiana…

Can Lady Georgiana get her way, and choose the path of her own life? Can Oliver overcome the terrible heritage he has been left, and be accepted by society? Will these two, who feel out of place amongst the ton, find happiness together, or will others’ prejudice drive them apart.

Miss Hastings’ Excellent London Adventure (Brazen Brides)

Harper & Appleton
Print | eBook
Historical Sensual (mild)

Having never left Upper Barrington in her twenty years, orphan Miss Emma Hastings is overjoyed when the uncle she’s never met invites her to come live with him in London. Everything about living in the Capital lures her. She doesn’t even mind sharing her seat in the mail coach with a gargantuan man whose belly rests on his lap. Even when her uncle fails to meet her at the posting inn in London, she’s too exhilarated over the city’s sights and sounds to be worried. After many hours pass and her uncle does not collect her, she determines to lug her trunk behind her as she struggles through London’s streets at night to find her uncle’s home.

Spurned by his mistress and vowing to never love again, Adam Birmingham, whose family is the richest in Britain, decides to get very drunk. As he’s staggering home, he takes pity on a very small young lady who’s lugging a very large trunk behind her. In the rain. Her destination is the home of his next-door neighbor, but no one answers the bell. Adam is compelled to ask the young woman to spend the night at his home. Promptly after showing her the chamber in which she’ll sleep, Adam passes out on her chaise. It’s not until the following morning he remembers that the lady’s uncle has died.

When Adam learns that Emma cannot return to Upper Barrington and that she has nowhere to go, he offers marriage to the hysterical lady. His heart is so shattered, he will never love again. Why not make this helpless orphan happy? Soon after they wed, they become convinced that someone has forged her uncle’s will–and likely murdered her uncle. Their resolve to bring the murderer to justice jeopardizes Emma’s life. Knowing she’s in danger brings out Adam’s protective instincts–and something far deeper, something he’d thought to never feel again. . .

After her much older husband dies—leaving her his fortune—Charlotte Blakemore finds herself at the mercy of her stepson, who vows to contest the will and destroy her life. With nowhere to turn and no one to help her, she embarks on an elaborate ruse—only to find herself stranded on the way to London . . .

More than twenty years in the West Indies have hardened Edward Cary, but not enough to abandon a helpless woman at a roadside inn—especially one as disarmingly beautiful as Charlotte. He takes her with him to the Gloucestershire estate he is determined to restore, though he is suspicious of every word that falls from her distractingly lush lips.

As far as Charlotte knows, Edward is nothing more than a steward, and there’s no reason to reveal his noble birth until he can right his father’s wrongs. Acting as husband and wife will keep people in the village from asking questions that neither Charlotte nor Edward are willing to answer. But the game they’re each determined to play has rules that beg to be broken, when the passion between them threatens to uncover the truth—for better or worse . . .
