Publisher Comments:

The New York Times bestselling author of the “delightfully clever...exceptionally entertaining” (Booklist) Bridal Pleasures novels beguiles readers once again with a new series of sensual intrigue and exquisite surprises....

Disgraced by her past employer, young governess Kate Walcott owes her loyalty to the only woman willing to hire her—the sought-after courtesan Mrs. Georgette Lawson. Georgette entrusts Kate with the care of her unruly children—and the writing of her shocking memoirs, which detail her affairs with famous gentlemen, including the rakehell who promised to marry her, then ruined her.

Sir Colin Boscastle intended to keep his promise to Georgette--until his father was murdered. Thirteen years of chasing vengeance pass before he returns to find Georgette sleeping in his enemy’s bed. Revenge has destroyed their romance, but the two former lovers agree to set a trap to restore Colin’s honor.

Caught in this deadly game, Kate struggles to resist Colin’s virile charm. She knows he is a born heartbreaker and unreliable rogue. Should she believe him when he whispers that, for her, he will change his sinful ways?

Review:

"Hunter returns to the Boscastle family (The Duchess Diaries) by locating a long-lost black sheep, Sir Colin Boscastle. Colin inserts himself into the household of his former lover, Georgette, now a well-known courtesan, to seek revenge on a vile man who poisoned Colin's father and is currently supporting Georgette's lavish lifestyle. To Colin's surprise, he discovers it is not Georgette with whom he sparks, but rather her children's governess, Kate Walcott. Kate has spent years painstakingly drafting Georgette's soon-to-be-published memoirs, so she knows all about Colin's rakish reputation and attempts to maintain a proper distance rather than giving in to her attraction. This engaging Regency enjoys swift action and amusing scenes — particularly Kate's efforts to direct home theater starring Georgette's staff — but Colin's rationale for spending 13 years seeking his enemy is convoluted and improbable, and occasional purple prose ('His phallus looked like polished wood') distracts rather than enhancing this lightweight romantic mystery."

Synopsis:

The Duke of Gravenhurst, the notorious author of dark romances, is accused of corrupting the morals of the public. But among his most devoted fans is the well-born Lily Boscastle, who seeks employment as the duke's personal housekeeper. Only then does she discover scandalous secrets about the man that she never could have imagined.

Synopsis:

Violet Knowlton is betrothed to the sensible, if tedious, Sir Godfrey Maitland. When Godfrey escorts her to a fencing demonstration, she looks forward to the adventurous diversion, but everything changes when she realizes the swordsman displaying his skill-and dashing good looks- is none other than her childhood friend Kit.

Soon the flames of their forbidden past ignite into a passion neither can refuse. Although Violet has been promised to another, Kit remains her first and only love. He vows he will possess her, no matter what stands in his way...
