Historical

Seductively Yours by Laura Clarke

Ruth West - Wednesday, September 13, 2017

When Lady Viola is left at the altar, she feels it is a dream come true. After all, when she turns twenty-one she’ll have an inheritance of her own and will be able to move away from her parents. But the disaster of her engagement doesn’t stop her mother from trying to push her into marriage.

In an effort to thwart her parents’ plans, Viola proposes a scheme to Lord Byron, the fourth son of a duke: act like he is her suitor for six months and she will give him her virtue at the end. But Byron has other ideas. If he is to take part in her plan, he wants to play with her body before the six months are out. After all, there are many things they can do that will keep her virtue intact, and he has many ideas to keep them occupied while they wait for her birthday.

But, as they say, the best laid plans sometimes go awry, and things don’t always turn out as planned. Will Viola and Byron be able to fool everyone with their false courting? Will their arrangement encourage their feelings for each other to grow? Are they both ready to confront and accept any changes in feelings if they occur?

The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

Ruth West - Thursday, September 07, 2017

When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:

- They will be husband and wife by night only.

- No lights, no kissing.

- No questions about his battle scars.

- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:

- They will have dinner together every evening.

- With conversation.

- And unlimited teasing.

- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…
