Brock Stanton and Lily Mayweather were childhood sweethearts, but Lily went off to college and never returned, breaking Brock’s heart. She never intended to come back to Copper Creek, Texas, population three thousand, not for a visit, not unless she absolutely had to. The only reason she’d come back would be family. When her father nearly loses his life, Lily comes back to her hometown, intending to help her father get back on his feet.

Copper Creek has its share of distractions. Brock has matured to a gorgeous cowboy who runs his family’s ranch. He never forgot the girl who broke his heart, the gorgeous redheaded Lily with big town dreams that didn’t include him.

When Brock runs in to Lily, their attraction for each other explodes. Neither wants to let the other go, despite the stresses in their worlds. Lily owns her own business back East, while Brock is tied to his family ranch. Love may not be enough for her and Brock to manage a long-distance relationship, no matter how much their lust burns. It hadn’t worked before, why should they expect it to work now. Older and wiser doesn’t cut the distance thousands of miles will put between them.

Will salvation come from an unexpected place? Will Lily or Brock have to sacrifice their businesses and professional dreams or risk losing each other? Desire and passion make them take chances, and churn up the small town gossip mill that could ruin everything, most especially their renewed bond.

Lady Lilibeth Merlyn Grant has been suffering through her stifling existence on her father’s estate in Ulwell, England, close to the sea but far from anything of interest. The youngest of Lord Giles Grant’s five daughters, Lili finds herself longing for anything but the dreadful marriage that seems to sit on her unpromising horizon. Her parents have conspired to wed her to the sweet but painfully dull Duke Elsden Lovell of Corfe Castle, whose inheritance amounts to lands that hardly offer a change of scenery, being a scant few hours’ journey away.

All seems lost until a foreigner stumbles onto the estate one day, dazed and mumbling in an unmistakable French accent. Wary and reluctant, Lord Giles offers this stranger, a certain Monsieur Marcel Comtois, a place to stay despite all the whispers amongst the servants that the man is a rogue and worse, a spy for his countrymen.

But Lili is not prepared for the dazzling devil that she bumbles into in her efforts to see the so-called rogue for herself. After a chance encounter Lili finds herself wondering about this strange man that she knows so little about… and wondering if she can get a grip on herself before she falls head over heels. Is he really a spy? Or an unfortunate traveler, just as he claims? And how can she ever reconcile herself to the fact that the man she is falling in love with will part in just a few days’ time, likely never to be seen in Ulwell again?

Smart, independent, and perhaps just a bit headstrong, June Brose never imagined that, after a promising college career brimming with intellectual potential, she would end up working at the branch of her local library in a quaint little New England town. She had always hoped for something a little more adventurous, but it seems that shelving and sorting are all that are in the cards for her.

That is, until she is swept away one day, not only to another place but to another time. Her whale watching voyage runs into a strange and entirely unexpected storm; the weather turns violent, and there is little the poor captain can do to steer their little schooner to safe harbor. The ship capsizes, and a drowning June can only hope that she will live through the ordeal.

The next thing she knows June is coughing up brine, trying to drag herself to her feet on the deck of an unfamiliar—but thankfully not capsized—ship. To her utter shock, she finds herself entirely surrounded by what appear to be real life Vikings, who are all staring at her as if she is a ghost. Calder Brandt, the stalwart and handsomely alluring leader of these fierce Vikings, seems to be willing to help his new charge. But can he be trusted? Does he even believe her strange and improbable tale? Will June ever find her way home? And with the way she is falling for Calder, will she even want to return?

Wes Wright is a reformed criminal-turned-wannabe-rancher who has decided to walk the straight and narrow after a brush with the law in his younger days. A reserved man with a painful past, he comes off as more than cold to his mail order bride-to-be, Johanna Smith, who is also haunted by a past that she is trying to escape.

Originally from New York, Johanna’s dysfunctional family has left her disillusioned with the idea of love. With a brother in jail and few other options, she decides to move on a whim to Oregon to become a stranger’s wife, hoping that it will prove to be at least a better choice than remaining in her uncomfortable home situation.

Her arrival at Wes’ less than ideal homestead is not promising at first. However, Johanna is an independent woman determined to see this venture through to the very end, even if that means that she will have to suffer through years and years of uncomfortable silence with Wes. But will she find the rugged pioneer life in uncharted Oregon too hard for her liking? Will life with her brusque, distant new husband prove to be a new but equal misery to the life she shared with her parents in New York? Or is there a tender heart hidden beneath his rough edges that can make happiness possible?

The picture of demure elegance, Lady Corinna Field is renowned among the ton for her great kindness and impeccable moral character.

Using the secret knowledge that he garners from a peek at his friend's closely held journals, he pulls out all the stops to seduce her--realizing her most forbidden fantasies and showing her the romance of a lifetime in the process.

Gorgeous and wealthy beyond the wildest dreams of any society maiden, Lord Ethan Cole is nonetheless an outcast of London society; one exiled to Paris in the wake of widespread rumors of a scandalous past affair with a married woman. Yet now the bold bachelor is back, seemingly unashamed of his past, and all set to take London by storm; making his first appearance at a grand cotillion where he is not exactly welcomed with open arms.

...except, that is, by Emma Gold. An aspiring author and rebellious woman who resists the empty pageantry of high society, she attends societal events only to do research for the stories that she hopes will form the basis of her life’s work. And although she seeks no husband or suitor at that evening’s cotillion, she nonetheless is intrigued by the man known throughout London as the Scandalous Duke; but only for purposes of research, of course. Surely she could share a dance, a tea, or even something more with this walking mystery of a man without falling madly in love with him—could she not?

And while she would like to model her next literary hero after this handsome, charming gent, he in turn is determined to become the real-life hero of her next grand romance. He realizes that he has met his match in the funny, bright, spirited Emma. Can she resist the charms of the scandalous duke?
