    Lady Alice approached the fearsome Warrior who had swept into Lingwood Manor like a storm. Dark and forbidding, with hair as black as midnight and eyes of molten amber, Hugh the Relentless seemed aptly named. Yet to Alice, adept at driving off suitors and handling her insufferable relatives, Sir Hugh was not someone to dread, but the answer to her dreams. He had come for the mysterious green crystal, and would be greatly displeased to learn that it was no longer in her possession. But Alice was certain Sir Hugh could be coaxed into a deal that would benefit them both. In return for a dowry large enough to free Alice and her brother from the grasp of their conniving uncle, she would lend her powers of detection to Sir Hugh's knightly skills and together they would recover his treasured stone.With a tongue as sharp as a dagger, the flame-haired Alice filled Hugh with fury...and a growing fascination. He accepted her terms, with one alteration: Alice must agree to a temporary betrothal and spend the winter in Hugh's great stone fortress, Scarcliffe Keep.The bargain is struck and the adventure begins.

    Beatrice Poole may be a vicar's daughter, but that doesn't mean she's a stranger to the darker passions. Indeed, she knows enough about gothic terrors to have carved out a highly successful career penning "horrid novels." But now the talented authoress finds herself in the midst of an ominous adventure that rivals anything she's ever written.Her beloved Uncle Reggie is dead, Beatrice suspects that he was murdered - all because of his keen interest in a fabled treasure that may not even exist. Rumors abound that the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite, said to give their possessor the most unnatural powers, have surfaced in London. Yet Beatrice needs more than rumors to uncover the truth. That's why she's braved the wilds of Devon to seek out a leading authority on antiquities and ancient legends: The famously eccentric, unquestionably reclusive, possibly dangerous Earl of Monkcrest, a man believed to dabble in the supernatural.But bearding the Mad Monk of Monkcrest in his den and dangling the possibility of uncovering a fabulous artifact before him may be the biggest mistake of Beatrice's life. For suddenly, she finds herself joined in an uneasy alliance with a man who is every bit as fascinating as one of the heroes in her novels.

    Imogen Waterstone has always prided herself on being a thoroughly independent young woman. But now she needed a man: one with an implacable will and nerves of iron. That's why she invited Matthias Marshall, the infamous explorer and Earl of Colchester, to her home in Upper Stickleford. Her scheme was simple, really: She would let it be known that when she inherited her uncle's collection of antiquities, she would also inherit a map to a fabulous ancient treasure. Certain that her enemy would risk financial ruin in pursuit of the artifact, Imogen expected Colchester to set himself up as the ruthless lord's rival and pretend to seduce her so that he, too, could get his hands on her map. In all of her pleading, Imogen never anticipated Colchester's reaction to her request or her own electrifying response to him. With his powerful build and the swath of silver in his dark hair, Matthias was more than magnificent. And as he entered her charade, Imogen found herself in the thrall of true passion at last.
