Lord Lucas Stokehurst is captivated by the gentle grace and regal beauty of “Miss Karen Billings,” who appeared seemingly out of nowhere and now stands demurely before him. Enchanted, the gallant, haunted widower impetuously offers her a position as governess to his young daughter, taking the lady of mystery into his home. But “Miss Billings” has another name, Anastasia, and a dark past that pursues her still. Condemned for a crime she cannot remember, she barely escaped the gallows. And now she seeks shelter in the arms of a man devastated by tragedy, a man who must now defy society and the forces of vengeance to keep his lady safe and their bold new love alive.
PRINCE OF DREAMS
The most dangerous and desirable man in all of England, Nikolas burns to possess Emma Stokehurst, but the proud, headstrong beauty is promised to another. Still, there are no limits to how far the wealthy, bitter exile will go to win her exquisite hand – though owning Emma’s body, but not her love, will do nothing to fill the empty spaces in his heart. But Nikolas’s destiny awaits him elsewhere, as passion’s magic transports him to a different place – a land of splendor and romantic dreams. For only there can he experience true ecstasy in one remarkable woman’s tender touch – achingly familiar yet gloriously new – and learn, at last, to love.
