That kiss unleashes a storm of passion that rages quickly out of control. But with the legacy of Martha's scars weighing heavy on her mind, and Fraser's duty calling him to battle at Culloden, it may be too late to explore whether theirs is a desire born of hate...or love. Warning: Contains a very sexy, masterful highlander and a demure, but defiant, governess who discovers the hard-very hard-way exactly what a Scotsman keeps under his kilt.

However, one delicious dance with Allen Wimpleton, heir to a viscountcy, and her future is sealed. Or so she thinks until her eccentric father suddenly announces he’s moving the family to the Caribbean for a year. Knowing her father will likely refuse his offer for Olivia’s hand, Allen begs her to elope. Having recently lost her mother, and worried her father is ailing too—which he insists remain a secret—she refuses. Distraught at her leaving, and unaware of her father’s ill-health, Allen doubts her love for him and foolishly demands she choose—him or her father. Heartbroken at Allen's callousness, but thankful he’s revealed his true nature before they married, Olivia turns her back on their love. The year becomes three, enough time for her broken heart to heal, and after her father dies, Olivia returns to England. Coming face to face with Allen at a ball, she realizes she never purged him from her heart. But can they overcome their pasts and old wounds to find love again? Or has Allen found another? Read the first book in the Waltz with a Rogue historical Regency romance series for a rousing, emotional, and romantic adventure you can't put down.

Now, thirteen years later, fresh from the nunnery where she was taken after the attack, Highland Lady, Morgana Cambel, harbors only one wish: To have one night of ecstasy with the man of her dreams--her worldly, beautiful cousin's sometime lover--Robert MacVie. So, when she is offered such a chance--a secret switch--she determines to take it.

However, though he had escaped, his brother, Vincent; friend, Jason; and the rest of his unit had been retaken. Forced back to England to recover, Richard is determined to use that time to force the government to garner their forces to search all of Egypt if necessary for his brothers-at arms still lost in the desert. He wanted – no, needed! – to spend each waking moment finding the help he needed and nothing was going to make him lose focus on that goal. That was until he ran into an angelic face from his past. One Lady Abygail Merrill. Abby had once been a brash, bossy tomboy who trailed along after him as a child. He had treated her as a friend, as yet another younger brother, but the lovely sophisticated woman he found in her place stirred anything but brotherly feelings. Richard finds in Abby a welcome haven against the storm of disappointment raging around him. A sympathetic ear and a comforting embrace. It becomes too easy to lose himself in her welcoming arms. But like him, Abby has her own demons to overcome before she can be free to love him.

However, Richard’s return has roused in Abby possibilities she thought long dead. All the hopes and fantasies that she’d held for most of her life are suddenly alive once more with promise. Richard genuine admiration recalls Abby to the girl she was once was and guides her back to the woman she was meant to be. Abby would do anything for the man she has long loved and knows that if she wants a life of her dreams with Richard, she must first help free him from the past. But once he is free to love her, will there be a future left for them to share?
