The Georgian Rebel Series, Book 1 Stranded in the heart of England after Bonnie Prince Charlie's hasty retreat, highlander Fraser Lachlan has sworn to stay by his injured friend's side. But when a kindly English family takes Jack in to be cared for by the governess and healer at their Derbyshire estate, Fraser can only watch helplessly. It's just a matter of time before Jack is turned over to the Crown as a traitor, but Fraser's attempt to rescue his friend is met with the blunt end of a candlestick. Martha Wantage wears every reason she hates the Scots on her body-in the scars from a violent, fiery attack that killed her family. Now she has not only one unconscious Jacobite rebel at her mercy, but two. And she can't resist cursing her enemy with the "kiss of hate." 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.

Can a beautiful spinster trust love again? Especially with the rogue who broke her heart the first time? Olivia Kingsley didn’t expect to be swept off her feet and receive a marriage proposal two weeks into her first Season. 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. Though this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone.

"Say naught. Else you shall be next." These are the words that leave a six-year-old Highland lass without a voice, and without memory of that terrible day her family's caravan was overtaken and her parents were slain. 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. Highland Laird, Robert MacVie, desperately plots to ensnare his heiress lover into marriage in order to gain her dowry and pay his King the debt his late father owed, thus saving his clan from division and ruin. But a last minute switch changes the course of his life--and his heart--forever. When their passionate interlude is discovered by her unctuous, devious uncle, nothing will do but that Robert wed the impoverished Morgana instead. At first, they both resist. He, for the sake of his clan. She, for the sake of her unrequited love. But they quickly discover that resistance is futile. And a boon by the King soon lessens Robert's debt. Now, as their desire for each other grows, as Morgana's voice begins to return only in song, as their hearts bond, a legacy of jealousy and greed entraps Morgana in a furious death plot--and only her warrior-knight husband can save her!
