Can beauty tame the beast when they both face disgrace? Jago Tremayne feels responsible for his part in ruining the debut of the lovely Rowena Penrose. He wants nothing more than to make it up to her—by offering her his heart. But then disaster strikes—his father demands that Jago marry a girl he has not seen since they were children. If he refuses, he will be disinherited … and who will look twice at a penniless Rogue? After enduring disgrace that she did not deserve, Rowena Penrose has returned to Cornwall. Far from the ballrooms of the ton, suitable men are scarce, except for Jago Tremayne. He’s called the rudest man in London, but here at home, he’s beginning to grow on her. He is blunt and graceless, but also kind, attentive, and … on the point of announcing his engagement to someone else. Rowena would never stand in the way of another young lady’s happiness. Jago can’t imagine courting anyone but Rowena. Can the rudest man in London fight his way out of this coil before he finds himself waiting at the altar for the wrong woman? The Rogues of St. Just. They may be the most shocking men in Mayfair, but their hearts are all too vulnerable at home. “Charlotte Henry is solidly on my keeper shelf with her first book. Delightful and sparkling!” —Jenny Andersen, author of the Western Heroes series

Victoria Growing up in far-off India, wealthy young heiress Lady Victoria Arbuthnot was accustomed to handling her own affairs -- not to mention everyone else's. But in her sixteenth year, Vicky is unceremoniously shipped off to London to find a husband. With her usual aplomb, however, Lady Victoria gets herself engaged to the perfect English gentleman, even before setting foot on British soil. The Rogue Hugo Rothschild, ninth earl of Malfrey, is everything a girl could want in a future husband: he is handsome and worldly, if not rich. Lady Victoria has everything just as she'd like it. That is, if raffish young ship captain Jacob Carstairs would leave well enough alone. Jacob's meddling is nothing short of exasperating, and Victoria is mystified by his persistence. But when it becomes clear that young Lord Malfrey just might not be all that he's professed to be, Victoria is forced to admit, for the first time in her life, that she is wrong. Not only about her fiance, but about the reason behind the handsome ship captain's interference.

An aristocratic birthright and the luxurious comforts of profound wealth did nothing to comfort Fontaine Pratina following the death of her beloved parents. After two years in the guardianship of her mother's arrogant and selfish sister, Carileena Wetherton, Fontaine's only moments of joy and peace were found in the company of the loyal servants of Pratina Manor. Only in the kitchens and servant's quarters of her grand domicile did Fontaine find friendship, laughter and affection. The life of a wealthy orphan destined to inherit loomed before Fontaine-a dark cloud of shallow, arrogant associations-of aristocracy, void of simple joys-and void of love. Still, it was her lot-and she saw no way of escaping. Yet, one cold winter's night, a battered stranger appeared at the servant's entrance, seeking shelter and help. He gave only his first name, Knight-and suddenly, Fontaine found herself experiencing fleeting moments of joy in life. Knight was handsome, powerful-the very stuff of the legends of days of old. Though a servant's class was his, he was proud, strong and even his name seemed to validate his persona-and he blissfully distracted Fontaine from her dull, hopeless existence. Still, there were devilish secrets-strategies cached by her greedy aunt-and not even the handsome and powerful Knight could save her from them. Or could he? And if he did-would the truth force Fontaine to forfeit her Knight, her heart's desire-the man she loved?
