"Oh, those naughty rakes. With their wicked winks, sensual smiles,
and bad boy habits, you just can't take them out in polite society. But
who wants to go out when you can stay in. . .?
Sebastian Blake, Earl of Merrick, long ago fled the
responsibilities of his title to become the infamous pirate, Captain
Phoenix. But the booty he's just captured on a merchant ship is a fierce
tempered minx who claims to be a bride. . .his bride, married to him
by proxy on behest of their fathers. He could shame his hated family and
return his beautiful wife untouched, but no treasure has ever proved
more tempting to Sebastian, and making their marriage a true one--in
every sense--is his one urgent desire . . .
Lucien Remington's reputation as a debauched libertine who plays by
no one's rules--in business or the bedroom--is well deserved. He gets
what he wants, social repudiation be damned. But society can keep from
him the one thing he truly desires, the untouchable Lady Julienne La
Coeur. Until she sneaks into his club dressed as a man and searching for
her irresponsible brother. Suddenly she's in Lucien's grasp, his to
take, and his mind is filled with the most wickedly sinful thoughts. A
gentleman would walk away from the temptation she presents. But then,
Lucien has never claimed to be a gentleman. . .
Her Mad Grace
Hugh La Coeur never wanted to be the Earl of Montrose. Wine, women,
and a hefty wager are preferable to responsibility of any kind. It's
certainly preferable to spending the night in an eerie, neglected
mansion owned by a legendary madwoman. The duchess's companion, the
fiercely independent Charlotte, is another matter altogether. Hugh would
be happy to spend as many nights in her bed as possible. He knows she's
hiding terrible secrets, but for once in his life, Hugh has the desire
to take on someone else's burden as his own, no matter what the danger.
They're mad, bad, and totally irresistible. . . "
