An Invitation to Sin

Forbidden Affections by Jo Beverley

The doors to romance can be found in the most unexpected places, especially when the notorious Earl of Carne moves into the mansion neighboring Anna Featherstone's London townhouse. Who knocks first remains the only question. . .

The Pleasure Of A Younger Lover by Vanessa Kelly

Clarissa Middleton cannot resist the ardent kisses of Captain Christian Archer, though they must meet in secret or risk the censure of London society. In each other's arms, desire and love melt two hearts into one. . .

The Naked Prince by Sally MacKenzie

Josephine Atworthy is shocked by the goings-on at her rich neighbor's house party. Quite shocked. But her demure charm beguiles a mysterious nobleman, who begs a kiss--then another. And in a twinkling they fall head over heels in love. . .

A Summer Love Affair by Kaitlin O'Riley

Unmarried. Unconventional. Unchaperoned. Miss Charlotte Wilson is free to do as she pleases and Gavin Ellsworth is dashing. Summer in Spain at a secluded villa is about to get a whole lot hotter. . .

The Naked Baron

Tell Me What You Want

New to London society and rather. . .awkward. . .Lady Grace Belmont would just as soon hide behind the palm trees as dance with a man she doesn't know. But Baron Dawson is on the hunt for a wife. Grace's generous curves and remarkable height do not intimidate him. In fact, it would be more accurate to describe his reaction to the charming newcomer as lust.

Before Grace can so much as gather her thoughts, she finds herself in his arms, committing one shocking impropriety after another. The Baron's devilish attractiveness--to say nothing of his splendid muscles--is simply impossible to resist. Her beloved aunt and chaperone advises patience, but Grace is not about to listen. The handsome baron is whispering such delightful things in her ear. . .

When His Kiss is Wicked

After her father's death, Colette Hamilton is left with four sisters, an invalid mother and a failing bookshop. The only way she can save the family business is with her unconventional ideas. . .or let her uncle marry her off. As for the handsome stranger in her bookshop? He's Lucien Sinclair, son of an earl, and a known rogue uninterested in marriage.

Unknown to Colette, Lucien has begun an urgent search for a bride, so that his ailing father might see him married before he dies. He knows what he wants--a plain, biddable woman without the curse of beauty to endanger his heart. Yet no matter how he tries, Lucien finds himself unable to stay away from Colette. And as sinful pleasure lures them ever closer to the edge of ruin, the only question that matters is whether they can survive the fall. . .

Arguably today's most skillful writer of intelligent historical romance... Publisher's Weekly, March 9th 1998

Jo Beverley is the author of eighteen published romances, both Regency and historical. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Golden Leaf, the Award of Excellence, the National Readers Choice, and a two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times. She is also a four time winner of the RITA, the top award of the Romance Writers Of America, and a member of their Hall of Fame.

Born and raised in England, Jo moved to Canada in the mid-seventies with her scientist husband. She now lives in Victoria with her husband and two teenaged sons.

Jo began writing stories almost as soon as she could string sentences together, and still has a medieval historical romance written in a school text book when she was a teenager. It was only in the mid eighties, however, that things came together for her to apply herself seriously to writing, and she completed a regency romance in 1985. It was promptly rejected by a number of publishers, and she settled more earnestly to learning the craft. In 1988, it sold to Walker, and was published as LORD WRAYBOURNE'S BETROTHED.

This was followed by three other traditional regencies, then two longer regencies — the beginning of her famous Company Of Rogues series—and then she returned to her first love, medieval historical. However, an interested publisher would only buy her first medieval if she wrote a Regency historical for them as well, Regency historicals being all the rage. As she wrote the book, Jo decided she really wanted to write a Georgian, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and thus began her successful Malloren series, presided over by the head of the Malloren family, the enigmatic Marquis of Rothgar. Jo gets so many letters from readers demanding Rothgar's story, that she has buttons saying "Waiting For Rothgar."

Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley, Joanna Bourne, Patricia Rice, Nicola Cornick, Cara Elliott, Anne Gracie, Susan King are the ladies otherwise known as the Word Wenches. These eight authors have written a combined 231 novels and 74 novellas. They’ve won awards such as the RITAS, RT Lifetime Achievement award, RT Living Legend, and RT Reviewers Choice award. Several of them are regulars on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists. Learn more at www.wordwenches.com.
