What are the odds these surly Scottish ex-comrades-in-arms have all unexpectedly inherited dukedoms? Perhaps they should form a club. Get ready for more laugh-out-loud ridiculousness, and plenty of heat, in this new HistRomCom series!
The Duke's Deceitful Governess
Love is a luxury he can’t afford…
For years, he was known only as Blackrose’s Blade, an elite assassin in the employ of the Crown. But after a mission which cost him the use of his leg, Rourke Lindsay has unexpectedly inherited a dukedom…and along with it, the headache of a pair of hellion twins. His niece and nephew have been kicked out of every school he’s sent them to and scared off every governess he’s hired; now he’s in dire need of a miracle.
He just didn’t expect her to be quite so tempting.
Needing a safe place to hide, Miss Sophia Cuny has forged her references and settled into the Duke of Exingham’s employ, unwilling to admit she knows next to nothing about children. (How hard can child-rearing be, after all? Perhaps there’s a book on the subject she could send off for…) She does, however, know all about the duke’s covert past, and why the cynical Scot refuses to allow himself close to a pair of rapscallion troublemakers, no matter how desperately they need his love.
And the longer she tries to avoid the new duke, the more she sees the man beneath the scars—the man who needs love as well, even if he’s unwilling to admit it. Too bad she can’t afford to allow him into her heart, even as the danger she’s been running from closes in.
Because Sophia possesses secrets about his past even Rourke doesn’t know, and revealing the truth will ruin them all.
Warning: There’s a lot of spicy bits, and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments!

The Duke's Bartered Mistress
The whispers say he’s a demon, but now he owns her…and she can’t regret it!
It is vital Lady Georgia Stoughton finds a way to pay her father’s debt, but the man who owns it—rumored to be cursed—refuses her money. But when she offers herself in repayment, the demon with the body of an angel calls her bluff…and signs the contract. Now she belongs to him, body and soul, until the last hour of December.
Lord Edymion, Demon Hayle, wants two things in his life: seclusion, and revenge on the man who scarred him so horribly, making him unfit for Society. The first was going perfectly fine until a brash beauty pushes her way into his life, and before he can kick her out the door, offers the second. Lady Georgia’s father is the key to his revenge, but this contract is so much sweeter: the use of Georgia’s body, whenever and however he wants her, for the next month.
It's going to be a holiday season to remember.
Georgia can’t regret the arrangement that made her Demon’s, not when she has free run of his castle, library, and neglected rose garden. And as the month progresses, she realizes he’s not quite the demon everyone whispers, especially not with the pleasure he shows her in the bedroom (and study, and conservatory, and once up against the wall in the linen closet). Can this beauty drag him from his seclusion and show him the joys in opening his heart to others?
Perhaps, but Georgia’s plans are interrupted by the telegram announcing Demon’s just unexpectedly become a duke. Well, blast. Is he ready for London? It’s up to Georgia now, but as the end of December looms nearer, Demon’s revenge is slipping from his grasp…
Warning: There’s a lot of spicy bits...and hilarious servants, a stubborn cat, more gardening than you’d expect in December, and still more spicy bits. Get ready to laugh out loud with another Caroline Lee HistRomCom!
