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 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 painful past and why the cynical warrior refuses to allow himself close to a pair of rapscallion troublemakers, no matter how desperately they need his love.
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 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 are a lot of spicy bits and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments! If you like broodingly stoic heroes, determinedly adorkable heroines, and mischievously meddling kids, then scroll back up to that pretty orange “Read Now” button and grab this first book in a brand-new, laugh-out-loud (and super steamy) Caroline Lee RomCom!
The Duke's Bartered Mistress
The whispers say he’s a demon, but now he owns her…
It is vital Lady Georgia Stoughton finds a way to pay her father’s debt, but the cursed man who owns it refuses her money. So when she offers herself in repayment, the devil 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 is 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 Hayle of a holiday season.
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 she becomes addicted to the pleasure he shows her in the bedroom (and study, and conservatory, and once up against the wall in the linen closet), she begins to doubt her own plans.
Then comes the letter with the announcement Demon has 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!
The Duke's Counterfeit Wife
How did she end up make-believe married to the Grump Next Door?
Miss Felicity Montrose is shy, awkward, and—as an unwed mother—well past the age most consider a “miss.” She’s mere weeks from finalizing the prototype of her moving picture camera, which will be the invention of the century (assuming her cats cooperate). And she hopes it’s just her scientific curiosity which causes her to be so desperately stimulated by her next-door neighbor, regardless of his seemingly endless supply of crankiness.
Griffin Calderbank wasn’t always the mild-mannered clerk he now pretends to be; his years of spying are behind him, and it’s finally safe to bring his little family out of hiding. The worst he must deal with is ignoring the enticing woman next door…until their children enter them into a contest to give him a chance at the inheritance long denied him.
The only issue? He’ll have to pretend to be a happy husband to the odd, but oh-so-tempting Miss Montrose. And when she makes him a scandalous wager, he simply can’t refuse…
Soon, however, it’s not just a dukedom on the line, but the very future of the country, as a hunt for a traitor to the crown turns deadly. But he can’t be expected to concentrate on such stakes when there’s a beautiful scientist in his bed, offering him her cooperation in exchange for satisfying her…curiosity. Can Griffin protect his family and the brilliant, quirky woman he’s beginning to love?
Warning: If sinful wagers, adorkable heroines and gruff heroes aren’t your thing, you’re in the wrong place. This one is smoking-hot and full of characters you’re going to fall absolutely in love with, while being laugh-out-loud funny. Promise!
