The Duke's Virgin Sister
They haven’t quite managed to tame her wild streak.
It is to be The Match of the Season. At least, that’s what Lady Carlotta Merritt, sister to the cool and aloof Duke of Cashingham, has been told repeatedly by her mother. The Dowager is beyond thrilled about her daughter’s engagement to Society’s most eligible bachelor, Lord What’s-His-Face. Carlotta, on the other hand, would much rather be gallivanting around her brother’s Yorkshire estate, falling out of trees or fishing in the streams or reading one of her naughty books in the shade on a summer day.
But her mother has made it very clear that she’s to behave herself, as befitting the sister of a duke, and Carlotta has been trying, honest. But when Mother is called up to Scotland, she invites Carlotta and her fiancé to follow…sans chaperone. That’s when her brother volunteers his own brother-in-law—the illegitimate Scotsman with a charming grin, a wicked reputation, and battered hands which make Carlotta think all sorts of wicked thoughts—to tag along.
And he knows all the best ways to be wild.
Keith Oliphant knows exactly who he is; the natural-born son of an earl, a close friend to the laird of his clan, and the best damned bare-knuckled boxer in all of England and Scotland combined. These hands of his have done things most men can only imagine, and now they face their biggest challenge yet; holding the safety of a duke’s sister, one whose smile and love of adventure make him yearn for things he can’t have. Especially since she’s engaged to the complete clot-heid who is sitting between them in the coach.
Aye, this journey to Scotland will be a difficult one, despite the opulence of traveling with a duke’s sister. Between his impossible desires, Lord What’s-His-Face the fiancé, and Carlotta’s own wild streak, Keith suspects he’s facing his biggest challenge yet: when he delivers Carlotta to the duke, will she still be a virgin?
Warning: There’s naughty bits. A lot of them. And probably some ridiculously contrived accidents to get the pair of them together sans clothes. And of course, plenty of inappropriate jokes and eye-rollingly bad puns. Get ready for another hilarious Victorian RomCom, with all the best laughs you’ve come to expect from Caroline Lee!
The Earl's Brazen Widow
She cannot confess her sins.
Ten years ago, Lady Violet Forbes betrayed the man she loved…by marrying his father. It wasn’t her fault, exactly (you know how these things go), but Malcolm was, frankly, quite put out by the news, and has refused to acknowledge her since. Now, as the widowed Countess of Buckingford, she wields power and wealth in her young son’s name, but nine-year-old Brom’s small empire is wobbling. She needs to start selling off some of his estates in order to maintain the rest…which means angering the man who already thinks her far too wicked.
His secret is the love which still shames him.
Malcolm Forbes, the illegitimate son of the Earl of Buckingford, always thought of himself as academic and stoic. A decade of managing one of his father’s far-flung estates has taught him to think before he acts. But when he receives a letter from his father’s widow—the only woman he’s ever loved—stating her intentions to sell his home, he reacts most rashly.
Now they’ve made a brazen bargain.
A mere month as the young earl’s tutor, and Malcolm can gain the deed to his home. Unfortunately, this means a month with the one woman who can enrage his anger and his passions unlike any other. Violet, meanwhile, is determined to earn his forgiveness…even if it means risking everything she’s hoped for, and revealing her secrets.
This likely won’t end well.
WARNING: Of course it’ll end well, it’s a romcom. Be prepared for an angsty hero, a cheeky kid, quite a lot of embarrassing puns, and some really smoking bedsport. This second-chance secret baby romance will leave you laughing!
