A Beastly Duke Meets his Match in a Gentle Beauty...
Justin Trevelyan, the new Duke of Marlow, has everything a woman could want. Yet match-making mamas hide their daughters whenever he steps into a ballroom. They call him Devil Trevelyan—an arrogant beast of a man, a notorious libertine who has raised debauchery to an art form. No one sees the ugly scars hidden beneath his handsome face and reckless spirit.
Isabel Darracott is determined to convince her negligent guardian to provide for her two younger sisters. Instead of the middle-aged gentleman she expected to find in London, she tangles with a half-clad barbarian intent on ravishing her. When she realizes the horrible truth, she insists Justin appoint an appropriate guardian.
Astonished by his estranged father’s will, Justin abhors the idea of guardianship to this impertinent spinster and her two sisters. Yet, Isabel has tossed the gauntlet. She challenges him, defies him, captivates him with her gentle beauty and strong spirit. As they untangle an ancient mystery and investigate the murders of her father and brother, Justin realizes he must prove his honor to earn a chance for this angel to redeem his soul.
“Debra Dier will keep you turning the pages in this entertaining, fast paced tale…It both charms and delights with a little mystery, passion and even a bit of humor.” —RT Reviews

An Early-American Love Story...
Wishing she could accompany Evaline on the journey, a young girl, Missy, scratches her name and address on the back of her fiddle, hoping she will at least write to her. But the wicked, little dour Missy is out to betray Evaline and out for the one thing she loves the most, the handsome Dutch-Indian, Winterwolf. Will Evaline return to Winterwolf or will her heart be taken by one of many lusty men with too few women in the New World? Will Winterwolf be spoiled by beautiful doting Dutch girls who want his love as much or more than Evaline? Is his love for Evaline and that they share similar backgrounds, enough for him to return? What if he finds Evaline and she has her own new love?
Nothing feels better than awakening in Winterwolf's gentle arms. It was her first kiss but it will not be her last. Nothing will stop her from arriving in New Orleans, not Winterwolf nor Frederick nor any other man whose arms she finds herself in. She will fulfill her dream of reaching New Orleans, even if she has to play her fiddle all the way to pay for it. But are there too many handsome young men waiting to take advantage of her and she of their infatuation with her? What's in the future for a beautiful French-Acadian girl, raised amongst French aristocrats but now out on her own traveling down the Atlantic coast toward New Orleans?
