There are 2 great stories in this book, the first 2 of the series on the Malory's.

Love Only Once

Regina Ashton, niece to Jason, Edward, James and Anthony Malory is in her 3rd season and is tired of looking for a husband. Nicholas Eden has just tired of his latest mistress – he kidnaps Regina thinking she is his mistress and is surprised to find she is not. He has ruined her and she has decided he will be her husband and with the help of her Uncles he is forced into marriage. He then seduces Regina, all part of a plan for her not to marry him but they marry even though he tried very hard to make Regina jilt him. I would have loved them to have spoken to each other and gotten over their differences earlier than they did but I enjoyed the story all the same.

Tender Rebel

Roslynn Chadwick is running away to England from her home in Scotland to go so that her cousin Geordie Cameron cannot force her into marrying him. Now that her father has died and left everything to Roslynn, Geordie wants to marry her so it can be his and that is not going to happen so she is off to find herself a husband.

Anthony Malory is at this party to watch over his niece Reggie when he sees Roslynn and is captivated by her at that first meeting and before he knows it he is offering to marry her – he did not know where that came from.

The fun did not end there; Roslynn had ideas of what marriage could be like and had some conditions for Anthony which he was happy to go along with.

I loved this story as much as I have all the stories about each of the Malory’s – they are a loveable bunch of people and all the men have been rogues who are reformed when they find the love of their life, but never without a fight.
