Powder of Love (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Heiress Rosalie Ambermere doesn’t know why Gideon Reed sits scowling in her sitting room. Or why she finds him so appealing. She’d envisioned her heart falling to a serene gentleman, not to this unpolished, brooding man. And yet she finds Mr. Reed absurdly attractive. Surely her craving for his touch is due to the strange powder she recently inherited from her rakehell cousin. When Gideon offers to help her find a way to dispose of the aphrodisiac, she agrees. Best to be rid of the powder and the man in one fell swoop. Hired as a keeper, former detective Gideon must follow his oversexed client Walter everywhere, including into lovely ladies’ homes. Reed suspects Miss Ambermere is just another eager chapter in Walter’s endless diary of bedroom conquests. Another hedonistic woman spoiled by inherited wealth, until he learns there’s another draw for Walter -- the powder that could create disaster in the idiot’s hands. He soon understands there is more to the alluring Miss Ambermere than meets the eye; perhaps enough to tempt even his disillusioned heart. Gideon must work with Rosalie to safely dispose of the powder without falling prey to the dangerous effects of pure chemistry.
The Mad Baron (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: The first part of the first chapter. . . . Reckless Florrie Cadero gets more than she bargained for when she breaks into the mansion. The man in the locked room sweeps her into his story—and his bed. After his escape, Nathaniel, Baron Felston, hunts the villain who’d destroy his life, but he’s even more determined to find the woman who helped him.
