All she had to do was find a fiancé. In four days. In the middle of nowhere.

One reclusive bluestocking…
Fiona Amberly is more intrigued by the Roman ruins near her manor house than she is by balls. When her dying Grandmother worries about Fiona’s future, Fiona stammers that she’s secretly engaged. Soon she finds herself promising that she will introduce her husband-to-be by Christmas. 

One dutiful duke…
Percival Carmichael, new Duke of Alfriston, is in a hurry. He’s off to propose to London’s most eligible debutante. After nearly dying at Waterloo, he’s vowed to spend the rest of his life living up to the ton’s expectations.
 
One fallen tree…
When Fiona tries to warn a passing coach about a tree in the road, the driver mistakes her for a highwaywoman. Evidently he’s not used to seeing women attired in clothes only suitable for archaeology waving knives. After the driver flees, Fiona decides she may as well borrow the handsome passenger…

 A Rogue to Avoid

The only thing Lady Cordelia and Lord Rockport can agree on is their mutual abhorrence.

Lady Cordelia was supposed to be the perfect debutante. But three broken engagements later, she’s the subject of titters rather than laudations. Now relegated to the wallflower section of every ballroom, she does not want anything to plummet her further into scandal. She absolutely does not want to have anything to do with the too handsome, too roguish, too Scottish Marquess of Rockport.

Gerard Highgate, Marquess of Rockport, is not the type to attend balls. But when he is chased into a home in Harrogate, he decides he must blend in–even if that means dancing with Lady Cordelia.

When her mother arranges a marriage for her, Louisa decides she might just don a pair of breeches and discover the Caribbean in disguise. The only problem is a certain very handsome captain…

Mad About the Baron 

A hopeless romantic…

A Marquess for Convenience

A notorious rogue.

Lord Arthur Carmichael, Marquess of Bancroft, excels at everything, even cultivating a wild reputation to cover for the spy missions he undertakes for the Crown. Unfortunately now that he’s helped secure the peace, his rakish reputation is a hindrance to continuing in his career–unless he takes a wife. 
One last mission. 

Before he can embark on the dreaded wedding quest, he must complete one last mission: catch a thief who’s stolen four of five priceless French jewels. If the last one disappears, the fragile peace between France and England could be damaged beyond repair.

The woman he’s never forgotten. 
Lady Madeline Mulbourne, the beautiful widow of a renowned art critic and the woman he once adored, is known for her pristine reputation. Who could make a more convenient bride? But when jewels disappear at balls she’s attended, Arthur suspects she might not be nearly as prim and proper as she appears.
