British Black Sheep

He is exactly the kind of man Brie Honeyweather swore never to love…or lust after ever again: a sexy, arrogant, British bad boy in a designer suit. Alec is the last person Brie wants to be stuck on an international flight to London with, but hey…at least they’re in first class.

When their flight has to make an emergency landing in a snowstorm just before Christmas, Brie and Alec are thrown together in a single bedroom in a tiny English village. As the snowstorm rages outside, things get intense and emotions and lust run hot. Alec reminds Brie just how much she misses being with a man and how easy it is to fall head over heels too fast.

What should have been an amazing one-night stand turns into a week-long secret romance at Alec’s family estate when Brie realizes her new boss is Alec’s mother, a British countess. While Brie tries to focus on writing a Christmas book with the countess, all she can think about is getting back into bed with Alec.

She shouldn’t fall for the arrogant brit, especially when their lives are oceans apart and neither of them wants a serious relationship. But Christmas magic has a way of working miracles. Maybe Santa will bring her a happy ending after all…

Danger makes the heart grow fonder…

Miss Philippa Wilson makes the best of a bad situation. Her lot in life isn’t what she’d choose, but being an upstairs maid for a wealthy baron is better than living on the streets. Little does she know her lackluster days are about to become decidedly more interesting…and dangerous. When a madman wants Philippa dead, it’s going to take more than the plan of her good-hearted employer to save her and find out why she’s being targeted. It’s going to take a hero…or maybe a rogue.

Beauregard Boudreaux is a notorious rogue, living uneventful days and terribly scandalous nights with little thought to settling down. He needs nothing more than a strong drink, a beautiful mistress, and a spirited card game to be happy…When he intervenes to rescue a friend’s upstairs maid from a killer, he’s drawn into a game of cat and mouse with the maid used as bait to draw out the killer. But the more time Beau spends with Philippa as her protector, the more he has an irresistible attraction to this mysterious woman. He also can’t shake the feeling that he’s seen her somewhere before.

But Beau has lost too much in life to risk being hurt again. He can’t let himself fall in love, not even with the temptation Philippa presents to him.

And bloody hell, she is oh-so tempting…

La Seduzione del Gentiluomo

Author:
Series: La Seduzione Series, Book 4
Genres: Foreign Editions, Italian

È la stagione… della vendetta.

Undici anni fa, a Natale, la famiglia di Martin Banks venne gettata in mezzo alla strada dal ricco padrone di casa Edwin Hartwell. Ora, nel periodo festivo, il Fato ha in serbo per Martin un dono inaspettato. La vendetta. Sconfiggere Hartwell a carte dà a Martin la possibilità di rovinare finanziariamente l’uomo… ma, dannazione, Hartwell offre la figlia come pagamento al posto del denaro. E, doppia dannazione, Martin accetta stupidamente. Come ha fatto il castigo a tramutarsi in seduzione? Martin rifiuta di innamorarsi, per cui stabilisce delle regole per il gioco.

E magari per un po’ di romanticismo.

Ansiosa di salvare il padre dalla rovina, Livvy Hartwell accetta di accompagnarsi a Martin come suo amorazzo. Ha da tempo accettato l’idea che un’intellettuale spiantata come lei non ha alcuna possibilità di contrarre un buon matrimonio. Se qualche mese di passione con un uomo come Martin è quanto di più vicino all’amore lei possa avere, Livvy intende cogliere l’occasione. Ma deve proteggere il suo cuore. Martin potrà anche essere bello come il diavolo e tentatore come il peccato, ma lei non è in grado di essere un’amante come tante e non vuole che Martin la chiami così. Anzi, ha un elenco di regole.

Le regole di Livvy:

~ Avventure all’aperto, come l’equitazione, sarebbero apprezzate.

~ I pasti serali andrebbero consumati insieme, per conversare degli eventi della giornata.

~ Una quantità prestabilita di tempo da sola per leggere romanzi gotici.

~ I baci dovrebbero essere ridotti al minimo.

Le regole di Martin:

~ Le avventure – soprattutto al coperto – sono necessarie e molto apprezzate.

~ I pasti serali verranno occasionalmente consumati in camera da letto, nudi.

~ Una quantità prestabilita di tempo insieme per mettere in atto i contenuti di sensuali romanzi gotici.

~ I baci – in gran quantità e in punti molto piacevoli – sono obbligatori.
