The Heir’s Proposal – Maggi Andersen

The stillness in the air heralded the coming of a storm. On the roof of her beloved home, Langley, tucked snuggly in between the turret and the green copper cupola, Lady Adelaide Sherringham watched the bright flashes of distant lightning, long before the rumble of thunder reached her, and long before the guests enjoying the […]

Introducing Miss Joanna – Maggi Andersen

“IT’S SOLD!” Joanna Dalrymple’s father burst through the door, his face wreathed in smiles. She glanced up from slicing meat for their luncheon at the kitchen table.

What a Gentleman Desires – Maggi Andersen

“I say, there’s Lord Ogilvie, Earl of Douglass,” Horace Atherton said, raising his voice above the clinking of glasses and the murmur of table talk. Blair Dunleavy searched through the pall of cigar smoke at the checkerboard of black tailcoats and trousers, white waistcoats, and bow ties. He located the Earl, sitting among the industrialists, […]

Unmasking Lady Helen – Maggi Andersen

“He’s down there again.” “Come away from the window, Diana. He might see you.” Helen eyed her sister as she arranged the cups and saucers over the table. “The sun’s shining directly on your hair.

LADY ALTHEA BROOKWOOD stood beside her brother, Frederick Purkins and his wife, Elizabeth, as they watched Althea’s Mayfair townhouse emptied of its contents.

The Scandalous Lyon – Maggi Andersen

Through the mist, Lord Jason Glazebrook strolled toward the distinctive blue house on Cleveland Row in Whitehall. Inside there would be warmth and life.

Never Doubt a Duke – Maggi Andersen

“NELLİE, YOU MUST see this article!” Nellie’s sister, Marian, her green eyes wide, rushed into Nellie’s bedchamber, clutching a newspaper. “It’s about the duke!” “I don’t know why you have those scandal broths sent to you. Let me see.” Nellie almost snatched it. Thirsting for any information on the man she was to marry and […]

Hostage to Love – Maggi Andersen

The pretty butterflies had vanished from Versailles along with their queen. Verity Garnier glanced around the ballroom as she performed the steps of the minuet.

Captain Jack Ryder – Maggi Andersen

Stamford, Hertfordshire, 1821 The horses proceeded down the avenue of ancient elms at a solemn pace, their black plumed heads bowing, as the Duke of Stamford was taken to his last resting place.

An Improper Earl – Maggi Andersen

The steel-rimmed wheels of the carriage clattered over the cobbles. Gerard pushed his beaver hat back off his face and leaned forward to raise the blind. Carriage lamps cast a feeble glow over the brick walls of the narrow lane, where scant moonlight penetrated. Minutes later, they’d reached their destination. He checked the pockets of […]
