Letters to a Lover – Mary Lancaster

ONLY ONE GUEST remained in Lady Trench’s drawing room. Since it was the handsome Mr. Gunning, tongues would inevitably wag. “We are alone,” he observed softly. “Don’t allow me to detain you from more interesting pursuits,” Lady Trench drawled. His eyes glowed in a familiar manner. “You know I have none.” “Then you must acquire […]

Regency for all Seasons – Mary Lancaster

CAROLİNE GREY HURRİED into the empty schoolroom. After the excitement of yesterday’s wedding, she had allowed her pupils a day of rest and expected no interruptions. Sinking into the chair normally occupied by Lady Maria, the eldest of her three charges, she tore open her mother’s letter. But if she had hoped to chase away […]

Mysterious Lover – Mary Lancaster

Grizelda liked to lose herself in opera, in the exquisite music and the inevitable tragedy. Unfortunately, there was little chance of that tonight, since her mother was restless and needed someone else to be running around for her. “Don’t you find it too warm in here?” the duchess whispered audibly to her son as she […]

Widow’s Treasure – Mary Lancaster

Sir Stirling James paused behind the servant who had escorted him through the house and peered past the man’s shoulder as the servant announced him. Robert Ogilvy of Lochgarron sat behind his desk, scowling at a letter held between his rough fingers. He wore no coat or necktie, and his too long, rumpled hair fell […]

Wicked Christmas – Mary Lancaster

DR. NİCHOLAS LAMPTON hastened through the freezing darkness to the Blackhaven Hotel. He had endured a trying evening, administering to the overprivileged who had little more to complain about than their own overindulgence. Very little could have dragged him out again, just when he was preparing for bed, but he never refused calls to sick […]

Vienna Wolfe – Mary Lancaster

Without doubt, Elise caused the accident by daydreaming. Lost in her own thoughts of a certain nobleman known as the English Wolf, she paid no attention to her surroundings until a horse and laden cart swerved to avoid her. Unfortunately, the carter drove straight into the path of a magnificent, white stallion which reared up […]

The Wicked Wife – Mary Lancaster

FRANCES, COUNTESS OF Torridon, woke to discover her husband sitting on the edge of her bed. Her heart fluttered. She had almost forgotten how darkly handsome he was, how the smoke-grey of his hard eyes could ignite with lust. She smiled. “What are you doing here?” “Admiring the beauty of my sleeping wife.” He leaned […]

The Wicked Waif – Mary Lancaster

IN THE HOWLİNG gale, battered by driving, freezing rain, Dove’s small boat fought its way through massive waves. Rowing against the wind and the tide, he’d struggled to get close to what was left of The Phoenix, but he could see no one clinging to the wreckage. He stopped rowing to listen for any cries […]

The Wicked Spy – Mary Lancaster

BEİNG AN AMBİTİOUS man, Henry Harcourt always entered his neat London house with faint dissatisfaction. He disliked its modest size and unfashionable location. This evening, however, he had more important matters on his mind—matters, which might, in fact, lead to promotion and a larger house before too much longer. His heart lifted as always at […]

The Wicked Sister – Mary Lancaster

THE DRİZZLİNG RAİN lent a misty, almost dreamlike quality to the castle. Lady Maria Conway sighed as the carriage thundered ever-closer. The scolding she was about to receive would be real enough. Her stomach was already knotted in unpleasant anticipation. Distractedly, she rubbed her gloved hands together, trying to soothe her nerves by pressing her […]

The Wicked Rebel – Mary Lancaster

LADY ARABELLA NİVEN backed toward the bedchamber door. Her breath came in short, shallow gasps and her throat seemed to be closing up. Her aunts’ furious argument had just about reached the stage where they wouldn’t notice her departure, even though it was Arabella they were quarrelling over. Surreptitiously, she lifted her old travelling cloak […]

The Wicked Marquis – Mary Lancaster

LADY SERENA WALTZED into the schoolroom. Finding herself in a beam of bright sunshine, she halted and winked at her younger sisters. For their entertainment, she created bird-shapes with her hands that reflected on the opposite wall. Maria grinned, Alice chortled, and Helen actually sprang to her feet in instant desire to make shapes of […]

The Wicked Lady – Mary Lancaster

TRİSTRAM GRANT STEPPED into the glittering ballroom. “Grant!” a familiar voice called. Dr. Lampton, the town physician, and his wife were seated opposite the door. Since it was they who had invited him to come, he edged his way around the dance floor, smiling and murmuring greetings to the regular members of his congregation whom […]

The Wicked Husband – Mary Lancaster

WİLLA HAD ONLY just dropped into bed when Haines, her aunt’s maid, barged into her chamber. “Sir Ralph sent you this,” Haines uttered, her lips stiff with disapproval as she dropped the paper onto Willa’s narrow cot. If she’d had the energy, Willa would have groaned. She hadn’t even had time to blow out the […]

The Wicked Heir – Mary Lancaster

TRYİNG NOT TO look as furtive as she felt, Miss Jessica Fordyce hurried down the staircase of the Blackhaven Hotel. She hadn’t expected the foyer to be so busy at this time of the evening, and a twinge of curiosity threatened to deflect her from her purpose—but only for a moment. The crowd in the […]

The Wicked Gypsy – Mary Lancaster

GERVAİSE CONWAY, THE Earl of Braithwaite, gazed down on the gypsy encampment. Despite the blistering cold of the January evening, there was something cozy and jolly about the gathering. He had granted the gypsy family use of the old cottage to sleep in, but they had flung up a couple of tents outside and built […]

The Wicked Governess – Mary Lancaster

CAROLİNE GREY HURRİED into the empty schoolroom. After the excitement of yesterday’s wedding, she had allowed her pupils a day of rest and expected no interruptions.

The Wicked Baron – Mary Lancaster

SMUGGLER JACK HAD undoubtedly been shot. Gillie stared at the hole in his chest, just below his right shoulder, from which blood had spilled all over his clothes. In fact, it still bled sluggishly. Jack’s comrades heaved his body on to the wooden table in the center of the cellar, and he groaned and opened […]
