The Lady’s Forbidden Love – Wendy Vella

“Why are we walking past this place again?” “We haven’t walked by here lately, have we?” Daniel Dillinger schooled his features to appear confused as he looked at his sister. “How can you not remember walking by the Duck and Goose Tavern three times in the last week?” Kate looked annoyed. “It may be dark, […]

The Lady’s Dangerous Love – Wendy Vella

“Primrose Ainsley would make an ideal wife for you, Ben.” “I don’t want a wife, Phoebe.” Benjamin Hetherington fought the urge to loosen his necktie at his sister-in-law’s words, but as his arms were currently trapped by the women at his sides, he could do nothing but endure their lectures. “But she is perfect, Ben. […]

The Earl’s Encounter – Wendy Vella

Viscount Haddon raised his collar as he entered the graveyard. It was cold enough that his breath formed white puffs of air, and mist clung to him as he walked the well-worn path. Rows of headstones veered left and right, and beneath were the bones of hundreds who had reached their final resting place. He […]

Tempting Danger – Wendy Vella

“Move, you fool!” Had the Marquis of Braithwaite not been deep in thought, he would have heard the warning.

His grunt was one of pain as his shoulder hit […]

He listened as Bids […]

Seductive Danger – Wendy Vella

K ate Sinclair burrowed deeper into her thick scarf as she took the track down the cliff to the beach below. It was steep and winding, but she’d walked it before with her cousins. Wind howled, and sea spray dabbled her face the lower she got. Gulls cried, the sound catching on the wind as […]

Lords of Night Street Collection – Wendy Vella

Grace wanted to scratch her wrists. The stiff lace the seamstress had put around the cuffs was chafing. In fact the whole dress was uncomfortable, and it was not made better by her corset, which was laced so tightly she felt light-headed. Grace didn’t like corsets, and usually instructed her maid to tie it so […]

Lord Valorous – Wendy Vella

The Hen and Duck was a small tavern with two mullioned front windows and a large sign with a hen and a duck engaged in what appeared to be some kind of reel. Snow flurried around his ankles as Viscount Hatherton made his way carefully down the icy path to the dark-stained front door. Come […]

Lord Noble – Wendy Vella

The Marquis of Vereton entered the ballroom at a slow, steady pace, like he did most evenings. Fashionably late, Leo was in no rush to join the other guests.
