The Templetons have inherited a fortune, but there’s a catch…
There Are Plenty More Dukes in the Sea
To fulfill the terms of her Grandfather’s will, Angel must perform unpaid duties as a lady’s companion for two months to the entirely unmanageable Mrs. Stone.
Two whole months of work.
What’s worse, Mrs. Stone is determined to be an even bigger handful than Angel herself.
No…what’s worse, is the lady comes along with a miserable wretch of a nephew. While she cannot deny he is handsome in that dark, brooding way so many women adore, Angel does not enjoy the company of serious men—especially when they have already declared they do not trust her one jot.
A Rake Never Changes His Spots
Lord Seth Templeton has no desire for life to change. He enjoyed every minute of his bachelor existence. Anyway, his older brother, the Marquis of Eastbrook, partakes in enough seriousness for one family. His reputation as a rake has never caused him any problems…until now.
Now, he must find a wife. And quickly.
According to the terms of the inheritance, he must be engaged within two months or forfeit his grandfather’s money—money that would save his family. Finding a wife would be easy enough for a man like Seth but he’s certainly not ready to settle down. Surely there must be a way out of this situation…?
Perhaps the uptight and ridiculously clever Miss Prudence Hartley can help him…
Once a Wallflower, Always a Wallflower
Minerva Templeton has a reputation for being, well, something of a recluse.
A wallflower, if you will.
However, due to her grandfather’s demands, all that must change. She must travel to the wilds of Scotland to fetch a mysterious something. Minerva cannot fathom why she should be the one to have to bring home this object but if she does not, their grandfather’s fortune will go to a most underserving man.
So off she sets to Scotland where she must brave all manner of awful things—things this wallflower avoids at all costs after a traumatic experience as a child.
But meeting a handsome Scotsman on her journey might not be so bad…
All’s Fair in Love and Debauchery
Theo, the Marquis of Eastbrook, has the easiest of tasks. At least the rest of his family thinks so. Return to his entailed estate and remain there for two months. It should be simple…
But he has refused to set foot there since the death of his wife.Theo will do what he must for his family. It’s just, well, he almost forgot his ward still resides there.
Lucy Jameson is all grown up. Very grown up. So much so that it is becoming distracting. Not only is she attractive but she’s determined to show him how much she’s been looking after his house. The indomitable Lucy can run a household with all the talent of a woman twice her age apparently.
Every moment around her is like torment—knowing he cannot, must not touch her.
These two months were going to be challenging enough and now they’ll be even harder knowing he’s attracted to his ward—a young woman who should definitely be off limits.
