Brilliant scholar Genevieve Barrett knows how to keep a secret. Her identity as the author of her father's academic articles has always been her greatest deception-until a charming housebreaker tries to steal the mysterious Harmsworth Jewel from her. She doesn't reveal that she recognizes her father's devastatingly handsome new student as the thief himself. For Genevieve, this will be the most seductive secret of all...
To Catch a Thief
Sir Richard Harmsworth has been living a lie, maintaining a rakish facade to show society that he doesn't care about his status as a bastard. Yet long haunted by his unknown father's identity, Richard believes the Harmsworth Jewel will confirm his claim as the rightful heir. But when Richard sets out to seduce the bookworm who possesses the stone, he instead falls for its beautiful owner.

Deb Marlowe

Deb Marlowe adores History, England and Men in Boots. Clearly she was destined to write Regency Historical Romance. A Golden Heart Award winner and Rita nominee, Deb grew up in Pennsylvania with her nose in a book. Luckily, she'd read enough romances to recognize the true modern hero she met at a college Halloween party--even though he wore a tuxedo t-shirt instead of breeches and boots. They married, settled in North Carolina and produced two handsome, intelligent and genuinely amusing boys. Though she spends much of her time with her nose in her laptop, for the sake of her family she does occasionally abandon her inner world for the domestic adventure of laundry, dinner and carpool. Despite her sacrifice, not one of the men in her family is yet willing to don breeches or tall boots. She's working on it. Deb is a Director of the Raleigh/Durham satellite of Lady Jane's Salon. She blogs at The Lady Scribes. You can talk books, movies, TV, recipes, kids and more with her on Facebook or Twitter.

The Earl, a Girl and a Promise

When a nearly naked woman crashes into his arms, Paul, the new Earl of Latterly, knows he's left his monk-like world behind. Raised apart from females by his misogynist father, Paul hardly knows how to speak with the delightful girl who's dashed out of the dance hall. But in a single night's tryst, they discover a passion he's long denied himself. Yet to his dismay, he learns Emma is the adopted sister of the very man he seeks. The true heir to the earldom, Paul's ne'er-do-well cousin.

Although she's tried to escape her free-loving mother's reputation, Emma consents to one night of lust...for a price. But as her heart falls for the stranger, she forgoes payment and flees into the night--only to find Paul on her doorstep again, seeking her brother. And offering an inheritance that will change her family's lives forever.

Her rapscallion brother needs training to blend with the ton, and Paul needs Emma's help. Fear of becoming his eccentric father makes Paul skittish, and Emma's outré family keeps the waters well-churned. But as Paul fulfills his promise to reveal the true heir, he and Emma must forge a new path to love. Before their pasts rob them of true happiness.

 Sandra Schwab

Sandra Schwab started writing her first novel when she was seven years old. Thirty years later, telling stories is still her greatest passion, even though by now she has exchanged her old fountain pen with pink hearts for a computer keyboard (black, no hearts). She lives in a suburb of Frankfurt on the Main, Germany, with a sketchbook, a sewing machine, and altogether too many books.

(A Love for Every Season #1)

Caught between duty ...
George Augustus Griffin, Viscount Chanderley has to marry - fast: His father has ordered him to find a suitable wife this very season. Alas, the only woman Griff has eyes for is the very unsuitable Miss Carlotta Stanton, who is not only unbecomingly tall but also wears the ugliest spectacles in all of England. Still, Griff is utterly bewitched by her intense green eyes. Yet however much he feels drawn to her joie de vivre, duty and honor demand that he stay far away from Miss Stanton.

...and desire...
Dubbed "the Giantess" because of her unfortunate height, Charlie Stanton finds the London season far less glamorous than she had thought it would be - not the least because she is consigned a place among the wallflowers. But then she becomes acquainted with the very dashing Lord Chanderley, whose life is overshadowed by a terrible tragedy in his past. Ever ready to help others, Charlie is determined to rid him of his Sad Melancholia - even if it means taking on wild boars and highwaymen. However, the biggest challenge might be the elusive viscount himself and his belief that he is beyond all redemption.
