In this sizzling Regency romance by Charlie Lane, a cheerful viscount would
rather have the grumpy chaperone than the daring debutante. If only the
latter didn’t prove to be quite so resistible.

After the woman he loves rejects his marriage proposal, Edmund Crenshaw,
Viscount Escher, has sworn off women. If he can’t marry Mrs. Katherine
Brighton, he’ll marry no one. When he discovers a daring debutante in
his coach, intent on seduction, he’ll do anything to protect his
bachelorhood. He must remain uncompromised or doom himself and the lady to a
loveless marriage. Because his heart always has, and always will, belong to
only one woman—his Kat.

Katherine must escape her younger sister’s insidious grasp. This
Season, she has a heart of steel and a plan for independence. As the secret
author of a popular out-of-print book, she will convince the publisher to
reprint it and fill her coffers with funds enough to live on her own. The
publisher agrees—if she writes a new book as well. But with every
moment of her day spent helping her sister, she desperately needs a
muse.

And Lord Escher, the man whose marriage proposal she reluctantly rejected
two years ago, sparks her imagination like no one else. To write her book,
she must stay near Edmund. In exchange, he requires her help ridding himself
of a persistent miss. They’ll solve both problems in no time. If they
can keep their hands off each other.

Can she protect her heart and her freedom, or will the cheerful viscount
tempt her to say yes this second time around?

This enemies-to-lovers Regency romance by Charlie Lane, shows what happens
when sparks fly between a flirty second son of a duke and an
inventor’s daughter.

 

She’s risen like a Cinderella.

He’s more charming than any prince.

They shouldn’t be together, but fate can’t resist.

 

A new year and a new Season means a new Lillian Clarke. She’s
transformed herself from wallflower to incomparable. But she’s no
Cinderella. She’s washed her hands of love and of Lord Devon, her own
charming prince who barely knew she existed. She’d rather be the fairy
godmother, helping invisible debutantes gain the attention they deserve on
the marriage mart. But even though she’s booted Lord Devon from her
heart, he’s not done with her. His sudden appearance at her home and
inexplicable teasing threaten to distract her from her debutante
dreams.

 

Lord Devon, the second son of duke, has put self-pity and scandal behind
him and found a new purpose. He’ll invent a machine that improves
coffee, buy a coffeehouse, and be a self-made man. He’s determined to
be more than the heir’s spare, privileged but kept in case of
emergency. Unfortunately, he needs the assistance of Miss Clarke’s
brilliant father. And he hates Lillian Clarke for speaking the truth about
him. The delectable woman thinks she’s better than him. He’ll
teach her she’s not. If he can ignore the way her courage makes him
smile.

 

When sparks in the workshop fly, Lillian and Devon invent a passion
that’s more than they bargained for and complicate their paths to
happily ever after.

Publisher: WOLF Publishing

In this friends-to-lovers Regency romance by Charlie Lane, an independent lady and a cautious earl must do the most daring thing of all—fall in love.

 

A daring lady.

A caring earl.

And a Christmas house party that turns love into a dangerous game.

The Earl of Abbington is not a daring man.

Responsible for the care of an opium-addicted uncle, George’s life poses dangers to a bride that he’ll never risk. It’s why he avoided the independent and kind Lady Jane last year, despite her brother’s request he protect her during her season. His neglect no doubt led to Jane’s tattered reputation. In reparation, he’s sent pre-approved suitors to the house party to ensure she marries well, not to a man whose life is a nightmare.

Lady Jane is done being daring.

Her daring spirit ruined her reputation, her family’s social standing, and her brother’s marital prospects. But a Christmas house party attended by a coterie of willing suitors can put everything right. Plain of face and ordinary of intellect, Jane knows she’ll never find love. And she doesn’t want it anyway. Love is the most daring thing a woman can do, after all. Instead, she’ll develop a system to test her suitors and discover the best husband for a practical sort of marriage.

Jane needs George’s help choosing a husband, but George soon realizes he can’t give it without betraying his own heart. Together, they must find the courage to face the dangers of love or lose the love of a lifetime.

In this Regency romance by Charlie Lane, a London season of scandalous dares forces a lady and her duke to see that perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

A redheaded bluestocking in desperate need of a wealthy husband.

A handsome duke looking for the perfect duchess.

And a dare that shows that opposites may not only attract but can be so much more.

Lady Tabitha Hampton has the memory of an elephant. Her sharp brain locks everything away tight as a trunk in an attic. But this talent fails to help the twenty-seven-year-old bluestocking attract the attention of a single wealthy suitor. And she needs one. With three sisters of marriageable age, a sickly father, and a series of bad investments draining their dowries, Tabitha’s marriage could save or ruin her entire family.

The Duke of Collingford needs a wife, but not just any one will do. Arthur’s future duchess must be perfect in every way—fair of face, impeccable manners, with enough social influence to impact his parliamentary projects. When he joins the whirl of the London season, the duke finds an insufferable, redheaded wallflower instead.

Tabitha insists she can be the perfect duchess, if he’ll only give her the chance. Arthur agrees to test her abilities, but she tests his control. And one taste of her lips is enough to make him embrace chaos.

Opposites may attract, but can they cooperate? Or will they lose everything, including their hearts?

Leave a Widow Wanting More cover

 

  Books 1, Cavendish Family Chronicles

Historical Romance (steamy)

 

Date Published: August 26, 2021

A penniless widow. A baron running from love. Will a marriage of convenience save them or tear them apart?

Widow Sarah Pennington has no time for love. Sending a son to Harrow is not cheap, and her husband’s lies left them in poverty. When she loses her position at the bookshop, she knows marriage isn’t the answer. Only her own hard work will save the day.

It seems Baron Eaden can’t love a woman without her dying. To keep his daughters, and his heart, safe, he roams the world, keeping his distance. But when his hunt for a rare book brings him back to London, he knows he must do the one thing he’s avoided for years—find them a mother. He needs a woman who’s up to the challenge, not one to fall in love with. Because he’s vowed never to make that mistake again.

The determined, lovely-eyed widow in the bookshop challenges Henry in every way. She’s exactly who his daughters need. But she’d rather have the book he’s after than his hand in marriage.

A marriage of convenience could save Sarah and her son, but when she finds passion in the baron’s arms, she realizes security isn’t enough. She wants Henry’s heart. If he can find the courage to trust her with it.

 

 

Excerpt

Sarah stopped their progress and pulled away from him. Twisting her hands in front of her, she watched her son walk farther ahead then drew in a breath, and seemed to conquer whatever ailed her. Henry enjoyed watching the process of her gathering fortitude for whatever it was she was about to say.

Did you truly come back to issue a third proposal of marriage?”

You know I have.”

She smirked. “Third time’s the charm?”

No. That suggests luck. Luck doesn’t obtain much of anything important. I’ve come prepared this time.” He resisted looking toward James. He kept his eyes pinned on hers. “The first time I proposed I did so on a moment’s whim. The second time, I’d determined that my whim was logical and correct, but I was not in the best of states to make a persuasive argument.”

She eyed him from boots to hat. “And you are in a better state now?” she asked.

While James had been fitted for new clothes, Henry had returned to Steven’s for a bath and a shave. He knew he didn’t make a shabby picture.

I believe I am prepared.” Henry stepped closer and untwisted Mrs. Pennington’s hands. Folding them in his own, he said, “Mrs. Pennington, we just met yesterday, but I believe we have much to offer one another. I’ll not repeat those arguments I made yesterday. You know them as well as I. Instead, I’ll say what I did not and should have.”

He’d not said words like he was about to say to any woman in over five years, and he’d never said them to anyone on so short an acquaintance. But they must be said. They were true, he found, despite it all. He reached a hand to her temple where a curl had escaped her simple chignon.

I think you’re exquisite,” he said. “I think you’re smart. I think you’re brave. I think there’s no woman in England I’d rather marry half as much as you.”

She blinked several times. Her mouth parted slightly. Her chest rose and fell faster than it had moments before.

I have one more argument, and it may be my most persuasive yet.”

Oh?”

He snaked his arm around her waist and pulled her against his chest. He dipped his head until their noses touched. “Always put your best argument last.” His lips brushed hers before sinking in to drink long and full. The kiss was to him like water to the desert-lost soul. Her soft curves pushed against his chest, her long, strong back beneath his fingertips, all overwhelmed his senses.

When her hands flattened against his chest, flexed, then roamed upward to wind around his neck, he moaned, then parted her lips with his tongue to drink of her more deeply.

She let him make a spectacle of them both in the street until he was convinced, completely and utterly, of her answer. He grinned in their kiss, pulling away to view her flushed face.

Well?” he asked. “Are you persuaded?” He needed to hear her say it. Yes.

Her hands still curled around his neck, and she stood on tiptoe, leaning against him. Her body resting against his for balance, for stability, felt like perfection. Better than the hot Egyptian sun. Better than a soft bed or warm bath. Better than being back at Cavendish Manor.

She smiled, bit her lip. He knew what her smile meant. It meant victory.
