Two scandalous brides…
Two rogues who won’t be denied…
His Bride for the Taking by NYT Bestselling author Tessa Dare
It’s the first rule of friendship among gentlemen: Don’t even think about touching your best friend’s sister. But Sebastian, Lord Byrne, has never been one for rules. He’s thought about touching Mary Clayton—a lot—and struggled to resist temptation. But when Mary’s bridegroom leaves her waiting at the altar, only Sebastian can save her from ruin. By marrying her himself.
In eleven years, he’s never laid a finger on his best friend’s sister. Now he’s going to take her with both hands. To have, to hold…and to love.
His Duchess for a Day by USA Today Bestseller Christi Caldwell
It was never meant to be…
That’s what Elizabeth Terry has told herself while trying to forget the man she married–her once best friend. Passing herself off as a widow, Elizabeth has since built a life for herself as an instructor at a finishing school, far away from that greatest of mistakes. But the past has a way of finding you, and now that her husband has found her, Elizabeth must face the man she’s tried to forget.
It was time to right a wrong…
Crispin Ferguson, the Duke of Huntington, has spent the past years living with regret. The young woman he married left without a by-your-leave, and his hasty elopement had devastating repercussions. Despite everything, Crispin never stopped thinking about Elizabeth. Now that he’s found her, he has one request—be his duchess, publicly, just for a day.
Can spending time together as husband and wife rekindle the bond they once shared? Or will a shocking discovery tear them apart…this time, forever?
His for the Taking by Tessa Dare
A code of honor – never, ever make a move on your best friend’s sister. Sebastian, Lord Byrne, has lived by that code from the moment he met Mary Clayton. Even with the death of her brother the most Sebastian has done is make sure she is protected. Now with Mary alone at the altar he offers marriage in name only to protect her from ruin and a life of spinsterhood.
Mary Clayton has now been left at the altar twice; though she cannot be sad about it. When her deceased brother’s friend, who she has known since childhood, offers her his name to keep her from being ruined she must decide between a spinster’s life, a marriage in name only, or fighting for a true marriage.
Can Sebastian keep his vow of a marriage in name only or will Mary’s temptation bring her what she really wants?
A sense of honor, a woman who knows what she wants, a little subterfuge and a happily ever after tale from the talented Tessa Dare.
His Duchess for a Day by Christi Caldwell
Elizabeth Terry has spent 10 years trying to convince herself that she’s better off without Crispin Ferguson. While being an instructor at a finishing school is not what she envisioned her life to be she knows she’s better off there than tied to a man who thinks of her as a mistake.
Crispin Ferguson, Duke of Huntington, has spent 10 years looking for the wife who broke his heart. A chance encounter soon leads Crispin to his runaway bride and he requests she briefly join him to prove to the ton that she exists; then she can go back to the life she has.
As the two get to know each other again certain facts come to light; facts that are the crux of their separation. Can these two regain what they had or will outside forces continue to keep them apart.
I absolutely adore Crispin and Elizabeth! As always Christi Caldwell writes a tale full of heartbreak and happiness rolled together with characters you root for and others you want to slap.
