$FREE on 12/29/2021 – Falling for a Rake by Eve Pendle

He's the most notorious rake in England. She's a Perfect Lady. Their secrets will come tumbling out. . .

A sexy opposites attract fake engagement romance!

Lady Emily can't afford a scandal. Her sister's debut is just weeks away and she has her pteridology group to safeguard. It's bad enough to be stuck in a hole overnight with Lord Markshall, and worse to have kissed him. Marriage is unthinkable. But newspaper hearsay on their “frolics and fernication” after a fern hunting accident puts everything she's worked for in jeopardy.

Lord Markshall's whole political career is based on manipulation and disguise. Lady Emily's polite insults are just the thing to prove to himself, and everyone else, that he's still an unworthy rake. He wants her desperately, but even a fake engagement is too good for him.

With Emily's sister's debut and a major political vote coming up, their reputations-good and bad-have never been more critical. The newspaper gossip is edging toward the truth, threatening to incinerate everything they hold dear. Can they understand, accept, and love each other, before it's too late?

$FREE on 2/20/2020 – The Wild Child by Mary Jo Putney 1

A mad heiress and a false fiancé…

The younger son of an earl, Dominic Renbourne is offered an irresistible bribe by his arrogant, identical twin brother, Kyle, who is heir to the earldom. All he must do is take Kyle's place at Warfield Manor, where he is to politely court Lady Meriel Grahame, the orphaned and vastly wealthy heiress Kyle is pledged to marry. The deception need only take a few weeks and no one will be the wiser because the fey Lady Meriel lives in a world of her own. The last thing Dominic expects when he arrives is to be entranced by a silent sylph whose ethereal beauty is as stunning as her passionate love for Warfield's flowers and fields and creatures.

Until now, Meriel has kept her distance from normal society, spending her days at one with nature and safe from the nightmare that nearly destroyed her as a child. She is content to live alone, until the handsome intruder begins to inspire dreams of the world beyond her sanctuary. He understands her as no one else ever has–and because she lives outside society's rules, she sees no need to restrain her desire for the man who is surely her destined mate.

Though Dominic’s sense of duty helps him control his longing for his brother’s future bride, Meriel’s untamed spirit proves more powerful than he can resist. In her garden paradise, passion binds them body and soul despite the agonizing consequences.

Can Meriel forgive Dominic's deceit once she learns he is not Kyle, and can Kyle forgive the betrayal of the brother who had once been closer than his own shadow? Then past and present collide in a dangerous cataclysm that may bring destruction–or lasting love and a hope for beginnings.

Book One of the saga of the oldest, continuous hereditary monarchy in the world, the 2600 years old, Chrysanthemum Throne of Japan, “The Goddesses of Japan” is a history-based book, narrated entirely by unsung heroines—goddess, sovereign, mother, wife, warrior, lover—all who enact in the forefront, or move in the background, to influence the fate of the country, changing forever the fabric of its society.

The deities Izanami and Izanagi are appointed Creators of the New World—the Land of the Rising Sun. A beautiful relationship of love develops between them during the Creation phase, but fate sadly sets them apart forever. Their offspring fight for hegemony over the land and Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess emerges victorious. Her descendants become the rulers of the new world and found the legendary Yamato Dynasty.

Although, throughout antiquity alliances are forged with powerful aristocratic families in order to survive treachery and rivalries, with the emergence of the Samurai class, the Imperial House loses grip on state affairs and the country is engulfed in brutal civil wars. The sword becomes law and the strong feed on the weak in a dynamic interchange of power, where there is always one who is yet stronger than the strongest. Stealth agents, Ninja, enter the scene, worsening the situation, yet help the process of reunification of the country.

Christianity is introduced to the country. At the height of its power, it has tamed the natives of the American continent, subjugated the Philippines and terrorises Europe with the Inquisition.

Is Japan going to be its next conquest?
