A Stolen Kiss . . .
Daring Lavinia Peyton is devoted to the cause of rescuing women from the world's oldest profession. But when she succeeds in convincing three of the Earl of Weston's mistresses to abandon the life, it has little to do with reform and everything to do with revenge. An empty love nest is exactly what the faithless rake deserves after breaking her sister's heart . . . or so Lavinia thinks until a chance meeting with the devilishly attractive earl ends with a smoldering kiss. Suddenly Lavinia is in real danger of forgetting just who Lord Weston is . . . a threat to her heart.
A Purloined Heart . . .
After losing three mistresses in as many months, Ranson Baldwin, eighth Earl of Weston, is ready to swear off women entirely. Unfortunately, he cannot, for he has agreed to help the Home Office rid England of Lord Hayley, who is suspected of the darkest crimes. To gather evidence of Hayley's wrongdoing, Ranson needs a mistress to help him infiltrate the lord's next Cyprian house party. Yet when Ranson goes searching for the right courtesan, he instead meets the woman of his dreams. Lavinia Peyton is alluring, intriguing — and strangely disapproving. He aches to impress her. But honor demands that Ranson risk everything to bring a blackguard to justice, even if it costs him the only woman he could ever love.
