A Promise With A Price
When her sister died in childbirth, Penelope Lindon promised to care for the twin niece and nephew she adores as if they were her own. But to prove herself a reliable guardian, she also promised never to marry. How could she have known that the murder of her neighbor, the Marquess of Worthington, would bring to her door handsome Lucas Pargetter? The reformed rake is everything a lady could wish for . . . and all that Penelope cannot have if she wishes to keep her beloved charges!
An Irresistible Temptation
Once headstrong and self-indulgent, Lucas has spent the past decade atoning for his sins — something his degenerate cousin should have done. Blackguard, scoundrel, and likely an embezzler, too, his cousin made any number of enemies. Lucas never planned on investigating his cousin’s past, but it is the only way he can unmask a murderer and restore his reputation. It is perilous work for any gentleman, and for Penelope, the one lady he trusts enough to help. But soon Lucas is in another danger . . . of losing his heart to a lady and family he longs to make his own!
