But his inheritance has come with a price he had not foreseen… a curse that is slowly driving him mad.

A Love So Dark

Book 4 in the Dark Regency Series!

Having no fortune, a negligible reputation, and an appearance that could only be described as plain, Miss Olympia Daventry has few prospects. Unless, of course, she elects to remain in her aunt’s home dodging her uncle’s amourous advances and his sermons, both of which are dished out in equal measure. Out of desperation, she accepts an offer of marriage from a man she has never met.

Married by proxy, she travels to his home and at her first sight of it, begins to wonder if perhaps she has not made a terrible mistake. Dark, ominous, foreboding—that description fits both Darkwood Hall and her new husband, Lord Albus Griffin, Viscount Darke.

Griffin had vowed never to marry, but the terms of his meddling aunt’s will have left him no other option if he intends to preserve Darkwood Hall and the secrets it holds. But he’d instructed his solicitor to secure a wife for him that would never tempt him to consummate their union. And yet Olympia tempts him at every turn. She incites in him such lust and desire, such possessiveness, that he fears the madness that threatens all the men of his line has finally claimed him.

But there are other dangers lurking within the walls of Darkwood Hall, secrets and plots, enemies that will stop at nothing to destroy them. Tempted, torn, and tormented by wanting what he should not let himself have, Griffin is lost… but for once he is not alone.

A Passion So Strong

Book 5 in the Dark Regency Series!

When an old acquaintance asks Lord Sebastian Strong to look into the strange goings on at a remote family property, he agrees, naturally…. for a price. After all, as a younger son, he has to make his own way in the world. If that means convincing a gaggle of spinsters in the throes of senility that their ancestral home isn’t haunted, he’s game for it. But when he arrives at Evenwold Manor, the woman who greets him looks like no spinster he’s ever encountered. And the ghosts prove a great deal more real than he ever imagined. But if investigating the haunting gives him an excuse to remain in her presence, he’ll do it happily and for as long as he is able.

Lady Anne Everleigh had more problems than she knew what to do with. Between her aunts dabbling in what they liked to call the craft, and a neighbor who was a bit too zealous in his pursuit of her and his interest in the reported treasures hidden at Evenwold, she was forced to seek outside assistance. When she asked her nephew for help, she’d assumed he’d have a talk with the Squire and put him in his place. Clearly, they’d prioritized her list of problems differently as he’d sent a man to investigate the growing ghost problem at Evenwold. No, not a man. A rogue. A charming, impossibly handsome and sinfully tempting rogue. In short, he’d created an entirely new problem for her.

With her lecherous neighbor, her craft-dabbling aunts who are busily playing mystic and matchmaker by equal turns, she finds herself thrown together with Sebastian again and again. Even though she fears he will break her heart, she succumbs to temptation… but is it lust or love? And what will happen once he has the answers he came for?

A Heart So Wicked

Book 6 in the Dark Regency Series!

One youthful indiscretion has left Kit Wexford with a reputation in tatters and an unfortunate nickname—Wicked Wexford. But it was her father’s financial ruin that altered her life irrevocably and saw her scrubbing floors in her cousin’s country home. Treated worse than the servants, she tolerates the lowering existence because to do otherwise would see her brother and herself in the workhouse. But when a stranger arrives in the small village of Lofton, claiming to be the long lost heir to the late Lord Hadley, things take a turn from bad to simply strange.

Malcolm Bryant never wanted to be a Lord Anything. As an American, the rules of English high society escape him. What hasn’t escaped him are the numerous restrictions enumerated by the solicitors on the bride he must choose in order to maintain control of the late Lord Hadley’s fortune. She must be of good family. She must have local collections. She must be gently bred. They never said she had to be chaste. And after one brief, charged encounter with Miss Katherine Wexford, he knows that no one else will do. Ruined and impoverished or not, he’ll have her as his wife. Then he’ll show her just how glorious it can be to be wicked… and wanton.
