‘I loved it’ Eloisa James
‘Smart, sexy, and always romantic’ Julia Quinn
For a smart, witty and passionate historical romance, I recommend anything by Sarah MacLean’ Lisa Kleypas

The Lady’s Plan . . .

When Lady Henrietta Sedley declares her twenty-ninth year ‘The Year of Hattie’, she has plans. Plans to inherit her father’s business, to make her own fortune and finally to experience a taste of the pleasure she’ll forgo as a confirmed spinster. She does not, however, plan to find the most beautiful man she’s ever seen tied up in her carriage and threatening to ruin The Year of Hattie before it’s even begun.

The Bastard’s Proposal . . .

After waking in a carriage at Hattie’s feet, Whit – a king of Covent Garden known to all the world as Beast – can’t help but wonder about the strange woman who frees him, especially when he discovers her plans for a night of pleasure. He is more than happy to offer Hattie all she desires . . . for a price.

An Unexpected Passion . . .

Soon, Hattie and Whit find themselves rivals in business and pleasure: she won’t give up her plans; he won’t give up his power . . . but if they’re not careful, they’ll have no choice but to give up everything, including their hearts.
