He's a sub. She's a switch.
It's not love.
It's a marriage of kink-venience.
Grayson Locke Danforth, in his wildest of dreams, never expected two things.
The first was to be recalled from India by Queen Victoria where he worked for the quiet purposes of the crown. He must now become the Duke of Warrick after the tragic deaths of his father and brothers. However, tragedy is entirely in the eyes of the beholder, and Grayson doesn’t want the title, or to return to what remains of his family. Grayson wants to remain invisible, an outcast, a man in exile for the way his body and mind behave and the secrets he needs to keep.
The second thing he never expected was to be forced into marriage to a woman from the twenty-first century.
Lulu is no mere woman, however. She’s a switch who works as a professional Dominatrix—at least, she did. When she wakes up in a strange house, a strange world, a strange body, she isn't quite sure what to think and is certain she’s dreaming. She has less than a day to gain her bearings and make a decision that will dictate the rest of her life in this world—whether or not to marry this beautiful stranger.
As Lulu and Grayson attempt to begin a life together, she discovers the true reason why this man is a stranger to his family. She can only hope she can persuade Grayson to accept who she is, and who he was born to be, before he forces her out of his life in order to maintain his well-kept secrets.
Trust doesn’t come easily to either of them, but it’s the only thing they have.
Grayson will have to give in to his need to submit in order to get his wife to open up and allow him to possess her fully in return.
It’s a cautious dance between two people who have never known how to trust, or love.
But the truth of the matter lies in the reality. Louisa must marry, to the satisfaction of her father, and so must Ellie—whose family hopes for a title to add legitimacy to their status, opening doors in the ton. And when Louisa’s father discovers them together nothing can ever be the same.
A friend rescues Louisa from a horrible fate, sending her into hiding for her own protection. For three long years, Louisa remains in exile out of fear of what her father could do.
Necessity returns Louisa to London, and as soon as she does, the memories of her beautiful Ellie haunt her. But Louisa has no idea if Ellie is even here, or unmarried, or still in want of her as Louisa is and has been since that first moment she saw her across the shimmering ballroom. Louisa fears discovering the truth of it all, that she was but a passing fancy born of the excitement of the heat of a first season.
Will she find Ellie? Will the woman still want her? And even if so, what can they do now that they couldn’t do before?
Nothing has changed, but everything is different.
TW: sexual assault
The Lady and Her Secret Lover is the seventh full-length illustrated historical romance in the Lords of Time series and is a companion novel to The Duke and The Baron.
Now all she expects is to secure her future and marry Charles, Duke of Castleberry, as arranged. But Amelia has a dangerous secret that could not only destroy her in Charles’s eyes and the eyes of society, but could also very well condemn her to Bedlam.
Baron Endsleigh, Amelia’s oldest friend, has other ideas. Ender has loved Amelia all his life. He knows her secrets, and they don’t frighten him. He plans to come between Amelia and Charles in any way he can to prevent the marriage and finally claim Amelia for his own. Though her father forbade the match years ago, Ender is determined to have her as his wife and nothing can stop him. Not even a duke as powerful as Castleberry.
That duke has hated Baron Endsleigh and wanted Amelia for, what seems to him, forever. Charles will stop at nothing to make her his, and his alone, even if that means destroying the one thing he knows she loves most in this world—Endsleigh.
Will Amelia be able to choose when one man speaks to her head and the other her heart?
None of them will find happiness until they all three learn to embrace absolute surrender.
She never thought time-travel was real. Until it happened to her...
Researching her father's journals in her spare time was the only experience Francine had with time-travel so when she's tossed back in time, she regrets she didn't pay more attention to the past... of course that's only after she finally admits to herself that she has been tossed into another world, much like a Victorian freaky-Friday.
The first thing Francine had to reconcile was that a woman in Victorian England was a commodity. She's owned. Francine was no longer the powerful business woman she'd been only moments ago and on top of it all she's being chased b a man who wants her dead, or worse.
Her only chance for safety lies in Gideon Trumbull the lionhearted—but evasive—duke who discovered her, terrified, running for her life, at the edge of his lands.
What began as a compulsion to learn anything she could about him turned into an urgent need and she found herself in an inescapable new reality—a world in which she doesn't belong.
Meanwhile... Gideon's brother Perry has likewise been caught up in an incident. Finding a stowaway housemaid in his carriage as he's bound for London will be the most life-changing moment of his life.
She plots to seduce the rake who refuses to touch her.
Propriety be damned.
Getting him to teach her what love is... seemed like just the right challenge to sooth her damaged soul. Until the man who chased Francine sets his sites on someone much more accessible.
The entire Trumbull family comes together to protect the women they've accepted into the fold in the first installment in the Trumbull Family Saga, The Rake and The Recluse.
I couldn’t stay behind and watch my best friend, my lover, marry someone else. A someone that could never be me.
His mother’s determination to have him coupled and raising babes has always been exhausting but now that we’re all of an age it’s become downright obsessive.
I thought it would be easier to leave.
The discovery of someone long thought dead set me on a path of terror and pain. One I may recover from physically, but mentally… that’s something else altogether.
Coming home to Quinn and Celeste is different now, it feels impossible.
But finding a home with them would be the first step to healing.
Thorne Magnus Calder, heir to the Duke of St. Cyr is in love with Quintin Joseph Wyntor and watching him court the lovely Lady Alain was a pain so visceral he quit London for India.
Lord Quintin Joseph Wyntor's heart has always belonged to Calder—as it always will—but a relationship with another man is a crime neither of them wishes to face much less own up to.
The passion they have for each other leaves them reeling with helplessness as they suffer in their separation.
When Lady Alain forced Quinn to accept that his love for Calder could not be denied, Calder and Quinn begin to realize that the risks they face together might not be as perilous as attempting to survive without each other.
Can the two men defy the odds, ignore the threat of discovery, and find a place in their lives for each other and Celeste?
George James Madoc Danforth is the heir to The Warrick—unbeknownst to all the British Empire, including the Queen herself.
When Madoc is resurrected, he expects coming back to London to be with a modicum of pomp and circumstance. The actual return, however, is far from that.
Commanded to make amends with his family, Madoc is thrust under the title his father carried, the one his brother held while Madoc was believed dead. The last thing Mads needs right now is attention.
So when a woman walks into his life, falls into his arms, and has nowhere to go, Madoc is forced to reevaluate everything he knows.
Lost in time, Willow finds herself at the mercy of a man who terrifies her in all the best ways. While she struggles to accept herself, her place in his life and his world, she fights to reconcile that everything she knew to be true was somehow not, and everything she holds dear now may not be hers forever.
Can she trust him enough to show him who she truly is? Who she's always been, no matter where or when?
Suddenly, all of Madoc's priorities have changed and the only thing that matters to him... is her.
Until she saw them...
Lady Alain needs a husband, and Quintin Wyntor will do just fine.
She plans to offer him a mutual agreement of respect and independence, something any bachelor in England would be happy for.
But she didn't know his mistress would be a mister.
When she sees them together something is stirred.
Desire is ignited.
But she still doesn't want to be touched.
When Calder leaves the country, Quinn is devastated.
He decides to explore his feelings for Celeste to ease his broken heart but in one unchecked moment of passion, mutual need spins out of control and marriage is the only way to protect her.
Celeste knows that Quinn was meant for Calder, but she can't deny the way she feels and neither can he.
This book is the story of Celeste and has her happily for now.
It is also the beginning of Calder and Quinn's story which is continued in THE SPARE AND THE HEIR.
The second is the man I’m contracted to marry, have been forever, or so it seems.
The problem is I can’t live without Ender. He grounds me, understands me, he helps me when nobody else can.
But Charles—Jacks… he has no intention of sharing me with another, friendship or otherwise. And Charles… he makes my head spin. I can’t seem to control myself around him and since I have such a hard time staying grounded to begin with…
Well… that’s my dilemma.
Amelia is to be my wife. I don't like that there's a discussion about this, but here we are. I also don't like that the discussion includes another man and yet... here we are. I want her. I've always wanted her. She will be my wife, no matter what I have to do... or who I have to deal with. I will deal with it.
Jacks doesn't understand her, he doesn't, He doesn't know why she acts the way she does or how to help her when she falls into a place that seems so terrifying from the outside that I can't imagine what it's like for her on the inside. I love Amelia. I always have, and I always thought we would end up together, I thought— wrongly, apparently—that Jacks would give up. But he didn't. He's here in London to claim his rights under the years-old contract their father's bartered for her hand. And it doesn't look like he'll relent. So I'll have to walk away and lose her forever, unless we can find another way, the three of us, to make this work.
That would be fine except that my family wishes me to marry, to get me out of their home and under someone else’s responsibility.
I met a man, Quinn, who may be amenable. He’s nice enough on the dance floor. We would suit well enough. I decided to follow him one night, to find out if he has a mistress and see if he’d be amenable to an arrangement of sorts.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d discover that his mistress… is a mister.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think seeing them together would arouse me in ways I never knew possible.
Now I have a problem because I won’t come between them, not ever, not for anything. A love like that deserves to be together. And yet… I want for something I never wanted before… could there be another way?
My family wants me to find a wife. It's my brother's fault really because he's behaving badly. Mother wants a nice marriage, to a nice girl. The problem with that is that I'm already in love with someone else. We could never be married though, it just isn't possible.
So I dance with my friend Celeste, to protect her from the vultures who want her for her money. She would make a lovely wife, to someone who wants to be a husband. The thing is... I really like her, she's lovely and so brilliant. And when she discovers my secret she's the only person I can talk to about the pain he's left behind.
But something else happens in his absence, nothing we'd planned, nothing I could have foreseen... and now that Celeste and I have become so much closer the only thing left to do is to figure out how to reconcile that with the one truth I've known my whole life... that I can not live without Calder.
Possibly everything up until that point as well.
My name is Madoc, and I’ve been ordered to return to London and take up the title which was given to my younger brother, Grayson, in my absence.
I’ve also been ordered to make amends with my family. Impossible.
Until she comes along.
It was my fault really, scaring the wits out of her to the point she fainted. But I cannot in good conscience abandon her to the dark of London. I have to find who she belongs to…
The problem is… I want her and the only way to protect her is to send her away.
There's nobody in my life. No family, no friends. I don't seem to be on the same wavelength as other people, there's just something about me, something that keeps me from clicking with others. It's fine (at least that's what I tell myself) because I looove my work. I'm a researcher and I get obsessed with falling down rabbit holes. Love it. Until I fall down the wrong one and this Alice in Wonderland story becomes so much more than I'm prepared for.
The man who rescues me, kidnaps me, takes me, terrorizes me... it's all semantics when faced with what I feel. Like a lock finding its key. I'll allow him anything, almost. I won't allow him to hide from me, and I won't allow him to walk away when I know... I KNOW... that he feels the same way.
I may be a lowly housemaid and he a powerful viscount but I plan to seduce this rake who refuses to touch me.
Propriety be damned.
Getting him to teach me what love is seems like just the right challenge to soothe my damaged soul. I know this is a dangerous proposition. He's powerful, beautiful, and has the heart of a true hero... and I'm afraid that once we're in London leaving him will be the hardest thing I've ever done.
My brother is the one. Not me. My brother. He's the one who has to marry, has to procreate but me? My life is my own for the most part... at least it had been, until my brother met the woman of his dreams and managed to ruin one in the process. So I left. I left his home, I left the my charges, I left everyone behind to return to London and get my life back.
I didn't make it far though. Lilly has stowed away in my carriage, and I'm in the worst dilemma of my life. The things she wants... the things she demands of me... I can not. But her need for this, her need to feel something, and her want for it to be me— it does something to me. I can't touch her, but I can't stay away from her.
Now I have to figure out how to let her go, because she deserves so much more than a rake like me.
