Denise expected some surprises on Finding Mr. Right, but she’s beyond shocked to meet the last contestant: Brody. She doesn’t know whether to feel punk’d, pissed, or relieved. Yet as a series of hot hijinks and dueling bachelors ensues, Denise can’t deny he’s The One—and always has been. She knows she’ll have to come clean about their past to the show’s other contestants—and to Brody. But once she tells him the real reason she played the runaway bride, Brody may be the one to walk. Is honesty a risk she’s brave enough to take?. . .

But those answers will have to wait because now Donnie and his new fiancé, Angie have gone missing. And with the authorities in on the search, the lines between right and wrong begin to blur as Elise becomes determined to do whatever it takes to find the young couple. Which includes teaming up with Angie’s handsome brother, whose own secrets and unexpected kisses are turning Elise’s carefully aligned world upside down.

Focused, professional, disciplined, there’s good reason Marc Ruiz is considered one of the top Secret Service agents around. And while he has spent his career dedicated to the protection of world and national leaders, his latest operation is hitting a little too close to home — tracking down his sister and her new fiancé who have are not only being chased down by federal agents, but a team of criminals hell bent on revenge.

Add a sizzling attraction to a brainy and beautiful attorney into the mix and Marc soon realizes that playing outside the rules may be the only way to keep them all safe.

A Taste of Seduction On Sale Now

The flames of desire fuel a torrid reunion as bestselling author Bronwen Evans returns with another captivating novel of the Disgraced Lords. See why Jen McLaughlin raves, “Bronwen’s historical romances always make the top of my reading list!”

Lady Evangeline Stuart chose to wed a tyrant with a title, or so society believes. That was five years ago—five long years that she could have spent with her first and only love: Lord Hadley Fullerton, the second son of the Duke of Claymore. Now Evangeline is a widow, and her soul cries out for Hadley. But when they see each other at last, everything has changed. The passion in his eyes has been corrupted by betrayal. Somehow Evangeline must regain Hadley’s trust—without revealing the secret that would spoil the seduction.

Hadley is determined not to be distracted by Evangeline. He and the other Libertine Scholars are in pursuit of an enemy who has been striking at them from the shadows, and Evangeline’s mere presence could be dangerous. But with one smile, one touch, one taste of Evangeline’s lips, Hadley’s resolve is overpowered by far more pleasant memories. As the two enter into a discreet affair, Hadley vows to give her his body, never his heart. That, she will have to earn.
