Satisfaction
by Thea Devine

They were adventurers and the closest of friends—until the day Hugo Galliard deserted Edmund Renbrook in South Africa, robbing him forever of his diamonds, his woman, and his future. Now, years later, a son and daughter will meet to settle the score, using every bit of sensual cunning at their disposal...

Everything She Believed...

Wild, beautiful, unwilling to bend to anyone's rules, Jancie Renbrook is governed by one overwhelming desire: to make Lujan Galliard want her, marry her, and serve as the instrument of her father's revenge. But life at the Galliard manor proves a treacherous den of iniquity, where Jancie is coveted by many, and the only man who could prove her ally is Lujan himself...

Everything He Desired...

Lujan Galliard has cut quite a swath through the gambling dens and whorehouses of London. But at least he's an honest rakehell, unlike his father who masquerades as a gentleman while gazing at Jancie as if she were a ripe piece of fruit for the taking. Not that Lujan believes for a moment that the girl is an innocent come to care for his dying mother. The only way to uncover her scheme—and thwart his father—is to seduce and marry her. But a taste of what he hungers for proves more tempting than Lujan can resist...and soon, he wants Jancie body and soul...

Everything Has Its Price

Blinded by vengeance, trapped by uncontrollable passion, two lovers have become pawns in a dangerous game of sin and secrets, and the only way out is to surrender to a love neither is ready to trust...



Thea Devine's Bio

She’s the author whose books defined erotic historical romance. Romantic Times calls her “The Queen of Erotic Romance,” Affaire de Coeur: “… the divine mistress of sensual writing …” She’s Thea Devine (yes, it’s her real name), and she’s the author of 18 steamy historical romances (with three more to come), as well as contributing novellas to Kensington Books’ USA Today best-selling erotic historical romance anthologies, CAPTIVATED, FASCINATED, and TAKEN BY SURPRISE. She’s also written a handful of sexy contemporary romantic novellas for Kensington and Leisure Books, and she made her debut in full-length contemporary romance in 1999 with NIGHT MOVES, for Harlequin Temptation “Blaze”. She lives and works in Connecticut (and summers in Maine), but more to the point, she really lives that secret life readers sometimes think she does: for the past twenty years, she’s also been a professional manuscript reader. She was married to John and after 50 years of love and companionship, her husband passed away in December 2016, and has two grown sons, Michael and Thomas; and two sister felines, Charlotte and Emily Bronte Cat; and two dogs: mini-doxie Midgie, who recently joined the family; and the headstrong, stubborn and wilful black lab, Maggie, who has, Thea says, all the qualities of a good heroine.
