Pride and Premeditation (Jane Austen Murder Mystery, #1)

Perfect for fans of the Lady Janies and Stalking Jack the Ripper, the first book in the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries series is a clever retelling of Pride and Prejudice that reimagines the iconic settings, characters, and romances in a thrilling and high stakes whodunit.

When a scandalous murder shocks London high society, seventeen year old aspiring lawyer Lizzie Bennet seizes the opportunity to prove herself, despite the interference of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the stern young heir to the prestigious firm Pemberley Associates.

Convinced the authorities have imprisoned the wrong person, Lizzie vows to solve the murder on her own. But as the case—and her feelings for Darcy—become complicated, Lizzie discovers that her dream job could make her happy, but it might also get her killed.

To Love and to Loathe (The Regency Vows, #2)

The widowed Diana, Lady Templeton and Jeremy, Marquess of Willingham are infamous among English high society as much for their sharp tongued bickering as their flirtation. One evening, an argument at a ball turns into a serious wager: Jeremy will marry within the year or Diana will forfeit one hundred pounds. So shortly after, just before a fortnight long house party at Elderwild, Jeremy’s country estate, Diana is shocked when Jeremy appears at her home with a very different kind of proposition.

After his latest mistress unfavorably criticized his skills in the bedroom, Jeremy is looking for reassurance, so he has gone to the only woman he trusts to be totally truthful. He suggests that they embark on a brief affair while at the house party—Jeremy can receive an honest critique of his bedroom skills and widowed Diana can use the gossip to signal to other gentlemen that she is interested in taking a lover.

Diana thinks taking him up on his counter proposal can only help her win her wager. With her in the bedroom and Jeremy’s marriage minded grandmother, the formidable Dowager Marchioness of Willingham, helping to find suitable matches among the eligible ladies at Elderwild, Diana is confident her victory is assured. But while they’re focused on winning wagers, they stand to lose their own hearts.

With Martha Waters’s signature “cheeky charm and wonderfully wry wit” (Booklist, starred review), To Love and to Loathe is another clever and delightful historical rom com that is perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Evie Dun.

It's October 1814. The war with France is finally over and Europe's diplomats are convening in Vienna for a conference that will put their world back together.

But before he could be brought to trial, Williams hanged himself in his cell. The murders ceased, and London slowly began to breathe easier.

Pym's colleagues are convinced his manner of death is a coincidence, but Sebastian has his doubts. The he looks into the three year old murders, the certain he becomes that the hapless John Williams was not the real killer.

But the harder he tries to convince her, the she realizes that there is something she wants from him: She wants everything. And she’ll have to crack the frozen shell he’s made of his heart to get it.

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches, #6)

A fake engagement and plenty of charm keep the pages turning in this delightful Regency romance.

I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord.

Miss Abigail Abbott desperately needs to disappear, and the only person she trusts to help her do that is Lord Stephen Wentworth, heir to the Duke of Walden. Stephen is brilliant, charming, and—when he needs to be—absolutely ruthless. So ruthless, that, he proposes marriage instead of a pretense of murder, to keep Abigail safe.

Stephen knows that Abigail has the dignity and determination of a duchess and the courage of a lioness. When she accepts his courtship of convenience, he also discovers she kisses like his most intimate wish come true. For Abigail, their arrangement is a sham to escape her dangerous enemies. For Stephen, it's his last, best hope to share a lifetime with the lady of his dreams—if he can convince her his love is real.

A Wicked Bargain for the Duke (Hazards of Dukes, #3)

The author of the “sparkling” and “steamy” (Entertainment Weekly) Never Kiss a Duke returns with the delightful third book in the Hazards of Dukes series as a rigid duke meets his match in a rebellious lady.

Thaddeus, the new Duke of Hasford, holds his new title reluctantly, but his sense of duty is strong. Task number one: find a wife and secure an heir.

Only Lavinia demands passion, and Thaddeus complies, with both of them realizing this marriage of convenience may turn into much

How to Train Your Earl (First Comes Love, #3)

A roguish earl must fight using his honor and not his sword to win his lady's hand in How To Train Your Earl, the third book in the First Comes Love trilogy from bestseller Amelia Grey.

Brina Feld has settled into a life devoted to helping others since the sinking of the Salty Dove left her widowed. She has no need for a man in her contented life. But when the notorious and handsome Lord Blacknight returns and awakens her desires, her peace and serenity vanish. If she agrees to an alliance with him, she knows she will have to battle her heart to keep from being snared under his spell.

Zane, the Earl of Blacknight, was never supposed to inherit the earldom, so he didn't much care to lead a respectable life before then. Fistfights, card games, and drinking are the order of the day. Now he's determined to change his rakish ways and he knows the proper lady who can help him. There's just one problem: He's already bet he'll win her hand before the Season is over. With her resolve to out scheme him, how can he show her that his love is true?

The Audacious Miss Eliza (Daughters of Courage #1)

As it turns out, a London Season is the worst place to find love.

Eliza Mulgrave never expected to make her bows to society. Yet here she is, dancing at Almacks and riding through Hyde Park. It would be perfectly delightful if it weren’t for the whispers and scornful glances. She certainly never sought to quit her place in society as a tradesman’s daughter. At least then she had known who she was and how to act; now, she’s completely lost.

Adam Lambert has been raised to be a viscount and though the time has come sooner than expected he is confident stepping into this new life. Until he meets his Father’s best kept secret—a little girl. And now she’s Adam’s responsibility. Surely someone ought to have told him about her before now.

After stumbling through an initial meeting, Adam and Eliza both find in the other what they most need this Season—a sincere friend. But society is not often willing to grant two people room to learn for themselves who to be, or who to love.

As the first stand alone novel in a new series by author Laura Rollins, The Audacious Miss Eliza begins the Daughters of Courage series. This charming story is a light hearted, clean and wholesome romance set in the Regency era (think: a clean Bridgerton).

Dare to Be Brazen (Daring Daughters, #2)

Their mothers dared all for love.
Just imagine what their daughters will do

Dare to be Brazen

The perfect lady…

Lady Elizabeth Adolphus, eldest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Bedwin is the most sought after young lady of the ton. Seen as the perfect debutante, beautiful, sweet natured, and demure, she is besieged by offers from eligible gentlemen. And she doesn’t want any of them. There is only one man she wishes to pursue, and he is far from eligible.

A dangerous man, with a dark past…

Monsieur Nicolas Alexandre Demarteau, owner of the infamous Parisian nightclub, Rouge et Noir, is the illegitimate half brother of Louis César de Montluc, Comte de Villen. Having left Paris to escape a scandal, Nic is determined Louis César will marry the perfect English lady to secure his position among the ton, only to discover the woman Louis came to England to pursue is the embodiment of Nic’s every dream. Keeping the promises he made Louis César will test his resolve when every instinct demands he keep Eliza for himself.

An English rose with a will of iron…

Now recovering from a near fatal accident, Eliza may appear fragile than before, but her determination to make her own choices is stronger than ever. She is tired of always doing the right thing, of being polite instead of speaking her mind, of dancing with respectable men when the one she desires is the personification of wickedness… and he doesn’t even seem to like her very much.

A passionate desire…

All Nic wants is for Eliza to be safe, but how can he protect her when all she wants is him. How can he resist her when she refuses to be the perfect lady a moment longer?

When she’s decided… it’s time to be brazen.
