The Importance of Being Scandalous Historical Romance

The Importance of Being Scandalous

Book One

A horse race in trousers on Rotten Row. Visiting a gaming hell in a dress that would make her mother faint. Sneaking an invitation to a masquerade ball attended by only the wickedest, most debauched members of society…

And none of it is scaring off Amelia’s Bishop’s stuffy, egotistical fiancé. The only thing left to do is entice her childhood friend Nicholas Wakefield into a truly engagement-ending scandal.

The Wakefields are the height of propriety, and Nicholas’s parents have made it clear a wife from the neighboring Bishop family is unacceptable…

But Nicholas would give up his family and his fortune if Amelia could ever see him as more than just a friend. He’ll go along with her scheme, even if it means ruining them both, because he has a plan to change her mind about him merely being the boy next door.

A Scandal By Any Other Name

Book Two

Julia Bishop has led a very sheltered life. Protected by her family from those who
might ridicule her for her secrets, she stays hidden away in the country. But she
longs for more, if only for an evening. To kiss a rake in full view of the stable boy.
Unchaperoned picnics. Romance. But she knows she’ll never experience any of those

That is, until a handsome duke with a mysterious past of his own arrives…

Duke Jasper DeVere left London to grieve his grandfather’s death privately, away
from the prying eyes and gossips of the ton. Seeking solitude at a friend’s country
manor, he’s surprised he finds himself drawn to the company of the shy beauty
determined to present the epitome of proper behavior.

That is, until the mysterious woman makes an indecent proposal…

Julia can’t believe what she’s suggested to the duke. Nor that he agrees a distraction
is what they both need. But what will happen when Jasper must return to his duties
and leave Julia behind? Will the memories of their time together be enough for a
lifetime of solitude for either of them?

Because Julia can never leave her country haven and a duke can never stay…
