Fear can be a bully unless one beats it back to chase adventure and love.

Captain Francis Hildebrand Storme—Brand to those closest to him—didn’t come out of the Navy unscathed. Though he’s lost an eye in the Battle of Grand Port, that doesn’t stop him from playing the rake to the hilt. Life’s too much fun to settle down or act like a proper gentleman. Doesn’t matter that he might secretly wish for more.

Miss Elizabeth Hayhurst is recuperating at the seaside town of Ipswich for her health. Though her lungs are weak from a respiratory disease, she plans to depart for India in a month to keep house for her brother who is a missionary. Wearied from the war that took a suitor from her, she’s anxious to put heartbreak behind her, but when she receives an unexpected kiss from a dashing, randy Navy man while at the market, she might just change her mind.

While Brand’s not used to women rebuking his overtures, Elizabeth isn’t accustomed to having a man desire her. Though he’s been dared by friends to seduce the innocent miss, something about her draws his interest beyond winning the wager. He and Elizabeth spend three glorious weeks together, exploring, talking, and creating scandal as the seduction plays out. But reality intrudes and rips at the seams of their happiness. It’ll take courage and determination to mend hurt feelings in order to walk a new path together.

After spending three years imprisoned in Botany Bay for crimes he committed against a peer, he’s returned to London with revenge on his mind and a black mark against his name. However, it’s a sticky wicket, for in bringing retribution to a certain duke’s doorstep, he would destroy the life of his enemy’s sister—the woman he’d loved and lost.

As the founder of the Home, Jo, the widowed Lady Havenridge, is determined to be there for the women who need her. But when those same women conspire to accept an invitation on her behalf, she finds herself suddenly on the way to the Earl of Darrow’s home for the christening party of the son of her longtime friend and former partner, Pen, now the Countess of Darrow.

The upcoming marriage of the Earl of Wrexford and Lady Charlotte Sloane promises to be a highlight of the season, if they can first untangle—and survive—a web of intrigue and murder involving the most brilliant scientific minds in Regency London . . .

One advantage of being caught up in a whirl of dress fittings and decisions about flower arrangements and breakfast menus is that Charlotte Sloane has little time for any pre-wedding qualms. Her love for Wrexford isn’t in question. But will being a wife—and a Countess—make it difficult for her to maintain her independence—not to mention, her secret identity as famed satirical artist A.J. Quill?

Despite those concerns, there are soon even more urgent matters to attend to during Charlotte and Wrexford’s first public outing as an engaged couple. At a symposium at the Royal Botanic Gardens, a visiting botanist suffers a fatal collapse. The traces of white powder near his mouth reveal the dark truth—he was murdered. Drawn into the investigation, Charlotte and the Earl learn of the victim’s involvement in a momentous medical discovery. With fame and immense fortune at stake, there’s no shortage of suspects, including some whose ruthlessness is already known. But neither Charlotte nor her husband-to-be can realize how close the danger is about to get—or to what lengths this villain is prepared to go . . .
