A country-bred girl, Kate Bancroft always intended to marry for love, like her parents. She wanted a husband who adored her, who would be her knight in shining armor. But her plans don't go as she had hoped - suddenly, she finds herself married to a marquess, and her new husband an aloof stranger determined to keep his thoughts and feelings to himself. It is the unfortunate truth that she and Lord St. Malin have been forced by circumstances to marry, and Kate is painfully aware that she is not the woman he would have chosen given a choice. Robert makes it plain that marriage is merely for the procreation of an heir, and once that is achieved, he intends to continue in London living the life he enjoyed before he met her. Kate suspects Robert plans to tuck her away in the country, while he pursues his own interests, and she becomes determined not to let him have it all his own way. A quiet battle ensues. Kate is left to wander the echoing corridors of St. Malin House, when she isn't thrown into the midst of the mocking and clever Haute Ton. She's not at all sure she likes them, as they live by their own rules, which seem rather shocking. She's not at all sure she likes her new husband either, except for his brilliant blue eyes, the panther-like way he walks, and the smoldering expression in his eyes when he looks at her. He is a rake and does not deserve her love, but neither can she resist his searing touch. Robert appears quite willing to do his duty, but Kate demands love and affection, and nothing less will do. Can people from two worlds, and two ideals, find their happily ever after?

Secrets. Lies. And a second chance at love... Torn from the only man she'd ever loved by a tragic secret, Mara Miller has traveled a long and difficult road. From poverty and the workhouses, she's finally made a life for herself as the owner of a small haberdashery in London. With her companion, Big B, an African slave she'd helped escape from a Brazilian slaver, she's made a fresh start. But when the past walks into her shop—in the form of the ever-handsome Roarke Garrott, Viscount Eversleigh—Mara feels her whole world crash to her feet. Thrust back into a web of lies, deceit, and manipulation, Mara is forced to face the one man she'd sworn to forget. For the past seven years, Roarke had sequestered himself in India to mourn Mara's death. Vowing to move on and put the past behind him, he returns to London, only to find himself gazing into those beautiful green eyes he believed he'd never see again. Now he's found her—alive and trying to deny who she was. A million feelings wash over him. Joy. Fury. Heartbreak. He would have the truth from her—of where she'd gone, and why—but when trouble from the past finds Mara and Big B, the truth becomes secondary to saving Mara's life. After just learning that the woman he'd loved is alive, Roarke is not about to lose her again... Keywords: Regency romance, historical romance, second chance, reunited, aristocrat

A soldier who despises women and a woman who despises soldiers must depend on each other to survive. Scarred in a duel over a feckless female, Gavin Lawrence leaves America to take up his new duty as Marquess of Effingham, vowing never to care about others again. But he does care about protecting his crumbling new home—the secret passages apparently conceal an intruder he’s determined to root out. Dillian Whitnell guards her injured cousin in isolated Arinmede manor after an attempt on both their lives. Having followed her father’s troops for years, Dillian is adept at camouflage. She just hadn’t expected the stubborn new marquess to refuse to believe in ghosts. Her game of hide-and-seek game taunts his irritation into intrigue, and intrigue into a forbidden passion, until Gavin realizes the exceedingly annoying but courageous young woman he chases is in terrible danger. Once more, the marquess is faced with the prospect of a fight for his life over a woman—unless Dillian leaves him and all she loves behind. REVIEWS “...a rousing good tale that is alternately merry, mischievous” Ann McGuire, Romance Reader “This fast-paced, witty novel will definitely delight on a cold winter’s night.” Margaret Devilbiss, Gothic Journal “Ms. Rice brings two marvelous characters together. With her mastery of subtle humor, The Marquess will please the taste of the most discriminating readers.” Joan Hammond, Romantic Times
