In the “Reluctant Bride,” Lady Julia Devere decides to beat her fiance’s mistress at her own game, and in “How to Beguile a Baron,” two women find their debut at the first ball of the season ruined when they discover they are enamored of the same gentleman.
The Reluctant Rake
Proper, elegant Miss Julia Devere is shocked when she spies her fiancé in the arms of another woman. She awakens to the fact that the game of love can be played by very different rules than her own. And unless she can beat this new mistress at her own game, Julia stands to lose all that she suddenly realizes she wants.
How to Beguile a Baron

Randal Kenyon, Baron Ellerton, is the most eligible lord in London. And far from making peace, he sparks a battle between the pair of dazzling young beauties who now want only him.
