Love was never part of his plan…then again, neither was she…
Seafaring Scotsman Jack Kent has enjoyed his share of trysts with bored society wives, but pleasure–not love–has always been his aim. Until the day he finds his carriage–and his life–invaded by a disheveled American heiress. Even rumpled and torn, nothing can hide Amelia Belford’s enchanting beauty or her fiery will to be free. And for the first time Jack is faced with a woman who arouses in him something more than desire.
Amelia never dreamed her desperate flight from an arranged marriage would find her scrambling out of a church window, landing in a tangle of twigs, and finally darting into the carriage of a stranger. And she never imagined she’d then set sail for his ancestral home–and discover passion in his arms. But Amelia is not the only one with a scandal to her credit. She soon senses pain behind Jack’s caresses–secrets he will not reveal. Just as she breaks through his reserve, a devastating scheme forces them apart. Could the same adventurous spirit that brought them together also be their undoing? Only the truth–and one more impetuous act of courage–will tell.
The last thing he expected was to steal her heart…
She should have been terrified, but Charlotte surprised even herself when she found herself helping a masked jewel thief. Now, after impulsively escaping in a waiting carriage, she finds herself alone with a dangerously seductive stranger whose identity remains a mystery that could steal not only her heart–but her life.
…Unless it was she’d steal his.
The robbery was a disaster but the danger was real, and the last thing Harrison Payne, earl of Bryden, planned was to be saved by a willowy, unconventional beauty. Already captivated by her courage and sensuality, Harrison is equally intrigued by her clumsy attempt to blackmail him. But Charlotte is hiding a past–and a secret–as dangerous as his own. And as an enemy seeks to destroy them both, they will abandon themselves to the passionate destiny that has drawn them together…and a chance at a love worth risking everything for.
Filled with charm and humor, The Prisoner is Karyn Monk’s passionate new romance of a proud Scottish nobleman, an unconventional beauty, and a love that defies all odds.
He was a fugitive from justice…
Once a powerful laird, now a convicted murderer, Haydon Kent, Marquess of Redmond, had no hope of eluding the hangman’s noose — until a mysterious beauty appeared in the dark shadows of his cell.
Escaping in the dead of night, he sought only to reclaim his life and prove his innocence. Instead he finds himself imprisoned once again — by an exquisite woman with red-gold hair who soothes his fevered body and tormented soul … and stirs in him a passion unlike any he has ever known.
…until she imprisoned his heart.
An outcast from society, Genevieve MacPhail has devoted her life to rescuing wayward urchins from the brutalities of a corrupt prison system. Harboring an infamous escaped murderer will only imperil the beloved children who have become the center of her world. But she doesn’t believe the disarmingly handsome nobleman is a cold-blooded killer — even if he does harbor a painful secret.
Determined to solve the mystery of who was trying to kill him, Genevieve will assume the role of Haydon’s wife, only to find herself succumbing to a dangerous desire that could destroy them both.
