From the palaces of pashas in seventeenth-century India to the scandalous court of James Stuart of England, one woman struggles against fate to find true love . . .
Princess Yasaman has been blessed with rapturous beauty, fierce intelligence, and an innocent sensuality that captivates two formidable men—her scheming half-brother, Salim, and her loving husband, Prince Jamal. But her days of bliss and nights of steamy passion are shattered when Jamal is murdered, and Yasaman flees to England and the court of James I. Calling herself Jasmine, she is reunited with her beautiful mother, Velvet, and her grandmother, the legendary Skye O’Malley de Marisco.
Before long, Jasmine is caught up in the tangled intrigues of the court of the Stuart king, James I, where she is admired by the most powerful men in England: Rowan Lindley, Marquess of Westleigh, her good-natured second husband; the Earl of Glenkirk, who tempts her with forbidden passion; and hot-blooded Henry Stuart, prince of England. It is here that she truly becomes Wild Jasmine, a woman who lives and loves with fierce abandon and who surrenders to the deepest pleasures of love. . . .

Valentina had been admired, married, widowed, yet had never known love . . .
Not even at the illustrious court of Queen Elizabeth, where her innocent, violet-eyed beauty fired the hearts of England’s most gallant gentry, especially the roguish Earl of Kempe and the irrepressible Lord Padraic Burke.
But her innocence shattered when a deathbed confession revealed that her true father might not have been Lord Bliss but the lustful Sultan Murad of Istanbul. Determined to find the truth, Valentina sets sail for the East, a voyage of unsurpassed danger . . . and sensual discovery.
Lavish, sexy, magnificent—Bertrice Small’s Lost Love Found is a fitting tribute to the unforgettable heroine who rivals her famous aunt, Skye O’Malley, in grace, grandeur, and sensual daring.
In this sweeping historical epic featuring Skye O’Malley’s brother, Conn, New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small chronicles the lives of two lovers separated by the royal deceptions of 16th century Europe…
Under the command of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, Irish nobleman Conn O’Malley and heiress Aidan St. Michael are married. Once a carefree rogue who believed his desire for seducing women could never be sated, Conn now finds himself enchanted with his new bride—as a passion ignites between them to form a bond of everlasting love.
But a cruel plot makes Conn a prisoner of the queen—and Aidan the harem slave of a Turkish sultan. To be reunited with her true love, Aidan must use all of her seductive charms to outwit her captors and free herself…
A pawn in the bitter war between England’s Queen, Elizabeth Tudor, and Mary Queen of Scots, Skye must once again, unprotected and alone, fight for her children.
At Elizabeth’s command, she marries the Duc de Beaumont de Jaspre, whose Mediterranean principality is vital to England. Her new world, though tortuously cruel at first, is transformed by Skye’s hot-blooded desires—only to be shaken with the news that her beloved former husband may be alive in Algiers. Her daring flight into danger leads her ultimately to her heart’s true destiny—as bold and sensual as Skye herself.
All the Sweet Tomorrows continues the blazing adventures of raven-haired, emerald-eyed Skye O’Malley—a woman born to be loved by men, yet too proud and incomparable to answer anything but the call of her own passionate soul.
