School for Heiresses
Book 1: Never Seduce a Scoundrel
Lady Amelia Plume has many admirers; too bad they’re all fortune hunters and fops who can’t provide the exotic adventures she seeks. The ballrooms of Mayfair have become more appealing since the arrival of Major Lucas Winter—an American marine with a dangerous past and a brooding air. Lucas is brash, arrogant…and scandalously tempting. Every thrilling kiss sparks deeper desire, yet Amelia suspects that Lucas has a hidden motive in wooing her and she means to discover it, by any means necessary… Lucas came to London to find the cad who embezzled money from a naval contractor. The captivating Lady Amelia could be the key to his quest, but what started as simple flirtation has become a delicious dance of seduction. And when a rival jeopardizes Amelia’s reputation, Lucas must choose what he wants most—the chance to avenge his past, or a future filled with fiery passion…
Book 2: Only a Duke Will Do
Marry? Never! It would end Louisa North's work with her ladies reform group—and truth be told, she likes her independence very much, despite her royal father's protests. So when Simon Tremaine, the dashing Duke of Foxmoor whom she'd once loved—and had exiled from England-returns bent on marrying her, she's skeptical. Does he truly care for her, or does he simply want revenge? It's difficult for Louisa to resist Simon's dangerous charms, because the fire between them still burns as hot as ever. But when his ulterior motive for marriage is exposed, along with the deeply buried secrets of his past, Louisa vows to make him pay…and the price will be his heart.

Book 1: In the Prince's Bed
Alec needs an heiress, and he learns that Katherine is one. So he sets out to woo her away from her poet suitor with fun-filled riding parties, seductive poetry readings, and hot moonlight kisses. Suddenly Alec craves more than her fortune. But will she give him her heart once she discovers he's secretly a fortune-hunter?
Book 2: To Pleasure A Prince
When Marcus learns that Prinny's closest friend, a duke, wants to court Marcus's half-sister Louisa, Marcus refuses. But he doesn't count on interference from the duke's sister, Lady Regina. So they strike a bargain: he'll let the duke court Louisa if Lady Regina will let Marcus court her. But can two people with so many secrets and such different ways of life ever find enough common ground to marry?
Book 3: One Night with A Prince
The first time Gavin Byrne meets the Marchioness of Haversham, the general's daughter shoots at him. The second time she asks for his help in regaining some property her late gambler husband sold without her knowledge. When the plan to get it back involves her masquerading as his mistress at a gambling house party, she rapidly learns that Gavin can be a ruthless gambler as well as a tempting seducer. But can she help the man with no soul regain his own when deceiving her might garner him the keys to revenge against Prinny?
Swanlea Spinster Series
It started out with three sisters, daughters to the Earl of Swanlea. Condemned to spinsterhood by circumstances (and bad luck), Lady Rosalind, Lady Helena, and Lady Juliet are struggling to make ends meet with an ill father and an underfunded estate. That's when Griffith Knighton and Daniel Brennan make an appearance that changes their lives forever. This series of five books (the first three of which really should be read in order), has won awards, hit bestseller lists, and garnered wide reader acclaim.
Book 1: A Dangerous Love
Griffith Knighton has found the perfect way to avoid being trapped into marriage with one of the Earl of Swanlea's daughters: he'll swap identities with his man of affairs during their visit to Swan Park, and be free to search out the hidden document that will prove his legitimacy. After all, Griff is not about to marry some homely spinster just to get it from the earl. But he didn't reckon on the brazen, voluptuous Rosalind, who could tempt even a saint into sinning—and Griff is no saint. Rosalind balks at the plan to marry her off to her father's wealthy heir—and his man of affairs is even more intolerable! The arrogant man is clearly up to something with all his sneaking about Swan Park, but the sparks that fly when they're together make her wish that he wasn't. He's a bit dangerous and a lot mysterious. Dare she risk her heart on a man whose secrets could destroy her love?
Book 2: A Notorious Love
Lady Helena Laverick is at her wits' end! The only man who can help her find her eloping young sister is that scoundrel Daniel Brennan—the man who played with her emotions last summer and then left. And he used to be a smuggler! Although Mrs. Nunley's Guide to Etiquette for Young Ladies would never approve, Helena is forced to go after the runaway in Daniel's company. But something about being with him feels oddly freeing—and a delicious tingle warns Helena that more than her reputation may be in danger… Daniel finds most of the prim lady's rules ridiculous—but when she has to masquerade as his wife for appearance's sake, he immediately envisions the delights of sharing a bedchamber. The unexpected passion smoldering beneath her proper exterior ignites his desire, and the vulnerability hidden beneath her cool control makes him want her even more. Yet Helena's a lady, and he's the son of a highwayman. How can he ask her to share his world?
Book 3: After the Abduction
After two London Seasons—and a score of resoundingly dull society suitors—lovely Juliet Laverick still longs for only one man: Morgan Pryce, the dashing scoundrel who kidnapped her two years ago. But her determination to bring him to justice hasn't waned—not even when the man she mistakes for Morgan, his twin brother Sebastian, tells her some shocking news: her mysterious paramour has disappeared. Sebastian Blakely, the Baron Templemore, dares not admit that he's the one Juliet seeks, that it is his kiss she still yearns for. Confessing to her abduction would bring disaster and scandal upon them both. But how can he convince Juliet to forsake her pursuit of her dream lover when all he dreams of is holding her in his arms again?
Book 4: Dance of Seduction
It's difficult enough for Lady Clara Stanbourne to run her London home for reformed young pickpockets without having to contend with a criminal in business right next door. The mysterious Captain Morgan Pryce is obviously dealing in stolen property, and she will never allow the handsome scoundrel to lead the children astray! Pryce is very much mistaken if he believes her a delicate rose he can wilt with soft words and passionate, unspoken promises. Now if only Clara could douse the fiery yearning the charming cad ignites inside her… Morgan wishes he could tell the exquisite Clara the truth: that he is working undercover to break up a notorious crime ring. His mind should be on his duty—not wondering how it would feel to hold Clara in his arms and taste her luscious lips. But now that she has entered into his most dangerous game, Morgan knows he must have her, despite the very real peril to his secret mission…and to his heart!
Book 5: Married to the Viscount
Abigail Mercer was breathless with anticipation at being reunited with Spencer Law, whom she met in America and later married by proxy. But now the dashing Viscount Ravenswood denies all knowledge of their union! Too many witnesses have made it impossible for the secretive Spencer to reject his "bride" without causing a scandal, but he has sworn never to marry. So he proposes a marriage in name only until they can locate his mysteriously absent younger brother Nat—who is responsible for everything!—and untangle this messy affair.
Abigail is incensed, irate…and irresistibly attracted to this handsome, infuriating man who hides his smoldering passion behind a proper exterior. So the lady will agree to his terms on one condition: Spencer must seal their bargain with a kiss. But when Spencer agrees, he finds that one deep, lingering, unforgettable kiss isn't nearly enough. And keeping his hands off his pretty wife is going to be much harder than he thought.
The Lord Trilogy
When The Pirate Lord kidnaps a shipload of convict women, little does he know that he's about to meet a stepsister and stepbrother, Sara Willis and the Earl of Blackmore, who will change his life forever. Nor does he expect to find himself eventually part of a group of friends that includes not only him but the earl and his best friend, the Viscount St. Clair. These three men's stories make up the Lord trilogy.
Book 1: The Pirate Lord
A shipload of women—theirs for the taking! Pirate captain Gideon Horn couldn't be more delighted. His men are tired of wandering the high seas and want to settle down with wives on an uncharted island paradise. And the women will surely be grateful for rescue from the life of drudgery awaiting them in New South Wales… Married? To pirates? Sara Willis couldn't be more appalled. First she demands proper courting—at least a month. The darkly handsome pirate lord gives them a week. Then Sara insists the men vacate their huts for the women—Gideon demands her kisses in return. As the demands heat up, so do their passions—and soon Sara can't remember just why she's fighting the devilishly seductive captain so hard… Ian Lennard needs a wife and thinks he's found the perfect one. Then a newspaper column by a notorious gossip named Lord X unwittingly exposes part of Ian's deeply hidden past. When the column scares off Ian's skittish prospective fiancée, Ian wants to skewer the gossipmonger. Using his skills as a one-time spy, he runs the man to ground. But the "man" is a fetching young female named Felicity Taylor, whose wastrel father left her and her four young brothers so destitute that only her pitiful income from her column stands between them and ruin. Unsure of his loyalties, Felicity engages Ian in a battle of wits that fires his blood. He's soon embroiled in a war of words and passion that will lay open his dark soul to the only woman who can forgive the sins of his past and teach him how to heal.
Book 2: The Forbidden Lord
Jordan Willis, the Earl of Blackmore, is known for his exploits with experienced bedmates and his avoidance of innocents. Having never been in love, he's earned the nickname "the Lord with the Granite Heart." So he's surprised when a chance encounter prompts him to steal a kiss from the prim Emily Fairchild, a rector's daughter. Stunned by her passionate response, he nonetheless expects never to see her again. Then he meets the flirtatious Lady Emma, supposed daughter of a Scottish earl, who's a double for the lovely Emily. When the earl recognizes her and demands an explanation, Emily is in a quandary. Her very life depends on convincing society that she is Lady Emma. But though she plays the coquette and succeeds in making the earl doubt his own eyes, no disguise can hide their fiery attraction. Can she trust the Lord of Granite Hearts with her secrets when he's so certain love is forbidden to him?
Book 3: The Dangerous Lord
Ian Lennard needs a wife and thinks he's found the perfect one. Then a newspaper column by a notorious gossip named Lord X unwittingly exposes part of Ian's deeply hidden past. When the column scares off Ian's skittish prospective fiancée, Ian wants to skewer the gossipmonger. Using his skills as a one-time spy, he runs the man to ground. But the "man" is a fetching young female named Felicity Taylor, whose wastrel father left her and her four young brothers so destitute that only her pitiful income from her column stands between them and ruin. Unsure of his loyalties, Felicity engages Ian in a battle of wits that fires his blood. He's soon embroiled in a war of words and passion that will lay open his dark soul to the only woman who can forgive the sins of his past and teach him how to heal.
Fantasy with Christine Feehan, Emma Holly & Elda Minger
A Day in Mossy Creek with Virginia Ellis, Debra Dixon & Martha Shields
The Royal Brotherhood Trilogy and the Heiress Series are connected. Simon and Louisa, who appear originally as secondary characters in the Royal Brotherhood Trilogy, have their own book in the Heiress Series (book 2: Only a Duke Will Do). Their siblings show up in that book as well, and some of the characters from the trilogy are mentioned in passing. You can read both series in order without missing anything, although I would read the Royal Brotherhood Trilogy before reading Only a Duke Will Do.
The Lord Trilogy and Swanlea Spinster Series are far more closely interwoven, and although the Swanlea series starts before the Lord trilogy, I would recommend reading the Lord trilogy first and then the Swanlea series.
