    Dangerous to Love (Dangerous #1)
    by Elizabeth Thornton

    When London aristocrat Serena Ward disguises herself as an actress for the Jacobite cause, she does not count on attracting the amorous attention of Julian Raynor, owner of a popular gaming club - and die-hard anti-Jacobite. Their first encounter is a study in mistaken identity and sensuality that results in Serena's downfall. Julian, who blames Serena's father for his family's misfortunes, plans to exact revenge by marrying Serena. Tricked into marriage, Serena finds it difficult to maintain her icy reserve toward Julian, and the attraction she feels for him soon turns to love.

    In the age-old tradition of love never running smoothly, behind the scenes machinations and treachery ensure that the lovers have much to conquer before they can attain happiness.

    Dangerous to Kiss (Dangerous #2)
    by Elizabeth Thornton

    In the prologue, Deborah Weyman and Quentin, the eight-year-old boy in her charge, witness the murder of the boy's father, Gilbert Barrington. Deborah, who does not see the murderer clearly, hears Barrington address his killer as "Lord Kendal" and is horrified to find that she and Kendal have been named as Quentin's guardians. Fearing that Kendal will kill Quentin to silence him, she takes the boy, assumes a false identity and goes into hiding. Kendal, upon learning that Deborah has abducted Quentin, assumes that she had something to do with Barrington's death and with the espionage Barrington had been about to uncover. He sets out to apprehend her and, when he does, she proves to be a worthy opponent.

    Dangerous to Hold (Dangerous #3)
    by Elizabeth Thornton

    A HEARTLESS RAKE: He'd accosted her on a dark London street, sure that she was his missing wife. But a few moments in her company assured Marcus Lytton that Miss Catherine Courtnay was nothing like Catalina. cool and remote, with a tongue as tart as a lemon and eyes that could flash with temper, the fiery-haired beauty was everything his scheming adventuress of a wife wasn't - innocent, loyal, honest. And so he uttered the words that would sweep Catherine into his life, and into a desperate plan that could spell disaster for them both. "I want you to play the part of my wife . . ."

    A BEAUTIFUL IMPOSTER: As the infamous Earl of Wrotham waited impatiently for her answer, Catherine knew she was going to agree to his proposition, but not for the reasons he thought. More than anyone else, Catherine was aware of the dark side of Marcus Lytton, the heartless, unscrupulous rake who saw seduction as a game, and women as playthings to be used and discarded. And only when she found herself ensconced in his home and in his bedchamber did Catherine stop to realize just how dangerous her own position was.

    The Perfect Princess (Men from Special Branch #3)
    by Elizabeth Thornton
    Lady Rosamund Devere has no interest in becoming the wife of a dull prince, no matter how perfect the newspapers think she is for that role. But not even the unconventional Rosamund could imagine the headline the papers will soon be running: the one where she is the willing hostage of a condemned murderer.

    Yet Richard Maitland is no ordinary criminal. Steely-eyed, arrogant, and dangerously attractive, the ex-chief of His Majesty's Secret Sevice is also, as far as Rosamund is concerned, guilty as sin.

    Caught up in his daring escape on the eve of his execution, Rosamund soon finds herself in every bit as much danger as Richard. For the more she learns about this mysterious lone wolf of a man, the more determined she is to help him clear his name. But even more perilous than the conspiracy surrounding Richard is the passion that ignites between them - a passion that is rash, reckless, and impossible to resist.

    Case Devere, the Earl of Castleton, has agreed to help Special Branch track down a notorious killer - one who just happens to be his archenemy. But he finds more than he bargains for when his search leads him to Jane Mayberry, a beautiful bluestocking passionately devoted to the cause of women's rights - and to protecting her privacy.

Determined to find the one woman who may hold the key to his investigation, and to his heart, Case goes after her.

    Though their sparring belies an attraction too powerful to deny, Jane knows there can never be anything between herself and the strong-willed earl. for she carries a dark and terrifying secret that must remain hidden - even at the cost of a broken heart. As Case fights for the love of the one woman who has ever mattered to him, they are swept into a deadly game by a killer who won't stop until he has punished them both.

    The Marriage Trap (Trap #1)
    by Elizabeth Thornton

    Jack Rigg's experiences with women have made him a cynic, especially now that he has inherited his late brother's title and fortune. As Lord Ranleigh, he is hounded by ambitious mamas and their scheming daughters who have marriage on their minds. But Jack is wise to all their little tricks. That's why he is incensed when Miss Elinor Hill, a dowdy lady's companion he met at a reception at the British embassy, claims that she spent the night with him in his rooms at the Palais Royal.

    Ellie isn't trying to compromise Jack. She is in desperate need of an alibi, and she really did spend most of the night in Jack's rooms, not as herself, but masquerading as the ravishing Madame Aurora, whom Jack met at the gaming tables. Her night with Jack was quite innocent, and she, too, refuses to be compromised.

    Disgraced and unrepentant, Ellie leaves for London. Intrigued and sensing a mystery, Jack follows her. Before long, he embarks on an adventure not only to win this reluctant lady's heart, but to save her life as well.

    The Bachelor Trap (Trap #2)
    by Elizabeth Thornton

    The Bachelor Trap
    is the provocative tale of a gentleman with a secret and the independent lady he is determined to win in the ultimate game of love.

    It’s a challenge most men would avoid at all costs: to seduce the ravishing, reluctant Lady Marion Dane while avoiding that long walk to the altar. But Brand Hamilton, the base-born son of a duke with a bright future in politics, has his own compelling reasons for courting Marion.

    Now, with society ablaze over a very unconventional courtship, they embark on a journey that takes them from the glitter and intrigue of London to a decades-old secret hidden in a far-off English village – and a love that could prove the most irresistible snare of all.

    The Pleasure Trap (Trap #3)
    by Elizabeth Thornton

    The Pleasure Trap is the sinfully seductive, delightfully romantic story of a woman who discovers a most thrilling type of pursuit.

    After years of heroism in the fight against the French, Ash Denison wants nothing more than to savor the good life. But an urgent request has sent him to a writers' symposium. His charge: to unmask an author who has rattled several members of the ton by revealing their most intimate, most scandalous secrets. Not one to be left out, when Ash encounters a bold, beautiful - irresistibly aloof - woman writer, he can't help stirring up some gossip of his own.

    Much to Eve Dearing's surprise, Ash is far from the well-mannered gentleman she's heard about. In fact, he's shockingly brash and has taken an inexplicable interest in manhandling her at every turn. Yet something about his searing embrace makes her forgive his wicked behavior - and succumb to his dangerous seduction. And when a fellow writer is brutally attacked and Eve becomes the killer's next target, Ash surprises her once more by vowing not only to keep her safe, but to win her heart.

Her grandfather's new secretary, the mysterious and magnetic Ross Trevenan, has too much influence with the aging financier. And in Trevenan's eyes, Tessa can do nothing right.

    Shady Lady (Men from Special Branch #5)
    by Elizabeth Thornton

    As the Avon Journal's no-nonsense publisher, Jolie Chesney always stuck to the facts. And the fact was that she found the celebrated war hero who'd come to her office angrily demanding a retraction unsettlingly charismatic. His wild sexual exploits had found their way into her paper's gossip column, and Jo had no intention of compromising her standards, journalistic or otherwise. But when her star reporter suspiciously vanishes, Jo seeks help from this dangerously sensual man, whose connection to the Special Branch may save her friend's life, even if it means putting her own life - and heart - on the line.

    Waldo Bowman sensed danger in his immediate attraction for Jolie the instant they met. Beautiful and independent, she was unlike any woman he knew - and he was determined not to lose her, whatever the risk. But when Jo uses her paper to set a trap for a cold-blooded killer, these reluctant lovers embark on a mystery that will changer their lives - or end them.

    A woman of remarkable beauty and indomitable will, Deirdre Fenton is determined to extricate her incorrigible brother from his latest escapade - a dalliance with a renowned actress rumoured to be enjoying carte blanche with the infamous rake and war hero, the Earl of Rathbourne. Despite her memories of the night the Earl nearly ravished her senseless - inflaming her fury and her passions - Deirdre intends to straighten out her brother, and then find a husband who will be steady and faithful. She wants no part of love, or its inevitable heartbreak. A master strategist on the battlefield and off, Rathbourne discovers trying to breach the defences of a woman who refuses to believe in happy endings is an uphill battle. And after five years of waiting to put Deirdre in her rightful place - in his home, his bed, and his heart - he's not above putting his considerable powers of persuasion to work. Firmly convinced passion is a battlefield where love conquers all, he vows to lead them both to victory...with the tender mercies of the heart.
