    To Catch an Heiress
    (The first book in the Agents for the Crown series)
    (1998)
    A novel by Julia Quinn

    WHAT'S AN HEIRESS TO DO?

    When fetching Caroline Trent is kidnapped by Blake Ravenscroft she doesn't struggle to elude this dangerously handsome agent of the crown. After all, she's been spending most of her days running from the unwanted marriage proposals of her guardian's nitwit son. Yes, Blake believes she's a notorious spy named Carlotta de Leon, but, for six weeks until her twenty-first birthday, when she'll gain control of her fortune, hiding out in the titillating company of a dark mysterious captor is convenient-and romantic.

    WHO'S A SPY TO LOVE?

    Blake Ravenscroft's mission is to bring "Carlotta" to justice, not to fall in love. His heart has been hardened by years of intrigue and the loss of his beloved fiancee. But this little temptress proves oddly disarming and thoroughly kissable, and suddenly, the unthinkable becomes possible-that this mismatched couple might be destined for love.

    War scarred Lord John's body and soul. But this brazen, intoxicating, infuriating bluestocking poses an even greater threat: she is forcing him to care again. For Belle is a woman of bold, independent spirit, equally unconcerned about society's petty restrictions and love's hidden perils. And the beautiful, determined schemer will not rest until she returns joy and light to the damaged lord's life...and wins a place in his shuttered heart forever.

    The Lost Duke of Wyndham
    (The first book in the Two Dukes of Wyndham series)
    (2008)
    A novel by Julia Quinn

    Jack Audley has been a highwayman.

    A soldier. And he has always been a rogue. What he is not, and never wanted to be, is a peer of the realm, responsible for an ancient heritage and the livelihood of hundreds. But when he is recognized as the long-lost son of the House of Wyndham, his carefree life is over. And if his birth proves to be legitimate, then he will find himself with the one title he never wanted: Duke of Wyndham.

    Grace Eversleigh has spent the last five years toiling as the companion to the dowager Duchess of Wyndham. It is a thankless job, with very little break from the routine . . . until Jack Audley lands in her life, all rakish smiles and debonair charm. He is not a man who takes no for an answer, and when she is in his arms, she's not a woman who wants to say no. But if he is the true duke, then he is the one man she can never have . . .

    Everything and the Moon
    (The first book in the Lyndon Sisters series)
    (1997)
    A novel by Julia Quinn

    STARCROSSED

    It was indisputably love at first sight. But Victoria Lyndon was merely the teenaged daughter of a vicar. . .while Robert Kemble was the dashing young earl of Macclesfield. Surely what their meddlesome fathers insisted must have been true-that he was a reckless seducer determined to destroy her innocence. . . and she was a shameless fortune hunter. So it most certainly was for the best when their plans to elope went hopelessly awry.

    MOONSTRUCK

    Even after a seven-year separation, Victoria-now a governess-still leaves Robert breathless. But how could he ever again trust the raven-haired deceiver who had shattered his soul? And Victoria could never give her heart a second time to the cad who so callously trampled on it the first. But a passion fated will not be denied, and vows of love yearn to be kept. . . even when one promises the moon.

    The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever
    (Bevelstoke #1)

    (2007)
    A novel by Julia Quinn

    2 March 1810 . . .
    Today, I fell in love.

    At the age of ten, Miranda Cheever showed no signs of Great Beauty. And even at ten, Miranda learned to accept the expectations society held for her—until the afternoon when Nigel Bevelstoke, the handsome and dashing Viscount Turner, solemnly kissed her hand and promised her that one day she would grow into herself, that one day she would be as beautiful as she already was smart. And even at ten, Miranda knew she would love him forever.

    But the years that followed were as cruel to Turner as they were kind to Miranda. She is as intriguing as the viscount boldly predicted on that memorable day—while he is a lonely, bitter man, crushed by a devastating loss. But Miranda has never forgotten the truth she set down on paper all those years earlier—and she will not allow the love that is her destiny to slip lightly through her fingers . . .

    Lady Whistledown Strikes Back
    (2004)
    An omnibus of novels by Suzanne Enoch, Karen Hawkins, Julia Quinn and Mia Ryan

    From Publishers Weekly

    A strong and charming encore to The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown, this superb Regency-era novella collection is punctuated by gossip columnist Lady Whistledown's witty comments and penned by the same authors who contributed to the previous book. A disastrous dinner party during which a ruby bracelet goes missingâ€"and four couples discover or rediscover their soul matesâ€"sparks the collection. Each tale follows one pair as they tackle the obstacles to love, but the stories are skillfully interwoven to the point where they present the same encounters and relay the same dialogue from different points of view. At times, references to the other couples can feel forced, but the authors are largely successful in piecing their hilarious and sometimes touching stories together into a delightful romantic quilt. Similarities abound: the heroines are unwed virgins, the heroes unwed but not virginal, and all are filled with gratitude that they found each other. Only Hawkins's story, featuring a wedded couple estranged for 12 years, stands strangely apart, as it explores the darker issues of pride, betrayal and forgiveness. Sure to be as popularâ€"if not more soâ€"than the previous Whistledown, this winsome collection is a cut above most romance anthologies.

    Mr. Cavendish, I Presume
    (The second book in the Two Dukes of Wyndham series)
    (2008)
    A novel by Julia Quinn

    Amelia Willoughby has been engaged to the Duke of Wyndham for as long as she can remember. Literally. A mere six months old when the contracts were signed, she has spent the rest of her life waiting. And waiting. And waiting . . . for Thomas Cavendish, the oh-so-lofty duke, to finally get around to marrying her. But as she watches him from afar, she has a sneaking suspicion that he never thinks about her at all . . .

    It's true. He doesn't. Thomas rather likes having a fiance - all the better to keep the husband-hunters at bay - and he does intend to marry her . . . eventually. But just when he begins to realize that his bride might be something more than convenient, Thomas's world is rocked by the arrival of his long-lost cousin, who may or may not be the true Duke of Wyndham. And if Thomas is not the duke, then he's not engaged to Amelia. Which is the cruelest joke of all, because this arrogant and illustrious duke has made the mistake of falling in love . . . with his own fiance!

    by Julia Quinn

    Published June 30th 2009

    RUMORS AND GOSSIP ... THE LIFEBLOOD OF LONDON


    When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancee, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits ... and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something.
    Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security. He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself ...
