From the drawing rooms of Regency London to the wilds of Scotland, Adrienne Basso spins a tempestuous tale of secrets, surprises, and breathtaking passion. . .

She Ran From A Broken Heart. . .

A pillar of decorum and decency, Harriet Sainthill suddenly finds herself the object of scandal when her cad of a fiancé jilts her. Ever practical, she accepts a position as a governess to a wealthy Scottish merchant, determined to escape London and the gossip of the ton. Her hopes for a quiet new life are dashed when she arrives at the dark, desolate castle in the wilds of Scotland and meets her mysterious new employer--a darkly handsome man Harriet finds both intimidating and intriguing. . .

. . .Straight Into The Arms Of Love
Powerful, implacable and infuriatingly secretive, "Mr. Wainwright" is no Scottish merchant, but rather a runaway English lord. Once a rake who savored the indolent life of a reckless nobleman, Nathaniel Bennett must now protect three orphaned children and his own legacy from a conniving relative. And while the distraction of a sharp-tongued governess is the last thing he needs, he can think of little else but sweeping her into his arms. . .and off to his bed.

As danger and deceit ally them in a perilous adventure, Harriet will soon uncover Nathaniel's deepest secrets--and her own deepest desires.

His Greatest Surprise

Mistaking Anne Paget, a beautiful artist, for her sister Nicole, an adventuress who has stolen his nephew's heart, Richard Cameron, Earl of Mulgrave, receives the shock of his life when he meets the woman in question. For she is nothing like he's imagined…and everything he's ever wanted.

His Deepest Desire

From the moment she sees the darkly handsome Earl, Anne Paget longs to paint him. But Anne doesn't realize that Richard believes she is her younger sister...until he unwittingly leads her into a compromising situation that threatens her reputation.

His Noble Promise

With her own ideas of honor—and dreams for the future, which do not include marriage—Anne is determined to refuse every one of Richard's proposals. Yet as each day passes, she finds herself drawn to his gentle persistence…tempted by nights of reckless abandon…and enticed by the promise of a love that will last forever.

An enchanting tale of a mismatched couple joined by fate and destined for love.

When pampered Faith Linden's father and her titled fiancé, Viscount Dewhurst, die, she suddenly finds herself in a desperately precarious position. The only way Faith can hold on to her beloved family home is to convince her late fiancé's younger brother, the new Viscount Dewhurst, to marry her in his stead. Yet when she finally encounters Lord Griffin Sainthill, she is in for a surprise: this brooding and ruggedly handsome adventurer is not so easily bent to her will...and may be the man who can capture her unsuspecting heart.

A sea captain and owner of a profitable shipping company, Griffin Sainthill was quite happy with his life in the American colonies. So when the news of his inheritance finally reaches him, the sun-bronzed seafarer is less than pleased. His mood only darkens when he returns to England to discover a brazen beauty intent on becoming his bride! But when a twinge of conscience and a stolen kiss give him pause, Griffin finds himself embarking on the riskiest venture of all-marriage to a woman who will tempt him, torment him, and turn his whole life upside down.

Lauren Stuart hasn't spent years perfecting her craft as a pastry chef only to let a stranger steal one of her prized recipes. Writing the definitive dessert cookbook is more than enough to keep Lauren busy, without investigating the wealthy hunk who claims her cheesecake as his own in a magazine article. But when she enters Jonathan Windsor in a cooking contest she's judging to expose his culinary fraud, she's surprised to find that the handsome businessman is a delicious temptation of another kind...

Jonathan isn't sure how the profile detailing his return to his family's Maryland seafood business included a cheesecake recipe--the only thing he knows how to make is reservations. His entry in the bake-off is even more mystifying, but after one look at Lauren's lovely face, the only puzzle he wants to solve is her curious resentment towards him. He asks the petite blonde with the sharp tongue for cooking lessons, and soon dessert isn't the only thing on the menu as Lauren and Jonathan heat things up in the kitchen--and the bedroom...
