Lords & ladies, rogues & gamblers, spies & highlanders . . . intrigue, suspense, and romance in Regency England.
Welcome to Regency England and the Farthingales of Chipping Way.
Heather Farthingale has always dreamed of marrying a marquess and that dream is about to come true. She has made a brilliant match with a handsome, wealthy nobleman who is everything elegant and refined that irreverent Highlander, Captain Robert MacLauren, is not. So why does the Book of Love keep pointing her toward Robbie? And why does her heart insist on listening?
Robert MacLauren earned his wicked reputation as a womanizing hound, and never had an interest in courtship until he met Heather Farthingale. When a Highlander falls in love, it is forever, and he knows there will be no one for him but this lass with big, pixie eyes, who puts magic in his heart. How can he convince her to trust him?
Does this mysterious Book of Love have the power to bring true hearts together?

A scarred lady, living in the fringes. Lady Alton knows she doesn’t fit into polite society. Her scars determined that long ago, and marrying a viscount never helped the matter. Now a widow, Torrie is adrift, knowing peace and a family will never be hers. Luckily, she has one hobby: obsessing on the man that helped kill her family nine years ago—Mr. Robert Lipinstein—who is back on English soil. When she discovers he is about to board a ship—still not accountable for his crimes—she follows him to the docks.
A hardened rogue brought up from the worst of humanity. Roe Lipinstein has one thing on his mind—to get on his ship and catch the Minerva—the smuggling ship that holds the crew that killed half his mates. The ship—and the men aboard—need to sink to a watery grave, and he’s now within striking distance. He has no time to save a fool woman from a hoard of sailors at the docks. Of course, what he should do, and what he actually does, have always been very different things.
A reckoning no one was prepared for. When Roe yanks Torrie from the frothing band of ruffians, he’s faced with a reckoning he wasn’t prepared to have. He served seven years in Newgate Prison for killing Torrie’s family. A crime he didn’t commit. Not that she’ll believe him. Ever.
But the attraction between them cannot be denied. And if she manages to crack her heart open to this hardened rouge, a love that will defy all odds could be theirs.

Lord Percival Bretagne is used to playing games. He survived being a spy for a decade using his wits alone. But that was just life and death. Now, he’s playing for the most important prize of all—love.
He’ll Stop at Nothing…
Ten years after his family gave him up for dead, British spy Lord Percival Bretagne is back home, but his mission is far from over. Playing the aristocrat in London gambling dens and at country house parties is just a cover for Percy’s real quest. He’s hunting the man who stole everything from him—his family, his marriage, even his identity. And this time nothing, and no one, will stand in his way.
She’ll Risk it All…
But one night with Isabel Galante changes everything. She’s willing to gamble a woman’s most intimate prize in order to save her imprisoned father, but she didn’t expect a devilishly handsome opponent with a dangerously attractive wicked streak. Isabel would do anything for her family, including betraying Percy, but she has no idea that she’s stumbled into the middle of a decade-long quest for revenge.
Who Will Win in the Game Called Love?
Percy has been betrayed before, and now the man who destroyed his life is using Isabel to strike again. With the fate of the government and his new life in the balance, he’ll have to keep Isabel seductively, scandalously close. They begin a passionate game of truth and lies, deception and dalliance, uncovering the heart of who they really are and realizing that winning might mean losing what matters the most—each other.
