Taste of Temptation by Cheryl Holt (Spinster's Cure series book 2)



ISBN: 978-0425235140



Publisher:  Berkley



Helen Hamilton is a twenty-five-year-old spinster with no income and no propects who struggles to care for her two orphaned sisters. Destitute and only a heartbeat away from the streets, Helen applies for a position as a governess to the younger siblings of Captain Tristan Odell, guardian to the Earl of Hastings and his twelve-year-old sister. But when Tristan turns Helen away, her future seems as desperate as her options.


Determined to do whatever it takes to support her sisters, Helen ends up at a brothel run by Mrs. Bainbridge, the former mistress of Vicount Redvers (whom we meet in book one of this series) where she agrees to sell herself as a mistress to a client of wealth and prestige. Low and behold, it is Capt. Odell who buys Helen, but rather than as his mistress, he offers her the governess's position. Enmeshed in an attraction which draws her to Tristan and he to her, their passion quickly grows, as does an unexpected danger that could easily destroy not only their love but their lives as well.

Publisher:  Avon
 
 
 
There went the bride...

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 fiancée—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 fiancée!

Publisher:  Avon



Will the real Duke of Wyndham please stand up?

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...
