On My Wishlist (55)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.


When her social-climbing mother decided to marry her off to some empty-headed fop, Jayne Worthington decided that the time had come to leave the foolish frivolity of New York society far behind. But embarking on a search for her beloved, long-lost brother was no easy task ... nor was resisting the rugged charms of the arrogant stranger she encountered on the waterfront! All she wanted was to book passage on Andrew MacGregor's clipper ship bound for the Mediterranean. but all he desired was a willing female to warm his cabin bed -- and possess in passion's ultimate embrace!


The bastard son of a Highlands laird, Andrew was determined to make his way in the world alone and tied to no woman. But his unwanted passenger was far from undesirable, and the moment he captured her lips with his, he knew she would soon belong to him -- body and soul! With kisses of intoxicating delight, the determined sea captain plotted his course of seduction and conquest .. on a voyage that would take them from the high seas to the golden sands of exotic Tripoli. And, as sizzling desires ignited beneath a blazing eastern sky, he vowed to keep the ebony-eyed beauty with him forever, as together, they surrendered to the fiery rapture of their searing... DESERT HEAT.

One year ago, Lady Camille Pryce left her haughty fiancé at the altar—for good reason. Not only was the marriage arranged before she could even walk, her betrothed was too smug to exert himself to meet her! Now, disowned, with no husband or family to support her, she’s left with one option: go to work in the notorious Tantalus Club…
A gentleman’s gaming house run by a woman, the Tantalus is no place for a proper lady; so, to save face, her jilted fiancé must retrieve her. But banned from the club, he’s forced to employ his ne’er-do-well cousin instead. A handsome, experienced rogue, Keating Blackwood is the perfect man to lure Camille away. But the moment they meet, Keating instead wants to save her…for himself. Impossible? Perhaps. But if Camille can make the ultimate player lay his cards on the table—and risk his heart—all bets are off…

It has taken Eugenie Belmont but a moment to decide whom to marry...

Unfortunately the gentleman in question, the Duke of Somerton, hasn’t yet offered—a mere formality for a confirmed member of the Husband Hunters Club of Miss Debenham’s Finishing School. Like her friends, Eugenie is unwilling to wait demurely until the perfect mate happens by. And, despite the handsome duke’s imposing reputation, she can feel his heated glances in her direction are charged with desire...and possibilities.

Saddled with a dukedom, a haughty dowager, and an irresponsible younger sister, Sinclair St. John is far too occupied with important matters to indulge in romantic whims. But for the first time in his life, a brazen temptress has him utterly distracted. He could—and he should—dismiss her and court someone more befitting his station. But he is irresistibly drawn to this bewitching woman...and must match her game of seduction, move for passionate move.

Rachid bin Amir al Hantan is fighting for the sovereignty of his small country. He needs to find some powerful allies - and fast. Attending the wedding of Dominic Corisi is as much about reconnecting with old friends as it is about celebrating nuptials. The last thing he needs right now is the distraction of a woman.

Zhang Yajun is a self-made billionaire who can’t believe she accepted her friend’s dare to kiss Sheikh Rachid before the end of the wedding.

When impulsive words lead to even more impulsive actions, these two will discover that sometimes the last thing you were looking for is the one thing that can save you.
