On My Wishlist (77)

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.

She never wanted marriage…

When a friend is forced to consider a marriage of convenience, Lady Amelia Staunton is determined to rescue her. But her plans trap her in an illicit seduction, and Amelia must marry him herself. Malcolm’s all-consuming kisses and devilish humor might make up for her lost freedom, but she believes he will force her to abandon the Gothic romances she yearns to write. Since she can’t escape him, she must distract him from her secret…

He isn’t looking for love…

A powerful autocrat with a well-hidden rebellious streak, Malcolm MacCabe doesn’t need another beautiful mistress – he needs an obedient wife. Obedience is not one of Amelia’s virtues. But he’s too enthralled by her wit and passion to let her go – even if it means risking the political reputation he is building to save his clan.

Their hearts can’t survive the scandal…

Despite their intentions, every wicked embrace binds them together. But as their conflicting desires combust into insatiable hunger and unavoidable ruin, they must decide whether to pursue their personal destinies alone – or fight for the love that could destroy them both

Lord Beaumont Havendish has been thought dead for nine long years. However, death would be a relief from his grinding existence as a white slave in the tropical island of Saint-Domingue. At long last revolution gives him a chance to escape, but he’ll never escape the knowledge that the woman he loved sent him into a living hell.

He leaves the tropical sands behind and returns to the gentle shores of England thinking the nightmare is finally behind him, only to find it has only just begun. The traitorous Yvette is comfortably ensconced in his ancestral home, posing as Beau’s bereaved widow. Yet, nothing is what it seems. Yvette is no longer the girl he once adored. She seems more like a ghost than the wicked temptress he believes betrayed him. Can he forgive the past and dare he risk AWAKENING HIS DUCHESS?

Holt Price had come to Galveston in search of the woman he loved. After the pain, the heartbreak, the terrible devastation of war, he was ready to settle down with the green-eyed beauty he'd pledged to marry. Instead, he found himself gazing into a pair of vulnerable brown eyes that made him long to heal the hurt inside, to bury himself in the softness of a girl who was not his to take.
Her mother had always told her she was born to be cherished. But first battles, then duty, then poverty had stolen her chances of happiness. At 26, she was beginning to wonder if she would have to settle for the next man who came along, or reconcile herself to living alone. So how could she turn away from the lover she'd been waiting for all her life? At last, after so many Mr. Wrongs, here was a husband she could honor, the other half of herself, the man she was born to love.
