Happily Ever After Box Set: Books 4-6
He's a Duke, But I Love Him
After five seasons, Lady Olivia Jackson has despaired of ever finding the man she is searching for -- a man who will allow her the freedom to live life as she pleases. Her deepest desires are not the typical pastimes of a lady. Using a pseudonym, Olivia puts her intellect to use writing a financial column, and yearns for a life of fun and adventure. Her mother, unfortunately, has other ideas.
Upon the unexpected death of his father, well-known rake and charmer Alastair Finchley is thrust into the role of Duke of Breckenridge. The title, however, also comes with massive amounts of debt which his father accumulated at the horse track and the gambling tables. This life of responsibility is not one which Alastair would have chosen, and he is determined to maintain his rakish ways in all other aspects.
When Olivia and Alastair renew their acquaintance, they are shocked by the depths of their desire for one another. They each determine, however, that giving in is not worth the potential consequences -- or is it?
Loved by the Viscount
After three months of marriage, the husband of Lady Rosalind Branson falls to his death down the stairs of a brothel and Rosalind has but one feeling -- relief, as she is now free. She soon learns, however, that her dowry has been spent and the estate in ruin, leaving her destitute. The only option presented to her is marriage to her husband’s cousin, a fate she refuses to accept.
William Elliot, Viscount of Southam, has a life of which many are envious. He has a fine estate, a pleasurable life in society, good looks, and charm. He also has a meddling mother, a trying brother, and headaches that plague him for days on end. When the woman he always wanted marries another, he agrees to allow his mother to host a house party in order to find him a wife.
When William’s brother gets himself into yet another spot of trouble, William resolves not to help him this time, until he recognizes the victim of Alfred’s latest scheme -- Rosalind Branson, a woman he has known since childhood, yet has never particularly noticed before. He is determined to right his brother’s wrongs and help the woman. Seeing no other option, Rosalind accepts the offer to stay for the Southam house party, and both she and William are surprised when they find themselves falling for one another. Their growing attraction, however, is tested by Rosalind’s mistrust of men, William’s former attachment to Lady Olivia, and his mother and brother, who conspire against them. Can they overcome all that stands between them to find love?
Because the Earl Loved Me
Known by all as a beauty with a haunting, hypnotic voice, Anne Finchley has always longed for more than marriage to a nobleman. She dreams of gracing the stage as an actress, an occupation unheard of for the daughter of a duke. But a chance meeting at a country theatre changes her fate forever.
The Earl of Merryweather, Christopher Anderson, pre-determines every moment of his life, carefully calculating every decision -- including marriage to the sister of the Duke of Breckenridge. When he begins his courtship, however, everything goes awry, as nothing about her fits his expectations.
When Anne suffers an accident and must rely on Christopher for help, she turns his life upside down.
