BY KING'S DECREE
Gerard has never shied from a challenge -- not from the threat to his lands and family by an old enemy, nor from the prospect of marriage to the enticing Lady Ardith. Of the two tasks, convincing Ardith to accept his suit might prove the more difficult, and claiming her in both body and heart the most rewarding prize of all.
The king’s decree seals her fate, but Ardith knows her betrothal to Gerard will end in tragedy because she can’t bear him an heir. Still, she can’t resist the temptation in his kiss or the lure of his touch. When an old feud erupts and threatens all they hold dear, dare she hope that their love can prevail?

LORD OF THE MANOR
Richard has no choice but to marry the widow of the man who almost killed him. His vow to rebuff the lovely Lady Lucinda becomes a challenge. Ignoring her now fatherless son proves futile. Surely, bedding her to slake his growing lust should be his only goal, for allowing Lucinda to claim a piece of his heart would prove his downfall.
Lucinda reluctantly accepts the decree that she wed Richard of Wilmont, praying that his reputation as a knight of strength and honor guarantees he’ll protect her son from her dead husband’s notorious family. She didn’t expect to be desirous of the quiet warrior, or to yearn for a true place in his life and heart – to hunger for a love that can never be.
"...a wonderful tale of chivalry, honor and love."
