A not-so-merry widow…
The widowed Marchioness of Folkestone is notorious for her parties, her art collection, and her utter disregard for the rules. But Ellie Claiborne knows her destruction is near. The new marquess is her first lover – the man whose sculpted body and sardonic grin haunt her every time she picks up her paintbrush. If he ever returns to claim his inheritance, her heart won’t survive seeing him again.
A man determined to destroy her…
Nicholas Claiborne hasn’t stepped foot in England since watching Ellie marry his cousin. He has no use for the gorgeous, heartless girl who betrayed him, or the title she abandoned him for. But when his business in India turns deadly, Nick must return to London to uncover a murderer – and take revenge on the woman he couldn’t force himself to forget.
A love they can’t escape…
Nick hates Ellie’s transformation from sweet debutante to jaded seductress. Ellie despises him for leaving her behind. Still, the sparks between them reignite the passion that should have been their destiny. As their demands of each other turn darker and a potential killer closes in, they must decide whether to guard the fragile remnants of their hearts — or find a way to fall in love all over again.

Reviewer praise for The Marquess Who Loved Me:
“Deeply moving, often painful and truly romantic, Sara Ramsey’s third Muses of Mayfair book is a poignant journey from start to finish… Such a moving, immersive work that I couldn’t stop reading until Ellie and Nick’s story had played out. Sara Ramsey has written a deeply emotional, challenging and ultimately rewarding story that should be savored.” – Bridget, The Romance Reviews
“This book takes the [historical romance] genre to another level…The novel is filled with characters who are complex and compelling, who have stories of their own to tell…I found myself making excuses to extend my reading time just that bit further.” – Margaret Fisk, Tales to Tide You Over
“This is one of the sexier regencies I’ve read, so if you like steamy scenes it should be an auto-buy. It’s a sexy romp, with a little intrigue…Recommended for lovers of sexy regency hijinks and revenge plots.” – Elyse, Goodreads
“Yet again I enjoyed the continuation of The Muses of Mayfair series by Sara Ramsey…It is so very easy to fall in love with the story of each one of these friends. Each woman is so very remarkable in her own right and so very strong
To View The Valley
(The Lune Du Lac Chronicles Book 1)
by Bruce Benzel
Ten lives locked on a deadly course for disaster…
For when the fine line between romance and revenge has been crossed, murder and mayhem are soon destined to follow!
The year is 1905, and the small, idyllic town of Lune Du Lac, Wisconsin is about to be rocked to the very core of its socially accepted existence…
When, sickened by the hold big city debauchery has on her family, Ida Bloomfield blackmails her philandering husband into relocating them all from Milwaukee’s dark influence, to the bright promise of a new start in this new town. With their two grown, fraternal twin sons, Albie and Ethan, in tow, Ida is sure life there will be better for them. However, unbeknownst to Ida, her husband, Joseph Bloomfield (corrupt banker and sexual deviant) is unwilling to relinquish the strange relationship he has with his mistress, Annabelle Wainright—and so cleverly he devises an elaborate ruse to move Annabelle along with them. Hiding her in plain sight under the adopted guise of Mrs. Beverly Asher, coal mining heiress/prospective bank depositor, Joseph Bloomfield is intent on keeping their affair alive at all costs.
Meanwhile, Ethan Bloomfield, a confident, scholarly young man, unashamed of his homosexuality, meets naïve, nineteen-year-old Royal Easterly—a neighbor from across the street—and is instantly attracted to him. Royal, eldest of the three Easterly children, and a talented aspiring artist, is also immediately taken by Ethan and succumbs quickly to his charms. With romance burgeoning, things look hopeful—that is until Ethan’s undisclosed past returns to jeopardize their newfound happiness forever.
In turn, Ethan’s twin brother, Albie, a notorious, unabashed playboy, falls helplessly in love with Nina Fowler. A girl of intoxicating beauty, Nina possesses both a keen intellect and a questionable reputation. Desperate to save her father’s failing lumber business, Nina seduces Albie into helping her map out a massive corporate expansion—the likes of which can only be accomplished through a hefty cash investment from Albie’s duplicitous father; a man never to be trusted.
Amidst all this, Royal’s younger sister, Honoria, a determined, but misguided woman driven solely by societal acceptance and the need to emerge at last from her sainted mother’s long-cast shadow, is about to be married to recent medical school graduate, Dr. Brodie Wingate. A product of her town’s close-minded bigotry, Honoria is a racist homophobe. She despises not only her family’s newest neighbors—the Bloomfields, Lune Du Lac’s first Jewish family—but also her brother, Royal, for being a “Nancy.” Unsure as to why their father, Malcolm, so constantly and flagrantly defends his son’s obvious perversion, slowly Honoria pieces together a decades-old mystery of shocking proportions.
Finally, as hundreds gather at Honoria’s wedding reception for the unprecedented social event of the season, a disillusioned woman, one mad with jealousy and hell-bent on revenge, is about to set in motion a deadly series of events that will ultimately change all their lives forever…
Because, as disaster strikes, only time will tell who survives … and who does not.
(The Highland Guard Book 2)
by Monica McCarty
Handpicked by Robert the Bruce to help him in his quest to free Scotland from English rule, the elite warriors of the Highland Guard face their darkest days. When Bruce is forced to flee, his bid for freedom rests on the shoulders of one extraordinary warrior.
Erik MacSorley is a brilliant seafarer who has never encountered a wind he could not harness or a woman he could not win—until he drags a wet, half-naked “nursemaid” out of the waters off the Irish coast. Ellie’s ordinary appearance belies the truth: She is in fact Lady Elyne de Burgh, the spirited daughter of the most powerful noble in Ireland.
Worse, this irresistible woman is determined to prove herself immune to Erik’s charms—a challenge he cannot resist.
Her captor may look every inch a rugged warrior, but Ellie vows that it will take more than a wickedly suggestive caress to impress her. Yet Erik will sweep away Ellie’s resistance with a desire that resonates deep within her heart. Still, he is a man driven by loyalty, and she is a woman with secrets that could jeopardize Bruce’s chance to reclaim his throne. As the battle for king and country sounds across the shores, will Ellie’s love be enough to finally tame the legend known as the Hawk?
