A deadly curse.
When two goddesses clash, a cursed object is hurled through time. A scorpion necklace, beautiful but deadly, surfaces again and again over the centuries with the power to level cities and destroy mankind.

A timeless battle.
From ancient Ireland to near-future New York, the necklace calls to those with the propensity for evil, energizing the wicked and, when worn, bringing disaster to the wearer and turning the good to bad.

A love worth fighting for.
Honorable men and women have fought to keep the necklace safely hidden, its dark magic carefully buried for the good of humanity. But over the years, the necklace and its powers have been unveiled. Only an act of selfless love can break the curse—if the soulmates can find each other in time.

A scandalous marquess, a devilish duke and one slightly damaged earl. 

Wicked’s Scandal

A beautiful spinster is ruined at the hands of the ton’s most infamous rake – and becomes London’s biggest scandal.

Devil of a Duke

The seduction of a reckless heiress by a mysterious stranger…

Jemma Manning is nearly betrothed to the Lord Governor’s son and is unhappily accepting the proper life Bermuda society and her father dictates when she comes to the aid of Nick Shepherd. Mr. Shepherd entices her with the promise of seduction and other dark, wicked things.

Nick Shepherd was never in need of rescue, especially from a young woman who is masquerading as a lad. When he sees Jemma again, this time in a dress, Nick decides it will be no hardship to ruin Jemma. Besides, what better way to avenge his family’s honor than by destroying hers?

Nick must make a choice. Love or revenge. He cannot have both.

A steamy, sexy romp through post-Regency Bermuda and London. Book 2 of the Wickeds series by bestselling author Kathleen Ayers.

My Wicked Earl

Lady Miranda Reynolds has finally decided to wed.

Unfortunately she’s now firmly on the shelf, scandal ridden and only the most desperate gentlemen are willing to court her. Hard to believe she was once the most sought-after young lady in London. But that was before Colin Hartley ruined her. 

Colin Hartley, the Earl of Kilmaire is in desperate need of an heiress. He’s not particular about his future bride.  Passably attractive. Rich. Inspires no affection in him at all. The only woman he’s ever loved jilted him to marry a future duke. He’s avoided London and love for six long years. 

Except Miranda didn’t marry a duke.  Or an earl.  Or anyone. It’s as if she’s been waiting for someone.


A steamy, sexy romp through post-Regency London. Book 3 of the Wickeds series by bestselling author Kathleen Ayers.

The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with a client, which shouldn’t be a problem when one’s faking an engagement to the rogue across the street . . .

Ainsley Bourne needs the family business to succeed. But one obstacle stands in her way—Reed Sterling, the huge, handsome, former prize fighter and owner of the gaming hell across the street. His scandalous customers scare off all her marriage-minded patrons and since the devilish brute has no intention of relocating, she sets out to ruin his unsavory establishment. Yet when a vile suitor from her past reappears, Ainsley hastily claims an attachment to the first man who comes to mind . . . Mr. Sterling, to be exact.

Reed doesn’t know who is more surprised by Miss Bourne’s declaration. She clearly hates him, and he’d never admit their arguments simmer with unrequited attraction. Something about the pleading look in her eyes calls to Reed, and against his better judgment, he quickly plays the part of the besotted fiancé.

Pretending to be in love requires a convincing charade. But with each tantalizing touch and every scandalous kiss, Ainsley starts to wonder if Reed was ever really the enemy at all.
