Bennett Markham, Earl of Dunning, needs an heir, which means he needs to find a wife first. His only requirements are that his bride not be a fortune-hunter and absolutely cannot love him, now or ever.
Love is not in the cards for Markham men.
Elena Sebastiano is more than a little surprised when the Earl asks her to play matchmaker for him. They barely know each other, so how is she supposed to choose the perfect bride? Nonetheless, the challenge intrigues her.
But what's a woman to do when she wants the man for herself? Convince him no one will do but her...
Daniela Bertalan loves to matchmake so when the wife of an old childhood friend—who also happens to be the King of Mordainia—asks her to help make a match for the king’s half-brother, Daniela is happy to assist. Happy that is, until she meets Luka Morovic.
General Luka Morovic is less than thrilled when the king asks him to keep an eye on their guest. But he is pleasantly surprised to find Daniela is neither spoiled nor pampered. Instead, she is spirited and unlike any other woman he has ever met, and a friendship he never expected quickly comes to life.
But when that friendship appears to be growing into something more, Daniela knows she needs to put a stop to it. She’s made a promise to match him with another and knows she must step aside. And in doing so, she just might ruin what might be her last chance for true happiness.
Crown Prince Stefan Vanechka has no choice but to accept the bride chosen for him, whom he’s never met. The woman chosen to be his queen has the gift of second sight and because of this, he will do what he must in order to protect his people and his throne, even if it means taking a wife he doesn’t want.
Kristian Petroviya never knew she was betrothed at birth to the future King of Mordainia. Rather, she was raised by an aunt who used her gift for her own advantage. Marriage to anyone, least of all a future king, was the furthest thing on her mind and the last thing she wished to do.
As they journey on, neither can deny the growing attraction between them. But when Kristian discovers the truth as to why he has come for her, and what her gift means for the future of his reign, it threatens to destroy not only lifelong friendships and growing trust, but Mordainia’s existence as well.
Taking one more risk could win them everything…or leave them with nothing.
For Katie Dunn, finding work as a maid at Marchand Hall is a new start in every way possible. She has a proper job now, and friends that treat her like family. No one in Bermuda knows about her shadowy past, and she plans to keep it that way.
The last thing she needs is to cross paths with one of those shadows—a man who shattered her trust.
Setting foot in Marchand Hall is both blessing and curse for Captain Rafe Sebastiano. In return for Lord Marchand’s help in saving his family business, Rafe has agreed to marry his benefactor’s daughter, whom he counts as a friend but does not love. That word is reserved for the biggest mistake he ever made. The woman he let slip through his fingers.
When Rafe and Katie inevitably come face to face, the pain of old wounds is as fresh as the fire that still burns between them. But if they aren’t careful, they could repeat the mistakes of the past—and doom themselves to a future empty of love.
Warning: This book contains steamy situations, a catfight or two, a colorful madam, and the belief that happily ever after just might be possible.
