Ever His Bride 

– A Victorian Romance –

The Darkest Heart

His looming form blocks the firelight. His voice is like midnight fog, shivering along her skin. Yet Felicity Mayfield must marry hard, cold Hunter Claybourne, or go to debtor’s prison. Boldly, she proposes a bargain to the wealthy financier: she’ll become his wife in name only for one brief year-if he allows her the freedom to continue living an independent life as a roving travel writer.


The Deepest Love

Hunter never suspected a wife would be such a nuisance. It was supposed to be a simple business arrangement. Instead, she has invaded his cavernous home — rearranging the furniture, winning over his servants, blinding him with sunlight. Her constant presence is unsettling, her lavender scent everywhere, her skin a soft temptation. Suddenly it seems only right that she should wear his ring … and share his bed. After all, she is his wife. Yet even as Felicity opens a chink in Hunter’s heart, her exposé of the scandalous workhouses threatens to uncover his darkest secret, forcing him to choose between his hard-won empire and the miracle of love.

– Reviews –

“The plot twists… are refreshingly different from other historical romances, and Claybourne is a fascinating hero.”

Nanci Hellmich, USA TODAY

“AMAZON — My Favorite Book of All Time
I bought this book when it was a new release and I read it until the pages fell out, this is my fifth copy of this book. Strong hero’s with a chink in the armor has always been my weakness, only next to cute, spicy, quirky heroines. This book is everything, well written, engaging, sweet, sexy and passionate. I highly recommend this book, it will always be my very favorite.”

 “If you want hot sex from the first page and on, then skip this one. There is hot sex, but it happens in the appropriate place in the story. I was so, so surprised that I liked this book. Take my advice and give it a try.”
