Blurb:
A richly textured and unforgettable Historical Romance by International Bestselling Author Stacy Von Haegert!
Most debutantes meet their intendeds at polite societal gatherings, not over a duel in Hyde park. However, Greyland Kingston is not your typical young lady, and her family is far from conventional.
Alexander Hamilton, Duke of Ravenswood, is about to find out how unique the family is when he becomes unwittingly entangled with the newly arrived Kingston’s from New Orleans–one family member in particular.
With her spirited personality and innocent aversion to all things proper, Greyland Kingston completely throws him off his well-established game. The gossip fans start to flutter when Greyland, her two older brothers and distinguished father, make their debut. Who is this family? How do they know the Queen? Why does the patriarch look like the ghost of the long-ago Plantagenet King, Edward the IV?
Trouble ensues in the form of jealous women, ambitious men, and a vengeful Irish clan. Alexander quickly finds that having Greyland for his own will come at a steep price…
And he must risk everything to keep her protected.

The sound of thundering hooves trampling over the earth brought Alex’s mind right back to the present. All three men jerked their heads toward the intrusion. A bay steed burst through the bush carrying a wild-eyed girl. Her beautifully carved slender legs were exposed up to her knees and she was missing one of her slippers.
The horse immediately sensed the wolf and reared straight up. Surprisingly, the bareback rider managed to hug tight to the beast’s neck and stayed on. As the front hooves made contact with the ground—and before the horse could rise in protest again—the girl catapulted off the side and unsuccessfully grabbed for the reins. The mare bolted away.
“Damn!” she said, simply annoyed, as if she had lost a shilling rather than a thoroughbred.
“What on earth!” Perkin’s previous calm appearance all but shattered into a thousand pieces in front of them.
“Is that a wolf?” The girl’s sites fixated on Malikite, a glint in her bright eyes, her breathing coming hard, causing her small breasts to rise and fall, threatening to escape a much-too-slack bodice.
Alex stared. Who on earth had helped this poor woman dress? Clearly a dressing-maid with a vengeance. Unless the young lady before them was newly escaped from the asylum. Which might explain the entry.
The girl was completely disheveled. A twig dangled from her raven-black curls. Windblown pink cheeks decorated her milk-white skin and a bead of perspiration highlighted her cupid-bow lips. Her eyes were like the palest green of the sea, and they raged as wild as a developing storm. Never in his wildest dreams had he ever thought a woman could be this…inspiring. Captivating. Alive! She had to be from the asylum, Alex concluded. Someone’s daughter or young bride that had lost her wits and had to be committed.
Still, she was magnificent, albeit likely touched in the head. Alexander felt a stir in his fawn-colored trousers. He tried to retrieve his thoughts from their rapid downward descent. He could have any woman in London and had turned down half of them in the past month alone due to a lack of interest. Now here he was, the Duke of Ravenswood, in the middle of the park getting brought to life by a lunatic. Gone completely was the conundrum of the previous conversation with Perkin Kingston. The issue at hand now may well be his own dwindling sanity.

Shanghai 1879

Two sisters, one driving desire for passion.

After her sister’s successful marriage, Isabelle Forster is sure she’ll only ever be an old maid aunt. That is until she meets Langdon Deveraux. He’s tall, he’s dashing, and he excites her enough to take a walk on the wild side. But with only a month to explore Shanghai before her sister and brother-in-law have decreed they must return to England, time is short.

Langdon wants Isabelle from the first moment they meet, but with the news that she’s leaving shortly, he’s propelled into action after she makes an advance that leaves him reeling. Marriage is the only answer, but he’s got other pressing issues: hunting down the opium importers and pressure from his superior to see if the Forster sisters are involved.

Between the opium problem and issues with running Forster Shipping, Isabelle is learning to accept her sexuality and changed circumstances. It’s going to make the first weeks of marriage full of adventure and danger.

Her love of Westerns came about because of the movies and TV shows of her childhood. Some of her favorites were Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Wagon Train and Little House on The Prairie.

Many of her novels have been inspired by true events, with one being written around the hardships and triumphs of her pioneering ancestors. She once spent a couple of hours in an old prison cell so she could feel the chilling cold and fear.

Apart from her family and friends, writing is her passion.

Two Scandals are Better than One

Title: Two Scandals Are Better Than One
Series: Harrow’s Finest Five
Author: Nancy Yeager
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: May 30, 2019

 

 

 

A foray into London’s seedy underworld will unmask their hidden desires. 

 

A gentleman on an illicit lark
Edward, the upstanding Viscount Meriden, is desperate for one reckless adventure. After years of holding his crumbling family together, he finally has the chance at one night of abandon at a debauched house party, where he meets a masked mystery woman. He longs to uncover all her secrets. But when he realizes she’s an old friend on a dangerous mission, he insists on becoming her protector.
A lady on a dangerous quest
Miss Lucinda Wagner is the only woman in a family of men rumored to be spies. When her father goes missing, she infiltrates a treacherous world to find him. No one suspects her double life until her childhood friend Edward discovers her secret. Now “Steady Eddie” insists upon watching over her. To gain his silence, she allows him join her search.
A journey into the belly of the beast
As Luci and Edward delve deeper into the criminal underworld, their lives turn upside down. Danger lurks around every corner. Threats assail them from all sides, and the only safe harbor in the city is in each other’s arms. Until the sparks between them threaten to ignite their long-denied passion.

 

 

Luci steeled her spine in preparation for Lord Edward’s questions. What are you doing here, Miss Wagner? Why are you wearing that mask? Where is your father? Do you know what my sister will do when she finds out I met you at a den of iniquities and didn’t immediately drag you out of it?
But he wasn’t asking anything. He wasn’t speaking at all. He was staring at her again, as he had when they had spotted each other across the room, like he had when he had sat down beside her. He had the look of a man who had just woken from the most pleasant dream, but was still half in it. And for the life of her, she swore he hadn’t recognized her, that he still didn’t recognize her.

 

He slowly looked her up and down, his gaze lingering over every exposed inch of skin—and there were more than were decent—and every curve exhibited by her expertly fitted costume. “Do you have any idea how beautiful you are?” His look was feral and possessive, but his voice was silky smooth and calming. 

 

She had known this man since she had been five and he had been Emme’s protective ten-year-old brother. When she was twelve, she had said more prayers than she would care to admit that her best friend’s seventeen-year-old brother would be moved to kiss her, which he never had. She had rolled her eyes when she was seventeen and learned he had taken a lovely but boring young widow as his mistress. But in fifteen years of knowing him, he had never sent such a shock of awareness through her body.

 

The man looking at her right now, the man who had come to this depraved party for a purpose she couldn’t fathom, had no thought for protection or integrity or discretion. The man ravishing her with his gaze believed she was a stranger.

 

 

“I’m sorry for what that horrible man said to you. And I have no expectation…” He shook his head. “That’s not true. Perhaps I did have an expectation, or at least a hope.”

 

He stepped close to her and slowly lifted his hand toward her face, stopping just inches from touching her. Luci didn’t know whether her heart pounded most from the worry he might pull off her mask, the hope he might kiss her, or the fear he wouldn’t.

 

“I won’t touch you if you don’t wish it.”

She shouldn’t be in this house. It had been foolish to come looking for the leader of the Elephant and Castle gang, as her father would tell her if they were here. But he wasn’t. Her father’s disappearance was at the root of all of this. 

 

But Edward had kept her safe. Whomever he was trying to be right now, whatever role he was playing, Steady Eddie was still at the center of this man. He was a good man. A fierce protector. And whether it was fear, adrenaline, or sheer attraction, she desperately wanted him to kiss her.

 

 

“The lady gives her permission for a kiss. Just a kiss.”

 

Nancy spent her early years longing to be an English countryside vet thanks to James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small series, and an adventurist archaeologist like George Lucas’s Indiana Jones character. After studying veterinary pre-med and earning an anthropology degree, she realized her true passion is story in all its forms. 

 

 

 

When Nancy’s not writing, reading, or binge-watching story, she’s often pursuing a physical challenge like studying Krav Maga or aspiring to achieve the perfect crow pose. She also spends her time drinking too much coffee, not enough red wine, and just the right amount of Bourbon. She lives in Maryland with her fabulous family, which includes some very spoiled rescue cats.
