She refused him once, but it will take every ounce of strength to not give in to the passion that still burns strong…”

She has to pretend to be Remy’s mistress to find Lord Comfry’s journal and the secrets that are held with in. Remy and Emma are explosive together, but Emma still has her doubts about Remy. Will she over come them, solve the mystery and get her hearts desire?

This novella has rich textured seductive scenes. Very well written for smooth reading. There is intrigue and espionage and even a salacious party of debauchery. I loved this spy romance and only wished it could have been a full length novel. I am secretly hoping this is just a taster for a larger series.


duke'sDrake, Duke of Manchester is searching the Marriage Mart for a perfect bride. He wants a woman who is poised, sophisticated, and worthy of the title Duchess. But most of all, he wants a woman who does not want the useless emotion of love.

 Socially awkward Miss Penelope Clayton isn’t meant for marriage. A serious botanist, she has no desire to wed, so being forced by her guardian to participate in the Season to find a husband is torture. She’ll never fit in with the ton, especially if they discover she’s been pretending to be a man within the scientific community.
As Drake’s family makes over Penelope, turning her from naive bluestocking to enchanting debutante, he is put upon to introduce her to society and eligible bachelors. Despite dance lessons and new gowns, Penelope is the opposite of poised and sophisticated as she stumbles from one mishap to the next. Why then, does he find it so hard to resist her?”

Penelope is summoned to London for a season against her wishes. She would much rather stay behind and with her botany specimens. Drake is told to take Penelope under his wing for her first season. Even though Penelope is described as social inept, Drake is still intrigued.

Drake tells her he needs a wife of social importance and should look for a suitor elsewhere. He regrets that and sets about to win her heart again.

I enjoyed reading as the spark of sexual tension turned into a inferno of desire and the discovery of true love. The book was right combination of steamy romance and old fashioned comedic romp. You will not be disappointed with The Duke’s quandary.
