Make Believe Bride (Marriage by Fate: Book 4)
Due out July 21!
Nicholas Lidgate, the Duke of Ravenshire, needs to marry a lady who comes from a wealthy family. His father left a large sum of debt, and if he doesn’t pay it off, he’ll be sent to debtor’s prison. He has two very important advantages: he is a prominent member of the Ton and no one knows his secret. If he can secure a marriage to a lady from a wealthy family, all of his problems will be over.
Or at least that’s what he thinks…
He proposes to Miss Tara Webb because her dowry will be enough to pay the debts and leave him with a comfortable lifestyle. He doesn’t mind the fact that she only agrees to the marriage because her connection to him will bring her social group back in good standing. A marriage of convenience suits him just fine.
What he does mind, however, is the fact that her brother turns out to be one of his father’s debtors, and her brother isn’t one to play fair. The more Nicholas gets to know Tara, the more he ends up falling in love with her.
And her brother will use that to his advantage.
The Perfect Wife (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 3)
Second draft done! Off to editing team!
Mark Larson knows it’s wrong to trick another woman into marrying his twin brother so he can marry Natalie Harper, but he’s not the type to let something as insignificant as a moral dilemma stop him from getting what he wants. Natalie is perfect for him. And besides, his brother would rather marry the other woman. So what’s the harm in a little deception?
However, Natalie doesn’t see things that way. Though she is attracted to him, she doesn’t know if she can trust him. If he’s willing to deceive his own brother, then what kind of husband will he make? To make matters worse, Mark runs a business with his father, and she is expected to entertain the people he hopes to work with. She’s never done anything like host dinner parties and impress others. The other woman would have been a much better fit for him. So not only does she worry she can’t believe her new husband, but she’s sorely out of place in her new role as his wife.
Just how are the two supposed to have a happily ever after when they are so poorly matched?
One Enchanted Evening (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 2)

While he has to marry for money, he doesn’t want to marry just anyone. He wants a love match. But he doesn’t even know where to begin in finding the perfect bride. And worse, he has a terrible time being romantic. He doesn’t know the first thing about being a suitor.
His friend offers the perfect solution to his problem. He’ll host a masquerade ball and invite all of the available wealthy ladies in London to attend. Then, Lewis can meet them, and the masks will help Lewis overcome his shyness.
Miss Marcy Shoemark hadn’t originally planned to go to the ball. She’s a lady’s maid. She has no money to offer a prospective husband. But when she finds out the purpose of the masquerade ball is for Lewis to find a wife, she decides to attend it. She’s been secretly in love with him, and this is the one chance she has to get him to know her as a lady, not as a servant who’s out of his reach.
Her plan works. She manages to get his attention. But sooner or later, the masquerade has to end, and she has to reveal the fact that she’s only a servant. Will he still want to marry her once he discovers the truth? Or will he choose a wealthy lady who can secure his estate?

And since she’s been subjected to some of their ridiculous schemes, Ben’s been nothing but an annoying nuisance. So when Ben forces her hand in marriage, she’s furious. How could he do something that has just changed her entire life without any thought to whether or not she even wanted it?
Though Annabelle refuses to believe it, Ben’s motives were good. If he hadn’t stepped in to marry her when he did, she would have ended up with a man known for unscrupulous behavior. The trouble is, she refuses to believe him, and worse, she won’t even give him a chance to prove he can be a good husband. So in a desperate move to figure out how he can make her fall in love with him, he disguises himself as a woman and joins her lady’s group.
