Ladies Who Dare

(A book in the Allingham Regency Classic series)
An omnibus of novels by

Scandal and Betrayal. Mystery and Adventure. Amid the elegance of Regency England, six spirited heroines dare to challenge society in their search for true love.

Dance of Deception

Amelie Milverton is fleeing her betrothal to a vicious, degenerate man. Disguised as a maidservant, she climbs out of her bedroom window, but there's a problem ... 

Gareth Denville, wrongly accused of cheating at cards, was once driven from the city by scandal, but his return to London has been a mistake ...

Escaping together, the attraction between them builds, but both have secrets they cannot tell and their love stays unspoken. Until Amelie faces the most extreme danger and the time for pretence is over. But is it too late?

Duchess of Destiny

Facing penury, Elinor Milford is urged by her dying mother to seek help from Amersham Hall, but the owner is a rich and powerful duke. What connection can Elinor have to this vast estate? Disguised as a dairymaid, she sets out to unearth the secrets of her birth.

Gabriel Claremont wants only to forget a painful past, spending his life in the shallow company of dissipated men, yet the new dairymaid, with her mousy clothes and modest demeanour, intrigues him. Despite his vow to live without love, he finds himself fighting a tangle of fierce emotions.

How far will Elinor and Gabriel go to unravel the threads of their past - and discover their future?


Luke Trelawny, the new Earl, has returned to England, toughened by years abroad and very much his own man. Six years ago he was jilted by his beautiful childhood friend, Cassie Latimer, three weeks before the wedding, and when he meets her again, a dangerous temptation hangs in the air.

It's revenge, though, not love, that Luke seeks. He will teach Cassie a lesson and show her that he can command her, body and soul - then he'll walk away.
But can he truly suppress a love that has never died?

Romancing the Rake

Marianna Marquez appears the most innocent of girls: young, lovely and chaste. But all is not what it seems, and a summer spent in Brighton promises every delectable temptation ...

Mr Joshua Marchmain is reputed to be society's most scandalous rake: tall and wickedly handsome, with a dangerous allure that can disgrace even the purest of ladies ...

An overwhelming force draws Marianna and Joshua together - but there are those in society who would stop at nothing to keep them apart.

Dangerous Disguise

Jack Beaufort, the wealthy Earl of Frensham, is forced to retreat to the country, a scandal at his heels. The last thing he expects to face in this quiet retreat is a highwayman. Or to discover, when he lays hands on the villain, a form that is undeniably female.

Lucinda Lacy will do anything to save her brother and give him a second chance, including highway robbery. The last thing she expects is a victim who comes close to capturing her. Or that he’ll turn out to be the man she’s supposed to marry.

Should Jack unmask the daring Miss Lacey and hand her over to the law, or join her in the dangerous game she’s playing? Can Lucinda trust Jack not to give her away - and not to marry her?

Lizzie Meets Her Match

When lady’s companion, Elizabeth Ingram, sees handsome Sir Justin Delacourt for the first time, she decides he is just the man to enliven her dull life. But Justin has a disdain for womanly wiles and is determined not to succumb. Yet he can’t get the lively Lizzie out of his mind.

Lizzie has secrets she has no wish to share and so, it turns out, does Justin. Facing danger together, are they brave enough to embrace a different future?
