A novel by

"Their love story is funny, romantic, and very sexy in Alicia Quigley's hot but tasteful way, as they struggle with the smugglers and their pre-conceived notions about each other. A very fun read - highly recommended!" ~ Reader review

Malcolm Arlingby, Rowena's headstrong brother from A Collector's Item, settles into his new life as the Earl of Wroxton. Content to while away his time in the decadence he missed during his exile from England, Malcolm hasn't been paying attention to the duties that come with the title. A letter from the mistress of a neighboring estate warns of smugglers using Malcolm's lands for their dastardly deeds and he must finally put aside his entertainments to handle the business of being an Earl.

Helena Keighley, the one who sent the letter, is not the sour spinster Malcolm was expecting, however. She is a beautiful, vibrant and equally headstrong woman who is more than ready to take Malcolm to task for ignoring his duties. As the pair becomes embroiled in solving the problem of the smugglers, a strong attraction develops. The smugglers aren't going without a fight, though.

Will his new neighbor bring Malcolm all the things he never knew he wanted? Or, will the smugglers destroy it all? Find out in The Contraband Courtship.
