LORDS OF NIGHT STREET COLLECTION
Born into wealth and privilege, the Lords of Night Street have vowed to serve those most in need. They navigate the glittering ballrooms of society and London's criminal underworld with equal ease, leading the fight for love and justice.
Nicholas, Earl of Attwood wanted a docile wife, instead, he ends up with the scholarly Grace Esseltte. A dowdy spinster with a tart mouth and dangerous secrets. But he soon realizes there is a great deal more to her, and with that knowledge comes something else... the heart he'd thought would never love, has learned to do exactly that.
She vowed to never marry, but her clumsiness is finally her downfall. Compromised, there is little for Grace to do but wed the stern Earl, but she refuses to yield to him in any way. However, soon she understands the man behind the gruff facade and concedes his tender gestures and honorable ways are in danger of stealing her heart.
When Miss Charlotte Radley arrives on his doorstep, claiming she needs help from the Lords of Night Street, Viscount Needly is intrigued. She lives in one of the most notorious parts of London and runs a halfway house for ladies of the night, yet her speech and manner tell him she is a lady. Determined to uncover the truth about his mysterious new client, Marcus's investigations find that not only is Charlotte more than she seems - she's also in grave danger. He knows that it's no longer just her safety involved - his own survival would be in question if he lost the one woman who had given his life meaning.
Charlotte has no time to listen to the arrogant Viscount. She has chosen the path she wishes to tread, and if that includes the occasional dangerous foray into the more seedy areas of London then so be it. She will do what must be done to care and protect her girls. But when someone tries to stop her it is to Lord Needly she must turn to for help, and in doing so she risks what she'd always believed was safe... her heart.
Viscount Hatherton has met no one like Miss Poppy March. Exquisite, headstrong, and reckless. The more time he spends with her, the more he understands that she is what is missing in his life. She's warmed the cold places in his heart and brought him into the light. Can he keep her safe and convince her of his love when she is determined to keep them apart?
Poppy is on a dangerous quest to expose the fiend she believes is poisoning her employer. She enlists his help of the disturbing Viscount but soon realizes that he is as malleable as an Oak Tree. He does not follow instruction well and insists that instead, she follow his! She vows to keep him at arm's length, but her traitorous heart has other ideas.
Finding himself in a sudden betrothal with the woman who makes him feel like he's rolling in stinging nettle is proving to be a challenge for the notorious Marquis of Vereton. He and the exquisite Miss Elizabeth Witlow had always disliked each other, or so Leo believed. So when he makes his audacious proposal, no-one's more shocked than Leo that Beth agrees.
Feigning being in love with the Marquis of Vereton isn't quite as hard as Beth anticipated. He's a consummate lover whose skill in the bedroom is only exceeded by his determination to uncover her long-buried secrets and intense desire to protect her. Beth soon realizes that Leo won't settle for being a faux fiance. He wants more than her body... he needs her total trust too. And that is the most dangerous risk of all.
