Ex-cop Alec Fontana may not be able to patrol the streets of Boston anymore, but when his aunt, a college president, asks him to investigate whether an esteemed professor is preying sexually on his students, he’s up to the task. He’s a city boy, and a few weeks in a college-owned apartment near the bucolic campus would be a nice change of pace. But the woman in the apartment directly below his is a distraction. Lauren Wyler is beautiful and mysterious. Through the floor, Alec can hear her playing the piano like a virtuoso—until her performance turns into a painful mess of mistakes. How can someone with so much talent play so poorly? With each note, Alec’s obsession with his downstairs neighbor grows. Will that obsession heal Lauren or wound her beyond repair? Winner of RT Magazine’s Reviewers Choice Award.

She never thought time-travel was real. Until it happened to her... Researching her father's journals in her spare time was closest Francine came to time-travel and frankly, who would believe it? But when she's tossed back in time, she regrets she didn't pay more attention to the past... of course that's only after she finally admits to herself that she's been tossed into another world, much like a Victorian freaky-Friday. The first thing Francine has to reconcile is that a woman in Victorian England is a commodity. She's owned. Francine is no longer the powerful business woman she was only moments ago and on top of it all she's being chased by a man who wants her dead—or worse. Her only chance for safety lies in Gideon Trumbull the lionhearted—but evasive—duke who discovers her: terrified, running for her life, at the edge of his lands. What began as a compulsion to learn anything she could about him turns into an urgent need and she finds herself in an inescapable new reality—a world in which she doesn't belong. °•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•° Meanwhile... Gideon's brother Perry has likewise been caught up in an incident. Finding a stowaway housemaid in his carriage as he's bound for London will be the most life-changing moment of his life. She's plotting to seduce the rake who refuses to touch her. Propriety be damned. Getting him to teach her what love is seems like just the right challenge to sooth her damaged soul. Until the man who chased Francine sets his sites on someone much more accessible. The entire Trumbull family comes together to protect the women they've accepted into the fold in the first installment in the Trumbull Family Saga, The Rake and The Recluse.
