Bombay, India, 1870 and Elspeth Merryweather has lost both her parents. She has two choices: return to England, to a homeland she has never visited, or marry the devil, in the form of Captain Henry Wooten. She chooses the latter; marriage to the captain. She quickly regrets her hastily made decision, especially when she finds herself sent back to England alone and unescorted. She is wholly unprepared to meet another man, Professor Adam Beresford, who is returning to Britain with a mystical stone in his possession. On the voyage, Adam proves himself to be everything that her husband is not - he is firm but kind, and Elspeth soon learns the difference between Wooten's abuse and Adam's loving correction.<br /><br />A woman is made up of many aspects of personality and Elspeth is no exception. A young Victorian woman whose character has been formed by necessity, she is lifted from despair and given hope, but then a cruel twist of fate changes everything. A simple courageous act on her part leaves her with total amnesia. Remembering nothing of her previous life, she awakens in a void, with no memories of the cruelties she has suffered or the love she has recently found. Can Elspeth, a lost waif, survive the rigors of poverty in the harshness of Victorian London?<br /><br />Turning to mudlarking as a way of survival, can she create enough strength to sustain her through these desperate times? Will her loving professor find her before it is too late? Will Elspeth have enough personal courage to become her own person and rekindle the passion she once felt for her lost love, even when she cannot remember his name? Can an emerald, the mystical Shiromani, help bring them together to form bonds that were lost?<br /><br />Vanessa Brooks brings you her new Victorian melodrama, one that will enthrall you and carry you on a journey spanning the distance from India all the way to Victorian England during the 1870s. This is an epic tale that encompasses betrayal and a lasting love that knows no bounds.<br /><br />Publisher's Note: This book is intended for adults only. It contains elements of power exchange, domestic discipline, and explicit sexual scenes including anal play. If any of these elements offend you, please do not purchase.

You'll find all of this, and much more in this huge boxed set.<br /><br />The Duke’s Heart<br />Dorothea is content with her life as a governess. She lives on a manor in the countryside and the distance from the city suits her well. She loves her charges and her employer is understanding and kind. What more could a poor vicar's daughter need?<br /><br />The Marriage Arrangement<br />Damien is quite happy that his future wife is such a beautiful girl. What he doesn't like is the condition she places on their marriage. He hadn't planned to give up his womanizing ways, yet now he wondered about that logic.<br /><br />The Baronet’s Daughters<br />Sophia and Elise Richmond need to marry well. They come from modest wealth, but their father is trying to look out for them. They aren't in line for any inheritance, so the perfect marriage for the girls will involve money. The sisters did want to marry, but they both wanted to marry for love. Neither would settle for less.<br /><br />To Marry for Love<br />Viviana has met the man of her dreams. He is perfect in every way. Gwendolyn, her overprotective guardian, disagrees. Viviana is forbidden to see Nicholas again.

It wasn't that she didn't want a husband, she just hated the crowds and false joy of the parties. And then when she finally met a man she knew she could love, he was quickly taken by another. She knew she was unremarkable compared to the other young women in society, but she still managed some hope that she would marry for love.<br /><br />The Earl’s Unconventional Bride<br />Lady Amelia Grey is smart. This isn't typical of the women in her circle. She's not satisfied with the men she meets. They all want silly, uninformed women who take them at their word.

She was the daughter of a clergyman and marrying the wealthy, handsome, and desirable Hugh Warren. She could not wait to be his wife!<br /><br />The Captain’s Lost Love<br />Anna-Maria and Captain Laurence have a past. A past that she remembers fondly every day. Back then, she naively believed that he would choose her for his very own, but that hadn’t happened.

But Georgiana has a suitor who Elizabeth suspects is not all he seems. Her only hope of saving her friend from the clutches of Mr Wickham is to write to Georgiana's proud older brother, Mr Darcy. Elizabeth is forced to put aside her own dislike for the man and persuade him that his sister is in danger. <br /><br />But as she gets to know him better, it soon becomes clear that she has been just as deceived by Mr Darcy's true character as she was by Wickham's. Is it possible she has judged him too hastily? And as for Mr Darcy, could it be that the pert, yet bewitching Miss Bennet is exactly the woman he has been searching for? A Pride and Prejudice variation from the author of An Encounter at Pemberley.<br /><br />A Compromise At Rosings Park:<br />After Mr Darcy's disastrous proposal at Rosings Park, Elizabeth is forced to follow him to return his hat before it is discovered he was there.

<b>This is an enduring novel of great depth. Beautifully written, it explores how far the human spirit will journey for freedom and love. This story was a real pleasure to read. Highly recommended.</b> Historical Novel Reviews <br /><br /><i>She thought she could outrun her past. . .</i><br /> <br />It is 1811, and the prosperous port city of Charleston is bustling with plantation owners, slaves, and immigrants. Immigrants such as the raven-haired Adalia Winston. But Adalia has a secret: her light skin belies that she is part black and a runaway slave from Barbados. Skilled in herbal remedies, Adalia finds employment with a local doctor and settles into a quiet life, thankful for her freedom but still fearful that her owner will find her.<br /> <br />Born into one of Charleston’s prominent families, Morgan Rutledge is handsome, bored—and enamored of the beautiful Adalia, who spurns his advances. Morgan’s persistence, however, finally wins, and Adalia is swept into the glamorous world of Charleston high society.<br /> <br />But her new life comes at a high price—that of denying her heritage and her zeal for God. How far is Adalia willing to go to win the heart of the man she loves? And when her secret is revealed, will that love be enough, or will the truth ruin Morgan and send Adalia back into slavery? <br /><br /><b>This book was brilliant.

Maressa Douglass has been through many ups and downs in her short life. From slavery to finally reuniting her entire family in the wholesome little community of Sweet Town, she never wants to see them torn apart again. Her own budding dreams of studying medicine will have to be set aside as unrealistic in these circumstances, as outlandish as her accepting the courting efforts of Pierre Dubois, the French painter in town who's been making eyes at her.<br /><br />The mine Pierre has been toiling away in is finally about to pay off and give him the freedom to focus on his art once more, but an ill-timed explosion has devastating effects on the town water supply. As Maressa steps in to avert a deadly disease outbreak with an experimental treatment, she and Pierre must scandalously work together.<br /><br />With every hour bringing them closer to an explosive solution, a forbidden love is growing. Will they follow their dreams or will fear tear them apart for good?<br /><br />In the shadow of wild Deadwood sits quiet Sweet Town. Established in the Dakota Gold Rush of the 1870s, Sweet Town is surrounded by gentle hills and fields of clover. It's a place where anyone can start over and redemption is never out of reach.<br /><br />Sweet Town romances tell the stories of the community as its members fall in love. These inspiring stories explore the power of charity, the nature of good and evil, and all the miracles that can happen when you open your heart.
