Book 1: Lord Reginald Reggie isn’t suited to a career, so his sister-in-law finds him a wealthy heiress to support his indulgent lifestyle. But when he sets out to court her, he finds that his title and family connections aren’t nearly enough to entice the lady, and he has to become a little bit creative to attract her attention. When a rival for her hand appears, he must decide whether to set aside his principles and fight for her, or to put her happiness above the love growing in his own heart. Now available at $2.99.

Book 2: Lord Humphrey  Lord Humphrey Marford has a way with cards, dice and gambling of all forms. He’d love to start his own gaming house, but that takes a lot of money, far more than he or his brothers can come up with. His only solution is to marry an heiress, and he can’t be too choosy. Miss Hortensia Blythe seems perfect – pretty, charming and very, very rich, she’s just home from India where her father made a fortune in the East India Company, and left her every penny of it. But even as he courts the ladylike but rather dull Miss Blythe, Humphrey is drawn to her companion, who isn’t nearly so ladylike and not in the least dull. Unfortunately, she isn’t rich, either. Whatever is he to do? Now available to pre-order at just $2.99.

Book 5: Grace Grace’s four older sisters have married and moved away, and life is very quiet and boring. It’s so stifling being female, occupying herself with her tapestry or painting, when she’d much rather have been a soldier, galloping about with a sword in her hand. She wouldn’t mind marrying, because who wants to be an old maid? But all her suitors are dullards who are only interested in her dowry. If only something exciting would happen!

Book 6: Hope Hope has no wish to marry, but it’s almost five years since her father died, and the final peculiar clause of his will is about to come into effect: if Hope’s brothers can’t be found, then the whole estate will be bequeathed to the church, and Hope must move to the Dower House with her mother. There’s just one way out: her cousin Hugo can inherit Allamont Hall, but only if he marries Hope. Can she bear to give up the chance of finding a man who loves her, even if it means saving her home?
