Book 1 - The Bachelor Chronicles series
Every Gentleman in England Wants a Wife like Her — Beautiful Uncomplaining, and Never Underfoot. There is definitely Something about Emmaline
Perhaps it's the fact that she doesn't exist! Alexander Denford, Baron Sedgwick, invented a gentle, subservient, never seen "wife" for the sole purpose of deterring the ton's marriage-minded ladies and their infernal matchmaking mothers—thereby enabling him to enjoy his frequent late nights and lustful dalliances in peace. So imagine Alex's surprise when a stunning stranger appears in his private bedchamber . . . and brazenly announces that she is "Lady Sedgwick!"
This "Emmaline" has been living by her wits her entire life — and dearly desires what the dashing, much chagrined rake can provide: an entry into good society. In the meantime, she is plunging his household into chaos and, worse still, wreaking havoc with his heart. For there's something about her spirit and fiery sensuality that Alex is finding impossible to resist. But before he can make his perfect love his actual bride, he'll have to somehow become the ideal husband he never dreamed he could be.
