"A Most Exceptional Quest" by Sarah Westleigh "John Smith" was something of a mystery. He had the manners of a gentleman but the instincts of a rake. When beautiful widow Davinia "Vinny" Darling first saw him, she couldn't help but feel an attraction, and a wariness. He had been fighting in the Peninsular War when he wandered into her household. Though he suffered from amnesia, he was an expert card player and hinted of scandal. Vinny used all of her resources to find his lost identity, but wondered if this was what she really wanted. For if he remembered his life, would he still want to be with her?
"An Improper Duenna" by Paula Marshall Miss Chloe Transome, the impoverished dependant of her cousin Serena, Lady Marchingham, was forced to take employment in her household. Little did she guess that she, her cousin and her charge, Marianne, would become rivals for the same man -- the dangerously handsome Sir Patrick Ramsay. To Lady Marchingham's extreme displeasure, Sir Patrick soon began to show a marked preference for Chloe's company -- and for her bed. Patrick had no thoughts of marriage, and Chloe knew she should turn and run, but she refused to relinquish her one chance at life, her one chance to learn the mysteries of the love of a man.
