Featured Books of the Week

“One simply has not experienced pleasure until a Gypsy Gentleman has shared one’s bed.” An Anonymous London hostess, Carlton House, 1815 

Six men, united by war, form a friendship bonded by mutual respect and affection. Tired of fighting, they travel to England, cutting a swath through London’s Society with their music, their good looks and their outrageous sensuality. Each man is possessed of secrets better kept hidden, but together they are a force for good - and a delightful danger to the women who adore them. 

Hungarian Viktor Karoly is the ideal “Gypsy”. Dark, handsome and musically gifted, Viktor is growing tired of their London evenings, and accepts an invitation to visit Lord Eventyde’s country home. What he finds there? Something magical that casts a spell over both himself and the nymph dancing to the sound of his violin. 

Pyotr Josef is not in the least troubled to be on his own, misdirecting villains and leading them on a chase to nowhere in the English countryside. He is, however, considerably troubled when a body falls on him from a tree and he discovers to his utter astonishment that it is that of a young woman. And one he knows all too well. His secrets are secrets no more, and although the danger to his person is in the past, the danger to his heart has just begun… 

Persistence. Peril. Parenthood.
Not necessarily in that order.

Rein Mackenzie is doing his darnedest to give Liberty her wish of starting a family. Ready for action every time his wife's ringtone--Wild Thing--summons him, the man is giving parenthood his best shot.

Liberty Mackenzie knows she and her husband have had their share of heartache in the baby department, but both feel certain it's only a matter of patient persistence before they get what they want. And Rein, bless his heart, can be very persistent.

But just before Christmas, when fate offers them the chance to test drive parenthood with taking in a young boy to care for whose life is more complicated than it should be, they realize that having a child and raising a child are two very different challenges that every good parent faces.
