Four step-daughters of the wealthy Earl of Beckington realize that when he succumbs to his consumption—which seems to be fast approaching—the heir, their stepbrother, Augustine Devereaux, Viscount Somerton, will likely heed the advice of his fiancé instead of the wishes of his father. Instead of waiting to see what fate will befall them—they fully expect to be turned out of their grand home and put into reduced circumstance—they are determined to move first. In THE TROUBLE WITH HONOR Honor, the oldest, is determined to remove her stepbrother’s fiancé, Miss Monica Hargrove, from his life. She and Monica have been the bane of each other’s social life for years, and Monica has privately made clear to Honor what she would like to do when the earl dies—move Honor and her sisters as far from her and the family fortune as possible. Honor knows just the person to help her—the dissolute George Easton, the illegitimate son of the Duke of Gloucester. Honor convinces him to attract Monica away from her stepbrother. But the devil needs coaching to lure Monica, and only Honor can provide it. As George steadily makes progress with his lessons and luring Monica into the snare, Honor finds herself envious. The dashing and scandalous man soon holds everything within his hands, Honor's family, future, inheritance and more importantly, her heart. In THE THE DEVIL TAKES A BRIDE we once again meet Grace Cabot, the second eldest of the Cabot sisters. Once the toast of the town, she now awaits the shame of losing her social standing and fine luxuries upon the death of the Earl of Beckington. The dire circumstances are inevitable unless, of course, Grace's wicked plot to seduce a wealthy viscount into marriage goes off without a single hitch. But once a stolen embrace with the wrong man leads her to be discovered in the arms of Jeffrey, the Earl of Merryton, her plan takes a most unexpected—and scorching—twist. In THE SCOUNDREL AND THE DEBUTANTE the dust of the older two Cabot sisters' shocking plans to rescue their family from certain ruin may have settled, but Prudence Cabot is left standing in the rubble of scandal. Now regarded as an unsuitable bride, she's tainted among the ton. Yet this unwilling wallflower is ripe for her own adventure. And when an irresistibly sexy American stranger on a desperate mission enlists her help, she simply can't deny the temptation. The fate of Roan Matheson's family depends on how quickly he can find his runaway sister and persuade her to return to her betrothed. Scouring the rustic English countryside with the sensually wicked Prudence at his side—and in his bed—he's out of his element. But once Roan has a taste of the sizzling passion that can lead to forever, he must choose between his heart's obligations and its forbidden desires.
