In the eyes of the ton, Ellen Harding lives a charmed life – she is the beautiful, exquisitely adorned mistress of Lord Gainsborough. But on the inside, behind her glamorous façade, she is empty – a vessel – deaf to the voice of morality and blind to shame. Unable to escape the gilded cage she has been trapped within.
Kind, gentle Edward Marlow could prove to be her salvation… With one look he gives her hope. With one touch he sets her senses alight.

“I am well and truly in lust with Robert Marlow! This is a beautiful love story.” Jonty Babe Amazon.co.uk
“Dark, emotional, and romantic, The Passionate Love of a Rake was a brilliant historical romance!” Farrah Amazon.com
The only woman who had the power to disturb Robert Marlow’s equilibrium had just appeared from nowhere and was now walking away from him, again. He’d heard Sutton had died, and known Jane was free, but he’d always thought his desire would only be for revenge, not her. Yet here he was, like a dog, chasing after her bloody bones.
Robert felt Jane’s fingers trembling. She was nervous and agitated. She’s vulnerable. He was frustrated. He was not playing games. She was the one who kept flying from hot to cold. There was something wrong she would not tell him, and nor would she admit she liked him. She did. She was a liar.
No one could refuse such a handsome, skilled man as Lord Barrington — except Jane. How could she trust him when he had once let her down so badly?
Love must be won with an open heart, not bought.
Isolated by life and choice, John Harding, the Duke of Pembroke, sees an angel in a pale mauve dress across a room and is drawn closer as lust grips firm and hard in his stomach.
The wheat-blonde hair escaping her dull dove-grey bonnet and caressing her neck lures his eyes to a spot he’d like to kiss. She speaks with animation her hands moving. Then as if she senses his gaze the stranger turns and looks at him.
A rush of pain and longing spilled from Katherine’s heart into her limbs. It was so long since she’d seen John but her reaction was the same as it had been more than half a dozen years before. She loved him, secretly, without hope, but a chasm of years and status stood between them.
