Carnival of Love by Helen Dickson
Rescuing Lavinia Renshaw from a Venetian canal was one thing. Accepting her surprising proposition of marriage was quite another. Maxim Purnell thrived on taking risks. However, his situation was complicated enough without taking on a wife.
But there was no denying Lavinia had succeeded in piquing his curiosity - and desire. To come in to her considerable legacy she needed a husband, and she intended their arrangement to be a marriage of convenience only. So what would happen if Maxim decided to make her his wife for real?
The Viscount's Bride by Ann Elizabeth Cree
Lady Chloe had nowhere to turn...either she followed her guardian's dictates and married a wholly detestable suitor or she settled for the comfortable love of a sensible man. Faced with a bleak future on either front, Chloe settled for Mr. Safe and Sensible.
It wasn't until her so-called "safe" choice tried to compromise her reputation that Brandt, Lord Salcombe, rushed in to save her. But how dare Brandt now insist that the next time she wanted a kiss she come to him! Chloe had no illusions about the viscount being ideal husband material. Still, his offer was tempting...and certainly promised a future filled with passion!
