Christmas Delights

by Heather Hiestand

The sweetest gift is the hardest to unwrap. . . Lady Victoria Allen-Hill never dreamed she'd be a widow at twenty-one--let alone a virgin. Her father insists that she attend a matchmaking house party in the snow-covered seaside town of Pevensey in hopes she'll find a suitable husband. But for Victoria, it's an opportunity to indulge in a passionate affair--and the handsome inventor she meets at the Christmas Eve masquerade ball may be just the man for the job. . . Lewis Noble is the cousin of London's famed Redcake sisters, so it almost stands to reason that he's just as irresistible as one of their sugar-iced pastries. Lewis catches the eye of every woman at the party--but Victoria is the only one who catches his. He won't be tied down in her father's business, but watching other men court her amid a flurry of engagements ignites a jealousy he's never felt before. A dose of honesty may be just the thing to mend their broken hearts--for many holidays to come. . . "Before I realized it, the unusually strong and well-developed characters of The Kidnapped Bride had sneaked up on me and captured my full attention. This is one of the best shorter books I have ever read. --Delle Jacobs, author of Lady Wicked"A delightful, sexy glimpse into Victorian life and loving with two wonderfully non-traditional lovers.

His Wicked Smile

by Heather Hiestand

Some temptations are impossible to resist, even for a bakery heir. . . Ann Haldene is the most beautiful woman Gawain Redcake has ever seen. A gifted healer who soothes his battle-scarred body like never before, the widow's touch has a powerful effect on him. It's no wonder the rugged Redcake heir forgets his quest for a society bride during one passionate night in Ann's arms. But once he learns she is pregnant with his child, he searches for her, intent on giving her his name, if not his heart. . . . Ann is shocked by Gawain's proposal, mostly because he has not uttered a word of love. For the sake of their baby, she accepts, even knowing that Gawain dreamed of marrying to secure a title and all she has is a severed royal Indian bloodline. Now the new bride faces her greatest challenge: showing her husband that their union is more powerful than pedigree--and love is the ultimate reward. . . .

The Kidnapped Bride

by Heather Hiestand

Pursuing this elusive heiress will be the ultimate temptation. . . Lady Elizabeth Shield is used to saving herself from trouble.

But outwitting Dougal's tactics to return her to London and her family will be easier than staying away from his intoxicating kisses. . . He's a baron's second son accustomed to making his own way and uncovering the truth. Now Dougal must keep Lady Elizabeth close for her own protection, but her spirited wiles are proving scandalously irresistible. His most difficult case yet will be showing her that he's everything she truly desires--and that love is the greatest of adventures. . .

by Heather Hiestand

A cup of sugar. . . a dash of cream. . . . and a craving for a cake decorator that won't be denied. . .
