In Lavinia Kent's luscious historical romance, a free spirit learns her true desires from a master of the heart, of the body--and of the sweetest discipline. Lady Bliss Danser, daughter of the Duke of Mirth, is a scandal waiting to erupt. Which is why her highly conventional brother wants to saddle her with Stephan Perth, Earl of Duldon, the only man he thinks will marry her. Worse, Stephan keeps threatening to punish her, to teach her just how a woman should behave. His words may cause Bliss to tingle in the strangest places, but that doesn't mean she likes the man himself. Stephan has secretly desired Bliss for years, but he knows how close he is to losing his beloved. Careful not to rile her impetuous heart, he promises only to aid Bliss in her search for another fiancé. And if she's determined to understand the male body first, he's happy to comply in that regard as well. However, she must follow his rules or face the consequences. Slowly he takes Bliss to the darker, steamier side of his world . . . where she realizes that Stephan is everything she's ever wanted. Bound by Bliss is intended for mature audiences.

In Lavinia Kent's scorching new eBook original novella, two wounded hearts find that only the sweet release of temptations long denied can heal the pain of past sins. Five years ago, Miss Sarah Swilp had been deeply in love with Jonathan Perry, the second son of an earl. But when Jonathan inherited his aunt's lands and money, he turned cold, demanding Sarah's maidenhood and uttering those unforgettably cruel words: "You do know I won't marry you." She refused, of course, and that spoiled everything. Now, just as she's agreed to a marriage of convenience, Jonathan reappears--and after Sarah gets one look at his lean, hard body, the embers of desire burst back into flame. Over time, Jonathan has learned quite a bit about the art of pleasure--though nothing has ever given him so much joy as the husky timbre of Sarah's laugh. It had hurt to leave her, but what other choice did he have? Perhaps he'd been too afraid of ending up like his brother, targeted by a woman seeking a title. Seeing her again, Jonathan can't help wondering what might have been if only Sarah had surrendered to red-hot lust. Fortunately, judging by the wicked look in her eyes, it may not be too late to find out. Sarah's Surrender is intended for mature audiences.

Strong and independent, she dreams of him in secret. Fierce, yet world-weary, he's always desired her. Neither considers marriage an option. But when a single kiss has unforeseen consequences, and wedding bells follow, they'll both learn the power of passion. Desire can change everything.
She was blessed with a gift of temptation. Violet, Lady Carrington, possesses everything a spirited woman could want out of life. Money (and lots of it). The freedom to make her own choices, with no husband to rule her. And a delightfully attentive young lover, Lord Peter St. Johns, to satisfy her every wild whim. But Peter desires more than Violet's lascivious attentions. He's desperate for her heart--and her hand in marriage. Yet with a toss of her russet curls, Violet refuses. A man like Peter belongs with a naïve, blushing beauty, not a luscious lady with a talent for sin, and she would rather die than be beholden to anyone. But try as she might, she cannot convince him--or herself--that their tantalizing dalliance is a mere trifle. Perhaps Lady Carrington has finally met her match--a man who will love but not control her, a man who can meet her wickedness with a fierce passion of his own . . .

Only one possibility remains- one too scandalous to consider . . . yet too tempting to resist.
