An Irish rogue and an English heiress should have nothing in common. But two years after the disastrous fire that brought Lady Blanche Perceval into Michael O'Toole's life, he is saddled with another orphan in need of a woman's understanding. Except the once generous Lady Blanche now despises Michael for keeping his distance when she needed him the most. Following the fire, Blanche inherited the wealth of a dukedom, but her cousin holds the power. Forced to rely on her men of business, she is at constant odds with the new duke, who insists upon marriage for sake of the estate. When the irresistible and unreliable Michael O'Toole re-materializes in her life to enlist her care for another orphan he's rescued—as he once did for her—Blanche doesn't know whether to kill him or kiss him. But when her carriage is attacked, running off with a rogue seems the wisest choice of all. REVIEWS: "Michael and his delicious duke's granddaughter demonstrate why bad boys are best!" ~Mary Jo Putney, NYT Bestselling author of Sometimes a Rogue THE REGENCY NOBLES SERIES, in order The Genuine Article The Marquess The English Heiress The Irish Duchess
Duke meets shrew. Taming doesn’t happen. Neville Perceval, the bankrupt Duke of Anglesey, finally accepts that he needs to marry a wealthy, gracious lady who will ease his financial burdens and smooth his political path. Before he can seek this paragon, he’s thrown into the path of the rebellious, untamed cousin of an Irish earl. Fiona MacDermot needs cash to help the starving villagers and orphans left by the long-lost earl. Not trusting another lying aristocrat, she’d rather start her own mill than ask for help. But when the duke is nearly beaten to death on her doorstep, and Fiona’s looms are lost to a murdering thief, their lives are entangled in ways that threaten their futures. Lust shouldn’t factor into their destinies, but it does, and now they have to find their dreams together, or die trying.
Feeling like a cliché, Lady Marian Lawrence sets out to snare a rich husband to save her family from ruin. Except with her biting wit and lack of beauty, the task is practically Sisyphean. Hiding her true self, she sets her cap for wealthy, amiable Lord Darley—until Darley’s best friend blocks their path to the altar. A man who has vowed never to marry, Reginald Montague is as determined to prevent a fortune hunter from snaring Darley as Marian is to have a wealthy husband. Far from rich but possessed of an aristocratic lineage, Montague is prepared to do anything to stop Marian, including seduce her. With dazzling skill and subtle stratagem, he sets out to change Marian’s dislike for him into desire—as Marian struggles to keep the lie she’s living from being revealed by a truly disastrous love… “A deliciously light-hearted traditional Regency." —Mary Jo Putney, author of No Longer A Gentleman
A soldier who despises women and a woman who despises soldiers must depend on each other to survive. Scarred in a duel over a feckless female, Gavin Lawrence leaves America to take up his new duty as Marquess of Effingham, vowing never to care about others again. But he does care about protecting his crumbling new home—the secret passages apparently conceal an intruder he’s determined to root out. Dillian Whitnell guards her injured cousin in isolated Arinmede manor after an attempt on both their lives. Having followed her father’s troops for years, Dillian is adept at camouflage. She just hadn’t expected the stubborn new marquess to refuse to believe in ghosts. Her game of hide-and-seek game taunts his irritation into intrigue, and intrigue into a forbidden passion, until Gavin realizes the exceedingly annoying but courageous young woman he chases is in terrible danger. Once more, the marquess is faced with the prospect of a fight for his life over a woman—unless Dillian leaves him and all she loves behind.

John Fitzhugh Wyckerly has been the spare heir all his life, supporting himself with gambling and charm. The news that he’s inherited the bankrupt title of Earl of Danecroft shatters his indolent world. Even penniless, he’s always paid his debts, but now the estate’s creditors are closing in. He can fake his death and run for cover...or accept overwhelming responsibility and find a rich wife—one who will also accept his illegitimate terror of a daughter. On his way to find an heiress, he meets Abigail Merriweather, who is neither rich nor aristocratic, but she can tame The Terror and stomp cockroaches. Unfortunately, she needs a wealthy, powerful man who will fight her father’s executor and retrieve her four half-siblings. When an unexpected inheritance falls into Abby’s lap, she sets out for London to seek a lawyer. Can Fitz charm his practical Abby into trusting him to save her siblings when it’s doubtful that he can even save himself? And can Abby surrender reason and logic for the folly of love offered by a man who can have any woman he wants but insists he wants only her? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Patricia Rice’s historicals are deliciously fresh, sexy, and fun.”—Mary Jo Putney, author of Not Quite A Wife “Rice is a master storyteller …A wonderful blend of humor, pathos, adventure, and charm, this page-turner is book one in Rice’s promising Rebellious Sons series.” Shelley Mosley, Booklist —a top ten romance for 2010 “I loved it. It's a heartwarming tale that kept me smiling all the way through.

It's a sweet, sexy, fun romp with so much heart. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.” Anne Gracie, author of The Winter Bride
