Between her sweet “little sister” and Ethan Miller, the boy she left behind, Josie finds herself face-to-face with a pain she’s not sure she can endure.

It might hold the possibility of a second chance at love...

Gabriella (Hiatt Regency Classics Book 1)

He lost a wager . . . but won a treasure. Due to a lost wager, the Duke of Ravenham is obliged to bring a pretty little nobody from the country into fashion among the high-sticklers of London Society. Ravenham would never refuse a debt of honor, no matter how unorthodox, so he overlooks Miss Gordon's vulgar relations to do what is necessary, escorting the unsophisticated chit to balls, etc. But what he expects to be an irksome duty turns out to be something quite different as he falls under the spell of his protege's innocent charm. When he lost that wager, he definitely never counted on losing his heart as well! First impressions can be deceiving. Miss Gabriella Gordon only came to London at her mother's and sister's insistence, for she'd much rather assist in running her father's veterinary practice than attempt to fit into fashionable society. No sooner has she arrived in London than the exalted (and exceedingly handsome) Duke of Ravenham comes to call. The reason is less than flattering, however: due to a lost wager, the Duke is forced to bring Gabriella into fashion, a "favor" she would certainly refuse if her family would let her. But the more time she spends in the dashing Duke's company, the more conflicted she feels— particularly when she discovers they have more in common than she ever dared dream.Book 1 of Brenda Hiatt’s bestselling Hiatt Regency Classics collection.

The last thing he needs is Poppy Ericksen, an old flame and his late wife’s best friend, showing up unannounced to help after devastating floods nearly washed away their hometown. With no place to stay in town, he has no choice but to offer her a bed at his house. But can he live under the same roof with a woman he’d once loved passionately without feeling he’s betraying his late wife?Excerpt:One look on Logan McKinnon’s face told Poppy that his foul mood had very little to do with the devastating destruction all around the Badlands of South Dakota…and everything to do with her showing up in town after nearly ten years. She didn’t have to be standing next to him to feel his anger simmering just below the surface of his composure. Sitting in her rental sedan was close enough. What the hell was she thinking coming back home? Why had she made that ridiculous promise to Kelly?She parked the car next to his truck and took a deep breath, mumbling under her breath as she pulled the door handle, “This may just turn out to be the stupidest thing you have ever done, girl.”Truth was, even as pissed off as Logan looked, he was still an amazing sight to see. Part of her had hoped that she was wrong. That she’d gotten over him a long time ago. That she’d take one look at him, make sure he and Keith were okay, and be able to get back in her car and drive right to the airport in Rapids City.He turned to her, standing tall and proud. His thick dark hair blew in the March wind, fluttering around his face and making him all the more strikingly handsome. Yep. Stupid.He was taller than she’d remembered, and he’d long since lost that too-lean teenage body that had driven her crazy in her youth. He worked hard on his ranch and it showed in how much his arms and chest had filled with muscles.Despite the cold, he’d taken off his jacket while he worked in the yard and Poppy had a clear view of just how much his male body had filled out in places she’d dreamed of touching.Lord, help her. She was in trouble. And she hadn’t even stepped out of the car yet. She pushed the door open and stepped outside to get it over with. It was either going to be the shortest visit on record…or a life changing experience she’d been dreaming of ever since she was a teenager. “Hi, Logan.”Logan starred at her for a long, agonizing moment. She read the emotional tug of war playing on his face as the sudden chill from the South Dakota winds bit into her exposed skin like a whipping.Then his expression turned hard. “What the hell are you doing here?”

“I even ate this morning. My mother would be so proud of me. She’d be mad at you, though.”“For bringing you into a police investigation? I’m pissed at myself about that too.”“No. For wearing the same shirt two days in a row. What are you, a savage?”Derek glanced down at the white button-up. “I have fifteen of these things. What makes you think it’s the same as yesterday?”Sam twisted to a stop in front of him, and before he could stop her, she rested three of her fingers at the bottom of his ribcage. “Coffee stain.” She looked up and her eyes met his. “You should be more careful about that.”Derek wrapped his fingers around hers as he removed her hand from his side, holding it tight as he said, “I’ve been a bit preoccupied. Must’ve grabbed a dirty shirt on accident.”“This is why you need me. Someone to watch your back. Don’t detectives normally have partners or something?”“The partners I’ve had in the past weren’t in charge of making sure I was dressed to code.”“Then you need a girlfriend.”Derek dropped her hand and moved past her to open the door to the building. “If that’s your way of hitting on me, I’m not interested.”“Excuse me?” Sam walked through the door and followed his lead as he went to the elevator.“Touching counts as flirting. We’re not doing that. Got it?”“Good grief, I wasn’t flirting. I’m just more hands-on than you.”Derek glanced over at her even as he clenched and unclenched the hand that had just touched hers. She had been throwing him off his game from the second she’d first caught him outside their building, and he wasn’t any closer to getting his equilibrium back.~~~~~Magic always comes back...

Because Maxine Woodward does not let girls spend the night.MAXINE WOODWARDFresh from the most toxic divorce that side of the Sierra Nevadas, Maxine is the last person looking for love. Lust? Yes. Most definitely. Sex is the only thing that keeps Maxine distracted from ex-wife Penelope long enough to function.Lydia was supposed to be just another one-night stand. Until the society pages misprint that they’re dating. Then all hell breaks loose – both in Maxine’s legal life, and in her heart.Will these two finally admit that there’s something more there? Or will Maxine’s obstinate personality and Lydia’s nerves get in the way of something special?First step? Staying the dang night. **EXCERPT**Maxine Woodward wanted something casual with her. Her. A woman who normally didn’t have opportunities like this. Lydia didn’t have anything against casual, right? She understood what that meant and entailed. They weren’t girlfriends. This wasn’t a date for a trial relationship. Maxine wanted to screw someone, and Lydia – of all people – was the one she wanted to screw.I could say I slept with her. Maybe not to people in general, but to myself… Every time Maxine came by the resource center, Lydia could have that wash of fun memories, knowing that she had seen this gorgeous woman naked, felt her heat, tasted her skin…“Like I said, I don’t like to waste time.

Otherwise, I’m going to have one of my staff suggest to your friend that she leave without you.”“What’s my name?”Maxine abruptly turned her head toward her guest. “Excuse me?”“If you can tell me my first name, I’ll stay.”Lydia was all about casual if the hot moment presented itself, but not at the expense of her humanity. She wouldn’t let Maxine use her. They didn’t have to be friends. They didn’t really need anything in common, as long as they didn’t hate each other. A physical connection, chemistry… that was all that was needed, right?Lydia definitely felt that way about Maxine. She simply never guessed it could go the other way.Maxine squared her shoulders, her honor on the line. “Lydia. I dare you to tell me I got that wrong. I don’t care if your name is actually something else. That’s the name that showed up in my background check, and I’ve bothered to remember it, thank you very much.”Damn, she was hot when she was bothered.“All right.” Lydia inhaled a deep breath for confidence. “I said I would stay. So I’ll stay. Now what?”One side of Maxine’s mouth turned upward into a smirk. “My bedroom’s that way, Ms. Kellerman, and you’re still wearing clothes.”Indeed she was. Someone had a feeling that was about to change, however.

Dorian Gray becomes the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Dorian is selected for his remarkable physical beauty, and Basil becomes strongly infatuated with Dorian, believing that his beauty is responsible for a new mode of art.
