LADY BARBARA'S DILEMMA 3/1993 ISBN: 0451171942 Lady Barbour Stanley had the perfect husband-to-be in Lord Peter Rushcliffe, Marquess of Wardour.

LORD ASHFORD'S WAGER 5/1994 ISBN: 0451180496 Lady Joanna Barrand knew all the terrible things about Lord Tony Ashford. It was bad enough that the dazzlingly handsome, dismally impoverished earl looked on Joanna as a childhood chum, not the lovely young woman she had become. It was even worse that he was a confirmed gambler, and was seeking the hand and fortune of a beautiful older widow to rescue him from ruin. And worst of all, there now was shocking evidence that the outrageous Ashford was guilty of a crime that made all his other sins seem innocent. To come to Ashford's aid was folly. To folly into his arms was madness multiplied. But Joanna did have one reason for taking the plunge with all the odds against her. What did she have to risk the odds against her. What did she have to risk when she already had lost her heart?

Too proud to expose his grievous war wound to society's scorn. And too proud to open his heart to any woman's painful pity. With pride so powerful, could passion & love ever prove stronger . . . ?
