Isabel Besson’s father owns a French Equestrian Circus in which she grew up, touring throughout France and performing with her brilliant horse, Alonzo. In the audience at a performance in London is Leo Sommers, Earl of Camden, who is stunned when he sees in Isabel the replica of his famous great-grandmother, whose portrait hangs in his drawing room.
This is no coincidence, as it soon comes to light that Isabel had been kidnapped as an infant and adopted by “Papa” and his wife when an English woman attempted to sell them the baby.
Isabel isn’t interested in meeting her natural family, but when she learns that her birth father, the Earl of Mansfield, has left her a great deal of money, Isabel sees a means for her Papa to retire from circus life, and she heads for a summer at Camden Hall to prove her right to the inheritance.
Camden Hall is one of England’s Great Houses, and everything about it feels alien to Isabel. She misses her Papa, the circus, France…everything from the life she knows. She does not like her new relatives: Lady Augusta, Leo’s elderly aunt who is always correcting her; Leo’s cousin Roger, who calls her “circus girl” and undresses her with his eyes; her own brother Henry, Earl of Mansfield, who doesn’t want to surrender their father’s money to her.
There is one person at Camden Hall who Isabel comes to love…the Earl of Camden—and Leo feels the same about her.
Which will win out…love, or money?

Frances Stewart was the most stunning beauty of the London Season, with every noble gallant at her beck and call, and the most eligible lord in the realm, Sir Robert Sedburgh, begging for her hand.
Lord Ian Macdonald was the most headstrong and arrogant young blade ever to sneer at society’s strictures and to scorn caution’s advice in his reckless pursuit of his own desires.
As fate would have it (no one else would dare recommend such an unsettling alliance), these two paragons of pride came together. And as all of Regency society held its breath, first a few discomfiting sparks flew, and then the explosion came...
Nicholas Beauchamp, the Earl of Winslow, was baffled by Margarita’s infernally inconvenient anger.
True, he still visited his mistress, Catherine Alnwick, whenever his fancy dictated. True, he still availed himself of the fabled favors of the ravishing Lady Eleanor Rushton, who certainly never let her marriage vows interfere with her pleasures.
But surely Margarita should be able to see that as his wife she still possessed the best part of him, and be satisfied with the bargain.
Unfortunately, Margarita had so very much to learn about the ways of the world—and even more to teach the imperious earl about the secrets of the heart…
