An Unexpected Bride . . .
Miss Gillian Harwell was sure that getting caught in a compromising position would thwart her family's scheme to marry her off for money. However, her plan worked all too well — with her reputation ruined, her only recourse was to wed Viscount Carlton Avery, a lonely widower with three unruly children. And it wasn't long before Gillian found her attempts to help her new family sparking a most surprising romance . . .
A Devoted Groom . . .
Carlton had agreed to this hasty arrangement strictly for his family's sake. He never expected that his new wife would be so spirited and outspoken. Nor did he imagine that her caring ways would not only work wonders on his children, but would also break through his carefully cultivated reserve, provoking a passion he thought long dead. Now, amid past hurts and misunderstandings, he must prove his love to Gillian — for if she leaves his home, she takes his heart with her!
