Historical Romance


Late Georgian romance published by Oliver Heber Books


…tell anyone about her past, or theirs.

Gwen can’t bear to turn away those who come to St. Sefin’s seeking aid; the crumbling priory gave her shelter when she had nothing else.

But the badly beaten man who just washed up in Newport is the viscount who owns the place–the same viscount who threatened to evict her and those she cares about unless she meets an impossible demand.

At the moment, he can’t remember anything…including his own name.

What’s one more lie?


…meddle in the affairs of a duke.

The illegitimate son of a duke, Malden Grey has learned to live by his wits, and Amaranthe fears his sharp eye will detect that she doesn’t always earn her living by honest means. But when Mal’s young half-siblings turn to Amaranthe for domestic advice, she becomes deeply implicated in life at Hunsdon House, and against her better judgment, Malden Grey steals her heart—even while she’s plotting to steal the Hunsdon MS, an irreplaceable book that can make her fortune.

Amaranthe’s explorations yield a document that changes Mal’s fate, and as they fight together in a court of law to clear her name and establish his identity, they see a path opening to a future together—if they are brave enough to choose it.


…make a suitable bride for an earl.

Ragtag near-orphan Harriette Smythe made a lifetime friend of the young Earl of Renwick the summer she rescued him from bullies in the small village of Shepton Mallet. Eleven years later, grown-up Ren has returned to London with all the polish of his Grand Tour, and Harriette, struggling to establish herself as an artist and help support her eccentric household, wants to call in a favor.

His mother knows what Harriette’s been up to–all of London has seen the racy sketches she made of a visiting diplomat–and while she might bar her from the house, she can’t prevent wily Harriette from climbing through the window. But Renwick as a man is a far cry from the wounded young boy she knew…and the passions he rouses in her are far, far different. But with his disability and her past, there is no way these two can give into the bond that pulls them together…not when his past, and hers, are trying to tear them apart.


…be perturbed by a little madness.

Leda Wroth is atoning for the crimes of her past in her new life as a lady’s companion, mentor, and fixer for those seeking love. But finding a wife for the Mad Baron is a task that will defeat even clever, capable Leda, for what woman would want a man—titled or not—rumored to have killed his first wife?

Jack Burnham, Baron Brancaster of Holme Hall, isn’t mad—he doesn’t think. But he does need a governess for his daughter, and Leda Wroth seems the woman to help him, even if he suspects she’s running away from something. Even if she raises longings for a life he knows he can’t have.

But how can Jack convince Leda she’s safe with him when Holme Hall holds secrets of its own? For more than one betrayal haunts the windy cliffs of Norfolk where the mad baron’s wife died. And while Jack might try desperately to shield Leda from the mistakes of his own past, he can’t protect her from the ghosts in hers, which are hellbent on taking away everything she’s come to love.
