About the Book

A collection of the Dartmouth Brides, a quartet of unconventional, incomparable heroines determined to find their own trues loves.

THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE: She says she’ll never marry… Miss Elizabeth Paxton is a new sort of heiress—educated, opinionated and entirely independent. The last thing she wants is a husband mucking up her life. Even if he is the only man she’s ever loved. But she has always wanted to be a widow. When dashing Captain Jameson Marlowe returns to Dartmouth, he proposes to give Lizzie exactly what she wants—a marriage without the man. After one night of searing passion, his sworn duty will take him far off to sea…or so she thinks until secrets and lies set a collision course with the smugglers along the south coast, and Lizzie is caught up in the dark tide of treason. Can she salvage her marriage and learn to trust in her one true love before it’s too late?

A SENSE OF SIN: A Lady with a Secret The Ravishing Miss Burke has everything a young lady could want—beauty, status and suitors lined up just to beg for her hand. Until a blackmailer from her past holds her future for ransom. A Man hellbent on Revenge Colonel Rupert Delacorte, Viscount Darling, will go to any length to ruin the woman responsible for his beloved sister’s death. But the Ravishing Miss Burke is nothing like the icy murderer of his waking dreams—she’s nothing but a bluestocking with a shocking secret she’ll go to almost any length to keep. Even succumbing to his sinful seduction.

THE DANGER OF DESIRE: The Officer is a Gentleman Royal Navy Captain Hugh McAlden will do anything to stop the treasonous flow of information out of the Admiralty, even if it means taking in a slyly attractive street thief to steal those secrets back. The Lady is a Tramp Circumstances might have forced Meggs Evans into a life of crime, but she’s bound and determined to lift herself out of the gutters even if it means stealing for the wickedly handsome captain. On the trail of a traitor, the undeniable attraction between Meggs and her captain explodes. But when danger ignites their desire, the only thing in danger of being stolen is her heart.

UP ON THE ROOFTOPS: Mischievous widow Catriona Bowmont longs for London’s Christmas cheer, but a string of jewel thefts has brought the festive season to a standstill. Society accuses the Scottish Wraith, Tobias McTavish. Toby is determined to clear his name and reclaim the quiet life he’s built, and with Cally’s help, he heads to the rooftops to trap the thief.

Elizabeth Essex

Elizabeth Essex is a USAToday Bestselling and award-winning author of critically acclaimed historical romance, including the Reckless Brides and Highland Brides series.

Her fifth book, A BREATH OF SCANDAL was awarded Best Historical in the Reader’s Crown 2013.

When not re-reading Jane Austen, mucking about in her garden, or messing about with boats, Elizabeth can be found at her laptop, making up stories about heroes and heroines who live far more exciting lives than she. It wasn’t always so—long before she ever set pen to paper, Elizabeth graduated from Hollins College with a B.A. in Classics and Art History, and then earned her M.A. in Nautical Archaeology from Texas A & M University. While she loved the life of an underwater archaeologist, she has found her true calling writing lush, lyrical historical romance full of passion, daring and adventure.

Elizabeth lives in Texas with her husband, the Indispensable Mr. Essex, her active and exuberant family, and her darling dogs, Ghillie and Brogue, in an old house filled to the brim with books.
