The last thing the Duke of Greystone wants is a wife, until the Lady Jane Blackmore seeks out his quiet corner of Earl Braxton´s ballroom. But there she stands, attempting to shut out the rest of the world by simply closing her eyes, but the duke understands better than most that life is never that simple. The last thing Jane wants is a husband, until she opens her eyes to find the scarred and much too handsome stranger secluded in her chosen quiet corner. Why can´t the obstinate man understand she just needs a brief moment of solitude before returning to face her tormentors? But no matter how many times she tells him to go away, he remains. So is it her fault that her father misunderstands the young duke´s intentions? Whilst marriage isn´t on Phillip - as she learns the duke is called - or Jane´s mind, when society´s trials and tribulations come, they soon become each other´s touchstone, and by it discover that joy is tantalizingly within their grasp, although others seem intent on thwarting their every wish. 1.

Young. Ravishing. Exquisitely marriageable. From the moment he spies Lady Morgan Bedwyn across the glittering ballroom, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn, knows he has found the perfect instrument of his revenge.

Nor is it of interest to the fiercely independent Lady Morgan herself...until one night of shocking intimacy erupts in a scandal that could make Gervase´s vengeance all the sweeter. There is only one thing standing in his way: Morgan, who has achieved the impossible - she´s melted his coolly guarded heart. For Gervase, only the marriage bed will do, but Morgan simply will not have him. Thus begins a sizzling courtship where two wary hearts are about to be undone by the most scandalous passion of all: glorious, all-consuming love. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English.

A hugely enjoyable and life-affirming memoir from the ever-popular ex-cricketer and now successful broadcaster. When Phil Tufnell hung up his cricket boots back in 2003, little did he know the dramatic direction his professional life would take next. Yet since being crowned ´´King of the Jungle´´ in I´m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, the ex-England spin bowler has never looked back and is now a much loved television and radio presenter. Cricket´s dressing-room clown is now broadcasting´s joker in the pack. Whether it´s dining on kangaroo testicles on I´m a Celebrity, displaying his fleckle in the ballroom on Strictly Come Dancing, keeping a straight face while presenting a short item on the history of whistles for The One Show, causing weekly mayhem for long-suffering host Sue Barker on A Question of Sport, or simply chewing the fat about his beloved cricket on Radio 4´s Test Match Special, millions and millions enjoy Tuffers´ lust for life and endearing sense of humour, much of it self-deprecating. In Where Am I? Phil gamely tries to make sense of the wonderful roller coaster he has been riding these last dozen years, delighting fans with a treasure trove of wonderful stories about the places he has been, the people he has met, the things he has been asked to do, but - most of all - the sheer enormous joy he has had doing it all. 1.

Start of a delightful new series from historical romance author Jen Turano. Miss Permilia Griswold may have been given the opportunity of a debut into New York high society, but no one warned her she wasn´t guaranteed to ´´take´´. After spending the last six years banished to the wallflower section of the ballroom, she´s finally putting her status on the fringes of society to good use by penning anonymous society gossip columns under the pseudonym ´´Miss Quill´´. Mr. Asher Rutherford has managed to maintain his status as a reputable gentleman of society despite opening his own department store. While pretending it´s simply a lark to fill his time, he has quite legitimate reasons for needing to make his store the most successful in the country. When Permilia overhears a threat against the estimable Mr. Rutherford, she´s determined to find and warn the man. Disgruntled at a first meeting that goes quite poorly and results in Asher not believing her, she decides to take matters into her own hands, never realizing she´ll end up at risk as well. As Asher and Permilia are forced to work together and spend time away from the spotlight of society, perhaps there´s more going on behind the scenes than they ever could have anticipated.... 1.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in her beloved Regency-set series featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family—soon to be a Netflix series. In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable...but not too amiable. Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen. Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend´s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar. The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London´s elite, there is only one certainty: Love ignores every rule...
