A Marriage of Inconvenience? Dina’s only chance to keep her inheritance from going to pay her brother’s gaming debts is to marry before her twenty-fifth birthday. When her carefully planned elopement goes awry, in desperation, she travels to Gretna Green alone. There she finds herself rescuing a naïve young lady from a fortune hunter, which earns the gratitude of the young lady’s handsome—and eligible—brother, who has come in hot pursuit. When he asks her to name her reward, she has her answer ready. Grant Turpin, better known to his friends as Thor, is grateful to the girl who saved his sister’s honor, but is stunned when she demands marriage in repayment of his debt to her. She insists she will not infringe on his freedom in the least, but the more time he spends with her, the less attractive that freedom appears. Instead, he becomes increasingly determined to win her heart along with her hand. Surely spending Christmas with her at his parents’ estate will help him to do just that?

The Heiress Gets a Duke by Harper St. George Summary

Even a fortune forged in railroads and steel can't buy entrance into the upper echelons of Victorian high society--for that you need a marriage of convenience. American heiress August Crenshaw has aspirations. But unlike her peers, it isn't some stuffy British Lord she wants wrapped around her finger--it's Crenshaw Iron Works, the family business. When it's clear that August's outrageously progressive ways render her unsuitable for a respectable match, her parents offer up her younger sister to the highest entitled bidder instead. This simply will not do. August refuses to leave her sister to the mercy of a loveless marriage. Evan Sterling, the Duke of Rothschild, has no intention of walking away from the marriage. He's recently inherited the title only to find his coffers empty, and with countless lives depending on him, he can't walk away from the fortune a Crenshaw heiress would bring him. But after meeting her fiery sister, he realizes Violet isn't the heiress he wants. He wants August, and he always gets what he wants. But August won't go peacefully to her fate. She decides to show Rothschild that she's no typical London wallflower. Little does she realize that every stunt she pulls to make him call off the wedding only makes him like her even more.

She never disappoints! Her books are comfort reads that I re-read time and time again. Hands down she is one of my favorite authors.'' —​​​​​​​Maya Banks, New York Times bestselling author Navy Seal Matt Sanders is slowly putting himself together after being almost mortally wounded in battle. He's sick of hospitals, so a nowhere town in Baja, California, seems like the perfect place to lick his wounds. It's the last place he expects to find the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. She's hurt, too--but haunted as she is, she watches over him like a guardian angel. But the feelings she inspires in him are anything but angelic. Then Matt finds out that she's on the run, and keeping secrets that could get her killed--and he's having none of it. No one is threatening his angel. Not on his watch. Heiress Charlotte Court is on the lam, wrongly accused of murder, and running from her father's killer. She's in no condition to let herself be tempted by a man--not even one as tough, gorgeous, and compelling as Matt Sanders. He fascinates her, allures her, and she can't resist his pull--but she can't open her heart to him. Then he'd be in the crosshairs, too. It's a stalemate--until a deadly killer comes to town...
