The Duke's Cinderella Bride by Carole Mortimer. Brooding Hawk St. Claire, Duke of Stourbridge, believes Jane Smith to be a mere servant girl - albeit a remarkably attractive one! So when genteel Miss Jane is wrongly turned out of her home for inappropriate behaviour following their encounter, the duke takes her in as his ward. Although Hawk is the first man to make Jane's pulse race, she knows she cannot risk falling for his devastating charm. A marriage between them would be forbidden - especially if he were to discover the shameful truth about her... The Wayward Governess by Joanna Fulford. Threatened with an unwelcome marriage, Claire Davenport flees to the wilds of Yorkshire. There, the darkly enigmatic Marcus Edenbridge, Viscount Destermere, comes to her rescue - and employs her as governess to his orphaned niece. Finding his brother's killer has all but consumed Marcus until Claire enters his life. Her innocent beauty and quick mind are an irresistible combination, but she is forbidden fruit. It's not until their secrets plunge them both into danger that Marcus realises he cannot let happiness slip through his fingers again...
