    Readers will appreciate THE NAKED BARON as humor and heat combine for an engaging historical.

    At twenty five years of age, Lady Grace Belmont is elated not to be at Blandon where her father is obsessed with marrying her off, but is unhappy to be on display during her first London season as the men stare at her bosom. She knows she is too old, too tall and a bit too plump to have anyone truly interested in her. Grace is especially grateful to her widowed Aunt Kate who is sponsoring and chaperoning her, which keeps Grace away from her father who has been arranging for her a marriage after providing no seasons for his daughter.------------

    However David Wilton, Baron Dawson, observes Grace in a garden and thinks she is the loveliest woman he has ever seen. He tries to steal a kiss from her and plans to court her as he wants her like no one ever before. At the same his Uncle Alex Wilton sees his beloved Kate. Years ago when they were younger than Grace is now, he proposed to her but her martinet father gave her to someone else. Alex plans to try again to win Kate's heart, unaware he always owned it. He also wants to insure history does not repeat itself with his nephew and her niece starring in their former roles.-------------------

    With two heated Regency romances, Sally Mackenzie provides her readers with a fun, often amusing, but always entertaining novel. The story line is brisk from the onset as the older couple seeks a second chance at love while hoping to steer their younger relatives to an easy landing in a field of love; only their efforts lead to scandal. Readers will appreciate THE NAKED BARON as humor and heat combine for an engaging historical.-----------------

    The Crown Jewel in Sally MaKenzie¿s ¿Naked¿ Series!

    Lady Grace Belmont was having her first carefree time of her life. It just happened to be in London during the debutante season at the ripe old age of 25. She was grateful to be spreading her wings in the company of her beloved Aunt Kate away from her over-bearing and domineering father, boring soon-to-be husband and stuffy country life. Her widowed Aunt Kate had invited Grace to spend time in London prior to her arranged nuptials of course under her careful chaperoned supervision. Kate planned all this out very intricately but what she never anticipated that while out showing her niece the London experience a long forgotten man would rekindle feelings she thought had long been buried and emotions she was convinced had died. Why now after all these years was her first and deepest love back in London and with Kate a widow was she now free to do as she pleased because if so she wanted very much to please Mr. Alex Wilton.<BR/><BR/>On her first evening out Grace meets David Wilton, Baron Dawson of Riverview and it was hard not being wooed by him, impossible to stop herself from going out to the garden for an innocent stroll or stop him from stealing an innocent kiss. While Grace was naive David was not and he knew that they should not be together because he was the result of the first Wilton-Belmont scandal and his parents has caused the hatred between two families but perhaps David and Grace could bury the feud deep in their love. <BR/><BR/>But Grace did not know any of this and after meeting David she did not care about anything but the feel of their first touch and all the sensations created with his words of endearment and caring. Grace grew up with a father who had little use for his tall, gangly daughter but David seemed to accept everything about her including those facts that others were against. She was neither thin nor petite but Grace soon became aware that David cared not for her supposed imperfections but he cared for everything that was the person of Grace Belmont. Her tall fame enticed him, her full figure aroused him and very expansive bosom absorbed his every capable desire without judgment or criticism. Even though David did know of the history between the families it did not sway him from going after what he felt was the only woman for him ¿ a woman he wanted as his wife from the moment he first saw her enter the ballroom. <BR/><BR/>There are so many hurdles to overcome and much conflict for Grace when she does discover who David is and what his parents had done to cause such conflict for her father. But even knowing all this she does agree to be a free and fun loving woman for a bit of time when they all join up at a house party ¿ back in the country of all places. Try as she might she does fall as much in love with David as he is with her and while her father may have other plans Grace now has a mind of her own and feels she may be strong enough to make a decision for a husband based on love for convenience.<BR/><BR/>David seizes on this opportunity with Grace not aware that many surprises await him at the house party - some he enjoys and others he is still trying to understand. None of these distractions stops David from wooing Grace and trying to convince her that they are meant to be together and that insistent set of twins that keep following him around are an annoyance and no more.<BR/><BR/>David is also trying to
