Overview

A YANKEE PRIVATEER

In Regency England anything is possible if one has the money and influence. The devious Marquess of Cargrave does, and he blackmails his American grandson into becoming his heir. Jason Beaumont, former Yankee privateer, finds himself the new Earl of Falconridge and on the verge of being leg shackled. He is not happy.

AN ENGLISH HEIRESS

The Honorable Rachael Fairchild, daughter to Cargrave's oldest friend, Viscount Harleigh, is threatened by her father with even more odious marriage choices if she does not wed the man the Ton has labeled "the Yankee earl." But Jason is a toad stool, nothing more than a jumped up pirate. She is not happy.

A DEVIL'S BARGAIN

The two first collide, quite literally, while somebody is shooting at Jason. In spite of the danger, he and Rachel strike sparks from each other in a battle of wits. Rachel devises a plan that will enable Jason is to escape England, thus freeing them both from a fate worse than death--marriage...to each other! If only the Yankee clodpole weren't so damnably witty and handsome. Jason quickly sees that his sharp-tongued "Countess" is right. They must work together to avoid leg-shackling...if only she weren't so damnably bright and beautiful. As the squabbling pair matches wits with the manipulative old marquess, mysterious assassins and kidnappers menace them. Rachel begins to wonder if marrying the wild Yankee would be so terrible after all. Jason slowly realizes that only a fool would not claim the willful "Countess" as his own, and the Yankee earl is nobody's fool.
