Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly handsome English brothers who are all on the lookout for love. (Except Alex. He´s a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton because he´s wicked hot but super awkward around girls.) Barrett English, aka ´´the Shark´´, is the fair-haired firstborn of the English brothers and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way. Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett´s childhood estate. The daughter of his family´s gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom. When business partners suggest that a fiancée might soften Barrett´s image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the job of fiancée. And while love isn´t necessarily on Barrett´s radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves? 1.

Seduced by Stratton is the fourth of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the lookout for love. (Except for Barrett, Fitz and Alex, because they´re taken. And Weston, who is still riding the ugly-love roller coaster with one of the Atwell sisters.) Stratton English, the hottest, youngest, most devastatingly handsome CFO in Philadelphia, has a problem: women make him nervous. Really nervous. Catastrophically nervous. Socially awkward to an extreme, he´s apt to blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, and it´s rarely something a woman wants to hear. Quietly in love with his neighbor, Amy, he has no idea how to make his move, but he is committed to figuring out a way to seduce her. Valeria Campanile, who Stratton knows through one of his four brothers, is a PhD candidate who moonlights as a dance instructor on the side. Ironically, even though Val studies courtship rituals, she can´t seem to find herself courted. Pursued by boys from the ´´old neighborhood´´ who promise to overlook the fact that she´s so smart, she longs to meet someone who romances her mind as well as her heart. When Stratton helps Valeria with a financial problem, she is anxious to return the favor. But will Stratton, who needs Val´s expertise to win Amy, find himself seducing Val instead? 1.

January 1954. Mists cover the hills around Selchester. Someone at the research facility known as the Atomic is leaking secrets to Soviet Russia, and when nuclear scientist Bruno Rothesay goes missing, the British Intelligence Services are convinced he´s the mole. Hugo Hawksworth isn´t so sure. Then a body turns up, and Hugo´s instincts are proven correct. But if Rothesay wasn´t selling secrets to the Soviets, who is? As Hugo digs deeper into buried connections and unlikely coincidences, he knows there´s more to this case than his London superiors believe. But following his instincts will pit him against the Establishment - and tangle him once again in the poisonous legacy of the late Lord Selchester. As he closes in on the truth, Hugo finds himself confronted by an adversary who will stop at nothing, in a case that will prove the most personal of his career. With a touch of Downton Abbey, a whisper of Agatha Christie and a nod to John Le Carré, A Matter Of Loyalty is the third and final book in this delightfully classic and witty murder-mystery series. 1.

Jemma Ramsden is a wild thing in a noblewoman´s body-so thinks Gordon Dwyre, Laird Barras, watching her galloping on horseback through her brother´s lands. Bold, headstrong, beautiful: the perfect bride for a lusty Scots warrior. He might be able to convince her, too, if she would hear his suit. But Barras doesn´t wait to be handed what he wants. When he´s forced to rescue her from English ruffians, he makes sure she stays safe-by locking her in his castle. Jemma is hardly an eager captive. She has no horse and no freedom, and she is an Englishwoman in a hostile Scots keep: a stranger without work or friend. Barras seems determined to charm her-even tempt forbidden desires, a daring game that leaves Jemma desperate for more. But with passion, love, and a new life within her grasp, Jemma is in more danger than even she knows… 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ray Chase.
