Alexandra Hawkins All Afternoon with a Scandalous Marquess Simon Jefferes, the Marquess of Sainthill, has done the unthinkable—he's fallen in love. The so-called "Saint" has spent his life gambling, dallying with women, and satisfying his every whim. And he fully intended to continue his wicked ways, until he met the mysterious, exotic, and irresistible Madame Venna—the one woman he can't have...and the only one he's ever wanted for more than an evening. The proprietress of the Golden Pearl, one of London's most exclusive brothels, Madame Venna takes pride in the lush, decadent club she's created. With a half-mask to conceal her identity, she's careful to safeguard something even more valuable—her heart. But Saint is determined to tear down the walls she's built around herself, and to finally expose the truth—that Madame Venna is a woman very much in love...with him.

Notorious, handsome, and decadent, the Lords of Vice prowl the glittering ballrooms of Regency London-- breaking rules and hearts with equal aplomb. But even the wildest rogue must eventually meet his match... Seduce Lady Juliana Ivers and then cast her aside: Those are his sister's instructions. Alexius Braverton, Marquess of Sinclair--known as Sin to the ton--is happy enough to oblige, especially when he catches a glimpse of his target. Juliana is completely unlike the empty-headed chits who barely hold his attention for a week. A true gentleman would leave her to find a worthy suitor. But then, a Lord of Vice would never claim to be a gentleman. Juliana is expected to marry well to improve her family's finances, even if she secretly longs to make a living through her musical compositions. A dalliance can only complicate matters, though not even practical Juliana can help succumbing to the aptly named Sin. But one unforgettable night will draw her into a scandalous affair--and a seduction begun as sport will soon become deliciously, dangerously real...

Dusk with a Dangerous Duke Alexandra Hawkins They were children when the Duke of Huntsley was introduced to Lady Grace Kearly. The young duke—nicknamed "Hunter"—took one look at his future bride and thought only of escaping his responsibilities to his family. Marriage was for grown-ups and Hunter still had years of skirt-chasing ahead of him. But now the time has come for Hunter to heed the call: if this Lord of Vice hopes to keep all of his inheritance, he'll have to claim his long-neglected betrothed... With her twenty-first birthday approaching, Lady Grace dreads the thought of marrying the duke she has met only once—especially since he's grown into a notorious rake who will probably beget his heir and abandon her in the country while he pursues fresh game in London. So when Lady Grace coolly decides to call the wedding off, even Hunter is surprised by his refusal to let her go. Suddenly, the notion of claiming and taming this green-eyed beauty is one challenge he cannot resist...

""It's very, very comforting, it's very funny and whenever you think things in this country are pretty bonkers then you can read this book from the thirties and realise 'Ah, they've always been fairly similar' ... I love it."" IAN HISLOP As a young Scot exiled to the alien landscape of 1920s England, Douglas Cameron finds himself navigating his way through the intimacies and excesses of a nation undergoing great cultural and social upheaval. Witnessing the last gasps in the demise of a privileged earlier world, our hero finds himself negotiating archetypal English situations, including the lavish country house weekend, a traditional fox hunt, international diplomacy at the League of Nations and, most famously, a village cricket match - all as part of his efforts to compile a book capturing the essence of Englishness. Affectionately narrated, eloquent and poignant, yet at times just slightly ruthless and often with an acerbic note of satire, this description of England in the throes of social turmoil remains an hilarious, irreverent yet compassionate portrait. ""5 stars A CLASSIC OF ENGLISH HUMOUR"" Since winning the James Tait Black Memorial Prize on publication in 1933, England, Their England has retained an enduring appeal for generations and is now regarded as a classic of literary humour. "5 stars - "So much more than just the cricket match."" "5 stars - "Fun Everlasting."" "5 stars - "Wonderful."" "5 stars - "Such a good book.""
