The Red Door Leads to . . . The British Museum!

An Encounter at the Museum

A New Anthology by

Claudia Dain
Michelle Marcos
Deb Marlowe
Ava Stone

You are cordially invited to the British Museum-where in each room you'll find a secret romance waiting to be discovered.  Four acclaimed authors of Regency historical novels tell the exciting tales of lovers who found their way to happily ever after amid the art and artifacts.  Treasures--and pleasures--await!

A Chance Encounter by Claudia Dain
 Jamie Caversham is a bastard, quite literally. He is bound for Canada and a new life after one last visit to the British Museum . . . where he meets Elizabeth Ardenzy. Elizabeth is betrothed (nearly), her life planned to perfection by her father. Unless a bastard convinces her to run away to Canada first.

Bad Luck Encounter by Michelle Marcos
Anyone would think that a bookish spinster with bad eyesight has had her share of bad luck. But when "accidents" begin to happen just as her younger sister is trying to find a husband, Isha Elmwood spots the perpetrator: Mr. Bad Luck himself.  Trouble is, she's the only one who can see him. Isha must find a way to put a stop to this handsome knave without subjecting herself to the worst luck of all: losing her heart.

An Unexpected Encounter by Deb Marlowe
Tall, practical girls might not be worth much in a man's world, but Miss Lisbeth Moreton knows she's worth more than the squire's prized heifer.  To change her fate, she's run off to a date with destiny at the British Museum.  Her would-be swain never shows, but an unexpected encounter with Lord Cotwell and his lonely ward might lead to altogether new prospects . . . and perhaps to love.

Encounter with an Adventurer by Ava Stone

 Lucinda Potts would do just about anything to get out of her brother's home and out from under her hateful sister-in-law's thumb. After an encounter with the gadabout and notorious Lord Brookfield, Lucy is more determined than ever to escape London for a life of adventure. Unfortunately, the his lordship seems just as determined to stand firmly in her way.

 Drive Me Crazy (Going the Distance Series ~ Book 1) 

a new contemporary romance by Marquita Valentine

He's going the distance...for love.

NASCAR racer, Carter Ambrose, has finally decided to take his doctor’s advice and find a new occupation before another wreck on the track kills him. Only his doctor hadn’t counted on his little sister’s best friend, Melanie Ann Smith, crashing his weeks of solitude with her short skirts and platform heels. And that’s not the least of his problems. His mother has decided that she wants grandchildren and the only woman that's good enough for the job-his ex-fiance.

Twenty-four year old Troublemaker Extraordinaire, Melanie Ann Smith, isn’t asking for much out of life: a house without wheels, to travel further than her home state and her best friend’s older brother, Carter Ambrose. Only three things stand in her way: juggling all of her odd jobs, keeping her daddy from gambling away all of their money and getting Carter to see her as a woman.

Soon Melanie and Carter agree to a temporary relationship. One with benefits that is mutually satisfying in every way, or so each believes. And just when they are ready admit their feelings, family secrets are exposed, threatening Melanie and Carter's fragile relationship.

Will Carter risk it all for love, or will Melanie be left holding the trophy for second place?
