| She’ll have to learn to submit to him…her life depends on it. “How will I lie beside him at night and act like I’m falling in love with him? Last night it came easy, but now that I know what he’s capable of, I fear for my life.” Marrying the handsome prince seemed a grand idea, until she caught sight of him murdering his father. She wanted to be queen, but at what cost? This collection of three steamy romances include: Palace Secrets, Maiden Claimed, and Grave Misfortune. Palace Secrets At twenty-three, Princess Isabella must settle down for the sake of her kingdom. Caught up in a secret affair with her lady-in-waiting, Hannah, the princess knows it can only last for so long. When Prince Alexander arrives to court her, he confides that his father is on his death bed, and he will be crowned king soon. Isabella hastily agrees to the proposal, desiring to be queen, knowing little about her soon-to-be husband. Maiden Claimed It was supposed to be a simple trip to the market in Paris. Nothing for Lady Hannah is ever simple. One secret after another. The lies are mounting up. Lady Hannah has made a deal with the devil. Worse, she’s falling in love with him. There’s no turning back. Grave Misfortune Married to a gambler and drunk, Helene is the madame for a brothel. When Vincent, a royal guard from the palace, arrives at her doorstep and tries to defend her honor, little does he know she's both married to the man and a madame for the establishment. Publishers Note: Murder, secrets, and lies combine with ménage and power exchange in this title previously released as Her Ruined Reputation by Bridget Banks.
