No matter what her family and friends say, Jenny knows she will never fall in love again. How can she, when her childhood sweetheart was one of the countless killed at Waterloo?
So when the Earl of Danfield proposes a marriage of convenience, it seems the perfect solution. He will secure his inheritance, and she will be spared the necessity of being paraded in society, forced to dance and flirt and do all the things her broken heart cannot do. His proposal will give her what she wants most. Peace.
But peace is the last thing she finds in her marriage. Her growing attraction to the earl brings with it guilt that she’s betraying her beloved Johnny. Her mother-in-law considers her an interloper. Her husband’s former lover makes it clear she doesn’t want it to be former. And when a supposed prank nearly kills her, Jenny has to wonder—now that the earl’s inheritance is assured, has she become an inconvenience to be eliminated?

Spirited Chelsea decided she’d sooner run away to London than return to her vain and selfish guardian, Aunt Augusta.But in her wildest dreams, she never imagined her dear godmother would arrange a Season—or convince the ton’s most eligible bachelor to take her under his wing.
Lord Wainwright was a handsome rogue who was not interested in coy games and missish airs. He expected a country mouse with no polish, but instead he found a thoroughly engaging minx, and was oddly irritated by all the male attention she received.
Chelsea with her unspoiled eye saw beyond Wainwright’s pursuit of hedonism to the intriguing man underneath. But to her shock, it appeared his heart belonged to her horrid Aunt Augusta!

Cherry Elton was beside herself! Her own mother had arranged a marriage for her to a man she had never even met. She had no choice but to run away.
Sky Westbrooke had no wish to marry, but his mischievous siblings sorely needed a firm maternal hand. Yet, how could he court his unseen bride, when into his employ had come the most remarkable, enchanting governess?
And Cherry, playing at being a governess was smitten by the handsome, cavalier Lord Westbrooke. His stolen kisses left her breathless—yet, he was betrothed to another. Whatever was a love struck governess to do?
**note: this is an updated version of an earlier novel written as Claudette Williams. The updated versions of Claudy's Claudette Williams titles are more sexually explicit than the original versions.

This is my second historical regency romance from the fabulous author, Claudy Conn. She delivered yet another excellent regency romance that makes me want to read even more Regency romances. I adore reading about Lords and Ladies.
Cherry Elton has been told by step-mother that she is to be married to a stranger. Cherry is not having it. She feels that her step-mother has done her wrong and ran away one night. The night when she runs away is when she comes across a very handsome man who helps her get to her destination and away from what her step-mother wants to do. When she arrives at her destination, she gets the idea to be a governess to a family that is looking for one.
She ends up running into the man who helped her that one night when she ran away when she becomes his family’s governess.
Sky Westbrooke, otherwise known as Lord Westbrooke, has decided he needs to get married so his younger siblings can have a maternal hand in the household. He has agreed to marry a woman he has never met before so he can finally make his family whole again. When he tries to visit his soon to be a bride, supposedly she is sick and not well enough to be seen by him.
But what he does not realize is that his soon-to-be bride is the woman he has already met, and from day one, he has been falling in love with her.
This book had me laughing and smiling at the same time because, in the end, Cherry and Sky had no idea that they both were meant to meet anyways.
I loved how Claudy Conn wrote this story and how everything developed at the end. It was a very deja vu book for both characters. They were destined to meet no matter what, but with different circumstances.
I loved the ending the most and how the characters found out the truth.
Cherry was a very spirited and free-will woman, who just wanted to live her life the way she wanted. She didn’t want her step-mother telling her what to do.
Lord Westbrooke was a very handsome man, who just wanted to help out his family because he needed help, especially with one of his brothers.
This book shows what happens when you are meant to meet that destined someone, no matter what. =)
Love it!
I recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romances and loves a great love story.
“Oh, Cherry Ripe” is currently Free at this time at all sites that I mentioned above. I don’t know for how long though, so get your copy before the price goes back up.

Lady Babs had already done one unforgivable thing: she had written a novel. It was under a pseudonym, of course, but the story she’d thought would sell only a few copies to help stave off her father’s creditors was becoming a sensation. Passion’s Seed had the beau monde in a panic, because it was all about ‘them’! If it were ever revealed that she, one of the aristocracy’s own, was the author, she would be ruined.
Now she was contemplating doing something equally scandalous. The ‘rules’ dictated that, as a woman, she had to wait until marriage to enjoy pleasures men were allowed when single. Lady Babs, however, had other ideas, for she had fallen in love with the man known as Lord Wildfire, a dashing duke with a penchant for the ladies but not for marriage.
But while she yearned for Lord Wildfire, another man lusted after her. And Sir Edward was willing to go to any lengths to make her his—including following his hunch that Lady Babs was somehow involved in the publication of Passion’s Seed …
