Improperly Wed

The Bride Is Married To Me.

Responsible Belinda Wentworth has always been a dutiful society daughter. Except for when she married her family’s sworn enemy, Colin Granville, Marquess of Easterbridge, in a quickie Las Vegas wedding—which she annulled hours later.

Or so she thought.

Because just as she’s about to say “I do” to a respectable man, impossibly sexy Colin bursts into the church with the news that they’re still married. And he takes his vows very seriously. Especially the one about attaining what no Granville has before him: a takeover of the Wentworths. Including his wife—body and heart.

"[Anna] DePalo's wrap-up of her Aristocratic Grooms series is a tempting and fun escapade amidst the rich and mighty, who turn out to be not so different after all." – Pat Cooper, RT Book Reviews

Under the Tycoon's Protection


She was a grown woman and a successful prosecutor, yet Connor Rafferty's raffish greeting made Allison Whittaker feel like that privileged teen he'd hauled from a blue-collar bar years before. It seemed that her family had employed the security tycoon's services to safeguard her from recent death threats. Well, she could take care of herself.

It was his kiss she could hardly handle.

His barely restrained ardor should have been her warning never to let him move into her home, mere footsteps from her bedroom. After all, he'd featured prominently in her fantasies, even though he'd resisted being anything other than brotherly toward her. Until now. When neither of them could afford to be distracted . . . .

"4 1/2 stars! Under the Tycoon’s Protection is a wonderfully delightful book of two people at odds with each other where passion and anger are only a breath a part.
