Alex is determined to break all the rules and have the Irish beauty in his bed – and Merrow can’t argue with the boss!

And even if she did, Merrow's tried - and failed - at settling down before, so she's determined to simply enjoy dating men without any strings attached. But when Alex turns up again, she realizes that that is easier said than done!

Alex is stunned when he finds out that he will be working in close proximity with Merrow, and the more time the billionaire playboy spends with the Irish beauty, the more he realizes that she is perfect mistress material. However, Alex soon realizes that he wants Merrow to be his - in and out of the bedroom!

Will Alex be able to show Merrow that he will not break her heart?

Witty, sensual and absolutely unputdownable, His Mistress, His Terms is Trish Wylie at her best! Merrow is the sort of heroine every woman wants to be, whilst Alex is the kind of man every woman wants to have!

Fresh, hilarious and feel-good, His Mistress, His Terms is a stylish Modern Heat you will not want to miss!

An Honorable Rogue - Carol Townend

Title: The Novice Bride

Author: Carol Townend

Line: Historical

Release month: NA Feb 2008

The S-Factor: Sensual



Benedict Silvester is a rogue and a flirt! His skill as a musician means he is always travelling...and he charms women wherever he goes. Yet he is on a special mission: to accompany Rozenn Kerber to England.

Rose is frustrated with Ben’s frivolous behaviour and annoyed that his wicked smile continually occupies her thoughts, for he can never offer the stability she craves. But on their travels, Rose begins to suspect that he may have a serious side, that Ben is more than he appears...


An Honorable Rogue is another winner from historical romance author Carol Townend and is another engaging exploration of life at the time of the Norman Conquest! The story begins in France and follows Benedict as he accompanies Rose on an adventurous passage to England. However, alongside the physical journey, Rose is also taken on a personal, sexual awakening, journey-of-discovery. Ben is a longstanding family friend, and although Rose finds him attractive, she has never allowed herself to dream that he could offer her the security and stability she craves. Ben is a lovable hero, full of warmth and charm. Unbeknown to Rose he has a secret undercover mission which adds mystery and excitement to the plot. Rose is an ambitious and strong woman who modern readers will find easy to identify with. She struggles to fit into society and her endeavours give her character an admirable inner strength. The relationship between the hero and heroine is frequently heartbreaking for the reader because Ben is obviously in love with Rose, yet she refuses to focus on his positive side, only seeing the negatives which he wraps up with his easy going, happy-go-lucky nature.

The author gives a fantastic attention to detail which enables the reader to feel like they are accompanying Ben & Rose on their voyage. The additional emotional journey that both the characters undertake has the story brimming with sensuality, tension and suspense making for real page-turning qualities. Carol Townend is adept at writing historical novels and An Honorable Rogue is one of her finest. Rich in historical detail it vividly brings a long-gone era to life, and is an utterly romantic read and a real winner. Highly recommended.

The Italian's Captive Virgin by India Grey

Title: The Italian's Captive Virgin
Author: India Grey
Line: Mills and Boon Modern Romance
Release Month: January 2008
The S- Factor: Sensuous
Back Blurb:
Italian tycoon Angelo Emiliani knows Anna Delafield is playing games: he wants to buy her French château, but it seems she’ll do anything to stop him. So he decides to teach her a lesson! Anna will be his VIP captive for a few days on his yacht. Hopefully, that should show her he’s not a man to be toyed with…

But as cabin fever sets in, passions erupt, and Anna quickly realises the price of stopping Angelo has just got higher. Now there’s more at stake than just saving the château… Anna’s at risk of losing her virginity and more…!

India Grey's second steamy Modern Romance, The Italian's Captive Virgin, is absolutely brilliant! Intense, emotional, passionate and wonderfully romantic, The Italian's Captive Virgin is the kind of book you will devour in a single sitting!

Anna Delafield is determined that property devloper Angelo Emiliani will not get his hands on her beloved Chaetau Belle-Eden. Anna vows that she will not let some cold hearted industrialist desecrate her childhood home and destroy a place that is full of wonderful memories for her. But Angelo never allows anything to stand in his way. However, he hasn't counted on Anna...

Sexy, vivacious and truly unique, Anna is nothing like the women he usually dates. But Angelo is strictly a one-night stand kind of guy. However, it looks like Anna may change his mind.

But both Angelo and Anna have secrets. Secrets that could destroy any chance of a possible future together...

India Grey is absolutely sensational! In The Italian's Captive Virgin, readers will adore Angelo, a gorgeous Alpha male who'll make scores of women melt in a puddle of lust; whilst they will love Anna for her strength, her resilience, but also her vulnerabilty.

The Italian's Captive Virgin is a wonderfully passionate romantic tale about two wounded souls coming together, which will delight and enchant fans of Modern Romance everywhere!
