Dark Ransom (1993)

Despite all it's flaws - and this book has several, it's a decent enough read. For some reason it's hard to put down and the main character is basically likeable. The hero is not. He's boring, there's little appeal, and he's plain infuriating. The heroine is sweet so I like that about her but her...

A Nanny for Christmas (2011)

Phoebe's praise was warm when Carrie came to clear the table, and she saw the rather austere face soften. 'Just nursery food, miss, but nice to have it appreciated. That Cindy never wanted anything but steak,' she added with a snort. 'May I help carry things down to the kitche...

Inherited by Her Enemy

She should have fought him off, she told herself angrily. She’d been mad to expose herself to such danger. Even crazier to try and pretend the danger did not exist.     It had been a shock to discover that Andrew had planned to live at the château.     And ...

Inherited by Her Enemy by Sara Craven


By dint of standing on her bed, she had managed to open her window to its fullest extent, but the little room was still close and airless. She crept into Nicky's darkened—and blessedly cool—room and checked that he was deeply and peacefully asleep before using his bathroom to take a shower, and c...


Marriage by Deception

Because he’d promised as much. And he wasn’t anywhere near her. He was—dear God—on the other side of the room. But she didn’t speak—or move. Just watched, in total sensual thrill, as he stripped off his shirt and let it fall. She let her eyes roam, hungrily absorbing the width of his shoulders, t...

The Bedroom Barter

He knocked lightly, and waited, but there was no reply, and after a moment he opened the door and went quietly in.He trod silently over to the bed and stood looking down at its occupant, his brows drawn together in a frown. The bedside lamp was still on, so she must have fallen asleep as soon as ...

A Place of Storms

The sky had been overcast and threatening all day, and now that threat was being fulfilled in long silver spears of rain, dashing themselves against the ancient panes.

The Count's Blackmail Bargain

The noble Conte Alessio Ramontella lifted his aching head from the pillow, and, groaning faintly from the effort, attempted to focus his eyes.

'No,' was all he said.At that moment Julie herself came in, eyes bright and cheeks glowing.'Hello, everyone.' She almost danced round the table to kiss Chas and bestow a swift hug upon Lisa.

The Seduction Game by Sara Craven


She could even be almost glad she hadn’t slammed the sitting room door behind her as she’d been sorely tempted to do. But there wasn’t any other cause for rejoicing. She’d carefully collected all her clothes and personal possessions and transferred them to the spare room, before returning to the ...



She hoped drowsily that it had nothing to do with the wildly erotic dreams which had assailed her during the night. God knows what part of my subconscious they were dredged up from, she thought, half amused, half guilty, as she stretched languidly, and opened her eyes—to find it wasn't the autumn...

Island of the Heart

Vast and high- ceilinged, it contained a cavernous wardrobe in walnut with elegant brass handles, and a matching dressing-table, tallboy and old- fashioned bedstead of equally generous proportions.

Seduction Never Lies (2013)

The Right Bride?

CHAPTER ELEVEN ALLIE poured shower gel into her cupped hand and began to work it into her skin, wondering as she did so if she would ever feel loved again.

Desperate Measures

Desperate Measures by Sara Craven

A Gift for a Lion

Joanna lost count of the rooms and corridors she saw, all of which seemed to twist and turn eventually back on to that central gallery.

Bride of Desire

‘The rest I am sure you can manage for yourself.’  ‘Thank you,’ she said with icy politeness. ‘But I think I’ve had enough sun for one day.’  ‘Perhaps you are wise,’ he said, faint amusement in his voice. ‘Why take more risks with such a charming body?’  Her throat tightened. ‘Thank you for your ...

One Reckless Night

'I just-walked in from the street.'  'A lucky chance,' he agreed. 'But it doesn't alter the fact that I've been searching for you.

A High Price to Pay

His Wedding-Night Heir

'I've never seen you in any- thing but black, white and grey. Now suddenly you're in Technicolor.' He surveyed her moodily. 'You look—amazing. But I feel as if I've never known you at all.'

His Forbidden Bride

And that was what she had to think. Because anything else was impossible.

And also, she realised, wincing, how much she'd enjoyed h...

Escape Me Never

Cassie felt the first icy drops, as she waited on the edge of the pavement, and grimaced inwardly with irritation. She'd left the flat so hurriedly that morning that she'd failed to bring either an umbrella or even a scarf, and a heavy shower oh her newly washed, carefully blow-dried and discipli...

Dragon's Lair

'Fool!' she castigated herself sharply, reaching for a handkerchief and scrubbing at her eyes. It was madness, all this raking up of the past. What had happened between Gethyn and herself was past, done and quite irrevocable. She knew that. Why else was she here? By letting memory have its way wi...

His Untamed Innocent

Wild Melody

She had overslept after a strangely disturbed night and so missed the tube train she had wanted to catch and was forced to wait several minutes for the next.

Wife in the Shadows (2011)

So the purpose of his visit was clearly no secret, he thought grimly, as he followed in Massimo’s stately wake, aware that his elegant silk tie seemed to be on the point of strangling him, and realising that, probably for the first time in his adult life, he was nervous about a meeting with a gir...

Comparative Strangers

‘It’s not too…’‘Far from it,’ Jane assured her. ‘It’s obvious you’re not wearing a bra, of course, because the thing has hardly any back, but that’s the only way you can tell. That high halter front is very discreet. And I love all those masses of tiny pleats in the skirt.’‘Culottes, actually.’ A...

Witch's Harvest

She was surrounded by walls of greenery, shaded by an unbroken canopy of leaves. It was very still. Abby paused a moment to catch her breath. She had the unnerving impression that the forest was holding its breath too, and that unseen eyes were waiting for her to make some kind of move. And she w...

Dawn Song

Jerome, lost in thought, made no attempt to initiate any immediate conversation, and Meg was thankful for it. It gave her time to pull herself together, recover at least the appearance of composure. How quickly things could change, she thought shakily. Only an hour or so before they'd been compan...

His Convenient Marriage

"I'm sorry," she said at last. "I don't think I quite understand." "It's perfectly simple. I've just proposed to you—asked you to become my wife." Miles sounded totally cool about it. "Look on it, if you want, as a new kind of contract." Her lips moved. "Marriage is—hardly a business arrangement....

Past All Forgetting

Janna moistened her lips desperately, aware of the curious glances from the older women, but her throat muscles seemed paralysed and would not obey her. And then, as if in answer to an unspoken prayer, the sound of men's voices was heard and the drawing-room door opened to admit the remainder of ...

Night of the Condor

Did Carlota forget to mention it?''I must have misunderstood.' She handed the baby back to his mother, and stood up, brushing down her skirt, hoping that the dim light from the verandah's smoky lamps would disguise the rising colour in her face. 'I'm starving as well.' She was aware she was babbl...

The Forced Marriage

Devil and the Deep Sea

And before dinner she'd found all her new clothes unpacked and neatly put away in the closets.

Moth to the Flame

She wanted to ask where they were going, but felt it was better to pretend that she knew, and she tried not to look too eagerly around her as they drove through part of the city she had never seen before.

Unguarded Moment

She chose a dress to wear to dinner, then put it back and picked another one at random, tossing it on to the bed. It wasn't as in any way becoming as her first choice, but that was all to the good. She was here to work, which was something she had lost sight of for a while.She had come disastrous...

Alien Vengeance

She could offer neither explanation nor excuse for herself. This was a man she had cause only to hate. A man whose name she did not even know. A man who was using her as the instrument of a vengeance she did not even comprehend.     Why then, in spite of everything, had she fa...

The Marchese's Love-Child

his brows snapping together as he saw her. 'Buongiorno,' he murmured after a pause.

Polly shifted uneasily from one fo...

She cannot remain here.' The new Lady Kerslake's voice, almost strident in its vehemence; resounded plainly through the closed drawing room door, freezing Morwenna where she stood, her hand already raised to knock. A number of thoughts chased wildly through her head as she assimilated Cousin Patr...

A Bad Enemy

'But Murray couldn't—he wouldn't.''Wrong on both counts, I'm afraid.'
