  • Peu avant de prononcer ses voeux définitifs, Mélissande Deverell, une jeune et jolie novice, est enlevée au sein même de son couvent français par un audacieux ravisseur qui se révèle être un ami d'enfance, le chevalier Lucian Barret. Brièvement, ce dernier lui explique avoir pour mission de la ramener en Angleterre afin qu'elle y épouse son frère Roarke comme elle en a jadis émis le souhait. Outrée, Mélissande s'insurge. Elle s'est crue autrefois éprise de Roarke, mais elle n'était alors qu'une fillette et, depuis, ses rêves ont changé ! Et pourquoi celui-ci, après des années de silence, se souvient-il subitement de son existence ? Et plus inquiétant encore : pourquoi Lucian affirme-t-il vouloir, par ce rapt, « s'acquitter d'une lourde dette envers sa famille » ?

  • Ecosse, 1072. Lui ? Cristiana n´en revient pas. Par cette pluie battante, elle accorderait l´hospitalité à n´importe qui, même à un parfait étranger - mais à Duncan de Culcanon ? Que revient-il faire au château de Domhnaill après avoir trahi et rompu leurs fiançailles cinq ans plus tôt ? Ouvrir les portes de la forteresse à l´ombrageux guerrier, franchement, elle hésite... Non, bien sûr, que son hésitation ait quoi que ce soit à voir avec ses sentiments pour lui : il y a bien longtemps que Cristiana a chassé de ses pensées cet arrogant Ecossais. Ce qu´elle redoute, croit-elle, c´est d´exposer le précieux secret des Domhnaill et de mettre en péril toute sa famille...

  • "Pays de Galles, 1259 ... Nous voilà mariés, dit lord Barrett avec satisfaction. Tout a été parfait. Mais vous tremblez, ma mie. C'est l'émotion, je présume. Car qu'auriez-vous à craindre de moi ?
    « Tout ! » faillit crier Ariana. Oui, elle aurait tout à redouter de son mari quand il découvrirait qu'il avait épousé non pas la douce Ceara, comme il le croyait, mais sa cousine, Ariana. Seigneur, qu'avait-elle fait ? Lorsque lord Roch Barrett s'était présenté à leur porte en quête d'une épouse, lord Glamorgan l'avait autorisé à courtiser Ceara, mais cette dernière, peu désireuse de convoler, avait imploré sa cousine de prendre sa place. C'était donc elle, Ariana, que lord Barrett avait courtisée sans le savoir. Elle également à qui il venait de jurer amour, protection et fidélité. Un serment éternel qui risquait fort de tourner court dès que la vérité serait éventée...

  • L'éclat du desir

    Joanne Rock

    Lorsqu'elle découvre, par hasard, qu'on a dissimulé une minuscule caméra dans la bibliothèque qui surplombe son bureau, Marnie est partagée entre la fureur et l'embarras. La fureur, parce qu'elle ne supporte pas l'idée que quelqu'un ait voulu s'immiscer ainsi dans son intimité. L'embarras, car elle n'imaginait pas, en dansant en petite tenue devant son bureau, que quelqu'un profiterait de ce spectacle... Et sa confusion ne fait que croître à l'idée que l'admirateur secret qui a installé cette caméra puisse être Jake Brennan : le menuisier qui a construit cette bibliothèque, quelques semaines plus tôt, et qui, accessoirement, occupe depuis ce jour-là toutes ses pensées et nourrit chacun de ses fantasmes...
