This is a collection of short novellas
previously published as Harlequin
Historical Undone e-books. The stories
feature five very different writers creating sexually charged scenarios that give readers a taste of their writing styles, depth of characters and strong plot in the short space of a brief encounter. Well done!
Merrill's heroine plans on going to a bordello and "Seducing a Stranger" to uncover the truth about her husband's death, but she finds a few surprises, a sizzling passion and the man who holds her heart. In "The Viking's Forbidden Love-Slave," Willingham shows how an Irish captive finds a Norse warrior to be the most honorable man she's ever met. As his captive she discovers a powerful love and a man willing to risk his life for hers.
Allen proves that being "Disrobed and Dishonored" by a highwayman can be quite the fantasy as her heroine meets the man of her dreams. As William the Conqueror takes England, a brave knight conquers his bride in Brisbin's "A Night for Her Pleasure." A little of "Beauty and the Beast" mixes with the "Phantom of the Opera" in Gaston's heartwarming "The Unlacing of Miss Leigh" when a vicar's daughter answers an ad for a gentleman's mistress and discovers the hero she always dreamed of hiding behind a mask.
