A Christmas Surprise Emily Murdoch
Every year for thirty years Lord Robert, the Viscount of Marchwood, throws a Christmas Ball. And this year, it is time for his daughter, Lady Audrey, her to be introduced into society: her first, best, and potentially only chance of securing a husband - especially as the Marchwood money is running dry. But headstrong Lady Audrey is not sure she wants a husband. She is not ready to leave everything she knows, and the thought of abandoning her father breaks her heart. She's determined that only someone truly special will take her away from her home. But with the ball centred around a masquerade theme, everyone is in disguise, and a handsome stranger threatens to steal Audrey’s heart. Could he hold the key to her heart? And when she unmasks him will it be a good, or bad, Christmas Surprise?
A Michaelmas Wager Emily Murdoch
How much would you gamble for love? Rufus has been thrust unexpectedly into riches, and gained a new set of friends who delight in wagers and bets, nothing too big to gamble on – even marriage. When a tipsy party joke becomes a wager on Rufus’ marriage, he knows he should said no. But Juliana, the unknowing focus of the gamble, is not the simple young woman Rufus’ friends take her for. The challenge of understanding this intriguing woman and keeping the truth of the wager from her starts to wear thin on Rufus. Especially when his belief in marriage is so greatly rocked, and his family history is sunk in crime, alcoholism, and prison. Will it be possible for Rufus to charm the winning Juliana? Does he owe her the truth about his initial interest in her? And who win this Michaelmas wager?
