In order to keep the blog looking pristine and nice (^o^ hehehe..), I will delete posts of sold books and update the books onto my 'SOLD BOOKS' list. (hmmm... try reading the sentence after the comma several times quickly.. Ooopss.. tongue twister ^~^; )

Anyway, hopefully you can find some books that you like on my blog!!

Here they were, stuck with two mortgages, mounting debts and a miserable adolescent daughter who hadn't wanted to move anyway.

Then Marcus Witherstone came into their lives -- and at first it seemed he would solve all their problems.

He knew the perfect tenants from London who would rent their old house -- glamorous PR girl Ginny and almost-famous Piers. Everything was going to be OK.

But soon Marcus found himself involved with Liz in a way he'd never intended. Keeping his adulterous trysts secret from Anthea was uncomfortably easy -- most of the time her head was firmly buried in IMPROVE YOUR CHILD's I.Q.

Neither of them had time to notice that teenage Alice was developing a desperate passion for the tenants, Piers and Ginny.

Synopsis from FictionDB:

The RULES OF MARRIAGE...according to Miss Annabel Essex

A husband must be:

RICH.
Make that very rich. She's had enough of leaky roofs and thread-worn clothing.

ENGLISH.
London is the center of the civilized world, and Annabel has a passion for silk and hot water.

AMIABLE.
Good-looking would be nice, but not necessary. Same for intelligent.
Isn't she lucky? She's found just the man! And her chosen spouse is nothing like the impoverished Scottish Earl of Ardmore, who has nothing but his gorgeous eyes, his brain -- and his kisses -- to recommend him.

So what cruel twist of fate put her in a carriage on her way to Scotland with just that impoverished earl and all the world thinking they're man and wife? Sleeping in the same bed? Not to mention the game of words started by the earl -- in which the prize is a kiss. And the forfeit...

Well. They are almost married, after all!

Synopsis from FictionDB:

A LADY IN THE MIDDLE
Now, she is one of the most well-known ladies in London ... living on the edge of scandal -- desired by many men, but resisting giving herself to any one.

A DUCHESS IN LOVE
Finally, Camden, the Duke of Girton, has returned home, to discover that his naive bride has blossomed into the toast of the ton. Which leaves Cam in the most uncomfortable position of discovering that he has the bad manners to be falling in love -- with his own wife!

Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince . . . and decides he's anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman--a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions.

Gabriel "likes" his fiancEe, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't "love" her. Obviously, he should be "wooing" his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him.

Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after.

Unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble . . .

Unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune . . .

Unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

Yet the Earl of Gryffyn knows too well that the price required to gain a coronet is often too high. Damon Reeve, the earl, is determined to protect the exquisite Roberta from chasing after the wrong destiny.

Can Damon entice her into a high-stakes game of his own, even if his heart is likely to be lost in the venture?
