AN EROTIC SECRET
As a maid at The Pleasure Emporium, Miss April Jardine has witnessed her share of sinful acts, but nothing as brazen as her own money-making scheme. By blackmailing the gentlemen named in the Madame’s private diaries, April can escape a life of drudgery—as long as she avoids the hangman’s noose. All goes swimmingly until she crosses paths with Lord Blackheath, the most powerful judge in England. His wicked gaze suggests he is torn between exposing April and seducing her—and April is only too pleased to oblige.
 
A SCANDALOUS EMBRACE
Blackheath has no doubt that the alluring firebrand could cripple his family’s finances and reputation with the bat of an eyelash. And yet…April outshines every dull Society belle he’s ever known, and nothing compares to the sensual bliss they share. But trusting this scheming Miss could cost him everything. Will he ever be able to welcome her into his home—and his heart?

Chapter 1

I hate this place.
It was the first thought of every day, but this day in particular.
Squirreled away in the still womb of the pantry, April had finally managed to steal five minutes away from the windowless scullery to read the Society pages. Clutching a pilfered candle and her newspaper, she could follow the chronicles and scandals of the titled elite, and pretend that she was among their number. And just when she began to disappear into the realm of the haut ton, she heard that irritating rhyme that seemed to have caught on at the brothel.
