The Bonny Bride (Graphic Novel)

Jenny Lennox Didn't Believe In Love

Not the lasting kind, anyway. Life was too hard for romance to survive for long. Marriage for money was best, she was sure - or had been until she met Harris Chisholm, earnest and penniless yet willing to gamble on life, love - and her!

Harris Chisholm was a man of his word. He had promised to deliver Janny Lennox into the arms of her intended. But could he willingly surrender the woman who'd made him more than himself, the woman who'd become his heart's true friend and partner? "Never!" his soul whispered. "Never...!"

"Deborah Hale has penned another winner, as she's once again pinned down the meaning of true love. This one is for the keep shelf to be read again and again." ~ The Old Book Barn Gazette

Scandal on His Doorstep

Title: Scandal on His Doorstep

Three Noblemen and a Baby!

Jack Warwick's carefree, rakish existence comes to an abrupt halt when an infant is abandoned in front of the Mayfair townhouse he shares with two friends. A note suggests that one of the three bachelors is the father…but which? And who will care for the child until they can locate her mother?

There is only one woman Jack would trust with such a delicate task. Once his dearest friend, Annabelle is now the penniless widow of his beloved cousin. Enlisting her help with the baby is the perfect excuse to provide the assistance she would otherwise be too proud to accept from him.

Annabelle agrees, with great reluctance. She cannot turn her back on an abandoned child. Both she and Jack know the pain of being unwanted. Yet she fears rekindling old feelings for him, which were once far more than friendly…until he broke her heart. Besides, Jack is determined to reform his ways, find and marry the child's mother, in spite of his growing passion for Annabelle!
